    Meh, I think I'd rather have a balanced two years. All that pressure on the first year is a bit unnecessary
    Do you think I chose to have it this way?

    Still, I think I'm doing fine now, and I'll be extremely relaxed next year (most of my uni offers will be effectively unconditional), so I think it was worth it in the end!

    I wish I was in the position of not having to focus on anything but Maths, however considering my last Chemistry exam is on the 19th of June that's clearly not the case. :-/

    My A2 has involved so much more than AS. At AS, I did four AS subjects (Maths, Further, Physics, Business) and that was it. At A2, I've done 3 A2 levels, one entire A Level, plus a ton of work for STEP. I'm going to be lost when my final exam is over, as I'll suddenly have absolutely nothing to do.
    Wow... imagine what it would of been like for you if there were no Jan exams! :eek: 12 maths exams within a period of a month + STEP!

    Aren't you selfteaching? What school would enter their students for C1-C4 + others in January of AS :lol:

    In that case you would probably get a slightly harder offer: S - II, 1 - III

    I did as well but in year 10 I hated it, but in year 11 it was more interesting hippocrates, Galen, William Harvey, Florey and Chain all that jazz I think

    Plus two Physics exams. The Physics is thankfully pretty much a guaranteed A* though along with Maths provided no absolutely horrendous mess ups (Just need an A in each exam for the A*) and I have an A* in Further Maths guaranteed. The Additional Further Maths is the one which isn't pretty safe.

    My course is condensed (1.5 years) as you know.

    FP2, FP3 are only available in June, so I have to take those now. C1-C4 early because I needed the prior knowledge for FP2 and FP3.

    The level of secondary school maths here is slightly higher than AS Maths, and I did IGCSE Additional maths, so we all handled it fairly well.

    And yes, I have F.Maths class of 30~ people, all with the same knowledge as me in year 12 and about 10 or so are at least as good as me

    Hopefully not though I suspect if I got that offer, I'd still probably get accepted even with 1,1

    Can you find a common factor of (2^x)^2 - 6(2^x) ?
    2^x !!!

    But how do you know to make a quadratic. Cant I use some logs rules?

    You could, but you'd probably lose a solution (2x=0) if you did that, plus it wouldn't work if you had more than two terms in the equation.

    Just be on the lookout for equations in the form of a(\mathrm{something})^2 + b(\mathrm{something}) + c, it's pretty obvious really.

    Was that the paper with the circle inside the sector? If so that question was the reason - only about 2% of candidates managed it.

    Would it be quite risky to say I'm only just starting my C3 revision for the exam on the 13th? :-/
