In the spirit of the GCSE thread lol

Reply below with what you're feeling and perhaps do something like your easiest exam and hardest exam coming up!

I sh*tting myself if I'm honest, the thought of getting bad questions and the amount to revise is massive.

'easiest' exam - C1
'hardest' exam - M1

Not feeling too bad, considering how close we're getting now. Will start revising heavily in the next weeks.

'Hardest' exam - Physics papers

'Easiest' exam - C1 maths

I only have 5 exams this year but the universe has smitten me and 2 of them are on the same day (M1 and Physics) so not looking too forward to that.

Hardest Exam - probably D2 or the chemistry mock paper for predicted grades

How come you guys have Physics papers - I thought all the sciences were linear now?

Physics and more physics... Sounds fun (not). :/ How come you only have 5 exams?

These exams don't contribute to the final A-level; they only contribute to a stand-alone AS qualification but will be used for predicted grades, university applications, etc.

Oooh okay - so some schools make you do the whole AS separately for predicted grades to then repeat all of these exams the next year, or is it just past papers that you do?

You won't repeat the AS exams in the second year. You'll have to do the A-level exams, which assess content from both the AS and A-level years.

Okay I get it - but it'll still be the same content for half of the A Level exams though right?

Not sure about the exact ratios, but there will be content from both years.
