    Hi guys, just wondering how everyone is doing in AS Levels? I'm really concerned about chemistry. I'm doing OCR Salters. The first paper went quite well I think, but I'm just concerned about my coursework: I have 49/60, which is probably not even an A FFS Why do I suck so bad at science practicals?
    Same! I'm worried about Biology!

    I'm going into my Bio exam tomorrow knowing if i dont get an A I probably wont have a chance!

    Good luck anyway

    Biology Unit 2 tomorrow AND Unit 2 Classical Civilisation. Naturally, all my effort has gone to the huge biology exam, and not very much towards Classical Civilisation.

    Don't blame you- Unit 2 is a mammoth of a unit.

    Just remember- if you get asked about an optical microscope and why the sample was cut thin- the answer is to let light penetrate and so only a single layer of cells shows!

    For medicine, do individual module marks matter at A2/AS? Or is just getting an A sufficient regardless of how high/low the A is?
    I heard cambridge do look at the individual mark (80/100, 90/100) etc ... do any other unis do this too?
    if they're really high then your referee can comment on them but majority of unis don't seem very bothered by AS levels. they all look at predicted grades and some shorlist based on gcses. Getting A is definitely sufficient
