    I had my Leavers assembly yesterday, didn't shed one tear sadly But I did get emotional when I said goodbye to one of my bestfriends. All the girls in my school wore 6 inch heels I'm just thankful for my wedges and we went to tinsel town home to America burgers and milkshakes it's really great. Did anyone have their Leavers assembly and do you really think you'll keep in touch with your current friends?

    I had my leaves assembly on the 11th, that's when we left I did shed a tear as three of my best friends are leaving my school for a different sixth form too, it was very emotional. Of course I'll keep in touch with them! I have my band with one and I'll try my very best to be with the other too.

    Just so I don't seem weird, I'm Abbie

    I haven't really identified any topics that desperately need revision except for that. If any come up over the next few days of revision I'll ask you for sure I'm scared that I'm being a bit complacent though I find most of maths quite easy, and all of my friends doing AS Maths this year keep on going on about how easy maths is haha, so I haven't given it much attention
    Oh, that's cool
    Same! I get a lot of people saying to me never to do A-Level Maths-- but since I love the subject so much, I don't listen to them!

    i think its hard cos u cant really revise for it and it's really specific on the mark scheme. also it really depends what topic you have. i resat unit 2 cos the first unit was aout the economy and china and their product development and i didnt no anything about it and normally background knowledge is required. I think i scraped a c so i wanted to resit it and the new paper i did was about prostitutes! it was soo funny and i couldnt stop laughing when i opened the exam. there was like five of us in the hall or sniggering or trying not to laugh and the examiner had to remind us that we were in a public exam and to b in exam conditions. what was worse was that one q asked about dehumanising and my friend didnt no wot that meant so thought de-human and wrote about aliens having sex. she told me this as soon as we finished the exam and was outside and that moment made the whole thing worth it. that and the fact that i've now got a B
    OMG! Are you serious?
    hahha--lol! I can't believe that
    This is most probably the most funniest thing I heard all day!
    I don't think that I'm passionate towards the subject any longer:rolleyes:

    GCSE was never going to be ground breaking stuff, that's why I can't wait for degree level with research.
    I know, lots of work! Hopefully it wont be too bad, I enjoy it so it's not painful for me to sit there. Geography on the other hand...
    I bet you'll start enjoying it less when the work and exams start piling up And at least you don't have to do geography any more.

    What do you want to study at uni?

    Thats a given with subject though so there is bound to be a little bit towards exams and stuff. Hate geography with a passion.
    Either astrophysics/physics or chemistry, what about you?

    I guess.
    I don't know yet. Probably Maths, maybe Economics. I found a 'Maths + Foreign Language' course which looked pretty good, but I'll work it out next year when I start applying for places.

    Which language are you thinking about?
    I know I'm early but I'm too excited for university, I've got about 10 prospectuses and I have a decent idea of where I want to go ahaha

    aww thanks! I don't no it's really weird. I get sohcahtoa. but its the ^-1 bit ahaha.
    The -1 bit is to find the angle of SOHCAHTOA

    I'll give you an example of a SOH triangle.
    If you wanted to find angle x in a right angle triangle you find the side opposite (O) to angle x and the hypotenuse (longest side) (H) to it .

    Now you do SOH

    so S= opposite/ hypotenuse

    But since it's an angle you do Sin-1( opposite/hypotenuse)

    Make sense?
