I'm rather glad! Last Friday, I asked my Deputy Headteacher if I could take further maths for AS Level (even though its already one term into the year, and everyone is well into their course now) on top of maths, but not attend the lessons, i.e. teach myself, and then take the exams at the end of the year. She said that she believed that I could easily do it and that it should not be a problem, but all she has to do is to talk to the maths departments and see if there are any technicalities to sort out. I may get a chance to do an extra maths A Level, but without having to suffer the bordeom of the lessons (they go too slowly)!

I didn't take further maths in the first place because one can only take four A Levels, so I would have to drop one of my sciences to do further maths (as well as maths) because of the timetables. But if I do teach myself, then timetabling won't be a problem!

*Hopes!*
