    I refuse to accept that unless you have asked the man himself and he has confirmed it.

    How long is a piece of string?

    My 'friends' are exchanging 'notes' on How to Write A Personal Statement, but have yet to inform me I fail to see how you can get notes on how to write an entirely personal document; at our school, they said it should be two-thirds extra-curricular, one-third about your subject, which is the exact opposite to the advice given on here What do I do?!

    I dunno ... I can crank it up to 11 km/h for a little while before I feel like throwing up. :o: But I want to go at a consistent speed, like 6 km/h.

    Do whatever you feel is appropriate. I would suggest a heavier bias on academic traits is much less likely to backfire than the reverse, unless you have an extraordinary number of strongly subject-related extracurriculars.

    ALWAYS make it revolved around about much you love the subject, and clubs/hobbies/skills/traits which are relevant. Noone cares if you rescued some random french town from a bomb, or if you guided your brownie group from a wild bear. Only include stuff if it's relevant OR if you got skills from it which are relevant. It's about you, and how much ya want to do English, not an essay. Screw yer school.

    most definetely follow the advice on here. although i think music instruments/sports will interest the unis, i don't think they care about that time you helped out at a parents night for one of your prefect duties.

    6km/h is 3.73mph according to google. 1/3.73 = 0.27. 0.27 x 60 = 16.2 minutes.

    i think you should be aiming considerably higher. :p:

    This. :p: As a guideline, I use 3.5 mph (5.6 km/h) as a guideline for walking speed, and I think I probably walk a little faster than that. I'm ridiculously out of shape and even I can average a smidgeon over 5 mph over about 4 miles.

    Wouldn't they have parallel gradients as in the same gradients?

    mPK = mPM ?

    :awesome:

    :sigh:

    I can't remember this stuff.

    If they share the point P, then they can hardly be parallel! AHMaths:eek3:

    Er, I find exercise generally makes me feel better, as you'd expect (endorphins and all that), but nothing that I would remotely describe as a 'high'. :o:

    others have already answered i see. i would say if you're in reasonable shape you should be aiming for about 6/7 minutes.
