    I've already done the chem and bio coursework. We have the physics one coming up next month. What did you get on yours?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Well, my school does all the coursework in year eleven. We started with physics and I am doing a little bit of chemistry as well. How was chemistry and biology anyway?

    Well, it was exhausting and just plain hard. Although, I might be bias since my grades in the courseworks were quite bad compared to my theories'.

    How's physics? Because I've built up several expectations during my chem and bio year but these past few months are changing my perceptions.

    P.S.

    Sorry for the horrible grammar

    If I wanted to retake science for example would and I only wanted to redo the coursework would I have to sit the exams as well?

    I'm not 100% sure but at a guess, I'd say yes as you'd need to satisfy the 100% terminal rule. Speak to your examinations officer for a definitve answer, though. Also, for controlled assessments, your latest mark will count even if it is lower than the original. :yy:

    Don't worry about it! 😃 Anyway, physics is not really my favourite out of the three, and I just didn't get the point of this coursework at all.

    From what I hear about the physics coursework this year, I think it might be the best one out of the three experiments though.

    Although, I am a bit nervous about it since I'm not prepared. With bio and chem, I actually studied a bit before the start of the gcse course but with physics, I became a bit overconfident. Since, I've always thought that being adequate in maths would make you adequate in physics.

    How far are you into the course? I've already finished chem and bio last year and I've just finished P1 and P4 before half-term. Currently doing P5 - the 'hardest' unit or so my teacher says.

    P.S.

    Sorry for the long reply

    About to start the high control part of the physics coursework. Doing the main experiment for chemistry coursework now and starting biology coursework after coming back from half term. I have just finished B6 and I have nearly finished both P6 and C6.

    Good luck with C7 and possibly P7. B7 is surprisingly easy since it's basically a more in depth 'round up' (did I use that correctly?) of the previous units.

    I'm not saying it's really easy though that you don't need to revise, it's just easier than C7 since you already have enough grounding (did I use this correctly too?) in the previous units

    You can, yes, but there are some schools that have policies where people are not allowed to resit. That won't stop you from retaking exams privately, however.

    If you live in England though and you wish to retake, you will need to retake ALL exams for a particular subject (not including controlled assessment/coursework) from now on.
    Thank you for the help, do you need to pay though?

    That's OK.

    Usually, there is a fee associated with retaking (the exact amount depends on your school).
