    yup

    Very much so. I am getting nowhere fast as weekends keep getting taken over by family issues so am now booking time off work to get a few practice papers in.

    Surely a 21 year old shouldn't be holding things together for everyone else so much whilst working full time and doing the houseowrk and traying to maintain some sanity for the husband's sake. o well three papers for me

    Pretty much the same issue here.

    My boyfriend is not helping things at the moment, because when I tell him I don't have time to go spent a Saturday doing other things, because the exam is near, he thinks I'm just getting stressed and should take a break for a week from studying.

    I am getting slightly worried about it, as there is so much I still need to learn for DFS, and lately everyone seems to think I should take a break so that they can visit/ we can visit them and my boyfriend is just happily inviting everyone along.

    I planned one day of for study so far from work, but want to plan at least one more, to give me some time to study when there is noone home, but even though I gave my boyfriend the hint that I wanted the day off to study, he did think it was a good time to take the day off to study as well. But his studying seems to exist of playing computer games for 2 hours and reading a few lines of study in between, while finding all kinds of distracting things that he needs to tell me about. And then he is surprised I said I wanted the day off and alone.

    Anyways, rant over. I still love my boyfriend, I just wish he understood a bit more that sometimes I need some peace and quiet time to study.

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one getting nervous!
    I'm doing PTC and BTC. I've got on with them ok, but how I'm going to make that much stay in my head i just don't know. I'm at that point when just as i think i've got it - i get it wrong!!

    My daughter's doing her GCSE's now as well so you can imagine the stress levels in my house!!!

    But at least my boss is away for the 3 weeks before the exams so i am going to have a study afternoon each day at work. I'm hoping that will help.

    Stressed Too

    I am also finding it hard to find the time to study, I am half way through the Key Techniques, I know I need to focus also on the ratios as this is a weak area for me, going on hols in early june but taking the books with me (such fun) good luck to all of you.

    Keep hammering those exam standard questions over the next four weeks and I will guarantee you will all be ready for the exams then be able to chill out for Summer (and the World Cup!!!!)

    Keep going - nearly there!!!

    I'll post up some DFS revision tips when I have done Saturday's lecture.

    Kind regards
