    Just the Human Biology. I'm a mature student so will be starting an Access to HE course in September. One of my university choices requires English, Maths and a Science GCSE or equivalent in addition to the access course. I already did Maths and English last year, so completing the Human Biology this year so that I can meet all the entry requirements.

    How are you enjoying home education, do you know what you want to do after GCSEs? I home educated my son for two years and he really enjoyed it, he's at college now and enjoying it there too.

    It's difficult when you can't compare to others in a class, but I think that has advantages too. Schools tend to do a mock exam which is a past paper that students haven't seen before, so I guess you could do the same and that should give you an idea of what grades you might achieve. It really is just a guide though and students often do better or worse on exam day. Will you be writing your exam at a school/college venue? If you will be, it's good to get a feel of the hall, how it will be laid out etc. Maybe arrange for a visit before exam day so you know what your surroundings will look like as it helps with nerves if you can minimise anything unfamiliar and new. Also make sure you read all the guidelines of what you can and can't do, see-through pencil case, etc.

    how much have you done already? English is easy,the specification that we are going to give has only one comparision in section A. Wection B is either an article/report/speech/talk/letter and section C is the story writing.
