    for my inductions i've gotten AAAE maths chemistry biology and physics. e in physics lol i said in this very forum that i was going to do bad and I did. Oddly enough i'm dropping biology to do further maths
    Congrats on the 3 A's! and as for the Physics, I just had a test today on topics we have covered so far, I think I only got one question right and even then it was a definition Quite a step up from GCSE Physics, oh how I miss the speed time graphs!

    Oh gosh, that must be awful! You poor thing, I congratulate you greatly for getting a Distinction in spite of that.
    Oh lol, I got a pass When they eventually did get us a teacher, she had no clue. I had to go back into school in July {I finished mid-June} to correct some work because luckily another ICT teacher had noticed that she'd made us do the wrong thing -.-

    Sorry for the double post, but I've been contemplating this all day...

    Further maths.

    At my school, it can only be a fifth option {i.e I'd take biology, chemistry, physics, maths, AND further maths, I couldn't drop chemistry and do further maths instead}, not as a fourth. In a few weeks every maths student does a test, and the few with the highest marks will be asked to do it. I'm pretty confident that I'll do well in the test, and my teacher knows that I'm interested. I'm just worried about the workload? I struggled to cope with stress at GCSE, and I don't want to stress myself out before I've even really started, if that makes sense. Would you do it or not if you were in my situation?

    Hey there guys, today In my tutorial lesson I got my prediction of my AS Level Results based upon my
    GCSE Results.

    GCSE Results -> 4a's, 6b's = Minimum: B,B,C,C - Maximum: A,A,A,B.

    Personally, I only need to get B,B,B,B for my Insurance & A,B,B,B for my 1st choice.

    Is it weird that they base AS Level results predictions of your GCSE Results. I mean AS Level your taking the subjects you enjoy & excel at but at GCSE you have so many variables such as subjects your not as passionate in & your taking 9-12+ subjects in most cases?

    That does sound like the best way to do it Shh, at the beginning of Year Ten when I had little idea of what GCSEs would be like, I regarded reading online articles about The Apprentice and e-mailing my friend who was sat next to me as very important
    Of course E-mailing was a big part of lessons for me, there's just something about e-mailing in lessons that's fun because how often do you use e-mail to contacts your friends at home? XD We started our OCN IT course in year 9 :O So that's probably why I had a lot of time to spare.

    Personally I wouldn't, unless I was a) so good at maths I'd already covered half the A-level syllabus by myself, or b) planning on a career directly related to maths. I'm sure you're very capable, but to be quite honest, unless you absolutely need the fifth AS to get onto the course you want to study at uni (i.e. you plan to study maths), it's going to be a lot of extra work for no real reason. No university will ever expect (or even particularly want) 5 AS levels, and there's also the problem that your grades in your other subjects could slip...

    If it's anything like ours was, it will be paaaaaaainful and also if anyone in your group even slightly annoys you, you will probably want to kill them by the end of it
    make sure you interrogate everyone in your group on the state of their ankles because we had one girl with dodgy ankles and she lagged behind the whole time, and making the rest of the group keep to her pace was a struggle.. bring supports and bandages
    also boil in the bag rice will most likely become your favourite food
    and mine was only a silver expedition so gold will be awful
    (i'm still planning on doing gold though because apparently i am mental)

    Got a (very) borderline A in my first S1 exam! :^_^: I only dropped 5 marks overall, but it was out of 30, so each mark made a massive difference. I'm pretty happy with that, given that the class average was a low B, and I know exactly where I went wrong - it was just a silly mistake in rounding, which I carried forward throughout the calculations.
