    I would prefer having a Monday off no one likes going in first day back of the week.
    Strangely I do have a few free periods but my lessons are so cramped in together fml.

    Anyone bothering to do Duke of Edinburgh?

    Is anyone doing Maths? I had a lesson today and it got me thinking whether or not I should change to History. Would it beneficial to stick with it as it will be worthwhile, or just change anyway?

    Hi, i would try sticking with it for a couple more lessons and also talk to your teacher especially if you begin to struggle.

    I personally was unsure if i should do Physics but i am going to stick with it in the belief after a while i'll start picking it up I also wanted to drop further maths but me teacher won't allow me until after a month

    Yes my new school is amazing the teachers are actually really good.

    First lesson I had was double maths, it was not that bad just covering linear and quadratic graphs from gcse. In maths a level I am doing C1,C2 and S1 for AS and C3,C4 and M1 for A2.

    Next I had double further maths wow this lesson was amazing lol so interesting. we didn't start with FP1 instead were doing D1 and wow such a fascinating module. I'm doing D1,D2 and FP1 for AS and S2,M2 and FP2 for A2.

    Chemistry was ok i guess just brushing up on our gcse knowledge on balancing equations.

    overall AMAZING DAY

    We did quick sorting and bubble sorting numbers in ascending and descending order. We also did a bit of flow charts.

    Well, it took just 8 hours of lesson time to realise that 5 A-Levels was a terrible, terrible idea.

    But I'm just too obstinate to give them up!

    Anyone feel like looking at a stupidly easy simplification question?

    4xy -y (x - y)

    is the answer y^2 + 4xy -yx? or can you treat -yx as a -xy?

    Maths, Further Maths, English Lit, French, History. All great subjects, but also all quite heavy on the workload front.

    What did you take? How are you finding the workload?

    To all you people who are doing Maths, do you get to choose which modules you do? Or do you get told what to do? Because I'll be honest, I'm so not up for Mechanics... Whereas Decision looks pretty cool.
    My sixth form is making us do decision.
