    Depends on exam board, I guess, but you definitely needed it in Admaths, one use for it was finding the x and y axes intercepts of a circle.
    must be the board then, I remember doing it for Additional Maths too for that

    Like Russel group but only 8 members, Harvard Princeton Yale etc... But I'm more interested in the tech ones that aren't members like MIT and stanford/berkley

    My worst subjects will be 'RE, Spanish and English lit... And language xD

    My teacher didn't even teach us recurring decimals xD I taught myself half the course...

    I'm genuinely concerned for my results because I couldnt bothered and could have done so much better, I dont want results to bite me so early on as . Know it's so competitive for these good unis and apparently everyone else has 2748374 a*s. Damon, how am I supposed to Afford a 200k. Lamborghini? XD

    Car show next to the restaurant I' m eating in... Score
    Oh right, I know what you mean.

    Wow, that's terrible.. You must have had a pretty shocking teacher...

    Don't worry man, I'm sure you'll be fine. You don't seem like the sort of person who will fail miserably, and I reckon you'll easily get the grades to get to where you want to go next. Once you've done that, don't even think about your GCSE results. I'm the same, I didn't put any effort into any of my subjects apart from Maths, German and English Language, and I got everything I needed. Everything else I just revised the night before (Tourism and Food Tech I didn't revise at all, and I didn't even do the coursework for Food Tech) and I feel like everything turned out alright. You'll be fine, trust me.

    Guys, I need some advice. Are the people you take lessons with important? Like, is it a massive issue if you don't really get on with anyone in your set?

    You shouldn't mind about getting along, you kind of need to study a lot and basically have no social life

    Actually, I'm guilty of not updating either. My last story I updated with 2 chapters a day for a week or so and then just left it hanging (I didn't get many/ any :eek: reviews either because I was apparently updating too quickly for people to get a feel of the story)
    Feel free to check it out
    I haven't read any novels although I did watch a film themed on dystopia. Dystopia is the main focus for my english coursework which is why I've begun to learn about it (it is quite an interesting concept though)
    I'm more into shows like Teen Wolf, The Vampire Diaries, etc; although I never have any time to watch them so I either have to read about what happened or watch the episode 3-4 days after it's aired :sigh:
    Yeah... I've done that a couple of times... well, I always come back to them, but sometimes I leave it for 6 months or so just abandoned, which is really bad! The number of revies I get varies, but that doesn't bother me too much - if I get any I'm ecstatic, and if I don't then, well, I just need to try harder. Everyone should have been happy that you were updating quickly though - I love quick updaters, they're amazing!
    Ahh yeah, there are some cool films as well. That's such an awesome focus for coursework, whoever set that is incredible! The classic dystopian novel is probably 1984 by George Orwell - if you haven't read it you really should. Maybe your school has already set it though?
    I get a lot of both Teen Wolf and Vampire Diaries on my Tumblr dash - I might start watching Teen Wolf if I ever get time! I'm more into Superwholock (Supernatural, Doctor Who, Sherlock), Merlin, Game of Thrones and Hannibal, as well as CSI which doesn't seem to have so much of a fandom. Yeah I get that problem - I have to wait until after the show has aired most of the time, watching it online or something, and it's so hard to avoid spoilers!

    Thank you haha. It's band shirt. The band are called Hot Damn (as you can probably tell ) and if you really want one you can pick one up here - shows the full design too.

    For anyone interested, here's what they sound like.

    Spanish? Yes, 'RE? I just wasn't interested and the rest of the class were thick so it didn't motivate me, English? The teacher wasn't bad, I mean she was good looking so at least she held my attention xD but somewhat young to have much experience?

    And true, we should both get by fine I even got a card from my history teacher because I went from a D to an A in my many mocks, I barely even tried too what do you want to do at a level, uni, career?

    Lol, you look like a cool guy, but with the name Lucas I thought you'd be black haha, I'd post a pic of myself but I may get recognised O.O maybe later

    Accutane? And also what did enrollment involve? Since I won't be going to it.

    1984- George Orwall. :cry: Thats a book? I was supposed to read that before school starts (not going to happen now). Thanks for unintentionally helping me
    I like Doctor Who, Sherlock and Game of Thrones too. I follow the first 2 more closely though and kind of went off Merlin due to not liking the plot

    Yeah, it sucks when you're one of the only people in your class that genuinely wants to do the work. Haha damn I wish I had attractive teachers! I know what you mean though about the whole experience thing.

    Haha, see that's a good thing! If you can bump up your grades like that then you shouldn't have any problems with your results. A level I'm doing Maths, German, Psychology and Sociology. Don't have a clue what I want to do at Uni.. I have Criminology in my mind.. but that would only be if I had to make a choice right now. I'll look into courses a little more after I'm settled into college. What about you?

    Haha thanks. Well my name is actually Luke, but I prefer Lucas, just seems cooler. That's the only reason I did post a picture, I searched TSR for my school, college and local villages, and the only thing that's been mentioned is my college - albeit 6 years ago - so I reckon I'm safe.

    Accutane is a drug that 'cures' moderately severe acne. Been on it for 8 weeks and it's made a craaaaaaazy difference. I need to go on another course because it's still pretty bad, but I'm honestly happy with how I look at the moment. Sounds lame but I'm not scared to leave the house and talk to strangers any more.

    (Original post by Lucas.)
    Enrolment.

    Walked into some building, got a slip of paper with my name on it, sat down with some woman, she checked over my GCSE results, got told to talk to some man, he made me confirm my AS choices, walked over to some place to give them £58 for equipment (I know I said it was £40 the other day, but it turns out I can't read
    ), sat down and had my picture taken, walked into a different room and wrote the essay. Then I walked out, got a McDonalds and got the train home.
