    :woo:

    I don't know about you, but I personally really disliked fm this year. AS was all well and good, but A2.... Ergh :argh:
    Same! I found FP1 really interesting, even though it was tricky. FP2/3 were just too hard for me. I wouldn't say I am naturally good at maths, I have to work really hard at it. There were parts where I thought "this is some cool maths" but mostly I just struggled.

    Damn. Where's the fun in that?
    I know! When I went for my interview at Southampton I asked the current students whether I needed to bring a wetsuit or anything, they kind of laughed, I was like okay then

    Universities have had our results for sometime now, there was an article on the telegraph showing that universities said they had a lot of spaces on clearing this year. Then again that maybe because not enough people applied for certain courses this year?

    I thought this was obvious! I wouldn't be surprised if people get their firm even if they miss the requirements by a grade or two! (Which is what I am counting on!) haha

    I totally agree. FP1 was good! Really enjoyed it Thought 'Oh hey, I won't drop this for A2 after all!' ... FP4 I hated this module so so much. FP3 was okay-ish, but FP4...
    It was too much of a struggle really

    Omg, FP4?? What exam board is that? I did Edexcel and we only have FP1/2/3.

    I hated FP3 the most. There was so much integration, which is a topic I don't particularly enjoy

    See I don't mind intergration too much, so it wasn't as bad as FP4 that was all vectors/matrices.

    AQA!

    Hey, how did you find the f322 exam?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Not too good All my exams were crammed around that exam so I couldn't prepare as much as I wanted to, plus I didn't have time to finish it :cry: Disastrous really

    So far, I'm trying to occupy my mind with as many things as possible (thank you Steam summer sale)

    Aside from that, I tend to detach myself from my firm choice as much as possible, to lessen the potential disappointment


    Good luck everybody on results day

    Don't worry, Edexcel cover the same approximate amount of content in C1-4 and FP1-3 as AQA do in C1-4 and FP1-4. The existence of FP4 is actually more of a negative for the AQA board than a positive.

    The nearer results day gets, the worse I think I have done.

    Exactly
    At first I predicted I would get AABC
    Now I am thinking ABCD if I am lucky :bricks:
