    Yeah, but that was a one off, I only have that every other Wednesday. Usually I have a couple of hours of each of my subjects.

    Ah damn, get well soon! :console: Nice! Sure thing, feel free to PM me whenever you feel like it.

    I didn't check, but probably South Africa tbh, they were batting amazingly when I last checked :lol:

    I didn't apply to Cambridge, I applied to Oxford. But nah, still nothing...should hear next week or so though after BMAT results, but I have no high hopes, I'm fairly sure I'll get rejected without interview tbh. :sadnod:

    I'd guess either should do, but I prefer you teacher's definition.



    I know right :lol:

    That sounds bloody awesome. :teeth:



    Sorry! But it was OK thanks! I only had three hours of maths yesterday, which was nice. :yep: Today, I had two frees which are loads for me (I have no lunch break/frees on most days ). You?



    Exciting times, can't wait! :woo:




    Indeed :smug: Hey, I wasn't lazy... :flute::lol: Nah, but I'm probably gonna get a rejection from Oxford next week after my BMAT results come out :sadnod: You? Same, and yeah, but I'm supporting Australia :lol: Hahaha, I wish :lol:

    Nice, but put that BMAT book away, never want to see or hear of that again :sad:

    But I can certainly get set into a cleaning routine. But when I was in that state of mind last, it was really infuriating. I was so high strung, afraid of infection all the time, being antisocial by not sharing drinks/food, double checking everything etc... But then again, I don't truly like being lazy, sigh...

    Sorry. Well have fun Toodles
    Cool. Yeah I have OCD contamination and symmetry...its not the best thing to have. I have finally learnt to sort of be okay with sharing drinks but, still getting there

    It was chemistry :eek: on 9 lectures worth of things.

    I think it went well, but at the same time I know I dropped the odd mark here and there because my mind went blank. It could've been a lot worse too!

    I mean she wasn't as bad as the start of the year.
    She used to have a tub of hand lotion/wash thing in her bag and used it nearly all the time. That is including the lessons.
    That was at start of year

    Stupid question, but how do I prove that x^3 - 3x^2 + 5 = 0 had only one root by considering turning points? It's easy, but I've forgotten.

    Firstly, it is a cubic so you should realise that it must have at least one root. Secondly, you should find the coordinates of all the turning points of the graph. For this equation, because the coefficient of the x^3 term is positive, it is sufficient to show that the y coordinates of the turning points of the graph are both positive to show that the graph only has one real root (why?).

    I just finished the interpretations one last week and handed in the first draft for investigations yesterday. The investigations are considerably harder as you have to do all the research yourself, while with the interpretations its basically a GCSE source paper. My teacher said to get an A* its probably 80% so its pretty hard. I'd say print off the mark scheme to get a good understanding on how to get a good grade
