Hey there, I'm here here so my apologies if someone has already made a topic about this, it's all so new! :confused:

Just wondering if anyone is doing AS Biology [Edexcel] retakes on the 8th January? I'm only doing the one which is Exchange, Transport and Reproduction in the morning and that's it. I never really got on with AS Biology last year but stuck with it (too late to change, dropping it would put me down to 2 AS's and General Studies) and got a U (thanks to an awful mark on this paper last year) so I'm just retaking it now in the hope that I get the 7 extra marks needed to take my total to an E! My other AS results were quite good (for me anyway) with B's in AVCE ICT and General Studies with a C in History (4 marks off a bloody B!).
I dropped Biology at the start of the A2 year and took up an AS in Business Studies and don't regret it at all. Although the E in Biology won't be essential to the Uni courses I want to do it'll just be nice to finally have a grade that counts for something after a year I spent on the subject! *feels stupid*

But yeah, enough with the rambling, I was wondering who else is in the same boat as me (in my case the Titanic) and if there are any good AS Biology revision websites?

Oh, the other good thing about this is that Year 13 study leave is between the 12th - 23rd January and that's the only exam I have (on the 8th) so I get that time off! Well, apart from going to AS Business Studies but still!

people are in similar ships, im in a canoe, but can just about paddle,
there are no good sites i have come accross, it just comes down to getn a stupid txt book and re-writing it in a condensed version,

do u ever have the feeling of pple looking down on you just because u got an E, i am doin retakes this year,
and get kinda ticked off when i get a crap mark, and the nxt guy says,

DAMN!! I ONLY GOT A B!!!

if you are at that grade as i am tryna get out of, u may want to do tactical studying, make sure you know the most common questions, the 8 mark ones, i.e for mod 2 biology, the questions on menstrail cycle etc,

goodluck :-)

I knew someone who cried when they got a B for GCSE History, they were devestated that they didn't get an A* grade. :mad:

Oh I failed the Biology retake again in case you were wondering!
