    OCR MEI, wbu?
    So far it's fine, currently I'm doing S1 and C1, C1 is great and S1 is fine too, just a lil more trickier although quite fun if you get it

    Physics has been fun so far tbh
    Oh right ok! Im doing EdExcel!

    My teacher told me that the exam board 'MEI' are for those who do not have a teacher or something like that ahaha!

    Oh so your only starting off with 2 modules? In my school I'm given 1 maths teacher who teaches 3 of my lessons for C1 and will be doing C2, C3 and C4 and then I have 2 further maths teachers teaching 5 of my lessons. One of them is teaching me S1 up until end of November and then will start teaching M1 until April, the other teacher is teaching me D1 up until the end of November and will be teaching me FP1 after up until April!
    My maths teacher is teaching us C1 up until end of November and then doing C2 until April!

    Sorry that sounds super confusing so hopefully you get it ahaha

    Yh it's going really well! S1 is a module that's super easy to lose marks on and my FM teacher said that his students tend to divert from liking statistics to mechanics after a few months because of how easy it is to lose marks in the stats modules ahaha! Im super excited to start M1 lol I love mechanics

    I'm not too sure! Defo hoping to go uni, I do like geog and media though so maybe a job which combines them both? Idk, kinda wish my college did a level drama though😢 what are your plans? Everyone's so much more planned out in life than me😂

    Hii, please add me to the aspiring lawyers list, and the Cambridge list!

    Anyway; I'm taking History (AQA Russia and British Politics), Politics (Edexcel), Economics (AQA). And I'd love to go to study law at Cambridge and become a barrister/lawyer/civil servant!
    If anyone is taking the same subjects and spec. as me, I'd love to get to know you so we could help each other out!

    OCR MEI is the hardest exam board, I wish I did Edexcel

    Well, we're gonna do C1 and S1 till October I believe, but overall this year I'm doing C1, C2, S1, M1, D1, FP1.

    Yeah, makes sense I have 2 teachers, one for the pure modules and one for applied modules

    Yep, you can easily lose marks on S1 I'm quite excited for M1 too as I'm doing Physics and Mechanics is really related to it

    Yh I'm happy I'm not doing MEI ahaha!

    Yay we're doing the same modules just saying D1 starts off with computer science maths which is super easy and fun like binary search, bubble sort, trace tables etc (that's for my exam board but shouldn't be too different for yours)!

    Haha yh mechanics will help a lot! Apparently it's been shown that it increases your physics grade by quite a few doing mechanics maths

    Haha, well I'm sure you'll ace your a levels then! I don't really have the same intelligence as the average TSR user but I do want to work hard to prove myself wrong as I have no confidence about myself in lessons but I'm going to pull that around!😬

    Medicine seems super interesting but if my hearts not set on it than I'd rather not waste a place and take someone's spot when they genuinely want to help people's lives and want to be a doctor!
