    Oh yeah I forgot, they tried to claim at the beginning of the conjuring that it was actually based on real life. It's a movie about ghosts and they expect people to believe that it was real.
    oo really, yea thats kinda stupid most people don't believe in it :/
    literally have no idea what this films about, just wanna see it for the scariness

    what do u mean? scary films can be based on real life though?
    btw wasn't me who negged you.
    Huh... Not believing as in not giving the genre any acknowledgement or care lol. They're just cheap thrills and seem like the same film every time. I used to watch them when I was like 14 or so....

    And no worries, reputation means nothing to me lmao. You get negative reps for having an opinion these days.

    I would have thought it would be the other way round. I really hate biology, hated the stress section in AS as well but something about relationships doesn't really appeal to me.. if that makes sense

    Good luck for 6 days hopefully you've done well! And thank you
    I hated stress! It was toooooo much detail and infornation for my brain to cope with and just became abit boring when I didnt get it!

    Thank you! Good luck too!

    Wow thank you!! It sounds really good! I don't know anyone who has been there before so I didn't know very much but you seem to have really loved it!! I must look into it more then, the effort seems like it would be more worth it now! What did you think of Keele? I've been thinking about it, and a friend of mine's sister is studying there at the minute and she seems to really love it.
    Yeah I have fallen in love with Leicester. As for Keele I am going to an open day on the 18th which is annoying because by then I will know if I passed or failed and if I didn't pass I will be very anxious about going.:confused:

    oo we did exactly the same questions! I came outta the exam and most people had done questions 1+3 so I got a bit worried thinking I picked the hard questions aha (unintentionally)

    It wasn't too bad, but I said that last time and got 30/40 on section A then 6/40 on section B cos I misread it haha. So far I've got A's in all units bar unit 4, which I'm currently on a D.. You?

    That is the point I am also trying to make. It should only be a universities in about the top 10 that not having a 4th AS might reduce your chances of getting an offer. Most of the Univs you mention should be ok with 3 AS's. Legally ALL Univ's are required to give offers on 3 A2's thereby implying 3 AS's as not all students / schools are in a position to do / provide more than 3 subjects. Basically you should not have a problem getting an offer with 3 AS's. If you were to ask the Univ they would say the same.

    Edit : And I don't agree that repeating a year is always bad. If in your repeat year your performance improves you could kind of talk about waking up to realities and pulling up your socks in your personal statement.
    Yeah I guess there are pros and cons of applying with only 3 AS's I do think as I dropped Chemistry my grades should be higher as I didn't have the stress of revising for a subject I knew I was going to do badly in. But you know I only got 2 A's 6B's and a C at GCSE so in theory I shouldn't do well although I did do quite a lot of work towards AS levels. As for the top 10 UNIS I have not got a chance in getting an AAA the highest would be AAB but I am skeptical at achieving that as well. I just really hope I got an A in psychology and B's in history and geography. Oh and an A in general studies as Leicester accepts it as their third subject.

    In terms of retaking the year I really don't want to do that and will only do it if I get BBC or bellow:eek:

    Question 2 and 5 sound familiar, I think I was those. Q2 was basically influences on organisational culture I think?
