    I slept a bit after that then woke up at 4 because of the wind at my window and just couldn't fall back asleep... Felt like death today...

    I slept for nine hours last night and I still feel sleep deprived because I spent my weekend in Menai sleeping on the same floor as 20 excitable year 7 girls

    Can't imagine how sleepy you feel

    Hate teachers who expect you to continue a subject just cos you're good at it even though you hate it. My music teacher expects me to do music hl and I actually hate music now. Not as fun anymore

    Straight maths or engineering if i decide that after taking further maths that it's suddenly insatiably boring. I know someone who applied this year for maths but got pooled and didn't get an offer.
    ahah, how dare you consider that maths might be boring!! :mmm:

    Thats a shame

    Give CompSci a good think! It's the best subject (note: there may be some small bias as a Cambridge CS offer holder...). It's like the best bits of Maths and engineering.

    Wow, that's awesome! Do you know around how many words you wrote? I think I may have written too much :/
    I wrote 800 on one and 900 on the other. I don't think writing too much is a problem as long as you include everything like the tenses, can memorise it well enough, and don't go over the time limit.

    Wow! I wrote about 700 and had to cut down because my teacher told me it would be well over the time limit so I've had to reduce to less than 500 words Thanks for the help!

    Currently further maths GCSE is alright a bit easy but It's a bit irritating that my current school makes you take D1 & D2 and to be honest whilst Decision is easier and probably gives better table results it's massively boring and maybe not as useful for going into a maths degree.

    I'm sure there is a lot of bias. and the best bits are probably subjective to you.

    Thats a shame, which course do you take? We do AQA's Certificate thingy where you can get an A* Distinction, i think it looks like this A^

    Decision modules are funny because they are soo easier and simpler than stats and mechanics yet because they're so easy, UMS boundaries are fairly high which is important for Cambridge

    Yeah it's the AQA one but A^* is only 80% which makes it pretty achievable and the only really new things in it are differentiation and matrices.

    What maths stuff are you doing in school now? are you doing AS still.
