    That sounds awful. xD Coming from someone who really enjoys maths. I just couldn't do that much! That's really impressive though, best of luck to you!

    I still think doing AS FM would benefit me greatly, but I don't trust my abilities to do that many exams in summer. I think I'd mess something up. If we had Jan exams, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    I'm applying for Chemistry.
    Haha thanks, inspired mainly by DJMayes and his crazy scores :cool:

    Fair enough - it's more risky trying to pile up AS-levels for sure so I have confidence in your choice not to, in general its easier to meet your offer and this year I can only feel my overall grades going up because I'm not forcing myself to do history :woo:

    Nice! Another scientist here I hope you do well this year and get an offer!

    Same. Oh definitely, he was definitely at a high standard for a lot of that match! A real pleasure to watch. Yep, hopefully he can keep form for the next few weeks. Good point :teehee:

    :lol:
    Sorry, fell asleep. :lol: That backhand last night as well, especially when I thought he was going to break back on the last game, flipped dat ****. :coma: It's a shame, he had his chances, just had a drop in concentration on his first game of the third set and gave Nadal a break. :dontknow:

    I'm definitely sure I want to go there, I've always planned to apply there whether it be when I wanted to do vet med/biology/history etc And I've changed my mind about my degree many times which is worrying, yes, but I've only just come across this one and the modules suit my interests so well! And I plan to do a masters in Paleoanthropology afterwards. I'd love to be a Primatologist, Archaeologist (long shot but people get those jobs so why can't I try?), heck even a teacher or lecturer. I know I've rushed into this but I genuinely think I'd be happy

    It is risky, but I think I have a good chance as long as I have a good personal statement etc, and they don't care too much about my stupid dropped AS grade haha As for the degree itself, I know it's a bit unusual and unheard of, but it's only a specialised variation on Anthropology so it's not as unheard of as you may think.

    I'm not too bothered about top ten, I'm probably not clever enough, and I've limited my choices on what I can do as I want a degree with a biological or historical element, and this seems right with only one science at A2 it's hard!

    That sounds great then - you definitely have an invested interest in the degree it seems and won't get bored and drop out as many do. Too many long words haha! but seriously I can see how the specialist degree can help you get there, best of luck!

    Ah it's part of Anthropology - cool, sounds quite interesting from what I can hear

    Nah don't say that! I thought I was so dumb at GCSE but I've obviously turned that around, you'll be clever wherever you go for making mature and intellectual decisions . I can see that as well, I feel outnumbered by my peers who all take science a-levels whilst I'm here with a mixed set of a-levels which would actually be perfect for an economics degree but I'd rather do a maths degree

    Of course it is such a shame, its definitely going to make these next few years harder to cope with when it comes to exam season, and less past papers available

    Ah that's fair enough then, I personally hated it, which was great for me, ah well, you get another year with it I guess

    I understand what you mean, its probably a good idea as well, and if you decide to go for a PHD, then you can actually specialise to your interests which may totally change throughout uni. I'm applying for medicine and chemistry for my fifth option
    Yeah it is luckily you've only got 1 year left, I have 2 but shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    Did you take Maths for AS? I'm wanting to do it at least for AS which is EXACTLY the same course as I have been doing which is great

    :yep: so that's the plan! I'll see how I enjoy and cope with Maths and Politics this coming year then make my decision. To-be doctor then! Sounds good, where are you wanting to apply?

    Seriously, the modules sound amazing! For example; evolution of the human mind, human origins: the deep roots of homo sapiens, the early hominids etc. Plus I can do modules in things like animal behaviour/biodiversity which is what I love, and also take extra biology modules Yeah the words get a bit of a pain

    Yeah you've managed to do so well, it's absolutely amazing so congratulations I've not changed MUCH from GCSE, but I'm aiming for at least A*AA this year, with the A* in history Thank you so much! And your choices are great though, and obviously a maths degree opens up so many options and it's very respected, especially from the universities you're going to apply to!

    When did you start getting feelings for the other place brah?

    Brah its ok, I personally think with your ''the ****'' ums you will blow Cambridge away and your extra maths will certainly impress them enough for a place, but its perfectly fine if you feel Oxford is a more suited maths course. I think your gonna make it wherever you go brah, think of the pokemon society though brah and other things Cambridge will offer.

    Your gonna make it brah

    Okay, so here's a lame attempt to start a conversation for our first year 13 board:

    what exam result of those you received on Thursday are you proudest of? Whether it be a single paper or an overall grade.
    200/200 on geography AS. :woo: Since it's 'my' subject, felt like I needed to do well!

    Oh I know :coma: It was a shame it fell apart like that, but it's definitely a more confident showing than at Wimbledon and the comps afterwards :yep:

    If it's worth anything, Oxford would be my choice if the remark situation works out. :teeth:

    Very interesting - I somewhat wish I continued biology but I heard the A-level becomes a pain, I did enjoy stuff such as mitosis and evolution though!. It definitely sounds like a perfect fit for you

    Thank you . Very impressive targets you have there, I hope you meet them . Indeed it is

    The worst they can do is reject you, they won't come up to your door and punch you, so yeah, nothing to lose by applying there besides, you'd probably surprise yourself
    That's true, I hate rejection though, but if I got the offer from Liverpool I probably wouldn't care Thank you, really appreciate the advice
