    Welcome to TSR! Where not doing A Level Maths makes you a second-class citizen

    Yeah I think I'll forget it as soon as I leave the exam hall XD Yeah our whole class and the rest of the year hates her! She's been here quite a while but for years people have been complaining about her, but apparently she might be fired :3 Haha I love getting teachers to hate me XD
    shame she's gonna be fired too late ;D

    The exam is in two months, which is just about enough time to learn it if you're really on it
    it'll cost £26 and I have no money :P also I have 10 exams and I'm already stressed to the max ;D

    Chemistry: As a child, I’d envision real-life reactions occurring at the molecular level. It was around the age of 6 that I’d read my first science book and realized that the world as I knew it was comprised of atoms. From then, when observing things like flames I tried to imagine the interactions of these particles. This became the basis of my present fascination of Chemistry.
    This sounds like the opening of a personal statement. And a bad one at that.

    Makes me wonder what use is maths and further maths for bio? Wouldn't Chemistry of been more useful?
    There's statistical testing in A2 biology which S1/S2 have been great help with. Also, in the first year of my degree, we study Taylor series which I will have already done in FP2! I agree, chemistry is more useful though. I wish I'd taken it, although I am doing okay without it so far!

    Ahh post me some FP3 matrix questions if you've got time, I'd love to have a crack!
    Here's a link about how to do 3x3 inverses to get you started, this is VERY simplified though and I couldn't have learnt it from this alone but it just outlines the stuff that's different from 2x2!

    i want to go into medicine, whats maths got to do with that?
    Are you in AS year or lower? I'm guessing so because if you can't see the links between maths and chemistry A-Levels at the very least, I'm confused. Maths as an A-Level is in no way compulsory for a medicine degree, but it assists you with certain calculations it is necessary to perform in your exams and, as I said, improves problem solving skills as a whole.

    Ah fair enough, I forget about Stats. Don't worry about Chemistry; you've got your offer that's what matters , although why go on to study Biology when you can go on to do Maths? You seem great at it

    Thanks, I'll look over it after I finish Proof by Induction

    Sorry, I haven't applied yet as I'm still in yr 12
    I can see why you love mechanics so much , since it's vital to engineering going over M2 would definitely help! Whats your firm/insurance?
