it is possible tho
I guess so.
It is just really difficult, but if you do do it then I'll bow down to you as I will never ever be able to replicate that feat.

Backup plan if I don't score high marks:

Christmas.

Jk but if it doesn't go according to plan then I've already formulated my backup plan.

(I've done it several times, so I'm talking out of experience here)

It's actually real easy if you don't postpone your studies to the last 3 or 4 weeks before the exam.

I wish I had 3-4 weeks. I have 2 days until C.Sc and 6 until Math. I have been studying beforehand, but ya know, you just get those butterflies sometimes.

Lol our school started in April and we're giving our Midterms. My mom and dad don't accept that, and since it's near an exam, I want to earn the cube, not buy it. A person can buy their way to the top of F1, but can still be slower than everyone else. I prefer to work hard and get the cube. And no, the finals in my school aren't easier than the PSSAs or any other types of finals. (Yes, I've given the PSSAs). 14$here is roughly 1029 rupees. That's... yeah. Plus, whats the point? My mom and dad already set the goals so I can't change their mind. I did that last year for a 4x4 and a 2x2. I usually ask for cubes after annuals, but since the 2021's coming up, I asked for it after the half yearly (that and the syllabus is easier). My mom and dad always set high goals for anything, so I try my best to excel in those. Plus, I have a backup plan if the ducks fly north: Christmas #### Cubing Forever ##### Member Lol our school started in April and we're giving our Midterms.

Alright, so the first week of exams is over. That means:

-Math
-English
-S.Sc
The second week has started, and due to a storm, Science got delayed until Friday. So that's good. Bad News: I have 2L first. Which means its going to be hard. On the bright side tho, there's going to be no 5 mark questions in Literature! Yahoo! Science is going to be good, English is good, and Math went the best, so I think I might be able to get the cube!

Had a session yesterday which was ruined by the Big Chungus song, but made decent progress. Still stuck on that 21.xx average, so I'm aiming to learn full OLL to aid me in getting to Sub 20. The thing is, I just have these pauses after every step, which is annoying, but I can't stop it. So I'm also practicing slow solves. My V Perm alg is slow, so does anyone have any recommendations for a new V Perm alg?

I'm actually ok with rotations, not everything has to be rotationless.

Practice will help get rid of that, but for the first couple of steps, try inspect the cross fully and consistently do it blindfolded if you haven’t already, and use that time to start looking for F2L pieces.

I use the RUyF one and it kinda sucks. I also need a new v perm. (And random thing but are you attending ultimatecuber0418s online cubing comp?)

Unfortunately I am not, because I don't want people to see my e-mail address. I usually only attend CSUL, which is kind of the same thing, but it doesn't reveal the email.

But still, rotationless algs are SIGNIFICANTLY faster than algs with rotations, especially for last layer algs
(this applies only to mid-alg rotations)

Yes yes I know, but they usually sacrifice on easier turns. With a regrip, things become much easier. I'll experiment with your algs when I get the time!

And I still use the RUFy V perm which I can sub-1.8 on it.

ARGGGHHH I have a competitive exam, the ISTSE on November 7th! So that means even more pressure now! And it's only two days before another exam, and its 5 days after yet another exam! When will I get to cube? And I think from next week onwards, we'll have holidays, but we'll be getting Holiday Home Assignments! I just can't get a break to cube!
