    I know what you mean, I got a B but it was supposed to be my definite A! I think it's deffo worth applying still, you've still got a year to improve it. Which exam board did you do?

    It is edexcel which I think is seen as easier than AQA. What about you and where are you looking to apply for btw ?

    Guys, I have dilemma. I've always wanted to study French and Spanish at Edinburgh, I'm just so in love with the city and the vibe. But, my dream course of Modern Languages (French, Spanish and Russian) is at Warwick. I'm really torn between the two, does anyone have any advice?

    personally, i think i'd go for where you feel the best; so if thats the city then i'd go for Edinburgh, at the end of the day you're going to be living there for the next 3 years so you have to feel at home right?

    Edinburgh is nicer...
    And at Warwick, it is only one extra language, in a department they aren't exactly renown for, meanwhile Edinburgh has an amazing reputation, and if you love it there, it feels like the obvious choice to me
    That is just my opinion, though, go where you want to go, where you think is best for you. Do you like Warwick?

    Same! But I'm missing this episode because I'm working, and I think Wednesdays may be my regular shift, so I might always have to watch it on catch-up

    I need to write my EPQ but I'm really losing interest in the chosen topic. Ever since I picked the topic I was so excited to start and then I found out it was heavily research based... I lost interest

    I hope the school lets me drop it because I don't think my essay will be of a good quality because of this - not to mention my production log isn't detailed due to my lack of interest in the topic. I've tried so hard to get on with it but it's just not working out. If they don't let me drop it I wouldn't have done the essay so I'm in such a huge dilema right now!

    I know exactly how you feel! How do you actually fill out the production log though? The EPQ supervisor at my sixth form hasn't given us any other tasks to do except write the essay over summer and it's really annoying me because the level of organisation is piss poor!

    I do like Warwick, and I'm really set on the idea of studying three languages, especially Russian, but I don't like it half as much as I do Edinburgh...

    Just get the production log from the AQA website if you haven't all ready and just fill it in as you go. You're supposed to show progression but my production log shows me just getting bored halfway through and wanting to give up.. here's an extract:

    "After realising that this topic is clearly not a great interest I have decided to cut down a few sections. I will no longer be discussing Roman law".

    I want to drop it so badly. I don't even know if I can reach 5000 words...

    Oh my that's so bad! :O I'll have a look on the AQA website for it and fill it out. If my supervisor doesn't like it she can shove it and I'll say pick the bones out of that one! Mine is on restorative justice and it's effect on reoffending rates but I've hardly spoke about reoffending, most of it is advantages and disadvantages. I'm having the word count problem, I doubt I'll reach the limit but hopefully it's quality and not quantity like most other essay subjects! Why don't you change your question/topic?

    It's too late to change it. It's due first day back and we're submitting it in October I believe - so that way we have a month to do a presentation (I'm not a confident speaker and end up getting severe anxiety yet I'm still being made to do this).

    I guess I'll write half of it and say I lost interest in the topic and then ask to drop it.

    That sounds so *****y of your supervisor. Can't you ask to do the June entry instead then you'll have more time?

    Aren't we technically in year 13, seeing as last year has already finished?

    ANYWAY...

    Have people visited the uni's they would like to go to yet?
    How are your personal statements getting along?
    What subjects are you currently studying and, what do you hope to study at uni (give the 5 uni's you want to go to)
    a) I've visited LSE and Surrey however I've had a recent change of mind and I'm instead thinking about going to Warwick although I think I may still apply to Surrey.
    b) And ahh I'm so happy that I recently finished the first draft of my personal statement so now I can focus on other things
    c) I'm currently studying English Lang & Lit, Sociology and Philosophy (& I'm dropping History at AS!). I want to study Law & Sociology and I'll be applying to Warwick, Edinburgh, Surrey, Sheffield and Liverpool.

    You will be able to drop it. They can't force you to keep it. Even if you have to just forget about it and get a U at the end of it. I know people who dropped out of the May exams this year in April so don't let the sixth form force you to carry it on :P
