    Good luck! I'm sure you can get the grade you want. Tell us how the exam went after you done it.

    I'm sooo worried. It's all a matter of luck on the questions ... i'm not too keen on essay questions on experiments, longitudinal studies or social surveys though! lol

    You could actually check the past papers, and predict what topics of the questions would come up for the summer exam. You could do that for your other subjects too.

    It really does depend on luck of questions. I'm just glad that this isn't part of my uni offer so I don't have to do well on it, but its such a waste of time if I don't.

    I don't agree with that method, it's so unpredictable ... i'd rather revise everything thoroughly and be prepared for anything ...

    Ok then. It works with other subjects though. I tried it and it worked. :p: I guess it's different from sociology, as it's mostly case study stuff.

    That won't work.
    Especially if you use the logic of it was there last year won't be there this year.
    In psychology practically the same question was there for 3 years in a row.
    Best thing to do is the work out all the possible questions by reading the sylabus and have model answers for them all.

    In AQA and Edexcel, you could see those the examiners report. It's usually near the end. Go to their website and find out.
    Yeah what's up with OCR? Finding this stuff out is impossible as far as I'm concerned, at least through the website. Annoying because I want to know what my UMS'll be for my computing coursework.

    i ve got an EEEU at the moment.lol. looks like the lowest out overone who's replied so far...it was an AAAB at AS!!

    even still, means i need to get B's in my subjects this year (maths i need 70% in my 3 modules), except chem which requires A's...but then im resitting all my AS modules too! so yes it does lift the pressure like a tinsy wincy bit! but still aiming for the A's all round!
    my grade requirements AABD...hopefully will get that!

    only if my school allowed january exams, wouldve helped a bit i think.

    They do have them, they just don't offer them online. My school have copies, and my next attempt is emailing them.

    I guess we could buy them or ask the teacher for it.

    Ummm well in maths i need a grand total of 9 marks to get an A *smiles and gloats* hehe i know i'm bad!! Biology.... I'm on 383... but i already did my coursework and it was pretty much full marks so let's call it 423... so that must b another B right?? Ummm chem i don't know because my coursework is a whole module and i don't know what it is... but that's nearly full marks too so let's call it 460 and German.... well I already took one exam!! Ummm juts missed the A at AS, and probably scraped one in my interpreting exam so.... 230 + 90 = 320

    That gives me what?? 3 Bs and a C right?
