its going ok but have been off the last couple of days so missed quite a bit (its amazing how much work gets done in 3 periods!)

24/30 is nothing to be ashamed of...i got something similar in the unit one nab

anyway, can i ask you nicely to type the words out fully....its not a text message!...thanks,

nathan

Just to let you know with 24/30 in the nab you are right on target for an A, I got 25 or 26 in all the nabs and got an A! You should have no problem!! smile.gif

Yeah, I wouldn't say that getting 24/30 is a bad mark. More, the opposite.

Well remember that the NAB isn't an indication for the final exam. Personally, I don't bother revising for my NABs, I don't really see the point, I don't really see them as very serious. 24/30 is a good mark though, but the main thing is that you can look over what you got wrong and be confident that you could get full marks (or near enough) if you took another NAB. I think your teacher was just being spiteful in saying that was a crap mark, it really isn't.

Anyway, on the thread topic, it's going well for me. We've got different teachers for different days of the week and stuff so I don't think the lessons are very productive but I still think I'm doing well with the course. I got 29/30 on the last NAB, but I try not to go by NAB marks. I'll probably be able to judge better after the prelim at the end of the month.

firstly, cool name, although at first i thought it was the name of the fourth stomach of the cow(abomasum) dont no why just kinda looked like that. Dont think the teacher appreciates the fact we cant learn by filling in the blanks!

we get two teachers but we only get one of them on a monday, and she is the best one, which is crap because we would all get A's if we got her all the time.

I just panic with chemistry because i need an A!!!!

if you are worried why don't you ask the good teacher for extra lunchtime lessons or after school, I'm sure she would be willing if she has free time!! if that's not possible my advice is to do every past paper you can get your hands on, last year my teacher gave me past papers from 1990 to 2004!! lots of the questions are repeated!!
