    Ah, fair enough. Nice subjects, there are a lot of scientists on this thread.

    I have Maths and History homework to do. There's not too much, but it's difficult after the long break. Yeah, I've written a first draft of mine but I'll still need to do another soon. Which course is this for?
    To be honest, I'm not completely sure what courses it was written for. It's a mixture of bio, chem and some physics, so it was sort of written for Natural Science course for Cambridge. (I fear I can't live up to the competition for Cambridge). I'm not sure what other courses or universities I'd apply to though..

    All courses seem interesting, but they are all different in some way and I don't want to make a mistake of choosing something that I end up really not liking.

    Blast from the past is an understatement.

    actually don't think it'll be as bad as everyone says ! its different for me as i'm not retaking anything , but the actual A2 exams i reckon will be the same as AS except maybe the content will be more and/or harder to understand. i know this is the case with Maths next year ( not looking forward to C3 and C4 )
    aye I understand you. A lot of the content of the subjects I'm taking for A2 is really mind boggling :confused:. It won't be as bad as everyone is thinking it might be, just have to put in a lot of hard work and dedication from the start I suppose. AND REVISE MORE. I was SO close to failing this year. good luck anyway with maths-I know that its extremely hard.

    yeah, I feel the same! But 2 years till uni sounds quite a while! What are you planning on doing on your gap year?

    I'm just focussing on AS becuase I'm not going to do any of the A2 modules this year. If the Jan exams still existed I might have actually resat a couple full AS subjects! But it does get a bit complicated.
    I might want to get an internship somewhere, work, and go abroad!

    Great plan! :yep: Really hope you do well the second time round

    At AS your UCAS points are half of the same grade at A2 e.g. at AS an A is 60 points whereas at A2 it's 120.

    On the UCAS website there is a tarriff explaining what points equate to what grades http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works.../tariff-tables

    Thankyou
    It's okay

    you wouldn't have to worry about points unless a university specifically states so, normally points are offered from lower ranking universities :yep:

    I'm kind of feeling the same right now.

    What area are you thinking of?
    I want to do biology because I've really enjoyed it this year and would love it study it at a higher level, but at the same time I can't bring myself to stop learning French and would love to live abroad for a year which you can do with a French degree. I could obviously combine them but I'm not sure what career prospects that would give me. :ashamed2:
