    Don't matter then, I was hoping to miraculously find someone who is going to the same college as me next year, but I'm far more east than you :cool:
    I'm in Cambridgshire, but that's not that much further east

    Would you say you have many friends?
    Quite a few actually. Although, I only have 6 really good friends. I think people are attracted to my sarcastic personality amongst other qualities I possess :laugh:
    What about you?

    Ah awesome, yeah in general chemistry I found to be a rather challenging gcse in relation to the easier bio. Ah well done on the english thoroughly deserved. Id be happy to get grades like that for my exams. Of mice and men was the only pleasant english exam. And that sounds like an A to me off the top of my head. Im hoping for straight a*s in science. What science coursework did you find the hardest and how did you fair in the core and additional modules? And thanks for the a level info....some have said wjec is easier for a level chem
    Well I found the Chemistry Coursework the hardest no surprise there, i think the one I did was the Enthalpy of Neutralisation that was boring. Also the core and additional modules went ok but im annoyed that I got 89 on C4,C5,C6.
