    Stats; you need to do past papers!
    The format of questions is very similar paper to paper so just get used to it
    Thanks. I've look at a paper or two, looking for questions on topics that i wave covered. Seems daunting. Also i use a graphics calc do you know if you get the method marks if you just write down the answer? Probs ask the teacher anyways.

    Last thing, in my prev post, i was asking if people think that if I start revising now, is it enough time to get A*AA-AAA? What do you think? My exams are all in June (1 is in May but it's only C1).

    Lmao, I'm proud of myself. First time ever I did all my hw before it was even Friday :woo:

    So had a nice meal last night

    Gonna go for lunch down sisters I think

    Then ****ty school starts again wahay
    lol, homework?

    Most (mediocre like mine) Scottish state schools don't give Advanced Higher students, we barely get any contact time and are just left to our own devices.

    Homework doesn't exist for me anymore.

    I'm at a fairly mediocre state school but we still get treated like children at the sixth form
    Like I got told off for swearing in a corridor once and I'd maybe understand if the sixth form and school were integrated but we have our own separate building.... so I turned around and said "sorry miss I always forget I'm 12"

    See, we don't have sixth form "colleges" the school just encompasses everyone from the ages of 11 - 18. The good thing about this is that we do gain some form of respect from the younger pupils and the teachers the closer we get to leaving, it's mostly because the prefect team have a lot of sway.

    The excuse the teachers give is that leaving us on our own "prepares us for uni", which I think is a cop out way of saying "we can't be bothered teaching you guys."

    Take Physics for example, I get 2 periods (3 periods without) with a teacher - she hasn't taught me a single thing since August. I basically teach myself the syllabus.

    That would suck though, getting treated like a kid. I think a healthy balance of support, respect and independence is needed.

    Yeah I've got loads of Scottish family so I'm very familiar with the education system up there, I very nearly moved up to my dads after gcse to do highers
    Jeez, I mean independent learning is good to become familiar with but I would struggle with that!
    Yeah definitely. It's the only thing I don't like about my sixth form!

    Ah, well you made the right choice! Highers and Advanced Highers are a pain in the toochie.

    Nah, I quite like it. I get a better understanding as I'm not restricted to just lessons. My time is spent just reading random stuff about physics and playing around with experiment equipment.

    This only applies to Maths and Physics, I'm dying in French because I don't get taught anything and I don't know what I should be reading/revising. Ah well, hope I can just scrape a B.

    I feel like A levels are not about learning a subject but about learning what you need to write exactly to gain the marks, and that really annoys me
    I felt like that in french last year </3 such a passion for the language but on paper I'm "mediocre"

    That's true of most standardized exams to be honest, they don't test your capability or level of interest, rather just some arbitrary knowledge you have to put down on an exam.

    It's a horrible feeling. I sailed through all my years of French because I genuinely liked it. Now, I'm being forced to give opinions on Education, Relationships and Immigration - I don't even know the vocab to begin attempting that.

    I did mine last year, but I think you do need to show all the steps to get the marks, have a look at the mark schemes

    Really depends on the kind of student you are, I'd think if you were dedicated enough, you should be able to achieve those grades ( that also depends on your AS grades)
