    True, but revising for 8 exams over Christmas wasn't exactly easy.

    i think it's more to do with us starting the term late that the chem teachers thought it would be too hard but yeah whatever erm i haven't really chosen yet, but i'd like to study in london.. i may apply to UCL if i grow some cojones, if not, i'll probably apply to qmul instead. are you thinking of taking UKCAT or BMAT, and where dyou want to apply? hows revision?
    Ah right, probably better to take it once later than have to re-sit I suppose..

    Well it is a bit early to decide anyway
    Haha.. thats the opposite to me.. staying away from london completely, bit too much of a country bumpkin.. and london can be a tad expensive to live in too!

    My top 4 at the moment are Newcastle, Sheffield, Leeds and Birmingham (although thats likely to change! ) so I'll definately be taking the UKCAT and my final choices will be really dependent on that... and looks like I wont have to take the BMAT (the less exams the better.. )

    I'm guessing you're planning on taking the BMAT if you're thinking of UCL?? (although I may be completely wrong.. havent done much research on london unis)

    Revision is going okay, as of yesterday when I started my hardcore revision :cool:
    And hopefully I wont run out of steam before the exams!

    lol i started revision last week, cos we got last week off from school, but last 2 days i haven't been able to revise as much as i hoped, i can't motivate myself to revise physics, it's sooo dull!! :fuhrer: i'm definitely gonna take UKCAT, as the only BMAT university i'd even think of applying to is UCL, which is wishful thinking anyway our school makes us do critical thinking/ gen studies as well for AS as part of our AQA baccalaureate, so if i get below a C in critical thinking, i can't do an EPQ.. probably should have taken my CT books home over the holidays then...

    I'm fluent in terms of writing/listening/speaking, but my reading is so slow - it takes me a long time to process the characters

    So, if I got decent A*'s in W/L/S, and get a B in R, I could potentially still get an A* overall.

    Yeah, but according to my mum, my speaking's very colloquial Gujarati, not traditional/proper Gujarati

    EDIT: Not so far - I'll be sitting Unit 1 this May and Unit 2 next May, but I don't have any revision websites so far - have you tried googling:
