    I have the exact problem....its like it goes through one ear and goes out the other...i have just got my results for my first exam and i got a D....it was a biology exam and i was put on foundation..i tried to get on higher but my teacher didn't do it...
    Firstly there is nothing wrong with u...loads of teens go through this and we just have to beat it...Heres some advice i got from some friends who got A stars and funnily enough they all said the same thing....
    I would say is to revise from a text book...read through it and take notes and highlight key words.....then go on bbc bitesize on read through it... apprantely doing this helps....oh yeah and make sure u start revising way before your exam doing it all last minute is horrible!!!
    maybe try and form a study group with your friends and try and get all the smart people involved to help you!!!
    with your parentsd try and not let it get to you...what i say is... you can only try your best and thats all you can do and maybe u should say to your parents that u feel that they r putting too much pressure on you and to try and ease back a little...good luck.x

    Hi!
    The main thing when dealing with exams is to keep calm. Last year I had my three science exams in the space of a week and a stats exam 10 days later!

    Keep up with your revision and don't leave things until the last minute. If you feel confident avout your revision, you are less likely to get stressed.

    As for trying to get good results, find the method of revision that works best for you. Some people learn by listening to things, using mind maps, doing past papers or writing things out.

    Good luck Millie! smiley - smiley
