    I've had a few really good maths teachers which I think is the reason I want to go into that field of work as I've seen them make kids actually like maths for once and I feel I could do the same Hahaa

    Yeah I get that, maths is seen as scary for some person and a maths teacher who can help children love maths must be really inspiring.

    Hey guys just a quick one, if my insurance course is currently in the clearing list, does that mean they're more likely to accept me with grades AAB when my offer's AAA, or is that not how it goes?

    Yes, plus you don't get to teach much when you take on a role in school leadership.
    Department heads probably don't get the same stress however.

    Yh true cause half the time you have all these meetings to go to which must get pretty dull cause I bet mostly you're just sitting their listening to their head and I doubt they take into account your own views that much !

    From my time in student leadership that's definitely the case. Our SLT (head + Deputies) didn't listen to staff or student ideas, they acted positive,y to them but nothing would ever be done unless they were planning it anyway.

    Yh true I've reached the point where I've convinced myself alevels are rather pointless when you can just keep retaking forever till you get a good grade
    Yeah, tbh I know I've failed at least one but that's okay because I didn't need it, and I know I probably need to be worried about the others, but this year has taken so much out of me that I just don't have the energy to panic. I s'pose retaking would be an ok option for me though

    I don't know what to think to be honest! It was all going smoothly until my very last exam which felt like a train wreck so that's completely knocked my confidence.

    Like literally my grades could be A*A*A or AAB

    Sorry to interrupt but Yh witfor unit 4ology my teacher basically told everyone it would be classification and diagnosis for sccizophrebia and psychological explainations so she made us write them essays up and spent so long moaning to us how the essays weren't good enough and that she was worried how it could come up so we literally did nothing on bio therapies within class so I'm guessingn a lot of people in my class just wrote pretty generic points eg. Drugs have side effects and are cheap and easy which they'll get limited marks for and I don't think anyone seemed to know any studies for this essay anyways so I really think the grade boundaries for unit 4 should go down a bit like at least 2 marks would be good and then unit 3 will either stay the same or go down like 1 mark
    Wow that's so bad!! Your class must be really annoyed with your teacher then. With us we were well prepared for all of the possible questions, but some people still ignored the biological therapy question/revised it briefly. Tbh I was expecting something on the psychological side but I still revised biological because I knew that they'd done that in the past where 2 of the same 12 markers came up twice in a row.
    But as you said, the grade boundaries should go down for unit 4.
