I am seriously starting to freak out now!! I am doing practice exams and cannot seem to remeber anything let alone analyze the information. PEV and PCR are my final 2 exams and the last thing I want to do is freak out on the day and fail them. Helllllllllllppppp!!

    Me too, and same 2 exams PEV/PCR (last 2, like you) - I STILL can't remember the fixed overhead variances properly. I'm doing another paper now and re-writing all the formulas again!

    I'm doomed!

    I would like to say stop panicking and I'm sure you will all be fine, but I have just dropped all my confidence by making the most stupid mistakes over and over again. (calculating the cost of sales and completely forgetting to add the opening or deducting the closing stock...)

    Hopefully it will all not be so bad and we will all be fine!

    Take a break, take a deep breath, get a good class of wine/ beer whatever takes your fancy and try again tomorrow?

    I've forgot the inventories all together, twice ! That's pretty basic stuff - think the nerves must be kicking in.
    Going to watch second half of the footy. 1-1 for any interested parties.

    OMG! I was planning on at least another 3 past PEV papers tonight, &4 tomorrow. Everthing's going completely to pot - what was my best subject & was just 'common sense' last December has been completely lost by spending too much time on DFS.

    I'm sorry, but to me it sounds like you really should just take a break, maybe an hour, maybe an evening and then go back to it!

    And yes, I'm aware that's easier said then done, but watch the rest of the footy if that has your fancy or go for a walk or something to get away from those books for a bit!

    I was actually pretty neutral throughtout the whole game, but I was happy to see my country level it. The England team I think thought they were gonna slaughter us.
    It was only down to a pretty good keeper on the US side that England didn't get more of their shots in.

    dont panic, you wont take info in if your brain is in a panic, just do the past papers in a quiet environment and you'll be fine.

    You can't. Mine does them in PEV too! It's like cartwheels, isn't it - spinning out of control.

    I think that's why it's important to go back and re-read the question once you've answered it.

    Then you can cross out your last answer and re-do it all over again! Fun eh?

    Who needs tippex anyway - have they banned marker pens for blocking out?

    lol i never used tippex because i thought lots of crossings out would make it look like i had tried harder. especially when you see lots of people asking for more paper and then you start wondering why you dont need it.
