I'm not really sure. On one hand i don;t like the idea because it adds more pressure cause you only get one chance to do well, but then again you get longer to study your subjects so you should really know them inside out. 

I'm kinda in the middle at the moment.

i don't like all these changes, too many changes at once is never a good thing and they have been making too many changes to gcses and a levels recently. they seem to think they are too easy, but they don't realise how much work we put in.

agreed. they always underestimate us!

they should try working this hard every day for one exam, it is tiring and takes over our lives

yeah it does - i have not had a proper holiday in so long cause i've always been revising and working.

yeah, ever since september i have been revising, and last summer holidays were the best cause it felt like revision and exams didn't exist

I actually like this. I think this will help seperate the higher tier of learners from the other tiers. To do well on exams at the end of two years requires time management skills and other abilities which universities really like. It will also make it easier for Oxbridge to identify the top students.

its bad you know... but im sure it wont effect/affect people in current a level courses only the next coming year groups... lets just hope it dont effect/affect us because i cant do it like that its too hard and then no retakes as well so you know if you fail you do the whole 2 years again in a way if you get what im trying to say but in literature we do the exam im may so you know if we fail then we do that year again which is ashameful... they are only doing this because of too many people in this generation that want a job and a profession
