    Yes, the play is quite intresting. Are you taking the exam at the end of this year? If you are what are you hoping to get?
    Not really. My school doesn't really do exams in Year 10. But if I was to do it I'd probably want a 6 or a 7. I don't have high hopes since my PEE paragraphs aren't that great.

    Our school doesn't spell it PEE because we're immature sh*ts 😂 instead we call them PEA, the a being analysis. I honestly hate PEE because it doesn't allow you to link pieces of evidence

    - 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.
    Well hello i share some of my rescourse eg revsion notes over on my thread its a year 10 thread so if you want to you can check it out and just write what your doing for GCSE xXx

    Hey , I am also doing AQA triple. We did topic one last year so I am doing about the blood and heart in biology , ions and ionic bonding in chemistry and circuits in physics. I feel the topics do increase in difficulty as we've gone along but i am not really struggling. I have a test in a few weeks in biology and I hope to get my targets soon.
    At school I do 10 subjects altogether: triple science, english lit + lang , maths, statistics, history and RE.

    I don't think it's an increase of difficulty as such. I think it's the fact that we're learning the same information but in a different way. For example, we used to be taught energy as things with energy and they are passed on through different ways. Now were taught about energy stores and energy transfers.

    I agree that there really isn't a noticeable increase in difficulty as you progress through the modules, except maybe the later Further Additional/Extension/"Triple" topics (B3/C3/P3). I, oddly, found Additional to be a decent amount easier than Core, to be honest. [C1 and P1] (I'm in Year 11 and I'm currently doing B3/C3/P3, for those who are wondering) I didn't even notice we were being taught P3/B3 material when we started it XD

    I'm doing An Inspector Calls too, I feel like JB Priestly was a very talented play-write being able to construct such a play. How're you finding it? I hate how we can't take books into exams anymore
