I have to leave home at 8 and my exam is at 9 and I have done no revision. For my last exam I wrote a bunch of sentences concerning my life goals and further decisions all over the paper. I want to sleep but I'm not sure that is allowed and I don't want to be rudely embarrassedly woken up. What else can I do for an hour and a half??

Attempt to answer the paper the best you can with the knowledge you have already. You may even surprise yourself and do fairly well. There's no harm in trying. Best wishes!

Just attempt the paper the best you can. Answer every question, don't leave any blanks. You may get some marks. Good luck! ☺️

ugh, I can relate to this with my last exam.

Anyway, you could just do last minute check the mark scheme or just cram in a bunch of information.

Hopefully you fail, and this thread will remain as a warning to lazy students who don't revise.

If you get a decent mark it will be a shocking indictment of this exam.

I have done no revision.
If it's a GCSE, not so bad. You can probably answer from your own knowledge in some cases.
If it's A-level however...
lol glhf.

So did I! If it's a more important/ difficult exam you should try and revise a topic you find hardest/ make a pneumonic

just cram you revision so don't write notes or do flashcards mindmaps so read over notes for the exam like your previous notes or things you need to know really .blurt them out- say it out loud and you will memories it that way

apparently if you have chewing gum in your mouth and say the content out loud and when it comes to them exam you know everything in you mind idk id this is true got it from tiktok lol?
