    One example out of millions and times have changed. Statistically you're better off with a level passes, but if you work hard in life you'll get somewhere

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I'm not debating that, the point being made through my example is that hope is not lost if further education is not something that you want to persue. After all it's also a fact that a majority of graduates at degree level do not venture into the field that they once aspired to be in, often ending up in jobs that they are somewhat overqualified for: a postgrad ending up as a manager at McDonalds.

    This thread fills up with replies so quickly that it's nigh-on impossible to keep track of it. I think it's the nerves... We're all a bit (or in my case quite a lot) nervous about it so we just post to try and ease those nerves.

    Yeah, that's not helping much for me.
    Yup, but I'm the same in real life,it's nearly all I talk about!

    hey if we want to retake can we retake just one exam, e.g. for eng lit just unit 1 or for german just unit 1 listening? or do we have to retake the whole subject? xxx
    From what I remember some subjects do one thing and some do the other, so it depends... You'll have to ask your teacher

    I've been doing some Physics Unit 3/AS because I did Double Science and AS is quite mad there seems to be loads of language to learn(Intermediate Vector Bosons and that).I've already done a lot of AS Maths work and some A2 Maths work too in Year 11 aswell as in last years summer holidays and I've done IGCSE Further Maths so I haven't done much Maths over the holiday.What Summer Homework did you get?-who could be cruel enough to give you homework over the summer holidays?I have heard from the college that there will be lots of homework(3 hours per subject quoted), when I get back to College so it seems unfair to get Summer Homework.I hardly ever got homework in Year 10'/11, about an hour a week often less closer to exams so we could revise.
    Omgg!!!! In year 11 I had 12 hours of prep per week!!!!

    You go to the persons words you want to quote and u click the button that has this on it.... +" (and has a little speech bubble beside it,with a pen) which will put it in the comment box below and then u can write your reply EASY! its just one button, hope i explained it ok :/

    This is probably just me, but I can't find the + on my phone version? I've done something but I'm not sure if it's worked ahaha! But thank you for the explanation- it makes perfect sense, I think it's just my inability to work this app haha!

    It depends on the type of course, for example my friend has resat one maths module 3 times (her maths was modular) whereas the guys in the year above who resat English Language had to do the coursework on top of their A-Level work and sit the exam...so I'm a bit confused too, but I think it just depends on your course.

    (Please correct me if I'm wrong)

    Prince Harry got a B and a D at A-Level. Sometimes I sit and laugh at the sorry excuse of his life...
    I laughed harder than I should have done at this.

    A B and a D at A-level is pretty respectable I think. Loads of people drop out at GCSEs and loads find A-levels very hard.

    I was predicted mainly A/A*, but there isn't a chance in the world I will meet even half of them!

    I remember for my january modular exams I had a dream the night before results I got 3 Bs in bio, physics, history... but on march 7th I ended up getting 3 A* in the modular exams... so dreams don't determine what you will get so no need to worry

    Jatz
    Yeah definitely , your dreams just string together everything that is at the back of your mind. When I sat my January exams I kept having dreams that I got 3 U's but on results day I got 3 A*s- and met Russell Brand the same day !

    Lord Alan Sugar - he left school with only 1 GCSE in English Lit. I'm pretty sure he's richer than you'll ever be.
    Different people have different fates though and I'm certainly not organised enough to start a business and remember its not about making money, its about finding an enjoyable job.A lot of the time, Lord Sugar appears angry on The Apprentice and money does not make happiness.What is really important is making enough money to survive, which is doable on the doll but is risky because they are strict but you need to find an enjoyable job or yuor life is pointless like Maths Research.
