    I had to drop gcse further maths because the hardness of it was causing me stress, never mind what A-Level further maths would be like. Hats off to you for doing it!

    Did CIE IGCSE.

    Mathematics - A*
    Additional Mathematics - A*
    Chemistry - A*
    Biology - A*
    Physics A*
    First Language English - A*
    French - A*
    ICT - A*

    - Introduce yourself

    Most of my friends call me Thirsty (because it rhymes with my surname, nasty minded reader ). I am Half British Half Ghanaian. About 6"3 - 6"5 in height.

    - What are your hobbies and interests?

    I am an avid football fan (Hala Madrid!). I can script in Python (barely). I swim as well, play table tennis, skateboard, play basketball, play volleyball, rollerblade and do some other stuff. I love mathematics and it's applications as well as chemistry and physics.

    - What subjects are you planning to take?

    Mathematics
    Further Maths
    Chemistry
    Physics
    Might write STEP I this year.

    - Your favourite subject(s)?

    Probably Mathematics.

    - Your ideal future occupation?

    Here is a tough one. My parents want me to become a Chemical Engineer and I want to become a Mathematician, possibly branching into research or becoming an actuary.

    My A Levels keep my choices open but let us see what will happen.

    I am an Oxbridge hopeful (Cambridge, specifically Trinity C, all the way!)

    Nice to meet you all

    Hello I'm Caitlin

    I'm planning on taking chemistry, French, biology and English literature with hopes of being a psychiatrist. These four were my favourite subjects in GCSE which is why I'm continuing them onto A level!

    After a few weeks of doing A levels I don't think people will care about what you wear, but yeah I feel the same
    Very true. I've spent way too long choosing my outfit for tomorrow 😂

    Had my first day today. Physics teacher has cringey humour. Maths teacher acts like Benedict Cumberbatch in 'The Imitation Game'. Biology teacher was pretty bubbly. Chemistry teacher has a Scottish accent.

    Yeah. I can already do C1-2 and get 100%, and do FP 1 M1 and M2 and get 90%+. I know portions of C3 and C4. Just need to polish up on C3-4, M1 and M2. Did these modules last academic year; spent most of my vacation de-stressing. If I had been half assed I would have already finished the AS syllablus for Maths and FM and could have focused full time on the BMO. Seems like I will have to multitask

    - Introduce yourself

    Hi, I'm Meg. I'm an AS student from Wales and have been pretty much awful at all things revision for my entire life. Hoping that maybe this time I'll actually study properly.

    - What are your hobbies and interests?

    I'm pretty much a class a geek when it comes to hobbies. I'm a big video game play (bioshock, zelda, skyrim, bioware, horror games etc.) and an avid horror fan. On top of that I'm a reader and am a bit of a comic book fan (don't diss Hawkeye, that's a warning ). I pretty much anti-social

    - What subjects are you planning to take?

    I'm taking Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Comp Sci. As well as the obligatory Welsh Bacc (which is awful by the way).

    - Your favourite subject(s)?

    I absolutely adore physics, I could go on for hours about quarks and leptons if no one stopped me. Second to that is probably maths, followed by chemistry. Comp sci definitely comes last, sadly my college didn't offer further maths at a different time to my other subjects.

    - Your ideal future occupation?

    Definitely physics. I can't imagine doing much else with my life. Probably some sort of research, would love to work at CERN while also doing some of my own projects. Although that's probably a little unrealistic.

    My dream is to get into Oxford to study Physics. And after an overall awful last year involving several family break downs and bereavements I'm finally ready to work my butt off to get in.

    Nice to meet you all

    Hey man, not been on for a while! Just started my sixthform today, we started with electron configuration (orbitals) in Chemistry. In Maths we're on surds and integration, i got some trapezium rule homework. I have geography and graphic communication tomorrow ☺
