    I was told I couldn't study AS Chemistry due to the class being over-subscribed but today I got told I could join the class, so now I'm studying Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths! I think I'm still in a small state of shock at studying AS Maths. I never thought I would be capable of studying it. Is anyone else extremely excited about studying their options? I know I am but by the looks on the faces of my fellow classmates it would seem they all count down the minutes until they get to leave, and I can't help but wonder why they chose the subject if they don't enjoy it?!

    Just a quick question to those who do edexcel maths or any math board at all, i was forced to do decision maths instead of mechanics and i can't change it. I have no idea on what to expect from decision maths, any input please?
    A lot of Decision Maths isn't really Maths and Mechanics Modules are much more exciting and useful for University.Decision Maths is based on Algorithms and learning about how computers solve Maths problems and you will be doing a lot of drawings of arrows which make up webs but there is some easy stuff like the bubble sort algorithm, which consists of working out the smallest number out of two numbers and swapping them depending on which number is the smallest.

    I have got a really long day at College tomorrow because I have had my tutorial added to the day at 4.30pm.I have to get a minibus to St.Peters at 9.00 am and my tutorial finishes 5.30pm-I will try to arrive at College for 8.15am so that if there is a problem with the buses then I will still get there on time and this allows me to do some extra studying, which really helped me learn some key words for Geography and allowed me to understand the Hydrological Cycle better.

    It's weird though, I felt so motivated for the first time in my school life and when I got told I had to do 4 I just felt all that motivation disappear

    Is it just me or has everyone got a ton of homework from AS History. I hate to admit it but the jump in terms
    of workload is huge. I've got 1,000 word essay to finish up as summer work I kinda expect this to be the norm.

    Has anybody here ordered their AS Subject Books yet?

    Well you think you've got it bad, I appear to have jinxed myself earlier on in the thread by saying I didn't want to do mechanics, because I was just talking to my mate who did Maths today, and he did mechanics. I am not happy.

    This is probably a terrible picture, but here is my almost ruined timetable in all it's glory.

    [PIC]

    It's showing my college name.. Oh well. #yolo 'n' that.
    Mine is much more intense :/

    As long as it isn't put in text it can't leave a digital footprint! Plus I was more entertained by the fact that you use a pink highlighter

    A little bit of coursework never hurt anybody mate.
    Science
    97/100 in Biology exam, D in the controlled assessment. TWICE. Wut.

    Eng lang
    CC in assessments, A in exam

    eng lit.
    D in assessment, BBB in exams

    Coursework didn't hurt me, it knocked me into a coma.

    On a lighter note I don't have to pay for remarks!

    That's okay, I'm not sure we've covered it either. My teacher's new and I'm not sure if he's ever taught before, let alone this particular course so I'm not sure if he realises that we can't do that question :confused:

    I'm not doing maths or sciences but before in school I used to count down the minutes till the end of lessons but now I'm in year 12 I look at my watch and am like oh gosh it's nearly end of the lesson already. I love my subjects and my lessons seem to go so fast!

    Nope Apparently they're not sure how many people are doing Physics so they don't know if they have enough textbooks or if they have to order more, and they don't want some people to have them and others not to. Although, one of the other classes has textbooks, which doesn't really make sense

    Plan for today was to do all of my homework for tomorrow.

    Turns out I can't do it because it's all on Moodle and I didn't log in to Moodle at college.

    Tomorrow is my second day, and I am already unbelievably grateful I have a free Period 1 so I can do homework.
