    Hi! My name is Khaya and I'm obviously in year 10.

    I've been doing GCSE maths since beginning of Year 9 and GCSE Science and RE after the Easter term in Year 9

    Subjects:
    English Language(AQA)
    English Literature(AQA)
    Maths(Edexcel)
    RE(Edexcel)
    Triple Science(AQA)
    French (AQA)
    History(WJEC)
    Music(OCR)

    I'm not too sure how I feel about the new GCSEs and I honestly don't know what to expect of them (nor does everyone else,especially the teachers), to be honest.It is quite annoying that they have increased the content and my teachers have mentioned how difficult it is going to be to cram the content into the space of 2 years. Normally we choose our options in year 9(which my year was the last year to do so) but now the younger years have to choose their options in year 8(the current year 9's had to choose their options last year). However, they are lucky as they get more time to do learn the content than we do (lol)

    Hopefully it works out in the end though!

    - Introduce yourself! - Hey, I'm Joey, I'm 14 and just started Y10

    - What are your hobbies and interests?- CoSpace/RoboCup (A robotics competition, reguarly participate in that)

    - How many GCSEs are you doing? 8 I believe- English, Maths, Triple or double Science (we don't choose until end of y10), RS Short course (short course of RS is mandatory at my school, but you can opt for the full course), and 4 others.

    - What subjects are you taking (include your exam board to find others studying the same things as you)?
    History (AQA)
    Computer Science (school hasn't decided which board we are going to be using yet so we are just learning basics like Binary, Hex, etc.)
    German (unsure of exam board)
    Music (OCR, i'm very behind in terms of theory and a little behind on playing skills so this is something i'd be interested in revising with someone else)

    - Do you think you're ready for the new GCSEs?
    Yes, have a feeling i'll do very bad in Music though xD, Computer Science however i hope to do well in

    - What's your favourite subject(s)?
    Computer Science and Music

    - What is your dream career or dream uni?
    Maybe MIT in America (lord knows how that would work xD), maybe Cambridge or Oxford if i was to get in. Career- definitely something to do with computers, maybe software engineer or working for a games company

    - How do you feel about going into Year 10?
    Excited, looking back on Y9 it was so relaxed compared to year 10. Have definitely got to start doing homework quicker and revising more

    - Also, feel free to share any revision skills and resources you have
    Quizlet i found was an AMAZING tool- also the CGP revision guides (the ones around £7) prove to look amazing, Have only got the History one so far but i'm ordering more soon

    EDIT: Seen some of you discuss texts used for English, we are reading Frankenstein.

    Hey!

    I'm taking music with OCR too. How are you finding it? What instrument do you play? How are your theory skills?

    Hello I am in Year 10,
    I am very worried about my GCSEs, i'm hoping to get most 9s and maybe an 8 but i really want those 9s. I am considering starting light revision to help with my GCSEs.

    The subjects I am taking are:
    Trip Science - OCR 21st century
    English Literature - AQA
    English lang - AQA (i think)
    Maths - AQA
    Ethics Edexcel I think

    French - AQA Higher
    Business - AQA
    Computer Science - OCR

    I am mainly worried about French I really want to get a high level in French (8-9), and English which I think might be hard,I have heard business is easy and I am really good at Maths and Science. I hope to maybe be a doctor and study at a good univeristy, I'm aiming for like one of the top 5 univeristies in England for medicine.

    Please if anyone has advice on how I can get nearly all 9s. Also any1 who is good at french or english or any of the subjects im taking. And wheter I should start revising now. Which I'm planning 2 once my huge amazon textbook order comes in (ordering in a few days).

    For French I really advise you to look at vocab. Even if you're not good at tenses, having a general knowledge on subjects is really helpful especially in reading and listening. I can't really help you much with the new writing and speaking because I'm doing the old spec but I guess you could arrange plenty of mock exams.
