Grammar schools aren't commonplace anymore. There are only like 100 left in the country.

Yesss, ahaha. MASSIVE change from going to a grammar school that I never ever had to pay for to this overpriced private school that barely offers anything. :erm:
I take it you don't go here:



(I know it's in Singapore, but still :ahee:)

Yo. Long time no see! Looks like I have a lot of catching up to do



But why the **** am I in the Spanish section of the box? I don't even take Spanish! :lol:
What exams did you take,this June?I haven't seen you for ages-I think I may have the best results yet this August,I'm hoping for A*s all around but I would be so disappointed if my A* in English Language got moderated down and I haven't spent enough time on this new thread yet,I'm way down the posting leaderboard.I'm also extremely nervous to find out whether I have aced Science or failed again.To add to this,does anyone know any pure maths jobs? because I'm struggling to work out what job I want but I know I want a pure maths job,after graduating with a maths degree.

Isn't a grammar school the same as a private school though or are they completely different school types?-please explain the difference,if they are indeed different because I always thought they were synonyms of each other.

Nah, the buildings here look heaps cooler ;D
We don't have a pool though, we use the one at the golf course that we're in haha.

Oh god, one thing I hate about here though, there are so many lizards and snakes! I swear like the first week I started here I saw a snake .. And then we had a fire drill in term two and when I was lining up one of the teachers nudged me and pointed out the snake slithering up the tree next to me. I almost freaking died. Doesn't help that whenever a science teacher finds a snake they put it in a tank at the entrance of the science block for a week so students can study it .. I always have to shut my eyes and hope I don't bang into anything haha.

I couldn't live in Australia because it has so many wild animals,never mind snakes what about crocodiles?-is it safe to go near water?At least it would be nice and peaceful in Australia though because there wouldn't be many people because it has such a low population density,compared to the UK.

Yeah haha, that's kind of the reason I'm not going with my mum when she's moving over there. Just terrified of all wildlife that isn't cats or plants lol. You don't really find that many crocs in like .. beaches and stuff, but there are definitely sharks, and shellfish that don't look dangerous but are kind of poisonous :P Aus still has heaps of people though, New Zealand only has 4.4mil people.

Ahahahahahaha :rofl: Safe to go near water... :rofl2: There aren't crocodiles in urban water systems. NO ONE lives in rural areas there. Not to say that one doesn't swim down the river every now and again :dontknow: but if you're stupid enough to go near it then no, you shouldn't live in Australia. Crocodiles are old news. What you need look out for is the ****ing fish. Those *******s will kill you. My friend's sister once needed to be taken away by ambulance after stepping on a rockfish (very poisonous spines). You can't swim in the ocean in many places because of the deadly jellyfish, either I lived in a place where it wasn't a problem, so go me :ahee:

Population density is really more or less the same as in England. There's such a large area of uninhabitable land that is still counted in statistics, but everyone lives in towns or cities. It would be ridiculous to not.

We had a green snake living in our primary school for a few months. I always tried to see it :awesome: Eventually they removed it though

Yeah those blighters will **** you up :ahee:

Seriously, the wildlife is absolutely no reason to not move to Australia. That fact that it sucks is though Although I don't know what it would be like with friends :emo:

Urmmm... Well, it'd take about half an hour probably without traffic but there would be so more... I'd rather stay in my **** state school... But I can achieve things there...

Yeah, that's the difference, they just have an entry requirement, for example one place is 6 A*-B which I thought was so low with an A in maths and B in science... I am jealous that there aren't private schools!

Even with the uninhabited land,the population density is still much much lower,20 million people live in Australia roughly,compared to 60 million in the UK,with the area of Australia being 31 times bigger than the UK.Why would you swim in the sea anyway?-you could swept away or worse drown that is extremely dangerous,wherever you are in the world.
