    So now that GCSEs are over and i've had almost a month of no work and fun, I think it's time I get some work done in preparations for AS Levels. So I will post on this thread any work I do just to make sure I'm on top of things and maybe motivate others to get a head start.
    AS LEVELS:
    Biology(OCR)
    Chemistry(OCR)
    Maths (AQA)
    English Lit (Edexcel)

    (I'm aiming to get an A in each of these subjects)

    Don't get me wrong I'm still going to have lots of fun these holidays (I'm going to Paris soon too) but I don't want to fall behind so I'll do little bits of work in between

    I admire your dedication to studying. I did a practice core 1 paper the other day and got an e... It's interesting how much of the content of core 1 links to further maths though.

    I didn't do further maths so I'm probably going to struggle, that's why I'm working extra hard for maths :/

    It's not that hard when you get taught it and get given the notes. It gets to the point when it's basically the same as doing gcse maths because you know what to do.

    Hi, I'm not really doing much biology and chemistry anymore because I know I'll forget it and I'd rather let the teachers go through it. But I'm just doing the homework I got on induction day for those two subjects and my main focus is maths atm
