    Distinction? I do not think I scrap a merit in chemistry. :/ Although bio was much better.

    You mean practise peapers? Is there any point in appealing? AEA does not give you any advantage in anything so why bother?

    I can understand that. I put 0 effort as I have done no revision and only one past peaper. Anyway is there any point in doing AEA? My teachers tell me that it is a waste of time. You have done 3/4 AEA so can I ask why? Do you think they give some advantage or do you just like streching yourself and sitting difficult exams?

    the questions were like what is the advantage of the sloth having its veins and arteries side by side and why is the relative heart mass of the sloth correted

    For the veins and arteries it was contra current principle, blood gets wormer as it flows so less energy is lost etc. There was very similar question in January unit 4 AQA B bio exam. For the correction of the mass I think it is simply for fair comparisment.

    not sounding arrogant but AEAs are actually challenging and are actually quite interesting to do.

    Advantage? Probably not, I doubt employers will know what AEAs are really. Its just I put in loads of effort into this Chemistry AEA but all that effort has gone to waste. :mad:

    I have found the experience quite interesting too. I am just asking as I am not very familiar with UK school system and all those different qualifications so I was just curious if AEA give some real advantage or are there just for pleasure and amusment of examiners reading my script .

    oh i see. AEAs, if you get them you'd probably look smart but not many unis want AEAs apart from Oxbridge (lots of subjects), Warwick or Bath for maths.

    They wont be amused when looking through my rubbish 50-page booklet loads of stuff crossed out etc. lol.
