    I am! Shamefully. It only makes me mad, especially in the latter stages of the competition. I don't know why I put myself through it.
    lol I'm just bored I don't normally watch these shows.

    Anyone watching this years X-factor?
    The X Factor is everything that's wrong with the music industry at the moment. At the end of the day Simon Cowell couldn't give a toss about talent, he just wants to find someone with an average (or better voice) who is extremely exploitable/marketable in the industry in the current train wreck it is in at the moment.

    The X Factor makes me so mad, I could write a whole book on why it's a disgusting show, and it's not just the 'music' side of it that's disgusting either.

    Hey :cool: (Is this fashionably late? )
    I'm doing AS Biology, Chemistry, Maths and History all with CCEA. Our option for History is option 5: Germany (1918-1945) and Russia (1903-1941). Not that it matters since I'm the only one on this site doing CCEA History! But as for Chem, Bio and Maths...Molly, Molly and mascot: my comrades in arms.

    I need to convince someone I know Zayne from 1D, it will be soo funny xD. And yeah I've seen a few talented singers on that show fall to the wayside to pave the way for the next cash cow.

    Your college is doing really well-A*C pass rate is 77.2% nationally and the A*-A pass rate is 26.3% nationally.I am going to make some predictions on the A-Level results in 2015(our year group)-A*(5%) A(17%) B(26.8%) C(24.8%) D(14.9%) E(6.6%).
    Thanks for the figures

    [Edit: Nevermind I was looking at the wrong bit... ]

    Also, this is going to seem so weird, but can you remember a guy who was at your school a few years ago called Jordan Smith? A very common name I know.. but if you do, that is so weird, because I know him... He plays guitar and skateboards.. was also on an episode of Embarrassing Bodies, used to have long hair... :eek:

    I am Tess, but I live quite a way from Chippenham - I'm sort of around the Yate and Cribbs Causeway area (but not really, I don't know how else to describe it - I'm just an awful lot nearer the river than you are!) , but I don't want to give away my town because it's quite small

    And yes, I did and will continue to do Spanish - I got an A* at GCSE and will continue at A-level from this week

    The statistics that that league table provides for my school are from last year, so it doesn't take into account this year's results, by the way.

    I actually wrote about it as part of my English coursework- I named it the Axe factor and then followed all the reasons why the x-factor should be axed
