    Urgh, chemistry mock tomorrow, and I'm feeling woefully under-prepared, even though I've done more or less nothing but chemistry since last Tuesday.

    I'm so ****ed in Maths I feel like I understand the content - hell, I feel like the content is incomprehensibly simple, but my test scores don't seem to match up :dontknow: Statistics is a main point of contention for my department head, which is fair enough because I don't get that **** at all :lol:

    What do people think of taking up AS Maths along A2 Chemistry, Biology and History/Psychology?
    Would I be mental having not done any maths for a year? Would the workload be ridiculous?

    I kind of miss maths, but I wasn't naturally AMAZING at it (I got an A* at GCSE with help from a tutor).

    I think of you wanted to do really well youd need to start revising gcse/ learning AS now. Also id hire that tutor again bur in the end its up to you.

    Same man. Worse, actually. I (thought I) used to be good at maths at GCSE. Now, I don't know if it's because of a combo of possibly bad teaching (seems to be working for everyone else) and poor motivation and lack of mathematical ability at this level - but I got a B in my last C1 mock - much to the amusement of my friends. Seriously, how am I ****ing up C1? It doesn't bode well for my overall AS.

    Here I was, thinking I had a chance at Oxford. But now I guess I can forget about that completely.

    Where are you going wrong?

    I'll be brutally honest, C1 is an absolute joke, easier than GCSE in terms of getting higher marks I'd say.

    What about them?

    Do you lose arithmetic marks? Are you able to answer all the questions? Etc

    I think it's just that I feel constantly conscious of the lack of time we have in a lesson. In an actual exam I can just think "w/e m8 let's ****in' go" but in a lesson I'm thinking "50 minutes to food 50 minutes to food not enough to time to write so tired **** this".

    Plus we don't do class tests totally formally, and I'm easily distracted. I seem to do fine on the questions I manage to answer in the short amount of time.
