    I've got an econ offer and am doing french a-level and I can tell you there's nothing more exciting than the french economy

    One thing I am missing is an essay subject - might be a bit of a jump between gcse and uni essay writing -probably a good idea to do english

    Haha - it's alright I guess .

    I wish I'd taken history because I was good enough at it at GCSE and it would have helped with econ essay writing(I wasn't that good at English but still enjoyed it )

    I hope so - being surrounded by so many intelligent people, students and supervisors, will help loads I imagine

    I know it will improve as I read something on Kings' website that said a girl handed an essay in for her first supervision and got it handed back covered in red ink. I'm sure we will get the message!

    We will do economic history modules at Cambridge so that history component will still be there. I love history but I wouldn't want to do it for an A Level. They teach you how to become a historian which really takes away from the learning process. You could be very knowledgable in an area of history but if you don't write about it they way they want to you wont do very well.

    I did GCSE history too! The only reason why I did well was due to the fact that I love the game Red Dead Redemption and so it rekindled my interest in the American West module haha

    I've read that too- there is hope after all!

    Yeah I'm looking forward to that module for sure, in fact I think I'm looking forward to it all(provided I achieve the offer conditions). I guess there's a difference between being interested and doing the exams, probably for a lot of subjects.

    Yeah GCSE history. Video Games and history are an awesome combination - that's why I love the Assassins creed games, although we never studied the covered periods in school. We did the inter-war period which others said was boring but I found it really interesting with all the economics and politics involved

    Ahhhhh don't get me started, AC is my favourite franchise of all time. I get all nostalgic when thinking of the italian ACs.

    I am working like mad at the moment, my offer is A*AA with the A* in anything but I can't relax on that. What was your offer btw? and what college?

    Really want to just skip the latter half of this school year and start uni now.

    Agreed on AC series

    Serious work is starting this week for me. My offer's A*AA too from Selwyn - what college is your offer from? Good luck in achieving it

    Yeah it feels like a huge amount of time from now to beginning uni! Just got to get those grades in the exams now.

    Is your A* in any subject?

    I've got an offer from Emmanuel

    I normally do my revision in blocks, I've finished my A2 Economics as well as C3 and C4. Need to focus on english really. I think I will just try and go for 3 A*s and hope I get one!

    I have like 20 weeks to do 120 Economics essays in practise. Maybe doable haha

    Yeah in any subject but maths. Emmanuel looks awesome so well done!

    I know I need to get started on some serious revision. I'm trying for all A*s too, in the hope that I get one!

    What's your exam board? I do AQA econ and last I did all the past paper questions, so I probably will have to do a similar amount of econ essays. Doable depends on your essay writing speed - but I'm sure your english essays are harder and longer than the econ essays so you'll be able to do it.

    2-3 pages for me- take about 40 mins each so not awful. 120 essays sounds like a lot, but hopefully it will be worth it, especially if you enjoy the essays
