    Just keep doing past papers and memorising notes until the evening before each exam, then take a couple of hours to unwind (movies, couple of beers) and get as much sleep as you can the night before. I've found a good 8 hours before a paper is worth at least a couple of day's cramming in terms of exam marks.
    Good luck!

    I have learnt that you can learn a chemistry module and bang an A in a paper in two days. Which annoys me really as I have spent TWO WHOLE YEARS bored out of my mind apparently learning chemistry.

    I've got another 4 exams to go, 3 chemistry and a physics. Luckily the worst is done, had just under 6 hours of exams yesterday. 2x90mins of maths in the afternoon, and had a 90+75 of physics in the morning.
    Would have through AQA would have realised most people taking physics take maths aswell and spread them out a bit more.
    Of the 12 exams II have they're all on mondays and thursdays :rolleyes:

    :) true but theres a big difference in being able to memorise facts etc and re-write them in an exam situation. Its when you get into the real world and have the apply it to various situations that the two years worth of experience kicks in.

    Lucky bugger, I never managed it :( Spent weeks revising but only got a B at A-level. A few marks off being a 'straight-A' student! But life goes on!

    Count yourself better than me, apparently I was a straight A student but doing subjects that I hate/just a-levels being boring in general bar one will probably see me lucky getting CCB overall. :p

    I have my final solicitor's exams next week... and if I fail any at all, then I may lose my two year job contract with them, as well as having to pay back a substantial sponsorship amount - now that's pressure!!!
