    I need a B in this exam to get a B over all I am dreading it!
    It's just horrible cuz this exam is pretty much determining whether or not I get into uni haha!

    Which parts of the module are you finding most difficult?
    Aww don't worry, I'm sure the work will pay off! Besides it will all be over in a just over a week! What course have you applied for?

    Genetics mostly. Epistasis/Species/Genetic Drift and all that jazz! It's slowly going in but when I first started revising I felt like I went over one concept and then another one, but then I couldn't remember the first thing I went over. I think getting 'in the flow' of revision and finding what works for you counts for a lot.

    yeah for a B i need 39/150 which is an E haha, but for an A i need 99/150 which is a C, but still dreading this exam... i NEED an A for my course

    just wish i'd done better in my practicals, then the pressure would be almost completely off!
    Hello, fellow Sheffield Firmer

    Similar position then, I guess I'm lucky that General Studies is included in my offer A C seems manageable though Ahhh practicals . . . I completely failed mine in Chemistry last year, bad times! Did you not have the chance to redo it?

    what course have you applied for? and where have you applied for accomodation (if you have yet?)

    i got 33/40 in bio practicals last year, only managed 31/40 this year though. i swear, the experiments my school chose didn't even work! 2 of the evaluatives were on the ecology module too, and i just cbaaaaa with ecology, i always put the wrong answer.
    oh well tho. what have you got in the practicals for bio?
    and what exam board you doing for chem?

    I've applied for Chinese Studies with German. I've applied for Self-Catered at Endcliffe, but to be honest I don't mind if I end up in Ranmoor. How about you?

    I got 36/40 this year. I can't remember last years, it must have been about 30 though. Oh tell me about it. We did one with horse blood that didn't work at all and another one with a capillary tube thing. We ended up redoing both :/

    I actually dropped Chem after AS but I did OCR.

    Aha sorry I have a countdown on my phone to scare me into revising! Chinese and German at Sheffield if all goes to plan!

    Yeahh, the amount of content seems to grow A LOT with each module! I hate that too, seems like every topic people mention is on my 'hate' list! Is chi squared the one for working out whether it is down to chance that the results are different?

    Ah I see sorry!! Divide your mark by 40 and then multiply the answer by 60 and that is the UMS mark x
