    I'm going to start revision soon, as I have 1 AS exam to revise for, 6 A2 exams and 2 GCSE exams. I know we've literally just started back at school but I want to go from DEE to much higher grades. I know I can do it I just need to make sure I have this mindset all year round also I need to make sure I'm on top on any homework and coursework I need to do, as that will definitely help
    I've got 8 A2 exams . Good luck by the way

    In form today my tutor said that universities are more likely to look at your application if you apply early, so you're doing the right thing!!!!!!

    I'm no expert but more about the foundation degree - career briefly, but remember they're reading your PS for that particular course, not the job to potentially come in a few years.

    Pretty much! If all the unis you're applying to have a same common unit, you could briefly say that this has inspired you because ...

    Also make sure your opening is good - nothing cliche or boring

    It's been a long time....ugh having a broken phone sucks. When I get a new phone I'll be more active, as hopefully the App Store has the TSR app! I put my first course down earlier....Nottingham Trent to study Media. It makes me feel sick knowing that this time next year I will be moving/will have moved out!!!

    I am doing 4 A2 levels and I'm getting stressed because I feel like nobody else is in the same position! It really worries me! I know that if I work really hard and put the effort in, it will pay off like it did in my AS year. Anyone else doing 4 full A levels?

    Wow, I don't think anyone I know is carrying on with all 4 A levels!! You'll be fine, as you said the hard work and effort will pay off like at AS
