    *looks around for a black hole expectantly*

    That's a nice range of subjects you got there, what course did you apply for?

    Thanks, good luck to you too!
    I ended up applying for geography, UCL is my firm AAA (hopefully I'll get it!)

    And yeh, I know what you're most probably thinking about my choice of course

    Something along the lines of:
    But what will you even do with a geography degree?
    You take further maths and you're not taking maths a uni?
    You're clever enough to do well in further maths but are taking geography at university?
    Do you get lots of field trips then?

    Or the most common reply is generally along the lines of...

    Well, at least you'll be an expert a colouring in :unimpressed:

    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.
    if i could do further maths, anyone could

    Edexcel isn't really regarded as the hardest maths board maybe that's why you're finding it so easy

    Meh. If there was any drastic or even notable difference in difficulty, I'm sure universities would attempt to discriminate between the boards when making the important, and in some cases as some people like to claim, 'life determining', decision that is university offers. And wtf is MEI? LOL

    IMO (note), Geography is a hodge podge of so many silly little things. You should have applied for Geology, but i'm sure you will do fine. Heh.

    how did you find June C3?
    The one that got all of the silly and undeserved commotion? Obviously different but tbh, just another exam. But I'll give you the last question. Although it was ridiculously easy behind all of the pointless bull**** like the distances and speeds (just sohcahtoa), it was pretty mean. I worked it out using mechanics then crossed all of that crap out when i realized that there was a one step method. meh I guess.
