Aye, nobody likes the midges! Stick to the coast where there's usually a nice breeze.
I swear the midges target me, I'm always the first to notice them and have the most number of bites once escaped. The little ****ers.

/me is half scottish, but don't resemble or sound scottish in the slightest!

Not too many mountains on the coast for some reason though.... :p:

Half scottish is the best!!!!!! What's ur other half then? Irish? Welsh? British?
English!

Half lancashire, half scottish, raised in Kent... means I've seen more of the country than a lot of my peers, I certainly don't think life ends at Watford :rolleyes:. I think I'd have rather been raised in Edinburgh or Glasgow, Kent will always be home but it's a bit **** and although I can usually comprehend scottish accents I certainly don't have one (even though I sometimes habitually use scottish words like: dreich, glaikit (sp?), eejit, leerie (sp?)).

By active i meant posting. I totally understand that u have to work for exams coz i also have exams coming soon, but I'm done with all my internal assessments, coursework and orals... since yesterday so u must understand my hapiness! Now i have 9 days of school left and then study time until exams from the 3rd until the 18th of May... I'm so relieved now it's only memorising left... Good luck to all A-levels student who still have a lot more to do

only one project left - English, Physics and Chemistry down, Biology to go


P.S. you sissy A-level candidates don't know you're born. One course = one exam = one chance. Now that's pressure. :eek:

Actually, that's just me being jealous, but surely you must all be calmer having already got more than half the marks you need?

I'm not doing A levels! I take IB so 6 subjects for which I have just finished all my courseworks and orals (which is the reason why I'm so happy and just realxing this weekend ) but I still have at least 2 if not 3 exams paper in each subject... Moreover all my exams are in May and based on a 2 year syllabus... usually no one resits unless failure... So it might be less pressure coz my grade doesnt depend on a single paper but i have 6 subjects and exams based on 2 years of learning so lots of work...
Spanish language: 30% of my grade is 2 orals / i have 2 exam papers left= 40% and 30%
English lit: 30%= 2 orals / 20% coursework / 2 exam papers of 25% each
French lit: 30%=2 orals / 20% coursework / 2 exam papers of 25% each
Maths: 20%=coursework / 2 exam papers= 30% and 50%
Economics: 20%=coursework / 3 exam papers= 20%, 20% and 40%
Biologie: 20%=10 labs and a project / 3 exam papers= 20%, 20% and 40%

to an extent i guess, it just means the pressure starts earlier, you can't sleep right from the moment you start the AS course.

probably just applies to me; i thought AS's were the end of the world (as i thought gcses, a levels were the end of the world) and got majorly stressed about everything. i'm probably going to get like that with part 1A at some point. maybe.

The trend is likely to continue...

Tripos? Piece of piss

All of you should be able to pass... it's _hard_ to go to lectures and supervisions and fail.
