    Hey, facepalm-through-the-head guy!

    How've you been?
    Bonjour.

    Erm, alright thanks, I guess. I'm been good recently.. But I'm not too happy with college at all.. I really don't enjoy it. I don't think A Levels are for me. I'm going to stick at it this year, then depending on my results, I might just drop out and get a job somewhere like Sainsbury's for the time being. My band has some pretty neat stuff coming up so hopefully that will take off.. Sounds stupid gambling my education for hopes in being in a decent band, but unfortunately that's a risk I'm willing to take haha.

    How have you and all the other people in this thread been?

    You know that thing where people say 'GCSEs don't prepare you well enough for A-levels'? I can totally sympathise with that now. xD I've had such little motivation to do any independent work this term. It's shocking. The fact that still I can get away with As on my report isn't helping - I would much rather I got Bs and Cs so that I can "wake up", so to speak.

    At this rate, Bs and Cs are probably what I'll be getting next August. Hopefully I'll be able to motivate myself to catch up on all the independent learning stuff over Christmas hol's.

    It's funny cuz at the start of the year in this very thread I made some sort of comment about how helpful/useful this thread will be for working hard at A levels. Now I'm complaining here I'm not doing enough for them.

    I must say I didn't exactly like maths last year, but this year it has changed, easily my favourite subject and it's actually fun at times :lol: Completed C1/2 and M1, which were fun and not too hard, however parts of C3 and M2 are now getting pretty challenging!

    So far we've been mainly doing differentiation of composites and exponentials, and also a lot of the trig proofs and addition formulas. It's all a step up from the stuff you get in C2, but manageable. However a few questions we have had are pretty tough!
