    do u mean in the given time + work from other subjects? or self-teaching chemistry in general?

    i cant concentrate in class, so its my only option rofl
    Is that all the exams? If so then it should be possible. Why not? 4 months is a long time and if you can focus your work and revision and plan out everything that you have to do then it should be possible.

    I was referring to the fast that you said 4 AS modules. There are only 3, aren't there? :confused:

    Anyway, of course you can.

    well with edexcel you have to get an averge of 90% in C3 and C4 and the other 4 modules you do you need to get an average of 80% to get an a*, not sure how it works for other boards like aqa...hope this helps

    For maths, you need to get 180 UMS from C3 and C4 - an average of 90% in the two. The third applied module doesn't count, but you do need 80% average over the whole 6 units. I'm not sure how it works for other subjects.

    Why did you feel the need to bump your own thread twice within five minutes of posting it?
