    i'd go to musuem's, rock-climbing and into city to wonder around but i'm tight on cash - anyone know ne place where tehre are vacancies? i'll do practically anything...i'm that desparate...apart from working with meat or cleaning toilets...anything other than those two, give me a bellow if anyone is interested people
    I guess I should be glad that I have a job but then again when I think about it I feel more sorry for myself than anything - it's really the lowest of the low!

    As for A-Level maths, it isn't really too difficult provided you don't fall behind and thus make sure you know everything for the exam. If you do all the questions in the heinemann textbooks then do past papers and solomon papers then you should get a grade A without too much hassle.
    Perhaps you'll wish you had done further maths though by the time you've finished A2 maths

    Ah then I can see your point! It does seem a bit inflexible of them. They should know that as you applied to top universities you're more than capable of taking responsiblity for your education.
    do you think you got all 90's in the maths mods gaz? or mostly 100%'s? i think i got 1 100%, 3 90's and 1 80 and one 70 (p6), lol

    yourself?

    screw that! - i revised whole furtehr maths in the days preceding the exams - like self taught P6 in three day and P4 in a day and m4 in a day...etc...i've got a really fab short term memory:cool: - working all year would have been useless for me

    did the same with my other A2's lol - Phys in 2 days and geog in two...but there was too much content to cover for geog so it may backfire..then again, i dont need a grade in it

    Hopefully i'l get 3 or 4 100's and 2 or 3 in the 90's. I expect the ones in the 90's to be D2 and P6 which are hard to predict. I'm more pleased with how the AEA went than the A-Levels exams though.
    100s aren't really anything special though as you might not necessarily have got 100 raw marks and the difference between 90 and 100 doesn't necessarily distinguish between mathematical abilities.

    not aiming for many 100's - i'm the lst person that deserves it, lol - A's are enough for me, be it 90% or 100.

    Wow. I bet it's really nice to be able to do that. However, I didn't do particuarly well in my GCSEs or AS levels so I decided after my AS exams that I wouldn't go into an exam underprepared again. I regret my previous lack of work ethic a lot.

    Heh. Stuff the A-Level questions, i'd almost sell my soul to be able to do step 3 questions in some sort of acceptable time.
    At least your current lack of work didn't earn you something as shocking as a B in GCSE maths
