    Thinking of self teaching myself an entire language, I've taken a particular shine to Norwegian recently but it might be quite hard (probably after A2s)

    hmm?
    Everybody seems to hate me irl for being so up myself and rude. I try to be likeable and as kind as possible to everyone, but it never comes across.

    Why is it so hard to achieve?

    :console:

    I don't know what the root cause is, if you don't mind me asking why do you think you're up yourself and rude? So that maybe I could find out more.about your situation

    Personally I don't make a massive impression in real life because I'm mega shy in every real life scenario, I do have a group of friends but except that I don't try too hard.

    Perhaps you're trying too hard and look a bit fake to people? (not saying you are just suggesting this as a reason)

    another reason could be jealousy, be it grades, attitude to work or how socialable/unsocialable you are

    Or you're generally rude to people, as in name calling, talking behind backs and all of that other jazz.

    I don't know what that last sentence means entirely in this context but I hope you feel better soon

    To be honest, without meaning to sound conceited, the bolded bit is probably the most likely explanation. If someone is nice to me or helps me when I need it, I'll pretty much like them forever and would defend them to the hilt. A lot of the people I socialise with aren't interested in working hard, so I end up spending a lot of free time at college completing work or homework instead of sitting with them (long long long story, but they're not really nice people). So they see me as rude for not wanting to worship them like others do, and up myself due to the outcome of the studying. If I'm pleased with my result I'm rubbing it in, if I'm not then I'm still making them feel bad. It's a lose lose situation haha.

    Do my actions sound rude to you? If they do then please say, I'll try to change them. I can't tell if it's me that's ruining their happiness or if it's the other way around.

    :sigh:

    You're not rude. :no: To be honest, it just sounds like you have lousy friends I'd ditch them if they were my 'friends'.

    I don't think they sound rude at all? If you want to study then why the hell is that rude? at lunch/break/afterschool its your time, you aren't obliged to go out with them and they sound pretty lousy as Endless says if they judge you for studying

    Indeed he was. Ahah my teacher used Trotsky and Lenin planning the revolution as motivation on the day of my Russia exam - seems to have worked

    Thanks, that's put me at ease. I've been drifting away from them slowly over the last year or so, but being in a small college it's borderline impossible to break away from them. Safe to say we won't be keeping in touch after college.

    Thanks. Trust me, at my college even picking up a book is frowned upon by most students. It's pretty hilarious how they have the audacity to complain when they don't get the results they want though. :rolleyes:

    Haha, clever! I wish I'd been able to study that period of Russia more, mine was more about Stalin's reign.

    I know the feeling although I don't think it's too bad now!

    It's when they get to know me, it's good!

    Question. Do I stand a good chance at medicine if I did AS Biology in Year 13? (just curious)

    you'd probably be competitive given your GCSEs and hopefully high AS results, you also need to take account of the UKCAT, PS and other things (work exp for example).

    You'll be viewed collectively but your chosen subjects should be great for med as you have Chemistry I think most unis will take you

    Work Experience I want to try and get to see it I enjoy Medicine. Everyone tells me to do it so I'm actually considering it and I'll apply for Chemistry with French in my spare block!

    AS I should do well, hopefully smashing chemistry and physics (geography too). A in French I hope! Then drop Geography and do Biology AS I think...

    You'll be limited to where you can apply, but a few unis do only require biology to AS so you should be fine.

    Limited how much? Most unis I've seen don't NEED the whole A2... Hmmm
