    no as we are doing the mechanics exam after Christmas and our OCR A textbooks haven't come yet, so we did a lesson on S I units, standard form and percentage errors and uncertainties

    chemistry i have two teachers one teaching module 1 the other doing module 2 i've had both teachers and in one lesson we went over maths stuff and equation regarding mols .. n= m/Mr

    and in the other we did orbitals which sadly a few of my class found confusing :facepalm:
    oh that's cool, i'm on OCR A too and my school is making us buy our own textbooks, and like 2 ringbinders per subject for some reason

    But I have books that I'm going to take in every day...? I'm not really sure what you're trying to say, sorry, haha.
    Do you mean exercise books:confused:I understand now but will you be buying and bringing in revision books to revise from alongside your books and paper:confused:

    Yeah, I just bought some books today to do my work in.

    And I'll eventually get around to buying revision guides, maybe in a few weeks time. I don't need them just yet.

    Today I found out I will be a 'buddy' for one of the 2nd/3rd years who were on report last year, to help with Maths and general homework, anyone else done this?

    I will take him under my wing and he will be my protégé.

    That's a lot of Maths! I have at least 6 hours a week of Maths (including Further) but I could have more as I've only had one of my teachers so far and when I have the others they might organise more lessons before or after school. I love Maths but a lesson at 8.15 on a Monday morning does not sound very appealing.
    Maths is great fun though and you will have had two days rest so you will be fine and by rest I mean rest in the A-Level version of the word, you will still have to do work
    I use to do and sometimes still do Maths at 12am on weekend days and never stopped till 7am on some days.

    Has anyone else here started a new sixth form? At my school, there are loads of year 11s who haves moved up, and only a few of us newbies . Any advice for newbies, especially since the students who are already there keep talking about things that have occurred before at their school and I don't have a clue what they're on about ?

    I've just started a new sixth form too. Some of the students were talking about their holidays and I just laughed along and asked questions (they're not trying to make you feel awkard, they just have a lot of catching up to do ).If you want to make friends just try and make conversation with people in your lessons (going to spend a lot of time with them) as it is must be pretty daunting for them to talk to new students as it is for you to talk to them. I had a great today by talking to other students and made quite a few acquaintances too. Just relax and try making small talk with them and other new students.

    Yeah, it won't be that bad. I really enjoy Maths and I'm sure I'll get used to it soon enough - especially as there'll be cake involved

    I think that its a great idea to buy time because when you find time that you can't go home but have nothing to do at College then you can revise.To add to this,I have decided to arrive 45 minutes before lessons to College to make sure I'm not late if there are problems with the buses and this means that once I get there I may as well revise-its light revision but still very helpful

    My Geography teacher gave us all AQA Geography books so I have been lucky because I nearly bought them and now I have two geography books.My Maths teacher has told me that there are 6 books to buy for Maths and Further Maths and I intend to buy them all.I have bought a Physics AS book with CGP and am thinking of buying individual books for each unit or an AQA book but I will see how that develops.

    I couldn't say i don't have much to compare them too really :lol: the MEI one is it has many questions and examples, some are harder than exam ones so it does prepare you well

    it may be called something else :lol: its basically like a tutor i believe

    anyway i have TRIPLE biology tomorrow :awesome: i hope it goes okay :crossedf:

    The behavior in my Secondary School was outrageous most of the time-lots of times heads of years, important people had to come in and have a shout at us.

    My Geography teacher had been completely run down by the fact he was getting interrupted every 5 minutes-you couldn't really get much worse.

    I certainly feel I could have done a lot better in Geography if the class had behaved and another persons parents complained.

    However, the behavior has been exceptional at College and I don't understand it and I have had troublemakers in my classes at College but they have behaved, which is extremely unusual for them.
    Hm yeah that does sound pretty strange

    Hahaha that would definitely be more appropriate My teacher said we can bring cake because everyone was complaining about coming in early on a Monday (and apparently all the FM classes bring food to their early lessons at my school)

    hmmm its not a teaching lesson really, its guidance :lol: basically my teacher (who btw is the nicest person in the world and is rather fit ) said it about guiding you to your future about career choices, university choices, UCAS, CV help, Finances and stuff like that and she is the person we see if we have any troubles

    She's also the psychology teacher and i was gonna do psychology ..i may have missed out there :facepalm::lol:

    there's also an edit in the post you quoted
