    How can you miss part of the def for an abelian group, I thought there was only one 'part' to it lol?
    Eh, that's kinda bad (70 minus scaling is great for a 'messed up' exam though), but nothing compared to how badly I'll do in discrete maths. Thank god they've just sent out emails for revision lectures, definitely have to go to those.
    That's just one module I would say. And you're goal now is just to get a first right, or are you trying to do better than that?

    Maybe I'm learning a tonne of stuff that I really don't need to. But it does take a lot of time for me. Remember I'm a lot worse at maths than it seems. You seem to have a fair amount of talent so you managed to do really well with little revision, but I take ages to properly revise a module. The stuff just doesn't intuitively 'click' until I've read it like 50 times over. Once it does I'm generally ok though.
    As in the whole thing, not just the qualification abelian, so closed, commutative, associative, identity, inverse. I forgot to say that an identity exists, I only mentioned it in saying that inverse exists. I was rushing, to be fair...

    Tbh I wouldn't worry too much about Discrete Maths. I got 80 in it after barely attending lectures and just reading the book a bit. The exam was atrociously hard, or at least it felt so in exam conditions, but that's largely a good thing; it was more about mathematical problem solving ability than knowing the course in and out, it seemed. I mean, I know if I get less than 80, which is likely, I won't be ecstatic in any case, and certainly if I get less than 75, I'll probably be pretty unhappy. But my aspirations will probably be shaped by my exam performance in June. If I totally screw them, then I'll be happy to get a first in the end of course, hell, maybe even to meet the 65% master's threshold if they go really badly.

    I mean to properly learn and digest the material would take a long time. I have generally adopted a very cynical approach, looking at lots of exam papers to figure out what is actually necessary for me to be able to do and understand and what I can just ignore. If I have any skill, it is in the art of efficiently and (for the most part) consistently doing well in exams, whether or not I have a true or deep understanding of what they entail.

    Stressed 😦because of maths.Legit I have the worst teacher ever, when she explains the work in class she fully doesn't know what she's doing. How's she saying to us "I'm learning Alevel maths with you guys", I'm thinking you should know the content fully already. I leave the lesson more confused then when I came in the lesson😳.It's gotten to the point where's I just don't go to my maths lesson and I teach myself the content.

    Oh right. Still.

    Yeah I looked at a few papers and it's basically either 'I know how to do that, I've seen that idea before!' or 'this is impossible'. Fortunately there are quite a few that are the former, though the actual exam could easily just be terrible for me personally. I remember seeing this nasty looking question with an n^(1/4) in it that looked completely impossible; hoping for none of those...
    Same with me, was aspiring for 95+, did completely sh*t and got 90+, so relatively I was very happy. Tbf I have no idea why I want to do so much better than a first, there's no point and I'm still going to struggle to get even a half-decent job when I graduate.

    I considered the looking at papers and revising accordingly approach, but i don't trust my luck at all. They'd just ask for all the proofs I hadn't revised.

    Brilliant. Well, apart from accidentally smashing a bowl

    I saw my CPN today and he said that if he was made to assess and diagnose me on the spot, he wouldn't put a single straightforward diagnosis on me - which is actually amazing news. To go from having numerous, stigmatised labelled on me to an acceptance that 'yeah, I'm odd, I think odd, I act odd, I sometimes hear and see things, and I get horribly depressed sometimes for no reason' is strangely thrilling to me. Sure, I am always going to be different and there is nothing wrong with that at all.

    Perhaps it's because I have accepted there is no cure. I am what I am. But guess what that means?

    No - more - fricking - horrible - meds - ever.



    It's all about relapse prevention etc from here on in. And that's bloody ****ing brilliant. Compared to where I was this time 2 years ago, it definitely is.
