    Never been on this site in my life until a few days ago. Only been back in the UK since Christmas. I'd never heard of this site before.

    You are a bit paranoid aren't you? I see your posts going around like a mother hen on here. A little too wrapped up in this for someone on the other side of 30.
    My mistake. We've had a bit of a glut of adults taking 3 Maths A levels over a few months to start university this autumn who seem to enjoy telling teenagers that they're not clever.

    You'll probably get along well with them if you're looking for TSR friends:

    to be completely honest the hardest and well respected a levels are. math, physics, biology, chemistry, computer science, history, English lang and maybe literarture. other than them a levels the others really depend on the university. but the one I chosen are the one all universities like all universities like. also it depends on the course

    oh yeah I forgot. further math is haard. but to make it easy to as level math first to good in it and next year when you are doing a2 math take as further math and everything is actually really easy. my cousing done this. C in math as level and B overall. further math as level was A and a2 was A overall. he did three years in sixthform. he wanted to go Cambridge or oxford so you probably can guess the rest.

    Chemistry is the hardest of my subjects, i do biology, chemistry, physics and maths
    I'm thinking of taking the same options next year so I just wanted to ask how you are finding them. I've been warned that they are going to be too difficult to do but is it possible to manage? Thank you in advance

    Additional Further Maths..
    I know It depends on modules but its very unlikely that you will do M4 M5 D2 and FP3 with ordinary further maths.
    It takes the applied modules to a much higher lever

    This.
    Applied modules especially mechanics in additional further maths are just like hell.

    I like your argument however I would 'disagree' with you on a few points. I do think it's possible for someone to not understand the subject in an essay subject - it's possible for someone to miss 'the point', hold fallacies about the subject, ill define the subject and therefore go severely off topic, and poorly argue their points in such a way as to make false statements which might even contradict or over simplify the subject matter. If one is good at interpretation and argumentation however it is often possible to write something that is coherent and poignant without much knowledge of the topic.

    Also, is that idea that mathematical knowledge is finite a healthy assumption? I'm not a mathematician but I would have thought it more fruitful to assume the opposite. Math is a language, no? - or, even, more like 'language', grammar that is - so perhaps anything could be said about anything. And the universe having no edge, that's a lot of things...

    In classics there is still a huge amount of research to be done relating to the reconstitution of texts - without which information the number of interpretations possible is very open. There are even entire languages yet to be decodified. So although the information on the subject is finite, there is still great call for the ongoing application of logic.
    Couldn't have put it better myself!

    There is a lot of work but providing that you work hard and keep at it you will do fine i tend to get roughly a hour of homework and then a hour of revision a day and have recently had my mocks and got A in physics, A in maths ,B in biology and B in chemistry
    Oh wow! Congratulations! Are you taking A levels in all of them or dropping one after AS?

    To be honest, at the moment I'm really excited for A level Chemistry. Unfortunately next year due to the A level reforms I won't be able to drop a subject so I'll be stuck with these till the very end. So I'm worried I'm going end up with options way too difficult for me to do. What are you thinking of doing at Uni?

    Languages- there isn't a set syllabus to revise, literally anything could be on the exam, and we have to learn books and films in another language and analyse them, without having the books or any notes with us in the (3 hour) exam. Plus the speaking exam is extremely nerve-wracking

    Photography is a lot of work and you need 100% for A or A*. not that difficult though just time consuming and takes away from other subjects x
    (Original post by Username002)
    Oh, that *does* sound tough...try not to chip a nail while clicking the camera, okay pumpkin?
    100% for an A or A*, that's why it's tough
