    Sounds like you really hated Chemistry.
    Or really liked Physics.

    I think I'm doing M1 this year, I saw the syllabus and quite liked. Mann-whitney test, skewness, Normal distribution, Poisson distribution etc
    Poisson is in statistics modules. M1 is relative velocity, forces and friction, among others. Maybe you misread something?

    I need to improve on organising my working out. I feel like I'm going to lose marks for being a slob with showing work.

    Hey, :hi: There's a difference between OCR and OCR MEI, do you know exactly which one you're doing?
    OCR, most likely.

    Why, what's the difference?

    It's weird how you all started and I haven't had one lesson yet. What's it like?
    You lucky thing, how have you not started yet?

    Sixth Form is far more independent - teachers treat you more like adults, and w/ more respect.

    Workload is a LOT bigger though.

    It's a different specification, apparently it's harder

    Hi, I'm taking Maths, Chemistry and Physics from Monday! (Everyone else seems to have started already) Right now in struggling with the physics pre course maths tasks as its stuff I've never done before...
    I hope to achieve AAB (don't really care in which subject gets a B though) at a minimum.
    I aspire to be a Chemistry teacher

    If you think that's messy, you should have seen my work when I did Physics.
