    "Take History, it would be easy" they said. :bawling: :getmecoat:

    Seriously, the amount of workload to complete an A2 History coursework essay is surreal. Try finishing a 111 year essay,
    on say Africa 1870-1981 with flawless written expression as-well as managing time for couple drafts before the deadline. :argh:

    My half-term holiday went from :couchpotato: to :eek3: to :nooo: and now :nopity: Anybody else in the same boat? @Procrastinating until the last minute

    Eh, I quite enjoyed D1. Certainly preferable to Mechanics anyway.

    Or I have a test for one of them... Maybe chem

    I just get fed up with it. Find it rather moronic. Stuff like bubblesort so longwinded and frustrating

    Again, frustration doesn't help :lol:

    I always think about how incredible maths is - it's a language we've invented and it's based on axioms. The way everything 'works' is just amazing. I rarely ever get frustrated with maths but that's what I always think about when I do

    We haven't actually finished SHM but I'd say I have yeah.

    Because it's just damping left and that's common sense

    Is there any other year 13 who was completely laid back during year 12, didn't put in any effort and is now stuck with low grades for their abilities and is stressing about UCAS applications?

    I wish I'd worked last year but the only thing I can do about it now is to work harder than ever and retake half my AS exams

    We started polar co-ordinates today in fp2 (edexcel), and I don't want to tempt fate... but it seemed ok...

    I had fun today trying to derive r^2=a^2cos2theta from the cosine graph using identities
    So clever

    My maths teacher says that too; so far the principles are ok but I can imagine the algebra gets tricky later on with areas etc.
    I found m2 hard too, resitting this year
    So far in fp2 all I've fully understood is method of differences and parts of further complex numbers& trig. I feel like until c3 and 4 are out of the way I won't fully feel confident with Taylor and maclaurin series. Havent even looked at dif. equations yet.

    Hi guys i need advice. I always dreamed to becoming a dentist. last summer when i got my results i was shocked. i had a breakdown. it felt like i have nothing. in a really stupid way i felt so lost. so then i had to start thinking about a backup. my family suggested pharmacy. after going for some work experience i realized how much i wouldn't like it. i had to other option but to start thinking about applying for pharmacy because i had nothing else and the deadline was approaching. my personal statement is nearly done and my deadline for ucas is in 2 weeks. i have so much going on like coursework and mock exams. i feel so stressed. my predicted grades are too low for most things. i feel like i have been pressured into pharmcy not just by my family but my friends and teachers. i cant deal with this at all. what i'm most worried about is getting rejected which will destroy my confidence near the exam time. i cant explain to anyone how i feel right now. what do i do? should i not apply now?
