  2. I learnt more mathematics getting my head around my elder daughters GCSE's a few years ago, than I did at school. And she got an A!
    **** thing is I've forgotten it all just as my next kid starts their GCSE's. ******* algebra and multiplying fractions all over again........
    By the time all four kids are through school, I'll be a freakin maths wizard.

    The maths my daughter does in junior school baffles the hell out of me, they don't use long division like we used to, its all number squares and stuff that makes no sense to me at all!

    I got an A in english language and A in english literature as you can probably tell by my punctuation
    Just means i am a well read windie that has got all the books ever written by tolkein and can actually read them..lol
    Funny how you spend your first years working towards a career which never actually happens
    Saying that i still talk like a proper london council estate urchin
    You can take the boy out of london.........

    Didn't need my qualifications in the army/reserves and don't need them now
    Could have been out on the ladders instead of being at school

    Passed all mine as well, the only one I didn't get C or above in was history as I only wrote my name on the paper lol

    Though I did need mine as I did a BTEC national diploma in electronics when I left school, though I only managed just under a year of it as I was homeless at 16 so couldn't keep it up, then did an apprenticeship as an electrician, passed all that, but then I got heart problems in my late 20's so don't mess with electric anymore either.
