    Some in school, some I did myself. I'll see about that but forget S3 and S4:lol:

    Make sure you watch Clannad: After Story (basically S2)
    (Original post by Bude8)
    Yup, S2 is a must watch! Though I actually cried at the end of S1 too - but S2 was on a completely different level
    :lol: Will do!

    oh yeah and Bath is a lovely place... be sure to visit Fudge Kitchen where they do the most ORGASMIC fudge... unless you don't like fudge
    I should probably be a bit ashamed to admit this, but I have no idea what fudge exactly is.

    Fudge is like... Well fudge. I'd compare it to toffee but it's quite different. It's just a sweet, like it has form but it's quite hard? It's hard to explain lol

    Ok, I don't know what toffee is exactly either. I always think these 2 are very similar to caramel, but I know what caramel is :lol:

    Hmmmm...

    You're not missing out

    Toffee is very sticky.
    Fudge has a shape and isn't sticky sticky, it's like... Can stick to teeth but will keep shape.

    Either way, wouldn't recommend.

    Fudge is a type of Western confectionery, which is usually soft, sweet, and rich. It is made by mixing sugar, butter, and milk, heating it to the soft-ball stage at 240 °F(116 °C), and then beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency. (sauce: Wikipedia)

    Yup, I am. It's not as bad as people make it out to be - at least I don't think it is anyway. I'm 100% convinced A levelers get more homework set but we have quite a lot of coursework to do, so we only need to work consistently. 1/5 nights I have had no homework to do at all. Aside from that, some IB questions are very tricky

    I think in terms of HW, it can be somewhat intermittent... but what I always have to do is make notes... and more and some more, with "wider" reading (which is probably the case for my fellow IB compatriots anyway)...
    but what I find weird is that you have to do one subject from each group (or something like that)... so you have to do a humanities or english or whatever...

    So, to be very general, it's kind of like 3AS and 3A2 subjects... right?
    What's the alternative for English then?

    Basically yeah. English is kind of my First Language which is Group 1, so there's no alternative

    I'd love to be able to drop it but I can't, it's definitely my least favourite subject
