Hey, got any tips for revising in these last few weeks? I can't believe there are only three weeks left! What do you think I should go over and how should I do it? When you took the test did you have some kind of schedule where you did one thing on a day and then something else after?
sorry if I'm asking a lot of questions

HAHHAHAHAHA THREE WEEKS LEFT MY BROTHERS GONNA DIE. anyways go over what you have already been revising and find some practice exams or tests online on a specific topic, regardless of where the test is from. I didn't really have a schedule i tried to cover as much as possible during a set time but you should focus on maybe two or three topics a day and then do the rest of them another. ive some friends who in fct took a week off of school to study for the exam. in fact, that was everyone trying out except for me (i had to have good attendance to keep my scholarship). if you think thatll help, talk to your parents and go for it. otherwise you dont HAVE to

do what you want but look at your situation. for example:

1. do you have a scholarship or academics at risk? my issue was is that i had a scholarship at risk if i took a few days off to study
2. will you actually do work if you do take those days off? so many people i know took days off but apparently couldn't work for half the day.

good luck to all of you and i wish you the best. if you do not get in, you can make and find your own way no matter what <3

my thing is is that on the day of the exam, i didnt care about getting in or not because i did so many practice exams just like the actual exam. one way i like to not panic tho, is to think of my happy place (what id like to do youkno) and control my breathing. i sometimes have panic attacks and this does help me but you will only be scared before your first exam, after everyone just calms down.

Yeah, that is true. I am just very desperate to get into schs and I get really nervous just thinking about what would happen if I didn't get in :((
But, anyways, good luck to everyone and I am sure you all will do amazing and get into the school you want to :))
