    But I'll struggle with maths and if you don't get a B minimum then they won't let you do the actual A level. And with Geography well...I DON'T want to go on the field trip and that's the whole reason I am not taking it!!!

    Tips for Geography:
    Well I just repeatedly read over all my notes loads of times!
    I wen to revision classes at school.
    I have a revision guide and a workbook..but the workbook came after I got my results
    Look at the mark schemes for Geography as then you'll know what exactly you have to do (e.g. To get 6 marks out of 6 you need 1 level 1 statement, 1 level 2 statement and 1 level 3 statement and you need to do this TWO TIMES!!!) Have a look and it may become easier for you..it hasn't much for me though!!!
    Hope that helped Bye
    Any tips or resources for English?

    You’re not taking a subject because of a field trip? Are you joking? What’s so bad about the field trip that you’re not taking the subject?
