I am having major coursework issues. I can definately see what this guy means! GCSEs are hard to get through and I one of those kids who just like Josh cannot manage their time. I can really relate to what he is saying. There is too much pressure put on us in our GCSE years.

You refer to "students", when "school-children" would be a more accurate description of these utterly self-obsessed adolescents. Very few of these intellectually-impoverished and emotionally-brittle prima donnas could have survived the competitive examination environment of the 60's - I know, I'm a veteran of those times and a parent of three of these latter-day divas. Just a thought. Philip

I'm about to do my GCSE's and I totally disagree with Josh. You shouldnt just sit in your room and do it. Find a stimulating and enjoyable way of revising so that it really sticks in your mind. Sitting in your bedroom wont help at all. All will happen is that you will get distracted and get depressed at how much work you have to do. Unless of course you prefer sitting in your room when revising.

What a cool, insightful and blinkin' honest vid. It's so true - I think teacher's should give all year 11 students a GCSE induction course complete with time management and motivation skills - it would help a lot! I'm going through the same probs!

I totally relate to Josh- he is voicing the opinions of every teenager around the country about to take GCSEs and A Levels- a great video!

IT WAS VERY GOOD

i thought the vidao was empersing the fact that in todays world we do have problems manging our time, and that parents and teachers should lay off giving us a hard time about it all. we are stressed enough due to exams, we dont need even more pressure to revise! and feel that we cant cope! they should help us, just not ram it down our throats 24/7

i think its a good video as it explains all the stress and how to cope with it!! I have my KS3s SATs in one week and i have been revising slowly and a little by little! Parents complain guys...its what they do...but do what suits you! and well revising way ahead of your exams will help, which is shown in this video. put your head down and work your butt off!! it all pays of in the end!! xxx

Rachel
I agree that its hard to do coursework, but i always find revision loads harder, and there seems to be litte support from school in this area, i think we should be taught how to revise properly and how to manage our time, because theres no point spending two years being taught the stuff if we dont know how to learn it properly when it comes down to it.
