    I think he was just trying to belittle all you A-Level students discussing the logistics of getting an A* in Maths/Further :lol:
    :erm: no one was saying it was hard. If anything we were talking about making it harder...

    No one claimed to be a maths genius anyway so...

    I'm belittled :hide:

    Mechanics is the easiest - so logical and tidy (and completely unrepresentative of reality). Stats, on the other hand, is just number crunching and so dull.
    I agree with this! I dropped a load of marks in M2 but still way prefer the mechanics to the stats or the pure! Probably why I'm applying for physics...!

    Me? :rofl:

    1) I'm in year eleven
    2) I'm not applying for Maths
    3) I probably won't apply to Oxford

    So I don't think so

    I can't really say without knowing you, but maybe you need to make sure that you put more work into topics that you don't understand so well or something like that
