just a thought I've been having. I've already started revising for my final a-level exams in june, but for some reason I chose all the rediculous subjects that you can't get revision guides for (eg. further maths, anything by WJEC). That got me thinking about making my own, which developed into the idea of a sort of "Open Source" revision website, where users can post revision notes for any subject/level/module they wish. Maybe like Wikipedia, so you can edit them?

What do you think? Will there be enough people wanting to use it for it to float? And is there anywhere you'd recommend for cheap hosting if I were to go ahead with it?

Not: I probably won't go ahead with it, unless there's a *really* good reaction. I just want to see what you think.

Well, here in the US we don't have A-Level exams. I guess the closest thing would be SAT II?
I made this for preparations for the Chemistry SAT II: http://chemistry.stonewallcs.com/ It should get populated by the end of April by the chemistry classes at my school. It would actually be cool to have a wiki style thing for that. Once I finished it (project for school), I think I'm going to modify it to become wiki-style (for my own benefit).

I don't know... It should be relatively simple...

tut, i tried to get one a bit like that going on the college wiki (yes, we did have one) for AS Geology, but no-one was interested. if there was a way of getting the message around varies schools then it might be worth trying.

Well, this started as my chem teacher approaching me on, hypothetically, how one would go about doing somethign similar to this (but have people email me word files and i'd post them manually). And then it evolved into a 150 point test grade and I made that (he will grade people's submissions)

If you want cheap uk hosting www.oenandone.co.uk are pretty good.

As for tips on further maths, just make sure you know every topic backwards and forwards then remember thanks to new labours stupid target settign scheme, they will change the grade system so you will all pass regardless (do you have any idea how low the pass was for pure 2 on the first time AS was done??).

Good idea for the site, you'd have to wean people away from bitesize though, the BBC dont take kindly to competition!

Nope I come from the test generation (we were first to do SATS (at 6 years old!) first to do AS levels, first to start the crazy new secondary school stuff), so I did mine a few years back. But good luck with your results, hope it comes out well for you!
