    OCR is hard for Biology but IMHO, OCR Chemistry is one of the easiest.
    Really? My friend, who is by no means thick, got Ds in both her chem and bio foundation exams. :/

    Before I chose chemistry, quite a lot of people who did their a-levels a few yrs ago warned that chemistry is the hardest science.

    I did OCR biology AS last year and got

    2801: 80/90
    2802: 78/90
    2803: 86/120 <------ I had to declare my UMS marks on my College application for Cambridge. I applied for medicine so was really worried about that mark.

    that was 244/300 (JUST an A)

    I then retook 2803 and got 115/120, and did 2804 in Jan and got 89/90 (THAT was bloody lucky!) I did 2805/5 (Mam.Phys) and 2806 this June. Mam.Phys was extremely tough but very interesting and really useful due to my choice of uni course.

    Chemistry was easily my best subject (Edexcel). I needed something like 20% in my June modules to get an A .


    Just need to get AAA in 12 days and im off to Cambridge. I'm really bricking it!

    Good luck everybody!!!

    I doubt it because:
    1. I hate the teachers, they're rubbish and mean
    2. It looks SO SO SO SO SO hard
    3. I'd probably get a C or something, whereas if i do English i could get an A and As are always better than Cs!

    Well thats subjective depending on your strengths. For me, physics is the hardest, and i quite enjoyed maths. Saying that, for my A levels first time round i got:

    Sociology: B
    Chemistry: E
    Biology: E
    English Lit (AS): C

    Now compared to lots of other people on this here board they're pretty crap. But i was in hospital during sixth form and so i'm proud of myself for even passing them. I've spent the last year doing my Bio/Chem again from scratch with different exam boards at a different college, and i have 2 offers for medicine, but i ended up in hospital during exam period this year so i'll probably miss my offers again!

    Whatever you get in your exams be proud of them. Don't let anyone take away from them be it E's or A's.

    Good Luck everyone

    yeh I did 2804 CC in January and got 90/90 but that was by far the hardest Central concepts paper.

    This June. I've screwed up the unifying conceps paper and the genetics option module I did went quite well.

    Hi, im new to all this forum business so forgive the lack of smiley character things. Im seriously wetting myself about the results. Ive taken AS Level Biology, Chemistry, Maths and History and i fink im borderline for every single one. My two favourite subjects (Chemistry and History) i reckon am borderline A or B but i reckon they will be B's coz the karma just aint good and im a pessamist. Wiv Maths i reckon im borderline B or C and Biology i reckon im borderline B or C but more likely to be a B. Please tell me your predictions, stories, hopes and fears etc coz i just cant sleep. August 19th will be the day that i die!!!!!!!!! Please tell me your prediction especially if they r for AS Level Biology, Chemistry, Maths or History. Cheers!!
    feel the same way...studying maths psychology biology and chem...all i can do now is pray!
    yikes!

    June 2003: Biology: AS

    2801: 72/90
    2802: 72/90
    2803/A: 65/120

    209/300 (1 mark off a B ) But in January I went from a C to an A

    Jan 2004 2803/A retake: 110/120

    Overall UMS: 254/300.

    Although I wish I hadn't taken Biology into A2, I feel like I did so badly because OCR set evil questions

    You, are a bloody hero.

    Seriously, I can't think of anyone who deserves to succeed more than you, not even me - who revised an insane amount!

    I really hope you get what you need. Best wishes for the 19th Sarky!

    Chemistry AS (OCR Salters - sick freak board!)

    Got 74/90 in Jan for Elements of life/developing fuels. - 25%
    Got 43/45 for practical coursework - 14%
    For my open book, I reckon I got B, A if lucky, despite tireless efforts!! mid b would give 11%
    For last exam, might get a B, I really hope so, as its 40%!!! like I said scraping a b gives 28%

    So luck depending ill get about...

    78%

    Oh God, that hurts need an A so i can apply to cambridge for Natsci.

    Physics AS (Salters Horners)

    Coursework was 59/60 - 33%
    PSA1 - Not a nice paper, reckon I got low B, scraped it... - 23%
    PSA 2 - Bit better than first one, but not an A. Mid B for arguments sake... - 25%

    So I should in theory get about...

    81%

    That would be superb... but I am not one with lady luck, so ill continue to expect the worst...

    I dont do biology, but I hope everyone who does sciences does well, including me meh...

    Good luck all.

    Gosh that was very nice of you RobbieC! I've been called a lot of things in my time but never a hero!

    Anyone who has to do Salters (i did that first time round and it drove me crazy) deserves a medal .

    Thanks for making me smile RobbieC

    how did you find the unifying concepts paper? and what option module did you do?
    I got an A (86/90) on Central Concepts in January but unifying concepts was horrible so I really don't want to talk about it My option module was mammalian physiology which I found relatively easy so fingers crossed. I'm not too worried as Biology is the only subject which I'm allowed to fail.
