    Oh, strange. I remember in my secondary school they did 50 minute lessons though - the timetable got so confusing for everyone.

    I do know of a friend whose college give her 3/4 hour lessons sometimes on regular course (i.e. not "creative" ones), madness.
    The timetable is confusing! But then again, that might just be because this year is the first year I've been on a two-week timetable so it's harder to remember.

    Really? That's madness! How did she cope? :eek:

    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?
    My aim is Medicine, but it's also a super super competitive course and I have no idea if I'll manage to get in. I can always hope though personally I prefer Cambridge over Oxford, but then that's just me... I don't expect to get in though, I don't even know if I'll apply, it depends on results, work experience, etc. I'm also looking at Nottingham, Bristol, Newcastle and Queens, amongst others.

    Ngl at first I thought you were him, and then when I realised he'd been banned for while I thought he'd made a different account to use :laugh:

    Yeah that's kind of my take on Oxford, I'm just daydreaming at the moment. Cambridge is much more beautiful but I don't fancy the Natural Sciences course

    I'll only apply to Oxford if I get all As at AS and at least two high As at that. I'm definitely thinking of applying to Bristol, Durham and potentially Bath. Again, this all depends on grades. If I don't do as well as I hope then I'll have to consider others...

    It breaks my heart how Exeter doesn't offer chemistry though, Exeter is such a beautiful city!

    I have a Lever Arch file for each subject in different colours haha
    I live quite close to sixth form (10 minutes) so at lunch i take some lever arch files home, drop them off, and take back the ones i need for the afternoon lessons, so it works well

    What's everyones timetables like?
    I have Monday mornings and Friday afternoons off, so good!

    We're not. The new head of sixth form says we have to stay in school during our frees and that they're not actually frees, they're study periods - dem's the rules :mad:

    Sorry, I didn't see that you had replied.
    Aren't the wallets getting really full/heavy? that's a good idea though because it will help you later on in seeing the different sections. I'll probably have to use file dividers for mine.
    They're not that heavy really. With one of my physics classes, I just stick sheets into my exercise book so I don't really put much in the wallets, same with maths. For most other subjects, I use it to store homework so that I don't forget it, or important sheets {like my chemistry one has a periodic table and the rules of solubility in it}. But I take some out, like I'll use it to keep my homework in, then once I get it handed back, I take it home and leave it in another folder there. Once we've started doing multiple units per subject I'll probably just take that unit in and leave the other at home until I need it to revise.

    Does anyone understand how to work this out?

    In the production of sulphuric acid sulphur dioxide is converted to sulphur trioxide by

    reaction with the oxygen in the air. What volume of air (assume 20% of the air is oxygen)

    would be needed to produce 150 cm3 of sulphur trioxide? Assume complete conversion of

    sulphur dioxide to sulphur trioxide.

    Yeah that's kind of my take on Oxford, I'm just daydreaming at the moment. Cambridge is much more beautiful but I don't fancy the Natural Sciences course

    I'll only apply to Oxford if I get all As at AS and at least two high As at that. I'm definitely thinking of applying to Bristol, Durham and potentially Bath. Again, this all depends on grades. If I don't do as well as I hope then I'll have to consider others...

    I really LOVE the look of Natural Science :ahee: It's why I want to apply to Cambridge (in addition to the fact that Cambridge is otherwise ****ing awesome ).
