    Yeah we've just finished that alpha beta stuff with quadratics. First we did complex numbers, then graphs of rational functions (which is dislike), then matrices and matrix transformation. That's 5/11 chapters on AQA not bad going

    You people are lucky, a-levels are simple compared to university.
    Enjoy the simplicity while it lasts, before things become intensely complicated and stressful!

    matrix transformation is horrible when it's in sine and cosine form, i can do it by x and y easily though :lol:

    Yep, got my silver that I was aiming for One of the maths teachers marked every single paper (and there were a LOT) overnight.

    Haven't done probability since year 9 though, and we don't do any D modules, so didn't get any of those marks
