    tired.
    Was confused as to why but then i realised ive had about 7 hours in 2 nights which isn't that horrendous but im getting a bit exhausted now after so much work
    maybe that's why im having bad chest pains, feel like im being squeezed
    but idc cos i haven't ever felt this comfortable within myself and no melatonin or school stress will subdue this feeling :cute:
    Aww Cavy, I hope you feel better soon xxx :hugs:

    Feeling so so tired & stressed. My exams are in under 2 weeks. I'm getting heart burn 😩 Eating habits have become ridiculous. My mood swings are stronger. I just can't wait to finish my AS. If these are my AS' I can't even imagine how my A2 are gonna be like. 😞😞

    Nah you should be fine; IIRC you mentioned that you did alright in your exams so far? 70% is really not that much, and remember you got 86% last year. Even if you don't do well this year, you could still just put a lot of effort from the start of next year in order to guarantee reasonably high marks in a year that (I think) matters more.
    I mean, nothing's holding you back there apart from not deciding to work hard.

    Meanwhile I'm screwed in terms of getting a respectable mark. A first, sure, but 70% in first year is a joke. I got 75% in maths by computer (I got 0 in the last 10% assignment Q lol), failed some pretty weighty assignments in prob A and discrete maths and I left my self-study/revision way too late. I've yet to do a single maths question in my revision, only managing to start papers now.

    Yeah except Algebra I. In which I answered most hard proofs that actually tested understanding but totally screwed up overall because I couldn't calculate a 4*4 determinant. Probs looking at <60. But the thing is that the term 2 modules are far harder, and I am at the mo trying to learn them rather than revise them really. And they are in like a month. I am sure you will be okay given your Jan exams.

    By the way I think I got exactly 75 in MbC with a 0 in the last exercise as well.

    I can guarantee that you got more than 60. If you're anything like me (which I suspect you are) you probably just inflated your mistakes because they were particularly bad, like me with Foundations. Even if not, there should be a fair amount of scaling.

    I'm spending less time preparing for 9 exams than I spent for those two exams. Plus those two modules/exams were really straightforward, and I still messed up badly in places.
    Lol what a coincidence. I know a guy who straight up just didn't bother to partake in MbC. I considered that, but then I realised that I probably wouldn't even get a first, not because of the mark setback but because I'd have little hope of getting even a decent 80+ score, so I wouldn't even have the little motivation I have now.

    One 11 marker I will be lucky to get 4 on; otherwise I left out entirely two 5 markers and a 3 marker, missed out part of the definition for an abelian group, manically rushed a 6 marker at the end, wrote down and found the SNF of a different matrix to the one actually given in a 5 mark question and scrawled out basically illegible stuff even when I was actually doing things correctly. I think around 70 is my absolute most optimistic hope minus scaling.

    Fair enough but personally I found the Summer exams nicer than Analysis Foundations. I am not sure that much time is needed. This was the case with the first half of my exams this year also. But now Metric Spaces and Differentiation and Algebra are going to kill me.

    Yeah never a good idea to just skip a core module lol.

    How can you miss part of the def for an abelian group, I thought there was only one 'part' to it lol?
    Eh, that's kinda bad (70 minus scaling is great for a 'messed up' exam though), but nothing compared to how badly I'll do in discrete maths. Thank god they've just sent out emails for revision lectures, definitely have to go to those.
    That's just one module I would say. And you're goal now is just to get a first right, or are you trying to do better than that?

    Maybe I'm learning a tonne of stuff that I really don't need to. But it does take a lot of time for me. Remember I'm a lot worse at maths than it seems. You seem to have a fair amount of talent so you managed to do really well with little revision, but I take ages to properly revise a module. The stuff just doesn't intuitively 'click' until I've read it like 50 times over. Once it does I'm generally ok though.
