I have 23 days until my first exam. I've been revising but I'm still getting so much of it wrong and forgotten most of it the content I've learned. There's no time left, I've pretty much failed them. I can barely sleep at night.

23 days is a lot of time, don't panic.

Make sure you're breaking everything down into manageable chunks. Study a topic for 20-30 minutes, take a break, and then test yourself. Learn your mistakes.

Make sure you're taking regular breaks. If you try to cram everything at once you'll end up remembering nothing.

23 days is no time, especially for somebody who gets threes/fours and one grade six

That’s PLENTY of time, work smart and you can get 100% (if uni exam replace this number with 70-80%+).

Exams are such a waste of time, you spend 18+ years of your life learning something thoroughly every day for long periods of time that you will never need in your life again. Let that sink in and don’t forget about the time you’ve spent of your life, also may not guarantee a good job.

I'm not the type of person who wants to accumulate top grades, get a "good" job and sit in an office for the rest of my life. I've spent my life focused on enjoying myself rather than focusing on school, especially subjects which I know I'll forget such as Shakespeare and History. I love science and that's the only subject I'm interested in and like revising for. I just want to get into the sixth form so I can do subjects which I'm actually interested in. I don't know what I'll do after that but it doesn't matter atm. A-levels are what really matter and they only take up two years of your life.
