Okay, blah. This is going to sound like a pretty absurd idea and I don't know if people will be interested but I think it'll work. For me, at least. I am sitting in a pool of desperation and can't seem to study for more than 35 minutes per day atm, if that. Considering we are now in mid-may and our exams are literally tomorrow/have started, I thought it'd be worth a try making this.

So how this works is that if you wish to participate then you post in this thread stating what your next exam is and how many days you have left for it. E.g.

"Biology Unit 2 - Five days."

TSR-ians will then comment on your post on whether they think you can do it. If they don't believe you can learn the content you have stated in the specified time and achieve a grade A then be ready to receive some responses that may not be very great. On the other hand, if they believe you're more than capable then you'll be hopefully drowning in tons of motivational responses. Honesty is highly recommended. For this to work at it's best, we'll assume that all members who post have done 0 revision towards the exam. Once you have finished revising for your exam, then you post in the thread to let us know of your achievement and we'll tick you off the list in the OP. I think that sense of satisfaction will feel great and hopefully motivate you to continue revising.

This might initially sound like a strange/de-motivating idea, but I personally actually find that when people don't believe in me, it makes me all the more determined to prove them wrong and I end up working 10 times harder in order to achieve what they don't think I will be able to.

At the same time, it might be nice to have that extra support/study-boost knowing that people are by your side and helping you through.

And maybe just maybe, for once we can actually use negativity for the good.

Edit: Upcoming exams.

Good idea OP, it should be motivating.

Okay so I have a History Tsarist Russia exam in 7 days. :indiff:

I've covered content, don't know it all though. Attempted about four or five papers. I doubt anyone would have an answer for specifically Tsarist Russia, but if anyone has any ideas for History generally with what grades I can achieve or anything I can do to remember content fast then please help out this lost soul.

I've got the exact same exams as you on Tuesday, I think, and I'm not ready for anyone of them.

Okay, maybe French reading if I'm pushing it, but that's it.

Yep, I know I should've prepared better but okay I'm going to properly start at 9:00pm. Work up until 1am. Then wake up early tomorrow to fit in a couple more hours. Hopefully it'll be do-able.

I've put you in the OP. I think that's perfectly manageable! Yes, you're capable of achieving this. You could even go through the unit twice or more in that time, in my opinion. Let us know once you've finished revising for it so I can tick your name off in the OP for that unit.

Thanks, I've added you into the OP. Let us know once you've finished revising for it so I can tick your name off.

I don't do History but I personally think it's only possible if you dedicate all your time from now until the exam to it bc from what I've heard there's so much content to learn and the essays are really hard to write as they apparently require a lot of practice. Good luck!

If structuring your 20 mark answers is an issue (for Edexcel), I could send you some of my full-mark essays? They're on the Soviet Union, though.
