    I am taking Geography, History and psychology and did take chemistry but found it so difficult and after Easter decided I would drop it. Better to get 3 good grades than 4 OK ones,
    I hate Chemistry too, smart idea dropping it, wish I'd thought of that! But i'm definitely dropping it at A2!

    I keep recalculating how many UMS I need for each subject to get an A, just in case I made a mistake the other 100 times I have done it. I need to chill.
    WHY HAVE I NOT DONE THIS YET!?

    My coach suggested I shoot longbow for a change as a bit of fun, so it should be pretty good What are you going to see?
    Oh very nice I'm thinking about seeing Kick ass 2 just to kill the time

    Think I've made a mistake. My firm offer is AAB for law at Cardiff but I think I may have underestimated myself - if I come out with A*AA on Thursday can I upgrade? Or even AAA?

    Yeah I know that pretty much everyone who doesn't want to do medicine in my school want to drop it. Unless they hate maths or physics more.
    But good luck to you who knows you may get a good grade in it. The only reason I dropped it is because I knew I didn't need it to do human geography

    For some subjects it is really comforting... and then for others, I've realised that getting the grades I need is next to impossible. Oh dear.

    You could try Adjustment? But unlikely to be many law places going, I would've thought.

    Same here, but there's still quite a few people wanting to take it next year.
    Thank you! I hope I got at least a C, either way, I'm dropping it!

    Haha cheers. Well I am never going to get an A* didn't get one at GCSE's haha I just hope I have done enough for an ABB and then I won't care I will just be so happy haha lol . I am sure we both did fine but you can never tell at A levels it is so annoying. What is worse 3/4 of my year failed their January exams which I didn't have but makes me feel even worse.
    Same I didn't have January exams so after doing my first 2 exams in June it was a huge wake up call hopefully I did pick it up. An I the only one who thinks that there will be a huge increase in students resitting year 12 since they won't receive the wake up call until June? Obviously there will still be a lot of students achieving great grades but only a few at my school actually done well in January exams with the majority getting fails or close to fails.

    Almost certainly not. The Unis that offer AAA and A*AA are highly competitive, especially seen as it's law we're talking about. A*AA would be LSE and UCL. They're never in clearing lol.

    EDIT: I would still try adjustment though.

    Thanks for the responses. Could be worth a look on results day if I do well, although I'm nervous as now!
