    Ha, I'm still merely an infant in the field of mathematics and have barely scratched the surface
    A little :L

    A2? Uni?

    Yeah, they call it lower 6th at my school for some reason xD

    You mean these brainz?
    Ha, you can't touch this :smug:

    I'm applying for maths next year anyway so I should hope my trig's up to scratch Yourself?

    Maths is amazing

    Ah, I see! My brother was considering that actually - he read a book about it and got some work experience and said it was pretty boring :L Not that I'm trying to deter you or anything, have fun!

    Agree with that, but the A-level syllabus sucks

    I agree with you about the normal maths but I quite like FM Especially FP2/bits of 3 and the later mechanics modules are quite interesting I thought Having said that, I haven't delved into any uni maths so I'm sure it's far more interesting Quite like the look of analysis

    Hmm. The fact youre going to do a maths degree is amazing. But maths is not amazing.

    Oh right. Well I'm not sure about it yet, I need to secure some work experience before I decide

    :O Blasphemy! Sacrilege! Maths is completely amazing

    Have fun I hear Imperial recently got some new high-tech chairs that cost >£1 000 a piece because people have to sit on them for like 9 hours or something

    Sorry, but science is far more interesting.

    Oh I will.
    That's ridiculous!

    You're just asking for a fight

    I agree that science is interesting in general, but really not at A-level! A-level physics just seems far too fragmented because you don't learn the actual maths involved with a lot of the concepts and A-level chemistry is seriously draining any interest I had in it from GCSE Reaction mechanisms :eviltongue:

    Indeed.

    Well, you need to understand the basics before you get to the good stuff, I suppose.
    Oh shut up, reaction mechanisms are lovely!

    Science is the future. I haven't exactly heard anything about maths and the future. It's just plain, pointless maths. God knows why I took it for A-level.

    Still, A-level physics is far too void of maths for my liking You're joking!? No one likes organic chemistry! Aldehyde this, acidified potassium dichromate that, sickening!

    Are you trolling? :eyebrow: Science is the baby of mathematics! Science and mathematics are symbiotic - if science existed without maths, we'd be decades behind our time o.o

    Not a joke at all. Speak for yourself, I genuinely enjoy it!
    Trig and integration and stupid graphs are sickening!

    Ha, I am not trolling! But you're right, I give you that.
    Science is still better, however as I'm out of arguments, I better shut up.

    Yeah right, organic chemistry is the bane of my existence :afraid: Blergh, agree to disagree.

    Maths is still superior :smug:


    I win, as always :smug: It's just not science which maths has applications in, the list goes on! Econometrics off the top of my head and I'm sure you know that number theory's used in cryptography

    Without organic chemistry, the world wouldn't be what it is today.

    Is not!

    Ergh, alright! Valid point, but I don't want to accept it.

    Yeah, I'd be a lot more sane Kidding, of course it wouldn't, unlike you I can actually appreciate the importance of what I don't enjoy! Seriously, I want a piece of whatever the hell whoever pioneered organic chemistry was smoking - must've been some incredible **** to actually make you enjoy that ****

    Is too! :smug:

    Hahaha! xD What do you mean "God knows why you took maths for A-level" anyway - you want to do Chemical Engineering! That's pretty much all Physics and Maths anyway​ from what I hear xD

    Oii, I can appreciate things I don't enjoy, if I choose to!

    Don't dis chemistry..tis not **** at all!

    It's truee. I love things chemistry related, but I hate maths. And maths that involves chemistry is just about bearable. That make any sense?

    I know, that's what irritates me so much..'chemical engineering' should be about 'chemistry'!
    I'm undecided though; a while ago I wanted to do aeronautical engineering, and before that I wanted to be a cardiac surgeon :L
