    I've not revised AS or the first A2 unit at all. I don't think I'll bother, if I remember it, I remember it, if not, it shouldn't be too many marks dropped, I don't want to overload my brain with stuff when I've only just properly learnt this unit.

    I'm not going to university this year anyway, because I messed up my maths exam today and made it impossible for me to get a B (before people tell me I haven't, I have, I didn't answer enough questions to get the grade I need so, yes, I have missed my AAB offer), so if I really do mess up this exam, it's not the end of the world, because I'm taking a gap year to resit anyway. Takes the pressure off a bit.
    :hugs:

    Sorry to hear that about the maths exam. A gap year will be a fantastic opportunity for you to fulfill your desire to travel, work, volunteer, or whatever takes your fancy! Seriously, I think it will only make the offer that you will inevitably get next time around all the more sweeter.

    I wish you all the best

    Sorry to hear about your Maths exam Just wondering though why (according to your info on the bottom) did you put RVC which is AAA as insurance to Liverpool which was AAB?

    I meant masks right? :P

    & the predict the ratios syllabus point? Is it just learning 9:3:4 for recessive and 12:3:1 for dominant?
    Yea it masks lol.

    Yep for dominant it could also be 13:3 though as well as 12 : 3 : 1
    I'd also be aware that complementary epistasis is 9:7

    Hey, you should have seen me this morning, I cried for a solid 2 hours, I was very melodramatic and kept saying my life is ruined, blah, blah, blah. Part of me still thinks it is, because the admissions process for veterinary is so stressful and difficult, and there's no guarantee I will get another offer. But I'm trying to be realistic now. A gap year, even retaking modules, would be a lovely break and I could finally do the traveling I want to do.

    Edit: What is your offer? And where for?
    My offer? Ah, well, you see...

    I initially applied for dentistry at Liverpool/Leeds, but some time in October of last year had a massive breakdown and decided that I wanted to study English and Communication Studies instead ahehe...

    So, I only have one firm choice, no insurance, to Liverpool Uni. I need AAB, one A being from English language, the other A from Biology.

    I took a haayuuge U-turn :rolleyes:

    Liverpool has always been my favourite, so it was the obvious first choice. I didn't want to full on reject the offer from RVC, because that seemed ridiculous considering how hard it is to only get one offer for Veterinary Science. So, even though I can't actually go there, I had nothing to lose by putting it as my insurance. Also, RVC have been known to accept people with less than the required grades, so it was worth a shot. I know I'll be phoning them both up on results day, begging them to take me :p:

    I would do it, I often do Specimens the day before and I think doing questions and looking at the markschemes are some of the best revision you can do. Its all I've done all day!

    BTW, this is to answer to you as well chuck111

    I'm going to sleep at 10pm maybe 11pm depending on how i feel, I think it's better if I cast a fresh eye over my notes in the morning hence I'm waking up early.

    I think if you stayed up til 2am you'll forget half the stuff you looked at when you were dozing off.
