Oh boy it’s that time of year for all year 6s, year 11s and sixth forms and unnecessary exams for the other years need to do exams. Never really got the idea for years 7,8,9 to do exams when year 10s don’t unless they do but I don’t remember them. I did tend school honestly it’s been about 11/12years who I left now so it’s just a blur to me.
However if your school has summoned you to do Easter courses revision classes over the holidays I know not ideal as it’s your holidays but you’re first exam may just be around the corner sooner than you expected. I hated going back into school to do Easter sessions classes when I was on a school holiday my time not school time; to be honest they really weren’t that useful to be honest in my opinion, I know when I get into the exam I’ll forget everything anyway and there’s a good reason for that I panic when it comes to exams especially maths. Not even sure why or how you can revise for that subject to be honest never understood that one. If someone could explain that one to me that would be grand. Thanks.
You have really good parents who pull out all of the stops to help you revise to the fact that they crack a tooth in the process; believe me when one of my parents helped me and my two brothers at the time we were doing ours they cracked a tooth because it was that stressful, to be honest me and my parent would argue because I was stressed and I would say stupid things like “I wish I was home schooled” etc that was because I was annoyed that everything wouldn’t stick into my head or I would give up because there was so much reading involved nothing stay. If you remember me saying the other day about being dyslexic and language difficulties; that played a huge part in my exams because there was a lot of words, and questions that I wouldn’t understand but couldn’t ask my reader to explain to me what it meant. Even if I had extra time.
Loved the extra time where I could take my time on each exam question. Those were the days to the fact that I had the advantage to get the paper done. Still didn’t help my nerves though. If you have learning difficulties and have extra time use it as your advantage and use the quiet space that you’re given to do take your time.
I have to say is study hard and you’ll achieve great things whether you’re a practical person or not you be alright. Good luck everyone in the UK.
