    Totalitarian Ideology for unit 1 and Sixties Social Revolution for unit 2 What about you?
    Tsarist Russia 1885-1917 and Britain 1902-1918: The Impact of New Liberalism. I wanted to do the unit on Henry 8th and the dissolution of the monasteries though, we did out controlled assessment on it for GCSE and I found in fascinating! The Sixties Revolution sounds really interesting too, as someone who wishes to have lived during that decade

    I think I'm going to develop an addiction to collecting records...

    A whole week? Why did you need a whole week? Surely a day is enough. Hm, maybe guys are them same, but I don't know, I can sort of start creating 'banter' with a guy straight away, whereas I don't really want to come across as a **** to a girl...

    Yeah I FINALLY start tomorrow. You?
    Nothing wrong with that! I have a record player and a cassette player in my room alongside my CD player, I’m very retro. I volunteer at a charity shop and it’s great because I have first pick of the records, and they’re all absolute bargains

    We didn’t need a whole week, it wasn’t fair. A whole week including ‘alternative sports day’ and player games in our forms, it was a bit of a waste to be honest, I would have rather spent the whole week in lessons (we had three days of lessons). Don’t put the words ‘dick’ and ‘come’ in the same sentence, please. I’m immature. Yeah I guess, I personally just want to come across as well as possible to everyone WOO YAY FOR YOU! Excited?

    It is, but I completely clear out my Sundays of any studying which is fine for me ^_^
    Yep I am doing self-taught bio, but I go to the bio teachers whenever I need help with something although this website I use is great! http://asbiology101.wordpress.com/
    Wow, that's completely unfair :/ - it really only needs about an hour of teaching a week if it's similar to general studies
    Nooo, don't buy them - use the internet! If you're going to buy anything, buy a couple of revision guides for each subject but otherwise keep nagging the librarian until you get better books XD

    Aww, well that’s good. I was considering moving to a Sixth Form which doesn’t offer German and self-studying it, but there are absolutely no evening classes in the area available and there are no German teachers at the school either. Sad times.
    I think it is, yes; I have a friend doing it and she says it’s an hour a week with the head teacher. You’d think they’d timetable it all a bit better :/ I will nag her then, just for you

    Might begin writing my Prefect-application ooh, how wonderful.
    You have prefects?! Oooh, that’s snazzy! Best of luck with your letter

    Don't be most people on TSR would probably agree that General Studies/Critical Thinking are a waste of time-they aren't respected at all by virtually all universities these subjects make Business look a facilitating subject and they are really just league table points boosters for Colleges.
    There does generally seem to be that attitude, but my head of year claims it’s quite valued by RG universities as an extra A-level; I can imagine that realistically it wouldn’t make much of an effect on an application, but it would be quite interesting and probably useful for an application to a humanities degree as further evidence of essay-writing/arguing skills

    I still need to get a record player... Ah man that must be cool. There's not a lot of older stuff that I'd like to get on vinyl though.

    To be fair that sounds alright, I wouldn't mind doing that. Hahahah, sorry. Well, so do I, but hopefully you know what I mean. Oh yeah I'm buzzing!

    Seems we're on the extremes I love having 999 other people in my year though, it's perfect!
    That would be awesome. You could wear clothes over again and nobody would notice because there's so many of you! :hmmm:

    Although, I think it's kinda cute having like 6 people in some of my classes

Haha, well I'm just an awkward person me Yes, I know what you mean. What are you looking most forward to (other than having frees )?

    I have a tip for English language - we have to keep a scrapbook of articles and real-life texts that we annotate in preparation for the exam :-)

    I really want to, I just don't have the money. Hit me, I'm pretty good when it comes to music, I know a lot (and I mean a lot) of stuff old and new.

    Errmmm.. Not too sure really, just getting back into a routine I guess, and having something to do. You?

    I have 21 hours of AS lessons a week, not including an hour of enrichment, plus an hour each of French and Spanish conversation and an hour and a half of German on a thursday afternoon. I only have 2 frees (I'm doing five - six - subjects :P )
    This week I have 3 free periods, I have 2 tomorrow haha. It's annoying because I have 1 lesson, 1 free, 1 lesson, another free then a lesson aha. At our school we have to use 2 free's over 2 weeks as 'study time', but I've decided I'm using all of mine for studying, it seems like a sensible option

    To make things worse, you know what the 'stuff' going inside is? Mice (the teacher chose it). In this demented essay I have addressed the possibility of compressing the mice and possibly removing limbs to maximize capacity... what am I thinking xD

    You could just replace the dense plasma in the middle with, erm, dense mice, this way the gravitational pull will be intact, I'm not sure if the sun will still 'burn' though. You could always make an all new mice based sun Could you also argue that the high pressure, breaking up the atomic structure of the mice cells, would just leave the building blocks for all the mice and could technically equal just one supersized mouse?

    Oh and although they want a serious answer(s), it is merely just to get you thinking about theoretic physics, how there isn't a definite answer and it's mostly guesswork.
    That sounds like a lot more fun than what we're doing! (lenses, the single most boring topic in any subject ever!)

    I doubt the fusion would continue if you replaced the Hydrogen/Helium with mice, as it's only enough pressure for the Hydrogen fusing, and mice are made of larger organic molecules and all that stuff. Strange topic, but leave a lot of room for making your own theories about it, I'm sure whatever you say it can't exactly be proved wrong! :lol:

    I think I'll be mainly studying in my frees too - although there's one day where I have 2 ghost lessons, a free and a Spanish conversation lesson - not bad at all!!
