Done 4 exams over the past week (hence my irritation on having to sort the forums out whenever needed).

I've had Business and Maths A-Level Exams, with one to go (Maths - Statistics).. Considering I did 6 hours of solid revision for Mechanics (Maths module) and still failed the exam badly, you get a idea of how tough it was. :(

I am the King of Business, especially Business Finance.. Not a Trade and Profit and Loss account going that can stop me.. :D

I was taking Maths, Further Maths, Physics, English Lang and Psychology A/Sslast year. I dropped Further Maths and Psychology when I started my full A level.

I did a Maths-Mechanics paper last year for further maths... I didn't even reach the end of the paper, questions were taking that long. Hence my 'U' in Further Maths and my decision to drop the subject :D

Oddly, I got a B in just Maths... It just goes to show how sh!t that course was organised at my college.

If you are talking about the end of year exams then we did them ages ago. Like November or something.

I got an 'A' in normal Maths so decided to go for a "Pure Maths" A-level....dropped it after a month because of the headache it gave me :D

Doing Trigonometric Identities at the moment for Pure 2.. ouch. I know the feeling r-man.

You think Pure 2 is bad... wait till you hit Pure 3 :(

I think I got 12% on that exam last year.

Pure 3 doesn't seem so bad compared to Pure 2(its all about cones and has some kind of basis in reality, so I'm ok with it so far), but then again I'm only on page 10 of Pure 2 and a fair whack through Pure 3..

16-01-2002, 06:00 PM
It may not be that bad, actually, the only reason I failed it was because we started Pure 3 about 2 months before the exam :rolleyes: , and we only had a 2 hour lesson per week to learn it in.

My college is sh!t.

High school is a blast. Last semester we had to whole days for exams, 2 hours per period. The exams were -very- easy, and each exam took about 30 minutes of the 2 hours. best of all, the exams only counted as 7% of our final grade. We ended up bringing CD players (and other electronic devices :D) the next day...

Be thankful for highschool while you still have it.
