I'm happy for you. I could take a leaf out of your book about resilience, huh.

How did you find your AS subjects when you were doing them? They're almost identical to what I'm doing next year, except I'm doing physics instead of biology. And the maths course I'm doing isn't that specific.

Geography was OK. I was just too lazy when it came to remembering facts and figures about case studies, etc. meaning that I couldnt really make good points in my exams.

I was pretty good at Biology. I got a B in the coursework but I got a D in the examination, just because I didn't revise effectively enough.

I think it all worked out well in the end.

It was AS bio and geography, think the specification has changed now. Really cant be bothered to recite what I learnt considering it has been over two years since I was taught it.
