    lool ur school actually makes effort .... I wanted to apply for pharmacy I am predicted AAB but I didn't cuz when I went to work experience during the summer holidays it was sh*t and boaring so then I thought I am gonna do radiography. cuz I like fancy machine and it involves all three sciences ....
    hmmm yeah i've given that some thought but idk haha if i was gonna do it i'd go for radiotherapy though not radiography

    i enjoy chemistry and the module on drugs so thought yeah why not sounds cool i'll be a hospital pharmacist though no way in hell am i standing behind a till nuh uh that IS boring!

    well the theory is alright so far

    the coursework - i am helpless
    we're not even at the programming and development stage and i'm already ****ting myself - can't really program and don't know how i'll manage

    got a B in AS and considering retaking in order to give myself more of a chance to get an A this year!

    how about you?

    I have done some revision but not as much as I would have liked because of problems and busy I feel guilty any comments ?
    feel exactly the same as I had planned to start revising and haven't even finished homework! So seriously wouldn't worry. Better to have a decent break now

    Exactly the same position as you with the coursework! How far are you with the theory, what chapter? Are you using the OCR textbook or anything different. Yep i'm retaking a module as well, f452 was pretty tough...

    yeah wtf even was that exam? OCR you *****es - i am like 100% sure my paper got swapped with someone else's cos i came out with a B and idek how because i literally did not answer the pseudocode questions!

    I'm using the textbook, these notes
    https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rc...06379543,d.d24

    and this guide:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCR-Computin.../dp/0957140223

    there are ones for 451. 452 and 454! they're really good i do recommend them!

    we've just finished the fetch decode and execute cycle... but we rushed the whole von neuman architecture thing so i need to revise all of that!

    what about you?
