    Firm Offer: AAA Sheffield Medicine

    Insurance Offer: BBB Leicester Foundation Med

    Predicted on UCAS: A*A*A*
    Legit predictions: I'd be lucky to get 3Bs
    What I personally aim for: A* in maths, A in Chem and A in Bio

    Exams:

    7th June Edexcel S1: Went alright. I only need to get ~50% on S1 to get an A* so long as I get 90 UMS in C34

    12th June AQA Biology Paper 1: Question 1 was good, but it went downhill very rapidly (Effing AQA )

    13th June AQA Chemistry Paper 1: Overall a decent paper , could've been worse, which is why I am TERRIFIED that Papers 2 and 3 will be horrible )

    19th June AQA Chemistry Paper 2:

    20th June AQA Biology Paper 2:

    20th June Edexcel C3:

    23rd June Edexcel C4:

    26th June AQA Biology Paper 3:

    27th June AQA Chemistry Paper 3:


    Revision plan
    Italics = Finished

    June 16th:
    Finish AS Organic
    Finish up to Genetics, populations, evolution and ecosystems Section in AQA Biology Specification
    Do C3 Solomon Paper B

    Nice. Just noticed for maths you have S1, C3 and C4? Does it mean in year 12 you did m1/d1, c1 and c2?
    Also well done on the c3 mark.
    Have to say I'm more worried about the c4!

    Correct! I took D1 (absolutely hated it aha)
    Thank you! I've done the same c3 paper 4 times this year and I finally got an A* on it!
    I'm worried about the Integration and the Vectors for C4, but I'm putting that out of my mind for now as I have a chemistry exam on Monday and then both C3 and Biology on Tuesday aha. But from Tuesday to Friday I'm doing solid C4!

    Good luck

    Nice AS grades and wow, that's real dedication.
    Most of my c3 revision is done so I think I'm just doing the 4 gold papers and of course 2016 (and maybe 2015) again!
    Yup Integration is the chapter I worry about most too Vectors is not so bad for me as I do mechanics too, so doing diagrams and stuff is what I'm used to doing.
    Goodluck for your tests!
    Yep Tuesday-Friday I'll be doing the same as you. Look forward to it (not!)
    C4 is my last exam though so that makes the struggle worth it

    Thank you, but tbf it was an absolute miracle lmao
    Actually we did the c3 paper as a mock in December and I got a U lol, but I hadn't revised. But I kept on doing the paper (with time in between so that I would forget the answers of course) until I could finally do well enough in it aha

    Aha I cannot stand M1. I liked mechanics in AS Physics, but I tried M1 for a while, and it was horrible aha
    Integration isn't even that bad, I know how to do most of it, I just make the silliest mistakes for no reason and that costs me so many marks

    I'll be doing all the C4 papers over those few days aha
    Not the last exam for me unfortunately Still have Bio3 and Chem3 to do the week after
    Good luck with everything!!
