    I could try, but I'm not sure if there'll be enough room this year.

    You already handled the D this year though and looking at your grade you seem to have passed with flying colours. I'm sure that's created more than enough room for further Ds. :teehee:

    Does your school do any Ds Felix?
    They don't force the Ds on anyone but let you take the D if you want to.

    In any case, I've heard that although D1 isn't that difficult, D2 is genuinely hard. Can any one else verify this?
    It's only harder because there aren't as many resources for it (revision guides, GOOD textbooks etc). It's very similar to be fair: it's nothing to worry about if you have an okay teacher.

    What AS grades did you get if you don't mind me asking? I'm looking at some of those unis for chemistry and I want to see my competition
    I got As in Biology, Chemistry and Maths, and As in the Further Maths modules that I did, but I only took two modules for that so haven't done the full AS. How about you? And where else are you looking at? Do you have five in mind?

    Hmm, good question. My D1 teacher was actually the head of dept, but I know from other subjects that the better teacher teachers the harder stuff (eg. exam content), while the other is left to teach stuff like coursework, which is easier to both teach and edit if not up to standard.
    Fair enough. I was lucky to have mostly good teachers this yr . Thinking about it, I may not be able to do my intended subjects next year. I hope my timetable works out!!

    Fair enough. Like how in S1 there's loads of topics and in S2, it's just distribution, afaik?
    Not sure, haven't done most of S2 yet. You know exactly what to do in D2.

    What's the point of doing M5, for non mathmos and physicists?
    Enjoyment if you like Mechanics? But you don't need to go that high you can balance it out with Stats modules

    Good luck. And I know.. But pretty much all of my final answers ageed with a couple of the people in my class who no managed 100UMS each.. Might get my script back..
    I think I'm doing 4 anyway. I'm not sure, really undecided and worrying about it.

    Try Scottish universities where you do three subjects in your first year?

    I've seen joint honours in maths and chem, but I need to see who that's accredited by and that...

    And I'll need to smash some maths modules before I consider any maths at degree level

    That's true. that's true. I'll have to approach my Maths department about the prospect of taking some more Ds this year. It might be a bit of a stretch, but I'm sure I'd make it work. :yep:
