    I've not finished content in:
    French
    German
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Physics
    Business
    RS

    And for some, especially languages, we still have a while yet to go. And my first exam is my French speaking so that's a daunting thought.
    But teachers saying like this REALLY ISN'T HELPING lmfao

    My teachers are having a laugh.

    I've practically finished English (only one poem left to cover), but I've still got quite a bit left in Maths and a tiny bit in Physics
    but absolutely LOADS left in Chemistry and Biology, which I'm going to have to teach myself. History and RS are nearly there but in music I've got 2 set works left.

    The amount of content left when the exams are so close is really worrying me - anyone else in the same boat?

    For example, in Biology, we've only just started topic 6!! In Chemistry many random lessons such as NPK Fertilisers haven't been taught and we still haven't covered half of topic 3 or all of topics 5 or 8. To this day I haven't done a titration!

    Well, this is worrying and sort of relieving (that I'm not the only one), my biology teacher was off for a few months so I'm having to teach myself Topic 4,5 and 6 and do you need any notes on anything for Chemistry?

    my biology teacher was off for a few months
    We've not had a biology teacher for this whole year, until very recently. It (weirdly) makes me feel very happy that weren't not the only school in these situations.

    I could do my french speaking on Friday if I had to. maths we finished everything in year 10. physics we have 1 and a half topics left. history should be finished for easter. chemistry should be done in 2 weeks. biology should be done for easter. geography I have no idea so I'm doing it myself..
    only finished revision notes for development of us a (history).
    hoping to have my notes for every subject finished for 1st may so I can read over them and do 1 or 2 practice papers each night

    Similar situation to most of you guys, French speaking in April yet I don't understand half the subject and how to say anything fluently, and we've got a few topics left so I doubt we'd even revise for it in class...
    History we've just started our final (fourth) book in the course (Edexcel)
    Geography we've got another topic to do, 60+ pages long...(AQA)

    It's going to be insanely challenging for me to pick up and get good scores in everything with the current situation...

    A good and effective way of preparing for Biology and Chemistry is using free question-based websites. The best ones are Seneca Learning and Quizzlet. They have all topics and specific for each exam-board.

    We've finished everything but history and chemistry, we have about 19 hours of chemistry left and we started Norman England two weeks ago; our teacher teaches all lesson then we have to make notes at home.

    Oh and then there's RE.... what a mess... we had three teachers for our Judaism section, didn't learn one thing so I've bought the official revision book and am teaching myself the content.

    To be honest, though I'm confident for my subjects history worries me. I've heard other schools are doing compulsory lunchtime classes to catch up and we're just drifting causally through the textbook however she's also signed us up to this History exam lecture thing which takes place in April and it will help us write the exams so I suppose that provides a bit more confidence.
