    There's very little psychological research happening in the UK, and its a shame we're actually lagging behind. Very true, all in all, it was a waste of time. Did they find anything significant?
    Not as far as I remember, they were just commenting on things like the fact that it was the girls that did all the cooking, boys the killing of the squirrel or whatever it was. They didn't say too much, they wanted people to still watch the series I guess

    I'm not sure if I should take S1 or M2 at A2. I was very good at M1 and got predicted 95+ UMS and got 90 in my mocks but I got 65 UMS on the real thing but still got an A overall. What should I do?

    Well, I can't say much about M2, only that its probably a lot tougher than M1, but S1 proved horrid at first but that's coming from someone who was predicted a C in it and got an A! If I were you, do S1! :yep:

    Judging by the quality of some of the rest of the american TV I saw, it might actually get some quite good ratings.... It seems the only good programs they have we've already stolen from them, or them from us

    That's very true. I went to Florida last year, and all they had on TV were Spanish sitcoms and shows. Their programmes aren't that great tbh. Although adventure time, the normal show and total adventure action were great anomalies

    Yeah I'm applying for very similar reasons.

    Nope but I can tell you how I found it and specific details when I do come back from a visit though.
    Cheers.

    How does the A* work I know you need 80% UMS in AS and 90 in A2 but what if you don't get that, say if you get 78% UMS in AS will you need 92% UMS to get an A*?

    You need to average 80% across the whole A level and get at least 90% in A2 modules. So 60% in AS and 100% at A2 would technically give you A*.
    This is except maths where you need average 80% across all modules and 90% average in C3 and 4

    Cool Are you really a girl? I wouldn't mind working part time in a piano factory or music shop. I get a pleasure climax each time I enter Dawson's Music shop in Manchester . Some languages? Are you adept at learning them, then?
    Yep, I've always been a lady :lol: That's awesome! Well I love languages and I'm trilingual so I've always wanted to learn new languages I guess. I don't find it challenging either so why not? This summer I've been focusing on Latin and Spanish
