12 hours of revision I’ve done today. Then I go and look at a sample paper on just the topics I’ve done today and I still can’t answer half of it. I think my brain wants to explode. 14 months ago

my computer died. As I need it for revision and have absolutely no money, the only way I could get a new one was to purchase it through the catalogue, where it is hugely overpriced and the interest costs more than the actual computer. As I had little choice I sucked it up and ordered it. I installed Word and everything else. Then last night, a little over a week after receiving said ridiculously overpriced computer, the bloody thing flakes out on me and refuses to connect to anything, just going round and round and round… So it said redo (can’t remember proper word) computer and we’ll save all your files. Only it didn’t and now I’ve lost Word (amongst other things!) which I need for looking at the college revision stuff.
I AM A BIT CROSS! 14 months ago
fed up. Now that I know for definite that I cannot afford to continue with my studies it feels pointless even taking the exams for the courses I did this year. 14 months ago
So bloody much to learn! If only I’d started revising 2 months ago when I planned to. 14 months ago
How I did it: I spent time in lessons and at home going through my mock exam papers to see where I needed to improve. These were the topics I would focus on for my revision. I talked to my teachers for help with questions I had more difficulty with. They gave me advice on how to improve my answers. I then went to my local library at the weekend to work on my revision. The atmosphere and environment was perfect for getting work done and I found I could concentrate better than when I revised at home. I read through my exercise books and textbooks and made concise notes on the main points. Writing things down helped me remember everything. I could then read these notes later to remind me of what I had done. I also downloaded podcasts online, most of which were from the BBC bitesize website. These helped make sure I remembered some of the more important points for my exams. Shortly before the exams, my friends and I tested each other by asking each other questions that we had been told could come up on the exam. We could correct each other and expand on each other's points, so we learned a few extra details that could help us get a few more marks. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
