    Ahhhhhh it's quite scary that it's this close!!
    I'm doing A2 having done AS year twice because of medical reasons
    I take Psychology, Sociology and English Lit and have an E in AS biology (wooooooo!)
    I'm not sure if this is good or not but my exams haven't started and seeing reactions online to ones so far is scaring me a bit (although apparently Edexcel were really nice with the psych resits so I can but hope )
    I'm hoping to go to Chichester to study Psychology and luckily they only want BBB (which is still a lot I guess, but the lowest of all my uni choices!) and I was predicted A*AA but I didn't want to put too much pressure on myself which is why they want lower than I'm hopefully capeable (problems of being a massive perfectionist I guess)!!
    Results day... well anything will be better than my mocks (UUU) so yeah, I'm holding out for it being okay!
    Anything else? Hmmmm, my dream job is to play in a West End orchestra but that's like gold dust so maybe I'll settle for being a counsellor and use my money to go and see lots of shows
    Which exam board for Sociology? Yup I have an E in Bio too haha

    Hey, I do AQA - doing beliefs in society and crime and deviance! How about you? All the best people get either an E or a U in bio

    Hello
    I'm an A2 student
    I'm taking English Literature, History and Media Studies

    Ummmm, there's just so so much to learn! I prefer C&D because of the theories in the first section BUT I fear the 33m for theory and methods might be the death of me! Beliefs is just quite confusing for me, especially science and ideology! How have you found it? I just think that AS was super nice compared to this year

    I'm not looking forward to any of the 33 markers, except if Secularisation comes up in Beliefs and Social Policy for Methods. I need an A for university as well Or a B if I get an A in Psychology (OCR). Yeah AS was so much easier to remember! I don't actually mind Science & Ideology haha but I don't like Globalisation and Postmodernity.

    true true, I think that's the same for me! Secularisation is a good one, at least with beliefs we get a choice of essay! I need a B, but my teacher predicted me an A* so I'm really pushing for at least an A! ah, I do edexcel for psychology and that's also killing me inside globalisation isn't a good one for me either, although I think I might prefer it to science

    Yup my teacher thinks I can get an A* too... ... Yeah Psych is hell but it's actually the subject I'm doing the best in :confused: lol I have no idea how that happened. We'll just have to hope for nice topics in Sociology I guess! :crossedf: Nah I like the science topic, I just get it I guess...

    What course are you going to Chichester for?

    haha that's the same for me, hoping I can get an A in psych!! Yes we will! Apparently the AS resit for unit 2 was really nice, so here's hoping...

    I'm doing psych at uni as well - so every time I tell myself I hate it, I have to remind myself that I also think I'm going to make a career out of it what do you wanna do at uni? (sorry if you've already said this!)

    Doing A2, got ABBB last year! Before results day last year i was HIGHLY convinced that i'd gotten BCCU and was thinking about looking into open unis lol..... it's going to be even more sickening this time round since my firm uni's conditions are AAB and my predicted is AAA. Should've taken that one unconditional i had, would've saved me so much stress :cry:

    I loved Cardiff when I looked around - I was going to do their human and social science course but in the end the lower grades for Chichester won aha, I think I'm quite unusual in that I know exactly what I want to do (none of my friends do) but I really wanna be a clinical psychologist

    Yeah I might have aimed a little high I got ABC at AS though! I used to want to do Forensic Psychology, and then it was Politics, and now I'm floating in the land of I-have-no-bloody-clue
