    Yes, it is 45 degrees, assuming you launch it from ground level. I just wanted to see what people would intuitively think, if they weren't a science person.

    I intuitively thought 45 too, but then I thought this might be something of a set up and it ended up being something else.

    No science A-levels but I loved Physics and Chemistry at GCSE.

    Hey everyone, in need of some advice...
    I really want to go to kings for geography, the requirements are: AAB
    In AS I achieved: A(Geography) B(English) B(Psychology) D(Biology)
    I dropped biology, is there a chance of me getting an offer, supposing that my predicted grades will be AAB ( I don't think I'll get an A in English!) Thanks in advance!

    As long as your predicted grades are AAB then you're certainly in with a chance. With ABB there is a fairly high chance that you will achieve AAB if you work hard this year. More important now is your personal statement!

    I agree - the entire application process is nerve-wracking. But hopefully everything will go OK in the end...

    Yup I've done the UKCAT.. 2710, so not bad but not brilliant either :/ I'm now considering, imperial, ucl, Bristol and either Sheffield or Southampton, still unsure
    Ohh so 677.5 average. Imperial and UCL requrie BMAT so is that an option? The others seem like a good choice too. Try to avoid uni's which care a lot about UKCAT.

    If I changed teachers and classes in a subject from AS to A2, is that worth getting my reference to mention? Because I read something on the Manchester website that changing teachers part way through a course counts as mitigating circumstances in their eyes.

    I think it's quite common between AS and A2 to change classes and teachers, so I doubt it

    you're an angel!

    edit: lol forgot to add the Q

    y=((3x-2)^2)/sqrt x

    differentiate with respect to x

    I can differentiate it but cannot simplify it for the life of me!!

    Hi, I'm Beth. My AS results were A (Biology), A (Psychology), B (Chemistry) and B (History). I've dropped History and picked up AS Maths this year, and I'm hoping to achieve A* in both Biology and Psychology and at least an A in Chemistry. I'm getting really stressed out about personal statements because I want to apply to Oxford for Biochemistry (the B in Chemistry will probably reduce my chances, but it's worth a try anyway). I suppose the advantage of sending an early application, though, is that I won't need to stress about writing my personal statement when I've sent my application.

    The simplification I have is (sqrt x)/2[27x^2-12x-4)

    I'm not sure I can spot anything simpler, and I'm posting my working (by hand because I don't know LaTeX) because I've probably slipped up somewhere.

    Do you have an answer to aim for?

    Apparently the answer is ((9x+2)(3x-2))/2 sqrt (x^3)?

    The brackets multiply to form the quadratic I had, but I really don't understand the square root bit (I had x^(1/2) and they have x^(-3/2)).
