    Does anyone else go a little crazy buying practically all the textbooks available for their course? I have 6 textbooks for one subject. I just feel like I can get a better grade if I do this because I can select information out of one book that another doesn't have etc, and I found them cheap on eBay so it's not like they're costing me lots :mmm:

    How's IB? Strssful?
    It's been good so far! But the IB2 (second year IB) are telling me it's awful!
    Will be worth it though, everyone who did IB at our year said they ultimately didn't regret it.
    Not sure if I told you guys but there was at our school who did IB. Got into Cambridge for MML and she said it's so easy compared to IB2, while some of her friends are tearing their hair out due to workload stress :s

    but honestly, the A levelers get more work than I do atm...

    Why not? Everyone's different. If he's doing 7 (not including the 4 general studies-esque ones), he may very well be the sort of person than can easily deal with it.

    I'm doing 6 A Levels + a couple of actually "soft" subjects (Creative Writing/General Studies) and I do almost no work :mmm:
    :rofl: I did the same as you and did no work for it either still got an A How you finding it?
    Either way that post was made to combat tsr stereotype. Not everyone does, nor has the time and I made it so not everyone believes tsr literally.
    If I did believe tsr literally....actually lets not go into that, tsr has some messed up things :lol:

    I feel like I have some talent, wouldn't go so far as to say I'm clever, but enough to scrape 4 A's this year.

    But.. I'm just horribly unmotivated. Like the work I wanted to begin a week ago, I just started today. For the duration of the first half term I thought to myself "oh it doesn't matter I'll do it/catch up during half term"... I've done very little of that, and now, I don't think I'll have time to either.

    Curse you, past me...

    Honestly the only thing I'm having trouble with is Statistics, but I maintain that's because it's not real maths, and I don't really bother with it in lessons
