    Yh I am aware of my grades in Chem and Bio, but it was due to extenuating circumstances and so I hope they consider it. But, believe you me when I say I've been busy with work experience over the holidays.... I volunteer at a GP, Charity shop and Nursing Home, and I'm applying to apply to a hospital aswell, in which I intend to continue when I'm in sixth form..... Also, I heard that some uni's such as Durham don't look at GCSEs provided that you have a predicted grade of AAA in A level and a high UKCAT score so I'm gonna practice the UKCAT after AS-Level to make sure I get a good grade. It's the same with Plymouth aswell. What are your predicted grades by the way?
    My predicted grades are:
    Maths: A*
    Biology: A
    Chemistry: A*
    Physics: A*
    English lit: A
    English lang: A*
    IGCSE English: A
    Business: A*
    Geography: A*
    Graphics: A*
    French: A

    How did you think the OMM went? I think the first part of the question was about George and Lennie's relationship. The other was about relationships in general throughout the novella. I'm worried because my answer was a bit too generic rather than focused

    Don't worry, this guy in my year relied on the invigilator to give the half way through mark. The guy didn't hear her so he didn't move on to the second section of the Eng Lit paper until 10 mins before the exam ended :0

    Which question did you pick for the AIC? I chose the one about Eva Smith. I chose that after like 15 mins of deciding which question to do /:

    I talked about George and Lennies relationship being like that of father and son (however, now thinking about it, everyone probably put that). I like the pet-master interpretation better. For the second part i just wrote random things about the relationships, not going into specific detail

    It was ok i think. I didn't really have too many points to make about Eva. I basically just blabbed on about vulnerability, responsibility, power and social classes. How did you find it?
