    I love the product description :lol: for those days when you're feeling like shiitake :rofl:

    Made from durable rubber, they even feel like the real thing
    Four different and slightly phallic fungi to choose from
    All I'm saying is that GiF can be looked at another way :lol:
    Other than that seems like a good buy

    Why do you have to resit if you got a B at AS? Is it not so good A2's? and If so why not just resit that instead?
    P.S. I'm doing AQA

    That's the mindset! Try and push for full marks, so you'll always have a feel for improvement unless you get everything right!

    Well from what I've read you can get an A* if you get a B at AS levels(you need to meet two conditions),
    However,I don't have much faith that I'll be able to do that!What if I get full at A2 and get an A overall.Will be disappointed!

    Not sure if it's different for your exam board but, if you get 90% average between C3 and C4 at A2 and 80% overall between your whole A level syllabus, you're awarded the A* grade.
    So a B at AS and 90% at A2 would meet both conditions as the average between the two is 80% and you have 90% in your A2's.

    You've mentioned her before - I've listened to one of her songs quite regularly in the past, but nowadays I'm listening to Dream Theatre, John Petrucci and Crossfaith mainly :lol:

    You'll have to ask someone in the maths thread who has done CIE, I can't seem to find relevant information on the net.

    I feel like I should inform you about what genres they are :lol:
    Crossfaith is metal with synthesizers
    John Petrucci's solo album Suspended Animation (Glasgow Kiss is my favourite and one I'm learning to play) is just really nice guitar tracks, nice variety though; there are some more emotional songs as well as lively ones
    Dream Theater has a huge variety - pop, metal, rock, jazz... I've only listened to like 4 of their songs but I really like them

    I've actually realised how many sounds I used to miss... After starting to learn the guitar and focusing on actually 'listening' to music and all the sounds, you hear a lot more things :holmes:

    I've been testing out EDM recently, theres this one song off SoundCloud app (I can't remember it) it's pretty good! I'm hunting for this song haha.
    That's definitely a variety, I havn't really listen to jazz or metal before, and for guitars, "Hey There Delilah" is what springs to mind:lol:

    I feel like that last sentence of yours is some sort of quote from a famous person

    I don't know if it is, but have a listen to Glasgow Kiss. Then listen to the backing track. Then listen to Glasgow Kiss again you can find them all on YouTube :lol:

    Maybe the 1st minute only of each, and you'll see what I mean
