    What do you hope to get when you open your results in the summer. For me my hopes are A/A*, however this can change because of how much revision i thought i would be able to do. Also it would be appreciated if you could give exam tips and last minute reminders and also how to reduce exam stress.
    Thanks

    also in exams USE ALL YOUR TIME. trust me u don't know how many dumb mistakes can be made. sleep well so you have good concentration and memory drink water & pee before your exam. reduce stress: try to have quiet time every night before bed to clear your mind (baths/showers are good too) x

    Thanks you so much and have you done your gcse's? Mine starts tommorow and i feel like i have revised the content but i do not know what might come up so i think i am over-revising or under-revising if that makes sense. Also there are times in the exams where i know the answer but over complicate it because the wording of the question confuses me. Any ideas why?

    how much have you revised and do you think you will get those grades?. I stress too much over little things like for example entering an exam unprepared when im prepared.

    i havent done my gcses but we've had mocks & sooo many exams. my first is on tuesday. well, tbh its always better to over-revise. make sure u look at the specifications they will tell you what you need to know. have you done any past papers? if not, you should, as many of them give u an idea of what exactly the examiners are looking for. usually your brain interprets the question in different ways. when you look at a question underline the KEY THINGS they are asking you for. if its a long question try to plan it in the corner of the page. and don't try to complicate things: just see what its trying to get u to do, and try to answer it. make suure to read it carefully though (thats why you should underline key parts) e.g. explain how a stack is formed.
    underline EXPLAIN, STACK and FORMED

    i also have an exam on tuesday and i also have done so many paper questions. It is just the thought of doing well vs the thought of not. I always realise in the end when i have finished a mock exam that i knew the answer but the exam stressed me. i really want to do well and i think i just got to believe in my self
