    :O no way .... A2 apparently just disproves all you learnt at AS :lol:



    Yeah Spanish is awesome, which is why it always confused me why french is the international language for many things :confused: when more countries speak English or Spanish :confused:
    Well, I prefer French to Spanish. I still love Spanish but French has much more flair and class about it. I think French is more an international language because a lot of the Spanish speaking countries are quite poor and don't really have much of an economic status. Plus, France itself is 'superior' to Spain, it has a stronger economy, more business, higher population and a bigger tourist industry. Spain itself isn't that valuable unless you consider Mexico, Argentina etc. who all are growing countries with potential. So yeah, on a American scale, Spanish is incredibly useful... but in Europe/Africa/Asia you're best off sticking with French and perhaps Russian or German too.

    Another reason for me to drop it then! :lol:

    I'm really not all that interested in Chemistry, the AS course looks a lot more interesting than A2 though, so I'm dropping it after a year!
    I love chemistry and Biology I'll be doing both to A2 :love: plus i need them for medicine :lol: I'm aiming to get an A* in Maths and at least chemistry or biology :yep:

    I actually like sixth form, most of the teachers treat us like we're grown ups & they treat the younger years with less respect. I can get used to this *lies back* xP

    Ah yes, very helpful if you like them and are doing medicine

    I'm keeping myself away from medicine, but it's never interested me to be honest, I'm more of a Physics guy :lol:

    Same, our classes are smaller and they're more informal in a way and the teachers are far more approachable, which helps with the difficulty!

    Nice to hear! There wasn't much info given to us, mainly warm ups relating to the topic to get us in the spirit of things. Now that I think about it, I don't even know what units we're doing in Math and they've already mentioned uni though

    I finally don't get pushed around in the corridors xD Wearing your own clothes in the halls is like a badge of honor *looks slick* :cool:
