    I'm planning on doing English Lit, Psychology, Sociology and Politics at A Level but I'm worried about these subjects being regarded as 'soft'? I'm not sure what I want to do at uni but English is my favourite subject and I enjoy Psychology, which I am currently studying at GCSE. However, would Sociology be too similar to Psychology?

    i wouldn't say they are soft because to be honest it depends on what you want to do after sixth form/College so for sixthform/college you need to choose subjects which direct you into what you want to do, so i wouldnt care about waht other people say as long as they help me to acheive my goals.

    i am doing - A-level chemistry
    A-level Geograph
    A-level maths
    A-level Biology

    because i want go to Medical school- to study medicine

    Your best bet would be to check different uni websites and see what they regard as 'soft'. Normally if 2 subjects overlap quite significantly then they'd prefer you only take one.

    Don't worry about it. Universities only ask for specific subjects in things like science degrees etc, if you know what you want to do for your degree then I would recommend you look at universities and see if they do ask for any specific subjects. Also, psychology is actually regarded as one of the harder A-Levels as it is a science, and sociology and psychology aren't similar at all, they just go hand in hand together.

    Hahaha same here too. I kinda failed my mocks but they didn't go as bad as I thought. You will be fine
    That's good.

    Don't want to jinx mine... :rolleyes: so I'll stay silent on that note. Although our history teacher was marking our papers in a revision session (she told us so as blackmail to be quiet...) and she kept on sighing, laughing incredulously and tutting.

    Thanks anyway for the vote of confidence.

    has anyone started revising for may and june? if so how much a day if not when do u plan to start

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I'm going to do a bit every day if possible after mocks finish - not a lot, just reviewing topics I find hard for 20 mins or so - I've learnt the hard way with mocks (in progress... ) and last-minute late night cramming is taking its toll. Cuz I understood the stuff when I learnt it, it's just applying it to questions and my short term memory that lets me down. Aka it seems I do well only because I cram. :/ Not good. So yeah. Wbu?

    What's the best tip for revision?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Past papers. And going over weak topics brought up by test results and past papers. Learning from mistakes you made in the past and filling in any gaps in your notes . Question technique. I don't know, can't think of anything else right now. Hope this helped a bit.

    A whole page you year 11 filled with 12's and 10's

    meanwhile in the year 10 thread:rip:
    Come to the dark side. We have cookies. Mwahaha.

    Mock Spanish results, ohmygods >_<

    Writing: B. This was absolutely horrid, especially since I struggle with fitting in c.18 verbs into each writing component; I'm hoping to improve this, though I'm not entirely sure how to save for copious amounts of practice and past papers.

    Overall, it gives me a B (为什么为什么) which is a major disappointment as I'm on a predicted grade A, but oh well ...
    Oh gods. That sounds annoying... Someone in my year got told after the first biology exam that she was one mark off a grade boundary so she has to bring it up in the second paper... The pressure must be unreal.

    Hope the remarking goes well.

    Why did you say 'Why why' in Chinese?
    Um. Direct translation isn't great - it's more of a informal saying kind of thing if that makes sense - like 'omg, what is this life' or 'what did I do to deserve this' kind of meaning if that makes sense (butchered up the translation but ya know. life. ) Not my question to answer but hey.

    Truee I'm not too sure how well I have done I got
    Geography- b
    Maths- b
    English- c
    Double science- cc

    I'm happy with geography, my teacher said I can get an A in my real exam for maths (she's basically forcing me to do well so I get an A) with english we hardly did any practice before exam as we were doing more of coursework but after he mocks we did more practice and I believe I can get an A or B (what exam board are you with? My school has changed to Cambridge this year) and for science I did foundation for Biology 1, physics 1 and chemistry 1 so I'm happy but in February we have to do mocks for biology 2, physics 2 and chemistry 2 and i think I'm doing foundation for that however if I get a double cc then I'll be doing higher in summer. I blab on way too much so yeah k thanks for reading baiii .-.
