    maths, science and german

    I was pretty average for the arts subjects bar german

    None lmao.

    Was predicted all Cs for GCSEs but came out with no Cs, just A*s/As/Bs.
    Yeah I was gassed

    And now they're super shocked that I do maths, bio and chem.

    I was top set in all except in year 10 i was moved down to set 2 for science "for a week or two and then see how you get on" but then they forgot about me, moved back up in year 11 tho :lol:

    i was predicted straight As for everything, but only got 2A*s 3As 3Bs 3Cs :cry:

    To learn linguistics at school is flashy?
    Oh yes, well I suppose you could say that

    You never got that sort of thing at my school.

    My school only has sets for maths (and PE in year 7). I've always been in top set for maths, although in KS3 most sets except one were pretty similar. I'm pretty sure I was in top set for PE in year 7 (not really sure why). Although we don't technically have history sets, there were two accelerated classes that did the GCSE in Year 10 and about three other classes who are doing it in Year 11 (this year).

    The way the timetable works out means there just isn't space for different sets in most subjects at my school. In KS3 we had all lessons except maths, PE and CDT/food tech/textiles with our forms. Now at GCSE it would be possible to have English and Science sets, but we don't.

    I was in top set for maths, science and ict, set 3 English, set 2 Spanish and set 2 humanities which I was moved up to top set for by GCSEs
    I took my GCSE music in 1 year in Year 9.

    Bottom for everything.

    Guess what? I proved them all wrong when leaving school passing all my GCSE's and now on a degree. f****************k them.
