    I'm TOTALLY dreading the 16th, really think I've messed up in Geog and English lit.
    Only one more to go tomorrow- General Studies, but not particularly worried about that. Good luck everyone x

    Aw, I hope that's never happened to you before in real life though? Dreams are strange things! My ones always revolve around the grades I get but with a twist - like last year, I remember a dream where the head of sixth form started ripping up everyone else's results and then mine just set on fire .

    General Studies and revision are two words that don't belong in the same sentence.

    Pretty much
    You had to do a 'citizenship log' to show how you had been a citizen and write about it in the exam... and go on and on about citizen's rights.. :K:
    Essentially... it was just crap.. lots of it

    Sounds it we did PSHE in Year 10 & 11 which basically replaced Religious Studies and there was meant to be sex education, first aid, health and social care and stuff but no exams or qualifications. The only thing we actually did the full course of was First Aid which was fun, the rest of it consisted of us sitting in the class talking because they couldn't find a teacher to babysit us for such a pointless lesson. And we "watched" the film Amazing Grace three times. I think that's the closest equivalent I can find to Citizenship that we had

    Very nervous! This wait is going to be horrible knowing that at least the next three years of my life depend on what results I get, and there's nothing I can do about it! You?
