    Hmm has anyone prepared themselves for starting their AS level courses in September. I am unsure whether or not to. I would like to have a head-start but don't want to lose motivation when I go back and am sitting in lessons bored?
    I'm doing some maths and physics this summer. I'm also doing a ton of history reading and documentary watching, although I'm not sure that counts

    Could have went in to get them but I'd rather wait after seeing the boundaries, I'm not expecting good news.

    Maybe, it's between that and maths at the moment.
    Which Universities are you looking at that. I would love to go to Cambridge. But UCL seems more realistic maybe Nottingham.

    yes I have started some and will start the others after results day
    I have a gazillion bridging essays (pieces of writing, not really essays, but it sounds like more if I say essays) to do, and I've left most of it until the last three weeks - well done me!

    I did, the agreed to email me them (yr 11s aren't allowed in to A level results day) because I had 2 other ASs, which I am very grateful for because I didn't want to wait any longer!

    I know I screwed up one of the big questions but somehow still got an A

    Not fair, you get a 6 day head start. The rest of my school starts on the 4th but Year 12 is on the 9th.

    What exam board did you do English Lit with? Wasn't too confident with coursework and exams didn't go very well so it's not looking good for me either (sure you will do fine though).

    For AS I'm taking Maths, English (lang & lit as the combined course), History and Business Studies (I am doing this on a distance learning course).

    12 week holiday and I'm sick of it now. There is only so much football you can play. There are only so many new movies you can watch. There is only so much money you can spend. I just wanna go back to the normal routine now.

    You'll only regret applying for French if you don't enjoy French I'm going to google it, but don't you need Chemistry for degrees like Veterinary Science? :confused:

    I'm taking:
    Chemistry
    Philosophy and Ethics
    Spanish
    Biology or French

    I'm not sure what I want to do, so doing what I enjoy and seeing what it brings me
    I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Maths, English Literature. Rock solid.

    hmmm no medical work experience yet ..but I have 3 months voluntary in a primary school working with SEN children and I have 8 months voluntary at a care home (8 months today actually :lol: )
    Sorry I know you posted this a while ago but I was just wondering how you managed to volunteer in a school? Like, did you do it during term time and if so, how? Sorry this probably sounds like a stupid question but it's something I'm interested in doing.

    That's true (although I don't play football ), but my sister will be in year 8 so gets an extra day off - I suppose it counters the month and I half I had off when she was still at school!!

    Agree with you so much here! It is nice to have a break, but it has been too long especially without a job. Also I know I'll have probably quite a busy and stressful two years ahead of me so I'd rather get my head into it asap, then hopefully keep on top of it.
