    *You have stumbled upon a realm of a bespectacled teenager with a lanky frame and brown scholarly hair *

    This will be my online diary of my progress for year 12.
    I'll be doing: biology, chemistry, physics and maths.
    I also work part-time. Planning to do medicine and already picked two universities that I'll definitely apply for.

    If you're an expert in any of those subjects, please watch this thread and and share your worldly knowledge with me. If you're curious about me, here's a chance to find out more about me.

    GCSE results:
    A* - Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, Law, Psychology, English language, History and Geography

    A - German and English literature

    I tentatively accepted to work Tuesday to Friday this week, which I regret. Since 7 to 8 hours of sleep didn't feel sufficient the last 2 days.
    My body is still sore with all the worries, probably because the entire process of going to work and working is a fitness marathon.
    Luckily, it only takes me about 13 minutes to cycle to work with my road bike.
    I always look forward to seeing this one girl at work, since she's so unbelievably attractive/adorable. The thought of her is a constant torment.
    I've been looking over the AS Biology content this summer and have been enjoying learning so much in my leisure time.
    I can't believe I start year 12 on Monday!

    I literally covered 25% of Edexcel AS Biology (took me 2 weeks of self-studying). It was all about CVD (cardiovascular disease).
    Read about the risk factors, biochemistry, the cardiac cycle (it only takes 0.8 seconds for a single cardiac cycle!) and more.
    Sphygmomanometer (how do you even pronounce this?) is the device that measures blood pressure. There's two numbers when your blood pressure is measured, the top higher number is your systolic pressure, which is when the ventricles in your heart contracts and pushes the blood to the arteries. The bottom lower number is your diastolic pressure, which is when your heart is at rest momentarily.
    All of this is just the tip of the iceberg!

    I learned my first Maths formula for AS Biology called the Spearman's Rank Correlation Coefficient:
