    I'm retaking one bio unit
    And one or two Chem units (dependant on whether I get an offer from my first choice uni or not)
    What about you

    Update:
    I haven't done much studying- because I've been preparing for my medicine interview which is very soon.
    Didn't do much in class today in chemistry I just did an experiment so shouldn't be hard to catch up with
    And psychology wasn't much work either apart from research methods.

    I had a mock interview today- and was told to make sure I smile and maintain good body language.
    I'm going to get my mock exam results soon and will let you all know how I got on.

    Medicine interview on the 29/01/2016 done.
    Now back to work:
    Checklist for today
    - Chemistry F325- make notes and understand Acids, Bases and Buffers, Pka, Ka, ph, Ph calculations, Kw (DONE)


    -Biology F215: Revise and memorise 3 spreads from textbook- on sliding filament theory, plant auxins (DONE)

    - Psychology- Unit 3- Write model answers on Formation, Maintenance and breakdown of relationships - if I have time memorise (INCOMPLETE- only done formation essay not memorised anything- tip: don't underestimate how long it'll take you to write model answers - I gave my self 30 mins for each- that was unrealistic because it's usually 30 mins in an exam when you know and have learnt everything not when you're sitting there thinking how to formulate the perfect answer- took me over an hour for one essay)



    Once done- I will come back and update each task with done/incomplete next to each one.

    Hm, For 24 markers I usually write two theories and for each theory I use 2-3 supporting studies which I also evaluate.
    And near the end of the essay I include a few elaborated IDA points.
