    Well good luck with that then! My offer's 4 As or 3 and an AEA distinction (yuck) so I'm taking all 3 science ones to be on the safe side!! The bio ones are quite funny. One had a comprehension about three toed giant sloths... then had a picture labelled 'three toed giant sloth'... just in case you wondered what that kangeroo was doing there.

    I have similar exams to you, Aired.

    Oop though, excitement - you know the ultra-cool CBBC show Serious Amazon, where they took 8 kids to the jungle? :yy: Well, my little sister got through to the next round for Serious Andes, the next series - she had a phone interview this evening. Granted, 600 people had them but 36,500 entered, so well done her! She finds out if she's one of 120 to get a face-to-face interview on the 16th...

    Tehe, snap. I'm planning on winging it for Physique though as I don't need a grade, and I'd really rather focus on maths.

    My last day too today It was really fun though, we all got shipped off to go paintballing in the morning then the whole goodbyeee shirt-signing thingy this afternoon. I have a very tender bruise on my arm though Paintballs reeeeally hurt.

    I took most of my exams last week (oh, the crazy IB), have two tomorrow morning and one each next thursday and friday... then I'm done. How strange is that? But I'm starting to get a bit tense, I want to know my grades now, because I really don't think I have got what I need... (this is not even modesty - I couldn't answer half of the questions on the maths papers, which I need a good grade in because I need them in all subjects! ARGH) But I do get the results on July 5th, which is cool.

    It was really weird, because only 20 of us finished college when we did, there was no real goodbye thing. Some of us went down the pub, that was about it! So I do feel quite sad that I missed out on all that.

    Hey!! Yes the nice weather is making me lazy...um, lazier. 6 school days left now - woo! Got my little bag for the leavers' ball now so totally prepared. It's a shame the exams have to ruin the atmosphere! Mind you, the bar will be open, so most people will probably forget their own name, never mind that there are such things as exams, so all good.

    9 hours worth of History prelims, followed by a handwritten essay...

    My tip to all A-Levellers is buy a nice pen with an ergonomic grip or something, it soothes the pain a little!
