    Every school! But we don't have mid-term though; from September-December without stopping however, we always start our summer holidays end of June :P That, and the weather, are basically the only things I like about Spain hahahaha Wish I was British
    I had a spanish family live in my house for a while. The children had really nice tan. I'd love to go spain. Hahah Britain has funny weather. It'll be sunny in the morning and then suddenly rain. Messes up your day.

    Thank you I really liked it as well, especially the 12 marker
    Yeah same in my sixth form, a LOT of people doing worse than expected. One of my friends got 100 in unit 1 in Jan wks got a D in this one
    You're welcome! Yeah that wasn't too bad at all. Well, in that case maybe it wasn't entirely down to the teacher!

    You need 90% at A2 overall so yes 180/200 since 200 x 0.90 = 180

    Hello! I hear you either retook a year or a subject? Any advice for me, I'm planning on retaking year 12
    ;hi:

    I didn't technically retake a year, I did a further year due to illness

    If you're doing similar subjects you would have a grounding in it already, so it would mainly be about perfecting exam technique and having a greater understanding of the content. Work consistently but don't burn yourself out; if you don't understand something then ask rather than a few days before exams otherwise that will stress you out; start revising early so it won't be a last minute rush
