    Yeah I was gonna say! It sounds like it's better than if they were mixed in aha!

    Yeah I appreicate that - I'm getting quite stressed at the minute - just putting all my time and effort into coursework and ensure thats over by Easter aha!

    Oh nice! I don't have resits, but I'm sitting Core 3/4 for the first time - wasn't clever enough to sit it a year early
    It'll be nice to get to half term and know that the hardest two maths are out of the way!

    Yeah coursework sounds pretty horrible :/

    Considering the amount of people resitting one or both of them from our classes last year (and most people aren't just looking for 3 more UMS like me, they got Ds and below type thing) neither were half of us!

    Oh I'm sure it'll feel good to have them done!

    I do two coursework subjects out of the 4 overall. How stupid of me.
    Woah! That's insane! Well done to you though jajaj

    Definitely!

    Yeah I couldn't stand to do a single coursework subject, exams all the way for me! (EMPAs excepting :| ). Hopefully it all gets done fine soon though

    I wish I could say the same - I screw up EMPAs. Every other coursework is okay but time consuming!

    Thank you!

    Yeah EMPAs are my weak point - if I mess up somewhere it will be there!

    I got 41 last year. Thinking about it now Id be ecstatic with anything higher having done one of the experiments. Got the second (and apparently harder) one tomorrow. I'll need all the luck I can get!

    Thank you! I don't understand why last year's EMPA was so much easier in comparison...

    I guess there's a big step up from AS to A2 EMPA? tbh I was kind of expecting it to be fairly similar this year... wish our teacher would hurry up and get onto the EMPA prep instead of wasting our time :|

    Oh I mean between this year and last year's A2 EMPA! We did last year's A2 EMPA as a mock (June 2014). It was a really nice paper! Nothing like it so far this year...

    We've all got our fingers crossed for that I think! I'm so glad the EMPA doesn't count for as much as the exams.

    Ah I'll still have lab work but I'm not sure you can call Computer Science quite the same

    Yeah I suspect that might be a different sort of lab :P although I think for Physics I have to do some computer lab classes at some stage, programming in C++ or something usually.

    It's pretty cool to create new things from scratch - one of the main reasons that I wanna do the subject at uni
    I can imagine a physics degree is harder though haha!
