    That coursework though...we needed to make a database, and excel document and I don't know I can barely type up a document on word....

    oh that's great, i wish i was like you who know what path they want to take, I'm like sciences? or humanities? or both, it's a mess.

    ikr, i feel so sorry for whoever is marking it because it must be one heck of a boring job reading all these work that's more or less the same because teachers just tell you what to copy down.

    Well I dunno it's just a path I've wanted to go on for a while or so now, and with medicine it's either you want to or not, I feel there is no grey area...

    ugh our teachers were so annoying they didn't help us at all because it was "controlled coursework" so we just had to plod on like clueless idiots...
    The written exam was easy though, bagged an A* :lol:

    History, geography, maths

    or

    History, geography, biology


    i'm unsure of maths because i find it quite hard, i'm unsure of biology because people say i need atleast 2 sciences for it to be ideal, I would choose another science in place of geography but chem and phy dont interest me/it's too hard.


    I'd go for maths but then Im rubbish at maths I don't know what I do, can't you make uo your own mind or something?

    If you cannot decide between science or humanities, have you considered a cross-faculty subject?

    Something like economics combines all sorts of subjects like maths, geography, politics and history.

    i've always thought i was a science person but then i've leaned towards humanities more (but the essay element of it is not attractive at all lol). cant you do other things with sciences other than med? like those behind the scenes lab and experiments thingy i always see on tv *_*
    me too i got a* in coursework for ICT and a B in exam which got me an A* altogether, so now its just a free lesson :-) how many exams do u have altogether this summer? i only got 11 and im stressing out af

    Go for maths if you're good at it and because you're on TSR I guess you are (everyone is except me and even I think Im lying). And thanks I appreciate you're kindness.

    I do both bio and maths and here's the difference (in my opinion).

    So bio is the easier subject as much more leads on from the GCSE than maths, however it has much more content than maths AND it's now linear so you'd have to do the AS exams again in A2

    Maths is the more difficult subject but there is less content than bio and is modular so your exams in the AS year count towards your final A2

    His is my opinion and conclude what you wish, I think math would be a better choice to go with your subjects but bio would still go well with geography all the same

    The thing is I'm social. I want to meet new people in a hospital, I don't like being behind the scenes. I want to go at the front of the stage. I suppose I could go into research but that just doesn't interest me...Also I regularly hang around my mother's pharmacy which is kinda cool and has influenced me.
    Yuck, essays. After my history coursework which was like 20 pages, I have gone off essays forever.
    I have a free double period with music, I'm just doing a grade 7 performance piece so I'm guaranteed full marks :smug:

    I have 23 I think this summer ^_^
