    Examsolutions is a life saver! Also the mechanics videos can be used for physics, and I have used them to great success. Khan Academy is almost as good but doesn't have videos on a lot of things because it's not tailored to British specifications.

    As for books, I only used the exam board textbooks every so often last year for questions, but to be honest there's so much for maths online that if you're anything like me, you won't use it. I've bought a CGP book this year though, because... I love CGP. And I think it may well help me as A2 is tougher.

    Actually, TSR is great for maths. There are a LOT of people on here that can help you with it, on here, on the maths section, if you ask a question someone will always be around and able to help.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.
    Thank you! I came across examsolutions on youtube while I was trying to teach myself to complete the square, I found ukmathsteacher to be good too but the videos are lesson-length long but they're thorough and tailored to MEI (I think).

    But how do you start talking about English if no one starts?
    I just started one, me and someone else was talking about Wuthering Heights and then one thing just leads to another!

    Maybe just start off by asking what texts are you studying for your A2 units, and then take it from there....?

    *raises hand*

    I agree.
    Sorry, only just got this! I went to Swansea on Friday and have only come back to England aha. (Went for the Open Day, not just randomly aha).

    And I'm guessing you are taking English Lit at A-level? What texts do you have to study that is compulsory? Do you like any of them?

    I just managed to get through Enduring Love....... Ergh, can't stand that! And now we're onto Wuthering Heights and I'm just crawling to get through it. It's really annoying that my Sixth Form doesn't allow us to pick our own coursework texts (unless you are stupidly smart and get like 190-200 UMS points in AS!)

    Exactly. Not enough humanities students on this forum in general. What subjects do you take by the way?
    Yeah I think that too! I wonder why?! Maybe it's cause when someone gets stuck, it's hard to give an answer because it mostly has to be in an essay like-form answer and not a simple equation like maths. Maybe.

    I take English Language, English Literature and Philosophy & Ethics (dropped History for AS) ERGH, history was the bain of my life aha.

    How about you, what subjects do you study?

    No problem, how was Swansea?

    We're doing Jane Eyre, Enduring Love, Doctor Faustus, Frankenstein, The White Devil and The Bloody Chamber. I love TBC, not so keen on Jane Eyre. The rest I haven't read. Is Enduring Love really that bad? I love Wuthering Heights, but its definitely an acquired taste

    That's really stupid of your sixth form. The whole point of the coursework is that it's your own choice.

    That's probably the problem, essays are pretty hard to remark.

    Haha you're like my friend. She takes the same subjects as you (replace English language with Spanish), she even dropped History too, complaining it was too much coursework. I take History, English Literature and Fine Art. This is the worst year since I'm bombarded with coursework in all my subjects - I've handed in 2 first drafts already -_-

    Btw, what books are you studying for English lit?

    Bit of a stupid question, but when you are talking to teachers about the possibility of bumping your prediction up, what is a sensible starting / addressing line ?
    The 'relationship' between my maths teacher and I is already as awkward as it is and i imagine any conversation would end quickly xD

    So lucky, my biology teachers were always checking if we had the study so it had to be done (rather sooner than later).
