Ahhh congrats on the offer!!!!! :party: It’s always a relief to get the first one through :yep:

63 is a solid mark, you should be proud of that (esp with ~1 month to go!) Is it early November? Think it was around the 5th last year!

If you need any help with Maclaurin series I can try to help
Thank you 😁!
I feel like I can't stop grinning lol.

The MAT is on 3rd November (22 days!!) so I still have some time to prep

yeah I have, but not in school. they were gonna move it forward in the year but then they couldn't, so I've just gone through the whole chapter in the textbook and done all examples and most of the exercises. thankfully it's quite an easy topic.

I got an offer!

I got an offer for Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Birmingham!! I'm so excited!! It's for A*AA, which should be ok. But Birmingham is basically my top choice of uni, so I'm over the moon!!

Over the weekend I did a MAT mock (the 2018 paper) and I got 63%, which is ok. This week's MAT livestream is going through this paper so I should get clarification on the questions I didn't really understand, and if not I'll take it to my teacher on Friday.

I also started work on my further maths revision for the series test. I find the Maclaurin series stuff quite hard so it will take some work.

Aaaaah. I've not had a good day. :cry:

Tomorrow is my databases assessment for computing. I hope it goes well, I think I know SQL it's just the definitions and bits I'm not sure about.

I had further maths and my teacher sprung a test on us. I don't know why :confused: he thought it was a good idea . So now I have to revise Chi Squared Tests before Thursday. I also still have to revise for the series test on Friday as well.

I've been marking the MAT 2019 paper which at the time felt good. On question 1 I got 16/40 and I started marking question 2, it was a disaster so now I'm quite miserable and don't want to mark the rest. I do need to though. I think I will be doing plenty more practise before attempting another whole paper. I'm just so disappointed because I thought it was going well at the time.

The other thing bothering me is that I can't access my composition at all. This means all my music coursework has just ground to a halt. It's because the school haven't paid for this year's noteflight subscription yet for some reason so I can't do that at all.

My plan for tonight involves cramming databases definitions, starting revision on chi squared and finishing my further maths homework which is due tomorrow. I feel like I am normally so much more organised than this so I don't know what's going on with me.

More Offers Coming In!

Today I got 2 more offers! One from Leicester (Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence - AAB) and one from York (Mathematics / Computer Science - AAA). So now I've had offers from 3/5 unis, which is more than I would expect to have at this early date. The 3 I've had offers from include my top 2 unis as well.

Work wise I've watched a MAT livestream video. Honestly I find them so motivating and they encourage me to get so much done, so then I can comment and ask questions and stuff. Today I had a milkshake when I was doing it too which made me happy.

All the things that I was worried about on Monday seem so much better today. My music teacher has managed to get Noteflight back up and running which is a relief. I have done a further maths test and a computing test, leaving me with just one more tomorrow.

I feel like year 13 is an absolute rollercoaster, as one day I am like

Thank you! and of course I can tag you.

I don't think I'm gonna be doing any major updates until after half term (or maybe even until after the MAT exam, depending how I feel about it)
