    Bridging work? Further Maths is gonna be my b*tch:cool:. Jokes aside, no I haven't but I'm not worried because Maths is my strong point. Chemistry worries me.

    Woop I'm doing the same! And Chem is also my weakest one (which is why I'll be dropping it!)

    Haha lol i am envious of people who are naturally gifted at maths! I'm the opposite, Chemistry is probably one of my strongest subjects! No doubt, it will probably be 10x harder at A-level!

    I may drop Chem after AS depending on what I get. If I scrape an A or get lower I will. If I get a comfortable A then I'll probably carry it on.

    Haha I wish I could study things like History, Philosophy and Spanish alongside the sciences but obviously A-Levels are too time consuming for that to be realistic unless you are L'Evil Fish.

    True, if I find it interesting enough and not stupidly difficult I may consider keeping it... But I doubt I will, I was never amazing at it, and I heard the AS-A2 jump is killer

    Whilst that is true I also believe American universities only do group interviews
