Welcome to the A level forum!:party2:
This is just a short post to help you get the most out of your visit to TSR today :yes:

Asking Questions
  • Subject specific questions should be posted in subject specific forums. Subject specialists generally hang around in their area rather than the A level forum, so posting in the subject specific forums is likely to bring you a much more detailed, accurate answer. Only questions about A levels or exams in general should be posted in the A level section.
    Enclosed in the spoiler is a collection of links which lead to key subject areas you may wish to ask questions in:
Spoiler:
Show
Maths
English
Biology
Chemistry
Physics
History
Geography
Psychology
Sociology
EPQ
If you have a more specific subject (eg. economics) you wish to post about then look at our complete set of subjects here.
  • Make your title clear. If it is clear what topic within the subject your question is on then it is more likely someone who can answer your question will click on your thread.
  • Be specific in your question, including stating how far you have got in the question if relevant. Attach the question if possible (correctly rotated please!)
  • If you're posting about revision, this revision forum can be used.
  • Revision blogs should be made in the GYG forum.
  • Anything related to university applications should be made in the Applications, clearing and UCAS forum.
  • Questions relating to personal statements should be made in the personal statement forum, while if you want one of TSR's official reviewers to review your personal statement you should post in the private personal statement review forum.


Answering questions
  • When answering, quote or tag in the person you are replying to. This gives them a notification so they know you've responded to them and links them straight to your post to read
  • Try to use simple terminology, unless the question requires more complex terminology. This makes it more likely the user will understand any explanation without your having to explain any further


And of course keep to the community guidelines in all posts!

Can someone please help me? I have sent the link down below where I shared my latest ambiguity but unfortunately haven't gotten a reply as of yet. I hope nobody minds me doing this rather selfish act here. https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4928486

Oh, so that's why I see the 'bump' message every now and then.
Well, thanks for letting me know! Hopefully, it will save my day..

Apart from having nearly 5 hours of chemistry on one day I'd love that... A day off! This is probably better chat for the year 12 thread though, which you can find stickied in the A Level forum right near this one

Hello

I am sitting for Edexcel A2 International Advanced level next june 2018 Economics, can anyone please help me in Unit 4 past papers because I find difficulty in answering both the 15 and 20 mark questions.

Below are the following issues that I hardly need answers for knowledge and understanding:

  • 1) Evaluate the effects of a significant improvement in a country’s terms of trade on the achievement of its macroeconomic objectives. (25 marks)
  • 2) Discuss the likely impact of the rapid growth of emerging and developing economies on world trade patterns.(15 marks)
  • 3) ‘China has specialized in manufacturing while India has specialized in services’


Evaluate the possible benefits of such specialization to a country or countries of your choice (25 marks)





I did a lot of research for these questions but I couldn’t find much sufficient points for my answers.

I wish to get an exemplar answer for the questions above from anyone who like to assist me.



Hope for a quicker response.

Thank you

Pabodha Marambe
Hi this thread isn't really for discussion; we have an economics forum on TSR which might be a better place for your question.

Hello everyone! I want to study A-level in U.K. I have one question on which I didn’t get answer. May I get into the A2-level programme in college without study at AS-level, but with condition of the fact that I have results on the AS-level exam? If you know, please write me.

I'm not quite sure exactly what you're asking?
Do you mean you've sat ASs and want to come to the UK to study the A2 part of the course? If this is the case then it may be possible depending on the school, you'd have to enquire individually.
If you haven't studied the AS course then I doubt you'd be able to just do the A2 year since adapting to a new country will be hard enough and schools would be reluctant to allow it and indeed many would probably refuse.
What subjects are you looking at?

Yes, you have understood me rightly! However if I pass a as-level exam(for example, in specific center in my country) and get well results of this exam, I will have a certification my knowledge of subjects. According to your words, are such factors as adaptation to the country and the fact that English is not my native language can become serious problems, even if I have above the average points on IELTS and results of as exam?
I’m going to study further math, biology, chemistry and physics.
Have you ever heard of this similar case?

If you pass the AS exam then I'd say you have a much higher chance of being accepted just to do A2. The problems would come if you hadn't done the actual AS. Obviously you'd still have to talk to specific schools you are interested in but I doubt they'd be as worried given you have the same qualifications
Not maths :confused: Usually further maths isn't taken without maths...
The fact you do those subjects is good as the content won't change much from different exam boards. If you did history or something then it could have got complicated finding a school covering the same periods etc. But STEM subject should be much easier in that regard

Grade boundaries haven't been set yet so no one knows exactly. You can check on OCR's website what it was last year though
