    Just finished mine off and got the same answer, using a completely different method. Looks good.

    Top second page.
    so from the bottom of the first page i had the first term of time as;

     \displaystyle \frac{x}{3} \sqrt{\left(\frac{0.3}{x}\right)  ^2+1}

    so taking the x/3 inside the square root

     \displaystyle \sqrt{\left(\frac{x}{3}\right)^2 \left(\left(\frac{0.3}{x}\right)  ^2+1\right)}

    = \displaystyle \sqrt{\left(\frac{x^2}{9}\right) \left(\frac{0.09}{x^2} +1\right)}

    multiply brackets together using regular method;

    = \displaystyle \sqrt{0.01 + \frac{x^2}{9}}

    I was going to do chemistry for AS, it was between chemistry and economics and I choose economics, i hated it so much and ended up dropping it around November time :laugh: definitely the wrong choice to pick economics tbh.

    From what chemistry my friends have shown me it seems quite mathematical and logical, but maybe they are only showing me the maths stuff :dontknow:

    Yeah it's very maths based and logical. It was a simple AS to carry. I ended up with an A overall.

    Lol I thought about studying a single writing based subject rather than chemistry, just to give myself more courses to consider at uni. I tried history but content I had to remember.......
    so I dropped that subject within a week. I also tried English literature for 3 months, I realised the reason why I got a B in English lit. I literally despise poetry analysis and coursework lmao. luckily was able to pick up chemistry in January

    history and any sort of english is boke :laugh: but picking up chemistry in January and getting an A is amazing

    i scraped an A in AS computing 163/200 so i just dropped it, i was originally going to do Maths, FM and computing at A2 but physics was a good A at AS and computing wasn't, so that changed my mind

    Dude I heard computing was difficult last year, damn. It wasn't that amazing losing sleep just to get the content on lockdown haha xD

    Dude you got an AAAA tho. That's freaking dope, whereas I got an AAAB, I messed up my AS2 physics but aced my AS1 and AS3 physics. I thought about redoing it but it just seems inconvenient. But it did effect my predicted grades and my application, which sucked. I was legit in tears when I opened my AS results, I asked for a remark but it still came out as a B. What uni are you planning on going to?

    yea about 60/100 raw was an A in both papers :laugh: but the papers were so nasty, one of the modules i got half the marks raw :rofl:

    AAAA is pretty much equal to AAAB, AAAB is still terrific

    ah damn that sucks :cry: was it a high B? how are you finding A2 physics, do you think you'll be able to pull it up to an A?

    firmed Bath so most likely there unless I do exceptionally well in June, wbu?

    AAAA isn't the same as AAAB xD the B is just so unattractive and unappealing. It's like you're smart enough but not there yet, it's such a tease xD loool
    And yeah it was a high B, 3 marks off an A. Which is annoying lol. A2 physics is alright, I got an A in my mock exam but just scraped an A, no where near an A*
    I'm not entirely sure if I want to go to uni lool but I got a conditional offer at UCL to study Mathematics

    well i know what you mean as I hate my Bs at gcse but AAAB will never hold you back, considering about half of alevel students only do 3 ASs (and the country average is probably CCC :laugh:)

    well scrape an A by 3 marks this year and you'll get an A overall definitely achievable, i like the system regarding A*s where only A2s count, it means AS isn't as vital for the top grades as everyone is still a little immature and everything at AS level i think, most people wise up and get serious at A2

    wow UCL thats so cool, very well done what are your other plans?
