    When are the exam dates usually released?
    I actually rang The number you can find it with some googling and asked this direct question, because due to exam clashes if i sit step this year it may affect the modules i sit so was important to fine out.

    They told me they were hoping to have the dates confirmed by the end of the year. So Zacken's answer seems about right.

    If your only doing maths and physics it always misses(unless some next random board). However Chem/econ etc thennyou could easily be clashed.

    I am doing maths Further maths and then either statistics A level or additional further maths.

    But what I may do is Maths further maths Statistics and then an AS in additional further maths depends on how fast I am able to go etc, and also one exam clashes if there are any.

    its a tough one because AQA statistics does not have a specific textbook and I had to find a book which covers the material but is not specifically written for AQA. However I am probably in the same situation for the further Mechanics units which I may sit anyway but would have to sit if i did additional further maths.

    I have no tutor I am all self taught, which makes my A level choices limited because English or philosophy etc would not have a way of knowing if good essay or not without been marked. maths just practice past exam papers and you know where you stand.

    Hopefully, I've already got a couple of Maths clashes I think

    Have you looked at Physics? It should be relatively easy to self-teach. Talk to Zacken, he self-studied all of his exams.

    don't you need to do coursework for Psychics? and do an assessed experiment?

    also if I am doing quite a few mechanics units wouldn't it look bad as in a bit cheeky because overlap of material in mechanics modules and in psychics modules. This is why If I do the statistics A level with AQA I wouldn't then sit statistics modules if/when doing maths exams with Excel because surely that doesn't look good?

    Happens to a lot of people every year, it's because of how many maths modules there are.

    A circle is defined as the locus of a point equidistant from a fixed point.

    Is the sphere like the surface at a constant distance from a central point in any Euclidean space(so not just in 3D space).

    Well the definition I've just given you makes sense to me - I can visualise that.

    I think they like to call those 'balls'. Which is fine by me.
    A ball contains the insides though...

    For any metric space in general, that is.

    unit sphere in Re^3 is equal to the set

    {(x,y,z)∈R3∣x^2+y^2+z^2=1}



    the unit ball in Re^3 is equal to the set
    {(x,y,z)∈R3∣x^2+y^2+z^2≤1} .
