    Unfortunately, I only have Tuesday to relax because our college force us to participate in the summer programme, which starts on Wednesday and lasts about 1 month

    My school always goes over the top on these things, 9 days for Geog too when we could have done it in 3. Hmm... can't believe I've got to go back to school and think about bio coursework

    Not for me I'm either doing all 4 or I haven't decided which one to drop yet, so I've got to keep going to all my lessons. Hmph. Only feels like a few weeks ago I did my last piece of bio coursework too :rolleyes:

    Ahh i would have to go to all the lessons but i'm taking the opportunity to drop general studies as soon as possible. I hate biology coursework though - its always the coursework i do worst at. And i found the AS coursework hard so i don't imagine me doing well this time but i'll have to see how it goes.

    It's annoying you never get to find out how well you do in it either, the closest indicator I suppose I'll have is my unit 3 module mark, but I won't know what came from the paper and what came from the coursework.

    Mine was edexcel too, we got a draft though. We did a write up, our teacher checked it and told us what we needed to change, and then we gave in a final copy which was marked as our official mark.

    Ah yes i got a draft - my teacher didn't really want to mark them though. Mainly i failed in the implementing part. Overall i think my mark was 22. I did actually expect an E though.

    Yeh i think the boundaries are quite close together, so a mark or two extra could help considerably.

    Nah i'm sure you didn't get an F! - i got quite a bit of help on the practical part from the teacher which reduced my marks. Will we find out the marks for the coursework on results day or just the whole AS mark?

    I'm not sure, but I think you just get a mark for unit 3 as a whole, which will be half coursework and half the written unit 3 paper, I don't think they'll be separated, though I could be wrong.

    Well that'll be a nice low unit mark for me then!
