    Either Spanish (there's just so much to learn) or Physics Unit 1 (there is also lots to learn). Doesn't help that these two are both on the same day, along with Econ Unit 2, though that should be okay. FP1 tomorrow could either go really well or really badly too.
    Good luck. I found P1 significantly easier as the mathematics in P2 is just misleading and there are too many options but only one is correct. Whilst the maths in P1 is pretty easy, especially the calculations around photo-electrons.

    It was paper 1 of Geography (AQA). so many case studies oh good god, I thought GCSE was bad but on this one we had to know both human & physical case studies. I can tell you the fertility rates in Zambia, Uganda, the Gambia, Romania, Thailand, UK, France, I can tell you how many people die annually from smoking and the price of cigarettes in Mauritius, I can tell you how tall High Force waterfall in Yorkshire is and how for long its gorge extends, the value of houses in Happisburgh and the length of waves' fetch, the sea defences in Sandsend, the causes and consequences of the 2010 Pakistan floods, how many first-generation migrants live in California, the population density of Western Finland. On top of that I can also tell you some... proper geography?

    make the case studies stop

    STEP, and also M3. The M3 exam lived up to my expectations; I'm hoping that the STEP exams go a lot better.

    Biology Unit 5 OCR.
    It's the first time I didn't understand the stuff as I was taught it so I pretty much have to start from scratch, but because it's so boring I always put other revisions first

    Hey, just had a look and there are loads of really good notes and mindmaps for AQA research methods on the student room here. (they're free) Hope that helps you get going - good luck!

    Here's a screenshot of a mindmap on structured interviews to give you an idea of what they're like:

    AQA. I did igcse though and I honestly think the reading and listening are easier at AS than they were at GCSE. The writing, however... At least I don't constantly have to be counting words. Guessing you do Spanish too, which board?

    I do AQA too, and yeah its not that hard (tho I've heard people say its the hardest exam board for spanish) though I did aqa gcse and there isn't even a written exam just controlled assesment which doesnt count

    how have you been revising and stuff? I find it kinda difficult to know what to revise or how to revise. I've done some past papers and I've done quite well in those and Ive gona over tenses for the gapfill part. Essays aren't my strong suit especially since all the essays I've done in class we've brainstormed the arguments before hand so not particularly helpful

    Edexcel IGCSE was horrible at the time and so much harder than all the other boards for GCSE, but now I'm glad we did it as it helped so much in terms of being prepared for AS. I've spent quite a lot of time on grammar since there's always that gap fill and the one where you choose the letter of the word to fit the box (hope that makes sense). I've written quite a few essays too and for my oral, I spent a while doing bullet points on basically every topic that could be covered so I'm using those to revise now. In class we spent ages on essays for topics like holidays and friendship which didn't help since if a question came up on those, I just wouldn't choose it.
    I think Spanish is the hardest one to plan revision for, since it's so broad.

    oh the gapfil word one is always the worst... possibly the hardest Q in the paper
    Yeah same, for my oral I made a notebook with points and stuff. When you do essays how do you know... when youve written a good one if that makes sense? i don't do any essay subjects (and this sounds so stupid) so I dont fully get the point of that. is it just to see if you can come up with stuff under timed conditions?
