    The last week of term is looking to be horrible :sad: 3 deadlines and about 2/3 summative course tests :cry2:

    Thursday isn't looking much better with an essay deadline, vaccination and a chemistry test

    university is hard work :erm:

    It's fine honestly, I would be devastated if it went down so the feelings neutral Nope everything is going full steam ahead, just looked at my reference... It captures exactly what Cambridge and other unis want in a nice way!

    Sent it off to my ucas corodinator and she should send my reference off tonight - then UCAS will probably send it sometime next week, I'm thinking Monday

    Thanks!
    Hmm...no idea, but you could try Edexcel's website? I think they list them there :yep:

    Damn What are you doing right now in FM?
    I'll check it
    Well I started with three classes. Four periods of Fp1-3, 1 period of D1 and 3 periods of S2,3. I dropped the 3 periods of S2,S3 to do music.
    In my core class, we finished Fp1 on Tuesday and did a mock today. We should be starting Fp2 on Monday.
    In my D1 class, we've done algorithms, quick sort, bubble sort, binning, kruskle (something like that) algorithm, prim's algorithm and we did Prim's matrix last week.

    Good!

    Ah I see! We're not doing things chronologically in FP or Decision modules. In FP, we've pretty much covered FP2, a bit of FP3 and most of FP1. In the Decision section, we only have a lesson a week (thank goodness! ) so we haven't done as much as you. :nah: We've pretty much covered all of M2 too now and are about to start M3.

    Ah I see. We did do Fp2 series as well and I know bits and pieces from my own curiosity but nothing else seemed to be common between the modules so we concentrated on Fp1. We may jump between Fp2 and Fp3, my teacher has said. To have completed Fp2, Fp1 and M2 is insanely quick-your mathematicians must collectively be at a greater aptitude! I think the people doing M2 and S2 are aiming to finish it at the end of this term!

    Yeah, about the same, although I did a section 1 paper yesterday and scored 3.8 for some reason :rofl: Hopefully it was just a bad day though! Taking the day off today to get some work done for it (no important lessons anyway, this is far more important atm. ).
    Neither have I tbh...but I've heard that as long as you answer all parts to the question, no matter how badly you answer it, you'll score at least 3...and that's good enough for Imperial. Also, have you read Medical Ethics: A Very Short Introduction by Tony Hope? It's a very good (and short) book to help you with section 3 ethics questions IMO :yep:
    I'm worried i'm not doing enough work for it now...

    I've ordered it off Amazon, it looks good

    Yeah I suppose, I've being told by Pembroke that my exact average for m and fm (92.5%) is the average, but 95%+ is usually the average successful applicant so I don't know
    Oh cool! where else are you applying then? I can only assume without STEP a place like Bristol or Durham perhaps? (two of my unis )
    Was chem really that bad then ?

    Ah cool nice to meet you fellow mathmo :awesome:

    Well u got bristol right. my others are oxford warwick imperial and lse... lool well i didnt think my maths was amazing compared to alot of the people on here and with a fairly low ums on chem compared to what they expect (87) i figured it was a waste of an application so i thgouht id give oxford a shot. the rest were above 90 though -.- (100,100,94,94)
    Ah I see still thought it would've being worth a go but if you like Oxford just as much then that is good .

    Nice choices, I'm applying for Bristol and Warwick out of those and then Bath as my last one

    Hope we both get offers!
