    Well done! I remember you were dying from stress over economic and maths and it's all turned out great anyways

    And yeah, all 4 to A2, though I'm sort of questioning that decision now.

    My music was only 83%, and I think I may struggle to get an A at A2. And since I'm doing 4 A levels, if I get an offer from Cam it will involve all 4 (most probably). So I'm considering dropping music A2 and going for biology AS. I dunno
    Well...maths didn't...but okay

    Oh right, I see - you sound like you're about as decided as I am! Would Bio at AS give you anything extra to your application anyway? And besides, 83 at AS means you can get 77 at A2, right - you're well capable of that, like I said - genius child!
    Ahh the Cambridge thing is a little tricky - how much of your next years music course is coursework (if any?) cos then if you can make sure that's really really high (which it so would be :p:) then the exam wouldn't be so bad in the summer....

    Well, 210/300 was coursework for AS, and it's not much different for A2.

    But I still only just scraped As for my coursework this year, which is why I was disappointed.

    Maybe it's because we're on a new board and my teacher isn't so used to how they mark it, but I was expecting more.

    And I'm not entirely sure how much the bio AS is applicable to what I wanna do and how it'd affect it, so I don't know.

    Preferably I probably just wanna drop music really, and take only 3 to A2. Except my school won't really let me because I'm doing accelerated maths and dropping it after taking C3/C4 in January.

    BUT then again I really enjoy music because my teacher is jokes

    Oh I see - that's a bit confusing then, really! Your teacher will at least have one year's experience marking cwk this year - probably will have been to more talks by examiners etc (I swear that's all one of my teachers ever does!)

    All I know is nearly all my friends do Bio, and nearly all of them spend their time complaining about how much work there is and how pointless some of it seems! I think the exams are full of those stupid-type questions as well...

    I feel your pain, I only want to do 3 A2's next year as well but I cannot for the life of me figure out what to drop!

    I really can't be bothered to explain, but basically I didn't go and pick them up because I couldn't. Sooooooo they're either still at school or delayed in post. Our mail is always dodgy, comes at odd times :shifty:
