Gosh, it's a long time since I last got round to updating this, isn't it? I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year.

My New Year's Resolutions were as follows:

  1. Work Harder
  2. Play Harder
  3. Blog more often
So as you can tell, I'm a bit slow getting started.

I had an interview at Cambridge just before Christmas, and on the 2nd of January I got a letter from them saying that I've got an offer! I'll need to get A grades in Maths, Physics and Further Maths (!) to get in, so I suppose I'll really need to pull all the stops out this term to learn all the stuff I need to.

Speaking of learning all the stuff I need to, I had my Pure Mathematics 3 modular exam today. Even though I'd been working almost non-stop since Monday morning at my revision, I still messed it up - I got hopelessly tangled up on question 5, which was a question on the integration of parametric equations. The next exam I've got is Mechanics 3 on Monday. When that one's done, I'll stick a couple of choice questions from both papers on to here so you have some idea of what I was up against...
