    Yeah, I feel awful thinking about how well off our school is comapred to most others as we have 3 AH Maths classes and 2 AH Physics classes (with about 20 students in each).

    We just finished Further Differential Equations today and it was easier than I thought...
    So now we only got Sequence and Series and more proofs and thats the Maths course complete
    Wow, I thought my school was about as any state schools(if I got confused and you're private, nevermind!), and we had about 20 in AH physics, and 2 classes of maths for maybe 40 of us.

    We have 5 doing adv.higher maths this year. 4 doing physics and 6 doing chemistry. Not many for a school of 1000, but at least they run the classes, and the small class sizes are great
    We get 6 x 53minute lessons per week.

    Williamwood is considered to be one of the top, if not the top, state schools in Scotland. I just want to make sure you appreciate that.

    Coming from someone who attends one of the bottom, if not the bottom, state schools in Scotland.

    My school's modern studies department can't afford paper and you have three advanced higher maths classes?

    SHAME ON YOU.

    I'm disappointed, Jordan. I can tell you didn't put your full effort into that one.

    Nah mate, my state school didn't ever lose to a state school in academic competitions in my memory, so we must be better:p:

    Haha, our head of year emphasises that same statement to us repeatedly this year, since our higher passing results dropped comparing to previous years and got us from the top to number 3.

    Passed my Unit 3 Stats NAB, Unit 3 Maths NAB and by the skin on my neck my Unit 2 Physics NAB. Handed in my Physics investigation and I think my 2nd Stats investigation has passed. Just gotta find out about my Unit 2 Stats NAB and I'll be able to relax... just a little bit.

    Finished the Maths course today pretty much. Volumes of revolution was the last thing. Oh wait... I think I have more vector stuff to do, oh well. Ok, all the Calculus is done haha.

    Passed the NAB on Tuesday, finished the course completely now. It's time to do some hardcore revision. Did 2011's paper in a double period today and could do everything except the vectors question. Screw vectors!

    The final question was interesting, it took me longer to do that question than the rest of the questions in the paper combined.

    Brilliant question, my favourite on the paper. Apparently no one in last year's class got it... And it was 11 marks.

    I've recalled/devised another instrument of torture interesting question. Do you want to try?

    The masochist in me says yes but the person who wants to be confident says no.

    Do it.
