Start exams at 9am and finish them at 5pm.. IM MAD FURIOUS and scared as **** cos imagine I might forget lots of stuff just because of the stress and pressure 😭😭😭

I have the same computer science paper on that day and them after that an M2 paper but you seem to have it a lot worse. Just try and clear your brain after each exam and try not to think about the exams you have already completed. Good luck!

Sorry, just to confirm this is A level?

The threshold for special consideration compensation is 6hrs for A level and 5.5hrs for GCSE. Looks like you fall just short.

My tips.

Make sure you have had breakfast and have a snack to eat. Flapjack or similar.
They might allow you a small break supervised between the exams. If they allow you access to your notes then have a set that are no more than 1 page long.
Keep flexing your hand.

tbh its quite common for people to do 2 x 3hr exams and if its essay writing then it can really cramp your hand.

Nope the exam center have to maintain the security and integrity of the exam, so it isnt compromised.

Just eat 20 mins- have a pace round 10 mins for circulation, maybe have some caffeine if you are sleepy and do 20 mins revision.

Quite nervous actually, I feel like there is so much content to learn and I'm worried a question will come up in the programming exam that I will get stuck on/have no idea how to do it. over the next week I'm going to try and do alot of practice on skeleton code and theory revision.

I was thinking of going over the notes I made on my exercise book and in total there’s 4 of them but then I realised that revision isn’t effective at all so I’ve decided to only revise from past papers. I printed every papers available on the AQA website + few previous past papers from old spec. You should do that too given the content is too much and practising helps you identify the types of question that’ll be asked.

I looked at the 2017 programming question and I have zero idea how to code it :/

Yes I think that's a good idea to focus on past paper questions. I might focus on that more as well. For help with the programming exam this video may help : https://youtu.be/AuDXLOG370c
I believe he will be doing more programming videos over the next week.

I know someone who had 3 exams on a single day and they basically had to stay in until after 9:30 at night. In the afternoon they had a exam that was 2hr and 30 mins...

I have three on Monday, one of each of my subject. I think it ridiculous that you are considered for special consideration if your exams are under 6 hour or 6 hours, mine is literally half an hour under which makes no difference, the pressure is still the exact same !! i am so angry !!
