    SHM was in UNIT 4 for me

    Our unit 5 is all electricity, particles (radioactivity and fundamental ****), astronomy and medical physics
    Ah, I'm with Edexcel Physics. Are you with OCR/AQA with Physics?

    We learn electromagnetism in unit 4. Radioactivity is in unit 5 but we have no medical physics at all. Hmmm....

    Career wise, is it better to go for something you'd be good at but not enjoy as much as something you'd love but probably not really be good at?

    You have more scope to develop in something you enjoy and the learning process won't be as tedious as if you disliked it.

    Out of curiosity, what careers are you debating between?

    Law which I know I would enjoy and would be good at vs Teaching which I am starting to develop a real passion for but feel I'd be quite bad at.

    You could always start off in law, do the grind of working at a law firm for a couple years. Then, do a PGCE and move into a more education based role?

    Just know that you're never pigeonholed, there are ways to get into either profession. That said, doing a degree that is varied (law) could potentially lead to more immediate opportunities.

    Have you done any work experience in both settings? If not, it'd be a good idea to do some just to gauge what it's really like working in the two environments.

    I thought someone as mathematical as you would choose the Applied/Turning point option, or is it different for OCR?

    We don't have optional modules

    I know AQA does, but yeah, we just have to study loads of different topics

    What's involved in that?

    You would love it, applied is essentially a lot of mechanics and learning how engines work, and the turning point is using Einstein's Theory of relativity and advancement on electron theory and wave particle duality, etc. Although it sounds all good an interesting, I still chose medical :lol:

    Oh sounds good

    Medical is going to be horrendous

    I'd love a good quantum module though, with high level maths

    I need help for people that are doing Psychology A atm (AQA). Im resitting PSYA1 and doing PSYA3 and PSY4 but my essay marks vary so much (22/24 --> 10/24) depending on the question. I cant seem to fix this and with not much time left until exams, i was wondering if anyone here as tried using Loopa where there are loads of model A* essays which cover all the possible questions they can ask. im good at revising but i kinda wanna see if its worth buying for a unit and if it can drastically change my grade. im currently struggling to get a C atm because my essay evaluation is bad. Thanks. Any help would really be appreciated! :/
