Struggling with revision/exams? AMA- I got all 9s at GCSE and A*A*A* AlevelWatch this thread
Hi everyone, exams season can be stressful but I am looking to help as best as I can as I know how much a little help can do for someone. About me - I am an ex Warwick Law student who dropped out after 2 terms and reapplied subsequently receiving an offer to study BSc Economics (L100) at warwick. I achieved al 9s at GCSE and A*A*A* at alevel, if you have any questions about exams, law, economics, or life at warwick/ucas admissions as a whole, feel free to message me or reply to this. Hope to help however I can!
How did u cope w exam stress?? And lack of motivation?? I’m stressed and overthinking which makes me stop working as I start thinking about life
Hi, I have just one month until a levels start and would like to achieve A*A*A* in maths bio and chem, my expectation of myself puts me under a bit of pressure. What tips would you have to comfortably do this
I cannot put into words just how useful gym was and is to me as an outlet. I am a strong advocate for physical exercise, I myself use the gym intensely as a regular weightlifter training for strength, however, for exam stress even "low level" gym is still useful. I would recommend picking up cardio, such as bikes or running, or more favorably some weight/callisthenic movements!! Aside from gym, regular walks with friends helped me too. I have a dog and friends who live near by so we would go out daily for walks with him and these were a good chance to destress and unwind. Aside from gym/exercise/walking, pick up a TV show! I finished white collar and prison break during GCSEs and then Power, Bodyguard, Top Boy, and youtube series during A-levels.
Honestly, lack of motivation for me was also a struggle which is why most of my revision were in the last few weeks before exams. But to keep myself ticking over in the longer run-up, I just kept thinking about where i want to be in life, who i want to be, and how i can get there. I kept telling myself if i want to be earning 60k at 23 as an IB or corporate lawyer, sitting around doing nothing and failing Alevels wont get me there!
