    Has anyone had any experience with writing and asking the college permission to not take some of the exams they had listed on the SAQ? I'm doing a Maths A level and had listed that on top of this I was going to do FP1 and FP2, but know, due to teaching problems (teacher is going to be absent for 7 weeks) and other things I'm doubting this decision.

    These extra two modules don't form part of my offer. Would they be likely to allow me to not sit the exams?

    That's literally 6 a week wtf

    How long are said essays
    Take me around 20 mins each, some more some less. I don't think I'll do 120 because I have to factor in English essays as well so I can't spend my entire time on Econ. I will aim for 40+. I need these A*s maaaaan. It's good prep for Cambridge anyway, expected to do 1-2 huge essays a week of the highest standard :/

    Econ essays aren't really essays compared to those from other subjects - you can fill them with lots of diagrams! I forget about my other subjects sometimes as well - it's quite tempting to do lots more econ than anything else.

    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.
    Need them A*s

    Yeah I'm AQA, did quite well last year Conned the exam board as usual.

    I was going to suggest a thread/group chat with econ offer holders so we could ask each other questions and share revision tips and things. Since we're all no longer competing against each other it may be beneficial to all

    Allow that many exams tho, fm is a pain because I finish the modules and forget them and have to keep going over and over again. Im just hoping I'll peak around exam time.

    Plus sciences have those awful coursework pieces - conned out of a good ums last year because of it

    I did well too - not sure quite how though - I didn't think the exams had gone well at all!

    I agree with you, it would probably be very helpful, although I'm useless with tech/IT, so I wouldn't know how to set up a chat. I've seen a few other econ offer holders around so it sounds good

    Yeah but you don't forget maths, if you understand it properly, you can go into an exam blind and work from first principles ish. Like we've done FP1/2 and M2 now, but hoping I can j go in there and do exams now

    Yeah, but only worth 20%...

    Usually when I ask that question, the answer is some form of xbox. A fellow PS4 user - nice I've gotta give you a game on fifa right?

    If you understand it properly... it normally takes me until near the exam before I feel I understand it well enough.

    Chemistry coursework :mad:- some say it's meant to be easier but I so prefer exams.
