Finishing School

Post  Guest on Wed 08 May 2013, 19:09

I finish next week, Thursday 16th. Even though we've basically got to go back in most days until the middle of June for revision sessions (Apart from Half term).

Anyone finishing school soon? Do you want to finish or would you rather stay on instead of going out there in the big world? Very Happy

I've got 12 exams ~

13/5 - RE
14/5 - Biology 3
17/5 - Spanish listening + reading
20/5 - English Literature
20/5 - Chemistry 3
23/5 - Physics 3
23/5 - English Literature (poetry)
4/6 - English Language
6/6 - Media Studies
17/6 - Maths - Module 3
17/6 - Geography

Glad RE's out of the way first, a lot of revision for that. Not feeling too worried about any bar English which we've barely covered. The Language paper is a forced resit for the whole year group (we did it the first time in January) and I did decently in that so I can't say I care too much for that exam.

Finish school on the 24th May (last day before half term) and only have to go in for exams after that, so that'll be good, can't wait to have the pressure of exams lifted.

(oh this post is all red Surprised Copied it from another forum where I always type in red, didn't expect this to happen here LMAO)

I've been off for a week. I never knew I got distracted so easily! Even so, a lot more useful than having lessons, because I can focus of the things I really need to. My exams start this Monday. I've got…

French Reading & Listening
S1 (A level maths Stats)
English Lit 1
German Reading & Listening
Drama
English Lit 2
Music
C2 (A level maths Core)
English Lang
Biology B7
Chemistry C7
Physics P7

So, 12 or 14 exams for me, depending on whether you count the languages ones as one or two (they are different papers, but sat one after another).

Not looking forward to tomorrow's exams at all. Credit Listening is going to be extremely difficult. I suppose the Reading papers will be okay, because we are allowed a dictionary, and General Listening will be okay because the level of difficulty is not as bad.

I don't even know what an infinite verb is. Laughing I think the only verb group that I know of is 'reflexive'. Razz

The infinitive is the 'root' form of the verb, eg (in English) the infinitive of 'walk' (as in: I walk, you walk, he walks, we walk, they walk) is 'to walk'. In French 'être' is the infinitive of the verb 'to be' - je suis, tu es, il est, nous somme, vous êtes, ils sont. In German, 'sein' is the infinitive of 'to be' - ich bin, du bist, er ist, wir sind, ihr seit, sie sind, Sie sind.
Scary is saying that you will only find infinitives in a dictionary. For example, if you didn't understand 'Je suis un chat' (which would be very unfortunate…) and were stumped on the word 'suis', you would not find it in the dictionary, only 'être'. In many cases, you have to try to decode what the infinitive would be, and this is normally very easy if you're not dealing with irregulars.
Another scenario - you didn't understand 'je cherche un emploi', because of 'cherche', you would recognise that it is in the 'je' form of the verb, and as it ends in an 'e', thus it is probably an '-er' verb. So, you take the 'e' off of the end, add 'er' and look up 'chercher' in the dictionary to find that it means 'to look for'.

I have to say, I wish I was allowed a dictionary in my exam tomorrow! It would make my life so much easier!

Same for me. No more French (yes, I really did use that simley).

My papers were almost the opposite of yours Scary - I think the listening paper created a bloodbath, especially given that we had a double-page spread of (hard!) written translation questions to do that gave you hardly any time to answer them, and subsequently made me get behind on the questions on the following page. Still, the grade boundaries will slip down I reckon and I'm pretty sure I got around 32/40, which should scrape me my A*.
Reading was really straightforward for me, but I can also see some people getting tripped up. I found my self giving a couple of the marks educated guesses, but other than that it was fine, and nothing that much harder than the other papers I've done where I only dropped a few marks.
I guess my CAs will also generate some bonus marks to keep me afloat, should things not go as planned…

Anyway, 1 down, 11 to go!

No more French to study ever again! Very Happy Now I will be burning my French stuff. Will be a good feeling, given my teacher's been nothing but a pest for the past two years. Razz

Got my Biology exams tomorrow, and I really have not revised at all. I don't really need it to get into college, but if I don't get into college and go back to school, I'll need good grades to get into the Int 2 course (one of my choices).

The Body in Action, The Biosphere and Animal Survival are all OK topics that I know roughly enough about. Cells, The World of Plants, Inheritance and Biotechnology though, I know next to nothing about. The latter of the four, I was not in class for, so I am going to bomb these exams. :/

Did my Biology exam today... you know when Teachers say "Oh you don't need to know that, It won't appear in the Exam itself" and then it does? Well that happened.

In other news It's the last day wearing our School Uniform tomorrow, the rest of the days when we come in for Revision we'll be wearing our own clothes.

Lucky that you don't have to wear school uniform anymore. At my school we don't have to wear our jumpers because its the summer.

Did you do B3? I did, but for me it was the opposite, our teacher said there would be loads of questions on global warming/pollution and there wasn't a single one!

Oh I love the subject, it's just our teacher isn't all that good. We just copy out of books. It's no fun so I'm not taking any of it in and learning anything. Razz

Textbook copying is probably one of the most disengaging ways of learning. Our RE teacher basically, every period, gets us to DRAW what she's teaching us, and then we have a discussion about it by throwing a ball around, v v fun. Razz I see your problem, though - it's never good when you like a subject, but get a bad teacher. Sad

Just beaten my second ever A-level exam to the ground. I was really surprised at how well it went! They put a really stinky question at the end of the paper where the solution wasn't obvious, and then, with only a few minutes left I had the eureka moment and got it out Very Happy
