    It sort of is tho in some respects. Helping people to understand ensures you properly understand and also makes it a bit less compartmentalized than just revising a specific module as you are jumping around all over the place in terms of the content used
    Yeah, fair point. I never really thought about it that way before, thanks!

    heyy guys
    hope your all well x

    Since as there's no thread for AS exams 2016 thought id make a start and im new on here soo be nice lol

    Im just feeling super anxious about AS exams next month,
    I'm currently studying Biology,Chemistry and Maths for AS and my exams start 18th may but thtas maths and im confident for maths as im getting A's and im doing a lot of past papers but im worried for c2 and S1 in maths i guess id be okay for c2 with abit more prep but s1 thts in june so luckily I have more time !!26th May and 27th may is my bio and chem exam, both unit 1.

    Im planning on covering all the content for unit 1 bio and chem by end of this week and then doing past papers; I have 6 weeks to do tht id say and then byt he end of next week cover all the content of unit 2 bio and chem. And want to start doing past papers for unit 2 bio and chem from 16th april up until exams.
    that leaves me with 7 weeks of revision for unit 2
    I know bits and bobs of the content but I have made a start on revision yesterday and did some today it has been quite effective.

    What do you guys think of my plan to prepare for my AS exams ?
    Do you think it's possible or will I even be able to achieve AAA in these subjects ?
    ohh and I study 8-10 hours a day with breaks!

    let me know how you guys did in your AS exams and how much preparation you did?

    Thanks for reading and goodluck with your revision!!
    Hey, i'm doing maths, chemistry, physics and ICT AS and like you i'm worried about new the specimen papers. If i was you, create an Excel Table with all the exams your doing like CHEM1 and list all the papers your doing (using freeexampapers.com) and tick them off as you do the paper. Also work on your c2 weaknesses if your good at c1.

    Oh, that's fair enough! Be sure to take some days off and make sure you don't burn out!

    I'm doing M FM Physics. But I've already sat C1-4, M1-3, S1-2, FP1 and Physics 1-3 this January.

    Oh no... I have three exams on one day but that isn't nearly as awful as your situation - they're each only 1 hour 15 minutes long.

    Push on! :console:

    This is weird but i feel the same way i am doing Maths Physics Chemistry and Biology ( i know not the smartest choices) and they all seem to be going alright specially Maths as i find it the easiest and although i need to finish C2 course as i have one more chapter left ( trigonometric Identities) i feel confident on C1 and S1 as i have been doing past papers and also if you need focused quesions on C1 Type this in Google " T madas Maths " and you will find some great practise papers for C1 and C2.

    Anyway as for The sciences - Biology is my least favourite and i haven't yet started revision for it yet but i have started preparation for chemistry and physics so far they're proving to be the easiest specially since there isnt much to learn like biology.For example chemistry you have 3 chapter Organic Inorganic and Physical however i dont know what board you do but for AQA they changed the whole course - Practicals are now worth 15% of the course.(which i hate tbh)

    what i predict i will get for AS

    Maths: A
    Chemistry: A
    Physics:A/B
    Biology:C

    Hey guys I'm doing bio, physics,chem and maths so again not the easiest options but with consistent work I seem to be doing ok. I have 3 summer exams for maths which are C1,C2 and S1. Only worried for S1 due to the boredom I'm feeling covering the content and doing papers is not exactly fun.
    My predictions for AS
    Bio-A
    Physics-A/B
    Maths-A
    Chemistry-A

    Hi Zacken. I wanted to ask you how it might be possible to get 300/300 ums in as maths as I think I can, but would like some tips from someone who has done a lot more maths modules and has experience in doing them. Thanks in advance!

    I'm doing AS maths too and find it quite easy. But apparently unis don't really give a **** because of how easy AS is.
