    Anyone else currently failing their way through towards a life of Tesco's checkout points?

    GCSE's been very inconsistent. Dunno what exams I have done well in or not. Torture.

    GSCE's last year for me. AS levels at the moment, got 10 this week. GSCE's were fine because i had about 20 spread over 4 weeks or so. These AS things i've had one one week, one the next, half term, then 10 this week. Though i suppose most of this weeks are only one hour long :$

    A2s here.

    ****ed up AS proper, like most people do.

    So had two pointless Bio resits today (got a B and C), didn't care probably did crap, but don't matter.

    Got Philo resits tomorrow, mega important. My uni application kinda depends on it.

    Got Chem resit on Wednesday, would be nice to improve and is very possible.

    Then I got me A2 exams in 2 weeks time. Which are gonna be fun :(

    I had my Biology As module 2 and 3 today, i was stressing in the exam but i checked afterwards and i only made one or two stupid mistakes. I have chemistry on wednsday as well as my Mussolini History paper retake straight after that, then i don't have anything - just go get mashed every day of the week and still go too school... only because i can. I'm stressing about Chemistry module 3 - anyone taken it - i dont know my dehydration from my elimination.

    I had my Germany history really early - like halfway through may, that helped cause then i had more time to focus on my other stuff. and i got art out of the way at the same time.

    What pisses me off is people who you meet before the exam starts and are like : "Oh yes bruv i just picked ma book up yesterday innit, i dunno ****" when its been plain they've been revising their arse off the past few weeks. Its not a sin, you can admit to it.

    Edit - Dreath, are you doing AQA Chemistry?

    I finished my International Baccalaureate exams on the 19th May! The IB exams are after 2 years of study (like the old A level system) which I prefer. After 2 years you are a lot more "mature" at the subject than at the end of the first year. After 1 year of IB maths I was an absolute nervous wreck for the exam (still got a 7/7 on the mock, but it was a scraped one) but during the exams I felt completely at ease with all the material :)

    However much I enjoy having a laugh at you guys still doing A2's at the mo, best of luck. :)

    But, nothing too hard I presume.

    Haha yea exactly! What did you do for the last question on technological change on the performance of the company? I thought that was a bit vague for a 15 marker :(

    Yeah especially for a unit 3 question. I tended to talk about the positive effects of the change to do with the efficiency of the factory. Then talked about the negative effects it has such as the effect on the workforce, the high costs (especially when not working at full capacity as happened in the last section of the case study).

    I thought the last question on Unit 1 was a bit 'odd'. Was she right to be pleased with her profits? But i just did the good old Profit vs Cash flow argument (H)

    I just did my important Philo resits, went well.

    Have a Chem resit tomorrow, doing OCR Salter s Course.

    It's easy, but I have a bad feeling about Chemistry, I need to do well.

    My A2s are in 2-2 n 1/2 weeks. Paniccing over them now, gotta learn all that stuff in 2 weeks... I did start revising before but still have to learn it all again.
