    Mathemagicien, Serine Sоul,

    Since I said before I would ask a friend what my height is (compared to theirs), one of my good friends said I was "something like 5'10'' ", just as I supposed.
    Wtf I'm like 5'6 maybe 5'7 , didn't realise everyone was a giant ffs

    I think our heights are pretty normal, physicsmaths' height is definitely abnormal though. My ideal height is 6 feet so I hope I can get a few inches there. As far as I know, one doesn't stop growing until like 18 right?

    In a weird way I'm kind of glad I developed it early on because I can imagine it being really traumatic to go through puberty and development with your spine twisting :O It makes for a great introductory story though

    It's the best height to be at - small enough to hide but not so small to get lost!

    I have some friends who are shorter as well but they compensate with massive, impossible to walk in heels!
    Yeah it must be awful!

    I agree, though there are some shelves that are still beyond reach for me :'(

    They defo have these massive 5 inch heels that just look painful I can barely manage 3

    you might wanna try and stop growing at some point, after 6 ft+ there were so many low doors in cambridge I hit my head on.

    Alright, I believe you. I must have misremembered.

    Depends. You'd certainly grow taller if you did this:

    Incorporate lots and lots of protein into your diet, and hang something off the ceiling to try and reach everyday (stretching basically)

    I had a phase where I was very determined to reach 5'8 so I could become a model, but stopped following my routine after 2 days...

    All right, so grade boundaries for both A-levels and STEP are released on about 15/16th August. Where would I find those grade boundaries?

    AFAIK, STEP boundaries are released strictly on the 17th. Might be wrong about that.

    You'll find them on the ATS website.
