    I said that there was nothing wrong with asking questions why. My problem occurs when he's struggling with such simple concepts. They will not expect him to be struggling with C1 or C2. Can you imagine what would happen at an interview (if he even got one)? It would be the most awkward thing for him to go through since those questions are very tough. Do you seriously think that anyone who struggles with C1/C2 at this stage of the AS year can cope with the Oxford admissions test or STEP in a under a year/by the summer of the year after next? I thought not.
    And what would you know about the Oxbridge maths application process? You didn't even BOTHER to apply!

    I'm perfectly fine with that but when you go to talk about Oxbridge maths, I find that it is insulting to anyone who has studied there in the past. There's almost nothing to understand in C1 AT ALL. You couldn't answer most of the questions you've posted, which are extremely basic.

    All I'm saying is that you should not get your hopes up about oxbridge. I didn't apply to Oxbridge for maths because I knew I wasn't good enough. I found C1-C4 VERY straight forward. Did not need any help at all. You're struggling with C1 and C2 more than I struggled with STEP III ffs.

    Maths isn't for you by the looks of things. Apply for something else and come down to Earth before you make a massive mistake.

    What did you get in the SMC, that'll settle it. If you didn't get at least 75 marks then you do not have the right to argue against what I have said.
    nice one, keyboard warrior.

    EDIT: I bagged your mum last night, even though you said it was impossible.

    You made your point, I think you should leave it at that. :P
    A lot of people would rather try than not - whether or not you agree with this is a separate matter - there's no need to push your point further.

    You think I'm struggling as a result of a few questions? I'm not at your level yet anyway of course this stuff is easy.
    Don't bother fighting for your case with this guy - it's obvious he/she/it won't change their mind. Just stick to the ambitions you have and work towards your goals.

    75 is pretty crap though, you only need to get half the paper right, there were Year 11's in my school who got higher than that

    I guess you're right. The thing is, no one has the guts to say anything on this forum. That's why I'm speaking the truth. People obviously don't like hearing the truth.

    You'd be surprised. Most people who post like trolls on TSR do tend to be a bit retarded.
