    So you have AAAa?
    Are you applying for economics next year and doing further maths?
    yep got me AAAA at AS. Im probably gonna apply for economics next year and most likely will end up doing further maths A2 while im gapping it.

    Ah, I see. Yeah, further maths is probably a good idea, especially as you'll be thinking of applying to good unis.

    FP1, on OCR at least, isn't too bad although it does seem way more abstract than anything done in C1-4. I've heard that FP2 and FP3 are, in comparison to other modules, pretty hard.

    Thanks. And yeah, I suppose I'd call it a raping.

    Lots of people in my class not pleased because I got an A but did only a few minutes revision :p: Was pretty flukey, but quite close to the boundary.

    Still, I'll take it! And I doubt i'll resit :p: Going to aim to be in the 90s for C4 so I have leeway in stats to drop some marks. I hate stats.
    Yeh same here, but tbh I'm not bothered, because atm I'm sitting on 372/400, which means I only need 54/100 on each of the last two papers to get an A

    My excuse is that I'm more likely to fall asleep in the easier modules.

    If you see the papers you'd understand.

    ICT isn't very computer orientated. If it was a programming course or something, it would have easily been another A. But it's a very essay based subject really. Something I didn't know when I took it. Obviously I'm a sciency subject person, not an englishy one. It sounds like it should be a technical, sciency, subject, but it's actually a lot more englishy.
    i guess so. i just thought that if your maths minded programming would be easier, that said i did computer science at alevel and i hated every moment of it.

    It is a lot easier. I flew through that bit of the coursework. The guy next to me wouldn't stop telling me he hated me because it came so easily to me and he didn't have a clue what was going on. Not seriously ofcourse, just as a joke when I told him what was going wrong with his and how to fix it.

    Unfortunately actually being able to do that doesn't help in the exams or coursework at all.
