Revision - Hows it Going?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hows everyone's revision going? Mine's going ok, going through alot of past papers and the answer's seem too abvious for A2 or maybe it's just that i know the subject well enough.

ICT - One section is nailed i feel as though i should be getting a good grade on it the other section is more difficult (technical side) i should however be able to get a reasonable grade after more revision on it. Need good grades because my coursework was poor.

Busines Studies - My star subject (thank god ive got one - allows extra time on other two). Know all there is just need to work on how i answer the question.

Sport Studies - I know more or less one section the other however is quite difficult, this is the only subject im worrid about because the dificult paper takes up more UMS points so could drop my whole grade.

    3 written exams are over with. They went crap. So won't bother.
    Have had 2 oral exams so far, which mean I have two more to go.
    And I am really stressed. I have more than a week, for one of them but I need to revise from scratch and it's going to slow. Then 5 days after that I have my last exam which I don't think I will be able to revise for with such a short time. I will do my best though - of course.

    But yeah, generally I am completely fucked.

    Doing my GCSEs at the mo, done 3 still 10 more to do, revision could be going better but i'm panicking so much about failing that the work doesn't seem to be soaking up in my brain, it doesn't help that my brother is a selfish *beep* and refuses to turn his music down grrrr

    I'm doing my AS levels at the moment. I've had all but one of the exams..last one is on the 6th. Can't wait til they are over, although am dreading results day. Psychology went pretty badly IMO, but the others were ok-ish (I hope.)

    I'm doing my Highers right now. I've had a bit of a problem studying. My exams are going well though. The only one I'm worried about is Maths. I think I mioght have done badly on that but all the rest have went very well. I'm looking forward to Business Studies. It's my best subject and I feel on top form for it :D

    am doing my A2's currently, haven't done one bit

    Irish-finished it already, i'm fluent in it so not really a bother

    English Lit-as long as i learn a few quotes from a few plays, a few critics and look up a bit of history on drama post 1945 i'l be grand as it's an easy subject to blag your way through, "metaphor this, simile that" you know the craic yourself

    History-this is the one that i'm worrying about, i'm alright with the subject just need to learn the facts, gonna start sometime soon, maybe a week or so.

    i'm very lazy btw...
