I love your avatar!

GCSE's require more work than A levels if you take the easy subjects like media studies, geography and business.

Just don't pick any of the sciences or maths. :scared:

:lol: The sciences aren't so bad i don't think, well not chemistry or biology. But Maths... :sobbing: scared for life

I thought GCSE's were generally easy, i crammed the night before and got like As. But there was one night that i was trying to cram for an A level exam and i just ended up in tears because there was just no time to get it ALL in. Well... i was cramming for 3 exams that i had the next whole day so...

But either way, best of luck all taking exams. I'm done mine :bounce: My advice is whatever you do, get plenty of rest before the exam. You mind will need a rest, and needs to function well. In exam, manage time well. If you have essays, plan all of them at the start, so that if you end up in a situation where you have half the time to get 2 essays done or something, the plans will help you get the key points down. [Essays and answers with most marks]
You're also less likely to panic and have a breakdown like i've had in an exam or two :lol: I'm really the worst student EVER!!!!

Best of luck all. :)

That depends on the kind of person you are. I had friends who could get 550/600 in maths with their eyes closed but barely scraped C's in biology. Good teachers always make things so much easier too I found - my piss-poor A2 biology teachers cost me (and several others in my class) careers in medicine.

Let me guess.... PE, Media studies, geography, general studies and IT. :p

Aaw :hug: I know what you mean, as soon as AS level was through i couldn't think about medicine anymore. My racist, elitist, sadistic tutor didn't help either :fiery: But if Medicine is what you really want to do, it's not too late. It may take longer, but it's still possible. Following your degree (whatever you do it in), you'll be able to apply to get onto the Medicine course, or sometimes even transfer after a year or two (grades dependent of course). Like Dr. David Malebranche :drool: who got a BA in English, then pursued medicine. But of course he's American. But it's possible. I have friends doing biomedical sciences / Biology hoping for the same.

And :lol: add Art to that list of potential subject :p

Oh i remember the days of GCSE's my motto was ' If its not coursework, don't try'

I did almost no revision for my exams and managged to get all B's and above. My history revision was brill 20mins before the exam i lean't a whole module worth on China. LMAO!

Now A levels i tried a little harder but not hard enough i mucked them up a bit. From what i can remember AS levels are easy BUT a2 is harder. If you work hard enough A's and B's are easy to get.

I had a shite Chem teacher who cost me my uni place. I had to do a foundation year. I had a B at AS but then failed A 2 completely. It might have had something to do with HP5 being released and wimbledon though LOL!

I'm in the middle of my finals in uni. I have 4 exams in 4 days this week. 2 down 2 more to go.

Enjoy GCSE's while you can yes you have a lot of exams but they aren't hard.

May 17th, 2007, 04:17 PM
That is possible. I knew a few people that got full marks in some biology papers. The best that i got was 96/105 in BI2 and 96/100 in statistics.

May 17th, 2007, 05:18 PM
Of course it's possible. I got 104/105 on my BI1 resit, but I find it hard to believe someone who doesn't seem to be able to punctuate properly/make sense when they say they've had full marks in english lit, biol and chem.

My lord what is your problem prose is writing in free flowing speech i.e. like a newspaper article or whatever...i didn't mean did they want me to write in correct english, simply did they want me to write in a style which was uninterrupted by grammatical mistakes (i.e text talk) That was all...so i didn't misuse the word prose...you just misconstrued my meaning that is all....however i see why...your jibe at irish people was pointless...but then again...predictable considering where you are from. :rolleyes:

Is that Gatsby??? The 2nd module with Chaucer and Miller should be more difficult though....1hr and 45 mins to do an essay and then a planned poetry question...ouch...i have been reading over (prose) Chaucer though so it may not be a problem (prose) The death of a salesman is slightly easier though :bounce: (:( :( :devil: The word prose comes from the Latin prosa, meaning straightforward, hence the term "prosaic," which is often seen as pejorative. Prose describes the type of writing that prose embodies, unadorned with obvious stylistic devices. Prose writing is usually adopted for the description of facts or the discussion of whatever one's thoughts are, incorporated in free flowing speech. Thus, it may be used for newspapers, capers, magazines, encyclopedias, broadcast media, films, letters, debtor's notes, famous quotes, murder mystery, history, philosophy, biography, linguistic geography and many other forms of media along with rants on thoughts. It just depends on the school in which one was taught)
