    I had something weird when I was a kid. Not learning diffiulties as such and someone thought I had dyspraxia.. but I dunno, I think it's more that as a kid I did not listen to much or retain information at times.. it was very strange. Doesn't affect me now at all but anyway, I took some swimming lessons then at school and never really improved. Can't get the hang of floating either :lol:
    hmmm i guess just go to your local pool and experiment a bit and if you drown then the lifeguards will help you.... floating may be an issue though but try to improve cause you never know when you could end up like in a river

    I've done that loads of times, I think I'll have to look into learning properly on the weekends or something, because you're right.. but I dunno, I can't really learn it myself unless I google how to and stuff.

    maybe you could try and go to adult classes like cause then will be less awkward or even hire some private person for lessons if you struggle cause you might need some speicialist help ...


    you don't want to end up drunkingly falling into the bath lake and not being able to get out

    I don't have learning difficulties apart from when it comes to driving, I suppose.. maybe I am just slower than other people, but ya know.. normal distribution and all of that. I've never properly had lessons at a suitable age. But I'll look into it and see how it goes, I can just talk to the guy or girl who does it and they'll organise or recommend whatever is most appropriate, you know

    Yes... fat chance of me ever getting that drunk. The real danger in Bath is the river in the town - sadly people have lost their lives that way, and there's like a procedure that you have to follow if someone falls in involving emergency alarms around the river and stuff like that.

    I'm the same, my parents can both drive from tests a while back but don't have a car of their own. A friend was telling me that that, combined with the fact that learning to drive in London is a lot different to where he learnt (in a very rural part of England, population in the 10s of thousands) so it puts me (us, if you live in a big city too ) at a disadvantage so ya know.. some consolation, I suppose

    But road signs you get used to.. some are just what they say on the tin ya know, and you can take your theory before learning how to drive.

    Gears are confusing too but.. you get used to it again me though, I struggle to do two things at once... :hide:

    ahh at least I'm not the only one whose parents don't drive- feel like I'm living in the dark ages sometimes when I'm walking everywhere... and yh i guess as long as i get a good teacher then it won't be that hard but i can see myself making silly mistakes and also i want to drive really fast but thats not really safe

    Do you think there's a chance grade boundaries will be lower because it's a new system and they'll want to prove that it works (even though the new system was to combat grade inflation)?

    Walk everywhere? Reasonable if everything is like 20 mins away I guess.. no buses?

    Funny you should say that, one of the things my instructor said to me was that I put too much pressure and had too high standards and that it was okay to make mistakes as long as I was learning. Having said that, I made the same mistakes over and over again (not being able to stop at the right point of traffic lights/junctions etc.. bloody annoying. but anyway, don't have too high standards of yourself

    There's a summer idea, go karting or something or an F1 experience or something like that.

    :lol: you were late when your journey takes a fairly consistent amount of time each day :borat:

    Yeah.. I don't think you will

    -I'm doing AS. I've taken Further Maths, Maths, Chemistry, French & Psychology as well as compulsory General Studies.
    -I'm hoping to go to Durham, Warwick, Birmingham, York or ICL to study Chemistry/Maths.
    -Well, for Chemistry: AAA-AAA*, AAB-ABB & for Mathematics: A*A*A-A*AA (A* being for Maths).
    -I don't remember my predicted grades for AS but ideally I'd like an A in at least one of my subjects. Nothing lower than a grade D.
    -I think General Studies & Psychology went well. French Listening was quite hard (Edexcel) especially the last part but the rest of French was good. Further Maths went OK, Maths was alright actually- OCR Core 2 Maths was hard, the trig questions at the end were impossible! Chemistry, however, one of the hardest papers EVER (Unit 1 was an absolute joke!) so I'm hoping for low grade boundaries.
    -I feel nervous for this results day-don't know what to expect in terms of grades, I could be really surprised or really disappointed so I'm hoping that my exams went well and that I get the grades I deserve in order to carry on onto A2.
