    I'll have to wait until after mocks for my actual predictions but generally all my teachers expect at least an A, I did core science GCSE and I got an A for that. Wbu?

    Predicted all A's and A*'s, achieved an A* already in health and social care. Except predicted a B in maths however I've knuckled down and my teacher says he's confident I'll get an A if I put the effort in although I definitely struggle with maths!

    Well done! With maths the more you practise, the better you'll do. I was always good at maths but for some reason I couldn't pull my grade higher than a C in year 10 even though I was top set and understood it, but then I started practising questions and exam technique and managed to get an A* at the end of they year, now I just have to try and maintain it.

    Yeah the school got a new head teacher so i assume they didn't like the new management, and I doubt it's going to get better so I'm going elsewhere for sixth form

    My school is exactly the same. They brought in a new head teacher in September 2013 and since then every single one of my teachers has left :/

    Does anybody else hate when teachers share a class between them, and it seems like they don't communicate because they never seem to know what the other has or hasn't taught?

    I just feel like the little important thugs get missed because of it.

    In Physics we get taught by two teachers because our actual teacher is away but they cover one topic from the syllabus each so there isn't an overlap. Why don't you ask your teachers to do that? It's so much more easier - albeit annoying because one lesson you're learning about the motor effect and the next, learning about radioactive decay....

    It's better to be a perfectionist and worry about being bad and work hard than to be lazy, think you're amazing and then not work because of it...

    If you're trying, then it's probably better than you think - dw about it. :console:

    I have a listening exam and the rest is practical - I can't remember the weightings but it's heavily in favour of practical, understandably. I'm on Edexcel. Theory makes the listening so much easier though
    That sounds alright. Have you done any of the practical yet?

    yh you have 'art mocks' which actually count towards your final grade, as it is placed in your coursework book...
    oh the joys of artistic studies
    ahh I do art too! I don't know when mocks are though. My theme for coursework this year is micro and macro (last year it was flora and fauna) and I'm making a sculpture

    I'm doing my unit 2 composition this term but apart from that I haven't done anything else. Practical is in April and unit 4 composition in the spring term.

    Oh and I'm on AQA, I got mixed up :facepalm:
