Does anyone else have really annoying parents regarding studying?
YES! My dad's unbearable, the other day he asked how many points I'll get. "500? More?" he said :O Mam told me that I'm a disappointment so doesn't push me to study (I'm pretty sure she meant that as a joke though!) but in all seriousness, she knows how annoying it is so leaves me alone

Same, and I don't want to let them down like

Well whenever mine annoy me I tell them I'm doing loads of study to get them to leave me alone, so they're gonna get such a shock when I get around -460 in the mocks. I get so touchy about study with my parents though, I dunno what it is. I'm constantly looking for motivation, I love it when my teachers and friends tell me that I'm not doing enough, but for some reason it hits such a nerve when my parents say it.

Guilt.

And sub-consciously knowing that they are the people who are worrying the most and who will be most disappointed (apart from yourself) if you don't live up to your potential.

Plus, on the other hand, knowing that your friends and teachers have more of an understanding of the LC, what's needed, etc., than your parents (or most parents) have.

Usually, it's the first one that gets to youngsters most, but they blame it on the second because it's easier.

Yeah you're probably right... Oh well, only 4 months left!

Guys is it even possible to get 440 at this stage? If you've been doing homework and very little else so far in the year?

Business was horrrrrrrrible today. but that's probably because I did literally an hours study. It'd have been lovely if I actually knew anything.

Biology and maths P1 tomorrow. Might aswell just prepare the noose.

You'd want to go over cell division (mitosis etc), DNA/Rna structure, maybe the immune system (virus's, bacteria), photasynthesis (not sure is thats the english for it ha ), genetics, and the stuff on plants
Everythings grand except for the plants ha
