Thanks Sue - I've got dd1 doing A levels and dd2 doing GCSEs. Arghhh!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 12-May-13 21:06:55

A2 not AS - I am feeling v old.

bruffin Sun 12-May-13 22:24:33

Same here Remus. Though older DD worryingly laid back about the whole thing hmm

THanks! Just send DS an encouraging text before his 1st exam ( music so a good start for him) . Then maths ( core 1 I think) this pm

DS started on 30/4 with his music performance. He's got a couple a week till the week after half term too.

Do pass my top tip on. It's not original but always will stand repeating read the instructions and each question at least 2x before diving in. You get no marks for a perfect answer to a different question, and no benefir from answering 4 parts instead of 3 (and 3 parts perfectly of a 4 part q still is only 3/4 of the marks!)

I really feel for those of you with DC doing GCSE and ASs at the same time. The stress levels in your home must be on the hIgh side.

Thanks Sue. DD has Core 1 maths and mechanics this afternoon.

Good advice Thea, I have always told her to read the questions carefully, it is so easy to lose silly marks.

Good luck everyone!

First AS this morning and first GCSE tomorrow, it's really here at last and i just hope they have done enough. Good luck to all!

bruffin Mon 13-May-13 16:30:20

DS really pleased about Core 1 and said philosophy was ok.

mindgone Mon 13-May-13 17:06:57

bruffin, DS1 thought core 1 was fine too, good to know!

bruffin Mon 13-May-13 18:38:27

Ds said there was one question that threw them but they all came up with same answer.

monikar Mon 13-May-13 19:30:37

DD is happy with Core 1 too, what a relief.

BeckAndCall Tue 14-May-13 07:42:03

Another house happy with C1 here. Ws it the reciprocal graph question, Bruffin? Same reaction here, but it's the right answer in the end......

BeckAndCall Tue 14-May-13 07:43:35

And I did wait until after 4.30 am to post that! (Must remember the embargo times for the rest of them too....)

bruffin Tue 14-May-13 09:37:40

Think it maybe that one Beckandcall. Its circle on a graph or something and a lot of work gor 2 marks.

BeckAndCall Tue 14-May-13 10:17:20

Sounds like the one. One things for sure - I couldn't have done it!
