    "A First Course in Abstract Algebra" by John B. Fraleigh.
    It's given to Indian institutions afaik, it has good exercises but I think there are better books on abstract algebra; one of those classic books. It works through basic group theory, and then connects it to the other algebraic structures like rings and fields; at the end there is some galois theory.

    What are you on
    Had so much lemonade today. Literally so pumped for edexcel boundaries. Gna be so fun.
    Imagine if Physics is decent and M5 and 1 more out of D1 D2 and S4 has low boundaries.
    I would literally get 4A*s crazy.
    So far yet so close.

    Hehe, not Indian.
    I presume, you are Indian?
    So many great mathematicians are Indians, I guess because of your educational system or just because of culture?

    I know right fam, I am so pumped for OCR but I think I may miss the A in Chemistry :////
    there is like no chance of me getting lower than A* in FM since I got all full UMS (or a bit off full UMS for FP3 probably) in FP1, FP2, FP3, M3, M5 and a D grade in M4
    gonna back you up when retards call you retard for the basic computation that is A-levels

    Yes and i can only speak for the latter as I had the British education system experience. It's a matter of pride for most Indian families that their children be well educated; at least in the past.
    Might i add: thanks Gove for the 'wonderful' experience.

    I usually dose up on caffeine pills so that day just gonna take sleeping pills and see how it goes. Gotta find where they sell those pills when I arrive in Cambridge, my mum usually buys them for me kek.

    Yeah they are all pretty salty

    Still trying to decide if I want to look at grade boundaries or not. Think I've got a pretty good idea of my raw marks in each paper so theoretically I should be able to calculate my grades which would be nice to know, but I'd rather just not know if I've failed. Plus there always seems to be dodgy marking (I'm looking at your OCR maths) and last year I was half a grade out on some of my raw predictions, so I don't want to look and think I've got in tomorrow, then get all excited and Thursday's disappointment will be even worse either.

    Ugh I hate making decisions :dontknow:

    The only good thing is that I stupidly stayed up until 5 last night so got 2.5 hours sleep before a full days work sat at a computer and I don't think I'll get much more than 7-8 hours sleep tonight so hopefully I'll be so tired tomorrow I won't be awake worrying for too long. Fingers crossed.

    >tfw I am considered arrogant for not liking your autism
    >tfw you are Oxford wannabe and yet don't know the meaning of 'arrogance'

    I pity you fam
    but it's ok
    you will fit right in Oxford
    and you can at least put autism in the extenuating circumstances form
    Solipsist!
    You'd be a wonderful doctor!

    My friend is going at King's college and honestly after witnessing who is considered to be a mathmo....I was disappointed

    Did you seriously just say that I am a bad mathematician for not liking you?

    You are a joke.

    There is a possibility my friend. It might be inversely proportional to the assumption that I am autistic.

    Hopefully lecturers will be able to appreciate a bit of banter in my proofs, such as:
    Clearly the result follows..
    From here it is trivial to show that...
    Etc
