    a few days ago we had a 2 census exams i AS chemistry to see if we should carry on

    i got an E and U
    i am not really sure if i should carry on, it has only been 3 weeks though since we started
    one of the teachers already said i can carry on as the calculation part i got right, just not explanations. I think i got mind blank or not enough revision as all my book work is great, homeworks full marks

    do you think i should carrry on with it or just give up now

    I'd say carry on if you feel that you're good enough to do better... I recall taking a similar sort of test about 2 months into AS physics - and I got a U, 8/24. Ended up getting an A at AS and A2.

    I remember getting a U or an E every time I had a mock, mainly because I couldnt be bothered. About 4 weeks before each exam I would cram like made and guess what I ended up with, 3 A's. Its up to you how much you want it. In each A level i retook 5 out of 6 exams for each subject. Its a lot of work but people dont look at that, they just look at the 3 end grades. So just work harder!

    It was about 8 hours a day, I used to scive college because I found the teachers rubbish or just lacked concentration. Anyway they moan at you a hell of a lot, but when they do just make a bet with them and your classmates if they dont believe in you. You have no idea how more committed it will make you when theres money at stake

    Also there is no point if you read what I tell you and then dont work hard. My social life went on hold for 4 weeks, and by the end of it your head hurts and your just up in your dingy old bedroom going over the same stuff. But the end result is well worth it
