    I finished my A-levels last year and got a grade lower than i wanted for pretty much every subject... Had always planned on taking a gap-yahh, however now i'm going to be spending my time this year doing a substantial amount of retakes.. One such retake being the Unit 3 Issue report, for which my whole class were deducted marks two years in a row because of our teachers over-marking (mad i know).

    My question is this, i've completed my new Issue report (on whats being done about the HIV/AIDs epidemic ( original... i know... but last year i tried to do a piece on animal cloning being an unviable means of conservation and got only half marks so i'm playing it safe...) and my bibliography could lose me up to 4 points by the looks of it just because i cannot locate a Non web-based source for my piece... last year i had a visit to London Zoo, so i just used one of our lecturers from that visit, but now being that i'm not at sixth form, i don't know what to do, books seem the only option but they're a bit of an annoying and long winded one too because of the many pages and drawn out content... HELP PLEASE!!
