I used to be able to do that

To be fair I haven't touched Further Maths in like 4 months, after skimming it.

6. Does anyone here do physics and know how to calculate tension?

The question says:

"A mass of 6kg is placed at the lower end of a vertical wire; the upper end is fixed to a ceiling. What is the tension of the wire a) at the lower end and b) at the upper end?"

We haven't done a formula for tension? I'll post this in another forum for physics if there is one, but I wanted to see if anyone here could help sorry

We were concerned that the school would certificate it, meaning the Fail would have to be put on our UCAS forms (not that it would have mattered, just looks slightly bad), but there was no mention of it on results day
Well that's good, at least Pft, if it's only half a GCSE (which I presume it is?) then they shouldn't really care, I wouldn't if I was them

We actually did OCR Nationals, so "technically" it was worth "4 GCSEs" if you got a Distinction. Of course, in practice that's complete bull**** (although the number of GCSE grades is sort of irrelevant anyway so I suppose it's hard to measure the practical bull****tery levels).

Never had that one, bro Only Mario Karts, and (New) Super Mario Bros, though they did always seem to call it 'new' even when it wasn't :/

That's funny, because you were here when I left

Are you sure??

Sorry for the double post, but I've been contemplating this all day...

Further maths.
?
Hi, im doing maths and further maths along with a science, language and essay subject (dont want to be too specific) and so far ive found the workload absolutely fine. I know its only been 2/3 weeks but ive found that f maths isnt really harder than the stuff you cover for single maths, its just more. The main problem however would be:can you cope with the loss of your frees? I only have 2 frees a week and have had to give one of those up to practi language speaking so I guess the main question is are you willing to sacrafice them? Another thing to think about is tou can always try it and easily drop it if you find its not for you
