    :mmm:

    Chemistry mark schemes are so fussy... Dropped 9 marks in my test!:rolleyes: such pedants!:mad:



    Haven't done pracs in chem or bio
    The horror :P! Does it seem like a step-up?
    R.e the pracs, that's a shame. Perhaps you'll do something soon. Perhaps an experiment where you investigate the effects of exercise on heart rate, in bio,

    Hey all, news to this thread.

    I took a year off studying last year (that was when I was meant to be doing year 13), but I'm back and doing A2s in Maths, Further Maths and Physics. After a year off its taking some getting used to, and finding myself having to relearn stuff, but I think I'm managing!

    I'm pretty interested in Product Design Engineer, but that's only one of my choices so if I don't get into that it'll probably be a mechanical engineering course (if I manage to get accepted anywhere!).

    Anyways hi.
    Nice subjects.
    Good luck.
    I've not heard of that engineering field but cool .

    It's strongly recommended for many science courses at University so many do it. Additionally, it's considered by many to be the 'easiest' of the sciences, at Alevel.

    I'm not applying till next year as I underperformed this exam season but I've narrowed down my choices to:
    Cambridge, Imperial, Southampton/Bristol, Newcastle/Sheffield, Nottingham.
    I'll finalize the "/"s by visiting them, this yr
