    So I notice that with this year's exam time table I have a few times where 2 A-level exams fall on the same day.

    On the...
    20th June: Biology paper 2 and Maths C3
    26th June: Biology paper 3 and Maths S2

    Between those two dates I also have Maths C4!!

    How does one manage or cope with the workload around this kind of timetable? :/

    You have a long time to go before these exams, so just revise consistently up to them. The main problem with having two exams on the same day is being tired and fed up of exams! The workload will be the same whether they're on the same dY or one day apart. Make sure you take something to eat and drink between them, and if the first exam goes badly try to push it out of your mind and forget about it until after the second one.

    Yeah I think it will definitely be a case of staying in the right mind-set to tackle these exams. I've just got to stay motivated I guess. But one thing I struggle with is forgetting things before the exam (possibly due to nerves), that's why I like to do a lot of revision up until I have to go into the exam room. Just seems difficult having to concentrate on a lot of content for one day
