    That's rather pointless. The degree level content, I mean. My teacher will go into A2 content with me - I'm currently doing AS - but that is only because I'm quite capable and sometimes, like with equilibria, it is worthwhile for him to teach me the AS content and then build upon it with the A2 content straight away.

    For my January exam I completed all the relevant past papers and so my teacher did give me older papers to attempt, but only the questions that were still on the new syllabus. Different formats and so on to test my ability to decipher what I was being asked when it was put differently.

    You have every right to ask if you don't understand something straight away, as that is what they're there to do - assist and facilitate in your learning. You shouldn't be having to spend money on a tutor and be using up more of your time because they are approaching teaching in entirely the wrong way.
    oh, thats cool, like for january exams at AS he gave us one past paper and we did that and he gave us that for our mock so we couldnt really test ourselves..i decided to get myself some past papers and go through them lol

    Even this year we were supposed to do a mock for chem 4 and he gave us a past paper and he goes you might want to look through it properly so we did and when we did the mock it was exactly the same LOL kinda funneh

    I think the exams this year were kinda hard ugh!! i just hope i dont have to resit. As for the tutor, it reinforces my learning so i guess its not really wasting money, i was on U's and now im being predicted C-D's (: and the good thing is i actually came from BTEC science at GCSE and i remember at AS i didnt even know how to work out molecular masses whilst everyone else did as they were from GCSE..but ive worked hard and done it!

    Seriously? Complaining about business studies? It's purely common sense and simple. Easiest A-level out there
    Do you do business studies? if not then you clearly have no understanding of it. Love to see you get A* in every business paper with that attitude, :rolleyes: kids these days.

    All exam boards will update their grade boundaries the day before results, so you can get hold of the relevant information on the 7th of March.
    Thanks

    Not worried at all here! Already know that I pretty much got high As in my modules. Expecting 100 or very close to 100 in the maths modules, chemistry would be surprised if I got below 90%.

    I "kind of" got an early result today for my chemistry ISA, which was promising. (I say kind of as I know ISA results arent given out on results day anyway and is different for each school/it still has to be moderated and all that jazz).

    March 8th just needs to get here quicker!
