    Any chance you can send me the AS past paper tracker please?
    Sure, pm me your email address. The A2 and AS are pretty much the same, the A2 one just has more units and only 3 subjects instead of 3. Just look at what I've done, then make your own. Use conditional formatting (this is explained in my post at the start of this thread)

    Maths, Chemistry and French were edexcel.
    Physics was OCR.

    As long as you're on one of edexcel/AQA/OCR the advice and resources mentioned in my post and in general on TSR are applicable.

    Today was better than I thought (although I only say this because I came late and I forgot my lunch so I dreaded the rest of the morning). We had an assembly, ice breaker session, tour etc but we didn't get our timetables :sigh: AS lessons don't start until Wednesday for me so I can't wait :awesome:

    @richpanda Have you ever missed a day off of school? I have to miss Wednesday for certain reasons, if you've ever done that in sixth form, how did you go about catching up?

    Talk to your teacher asap ask them Wat work was done Wat topics covered. Any work you missed and catch up. You could do this before you miss your day and try to catch up before you get to school or after and catch up during any free time you have.

    Is it a sixth form that is independent (not attached to a secondary school)? I think last year we had 2 days of no lessons then started, so don't get worried or anything.

    Yes I missed one day due to being ill, luckily it was a day where I had French (easy) and Physics (just got teacher to email me some work). That was it, but do make sure you do the classwork and homework.

    You mean you're starting Year 11? I wouldn't worry too much yet, but I won't be able to speak for maths as your spec will be different to mine. They are harder, but also more interesting.

    No, it's attached to a secondary school. Today is my day off!

    In that case, either enjoy your day off or use it to get your folders and other stuff ready if you haven't already done that.
