    Like a forgetful idiot I left my school bag on the bus with all my A2 geography notes. Folder, textbook, excerise books, exam papers, revision notes, the lot. Making everything I've done since September worthless and I'm doubtful TFL have found it but miracles happen.

    For those in/were in a similar position, how did you go about it? I have a replacement bag and stationary is easily replaceable too. But I'm really anxious and I don't whether my teachers will sympathise or even believe me. Geography is the subject I'm finding the most difficult (got a D at AS) and I desperately need to get my life in order.

    Any advise is appreciated.

    Have you contacted the bus company? if not I suggest doing so. Another thing is that you could print notes from online at least I could with my exam board, do you have a personal tutor that you explain your situation too?.

    Oh no! Definitely get on the phone to the bus company if you haven't already. If it can't be found, try and reolace your textbook and ask your friends if you could maybe get copies of their notes? I know it's not as good as having your own, but it's something. When you're revising you could always weite them up in your own way if that helps stuff sink in for you

    If you've kept the bus ticket with a particular bus ID, you can go to the bus company and ask them if your bag's in that bus or if they have it in their station. I've had a similar experience like this when I lost my phone in a Stagecoach bus.

    I'd let your teacher know ASAP so they're aware of the situation and can make any necessary allowances.
