    Yeah that's true aha I'm rushing the exams (but to a good 98+ UMS on average) since it's the last year.

    Yeah that's true but I just find mechanics hard to understand as the physics behind it is beyond me. Thanks for the advice! You should take the AEA - it'll be a good qualification!
    Yeah I have done a couple past papers and it is fun but I don't need it for my offer so.

    That's a great result. You will definitely get the Hamilton - I'm assuming you're going for the book prize?
    Your assumption is correct. My year has always done quite well in the Maths Challenge, so I'm not actually top in my year, as two of my friends are both exceptional at Maths(One got 127 Last year, the other got 123), so I usually come between 3rd or 5th in my year. Maclaurin is quite a tough one(114+), but I'm sure your make it, considering your so far ahead in Maths, good luck!

    Damn that's really impressive - well done! In year 10, I wasn't allowed to take some modules so I just did the GCSE.

    I'm doing the exact same modules apart from D1 - I'm either opting for M3 or S3.

    What will you be taking in sixth form?
    Definitely Chemistry and Physics as I got 9s in them in my mocks. My other mocks weren't as good.

    Yeah, I don't see what else I can do in year 12 and 13 apart from STEP and BMO.
    You mentioned earlier that you might be doing some sort of maths programme at Imperial next year. About 2 months ago, my school have been suggesting that I should do something like that at Imperial, but not sure due to lack of information.

    That's true. A sole focus on problem-solving can get us to full marks in Senior and scoring good marks on BMO1/BMO2 and STEP.

    Yes there's some program that introduces you to first year undergraduate Maths work. The guy said he'll email me so I'll start it next month but haven't received it yet. I don't think if it's an actual thing or not.

    So I'm focusing on problem solving/STEP next year. Are you also taking AEA this year?

    No, I'll probably do it next year. It's because I want to spend more time on my GCSEs (mainly English since I'm not very good at it).

    Ah fair enough - good luck with English and your other exams this year!

    Update:

    - So I competed in the IMC and qualified for the IMOK Maclaurin Olympiad (currently preparing for that)
    - Got the GCSE Physics Olympiad to do
    - Also officially finished FM (time for past papers); I learnt 2 modules over this half term

    Hey

    I'm currently in year 11 and my exams start in 3 months so I may as well start this thread now in order to monitor my progress and see if I get what I'm hoping for... the real intensity begins now

    Completed Qualifications:

    Spoiler:
    Show



    RE (Edexcel) - A*
    Maths (AQA) - 9




    What I'd like to get this year:

    Spoiler:
    Show


    Maths (C1-C4, S1-M1) - A*
    Further Maths (FP1-FP3, S2, M2-M3) - A*
    English Language - 9
    English Literature - 9
    Chemistry - 9
    Biology - 9
    Chemistry - 9
    Physics - 9
    Computer Science - 9
    French - 9
    Psychology - A*



    Class tests:

    Spoiler:
    Show


    Biology - 9
    Chemistry - 9
    Physics - 9
    Computer Science - 9 (100% on all 4 tests so far)
    English Language - 8
    English Literature - 8
    French - 6+
    Psychology - A*



    Extra stuff:

    Spoiler:
    Show


    I really enjoy Maths and Sciences. I have taken the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge earlier this year and just took the IMC. I'm hopefully going to participate in the Maclaurin Olympiad and the GCSE Physics Challenge.



    What I want to do:

    Spoiler:
    Show


    I'd like to take Physics and Chemistry for A level. An admission guy from Imperial has also invited me this year and next year to have access to some sort of program Imperial has (I think?) where they introduce you to higher Maths covered in first year undergrad. e.g. lagrange transform, partial differentiation, etc. It's an online course so I'll be doing that in sixth form too. I'd like to do Maths at uni - ideally Cambridge but I've heard it's extremely hard to get into.



    Stress:

    Spoiler:
    Show


    I'm finding this year's workload overwhelmingly stupendous. I find myself cramming for tests at 2 AM before waking to 6 at 6:30. The workload for the remaining 3 months will be excruciating but I think it'll be worth it following the more relaxed times in sixth form.
