btw, 12 A*s is pretty impressive.
how did your mod 1's go this jan?
I think I aced teh mods (touch wood)

The 12 A*s were hell. At the time, I really did regret it, and basically had no free time. So the social life suffered.

Indeed I was ready to drop one in winter, when I realised that there was only about 5 months to go to the exams.

I do AQA for Chem, Bio

I think that the GCSEs are actually easier by about 3 times than AS levels. So I would ahve probably got a really bad mark if I did an AS. That said, I know someone who did an A2 maths during their GCSEs. He is I believe doing Further Further Maths A levels. Crazy.

F maths is another 6 modules. And they are only allowed 1 first module eg D1 then the rest have either have to be of at least two level 4 modules. For OCR anyway.
