Yep, you need 480/600 in total from AS and A2.
That's why the teachers keep banging on about working hard in AS and getting high UMS so you have less pressure now.
I wish I'd listened to my teachers, I've got a mountain to climb this year.

I'm really stressed about them. And yeah, I wish I started revising earlier last year, instead of a bit of revision in the couple of weeks leading up, but only proper revision the day before :eek:
Only need to get Ds in maths, Cs in Biol and Physics and B in chem for A's in all, but I'm just getting so nervous, especially considering we have to know basically the whole syllabus!!! So I'm going to start in the Easter hols, write up all of the revision notes and start looking at past papers.
Anyone else doing AQA chem prac? I'm really dreading that! There are so may pracs they could ask us to do!!

Im doing exactly the same subjects as you, i feel quite confident in chem as its just memorization mostly, maths and further maths are doable- just very time consuming.
BUT PHYSICS!!!!!!Its really getting on my nerves, it requires such a lot of understand- but enjoyable nontheless :confused: :mad:

Lol yer im exactly same as you, but maths and further maths im happy to think ill get my A in them

Chemistry is going to be doable after the constant revision and yes same with physics. Time consuming and getting on my nerves but i enjoy it. Hopefully get that B or may sneak in an A.

Nice choices hehe

I'm not feeling too bad....
A bit stressed, but ok!
I would like AAA...which means I have to get Cs (60%) average in my Summer Exams...which takes the pressure off a little! I really want them!!
But I actually need BBB...which means I can get Us (30/20% average) in my summer exams to get into my firm choice! Yey!

physics synoptic is a nightmare... I need a low B this year to get an A.. so hopefully I want to gain as much as possible on unit 4 and 5, so I can drop 50% on synoptic and still get an A.. (if all goes to plan.. :p:).. if not then..... hmm let's not go there..

Unit 4 is pretty easy, unit 5 can be tricky, depending on what paper they decide to give us. Ugh.. synoptic.

However, my physics teacher said that last year, people that got 50/80 in that paper were upgraded to an A, so just hope everyone else goes ****ty;p

Happy that I won't have to touch Biology anymore after June, but sad that school will finish so soon. Also quite worried that I won't be able to get the required grades for uni...
