Fairly new to this, but i took WJEC Maths, Economics, Physics and Chemistry . There doesn't seem to be many people from Wales here doing my subjects with the same exam board though :/
That may be so but I'll help you as much as I can with Maths and Physics even though I'm with different boards. Just quote me

There are certainly a few characters on there, don't think I've ever seen a normal person on that show XD

It's a *****, but there could be good points, but I haven't found any yet!
6. Okay so I had Maths today. All is fine, I'm doing Decision.

It didn't even feel like Maths at all though, we started some work on graphs.
7. In A Level Sciences, an Answer in an experiment is rounded to 3 significant figures. Why?

Is it to improve the reliability or validity of the experiment?
^ Can't remember which one of the two - anyone care to help?

Same as in maths, it's just the default length of a shortened answer instead of writing out all the decimal numbers etc.

I have not learned this yet but using my understanding of the 2 words I'd say validity

The only one I can think of is it saves the government money, not really a plus side for us!
11. Do any of you guys that use Moodle know how to access your college email at home?

They're just putting education second to saving a bit of money, it's stupid.
13. I've bitten the bullet and gone for a remark, I'm just worried it'll drop a silly amount and I'll lose my A

That's why I'm now supporting UKIP

Aha thank ya!
16. Sixth Form is wearing me out already. German, Maths and Geography are fine, but History seems like hard work. I love History, but there is so much of background knowledge and extra reading required, most of it based on politics. I've borrowed some books from the library so I should be okay I just need TSR to stop distracting me....

You do Decision as part of Maths? That's quite unusual to be honest, most people I know do either Statistics or Mechanics, those I know who are doing Decision all seem to have done it for Further Maths

10 books?? Woah you must have a TARDIS for a bag. And some serious strength. Is that for English, or do you really need that many textbooks? I'm starting to feel glad I only need to carry round three folders and three textbooks at most.
Lucky you. I have five textbooks, an exercise book for Geography, a notebook, a plastic folder and apparently I need a portable CD player for German too.

Yep. I have three Maths lessons a week. One of them I do Decision, and the other two I do Core 1, and I'll eventually move onto Core 2.

Out of everyone I've spoken to at my college, I seem to be one of the only people doing Decision. All the people that took Further Maths have to do Mechanics, and all the Physicists are doing Mechanics too. Nobody is doing Stats (that I know of).

5 textbooks+ 5 notebooks
That's insane. I'm glad I don't have to deal with all that or I might have had to pay for a locker this year!!
