### Re: Hola!

Hi, and welcome to the board!! I think most of us will just call you archie, but some us (the likes of Mr T and Stewie) will probably call you archibald.

Well, if they can call you "whatever suits their fancy," I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled out all the stops and started calling you Wilf! Hope they don't, though. Oops, almost forgot, welcome!

Mr T, your super-knowledge should tell you that obvious spamming on a board moderated by Zach is not a good idea.

Right. So you should have down a Media Studies GCSE when you were in Set 1.

So....What does "linticular" mean? (spelling might be different)

I was in Set 1 for everything!!!! So, Ha!!

### Re: Hola!

Linticular? Something to do with lint? Of Lint shape?

Lenticular, maybe? Meaning something shaped like biconvex lens?

Oh, here's a lesson for you. The word 'were', not 'where', is the past particible of the word 'are'. Now, you failed to specify a date of which I was stating in whch set I was in. During my first three years, I was in set one for english. For the other two years, I was in set three. Seeing as there was no set two, technically, I was in set two.
The only reason I was there, was because I was lazy and didn't do my homework. Miss "Oh so fantastic" Bradshaw, also, didn't like me. Seeing as I was one of the best English students in the school, it was an unjustified setting for me.

Plus, what was that you got in your CATs? Wasn't it lower than 127?
