    Touch on C2 and S1 and go to the library everyday to revise for a few hours.

    I've been to visit one university which was Bristol as I thought of applying there and after my trip I decided it wasn't the right place for me. Once I start getting my offers I will go to the top 3 unis I would like to go to before making my firm and insurance choice. I wouldn't say you have to rush with open days but they are quite a good experience because you get to attend taster lectures which can give you some sort of idea whether you will be able to survive that course for 3 or even 4 years.

    Volunteering is a bunch of bull in all honesty unless you want to be a nurse which you don't sooo its best if you get a work placement instead lol
    Oh, right, yh that sounds good

    And well if I go to lectures now, it's highly likely that I'll say I won't be able to survive given that it's hard for me to cope with A levels, no? :P

    Really? Why do you say that? Won't the unis think that he did it coz he enjoyed it instead of for the money? :P

    Well if yourvolunteering experience will be useful for your PS then that's fair enough but I know so many people who done volunteering and it added no value to their personal statement. So just make sure not to waste your time.

    HEY OP! I failed too! But I'm redoing year 12 again instead of year 13. I was very naive last year about revision, work and the difficulty in A levels in general. I am en route to get three A's this year so I am smashing out papers like no tomorrow. :P

    Economics requires quite a bit of maths at degree level, make sure you brush up lol!

    Ah never knew, I thought it got really maths heavy at Uni. Yeah that was my point. He could have explained it better.

    Wierdly enough the people in my year that didn't do Unit 3 Chem ended up getting U's in AS Chemistry. Obvs, that wouldn't be a reason to tell people not to take A-level Chem.

    I'm not doing pure econ. I'm doing politics with economics or economics politics and public policy. All the unis I'm applying to such as Exeter only require an A in GCSE maths. The only reason I failed maths and the entire year was because I was too relaxed and thought I wouldn't need revision. I'm not saying I'm a maths genius but I'm defiantly capable of learning it once I put my mind to it.
