    She really didn't want me to do it though, she thought it was "risky." She'll be proved right on results day

    My teacher chose the option but I wanted to do something different to I taught it to myself.
    In my school that would never be allowed. I tried with chemistry and I was almost killed by exam officer for even thinking about it. Anyway, I would have to go for lessons teaching the option I would not be taking and wasting my time. Nice that other schools are more flexible.

    You don't really need to learn anything in that much detail for UC, but just the odd terminology and basic theory here and there.

    I bet it did. Which option are you doing then and which is your class doing? (just out of curiosity).

    I'm doing Environmental Biology and my class are doing Mammalian Physiology and Behaviour. I did start off doing MM&P but I absolutely hated it, and as I'm a geographer at heart, Environmental Biology sounded more interesting and looked a lot easier. It would be easy if only the mark schemes were more accurate, as usual! It's pretty boring but straightforward overall, but I get Ds and Es on past papers because they suck.

    I'm doing growth, development and reproduction, and even though some chapters are great, there is too much emphasis on plants. I dream for the day i don't have to learn about another darn plant.

    In half an hour i begin my revision, and i can look forward to revising that also. There are too many, lemme try and test myself here:

    Growth stimulators: gibberellins, auxins, cytokinins
    Growth inhibitors: Ethene, abscisic acid.

    god knows where they come from, and what they do- i cant be arsed to try to remember at this precise moment, its too hot inside :rolleyes:
