    So I've been doing the Upcycling/CAB coursework and I luckily got 41 out of 80 (a low C). Unfortunately, I checked to see if my coursework folder was still there and it wasn't. Although the work has been marked, I'm just worried that coursework grade (60% of the final grade) won't be included in the overall grade as the work isn't there anymore. STRESS!

    Well I actually don't like physics hugely. I mean I love maths so I kinda am reli into Theoretcial Physics (the kinda thing Sheldon does from Big Bang) but then I don't like Experimental Physics much. So I like the mathsy part of it and all the theory and logical side. Not so much basic stuff like making circuits and things hehe! My favourite science is chemistry though, up there with maths and german

    I hope I do it! What ae you into. Are you the journalism fanatic or is that someone else who has a similar dp?
    Oh! I thought that you loved Physics
    I am a huge fan of The Big Bang Theory, esp. Sheldon! I wish I had his brains--but definitely not his personality:lol: That's cool though. I actually prefer Physics over all the science's because of the calculations it and the theoretical side, but hey! Everybody's different Ohh-I hate circuits... it bores me to death!
    Like I told you before, I love English along with maths; and yep, I am the journalist around here! Some actually came to my school on Friday from The Guardian and were doing interviews along with the Mayor of Barnet-- so it was actually pretty cool:P I got to see how journalism actually is! But me liking Literature--don't hold it against me!

    I want to become a journalist, and most probably study either:
    classics/oriental studies/ancient history/anthropology.....
    I really want to make it to Oxford, but I doubt it very much considering the strength of competition
    You? What you want to study at a higher level?

    I'd love to be a secondary school teacher of either French or a science, crazy I know. ;D
    Journalism sounds cool! I wanted to do that in year nine, but then I realised how shocking I was at English. ;D

    I take RE. I did OCR B. Did 2 Philosophy exams last year and 2 Ethics exams this year. What spec are you?
    For philosophy or eastern religions??? I'm sooo confused :s I don't take philosophy... But if I did, I think it'd be the one with ethics and the abrahamic religions

    Degree wise either a field of Engineering, Economics, Econometrics or Maths if I find the A-level easy, that in mind I haven't taken F.Maths.

    For a career I'd link to work in some sort of banking (maybe hedge funds?) or for an engineering company like Aston Martin. Hopefully living in Hawaii, California, Washington Mukilteo or Cornwall (in that preference)

    For University I'm cnsidering Holland or England.

    The idea of living in America is growing on me again... I'd actually need a good career for that though, which I can't see happening! :lol:

    I wouldn't worry about it. ;D
    I change my mind near enough everyday, haha. It's probably best to see how your A-levels go. People might have their heart set on medicine, then realise that they're not suited to chemistry and feel disappointed.

    Hello ladies and chaps, anyone care to help me with these simultaneous equations?:

    4x-y=17 and x=5+y

    I think I have to use substitution but I don't really know what I'm doing.

    They are, but it kept saying I need a password to access them?
    Oh right. That means only your teachers can access them

    set 4x-y=17 as 4(5+y)-y =17
