FCE (First Certificate): So and Such

So, what's the difference between so and such?

We use with adjectives (e.g. tired, dangerous ...).
We use with adjective + noun (e.g.bad weather, big tree).
We use with "many + countable noun" (e.g. many trees).
We use with "much + uncountable noun" (e.g. much time).

Now try these sentences - type in the word 'so' or 'such'.

I've studied much grammar that I'm exhausted.
My sister is good at English - she should be a teacher.
I've been waiting for a long time.
I watched a lot of TV last night.
I watched much TV last night.
I'm hungry, I could eat a horse.
I have many ideas, I don't know where to begin.
Ask Tom for help - he gave me good advice last time I asked him.
