    I'm studying Maths, Further Maths and Physics, currently working towards AS levels.

    Maths Modules;

    C1, C2, D1, FP1, M1, S1.

    AQA board.

    My goals this year are to get above 90% UMS on the above modules.

    Goals for next year, 3A*, and Cambridge Engineering/Maths which means taking Step it the latter.

    Strengths I have;
    I've already been at University and I'm pretty good at working for long periods of time without losing focus. I'm very organised. The maths that I have done (GCSE many years ago), has come back to me extremely quickly. Im very interested in physics and I really enjoy maths, so studying doesn't generally feel like a chore.

    Weaknesses;
    Not at College so having to self teach, with a tutor once a week.
    Although some stuff has come back to me, UIm still a little rusty on some things. Practice is helping this though.
    More of a psychological thing, but I sometimes feel overwhelmed by all of the new knowledge I'm gaining. Although this may be down to trying to go too quickly through the books as I'm used to being a fast learner.
