    Is it crazy that part of a small (5%) part of me wants to self study ASs in physics, electronics and computing this year?
    You lot get to do electronics. You lucky dude. I hate how some schools/colleges don't do certain subjects. As in I wanted to do economics and wouldn't have minded computer science either but only private schools offered them where I am now other schools are starting them for GCSE well computer sciences anyway

    Hi guys I need help...
    In AS level I messed up really bad and I'm left with Chemistry (E), Biology(E) and maths statistics(E)
    I really really really want to become a doctor but seen as I dropped maths stats for a modern foreign language (now predicted B for A2) and my chemistry teacher isn't making my life easy and predicting me an E and the same with biology means the chances of getting into biomedical science Is ruined help me what shall I do

    application sent back to me

    Ugh its the AS and A2 problem again...
    Am I not supposed to enter all my AS-levels and then all of my A2s... they say that I've entered my ASs twice both in AS and A2... but she told me I could

    argh I want unis to see what I got at AS, is that not too much to ask UCAS?

    So if you chose to self study electronics I would understand why you would want to though

    Ah fair enough, I awoke to do some biology. We're currently doing intensive farming which isn't as dull as you'd imagine but still not very relevant to the biology I'm interested in.
    I might post my CDs (not the disk) on here at the end of yr 13 for the people who want to stay in contact .
    My teacher has made us get into groups and "teach" the class the section - My group is doing intensive farming. Wayhey.

    Well, Exeter for evolutionary biology. The main issue is that it's clear from my personal statement it won't be my first choice as it's much more focused on evolutionary/biological anthropology. However it is heavily centred around evolution so that's why I'm going for it haha. Plus my chemistry AS grade doesn't exactly help

    You?

    Ooh ok, hopefully as there's a lot of common ground they won't mind too much? You could always ask to send a second personal statement about it, that or just take the risk as I would imagine it's not a particularly common course so your problem won't be an unusual one.

    I have that problem as I'm applying for a mixture of courses but I'm hoping to make my PS about 2/3 physics, 1/3 music to cover both and hope for the best My tough one is Edinburgh for physics and music, love the course but there's no way I'll get on it

    Don't do economics, sorry!

    That's what I'm really hoping for haha! That's true and precisely, it's not exactly competitive

    Oooh I see! I'm sure you'll be okay aww why do you think that?

    You'll be fine, and as for the chemistry grade that's perfectly normal, I'm so glad to have dropped it!

    Because their standard offer is AAA, minimum ABB and I will (hopefully, although as it stand's it's BBB) be predicted ABB (also hopefully, I can get higher than this!). Also, only 53% of applicants get offers, which ridiculously low compared to my other courses! I can always hope though...

    I guess you could enter the dropped AS as AS.
    Then enter A2s as grade pending but enter the first 3 modules

    I think I'm biased, I just hate electricity! The rest of physics is fine, but electricity horrible

    Computer science could be interesting though, they don't offer it at my school (or electronics,come to that matter) although I have a friend wanting to do it at uni

    Well I'm sorry. It would be obvious. They'll get told by your teachers. This way they get module information also

    It's not a product which is what I assume you are confused by

    Remember

    \ln(a)+ln(b)=\ln(ab)

    but \ln(a+b) is not equal to \ln(a)+\ln(b)

    Yeah, I need to get x on its own.
