what are you doing in FP1 ? we was doing matrices but my teacher got bored by time we got in inverses and went ahead to some algebra or someing with alpha + beta =-b/c and alpha X Beta = a/c ?

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
7. 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

Have you sat a D1 mock yet ?

You get the reflection and rotation identities in the exam so it's not too bad and nope still have to do linear programming then I will be able to sit one

If my interviewer asks me "If you were an animal, what type of animal would you be?" Is human an acceptable answer

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
