Im sure most people now have exams on here, and I've been revising but nothing is going in. I've been reading my books, making notes and I find it just near impossible to remember it, no matter how much I go over it. I've cracked under pressure and now I think I'll fail. Help me, any tips? Please?

Study for 3 hours before bed the day before the exam. Go over the information until you can understand it. Go to bed. Wake up. Revisit the material for no more than 30 minutes and take the exam.

Oh exams.

Here in the Netherlands because the west of the country doesn't study a lot they always give free points to people who actually failed the exams. Sometimes there are nerds for example on maths with a 10,7 or a 10,6 while the highest score you can get is a 10.

My tips is don't revise everything at once, just do a few pages a day and just every day 10 minutes would be enough actually.

Imho exams are awesome, because having the thrill in the end of the school year makes me excited actually, instead of nervous.

Just calm down and relax. If you have been studying all the year, there's no problem. Don't go and read the whole curriculum at once. Believe in yourself. If you believe you can pass the exams and want to pass them, you'll do it. Here we are sitting exams too but almost in 1 week from now. Here we are sitting exams on more difficult subjects than yours like Anciend Greek. It's a pain in the ass, but there's no other way to graduate from Jr. High School and go to High School.

Thank you but it all went all so fast and I never realised this day will be so close, I remember last year and teachers were stressing about exams and I was thinking "Whatever, thats far away." I really regret being in that state of mind and also GOOD LUCK!!

Ah ye olde GCSE days. (I take it you're doing your gcses)

Just revise bits of the module's topics a bit a day. You should get some index cards. Practice with past exam papers. The key to a high grade is practice and practice with different types of past exam papers (Unless those shitty exam boards change everything per usual)
or sample papers teachers tend to provide. Make up your own questions, seriously it's very effective.

However it's up to you how you keep motivated because that's each to their own.

BTW: Nice user name!

Really?! Haha! It must be very difficult my friend. I don't know if you learn New Greek, but for you Ancient Greek must be 10x difficult than for me who I am Greek. Greek is one of the miost difficult languages than can be learned.

It is quite difficult I have to admit... I don't learn Modern Greek no, but I've taken a look at it and read some before, but the pronounciation is TOTALLY different O_O lol I got used to it in the end, the reason I took it in the first place is because I'm doing Latin as well =] yet I only had 2 years for Greek to learn the same amount of stuff I had 4 years to learn for Latin T_T oh well haha
