    Revision is going well tbh (although at this exact moment history is my main priority )
    how is yours going?
    and well tbh i think it is always better if you make your own notes, you aren't really learning anything if you just look at someone elses plus it took me the vast majority of the year to compile all my notes so don't really want to give them away tbh.
    you still have 2 weeks ish to make some

    same , i am focusing most of my time on maths and physics.

    i understand that you have put alot of time and effort into making your notes, do you mind telling me what you used to make the notes.

    are you also doing the a2 exam this year?

    That is totally understandable :yes: especially considering that maths is next wednesday if i'm right? (don't do it just hear things from other ppl )
    :hugs: and i just use my laptop, i break it down into roughly: woods, plastics and metals and follow the spec on what we need to know for each and expand on each point i only type them because i find it easier to learn text but it is whatever works for you.
    and no just the AS

    Thank god I've found a thread for this, I'm absolutely crapping myself about this exam. I think section C is going to be my weakness so I'm constantly going through past papers to try and get myself familiar with the structure, hope you're revision is going well

    Awww :hugs: i'm glad i found someone else actually doing this exam :lol:
    awhhh hun, try not to worry a lot of the questions are more straightforward than you think and if you can work out a lot of the answers by common sense which is harder to do if you're panicking x
    And yes section C is the worst section :/ however it is where the majority of the marks are along with section B (it works out that even if you didn't do section A, not that i am endorsing that in any way, if you got full marks in B and C you could get an A overall :eek:) so yes i think what you are doing is absolutely correct :yes:
    and you too lovely :hugs:

    I'm thinking section C will be metal based because it was plastic last year. I'm hoping to do well enough to have a good shot at the A* next year so with my A in coursework I think I'll still need a solid A in the exam to have a chance next year
    Is this your first time taking the exam because I know a lot of people tend to resit in yr13?

    I'm year 13 and retaking this exam, I thought last years paper went well but ended up scraping a C and I just went over the paper again a few days ago and I can't see what I did too wrong to just get on a C, however I got an A in CW in year 12 so I got a B overall. I'm really ******** it for this paper because of last year loooool, anyone get any predictions?

    I agree tbh, metals hasn't come up for a while which is annoying as plastic is the easiest
    Same :yes: and i wish you the best of luck possible with it (also to anyone reading this the AS still counts for this course)
    Nope i'm year 12 so first (and hopefully only ) time doing this exam

    And as the poster above says metals looks likely to come up due to the recent absence of metal based questions

    Yeah I know, a lot of people I've been speaking to on the A2 thread have experienced the same thing. Coursework really does save you haha, but I'm hoping I do a lot better this year

    You have a year more experience, so you'll most probably do better. Coursework has been my saviour for the past two years, hopefully it doesn't let me down this year

    Yeah, mine should be an A with 78/90 so if the moderator doesn't change it, I should be okay, what about yours?
