Ah, med students.

I laugh at them because they're here for 5 years and do far, far more work than I do.

Urgh I'm just sick of gcse doing a load of crap that just don't care about.
-lord of the flies
-bloody poems from anthology
-like everything in maths
-the 'wave model'
-ARGH RELIGION (so glad my social group are all atheists, at least we'll fail together)

And I'm sure I developed anger issues. I'm sooo tempted to throw my text book at the teacher (even tho not their fault)

I can't wait for a level

-phcology (dunno where the s goes)
-I.C.T
-commputing
-History (all ready done half the course in gcse)
_________________________________________________________

And now some dribble

wow this is rather theraputic not like anyone cba to read all this but as no one knows who i am blah blah blah.

Hmm what else about school irritates me...
-bloody looking smart seem to always 'on show' well who the F*** for? so what if my tie aint done up, I'm not gunna listen any more with a bloody noose round ma neck
-Chavs. I hate to...generalise but seems I am. JUST PISS OFF. par example chav on bus picks on my little bro. I shout at chav. Chav stops. Later that week chav starts again. I shout again. Chav stops. Chave starts again. I really shout at chav now..whole bus watching..chav backs down. Next loving time methinks i may lash out.
-weather...it's crap. Too bloody cold but when go indoor teenage body kicks in and go all sweaty (mmmmm nice image for you)
-URGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH so what if I have facial hair! What if I don't want to look like a 10 year old. I like it so deal with it!!!!! tosser.
-urgh 'social politics'-mate falling out so lovely awkward silence. Flirting which then ends up crossing the line (whoa now there's something I regretted)


hmmm I'm too pessimistic for 15, wow and I don't even wear make-up yet still think'emo'. Great generalised again.

I was forced to take Technology and I.T isn't what I thought it would be, hence the lower grades.

Applied to Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College (apparently one of the best state colleges in England) in Darlington this October with:

Politics
Economics
German
History - Modern
Sociology

in mind as possible subject choices. Critical Thinking or General Studies is also compulsory.

As Durham University is just up the road (12 miles) our school usually gets a lot of mentoring sessions. Smile


wow we're very close to each other in RL. and I heard QE is very good from those who went to the open evening this year.

Being an atheist does not mean that you can't understand religion. I personally find it highly ironic when atheists accuse theists of being brainwashed, when they themselves have become atheists at a similar (if not younger) age.

Very much agreed here. I have a friend (who is admittedly mildly autistic) who is a very religious atheist. He used to worship Richard Dawkins, until I managed to convince him that religion was not inherently evil.

He worshipped Dawkins?! Oh my...
I know of someone who was like that. They rang him up and he was intolerably rude. She now hates him.

But yeah, i often find atheists who will simply parrot Dawkins as if it's fact. Sure, you'll get theists like that, but that alone defeats most of what Dawkins has to say.

Exactly... I'm fairly strongly atheist, but I don't view my own beliefs as fact, nor as the only thing to believe. I agree with Dawkins that there are some religious fundamentalists whose views are quite simply stupid and in some cases, violent. However, the same goes for any kind of belief, be it religious, political, or anything. You can't judge an entire area of thought on its extremes; after all, that's no better than judging the PCP on what Stalin did IRL.

GCSEs are taken over 2 years from 14-16, and you take around 10 (can be more or less depending on what the school offers). A Levels are taken after over 2 years, from 16-18 and most people take 3 or 4. I have no idea about entrance fees. Razz

I went to the open evening. The place is of quite high quality. I'm assuming you're in North Yorkshire if you're hearing stuff about QE.

It's not really weird. They're pretty standard qualifications around the world and they're classed as some of the best. There are international versions and you take what subjects you want. Smile

We generally don't have High Schools or Middle Schools like most countries. We use Primary Schools and Secondary Schools, then onto Sixth Form and then University.

Reception, Y1, Y2, Y3, Y4, Y5, Y6 are Primary School.
Y7, Y8, Y9, Y10, Y11 are Secondary School.
Y12, Y13 are Sixth Form.

GCSEs are Years 10 and 11. (14-16) A Levels are Sixth Form (16-18 ).
