I'm beginning to stress about my chemistry and maths papers but that's just because i know i haven't done nearly as much for them as i should have! had biology today and it was fine, also had my maths repeat which i loved to pieces....i'd do it all again if i could...how sad is that?
I am stressed. I can't concentrate and haven't done any revision so am trying to learn a whole psychology and Politics module in one night.
Of course, that is all my fault.
Yep, pretty stressed over here. I only have two modules to take in Jan but aaaaaah. Not prepared at all.
Think this is going to be a late, loooooong night!
I'm stressed!! Just had Maths today, got Politics tomorrow (and the bloody AQA website is down). Then next week on Wednesday I've got English Lit, and Thursday I have Economics.
Not looking forward to any of the exams, I'm getting quite nervous that I may not get good grades, and I really don't want to do retakes.
Yeah a little stress is good, but I'm the sort of person that doesn't stress at all, does **** all all year. Then as the exam weeks begin to close in I subconsciously start to stress. (my eczma flares up and stuff) but becasue it is all subconscious I still don't revise as I'm not consciously stressed to be motivated.
Then two days before the exams it hits me ( and i usually have like 3 in two days so it's farrr too late). I get major headaches, am on the verge of tears and have to stay up all night LITERALLY drinking red bull, continuing to drink it the next day to get me through my exams.
Its not good for me. I probably am on the verge of a nervous breakdown. All i've done is scream at my mom in the past 36 hrs lol. (She understands though) The red bulls not good fro me. My eczma is a pain and my headaches are just as bad. I probably have high blood pressure but that seems to be just the way I approach exams these days, has been for a while now.
Anyone know how I could break out of these harmful habits?
Aaaaaaarh exam rant coming your way.
So everything was going okay. I've carried on with 5 subjects because I felt like I could manage physchology as an extra quite easily. We did mocks before Christmas, which I didn't have time to revise for, and I got AAABC, so thought I could get 4 As (I got the B in physchology - got an A for one topic and a C for the other as I hadn't revised the model the essay question was on) and then anything in history, as I know it's likely I'll have to retake it.
My exams are at a bad time because I was busy a lot over Christmas, but had 2 today, have 1 tommorow, 1 on Monday, 1 on Wednesday... and NO study leave.
I revise my arse off for psychology. I've made SO many notes and booklets and revision maps and diagrams and pictures and postits and flashcards and flashing dancing headings. And I go into the exam and do the wrong combination of questions and misread 'psychological' as 'physical' in another, meaning I've automatically lost 12/60 marks. And on the two essay questions I finished in bullet points of not at all because I was being too slow.
So bascially I've completly cocked it up and will definately have to retake and can't get more than a C. I don't think I can manage doing five AS's worth of exams plus multiple retakes in the summer, and now I'm wishing I'd dropped physchology a few weeks/months ago...
I'm so faustrated and disapointed and annoyed with myself. I knew all of the content, I just answered the wrong quetsions. And I'm SO SO fed up and bored with all the content but now I'm going to have to learn it all, all over again, in the summer. Yet I know it all inside out at the moment... I just let myself down in a moment of complete stupidity.
I don't so much stress about not having done enough preparation - I've usually revised quite intensively for a particular exam, although I do still occasionally wonder whether there are gaps in my knowledge - but I stress more about going to the exam and seeing that it's a weird question that I don't really know how to answer. That really scares me.
I spent today writing up 11 sides of A4 consisting of studies and experiments for AQA Psychology PYA4.. Not quite sure how I'm going to remember it all, and its not even ALL of the studies included in the paper.
