I don't think there are any non-obscure ones.

I don't think it matters whether one is public or private, all sites without seeding regulations just keep repeating the same torrent for a decade instead.
I never seen a torrent site with software that enforced at least 1 seed. I like how BBT works in this regard, you are prtty much guaranteed to DL something here, sure there are a few unseeded torrents, but they are working on that.

FUCKING PHONE....
I wrote an enormous post and it fucking disappeared when the browser refreshed mid-sentence randomly...

Long story short: Metal Gear series is tha same game at its core, over and over.

Revengeance is really different.
The Phantom Pain is also reasonably different with the introduction of massive open world mechanics.

I wish all games from now on were like Mass Effect Andromeda, with all characters being autistic comedians.

It doesn't really surprise me, you're not the only UK person who doesn't do as expected of them in their native language. In my opinion it's a common occurrence in all countries, I didn't need to study much for english to have As but I had to do a lot of studying for my grades in Polish lit to be at least B. I'm pretty sure it's our nature since hey, we live here, shouldn't be a problem right ?
Well, no.

Don't worry, just focus a bit more.

the reason natives do worse in the subject is because it's a lot harder than taking it as a foreign language

It's not even about focus I just hate the way you get tested in Eng Lit, there's no structure, nor formula to the answers. I found the paper really easy but got a C, the last exam was pretty hard but I got a high B. Sociology/Philosophy has a structure set for each paragraph which makes it easy, follow it and you'll do well. But in Eng Lit it's all jumbled up and the only help a teacher can give is 'study the mark scheme'.

I really don't wanna stay at sixth form another year, but I have no idea what im gonna study, or do in life

The worst when it comes to English for me is present simple and present continues.
I have no idea why I keep getting those on advanced tests where I should be tested if I can make a formal writ to the damned parliament kinda thingy or make a correct contract following all regulations, BUSINESS ENGLISH FFS NOT COMMON PEASANTS ENGLISH BITCH !

That's what I get to do at school, I picked up business english and I am back to square one with present simple and present continues. Everyone complains they are not learning anything new for 2 years now.

Good thing I don't really need it but I would like to do and practice this and that is what I picked up, I mean, FUCK I will get a paper for this, at least touch this with a 20 meter smelly stick dammit!
Or I'll hit your head with a smelly rotting mackerel!

Seriously, this irks me.

It's a concept kinda worth knowing so you can distinguish ways people speak in present tense, but it's not even remotely worth the time to study it.
Also, English (and literature) class for native speakers is literally a waste of time due to the lack of systematic organization of concepts (it's literally just study how some author wrote some book).

Welcome to growing up. It's a very small minority of people that "actually know what they want to do"

On that note, why are you set on going into eng?

Do you want to be primarily a teacher or teach English. I imagine that just finding a job as a teacher would be significantly easier than becoming an English teacher in the UK. Also, teaching the language class for native students comes with the most out of class work for the teacher. Grading isn't the interesting part of teaching and as an Eng teacher you'll have many a essay to grade, where another specialisation could get away with multiple choice.

Also, I rather imagine that there's a lot of competition for that spot and that English majors aren't that uncommon in well, England. While it's not not equivalent, as a chem grad. I can pretty much walk into any school I want here and get a job as a teacher, because very few chemists go into teaching here. Conversely, we have a bit of a surplus of humanities graduates that want to teach in schools and that became a rather difficult gig to get.

Hell, a CS graduate could probably just whistle that he wants to teach in a school and that he'd be fine with the pay and he'd probably have an inbox full of "Have you considered applying to... x" within the hour.

I would want to teach internationally (where there is demand) for the first few years of my teaching career then move back here and teach at a language school and then part time in a sixth form.


I hate computer science in school, I did it and the teacher here is a complete asshole and made it boring (we did everything in VB.NET)

But now I dropped it they started only doing python, so that sucks.

Might have an offer on my house already.  3 days on the market so far, and 9 showings.  1 more scheduled for tomorrow morning.

I don't think either of those two are appropriate for introductory computer science.
