    Yeah, not gonna do much work for it, I'm gonna prioritise my other subjects, but if I get a good grade, well hey! It's not too bad actually, I'm with Edexcel and at my school we have some kinda super class... There's 6 of us and no one below grade 8...
    Yeah! True.

    Oooh, that sounds crazy! What instrument do you play? I wish I could play instruments

    That's what happened to a friend last year - I think he finished at something like half five!:rolleyes:
    Yeah I didn't finish until 5:30 either! And that was with only a 10 minute break between exams - I say break, they didn't even let us leave our desks. :unimpressed:
    Must say, I'm very jealous of you taking Music A Level. There are so many subjects I wanted to take but couldn't.

    Yep, and I was ill on the day as well.
    I do Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths and Geography. I was going to take French as my 5th, but it clashed with Physics! What are you hoping to take at university?

    Those subjects sound intense! I'm torn between music performance at a conservatoire or something more sciencey! You?

    People make their kids learn instruments from an early age. I'm going to make my children learn maths from early on. My brother's 6 and he can solve linear equations, I was taught that in year 7...

    I have more exams after the half term than before which is great because 4 of the easiest ones are before then the trickier ones I will be able go over in half term. 5 days between D1 and M2 is great, much needed.

    Taught him surds today. It's half term next week so I might teach him linear graphs, let him practice everything, then move onto quadratics this summer.

    Sounds like a plan.
    Anyway, I plan to have my kids at SATs standard by the time they start school. Then GCSE by 10. A Level by 14.

    There's this Chinese girl who can do logs to 2dp in her head. She's going to Cambridge for Mathematics LOL
    She got a gold in the Physics Olympiad (top 50 in country) and she got full marks in the Senior Maths Challenge. But she doesn't speak. It'd be awesome if my child was that clever haha.

    French I do!
    Aww, I was about to say snap. Why did you drop Geography?

    I was so p***** with my teachers last year - I took French GCSE in Year 10, and begged them to do the AS in Year 11 but they wouldn't let me, and made me take a different course that was basically equivalent in content! I was so annoyed. I try to keep it up by reading parallel text stories (and not cheating too much...).

    You did A Level Maths early, right?

    It's manageable, I guess. :rolleyes: How are you finding your A Levels?
    Music performance sounds scary! I'm thinking Natural Science for university, but I'm not sure what I want to specialise in. I'm really interested in the whole science-behind-music type thing, but I like Chemistry a lot too. Although there's still a tiny part of me saying just to completely change tack and do a music production degree instead!

    I loveeeeeee Chemistry! I'm applying for Natural Sciences at Cambridge. I'm going to the Pembroke College open day on 17/04, might be worth checking out?
