    After my Biology AS (aka the hardest exam ever, to get a B you needed 50%) my Bio teacher asked me how it went and I just sort of died in front of him.
    It's even worse if you like your teacher and you don't want to disappoint them but...... did you do that thing where you're like "oh well I don't think it went /too/ bad, but, um, you know I'm not an examiner so I could be wrong...
    " (Knowing full well you've probably failed because that's me 😂)

    i was just going to skip college on Thursday but it seems that I now have a history mock that day might just have to leave my phone at home lol
    That's actually a pretty good idea!! The problem is, the suspense would kill me and I'd end up checking my email on the school computers :lol:

    You have to have 3 historical interpretations

    Seriously? iff I were you alfie i'd maybe try starting research now because (for me at least) it's taken a lot of prep time

    Then again that's probably just me procrastinating a lot...

    Seriously you should because the TSR app is the bane of my life 😂 you also can't @ people in app ??? 🙄🙄 (at least you know somewhere you can apply for a job at if Cambridge doesn't come through 😉)
    The app is quite terrible really, but it's a lot faster and uses less data so I don't really have a choice haha

    I'll see if I can hack a rep-function into it after I've sat my exams (though that'd be my most ambitious hack to date :b)

    And I'd consider a part-time job as a programmer actually! Would never do it full-time though

    Oh my coursework was due in last term - super stressful with UCAS as well!!

    God, I hate the A Level reforms sooo much.
    Well if it makes you feel better my coursework is barely off the ground - we only got told to start writing it last week, last term we were just researching all of our sources!

    I think it got lost in the end of the last thread so attempt#2
    What are people's plans for D-day? Cause I'm assuming most of us will be at school when the post arrives 😬
    I am going to open the e-mail when I get home from school so nobody sees my disappointment if it is a rejection it's very convenient that thursday is a short day because I finish at 11.35 and I think the interview e-mail arrived around that time. If it is an offer then I guess I'll celebrate with the family

    When you say 3 interpretations do you mean separate questions or extracts because our college is giving us a list of like 20 different extracts to choose from ourselves because of lack of time (according to the spec it's something they're allowed to do so hopefully we won't be disqualified xD)

    I never knew SS was a possibile STEP condition. I thought at worst it'd be S1 in STEP II and III respectively.

    'Face the dreaded SS'? The members of the French Resistance had to live with the prospect of that for years.

    I just had to pop in a bad joke...

    What are you applying for at the Other place? Maths?

    Good idea!! To be fair people in my school cry quite a lot for some reason so maybe it won't be too embarrassing... I'll just have to wear my waterproof mascara and skip the eyeliner

    Short answer: they weren't we'd finished our history A2 content but went through it so fast none of us really understand it and the others we weren't finished so :L

    I mean the three different sources/historical perspectives

    I don't like how different schools tackle it so differently you know like my school hasn't given us any help/resources at all. But yeah they're allowed to give you extracts Nd stuff so long as there's a wide enough choice that you can choose your own

    I believe it's more common for reapplicants that failed to get their STEP offer the first time round.

    And thus we have proven that the French are better at Maths. Q.E.D.

    Now we have a new thread I think I'm gonna introduce myself
    Applying for Law at Christ's. Kent is my backup and honestly I'd be more than happy to go there, so rejection isn't going to be the end of the world.
    I had surgery on Thursday so I'll be off college on the 12th
    Just wanted to say hi given I've been stalking these threads since November
