Well guys.
Modular GCSE exams have started, and this years A Level exams start tomorrow.

I have a Maths C1 exam at 9:30am. I haven't got a clue what to do, everything I know has just gone out of the window. Can anybody else doing this course help me out?

Good luck for all your exams guys.

I was okay with C1, up until a couple of weeks ago. Every tiny piece of knowledge has just vanished. My notes mean nothing to me any more. I just don't get anything

Yeah I have C1 tomorrow. Been working my arse off on it for the last couple weeks, done all the past papers I can find + the solomon papers, getting about 90% average. So feeling pretty confident I won't **** up like last year.

C1 isn't too much of a challenge. Which exam board are you on?

Also, try looking at someone elses notes. Sometimes works for me

I have that too, only advice is, work through a past paper, if there's stuff you don't know, go to the textbook (I'm doing MEI, and their textbook is amazing) Learn it, do the questions and move on, I'm cracking these papers with 1 question or so wrong each time.

Most courses are split into 2 or 3 parts. It just means you have fewer exams in the summer and don't have to remember as much all at once

Law AS on Thursday, been revising my arse off to make sure I'm not part of the 25% who inevitably fail. Oh, and a Maths AS two weeks later that I haven't started on, but that's maths so it shouldn't be a problem.

Edexcel C1 Maths tomorrow morning and Physics on Wednesday. Maths should go well, Physics on the other hand...

C1 at nine tomorrow. Physics on wednesday and psych next week.

Not too worried at the moment, I'll probably start freaking out tomorrow morning though.

Use the quadratic formula.

x = (-b +/- sqrt(b^2-4ac)) /2a

So who else, other than Katherine, has a Philosophy exam on Tuesday?


I'm doing Philosophy but I don't have mine until the end of the year. Which part of the course is your exam on?
