    Both?
    Sorry - I was college searching...

    I'm looking at:

    Maths: U
    Bio: C
    Comp: B
    Geog: D

    That's me being optimistic... and they ain't actually all that bad but, when you look at my expected A's across the board they're awful...

    Attendance, I think I'm looking at JUST over 60%...

    I'm better off at another college methinks...

    Ugh Maths, can't stand it they tried to persuade me to do it but I just refused. Yeah 60% is a bit bad, they complained mine was low (at 83%) last year... have you taken the AS exams then?

    Yeah I took them, that's what I'm expecting from them...

    They forced me to do maths... well I say forced I mean forcefully persuaded...

    Basically I need to apply to like a MILLION colleges within this next week to be in with a chance!! :p:

    Yeah Im gonna see if I can carry on comp and bio, resit maths (just to try getting at least an E/D [no extra classes or stuff - just revise on ma own] and then taking up Chem and Eng Lit!!

    That'll leave me with two A levels and 4 AS's... can I get into any kind of Uni with that or??

    Ahh I got a B in RE after turning up for 3 / 45 lessons... just wrote down some politically correct garbage, one question asked me to describe a movie which showed inter-racial groups.. and I couldn't think of one so I made one up called 'The Rakers', a group of farm labourers etc... they bought it too :rolleyes:

    Hoping for a B in Maths!! After Paper 1's Fiasco I'm not too sure...

    Hahah I know you can quote something really obscure like "In the old forgotten latin translation of the Bible, it is said that a governing body known soley as 'AQA' will give this paper an A". It is not known to this day what this means. Made up some stuff like that in my French oral for GCSE... "oh yeah, went there, helicopter of course..", my friend said he went to the sunglasses (lunettes, rather than moon (lune) on a rocket :rofl:
