    Although getting a higher mark in Media/Economics is better, but it seems top unis do like Further Maths

    But that's up to you.. check which unis you want to go to and stuff

    True, but it calms me down for some reason. Plus sometimes it triggers a memory if you used both the formulas in one lesson. The physics equation sheet is so useless...

    I chose physics since it seems more interesting. But I don't want to take Maths or Physics. So does that mean I wont get into medicine?
    What are the ideal topics?
    Man I am so stressed
    No it doesn't if u choose physics and maths but u have to choose Biology and Chemistry

    Probably the fact that I'm on CCEA but still, it is quite demanding trying to learn all the equations before the exam... What are you struggling on?

    Pretty much everything in general. I'm a biology person I'm terrible at maths, and I always get the calculations wrong for some reason. This year I'll try to knuckle down and get that B grade in science! Hopefully an A, but I'm sure physics will pull me down

    Any additional science people out there? AQA? I'm looking for the exam dates and I'm confused between "(Biology) unit 2" or Certificate in double science award (biology)"? My teachers do the whole "I'll get the exam dates for you" but never come back pfft

    I don't exactly struggle with chemistry but I do get caught out with it sometimes, but hey, we all have our downsides ... Hopefully you get that A!
