    What did you think of it? I do A Level maths
    Do you need to prepare stuff for it? I hope it goes well!
    I'm good thanks, I have almost no homework right now
    I've had 3 sessions, one for M2, one for S2 and one for C2. I enjoyed Core the most even though I expected Mechanics to be more interesting How are you finding it?

    Nope, wasn't even told what pretend job it would be for It went pretty well though, but apparently I was fidgeting

    Same here! :cool:

    I'm currently doing S1 and C1, and will be starting M1 and C2 soon I'm finding it really good, all kind of links into GCSE so it's not too difficult

    I imagine I'd be awful in an interview, I get so nervous with things like that!

    I've only found ones up to 2010 on extreme papers and the like, otherwise no :/ Try contacting your teacher, as they presumably will have access to them on e-AQA.
    I'm sure the teachers will want to keep them a secret until after the mocks though... :/ oh well. I found a specimen paper which was quite useful!

    So you're doing Maths & FMaths? Which is better, M S or C? :cool: When I tell people I enjoy maths they just look at me in disgust :sexface:

    Have you never had one? I had to lie because I was asked about something that I accidentally left on my PS!

    Nope just maths, we do C1, C2, S1 and M1 in AS, then if I carry it on to the full A Level I'll do C3, C4, S2 and M2 (I think)
    I personally like C and S the same (can't judge M get as haven't done it), but I'm better at stats

    Never had one, our school sometimes does stuff like that but didn't for our year for some reason

    Maths is my favorite subject, I'm looking forward to taking it at A-level. I didn't take Further Maths though.

    Same! I was so annoyed when I found out we're going to get revision sessions during school instead which sucks because I can only do proper revision at home :/

    Don't sweat it, revising now is (for me) pointless because I'll just forget it again and I find it hard to sustain the effort lol

    What? That's terrible! We're getting two weeks of no timetable and when we don't have exams, we go to one of the supervised rooms and revise so it's pretty good I can't complain tbh. Also, we get free exam breakfast and stationary yay!

    Normal lessons during mock; no study leave for the real things, normal lessons with some revision sessions.

    Your school is nice. We're on normal timetable. But at least we get study leave for the real thing

    Yeah, I'm pretty happy about how it's going to go but we don't get study leave for the real thing either which is really annoying

    I can only revise properly at home too I don't think we're having proper revision sessions even, we're just kind of left to chat and 'revise in groups' I honestly think it's going to be so detrimental to my results

    The good things about my school is we can choose whether we want to go to a silent revision room, an "active revision" room or a room with computer access. So, I'm pretty happy about that that sucks for you, I honestly hate revising in groups or with people or as a class because I just revise better on my own, with no noise

    If they did that it wouldn't be as bad for us, but we're just expected to sit in our lessons as normal and get bits and pieces of work done at least you have different options of what to do, if my school did it more like that I wouldn't mind as much
