    Retail Sales Advisor, I'm hoping to become an O2 guru after a while
    Awesome! Shame O2 will never compete with 3 on pricing. :ahee:

    I haven't got my rota yet but I'm assuming it will be 6 hours on Saturday, 3 hours on Thursday and 3 hours on Sunday.
    I want that

    Then again, you don't get any extra benefits as a 3 Customer - O2 have a very extensive range of perks you can exploit.

    Yeah, duh! I turned 16 on the 2nd of July, I've always looked older - had stubble at 12 ! Oh really, have you thought about applying anywhere (especially O2 )? I'm going to be working 12 hours a week, so not too much interference with school.
    I do not believe this :lol:

    Like? :ahee:

    To be fair, O2 will naturally have their advantages. 3 is just more suitable for me as unlimited tetherable 3G/4G is far more important to me when our home broadband is horrible.

    That really is similar! Any idea what you plan to do degree-wise?
    I really really really really really want do to chemistry! We had a meeting today with those hoping to go to Oxbridge, do medicine, veterinary science or dentistry (the competitive courses) and although I high doubt I'll get into Oxford, it's motivated me so much just to do well. I'm more set on Durham than Oxford but I think the experience will be good for me in terms of keeping me motivated I'd love to go to Durham though dkjlrnsdkjrnsdknf

    You?

    I'm okay with my GCSEs, changed a levels though...

    Three sciences and french!
    How did you do in your maths AS, didn't you sit it in year 11?

    If you're happy with those subjects then go for it. Are you still thinking chemistry?

    I know! I know! I'm back for good now (she says...)

    I'm taking chemistry, physics, geography and maths. I was going to take further maths but I'm immediately glad I didn't, I'm slightly overwhelmed with how much free time I don't have (and slightly ashamed to say I'm struggling a tad with C1)! To be fair though, I've signed up to a lot of extracurricular things...

    What about you?

    I've taken similar subjects to you Maths, Physics, Chemistry but Economics instead of Geography.
    This is weird... I also was about to take further maths but in the end I decided not to because of the work load; I'm struggling to revise for everything even with economics!
    I still have to sign up for extracurricular stoof aswell. Hopefully the workload will ease up and I'll have time for something.

    It's because the school gets money for how many students take it

    Well that's what my head of year says and we don't even have it as an option due to it hardly being worth anything :lol:

    Ah, that's crazy! I'm so glad I didn't take further maths though...

    In my C1 test so far (it was on completing the square and quadratics) I got 42%, although this did make me appreciate my 60% in statistics. I'm glad though because I'm a lazy student and the 42% really gave me a wake up call and it's better now than later I suppose!

    Well I'm doing the AQA Bacc so I'd have to do it anyway but it's annoying how it's pretty much worth nothing (unless combined with EPQ for the AQA Bacc or something equivalent) but then I guess it's not exactly time consuming either
