    Edexcel Triple Science - Walk in the park
    I agree with you on B3! However... C3 and P3 were extremely challenging, I'm glad I'm only going on to study human biology and psychology!

    I found P3 the hardest out of them all, but Chemistry and Biology are my two best subjects so I found them great. Good luck to you on thursday!

    guys, is there any subject easier than physics at AS Level? Please advice like really something easier than that because for medicine Biology and Chemistry are the main subjects so i need one more and i am not too sure about physics
    Thanks
    Physics is great though, I'm hopefully going to take it for AS and A2, you could look at what Universities are asking for, and which of them subjects fit in with the option blocks you have to work around

    Haha yea! There was one point where I was considering physics instead of psychology (Maths isn't my strongest subject) but then decided against it as I've realised that neither maths nor physics are really compulsory and it depends on the uni. Do you like maths?
    Nope, I like maths, when I can do it, which is never. I had tutoring through GCSE, so A level was kinda out of the question tbh.
    Ive spoken to some junior doctors and loads of them didn't have maths, so I am reassured.
    What unis are you thinking for dentistry?

    Well, I was originally on the Modular course, however I messed up the exam in January 2012(Only got a B) and a majority of the class fail anyway. The papers are quite weird, the first 2/3rds of the paper is usually fairly easy then BAM they hit you with 3 or 4 tough 6 markers. The school hardly helped my case for an A*/A by waiting until the last minute to sit the exam rather than let us have a pop in January/November and allowing us to re-sit if needed.
    I had a look at the AQA papers and compared to Edexcel, I found the Edexcel ones easier (especially as you only have to do 2 papers); the questions for us are normally straight forward (you either know what they want you to do, method-wise or you don't)

    I found the physical geography paper a lot easier than the human geography paper! One question in the human paper was silly... it went something like 'List 2 external factors that will affect tourism' what did you do for that? (if you remember.) If my memory serves me well I put weather and advertisements. Also, the case study about a country whose development has been hindered by a natural hazard was a stupid question!
    Yes human was definately harder/had more weird questions! Umm I put terroism and exchange rates - we'd covered that exact question in class and got told to write those two things if it came up! But yes some of the case study questions...:hmpf:

    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.
    You almost read my mind :laugh:
    I'm just going to pick the options I want and tell my parents as I'm an external student coming into the school, I didn't get into some of the subjects (that I didn't want to do) as they prioritized their students choices over mine

    Did anyone do the Edexcel triple science exams or the AQA Geography exams? If so, how did everyone find them?
    I did Edexcel Triple Science

    B3: Good Paper! I really liked that one
    C3: Harder than B3, some challenging questions, but doable
    P3: :cry2: I thought it went awful! The equations were horrible. I could have cried coming out of that exam!

    How about you?

    B3: That was the best paper out of all the summer exams! The majority of the questions were simple and straight forward... just one question! It was something about the behaviour of an animal and I put 'innate!' ;c Glad it was only a 1 mark question!
    C3: I agree it was doable, but some questions were extremely challenging.
    P3: I found that awful! The calculations and equations were A-level standard! E.G. Find the speed of an electron travelling at 23x10 to the power of 23 or something... Ridiculous!

    I'm so glad I only need an E grade in the triple science exams to come out with a B grade in Chemistry and Physics!

    My dad thinks A-Levels are a walk in the park (born in the era of O-Levels.)
    I've got them to agree with me doing Chem, English Lit, Maths (E+ M=influenced by them, but Im fairly good at them)
    They want me to do Biology and possibly Physics
    But I want to do History as I enjoy it- they do not see it as an A-Level worth having as in their opinion it is not respected enough

    It was absolutely ridiculous! Everyone who took that exam came out really disheartened. Hopefully the grade boundaries are in our favour!

    Me too, I need a low grade to do well overall so I hope everything turns out OK

    Good Luck

    Don't, your mind does this to you as you come up to results day, it makes you think you done crap

    And for some reason it reminds you of all the small mistakes you made....
    Happened to me last year as well!

    Terrible feeling! :mad::mad::mad:
