    FFS lol.....but dnt retakes get put into UCAS or something!....you're soo clever lol..
    Nah, all unis except cambridge only see your predicted grades, so it'll only count against you if you were to retake the entire AS or something..
    Cambridge ask for UMS for each sitting of every exam..
    But with january exams, its much easier to avoid having any resits at all
    And thanks.. lol..

    OK...so next year u at cambridge then?...how hard is maths, i hate it!...on course for an A, no A* :mad:
    yes, if all goes to plan, I will be a cambridge fresher this october
    And maths is honestly quite easy at AS, C1 literally adds a teeny bit onto GCSE and C2 brings some harder, but more interesting concepts..
    The applied modules, either stats or mechanics, take a while to get to grips with.. but as always with maths, practise makes perfect.
    A2 maths is honestly hard.. I've found it harder than chemistry, but different people have different opinions.. Also, my college did teach us 2/3 of the A2 syllabus between september to january.. which made it a tad harder.

    Im in for a rough ride!...especially as i dont enjoy it...i mean im only taking it so that i dnt limit my chances for oxbridge!...it was going to be pyschology!....if i only do AS, wot modules would i do...C1 C2, id then choose stats so S1 S2....is that it?
    AS is just C1, C2 and then S1 if you're going to do stats.
    Oxford are ok with just chem and bio at A2 whereas some cambridge colleges want 3 sciences.. Unless you're doing physics too, in which case, you can afford to drop maths..
    If you drop it anyway, just don't apply to a college that asks for 3 sciences lol

    EDIT: Except you could argue that a brain surgeon DOES work on an inanimate object. My patients will, for the most part, be conscious and in need of reassurance etc
    very good point.

    Kl, hows the seven kings interview?...
    Its not bad, they try and seem harsh, but it doesn't really work..
    It's just them getting to know you, and with an interview, the person is very likely to get an offer.
    Just be relaxed.

    why do dentists have to go to uni for 5 years to learn about the mouth yet doctors learn about the whole body in the same time?

    not having a dig at dentists its just somthing i have no understanding of
    Because a Dentist also learns about the whole body. You do whole body dissections .etc. The course is nye identical for the first few years.
