    I had 2 psychology papers in a row last year and this year i have 3 politics papers in a row - no food, no breaks just boom boom boom!
    The only advice i can give for these exams is to be well prepared - during my psych paper i had a memory blank and nearly walked out but i just finished both papers in tears - i came out with a B but i consider myself lucky
    i know what you are going through because the AS/2 exam schedule is a crock, and the AS are earlier this year (im an expert! im repeating my AS year!)
    good luck with the psychology, get lots of practice papers and dont panic!! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I had many three-hour examinations for my 'A' Levels. Yes, it was long, but assuming you have revised, you should have plenty to say in the time and so wouldn't get hungry.

    get used to it, frankly. at uni, almost all of my exams are 3 hours long - u'll think that 1.5 hours is a bit of a slacker in a year or so! <IMG SRC="tongue.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    There isn't time to breathe, let alone eat in any psychology exam! They're crazy. I had 5 AS exams in one day last year which was about 7 hours with one break. I got through it (just about) so you'll be alright. <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    In one of my English A Level 3 hour papers, I went to the loo and the invigilator waled me there, he was really cute and was talking to me, asking how it was going.

    You can take sweets in with you (as long as you don't bring a whole bag of Woolies selection!) and a bottle of water. Just relax and split up your time per question. That way you can think of it as 3 1 hour exams, you just get them over with all in one go!
