    After waking up at 7.15 every day sprinting to the other side of the town to get the bus everyday waking up late feels so good.

    Need to sort my PS and start UKCAT revision now.
    Ok that's understandable. I was staying in the hospital site, so found myself staring at my watch every morning until it was a reasonable time to go in.
    I found that soon turns into :indiff:, followed by , :cry: and as UKCAT revision goes on

    I tried emailing my first draft PS to my school tutor the reply I got was "not good enough". If it was in person I think I would have ended up swearing at him.

    I got a 'generally good'. Not too helpful since PS help in TSR ripped it apart, in a good way since now I can improve it.

    We where given booklets but they where ****. Basically just said not to copy of others and thats it. My first draft was suppose to go to our head of year but I never handed it in because I'm a rebel and I also wasan't in school. lol.

    Wow that's surprising. In my school the most helpful teacher is my economics teacher who loves me for some reason, she went to Cambridge and was trying to convince me to do economics but I never did maths so I decided against it. She seemed more dissapointed than me when she realised I never got prefect. I feel like such a teachers pet. lol.

    Haha this is so true! I've finished all the practise questions in the 600 Q book, but not timed as I just wanted to learn how to do them first. So I've now started looking at the mock exam and want to cry at how impossible the timings are for QR and VR :O

    Well our careers teacher said when we handed them in it was the only chance for him to see it. Other teachers will probably look at them if I ask nicely enough.

    I'm finding my love for QR steadily decreasing whilst AR is becoming more and more likeable.

    Yeah I kinda like AR. VR is my least favourite, I get bored half way through the paragraphs, stop concentrating then realise I've taken in zilch when trying to attempt the questions...

    Was the timing good for your test cuz the 600Q book is insane, 30 sec for evry QR question., You cant be human if you can do that!
