For people who are predicted 4 A*'s on here: How much content do you have left to learn - if you're doing your exams this summer?

Are you talking about how the content is being taught at school? Because if that's the case it doesn't matter whether the respondents are predicted A*A*A* or EEE. And obviously everyone's going to have to revise things at some point. If your question is, how many topics have I mastered, the answer is probably none.

The further maths course was finished, content-wise, by the end of the spring half-term at my school, having started at the beginning of year 13. With physics we still need to cover two-thirds of the astrophysics module and maybe the very end of the last chapter on nuclear physics. As for history, we've nearly finished both Tudors and Russia but there's still a moderate chunk of civil rights in the USA left.

Yeah although my mocks were A*AA and either A or B in further maths (no grade boundaries). Really the main thing I need to work on for fm is just not running out of time in the papers. Content isn't that much of a problem, but there are things I've forgotten.

WOW! A*AA(A/B) in your mocks!! Well done! You'll definitely get 3/4 A*s in the summer!

That wasn't the impression I got myself but thanks anyway, lol. Good luck to you - don't worry too much about not finishing the content way early, it will at least mean that some topics will be fresh in your mind by the time you go on study leave.

Imperial for physics, so A* required in maths + A*A in any order in further maths and physics. You?

I did, got rejected pre-interview - probably because of the NSAA. I did consider reapplying.

Yeah I'm very happy to have had an offer from there. Imperial was my top choice back when I wanted to do engineering

I had my mocks in late february/early march. They were A-level mocks - the physics paper was just the june 2018 paper, the further maths paper covered the entire course, the only AS part was the Stats & Mechanics paper.

how can they expect you to do a paper on stuff you've not covered, or did you leave those parts out or something?

We had covered it. We finished all of further maths before the half-term, and all the standard content for physics. Single maths we had done all in year 12.
