My worst A-level was Maths (got a C, all the others were A or above). I actually did fairly well at AS and got an A in it in year 11, but then come the A2 I'd moved to college where the teacher was awful. I got a D in the A2, including an E in C4, which needless to say dragged my grade down somewhat

It has to be Maths, I genuinely respect anyone who get an A*, A and even B in that subject, I swear it'll be the death of me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although I'm only currently doing my Scottish Highers (equivalent to AS), I can safely say that English has become the bane of my life. So. Many. Critical. Essays. And the mind-numbing tedium that is textual analysis and close reading. The only part of the course I've enjoyed is the creative writing aspect, although you're given minimal opportunity to do that. Also Modern studies (a mix of politics, sociology, etc, but don't be fooled by the name - it's actually a respected subject); so many pesky statistics to remember.

Don't do what I did (Not exactly sure what it was that I did, but yeah.) Haha, just follow the instructions carefully. That's one fo the main things. And make sure you're good with all that how science works nonsense.

Good luck

I'm only halfway through my A2 but last year my weakest was History, so I dropped it. This year, since I'm doing FM as an AS instead, I'm quite worried.

Ahh do you have any idea what didn't go well? So that I don't make the same mistakes , did it affect your overall physics grade much? Sorry for the 21 questions haha

It's okay I think it was just bad preparation. Didn't know what to expect. Didn't use very good skills drawing tables and graphs. Rushed a little too. It did. I mean, I got A's in both theory units, but the D gave me a B overall. I'm just fortunate that it is my fourth a-level :L

Ahh unlucky! :console:, how far off was you from the A mark? It must of been due to a bad teacher because usually they go through a practise one with you. I hate practicals wish it was just theory! But still if a B was in your worst subject then you must of done really good in your other 3

I was 9 marks off I've not done all of my A2's yet so it could all change At the moment Physics is just impossible, but that's only because in AS I relied on Maths rather than understanding. For me I think A2 needs a bit more understanding. (I suppose if I'm thinking about it, ICT was my worst subject aha, a B that I did at school that was 12 marks off an A. But I don't count that :L)

Ahh your making me not look forward to Physics next year , and I've just started to get into the hang of it haha. But I'm sure you'll be fine since your doing double maths which complement physics really well... especially Mechanics!

Eurghh I agree with you on ICT its the worst thing ever, so pointless and meaningless, I put so much work put into a subject in which I didn't even end up with a qualification at the end of it :lol:... thats how bad it is!
