    for the medicine thingy, ive been told that many unis dont like people doing all science subjects, eg maths, furthermths, chem bio nd physics, it makes them think u cant do anything else. a few of my sisters friends who did these found it difficult to get offers from unis

    Here's an original one, my mate has a Ultraviolet pen, and the ink cant be seen when you write on your arm, but to see it, all you gotta do is press the button on the other end of the pen and scan ur arm

    he didnt actually do this, cuz he's clever enough anyway. On another note, if you hav a grievance in your family during exams you get % added on im sure, anyone know how much it is?

    for your information 'cinderella' some people find gcses hard and just because you don't and you get 100% in every exam, it doesn't mean you should boast about it.
    "Pride comes before the fall" don't let yourself have a fall or a dreaded A may be on the cards.
    If you are so intelligent go and study in your basement for you PhD early.

    btw I think universities like you to do sciences as I know a lot of doctors who are family friends and they say the variation isn't in your school subjects, but what else you do, i.e Duke of Edinburgh

    you get 5% for close family death
    4%for car accident
    3%for recent break (bone)
    2%for old break or pet death
    hope it helps! P.S don't think fish count so don't try it!!

    What about if you've had a death in the family and you're unable to sit any of your exams? Would they be able to accept your mock grades?

    no because it's not an official assessment,
    you would be given the % gain, but would you really fell like doing it?
    I think, just like if you're ill they'll let you do it at another point,
    when you've gotten over it

    Computer Science - maths and physics.

    Don't want to start and argument here but not being able to do GCSES doesn't make cheating okay.

    2%for old break or pet death
    Damn.. my guinea pig did die 4 days before geog paper 1, made no difference anyway

    Its a bit ridiculous though, getting all these extra percentages. Okay, if your parents die then fair enough. But 2-3% for having broken a bone?!?

    Now they care about points, the only degree course that really requires 2 A level subjects is medicine (chem and bio) thats it, you can get into a law degree without anything specific. My sister got into royal holloway to do a science based degree and she had 4 "mickymous" subjects (sociology, german, geography and english lit)
    How are german and english lit mickey mouse subjects?? Especially english lit!! So if you're not taking all sciences you're taking really easy a levels!! Someone good at the sciences would probably fail english lit. And art as well, art isn't an easy a level, the amount of work involved is unbelievable. What an odd attitude, uni's won't accept people who are taking subjects around one area - they'll want a bit of diversity - the sciences aren't any better or harder than the arts.

    i'm not sure whether i should be ashamed or proud of the fact that i've tried, and gotten away with, using almost all of the cheating techniques mentioned in this post in my gcses... but that was two years ago when i was going through my rebellious teenager stage. i wouldn't dare do it for my A levels!

    What they all said! German and Lit are very hard (lit especially) and geog is just as challenging as any other proper gcse.

    I can think of alot more mickey mouse subjects than those... travel and tourism for one (no offence if you do it - but AQA's past papers looks a bit... simple)

    A lot of people seem to think they are, not my words mate. As ive argued so often before, everything requires specific skills, i personally dont think anything is a mickeymouse subject

    It is easy to fake yes. This chav girl in the maths exam gave the invigilator a note saying her dog had died :rolleyes: hmmmmm yeah right, i dont think she even has a dog, just trying to cheat some extra marks on to her maths i reckon. Could be wrong but im pretty sure shes lying.

    If you don't think then you shouldn't say, leave it to those who think it to say. I just had to put straight english lit and german are not mickey mouse, that all.

    One of my mates wrote small notes on the ingredients part of his spring water bottle (which we are allowed to have present with us in the exam) - It was well funny he had important points about poems written on his water bottle... Ingenious!!! of course exam invigilators would never notice But, I wouldn't recommend this as they could randomly pick it up and examine it... But, it is possible to give urself an unfair advantage, sure

    lmao i was thinking about that whilst in there, you could maybe reprint the lable or something? i spent so long just starring at my bottle that it only seemed logical that would be possible to do, id never try it tho, risk is too great!

    I know, there are just so many people you say that the only A levels that are really worth anything are Maths and the sciences, sad i know. It was on the news about how less and less people are choosing maths and sciences, and there is more popularity around the less important subjects like blah blah blah.
