R.S - Edexcel Short Course is so easy! A little bit of weekend revision should hopefully guarantee me a 7 considering barely anyone seems to revise and apparently schools taught to the wrong topic for Peace and Conflict (Paper 2)

Chemistry - I want to do this at A Level but I am really worried about how hard the paper will be especially paper 2. That has so much harder stuff to it, but at least global warming should balance the fear out (I do global warming in so many subjects).

Business - On mock tests done in class I can comfortably get 90%+, it's pretty easy for me and 99% is just common sense. (to me.)

Maths/ Italian- on recent mocks I scraped 5's and NEED a 6/7 in the real exam.

Perhaps everyone can help each other with the subjects? If someones good at maths and mfl, help me and if anyone needs help with any of these subjects, feel free to ask me anything:

Business
History
Sociology
English Lang
English Lit
RS

Why did they put all of the harder topics of science in paper 2?!

I'm in the exact same situation. Maths and FM are nowhere near as hard as other subjects - notably, English. Regardless, both teachers expect a 9.

It's at my school's sixth form. All I need to study maths, further maths, physics and computer science are:
7 in maths, 6 in English Language, Physics and Computer Science.
They're quite low so I can realistically just barely pass my GCSEs and still get it (though realistically I'll aim for more 9s and 8s, just not in English )

I get you that's why I realistically will aim for 9s. But seriously the English Department in my school pisses me off. And to be fair most workplaces only ask for GCSEs as a formality. For where I want to go they'll care more about the A-levels and degree.
