    I sat the biology and chemistry exams two years ago, there was a lot of stuff on evaluating experiments so you don't really need to know a lot it's more about applying what they having given you

    Same!

    I found the physics the hardest, the others fine, just so frustrating about silly mistakes which I knew the answers too!

    You don't need to worry about not finishing the second section. A lot of people in my year didn't manage to and they still got in for Double Maths.

    Same. I found that the hardest, plus some of the stuff do not even appear in my syllabus. Like earth wire, live wire, etc. Although I knew them, it was upsetting and also the electrostatic smoke precipitator? What the hell was that? What did you put down for that please?
    Chemistry - some questions I did silly mistakes on. I am so pissed at myself.
    Maths - Lovely!
    History - Good

    Oh okay, what questions did you do, if you remembered them?
    And yhh, I talked about that, its like wet scrubbing. But physics element to it too.
    What did you put for the possible occupation you might do in the application form... this goes out to everybody. I put engineering (chemical)
