It's now the middle of March and exams are now just two months away! I wanted to find out where you guys were at with your courses.

Have your teachers finished teaching you the content in your course and have you moved on to revision/going back over content that you already have been taught?

If not, how much of the course have you got left to be taught, when do you think you will be finished by?

Do you have any issues with how quickly the content is taught to you? Discuss below!

GCSE:
English: only one poem left to work on, then it'll be done
Biology: done, though because some of the GCSE was covered all the way back in Y9, we're going to go through it again in class
Chemistry: still have to do electrolysis
Physics: done! (but I feel like we rushed parts of the course like astrophysics)
Business: one chapter left (environmental impacts of business)
Music: done, just going through set works now, and theory

A-Levels:
Maths:
- Pure: done, we finished all the way back before Christmas
- Mechanics: done, though I'm really weak at mechanics so definitely going to have to revise lots
- Stats: just finishing off the last couple of chapters in the next couple of weeks

Further Maths:
- Pure: all done, though I'm very shaky on a lot of the content due to not being timetabled for any pure lessons in Y12, so will definitely ask for help on it
- Decision 1: done, very confident (:
- Decision 2: teaching myself the content, and I've got 3 chapters to go but they're pretty short

Computer Science:
- coursework: about halfway through, but it's going to be my main focus this next couple of weeks
- non-coursework: self-teaching, only a few chapters on object-oriented programming left

Honestly, I think most of my teachers have managed time really well, as there is still plenty of time to revise, whilst having still covered the courses in the right amount of depth. Friends at my old school have told me that they're not due to finish most of their teaching until easter, so I feel very lucky.

We've finished all of A-Level Geography.

We've got the last part of the homeostasis topic to do in A-Level Biology.

We need to finish the numerical methods topic and some last parts of integration in A-Level Maths.

For Media Studies we have one unit to get through that will take 2 weeks, however my teacher added everything to Google Classroom meaning if anyone wants to, they can teach themselves the unit at a faster pace/work from home if we have to close. It is the same in ICT, we are on the last unit, but as that is just coursework we do not have to worry about being done in time for the exam.

My friend still does history (I dropped it in January), and they're only starting the Russia unit. Just hope they're done within the little time we have left...

Child's AS exams kick off on 11 May, but they are still quite a bit off finishing the specifications. Biology, especially, is only 80% done.

The teachers have started organising Microsoft Teams teaching just in case the axe falls on school attendance, but it is a bit of a concern that the syllabus hasn't been finished.

I've covered pretty much everything in A level maths and Everything in A level physics. Still, past papers are what my revision consists of...
For A level photography I have nearly finished all my coursework (no formal exams for this course)
