    Same with my college, you could only do four if you got AABBB at GCSE and I was one A off so I missed out there

    Yeah same! At our sixth form you had to get straight As at GCSE to do 4 A Levels and I got 2 A*s and 8 As (& 1 B) so they offered it to me, but I don't want to compromise any grades for another AS level that isn't exactly necessary

    I took a look at some STEP past papers and was overwhelmed by the problems. Sounds like you're really good at Maths. Take Additional Further Maths if you can.

    I like browsing the STEP prep threads because of the banter they have with each other. Dedicated Maths students are funny to me.
    Yh ahaha they look like a completely different language ahaha! Yup but for STEP you've got to be really good as there are no textbooks to learn from and so you're purely learning it from past papers and mark schemes. Also it's an unpredictable paper as anything could come up!

    Unfortunately Additional further maths isn't an option in our school so I'm just taking further maths

    Haha yh they're super hilarious and can actually pull out good jokes! They genuinely seem like one big happy family

    Hi!

    Starting a new sixth form on Monday and am very excited

    What subjects are you planning to take?

    I'm taking Maths, Chemistry, Biology and History (although History might be to AS only)

    Your favourite subjects?

    Favourite subject is Maths, but it is sadly not my best subject! (That lies with English Literature, for which nothing could persuade me to continue with it :erm:) I also like Ancient Greek, but am unable to take it for A Level.


    Your ideal future occupation?

    I'd like to work in security: the police or the intelligence services.

    ColossalAtom - please tag me in the Cambridge bit! My dream is to go for (Biological) Natural Sciences :crossedf:

    I'm Carpetguy. I like playing Squash. Enjoy reading too, mangaish. Anime a lil bit. Also like computers (ie coding and being geeky) - currently trying to learn Unity and Blender to make my own very game.

    A Levels: Taking Maths, Further Maths, Biology and Physics (Pre-U). Also Italian GCSE. Want to try do some German and Chemistry on the side too. And hoping to be able to do Additional Further Maths (last 6 modules of A Level).

    GCSEs: A in Short Course RS (1 UMS off A*. Going for remark defo). 10 A*s.

    I lyke Physics. Career is probably engineering or physics or something entrepeneury.

    Will apply Ox/Bridge, Imperial, somewhere else cool. Looking at America too (why not?).
    I got 10A*s and an A in RS too Not sure whether to get it remarked as I'm 2 UMS marks off in one paper and 3 marks off in the other.

    What unis are you looking at in America? Curious...

    Exactly, I think 4 is probably too huge a workload anyway

    i am bloated utopia and i make and think and read things in my free hours of the day.

    i'm doing art, eng lit, sociology and photography (probs will drop photography for year 13).

    art is my main education buddy. its the only subject i am completely motivated in.

    i want to go on to study something creative, probably art, but maybe something fashion or graphics related. i am determined to do my foundation course at central saint martins cos the course structure is ace. then for my ba my first choice atm is csm but i'm also considering the slade, bath or for more graphics related stuff london college of communications.

    career wise i wanna do freelance creative stuff. maybe do some curation/art direction. write some stuff, contribute to magazines. all else fails i'll become a secondary school art teacher and play radiohead n massive attack to year 7s.

    Hi I'm Dalal and I live in London.
    My hobbies and interests probably consist of track and field running as well as blogging.
    I'm planning on taking Biology, History, English Lit and Spanish for a-level- my favourite subjects are probably Biology and History!
    I have no clear idea as to what I want to do in the future but something to do with International Relations or Human Rights Law seems fitting.
