    ive always wondered what on earth general studies is ?? someone enlighten me plz !
    Crap, basically. The intention is to broaden our education.

    The Edexcel syllabus consists of Culture, Science and Soceity, in no particular depth or interest.

    I'm aware of someone who didn't attend a lesson all year and walked away with a B. If you've half a brain cell and are not as ignorant as an extremist religious zellot with their head burried in the sand you'll get along fine.

    if you're doing (1+0.01)^30 for example, to find the 15th coefficient of x (0.01) you press on your calculator 30nCr15

    Is that right? Something like that.

    n! means n factorial, i.e. you multiply all numbers from 1 to n.

    e.g. 4! = 1*2*3*4 = 24

    I've often wondered this myself.

    Universities lower down the league rankings sometimes accept it, and it's part of mine (and other) school's crusade to further our horizons.

    Well yes, but for us who aren't, it's frustrating and a waste of time.
