    What do they tell you at GCSE?
    Electrons are positioned in an orbit around the atom, like planets in the solar system, but with a maximum per "shell".

    But actually, there's shells and subshells and they take all different shapes, and that's why you get the maxima that you do!

    And then you find out that there are no shells and subshells, and it's actually a big cloud of probability for where an electron is likely to appear in the atom...

    Yes, I would have sent it for a remark myself If they hadn't offered. But they lied

    Back in reception/year 1 my teacher got us counting down from 10 to 0 afterwards I asked what comes next and she told me there are no numbers smaller than 0. Was in a bad mood the rest of the day until my brother told me there are negative numbers

    Yeah, it was GCSE English Lang which is pretty important. I was 2 marks from a B which sucks as it's usually the guiding by Unis. Basically could of saved me a lot of trouble, as had to retake this year.

    I know, they are pigs.

    "This topic hasn't come up in 5 years so it will definitely be in the paper"
    Slightly similar; "this topic has come up for the last 3 years so it will definitely come up this year "

    I've just finished year 12. I meant retake the exam(not the year )because I wouldn't get into many Unis with a C for the courses that I want.

    I really don't remember much from school (primary school is nothing but a blur, secondary school is starting to fade away too). The one thing they didn't fib about was that school would be some of the best years of your life. Okay, not everyone has a perfect experience at the time and I didn't have one either but I dunno. Because of that it was more true for 6th form. But I digress
