    ahhhh going through an FP1 paper tomorrow should also hopefully finish M2 next week so i can do an exam over half term, there is yet hope :lol:
    Is that all 3 finished then? I got 61 on an FP1 paper so not too bad. We've done about half of M2 but circular motion seems boring and long

    haha I had to fight so hard for 5 :x I was going to go behind the careers advisor's back and do art and French on the side, but she caught me out and told those teachers not to enter me, which is kinda good looking back x)
    I was motivated to do 5 but when my year head told me I couldn't do 5 I lost the motivation a bit and didn't fight it at all really

    I don't do circular motion in MEI ? hasn't been in M1 or M2

    yep next week i will have finished all 3, in FP1 we just have to proof by induction, which apparently is easy and just remembering a long process i got 48/72 on one before ( though we skipped 12 marks because we haven't done Proof by induction yet :-) )

    Proof by induction is FP2(?) on AQA I think and moments are pretty annoying in M2 also

    Meant to be a sad face :lol:

    Can't say I'd know
    OCR are worst for mark schemes, they just seem to slip random bits in, it's like it for chem too! Hi guys btw, just found this, to think we could be fighting for the same place next year!

    Well my schools science results have improved quite a bit since switching to OCR from AQA. I might start doing some science papers soon but we have only done like 40% of unit 1 chem, need to start doing some of it myself if I wanna get a decent grade
    Fair enough!

    We've done unit 1, doing unit 2 now.

    Ha ha! I'm 17 and studying Maths and the three sciences, was annoyingly forced on day 1 to drop history because they weren't allowing people to do five! My lifelong ambition is to study medicine! Loathing S1 revision at the moment!

    We've done unit 2 pretty much just a few bits left. The organic chemistry stuff is alright but energy and resources I find a bit dreary

    Yeah I wasn't arguing that fact just saying I don't have to do it:cool:. Easiest part of FP1 is series, they give you the formulae so it's just rearrange for some free marks

    so dropping history wasn't really of detriment to your future that much then?

    I sometimes think I should have been a humanities guy instead of a science guy but Maths is definitely my favourite subject
