    Have an almost empty timetable (including two days with no lessons at all), yet we're not allowed study leave this year so must be present in school regardless.

    Today I had two frees then double Biology, then English Lit last. Our Biology class has 4 people in it :eek:

    No, my school's just strange. I'm in year 13. My school has a secondary school and a sixth form and some of the year 13s get given prefectship over some of the young tutor groups. I got that so spent half the day with them. The other half was spent sitting around, pointless.

    Oh right. I'm hoping my over 90% in AS maths plus doing C3 and half of C4 over the summer will mean I can do my own further maths AS work in class and an A* prediction

    Hmm didn't you already do AS maths :P?. I did the same but I completed C4 pretty much - everything is going to plan, gonna start S3 tomorrow. Same here, no point re-learning C3 and C4 when I could dedicate more time to the further pure units

    Yeah I did, but I haven't done further AS. To be honest I didn't like maths until half way through last year, it was just a tool. I think it's because we never get given why things work only that they do, but after looking stuff up I find it far more interesting.
    I was going to finish C4, but after I got my results I decided to use the summer holidays to have a holiday
    I think I can just go so much faster than my class (it had 2 Us and a D in it in AS, luckily the Us have left). If I think I can work fast enough doing further AS work I might consider doing full A2 further maths, but I'm nervous about burning out and giving up or crumpling under the pressure in the summer especially seeing as I'm retaking some units from other subjects.
    Do you know when the deadline for applying for units is? Is it this term or still after January? My school's resit application deadline is in October for some reason

    Ah I didn't like maths until the start of this year so there are some late starters. Fair enough haha, I should have probably done a bit more relaxing but I feel more relaxed with less work over time. Same here! no offense but the way the teachers teach and the amount of breaks between lessons slows down stuff so much. Ah fair enough its worth considering though if u really enojy maths!
    Umm It's gotta be around March surely? since exams are only June 2014. and Hmm that's for resits but actual exams can be much later from what I see

    Think on the brighter side.... Private schools get praised for their high grades due to the low teacher:students ratio.... With 1:2, it looks like your going to receive top noch education in that subject!!! (Unless the teacher is awful, in which case it will be hell )
