    Who cares? Your point is????

    Does it satisfy your ego to make this thread?
    The OP simply made a thread welcoming questions from us if we have any. Why be so bitter towards them?

    Bruh you must be a maths wiz. Any advice for a person doing further maths?
    It depends on what level you are currently at. Don't rush to go through past papers, find your weakest areas and do the end of chapter questions first. Then you can start doing papers after you are confident about everything. To be honest the questions are more or less the same, last year I literally did every single paper I could find (I did around 250 papers last year). Another good resource may be notes from Mr. Barton.
    Hah good luck. This is basically what I've done to average 99 across 18 modules last year.

    'Normal students' dont abide with you 'Normal specifications'. Why are your bashing OP for pushing himself and clearly working hard to be where he is. And when you say 'you dont have the chance', surely if you wanted to do 5 A levels you would have done so, either by going to a different school where you can do 5 or self studying a couple of them. Stop trying to discredit other people's hard work and intelligence just because you feel uncomfortable that they are better than you, because at the end of the day, OP sat his exams himself, no one else did it for him.
    Don't get mad get good bruh.
    I already said I have my a-levels! The whole point of normal is it describes the average person... you can search but it's fact that the median/mean/mode a-levels taken is 3. We don't know OP is a he btw . It would have been a lot more effort to "fight the system" and do more than 3 a levels... especially when the school doesn't see a need for you to. Self-studying: Organising your own exams, organising your own revision, organising your own learning, that's a lot of work lmao and there isn't really a need for people to take that on. Moving schools is a big deal too, nothing minor. I am not discrediting his hard work or intelligence... there isn't even a way to really compare mine and OP's intelligence/work ethic as I didn't do science at a level. OP hasn't completed his a levels, yet I already have... I'm at uni mate!

    I haven't had a tutor for A-levels or GCSE. My parents don't push and don't help me with school work, though they are supportive. They just let me be. My mum does not know what A-levels I am doing. One of my A-levels (Dutch) I can only do because I lived in a Dutch-speaking country for a while. I did maths in one year (y12) because that's how my school teaches double maths. I go to a state school, though I admit that it is a quite a good grammar school.
    I do appreciate that most people do not have the same opportunities as me, but I have worked to some extent to be where I am.
    Grammar school. That's why . I did not go to one (just a normal state school) but I have heard they are almost as good as private schools so that explains a lot. They are supposedly very competitive so well done for keeping up and thriving.

    They would be really impressed if you had a clean sweet of A*s at GCSE, with top predicted grades at A level. Maths and further maths would be an advantage. Know in depth about Keynesian economics, I’d suggest reading the book. Any managerial experience you have to? They look for a lively person rather then a nerd to be honest, a big personality, really impress your interviewer.

    Also if not oxford, If you get to UcL, LSE or Warwick. They are all excellent universities for management studied on par with Cambridge and Oxford, and wouldn’t stop opportunities for your future.

    Don’t worry too much. Just get the grades and you should be accepted to at least one of the ‘big 5’ for economics or management studies.

    How would you say you prepared for the maths exam in general? I am guessing you did early entry so it was the old spec? Even so, what type of revision did you do before the exams. Also, for Chemistry and Biology, how do you revise the old topics? Do you just read the notes periodically or just look at exam questions? I am doing 5 as well but physics instead of Dutch so it will be interesting to know how you work.

    lol 😂 I’ve done a lot better then op and o haven’t showed off. Wow you got in to Cambridge. ‘Clap Clap’. Get off your high horse mate. Get your first class honours, get out into the real world and see what you become and how much money you make before you start bragging. Show us the mansion and the private jet and maybe we might get ‘jealous’.
    What a levels did you get? Did you go Oxbridge?

    He claims to but his threads suggest otherwise. When doonesbury linked it, he edited it with "Nothing to see here mate". What a bitter loser.

    How did your interview go?

    Do you think you got your offer due to a brilliant interview or just immense predicted and achieved grades?

    No, what you said before were simply excuses and I simply called you out on that. You cry about non-equal opportunities yet lack the drive or willpower to chase what you want, so you bash people who do. If anything, you're the troll here, a very jealous troll indeed.

    Boring. That's the whole point... they were meant to be excuses. Going against the standard 3 a-levels is very challenging as if your school thinks it's easier/better doing the 3 then you would have to organise any extra yourself.
    You seem to conveniently have forgotten me mentioning in my first reply of this thread or something that I already have my three a-levels, and am in university. Jealous slightly, but very? Nah. I will bash whoever I want, when I want. The main reason for OP's success is attending the grammar school they do. Fact. Unless you would like to cite all the stories of people in regular state sixth forms doing 5 a-levels... Credit is given where it's due, but a lot of it was having the opportunity.
