    Nah, I was keen but I dislike the fact that you have to spend six weeks at the same place so I'm trying to organise my own placements. How about you?
    I don't really see the problem with that, so yeah I'm kind of hopeful for it

    A bit disappointed I won't have someone else doing it to discuss it with now

    Ahh noooo, sorry for the abandonment . Thing is, I still have no bloody idea what I want to do with my life so I'm trying to aim for variety as well as quantity when it comes to work experience. Much though I'd love to spend six weeks at a lab, I'm also trying to do other things. It's a shame that the scheme isn't offered to people finishing year 13, I'd totally do it then if it were.

    Where are you hoping to go?

    No idea, that's why I let them help me :lol:

    If it's actually six weeks I might not be able to do it, I have to go back to see family in Oz at some point

    It might not actually be that much. I haven't checked the page in about a year so don't take that as gospel

    EDIT: Just checked, six weeks is the maximum

    Nuffield Research Placements is a UK-wide scheme giving students a chance to work alongside professional scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians for 4 - 6 weeks over the summer holidays.

    Well that's all the mocks over. C1/C2 paper went by far the best, M1 I managed to miss a whole question on even though I could actually solve it (go me!), Physics was okay...

    However chemistry today I think I spent more time trying to decide where to draw Walter White on the paper than actually answering questions

    Is anyone here going to make a revision timetable or are you just going to do little bits here and there where you feel necessary?

    They're not over yet... I've done my physics, chemistry, economics and c1 mock but I still got c2 and m1 to do next week. Shouldn't be too bad now that the bulk of my mocks are done
    What about you?

    Oh best of luck!

    I finished today! Bio,chem,physics and French AS and A2

    They were all fairly decent considering I did no revision, 4 As, good UMS too hopefully :woo:

    But it's bad because if I do do (lol do do) well, I won't revise in summer either

    Sorry to intrude, but if you can do well now without revision then in theory you won't need to revise in the summer

    You still looking to use the Nuffield Foundation?
    I AM
    you still won't have anyone to discuss it with though because I'm more of a lurker than a contributor to this site but hey ho :rolleyes:
    I am unbelievably excited, I sooo want to do it
    I keep telling people about it so I might get a friend who'll do it as well hahah
    It's actually perfect for me - I love science, I want to do research in the future, I want to learn more about the world around me and plus I don't do that much in the summer anyways :P
    I'll be gutted if I don't get one
