(No, really, I did. Normally, when people write stuff like "I need to get some sleep LOL", I think: no, you didn't actually laugh out loud when you typed that, or if you did then you're a moron. But I genuinely did LOL at that.)

edit: Oh and congrats Kai on that AS 100%. I'm amazed you find the time to be so awesome at both Countdown and distant-future-level academia! I got like a 93% in that one but I'm comfortable being outperformed by a mini-tot

Wahey, congratulations little dude. What the fudge is 'Core' though? It used to Pure, Stats, Mechanics and Decision Maths in my day.
Well, before someone else old says it - what the freaking freak is Decision Maths? It used to be Pure, Stats and Mechanics in my day.

Oh, and well done everyone (as applicable)!
Decision Maths is Discrete Maths, which covers loads of non-calculus advanced maths like algorithms, graph theory and linear programming. It was my favourite one after core, stats and mechanics.

The odd thing is that I didn't do Decision Maths but did 4 Core, 1 Mechanics and Statistics as well. Statistics was piss easy though. My little bro picked up his year 10 results today and even managed as high as 171/179 in his M9 test, and also did excellently in general, which I'm really pleased about because I know he sometimes feels a little bit in my shadow as I did well at school. Hopefully these results will show him he could easily go on to be better than me (he is already outperforming me in GCSE Maths) as I know he does feel a bit pressured from time to time to 'live up' to my performances, irregardless of how much we tell him if he performs to the best of his abilities we'll be proud of him.

I've had two attempts at S1 - first time I got an E, second time a D. I'm hoping it will be third time lucky!

The maths modules I'll be taking in January: C2, C3, C4, M1, S1, FP1, FP2, D1. :(

:o That's a shitload of Maths.

Tbf the first time I did S1 I got a C, you can easily make so many mistakes in working out. During the retake I went over every answer about 3 times.

Assuming one is English and taking into consideration that Latin is absolutely useless, he's basically learnt to speak one language at 8 years old. Note how they don't say he's fluent either.

Got my chem result results today. Needed 40% to pass and I passed 2 out of 3 (got 37 on the other one). Not brilliant but conceded pass so I get to do my final year. Shame it only tells you the capped results cos I think I did pretty good on the other 2!

From now on you can direct all your chemistry questions to Mr Thurlow. dinos_the_chemist is no more!

Today I've made the change from BSc Chemistry and Maths to BSc Maths. This also means me switching from Level 3 to Level 2 and doing another year but I think in the long run it will be worth it. Hopefully I'll finish with a better class of degree and have more opportunity to get teaching experience before I apply for my PGCE. Also now Emma and I will graduate in the same year yay :) This semester just gone I fared abominably in my exams which was a real wake up call for me. Its going to be a lot of hard work but I'm savouring the chance to do better with my new found work ethic.

"Why the fuck is here so hot?"

Also, this thread has reminded me that there should be a word/phrase for the state in which something has already been decided but the outcome is not yet known externally (e.g. between taking an exam and getting the results). I usually use "collapsing the wave function" but this makes me sound like a dick. Any ideas?

I'm quite happy for us all to go along with "collapsing wave function" if it makes Charlie sound like a dick every time anyone says it.

Nurse Mary: Yes.
Captain Blackadder: I then leapt on the opportunity to test you. I asked if he'd been to one of the great universities, Oxford, Cambridge, or Hull.
Nurse Mary: Well?
Captain Blackadder: You failed to spot that only two of those are great Universities.
Nurse Mary: Swine!

Haha, I don't think you ever told me that. You loser.
Did you think I was exaggerating when I said I failed STEP? Incidentally Computer Science was full of maths rejects.
Oh, maybe. I'd completely forgotten if you did. Either that or I'd erased it from my memory because you're such a bad programmer.

How'd you do Jack?
Well done! Brilliant considering your youth. What are you going to do along side C4?
Thanks. I'm probably doing M1, D1, S1 and C4 this year (I did D1 ages ago but failed).

Nurse Mary: Yes.
Captain Blackadder: I then leapt on the opportunity to test you. I asked if he'd been to one of the great universities, Oxford, Cambridge, or Hull.
Nurse Mary: Well?
Captain Blackadder: You failed to spot that only two of those are great Universities.
Nurse Mary: Swine!

General Melchett: That's right! Oxford's a complete dump!
Ah, Blackadder. You can't beat it. ;) :) :D Get Stephen Fry back in DC. :idea: 8-)

Junaid's comments from last year are still applicable, methinks.

You little shits are all too smart.

Someone start posting some fails now or at the least some mediocre results.

By that I mean congratulations.

Congrats Jimmy and Jack. I'm guessing you're doing maths having done STEP (unless you did them for fun), and Pembroke is a nice college.

At Cambridge, I failed in the Honours, but just did well enough to be granted a Pass degree :(

Is there still a mandatory Classics entrance test? - I needed Latin as well as Maths (Pure & Applied) Physics and Chemistry. That was back in 1943 - I think my equivalent grades were D(or E - anything better than a fail would have done, so wasn't given actual result), A*, A, B, C respectively. :geek:
