    I literally see you everywhere on the forum but had no idea you're in year 13, but besides that, maths, yuck
    You too, what year did you think I was in aha? Surely all the music makes up for it?

    Medicine is equally yucky

    Depending on the learning difficulty and the severity, it could make a massive difference
    What are learning difficulties? How do they arise? Can they be treated? I'm curious with psychology because you really can't prove their existence, but their evident if that makes sense.

    Either way, I'm pretty sure if the child in question is being helped at home by a sibling and not a specialist the extent to which their learning is hindered can't be too bad and that they can probably understand sweets.

    What does that mean though? Why does she do that? If she knows her numbers in order then perhaps you're not asking clearly? :dontknow:

    She can speak her numbers, but she can't do addition

    I guess I could take that as a compliment? Never really listened to her that much, more of a Caro Emerald person I'd have to say

    Yeah, don't think I could ever cope with all the blood and body stuff doctors have to deal with.

    Are those all genuine questions? I get what you're saying, but that's almost like questioning the existence of physical disabilities.

    You'd be surprised. And you can't rely on sweets, especially as they grow up, its a very condescending way of handling everything. How would you go about English and literacy then?

    Yeah they are genuine questions

    Well not really, you can't fake physical disabilities as easily as mental ones. When people try to act as if they can't feel anything for example pretending to be paralysed there are ways of finding out if it's actually present or not. We can't see mental abilities or really measure them in a diagnostic way (or so I believe, maybe brain patterns do show it but I'm obviously way too young to know about that)

    The child in question is 5 years old, so I don't think they'd consider it condescending. If they were able to perceive something as condescending I think they'd handle basic additions which would use sweets to be taught.

    It depends on what is to be taught to them, so I can't answer that.

    In January (unit 1s):
    Biology: A (108/120)
    Chemistry: A (93/100)
    Psychology: B (78/100)

    In June (unit 2s):
    Biology: A (110/120)
    Chemistry: A (125/140)
    Psychology: A (90/100)

    So I did better in June than I did January in all subjects bar chemistry though they're all very similar
    Everyone seems to be misunderstanding what did your college give you as current grades after most of Term 1.

    I didn't mean it in an offensive way never even heard of them haha (at least I hope its a them)

    In all fairness, medicine is such a broad field, there are so many specialities, many of which don't involve blood and stuff

    Oh right, well no one can tell you how they arise. There are many different explanations such as biological, psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioural etc. Psychologists are always in disagreement about which one is more appropriate but therapies will more likely be based on biological theories or psychodynamic, but whether any mental illness can be 'cured' I doubt it, symptoms may be alleviated though. If you're interested in this stuff, maybe read around it, I volunteer with teens with learning difficulties and it puts a lot into perspective.

    Well you're looking specifically at a loss of nervous reactions, but there are many physical disabilities that one could fake, just like it could be easy to hide some. Mental illness diagnostics is actually a reliable (though inaccurate imo) way of catagorising mental illnesses based on the disease model of illnesses (essentially like physical disabilities). I don't want to go into it all now, but based on where you are, there are different standards used including ISM-IV and DSM10(I believe its 10 afaik). Basically, you have to meet certain criteria to be classified as mentally ill but I'm all honesty, if you look at the definition of psychopathology (DSN, FFA and DIMH) them you could say we all suffer from a mental illness
    I wasn't referring to her at this stave, but more into her later life. You can't rely on sweets to teach a 20 year old. From my experience, it varies for different people, as everyone in their own right is an individual, and by nature will learn differently to others.

    omg you spoilered your sig...i love you

    and in answer to your question....pretty much the same
    The Moderators forced me to spoiler it because it was too big but I don't think it was.
    I was asking about your current grades given to you by your college a couple of weeks into the 2nd half term(after most of Term 1).

    Oh you mean our report grades? I was given A*AAB (thought the A* was a bit weird though) A* in maths, B in chemistry. And I got AAAA overall, so yeah, not exactly grades apart

    It's a her aha, kind of jazzy 1930s style. If you listen to the radio I can guarantee you'll have heard at least a couple of her songs before

    Yeah I know that it's a very exciting field, I just needed something to attempt to be mean to you about after your maths insult to me Have you heard anything back from the universities you applied to yet?

    Use cards that have numbers on them, and the + sign and + sign and = sign.

    Get her to add it from there.

    eg
    1+ 2 = 3 (make her find the 3 card) Maybe have pictures of 3 sweets on the card as well.

    Hope this helps

    At least I know now I don't often listen to the radio, so I doubt I would have.

    Haha I knew what you were doing I just personally hate maths, even though I loved it at GCSE and even though I'm taking it at A2 but there's nothing wrong if other people disagree with me. I've had one offer for biomedical sciences with a sandwich year from Kent, otherwise, nope. How about you?

    I have got A*A*AB report grades.I was supposed to get them sent as a report but I didn't receive it but I got it off my tutor.How I have got an A* for Further Maths and an A for Maths is beyond me and I just think my teachers for Maths didn't want to give out A* grades, when you actually can't achieve them.

    Congrats on the grades, seems like you're adjusting to A-levels well. Yeah it seems a bit odd they did that, but then again, I kind of agree with your maths teacher, there's no point in suggesting you're working to an A* standard, as it isn't possible at A

    It looks as if the people on here and other places have been exaggeratijng there really isn't a jump from GCSE to AS but Mechanics takes a bit to adjust to and I get some extensive Geography homework that requires a lot of time but apart from Geography the homework level is about the same as well.
