    It's going to be pretty tough, considering LSE is really competitive and the majority of candidates will have straight A grades, but none of us can tell you for sure whether it's worth applying, it's up to you to decide. Although it's only 1 choice in 5 so you might aswell.

    Do you have any extenuating circumstances to justify the C and D?
    Yeah... That's what I was thinking too

    Not really, I was predicted an A but I'm not sure what on earth happened, I'll definitely be retaking it.
    The D was a result of me flopping the third module, I got an A and a B in the other modules.
    And again, not really. I guess I was just under prepared & had very little advice, but it's my fault.

    At least you can do something of use to you now. Surely the college can't stop you applying for units? Do you have many frees? Can you do work in them?

    I just found out that such a thing as an AS further maths class exists (there's 4 people in it) and they have the exact same lesson times as mine so I should be able to just swap if I convince the relevant teachers so fingers crossed

    Yeah exactly, they probably will submit soon enough, otherwise I'll get my mum involved which leads to them submitting. Can't talk no GCSE bull**** to me now.

    I have quite a few frees, I can sometimes work but not as a effective as home.

    Oh nice! so you won't need to self-teach?

    Lmao you should've seen the class chopping that went on

    Economics:
    Was - around 20 students
    Now - 6 students

    Maths
    Was - around 20 students
    Now - 14 students

    Further Maths
    Was - 6
    Still - 6

    Economics got hit haard. I was the only person who got an A in the entire year!

    Hey, try not to hate me but can you change my unis again

    Can you replace barts and the London and Liverpool with Keele and HYMS and can you also take me off chemistry since I probably won't be applying for it

    I used to take all 4 folders into school, but I got fed up of lugging them around, so I just took one folder and kept the notes in there for a week before putting them into the 4 respective massive folders at home It really works, give it a try
    They want me to use things from previous lessons though? How does that work?

    Neither can I... I've thrown them all away so far :mmm: don't think the teacher was impressed :erm:

    I have a book, that I think I'll use for Geography (I love the human teacher, physical teacher, she's a boring doctor )

    No quite, your AS levels are far more important and schools always submit to parents

    I find it quite hard to work at school, it can be really noisy and there are about 1.5x our year in the year below and of course they're likely to work less.

    I will have to a little bit, they've already done C3 and S1. I've pretty much already done C3 and I've heard S1 is pretty easy, but I need to do it before they start S2 if they do, I'll be pushing for M3 with the physicist in me.

    There was so much class chopping at my school. It's the worst AS results they've ever had, about a tenth to a twentieth of the year have dropped out or restarted. I'm not sure what other schools are like, but at mine pretty much no one drops out after AS. My normal maths and physics classes stayed the same size, but only because two classes have merged in physics and three in maths!

    Economics at my school is really random. Year before last, 0 A*s at A2. This year there were 14 A*s with roughly the same number of people taking it

    Question - is humanly it possible to teach yourself AS Chemistry? I know it's pretty hard, many of my friends came out with disappointing grades and some even had to change their whole future plans as Chem was the dealbreaker.. but for some *crazy* reason, I still want to do it :lol:

    Roots of unity maths thread? :sad::teehee:
    Oh damn, course! I get what you mean when you said roots of unity now from yesterday as well, I thought you meant you had an alternate solution to that BMO1 question with roots of unity. Hang on.

    Here it is:

    Show that x^{2m+1} - a^{2m+1}, \ m \in \mathbb{Z^{+}} can be written as:

    \displaystyle x^{2m+1} - a^{2m+1} = (x-a) \prod_{r=1}^{m} \left[x^2 - 2ax \cos \left(\frac{2\pi r}{2m+1}\right) + a^2 \right]

    I'll be back in an hour or so.

    Of course! AS Chemistry is not conceptually difficult imo, there's just a lot to learn.

    Also bear with me, I'll get back to your PM in a sec. I've been busy with DofE and moving back into school and such and haven't been coming on as often.
