    This next week I have four exams in four days, including my hardest (Chemistry). I told my parents weeks ago that I wanted to spend this weekend revising, so they said they'd go out so I could have the house to myself.
    Instead, they invited half of my family over to have lunch, and spent the entire day speaking so loudly I could hear them through ear plugs and noise cancelling headphones. This meant I got no work done.
    When I spoke to them about it, I got told I was selfish.

    Is there anything I can do now?

    My "local" library is over two hours walk away and there are no regular buses:mad:, plus it's hardly ever open.

    I'm doing WJEC, so it's tuesday for me, and having 4 exams in a row I need to revise all four at the same time, so that was why I was counting on today.
    I don't think I'd be able to concentrate on more than one subject at a time.

    Sorry if I sound like I'm shutting down every idea, I'm just completely lost here.

    I would try to work outside but it's been pouring down for the last week.

    You could go to your local library, or even a park depending on the weather.

    Okay, sorry i didn't appreciate that. The main thing is don't panic, don't stay up all night revising and get a good night sleep. I know its not preferable, but spend this evening doing it, close you door and i know the sounds are distracting but something is far better than nothing
