    Haha people must love you! I'm assuming that's good??? Do they actually read your tweets etc.???
    They're not personal ones. They're themed. I have space, sea and an architecture one.

    The sea one gained over 1,500 today!

    The names admittedly probably aren't the worst bits

    There are a few useful tricks and mnemonics but something like that will always be a pain.

    Amino acids and the nitrogenous bases aren't so bad because you can learn general strucutres and then learn the specific differences (e.g. Thymine, cytosine and uracil are almost the same things, likewise once you learn the carboxylic acids then you know the related amides for the amino acids). I think the worst thing to learn in biochem is all of the intermediates for krebs' and such.

    Of course the worst thing by far is having absolutely no material whatsoever for reference. I think (some) Universities give out a periodic table for Chemistry and that is pretty much it :lol:

    If you have the BMAT/MAT/HAT/another entry test with a rather silly name (the list of the tests are in the link below) tomorrow, please note that the exams can't be discussed until 5pm on Thursday. See this announcement for more info: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/anno...hp?f=80&a=1360

    Secondly, if you have GCSE resits in Maths or English later this week, the usual rules apply for Edexcel exams. See the link below for more info.

    Aaaaaannnd, if you're doing IB exams, you'll need to wait 24 hours before you can discuss your exams. See here for more information: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/anno...hp?f=38&a=1355

    Thanks, and good luck!

    From GCSE to AS, we were always taught how to simplify fractions. Now at A2 they want us to express them as partial fraction? WHY?

    To be able to integrate it later.
