    Fruit juice is always halal I'm trying to revise but I feel like it's not enough fdoisdhauobgfv I'm so scared I won't get the grades. I'll make sure my holidays will be used properly (unlike half term lol) and I'm currently in the process of making summary notes in a small A5 notebook so i can just read it everywhere i go

    good luck to you m8!!

    An A from a C? I'd so love that to happen! That's the problem, I have no idea how competitive the course is because it's only the second year that it's been running for entry

    It's just Psychology that's the problem - if I could somehow get over my mental block with that I'd be absolutely fine.
    oh right
    yeah that's what i'm trying to do - pull chemistry up from a C to an A lol haha don't tell me it's impossible X'D i'm resitting unit 2 though

    just put your heart and soul into psychology, read the textbook like a story and then tell it to someone else like you're spreading rumours/ gossip
    helps me lol

    (note: i don't spread rumours or gossip mkay)

    I will have to get AAA this year and go through ajustment
    :O T_T it's so not fair

    it's fine

    I have NEVER heard that revision method haha

    Yeah I'm retaking my Film Studies exam... I have no idea how to study for that either but as long as I get an A in my coursework this year it shouldn't be too bad. I'm not saying it's impossible, I'm saying it's impossible for me. I already had to retake year 12

    haha try it lol if you're enthusiastic enough and attach emotions to it hopefully it will work

    oh right it's fine there's foundation years there's apprenticeships and even if you retake some of your A2 modules during a gap year you'll be fine

    you won't even need to retake i'm sure they'll take you with AAC cos that's equivalent to ABB technically... ask them

    it'll be okay, your grades aren't even half bad you got ABC!! that's crazy good! i'm sure you can do better and you probably know you can do better too otherwise you wouldn't be stressed/ upset, it's just about doing it.

    in like less than a year you're gonna be doing your dream course at your dream university and you'll look back on this like **** yeah i made it

    you have to start at some point so just start today, pick your psych book up and try to do some open book essays and mark them and then take the book away and try and rewrite the essay as perfectly as you did

    do they have a selection of set questions they'll ask you? because then you can just make some perfect model answers and memorise them :3

    Apprenticeships in Politics? Yeah I guess ABC is a hell of a lot better than the EEUU I got before The only grade I was even a little disappointed was was with the C in Film because I was predicted a B. I was never expecting a B in Psych let alone how close it was to an A and the A in Sociology was literally mindblowing, I still have no idea how I got that.

    Oh gosh, it would be AMAZING to look back and laugh at how silly I must sound right now... see logically I know that but it still doesn't stop me thinking it.

    I'm doing fine in the homework essays, it's just the amount of studies there are! *cries*

    No one I know has ever said this is meant to be the most crucial time in your life lol... That's obviously university as you're in the last 3-4 years of education, potentially ever for most people.

    Also your fourth point might be might right about people worrying, but it's misleading information you're giving out. If one is constantly changing their mind about the course they want to do than the advice given by sensible people is to take a year out and decide, or more time if required getting experience. So yes, you should worry. It's all about the course and you need to be commited doing something you're good at for 3-4 years

    This is all true! Also I'm not sure if they do it for your year but for all the people going into Year 12 from 2016 {me!} your predicted grades really really matter since they're scrapped AS exams. So Oxbridge for instance used to make it's own prediction grades wise and didn't really care about your school's predicted grades but now it's extremely important as excluding GCSEs they are your only formal exam results they have.

    ^anything good in that link?

    Yeah much much better! see you surprised yourself in AS you can do it again in A2! don't let that C get you down, yeah try your best in the coursework and you've got an A to fall back on.

    use this calculator - will help you see clearer :3
    http://umstools.sourceforge.net/demo...tor&target=gce

    yeah memorise those studies like they're stories!
    write a little book of psychology studies - combine them all
    remember them in rude mnemonics or something
    make them interesting, write a song, try to follow the logic of the criminal or something (lol i have no idea what a psych study looks like)

    Well I've found a backup straightaway ~ the one in Somerset looks amazing!!

    Hmmm.... I need 122/200 in A2 to get a B in Psych, and 145/200 to get a B in Film... Psych isn't looking too bad! This has really helped put things into perspective, thank you! Film looks a little harder to get but I am retaking my AS exam so...

    I can't thank you enough

    That revision method also seems very memorable, I'll definitely give it a try! Psych studies are normally: aim, sample, method, findings, conclusions.

    whoop do research it! backup found and after that you can still go and do politics at uni if you wanted :3 (they might even be nice enough to pay off your tuition fees!)

    122/200 that's like 60% come on you can do MUCH better than that!!
    145/200 is 73% come on now - it'll be fine and even better with the retakes!

    hmm they sound like experimental write ups in science
    do try and follow their logic
    like remember the aims mainly of all the studies and then hopefully you can logically follow how you would conduct the research so the method and samples should be fine. Then just the findings so you know the results and you can just draw the conclusion from them!
    so basically all you need to memorise is the aims and the findings mainly! and then for more difficult/ detailed ones memorise the methods etc...

    you'll be alright just make a psychology studies 'bible' - like a little A5 pukka notebook one :3

    and then follow your siblings/ parents around like "did you know this doctor did this just to prove his point that :O"

    i mean it will be interesting so atleast they can engage in conversation with you, imagine my mum's face when i'm trying to explain action potentials in the neurones to her X'D

    EDIT: thanks for the rep

    I have to admit I'm feeling more confident with Psych now, and I've never worried too much about Film. I'm going to go do cue cards for about 5 of the studies and see if I can learn them. I have Aspergers which means I learn best through repetition (a fact I didn't realise until I read an article about 5 days ago).

    I'm actually feeling much better about everything now... thank you so so so much!

    Thankyou so much for that So basically we are in the same boat

    At this point I have stopped caring if I get a U, although it will deeply depress me I would rather get a U in a mock than get a U in my actual coursework....

    Although teacher doesn't understand..so she will probably think I' just an idiot. Oh welllll....

    Lol I said that about half term too, but now I'm serious, I'm planning on using christmas VERY WELL.

    I will be coming back soon to express further frustration
