    Sociology from biology? wat.

    And mathematicians have a God complex because it's the hardest subject to be an exceptional mathematician requires a severely intelligent person. We have to be honest with ourselves, they are the best. All praise tho mathematicians! It is them who we adore!
    It's not objectively the hardest subject.

    Here's a pro tip for life; don't make absurd claims which make you look stupid when you can't adequately support them.

    It's hard to be the best in any subject

    So what did you do then?
    Chemistry, physics, maths. But in terms of what I was actually studying, chemistry and physics. I think we can all agree that A level maths is in dire need of a remodel. Perhaps more integration and some geometry? Seriously, the most advanced question in core 3 june 2013 was sohcahtoa..

    I don't have time for further maths but it does look interesting... Maybe I should have chosen it, I just didn't expect core maths to be so easy and boring. I picked the wrong subjects and I realized that after my AS year because I had somewhat of a late aptitude for the sciences.

    But at least I didn't go for the humanities, OH GOD THE HORROR!
    2/3 of my A levels are humanities. My university course specifies that they prefer humanities which is WHY I chose them. Them subjects being History and Sociology, 2 subjects which have a rather large amount of content. So explain why humanities are so bad?

    What's wrong with humanities? Is History a soft subject in your opinion?
    History is a great subject actually. I take it back. Most of the humanities.

    Clearly you're not that good if you couldn't handle FM on top of that. :lol:

    Obviously tricky subjects, but if maths is so easy I see no reason why you couldn't have taken on something more challenging as well. Unless you're just arrogant and giving it all that, pretending that stuff is too easy for you to stroke your complex ego.

    Them subjects being History and Sociology,
    I agree with you, but you would make a better case if you didn't say stuff like that.

    The current OP was a bit late in changing the countdown in the title. Miracle Day changed it on the stroke of midnight or thereabouts.

    I already told you that I made the wrong decision when picking my subjects. I had a friend a year above me who was constantly doing further maths homework every darn day. I just couldn't be bothered with that ****. I know a lot of further maths from my own interests outside of school anyway. I don't need a measly A level certificate to show that I can pass *cough* ace a standardized exam designed for most people. Don't be silly. I was also expecting physics to have some decent maths.. Oh how wrong I was... A levels are poor.

    I'm assuming that means you found psychology hard?

    I love telling people that I took maths, physics, chemistry, psychology and english lit AS Levels...and that psychology was the one I found hardest

    Actually, you do need a certificate before you can make stupid claims like "I could ace further maths". Otherwise we could just tell anybody we could do anything, right?

    FM gets quite tricky in places, especially since most people do it as a fourth subject. Just because you think you could do it doesn't mean you actually could, to any degree of success. You're making a fool of yourself making such statements.

    I know! The examiners are so pedantic and the content is huge!
