    Ah, well that's unfortunate! Though if you're going to uni, you would've had to leave it anyway wouldn't you? I have work Thursday morning at 11....SO, I'll either be going in and pratically handing out free items to customers OR I'll be wrapping the plastic bags around their necks. Could go either way that morning.

    What've you been doing for the rest of the holidays to pass time?! Ha!
    Yeah so I had mixed feelings about it..then again I could always find a job at my uni city! Haha where do you work? If I were I wouldnt even be doing either, i'd be dead

    God knows. Bits and bobs really...my summer is so dead :lol: went out a couple of times, explored london more (lived here for 8 years and I didnt know how truly beautiful london could be, oops), cooking to prepare for uni and stuffing myself with that aha. You? Everyones having amazing summers it makes me depressed man

    Most don't. Just the likes of Oxbridge/LSE do.

    I say!?
    Give that another day or two, and all official mark schemes will be released - you'll probably find it in the Threads made!

    For instance, I know that EdExcel has released their AS Mathematics official mark schemes already from about a week and a half ago!

    Oh wow, that was so quick. When do you start uni? I'm not starting anything till I've gotten my results + I'm hoping to start in October so there's timeee
    I was far, far too excited so my friend and I had to go out and shop!
    My insurance starts September 1st and I am not confident enough that I will be getting into my firm. Plus I am going on holiday a few days after results and if I was going to my insurance (on Sept 1st) I would be coming home from holiday early there fore leaving me with very little time to shop after getting my results, but it is really just excitement!

    Unit 3 was def a memory game.. You just had to memorise an essay and hope you wrote everything down right on the day! I hated that if you didn't know the question, you were stuffed. I preferred the first 2 exams where if you didn't know the main question, that was okay because it was max 12 marks and you could still do okay! On unit 3 and unit 4 you really had to know your stuff on any possible question :/
    I also much preferred the first 2 style of exams although it is to be expected that A2 is more difficult and you would be expected to write essays in order to get the high marks. I'm hoping to study psychology at uni, yourself?
