    Woo me too, might go for law though .

    I'm going to do:

    Maths
    Biology
    Chemistry
    History

    But I'm good at maths

    Don't do a subject at A Level unless you enjoy it. Maths is a difficult subject and if you don't like it you qon't be motivated enough to succeed.

    Do something you enjoy instead.

    Yeah, I was thinking of either Biology, Chemistry, History and English Lit OR Computing OR Pshycology. But the better I'm getting at math, the more I'm enjoying it, and I love how I really struggled and was a D grade in Year 10, C by the end of Year 10, and now I'm almost a B grade, so I'm finding it easier which is really boosting my happiness and confidence, but I'm still worried about taking it as an AS because it's so difficult. I know it's highly useful for getting into good universities for Biochemistry though. :confused: Really don't know what to do...

    Seriously don't do it.

    An A in Eng Lit is going to be more useful to you than an E in Maths.

    I'd personally go for English.

    Yeah I might do. I just don't want to regret my choices; because I absolutely love the Biochemistry course and I'm determined to get onto it right now. I don't want to take History and English and then regret taking them because I got 5 rejections on the course.

    UCL only want Chem + Another subject

    You won't get rejections.
    Why not physics?

    Chem + Bio will hopefully do me fine, but what about the mathematical content in the Biochemistry course? I'm worried about that, although I do have a keen interest in the course and hopefully I'll find it a bit easier and be able to compose a list of things I need to work on so I don't get tripped up too much.

    My brother took physics and hated it; and recently I'm not enjoying it at GCSE, so I feel I wouldn't enjoy it at AS/A2.

    I think you'll be fine, more than likely because you'll be studying it in a biochemical context.

    Fair enough - stop stressing!

    Haha will do! I'm so determined to get out of school, I'm so bored with it and I hate it - I have a terrible time socially - so I want to make sure I'm doing well academically so I can get out of here.

    Get good GCSE grades, get some good A levels at a decent sixth form, get onto the degree course I want to do and study/live far far far away.

    At my school our lessons are 40 minutes but our ICT sessions are double lessons, so we end up having two 1hr 20 mins lessons a week. In the exam we have to design a website.

    Our teacher wants us to come into school during half term so we can practice; I'm on holiday on both the days that they're holding these sessions though so after half term he wants me to stay behind after school on a Friday to practice

    Do you have your mocks coming up soon?
    Oh okay! There is a kit of variation in schools' lesson times. I thought 1 hour was common! That actually sounds like fun. Except for maybe the time pressure etc. Do you have to do it Dreamweaver though?

    Really? Wow. O_o Are you going for them? ^_^

    I'm not sure if mine are in January or Summer. I'm in Year 10 btw. I keep forgetting to ask! I will do so tomorrow.

    (Original post by vd12345)
    i don't know! im still confused. We did ordinary and extraordinary in year 10, and my theme was basketball.
    Will you ask? So many different things in the subject. Ah okay! Good luck anyway!



    ... You like basketball? :colone:

    At my friend's school they have 1 hour lessons too, I think it is more common than 40 minutes. We've been practicing in class and it doesn't seem too bad Yep, we're using Dreamweaver.

    I might go if I'm struggling and if there are other people there. I don't want to be the only one there with my teacher haha! It's really annoying that it's on a Friday though :mad:

    Oh yeah, I think the Year 10 mocks are usually in the summer; mine were anyway. What subjects are you doing?

    I think it was organised by group of teachers or something. It's true though, Ofsted just puts unnecessary pressure on our teachers and wastes their time making them do things which are not to help us but to help the schools Ofsted report.

    Yeah, I was going to say. Other than 1 hour lessons in my area I've seen 50mins one. That's it with any variations! Oh okay! Do you get a brief or any time to plan before?

    That might be a little awkward. :mmm: It could be beneficial but it depends on you! It does sound very annoying + your mind might be focussed as much on IT on a Friday. :/

    I have a little while then! We have quick a lot going on in summer though. Ooh. D:

    We're given a brief but I don't think we have any time to plan beforehand

    Haha true, I think it would be good if there was only one other person there with me; then I would still get a lot of help without too much awkwardness I know, the same thing happened to me last year when I was forced into an after school Biology session - it wasn't on a Friday but it was just before the end of the school year so I just couldn't focus and didn't learn a thing

    Ah cool I do English Lit, English Lang, Maths, Double Science, ICT, Psychology, Spanish and R.S. I'm starting to wish I had chosen History instead of ICT now...I wanted to do both but I couldn't

    Goodnight!
