Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. Hi everyone!
I'm panicking about the maths content side of the exam! My maths is fine and I'm ok at it, it's just what we actually need to KNOW for the exam calculations-wise!
Do we need to remember all of the calculations and methods we have learnt?? Or just how to manipulate and solve the equation using info they have given us in the question?
I hope that makes sense! Thanks!
2. we need to learn that we will fail, or if you are me and my friend, fail again. if you are doing the AS for the first time, get out and drop the subject from your timetable now. it only gets worse

You need to be able to calculate heart rate of a graph, you always needed to manipulate data from the graph anyway,Chi squared ?,percentage change and you definitely need to be able to work out the chances of someone getting a recessive disorder.
