    I sort of do, but I tend to ignore all of the explanations and just do the exercises (book's crap) so I don't really know why what I'm doing works. Last year, I did M1, S2 and FP1, this year I'm doing FP3 and I did S3 in Jan. Which ones have you done?
    how did S1 go?
    i've got that exam next week :/

    I did it in Jan. It should be a pretty easy paper. Just go through some papers.

    Relax

    ye.
    the 2011 thread was a bit mixed so it was hard to tell AS from A2 and resit applicants because you had people that said 3 scores for AS and not 4. :/
    That's one of the reasons why I thought it best to have one specifically for A Level students (although if any AS students do want to join in, that's fine, but it'd help to make it clear what level we're talking about whether it's A2 or AS haha )

    I was one of those confusing ones last year who had three scores for AS rather than 4 because I started doing French and finished after a few weeks because it was so boring

    but i guess this thread needs you to put UCAS choices etc. so we can tell AS from A2.

    Last year the Year 12's and 13's were in the same thread. May as well join 'em up, you're all doing A Levels.

    Good point. I'm going to edit the first post so that it makes it clear that it's for AS and A2, might be easier

    AS i took chemistry, biology, psychology and maths. (and i critical thinking in year 11 as well)

    insurance is a back-up for if you dont meet the conditions for your firm choice. mine doesnt make sense cause theyre the same, but i didnt have an offer lower than AAA and my school made me pick an insurance

    Okay this makes me feel really nervous...

    Name: TheatreLovely
    AS Levels/A Levels: English Literature, French, German
    Choices: : Firm - Oxford, AAA
    Insurance - Durham, AAB

    I only have three exams (well, I've already done my orals/coursework, so...) and these are on 15th June, 19th June and 20th June - would have been nicer to have had them more spread out, but it could have been worse. It's eight weeks and one day from my last exam until results day and I'm spending all of this time in Germany, so hopefully it should go faster.

    I have the exact same gap between last exam and results day I have a feeling those eight weeks are going to drag. Then again, I have some quite exciting stuff to do - hopefully going to be doing face painting at a local RSPB site, going on holiday with family and boyfriend for my 18th, spending time with my boyfriend and doing a performing arts summer school/musical production with Russell Grant again this August. As soon as rehearsals for that start, the time will fly by and I'll be so exhausted, I won't be able to be nervous hopefully :o:o

    I already know that the night before results day will be an all-nighter though. Obsessively checking UCAS from 6am
