    True... but Maths > Physics for me :dontknow: it's all those wave shenanigans that ruined physics for me :grumble:

    But your course does sound interesting :nutcase:

    Maths > Physics most definitely.

    I just enjoy mechanics. :sogood: At least at A-level, as long as you understood it, you could do next to no revision. :gah:

    Can I ask you guys something? Did anyone get rejected by a university for medicine but were also offered a place to study a course that was allied to medicine/biomedical sciences. If yes, why do medical schools do this? Is it because they feel sorry for us or because they feel as if it wouldn't make us feel as upset if we were offered a full rejection?

    It is because they realise that you are intelligent and probably would be an asset to the university also most people only have one back-up if applying to medicine, this therefore gives you more options personally I think it is more the latter

    This.

    But I wasn't even offered any, which only makes me think they didn't want me anywhere near their university :nothing:

    The mechanics module in physics wasn't even very mathematical. I wanted to hit it. I somehow got 90%+ in both. :ninja: A2 I ****ed up majorly as you know so I won't go there.

    Which board were you with? Because if it was AQA, if you learnt **** all you would've had the same result. I usually did a week or two. I gave up on even that for the summer exams. I do regret it now but what can ya do eh? :getmecoat:

    Haha, that was at summer for me, was on 4B at the end of AS, two of them were pretty low too, did like 5resits for the Jan and had 7A's with 2b's (both a UMS away from an A) plus 100% in physics :smug: irony is i was like coming to lessons over an hour late constantly in A2. Stopped trying in summer.
