    Yeah but it costs even more doesn't it?
    I guess, but if your teacher checks it against the mark scheme, sees you should get more marks, remark and your marks go up, the money is refunded to you right?

    And if it's not gone up, it's better to lose around £13 than £40+

    Yeah that's true :dontknow:

    The only drawback is some teachers (as I'm sure you've experienced) are literally useless

    Yeah lol if there's anything wrong with my chem marks this year I'm going straight to my AS teacher, not my A2 one. The guy was half lost throughout the whole year

    Looking at the email I got last year again, there isn't actually enough time to check and then put in for remarks if a uni offer is on hold. I guess if someone meets their offer but thinks they should've got an extra A* or something, they can use that service

    Mathemagicien, did you change your profile pic just to mess with people's head? It's working. I am only seeing two triangles.

    Haha indeed they are!
    Honest to God, if I met my offer, I literally wouldn't care if I got a crazily low mark in a unit I'm pretty certain of getting a high mark in (chem coursework lol)
    I wouldn't even care if I scraped my offer with 270, 270 (A2 Bio & Chem) and 480 Maths because, I met my offer :cry2:

    Surely the rest (the white triangles that complete the shape) is implied by symmetry?
    Nothing wrong with it! It's just funny that, if a person hasn't been accustomed to your usual profile pic, they would usually only see two triangles.

    Listening to crappy music from the mainstream radios.

    They're actually quite catchy

    Does anyone know how Edexcel do the Maths and Further Maths arranging of modules? Like would they prioritise getting an A* in FM over maximising UMS in standard Maths? Worrying a little about it because I think Edexcel are gonna be crappy and put my M2 module in with my A2 Maths and not A2 FM even though I think that's my best chance of an A* in FM (FP2 and FP3 are As at best and S2 maybe borderline A*) :-/
    EDIT: I know that you only need 3 A2 modules but I'm worried that FP2/3 and S2 would come out at an A and then they'd put M2 somewhere else

    They all (afaik) prioritise getting the A* (and highest UMS) in Maths over getting it in FM.

    There's some info here: http://www.furthermaths.org.uk/docs/...ary%202013.pdf

    Ah thank you It looks as though (if there is a chance of an A* in FM) they would give it and then maximise UMS in Maths without lowering the FM grade!

    They're mainstream because they're catchy I guess? I haven't listened to the radio in a long time, probably explains why I am no longer up to date with recent music and am made fun by my friends lol
    Any new favourite you picked up?

    Ohhh nice, art used to be my favourite subject back in primary school but I've lost all my talent in a black hole as I was getting more and more into science
    Any piece you could share with us?
