    Hello all,

    I am a Y12 student and I saw my teacher for Chemistry using a type of software called OCR ExamQuest or something similar. If anyone has this software please can they help me by giving it to me. If not, what other software is there that does the same job.

    N.B This type of software allows you to click on your desired module and you will get real past paper questions based on the chapters in the module.

    Thank you very much!

    I'm planning to! Preferably something related to German or History, maybe even German History What about you?
    I'm still trying to decide. I know I want to do something with literature and history. I was thinking of something like how accurate are the representations of time periods in literature but if I had to choose a time period in history that I'm most interested in, it's the 1920s but we're studying The Great Gatsby in literature and we've been told to do something different than what we're studying in lessons. I'm trying to figure out what I want to do now.

    Economics AS has some multi choice qs in the exam and your teachers prepare you on how to format your essay in order to gain top marks
    The subject is really interesting so far, and the content doesn't look too hard:yep:

    So far in Economics we've done definitions and about 4 lessons on production possibility frontiers (ridiculously easy graphs), there's also focus on current economic news which imo is interesting. There is multiple choice in the first exam and I think the most writing will be done on questions where you evaluate say a business plan, I hate writing as well and all my other options involve numbers

    My school is stingy with target grades, i'll probably get a C xD Or would that show overachieving?

    Ooh, that sounds interesting! Yes, it's generally advised to do something that you're not studying. I may try revert back to GCSE topics but in much greater depth.

    Damnnn I would not like to be doing that.. That'd be horrible haha.

    Yeah, I'm really loving Maths at the moment! Content-wise it's definitely my favourite so far, but class-wise, my German group is so so so so sick. We got given a letter on Monday about a trip to Germany. Me and the three other guys in there are going to have a whale of a time!
    Maths is great! Though it does get much harder, beware. Haha, how did it go with the girls in your class ? Any eye candy? Ooh, whereabouts in Germany are you doing? I think we go to Berlin in February I'm sure you will do!

    Yeah, I've looked over the course... It looks pretty damn hard. But I'm sure it's not as hard once you get taught it.. It just seems daunting because you know nothing about it. I sit next to this girl in Decision... 9/10 will be getting her number. Nahhh they're all really nice! I have only spoken to three of them though... But I'm sure the other 10 are nice too.. One of the boys in my group dropped it so now, including me, there's only 4 boys...

    Ooooooh that'll be good! I think I'm going to Friesenried in July!

    What topic are you doing in maths?
    In Decision I'm doing graph theory... :/

    And in Core I just finished binomial expansion, and (as far as I know) I'm starting completing the square tomorrow.
