    Yeah I guess so! I'm not going to live this far from public transport when Im older!

    Ah that's cool! You must have learnt French when you were living there?

    Yeahhh, that would be horrible! I don't want to imagine it.

    Did you not have to show them your results slip from last year? We have to bring ours in but saying that I doubt my teacher will realise either! Yeah, have to tell them at some point, it's on the records I think but I'm not sure if my form teacher even checked it.
    I'm glad it went well though
    Mine is on 4th Sept so ages away still!
    Same here! Its also really helpful to start driving asap, makes your life so much easier in rural england.

    Yep, i speak broken french! Which is why i will be doing A level french!
    My knowledge of broken french atm is enough to give me a head start, but certainly not enough to even get a grade E.
    Eventhough i spent most of my childhood in mauritius, im not mauritiun.

    London with no buses = the worst nightmare ever!! :eek:

    Yep, i showed them my gcse results from last year and they didnt realise the date on it.
    We definitely have to tell them when the year begins. I am only telling my form tutor/mentor.
    Isnt the 4th a bit late?? Colleges are normally prepared by then for the year ahead.
    I hope it goes well for you too!

    Lots of fields to have big parties in. That's it.
    LOL, i feel for you.
    Dont worry though, you have to 2 years of college and then you're off to uni!

    Yeah it's true although busses are slightly cheaper!

    did you take GCSE French too? Ooh yeah it's a good idea, if your parents can speak it you can practise with them! Ah, at least you have a bit of an edge.
    You're not? :confused:

    Haha, I wonder if mine will too. Yeah I was just going to tell my form teacher for now unless I need to tell the others so some reason!
    I thought that but 1/3 of the year go in on Tues, 1/3 weds, 1/3 thurs. then they have till Monday to create all our timetables. I would have thought they would need longer! Then Tuesday we start our first proper day I thing!

    do you know your exams boards and I'll add you in
    Add me in for AQA Physics A and EDEXCEL Maths and Further Maths.I'm not 100% sure on my 4th subject yet.For Maths I think it would be wise to list the optional modules that people are taking:I'm taking C1,C2,C3.C4,FP1(Mandatory modules) and S1(AS M),D1,(A2 M),M1(AS FM),M2(AS FM),FP2(A2 FM),FP3 (A2 FM)and M3(A2 FM).

    It's a nice idea but would take up a lot of space. Maybe just the AS ones? And you don't really need to put C1+2 as everyone will be doing them. If this does happen it's M1 (Maths) FP1 M2 D1 (Further Maths) for me.

    Thats why said to list the optional modules people are taking because C1-C2 and FP1 are compulsory.What grades are you predicting yourself?I'm predicting myself AABB for AS and A*A*A for A2.I think I am going to take 4A2s if I get more than a C in Physics and an A in Geography(not 100% sure I'm taking this at the moment).

    I'm predicting AAAA at AS (hopefully) and A*AAA at A2. I will drop a subject at A2 if I do badly at AS but I currently plan to do 4.

    If I get AABA and the B is in Physics or AAAA I will be taking all 4 to A2-I would be very surprised to not get AA in Maths and Further Maths but if I were to get a B in Further Maths I would take 4 to A2 providing I got an A in Geography.I think I may be feeling anxiety at the minute, caused by excessive claims of how hard A-Level is, because I feel like I can only get an A in Maths and Further Maths because I'm great at Maths and in any subjects, I am going to have to work hard to get a B.I will still have to work hard to get an A in Maths and Further Maths but I will probably only have to work as hard as a normal GCSE, which still means a lot of work.I'm lucky because of my Maths ability it will only be like taking 3 A-Levels in workload.

    Maths is my strongest point too (A* at GCSE and A in FSMQ). I know A-Levels will obviously be a step from GCSE. However, I think that people over exaggerate it and I don't buy it. As long as you put the hours in studying, there's no reason that you shouldn't reach the grades you want. What's your aim for University?

    A-Levels are very difficult and my sisters January Results were BCCD and she got 2A*s and a lot of As at GCSE.In the bold part, you talk as if A-levels are easier than GCSEs because I tried very hard at GCSE and did not get 13A*s and 3As which I wanted-14A*s and 2As were the maximum possible grades and I took German early in Y9 and was predicted a C and wanted an A but I did manage to get an A.However, I wanted to get an A* in RE and Geography and I revised very hard for them( about 20-30 hours) and I didn't.

    I want to study Maths and get a career in Pure Maths Research and I'm not sure about which university to go to.I would like to go to Cambridge or Warwick but Cambridge is unlikely because you need pretty much two 1s in STEP and considering that its not taught to you its virtually impossible because the papers are much much harder than A-Levels and it would too risky to apply to Cambridge because you only get a firm and insurance.I am also very concerned about how it would be possible to move away, finding my way to Newcastle University will be very difficult from Sunderland and that is my minimum aim and my closest university that offers Maths.I don't have very good organisational skills, I can't read maps other than what is necessary for Geography and struggle to be independent in anything other than Academia.I'm already worrying how I will be able to find my way around my College because it was really tough to do in the Induction Days and the routes are very long but I will probably manage-Secondary School was easy to get around because they had all the door numbers in order of the floors and all blocks were clearly labelled.I'm either arrogant or pessimistic in life never anything in between.

    Nice, I hope it goes well for you and I'm sure you'll cope. I had Oxbridge aspirations but I've given up on them a bit. I want to study Mechanical Engineering at Imperial. I used to want to go to Warwick but I've decided I definitely want to move out of Coventry. The STEP papers do look very hard but I don't want to do a Maths degree luckily. Other things I'm potentially interested in are a Physics degree or Chemical Engineering.

    I'm sort of the opposite to that. I didn't put enough effort into my GCSEs. I'd revise 1 or 2 days before each exam by just reading over the revision guide and I got 5A* 4A (School predicted me 1A* 8A). Maybe this is why I have a different mindset to you going into next year. My thinking is that I haven't studied previously and I got good grades so in A-Levels if I start studying a lot , I should be able to achieve what I want.
