    I actually can't wait. Yes, three more years of hard-work and then probably another three or four years of hard-work with the addition of freedom

    Ikr people seem to fanticise that uni is all about getting drunk and being a independent and take no notice of the workload. I know varies by course, but still

    how did you find core science... for me c1 was horrible
    Found C1 and B1 quite easy, but P1... I'm still having nightmares. Probably due to the fact our 'teacher' didn't really manage to explain the content all year

    in c1 i messed up on the whole bromine water question with the test and companies so lost like 10 marks there but i was really happy with this years 6 mark questions especially biology, i swear the exact same question was in a past paper.

    do you know what you got for your ISA ?

    yeah , my teacher told me the same too... what do you think the grade boundaries will be like ? considering how everyone in your school or that you know found the exam ?

    for me most people in my school found biology the easiest so i would say 48 for an A* then c1 was generally an easy paper but a bit mixed (not for me though ) so i would say 47 for an A* then p1 was pretty mixed but most found it easy so i would say 47 for an A*

    I'm not really sure tbh. Everyone I spoke to found B1 really easy. Everyone who wasnt in our physics found C1 the hardest. I've just mainly been speaking to a class of people who werent even really taught physics (my class).

    I tried to learn all of Latin in one go last year. It's better to do it step by step and consistently re-read them so that they're well memorised

    It's better spending more time on topics that you personally find more difficult but also topics that are deemed A* right?

    Practice papers are a must, I think it's more effective if you get someone else to mark them.
    Yes, but remember that A* questions are relatively limited, in the way that there aren't too many of them in the paper. Have a good understanding of the basics first: but yes, in order to get an A*, you will need to be able to do the 'A* questions'.

    Practice papers are the main way to revise in my opinion. Once you think you know pretty much all the course, do past paper after past paper; see what you get wrong; revise; repeat.

    Also, use the exam boards' specifications: that is everything you need to know, so use that as a revision checklist.

    That's quite impressive.

    Well, there's food tech, home economics, food and nutrition, geology,Chinese(mandarin), Gaelic, classical Greek, digital photography and that's about it

    There's also B-Tech Computing, which is a bit different
