    At what stage in the learning process is everyone at in their A2 subjects in the minute? It appears my college is significantly behind compared to others, we haven't started UNIT 5 work yet.

    Answers from people studying the sciences and maths would be helpful

    I'm not sure what exam board you're on but I'm a little past halfway in everything at the moment.

    For further maths [we're doing the whole thing this year] we've finished FP1, FP2, S2, M2 and we're nearly halfway through FP3 and near the beginning of D1. For chem we've done unit 4, and a couple of unit 5 chapters. Same for biology.

    For politics we have done maybe 2/3 or 3/4 of the A2 syllabus though it's harder to tell with politics because a lot overlaps and fits into multiples of the topics so... :P For history we have barely covered anything for one half of the course and for the other were are on WW1 of a course that starts from the 1800s and ends at the end of WW2 so probs doing good there. Maths I have no idea. We have done it in a random order, like some of C3 and C4 probably the majority in fact, and we have just started M1 before Christmas - I am a tad worried about timings tbh!

    Thanks everyone! It may be because I'm a Welsh student so I have Jan exams so we are revising for those at the moment rather than learning the next module Want to get things done now though Have you started your coursework/practical module yet?

    Politics – 45% or so through the AS

    Biology – Done all Module 1 (40%) and both course works (10% each). Just started Module 2 So 60% through.

    Chemistry – About 60% through the course, but I feel the hardest is yet to come.

    Maths – Finished C1, half way through C2 with still M1 to do, so around 50/60% too.

    Finished ASes.
    For A2s: 2 modules to go in FM, about 1/4 way through FP3 and 1/7 way through S2. Biol: bit more than a half. Chem: half?

    Wow, someone with the same A levels as me!

    I'm at the same stage as you only I've done most of M1 but no C2 yet.

    You aren't doing your exams with CCEA, are you?

    This seems quite similar to me, except we haven't started unit 5 physics yet

    When our school did A levels they used to aim to get all the way thru the syllabus by Xmas, so that the last term was revision and past papers and stuff. We have small class sizes so I guess that's what makes a big difference. Now we do IB and there is just SOOOOO much work that it will be Easter before we have finished it all. I'm not sure it really matters if you move rapidly thru it and then have revision time, or move through it more slowly and thoroughly first time. I think the thing to remember from now till exam time is that there is no such thing as free time!

    Hopefully you'll have a lot of time spare to revise it!

    You aren't doing your exams with CCEA, are you?
    Funnily enough I am I'm all CCEA except Maths.

    How are you finding our combination? It's a bit strange with one essay subject but I think it's not too bad. I'm not sure which to drop next year, Politics or Maths :/

    It's so weird, everyone I know is doing either all sciences or all essay.

    I am dropping Politics as I want to study Medicine and need all of my other subjects to do so

    Why would you drop Maths, it's so good! What modules are you doing (M1/M2/S1/S2/..)
