    I've done some prep for bio and chem, haven't really looked into Psychology that much. Only thing I'm concerned about for that is reading out in front of the class :') I hope I don't have to do anything like that, I freeze when someone asks me to read out loud haha. I've gotten up to Unit 1, 2.3 on Bio, and Unit 1, 2.6 on Chem. Finding it manageable, but there is definitely a LOT to take in
    A lot of my friends didn't do as well as they expected first time, you'll get those grades up, you know what to expect next time and hopefully wont have any personal issues to worry about Good luck!

    Nice to see you are reading ahead, that is a very smart idea though i dont think you should divert to much attention to a levels until you have finnished ur gcse's. do you know what exam board your A levels will be on? Oh and presentations dont come up very often but if you plan on going to university you will need to be able to pluck up the courage to present Thanks i hope i will i dropped a subject(English lit) because i was finding it too hard and a waste of time so should be able to use that time effectively for my retakes Message me if you need anyhelp wiith chemistory or biology

    Yeah I'm 17, finished them last year and decided to do an Art course this year (silly move on my part) :| Finished that and decided to do A levels this year! I have my results A*A*A*A*A*AABBC
    Biology is AQA, Chemistry is AQA, Physics is OCR and Psychology is AQA as well I think
    That's fine, presentations I'm fine with because I can prepare, it's just random intervals of 'You read this bit out loud', comes as a shock and I freeze haha! I'm hoping they're a little more grown up about that in College. It seems like a primary school thing to get kids to learn to read.

    Ahh nice one, well good luck with your exams and I'll message you if I have any other questions. I shall also add you as a friend so I don't forget. +rep

    I might do maths, further maths, economics and Spanish. Not sure though.

    Edit: Why the hell was this negged??
    Edit 2: Seriously, why is this being negged? Because you don't like the subjects I want to do? Bit of a stupid reason to neg tbh.

    So, what is everyone in Year 11 planning to take next year?

    I will talk either of the following two :

    Physics, Maths, Further Maths, Economics
    Physics, Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry


    If I think I can handle it then I might do 5 AS levels and cut down to 4 in A2. Only time will tell.

    im thinking of doing travel and tourism and sociology

    I am (at the moment) planning to do Geology, English Literature, Psychology & Geography. I am not completely confirmed with these though as I was thinking of Maths - though it literally would kill me.
