I noticed there isn't a forum for this yet, so i thought I'd create one so we can ask each other things that we don't understand or what we think might come up
What maths questions does everyone think will come up this year, as they seem to be asking more maths than usual recently?!

I think you got the dates wrong, it's the 04 and 06.
I am doing the same exams and all the AS exams as I have studied the whole A-level in one year.
If I may, which college do you go to? As far as I know only a few centres teach the subject.

I really dislike when they ask maths questions as I struggle to even do the simplest of maths questions sometimes >.> I think they will probably ask percentage type questions and there is also this formula you use to figure out some data on the Unit 4 on some table... But I've forgotten what that was called now. I'm hoping that this year is different and that the maths is minimal!

The maths isn't that bad, the maths in Biology is a pain.

Haven't started so I can't really say, but I am sure it will be fine, just not looking forward to some of the exam technique for stupid questions.

Unit 4 isnt overly interesting but it seems like a walk in the park, and a welcome change after unit 3 haha!

Hate how close together the exams are though. I like to focus on one unit at a time

Yeah, I am a bit annoyed about that, that means I have only 2 days to revise unit 4 :/

Hi Guys,

I am taking this exam as well. However, I seem to really struggle with not only on the EVS3 but in general the whole of the Environmental Studies exams. I am resitting this exam since I took it last year but did not get the result I needed. At the moment I cannot even seem to get a C for this subject. I can honestly say I did much better in my other exams over the years, even the most difficult ones. But this exams seems to be my worst nightmare. I think my exam technique may be the reason for this. I was hoping if you guys can help me to pass this exam to at least a C. I give up on attaining an A.
