    That's a really good point! I mean I wasn't planning on doing French past AS anyway (can't stand the idea of French literature) but I don't knoww..I mean I picked French because I thought I was going to do Medicine and it would be a good contrasting subject but that's not what I want anymore. I think if I do well in Physics at GCSE (like a high A*) then I might change it..I could always ask my French teacher for materials and stuff sp I could learn French as a hobby? Ahhhhhhhh, can't believe I only have 4 days to decide this!
    Or I could go completely different and take Further Maths, Maths, French, Chemistry and Physics..but that would cut off some opportunities if I changed back to medicine again :P And it's not likely to be available on the timetable either whereas FM and 3 sciences will almost definitely be available..
    Wish I had time to take 6 A Levels! :unimpressed:

    I would go for Physics instead of French if I were you - it keeps your options entirely open!
    Good luck anyway, whatever you take!

    You'd need Physics or Maths if you were considering Biomedical Engineering right?
    Yep 100% but you don't need biology.

    Reading some posts... With regards to a level choices, please don't say things like "you need X and Y 100%" because some of it is quite wrong.

    Only say things if you know, or make it clear it's an opinion.

    Thanks for the comments, guys. Saying no is easier said than done. I'd rather not play out my problems anymore as it is likely other people have bigger problems than me right now. I'll just find a way around it
    In my enrollment information pack it says that you don't have to take your parents so maybe you could go without your parents and choose the subjects you want to do.

    Are they all with CCEA? How'd you find the Sciences?? (barely anyone else on here seems to have done them as separate sciences on CCEA, most did Double Award) I would feel the same if school weren't sending me up a mountain as soon as I get my results Can't be bothered to get organised!
    Yep, we are! It's really only in the case of Further Maths though - because you do the Maths in a year and then the Further Maths the next year, it's really like you're only doing 4 each year. Also most people drop it after the Maths A Level is completed so they only have 3 subjects to do in the second year but end up with 4 A Levels overall anyway. It's a nice wee bit of flexibility - only a small number of people do it though!

    Yeah they are all with CCEA.
    I thought they were mostly fine with a few tricky questions. The physics unit 2 exam was really shot or so I thought. I know everyone seems to have done double award.
    I wish I could do a fifth one because I had to sacrafice some subjects I would have liked to do.

    oh right!!!! i get it now thanks!!
    the teachers did spend ages explaining it but i still didnt get it....i hope that the grade boundaries dont go higher its all so mysterious!!
    woow thats great for coursework!! what did u get fo the exam and when did u do it??
    That was my overall grade because they created a spreadsheet with my completed exam result + my marked coursework marks.Overall I got 105/120 UMS (A) for the exam and 165/180(A*) for the coursework 49/60 UMS (A) for Unit 1 and 116/120 UMS (A*) for Unit 3.

    Okay I apologise - I am 99% sure you need physics and maths at a level to do an undergrad degree in biomedical engineering. It's engineering - the whole thing is based on the concepts of maths and physics. I have looked at many different university's entry requirements and every one of them say you need maths and physics to at the very least as level.

    Just over 5 days left. Anxiety is kicking in but listening to pussycat dolls. Im mote anxious about starting college though like s new school new mates etc
    The anxiety is definitely kicking in now-its a lot worse than in previous years because I was worried about doing bad in subjects I was pretty sure I had done well in but now I'm worrying about a subject I really think I haven't done so well in and how I might have done even worse-I'm so scared to pick up that Geography result, the overall result won't be that bad at least a C due to previous units and coursework unless I get an absolutely ridiculous U but that Unit 3 exam result is going to be really bad.

    The exam was pretty hard and had some hard questions but I failed on the questions that should have been there and had started to realise that although I was putting down good points with explanation there was no real links and connections across the piece and that it didn't flow like it should have done and that made me realise why I only got a B in Unit 2 and how bad I've probably done in that exam.

    After the exam, I was pretty sure I had still got an A overall in Geography but now due to this anxiety attack I'm starting to think a B is much more probable and at this rate tomorrow I'll be telling you I've got a C with a very low U in Unit 3.

    The results have to come now even though I'm dreading my Geography teacher finding out I've failed him.

    What did you do for Englit?
    Yeah same! I really liked the Chemistry papers though, especially unit 2 - it was basically memorisation and pretty simple :/ Now that I say that I hope I haven't jinxed it! Physics 2 had some odd ones -our class hadn't been taught anything about polarisation and I had to teach myself that from the revision book hope it's gone well thoughh
    That's a shame - what subjects are you doing?

    In the whole of A-Level maths, my lowest mark was on C1, supposedly the easiest module :ninja:
    I'm pretty sure I know why you didn't do so well in that unit-it was because of silly mistakes wasn't it? Thats why I probably haven't done as well in my Maths GCSE as my Further Maths GCSE.

    I can't believe that I didn't make 2 sides of a square equal to each other and use that to find the perimeter of the square but I just formed an algebraic expression in my Unit 3 exam.

    After looking into my A-level Booklet off the College it appears that some of the entry requirements are incredibly low if you get a D in English Language and a D in Maths there are still quite a few A-Levels available for you providing you did well in English Literature even History allows you to get a D in Language as long as you have got a B in Literature and if you pass one of Maths and English then there are loads of A-Levels available to you because only a few courses ask for both English and Maths.

    Do you mean as in what texts? In that case To Kill A Mockingbird and An Inspector Calls. What did you do? For A level I'm doing Biology, Chemistry , English lit and Spanish.

    Hey guys,

    Just wondering, When sixth forms ask for a grade B in "English" Do they mean English language or Literature? Or combined?

    Oh same here! I was really pleased with how TKAMB went in the exam (having got up at 5am and made an essay plan for the Jem question that very morning) but not so sure about inspector calls or poetry..Speaking of poetry, what did you think of the Unseen?! It was pretty weird!
    Those sound like a nice balanced set of A Levels! Plenty of 'facilitating subjects' :P What do you want do with them? (As in at uni)

    That unseen was actually kind of disturbing. I'm hoping to do medicine at university but if that doesn't work out (hopefully it will) I would like to do something in politics and use my Spanish possibly embassy work. What about you and what did you do for your Shakespeare controlled assessment. I did Macbeth.
