    Haha lol i am envious of people who are naturally gifted at maths! I'm the opposite, Chemistry is probably one of my strongest subjects! No doubt, it will probably be 10x harder at A-level!
    Chemistry is fun at times and I have a nice class for it next year. Looking forward to it. I think it's my banker for an A* at GCSE, if I don't get it I will jump off a cliff next Thursday.

    What is 'enrichment'? Or is it different depending on the school?

    I noticed along side out frees and lessons we also have 2 periods of enrichment every 2 weeks and 2 periods of General Studies or 'Statutory' Games, or something like that....
    Anyone?

    True, if I find it interesting enough and not stupidly difficult I may consider keeping it... But I doubt I will, I was never amazing at it, and I heard the AS-A2 jump is killer
    Yeah but the jump from AS to A2 seems bigger than GCSE to AS in most subjects. Anything's possible if you work hard enough.

    Whilst that is true I also believe American universities only do group interviews
    Are you talking about that guy that got 7 A*s but didn't get into Oxford?

    It's just extra qualifications/skills/experience intended to strengthen your uni application in my view.

    Still not looking forwards to it! I hope the physics and maths course's are good, I love physics and am good at it, I like maths and am good at it... I just don't want it to be like GCSE and get really bored because the course content is rubbish!

    Actually I read somewhere that people with blue eyes are generally more intelligent than people with brown eyes, most Asians have brown eyes But yh I'm guessing it's
    to do with the Asian work ethic which is enforced by their parents resulting in excellent grades or severe punishment Well thts my theory anyway:awesome:

    Where did you read that, Mein Kampf? ahahah :') Having blue eyes helps you seen in the dark a lot better, I haven't heard about the intelligence thing though.

    GCSE Physics is just awful. I've studied some AS and A2 Physics and I can assure you it is way more interesting but also way more challenging.

    Haha I wish I could study things like History, Philosophy and Spanish alongside the sciences but obviously A-Levels are too time consuming for that to be realistic unless you are L'Evil Fish.
    Ahaha, I see. People have different strengths!
    I hope he sees this! He's not a person though, sooooo

    Yep I've chosen Bio, Chem, English Lit and Psychology. How about you?
    I'm doing those exact a-levels, but aiming for Medicine!
    Have you been agonising over choosing maths or not too?
    I know I don't need it but...

    Yeah he's just too good at academics. I could have sat AS Maths and AS Religious Studies last summer but didn't so I could focus on my GCSEs but I really regret it because then I could have ended up with 5 A2s and an extra AS which would have been nice.

    It is, and we had a really boring teacher too, sucked! The first unit of Maths sucked, but it got better in Unit 2 and when Unit 3 came along with proper trig and stuff I started to like it more...

    I think our school is doing the OCR B course for Physics, what are you on?

    I don't read much into this... motivation will overwhelm any effect inherited benefits you get.
