    Argh. Had a day off today due to the Lower Sixth coming in. Turns out the total number of students has risen to 4,100. This is going to be interesting - we were full enough with last year's 3,607.

    The lowers have only just come in??
    Are you a school or just a sixth form? Either way that's a massive group of people :/

    It's ridiculous how schools would actively block students from wanting to learn! Fair enough if you wanted to take 6 completely separate subjects, but AS AFM is just more maths and you reuse what you already know. I don't get it :confused:

    I've been trying hard not to get my parents involved as I want the school to see my point of view, but I may have to. Parents evening is on Friday

    Ugh they gave me the same exact reason for being so hostile against AS additional further maths, they have no faith in me!

    Just wondering, what sort of grades do you think would be realistic for an insurance offer of mine?
    I got AAB and hope to get predictions of A*AA but maybe more realistically at A*AB. Hoping to do economics, which i got AA for econ+psychology and a B for maths (Damn you bad C2 day!)

    In Maths and Physics, it's around 20ish. For Computing, it's more like 30, as they have decided to move one of the old A2 teaching blocks to AS.

    Reading some of that makes me think of my school.... back in year 10, a few of us took IGCSE maths early. And so in year 11, we had hoped to make a start on AS maths. However, the stubborn maths dept was like: here, do IGCSE further pure maths! IGCSE futher pure maths is pretty much an overlap of the core maths in A-level, and it didn't help that for most of the year our maths teacher didn't know enough math himself. About 4 months before exams, a new teacher came and my results improved somewhat... getting a B overall.

    The next year for AS maths, I decided to take C3 module early. But she wouldn't give textbooks and said I shouldn't do it because there wouldn't be any teachers to help because of timetabling problems. When it got closer to exam times, the head of maths, sixth-form and another teacher were telling me I shouldn't do it because I would get bad grades and totally mess up my grades. Still did it and got an 85/100 on my own.

    Problem was those teachers all left this year so no one to really prove to about my C3 result.
