2. Can you do the Z test? Whats A-level Statistics like, is it worth doing? My sixthform does it and I'm a bit tempted

You have three 1h30 minute A-level Statistics papers to do this summer! 😯

Seems like it I'm currently self-teaching Mann-Whitney U test, that was on last years unit 2 paper.

Sorry about that. Usually when I see M1 Mechanics come to mind XD.
I'm doing M1 for the A-level Maths option Are you taking Further Maths?

You lucky thing, how have you not started yet?

Sixth Form is far more independent - teachers treat you more like adults, and w/ more respect.

Workload is a LOT bigger though.
This is very true. Now I can mess around with being told off!

8. - Introduce yourself
i'm charlotte! i'm 16, almost 17, and i just started sixth form. at gcse i achieved 6 A*'s, 2 A's and a B.
- What are your hobbies and interests?
i love crime shows, drag queens, watching video game streams, reading scandinavian crime novels and writing. i also love music, my favourite band being against me!
- What subjects are you planning to take?
i was initially studying media, law and performing arts. except i dropped performing arts straight after my first lesson, so i'm hoping i can substitute it for religious studies.
media and religious studies have been my favourites since gcse.
i'd like to work in law since it's something i am incredibly interested in.

Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Maths + FM. That sounds great! What's psychology like by the way? (:
I have no idea. I'm kind scratching around at the moment. I think I'm going to continue using flashcards + making notes. Then I'll go over them again and again. + Do questions from the textbook. The mind-maps idea sounds good! You could try it out for a week and see how it goes?
