    I'm hoping to do it at the start of year 12 , and finish it then so I don't have to worry about it in A2. Not sure what exactly I'm going to do it on but mainly History based.

    what other subjects are you doing, because im doing maths,physics,biology and chemistry,and am worried that taking the EPQ would be too far, and my grades would drop by quite a big margin.

    Hi! I'm Abbi Starting A levels next Tuesday (it's so close now, what even); I got 1A*, 3As and 7Bs in my GCSEs - was hoping for a few more As but oh well, I got higher than what I needed for sixth form so it's all good; I know what to do for A levels now!

    - What are your hobbies and interests?
    I love going to gigs/concerts (when i'm not broke...) and things. Big Netflix binger, ngl, but I love the sims too, and anything with animals. Most of my time recently has just been spent working, though

    - What subjects are you planning to take?
    Maths, chemistry, biology, and at the minute I've chosen Spanish but if I can't hack it I'm changing to sociology.

    - Your favourite subject(s)
    I loved GCSE Spanish and maths, but I'm a bit terrified of A level Spanish due to the even longer speaking exam. Hopefully I find it okay, though, as I love learning a new language.

    - Your ideal future occupation?
    The dream is to go to university to study medicine to become a doctor, but if that doesn't happen then biomedical science, biochemistry or neuroscience! I'm hoping I'll be able to do medicine as a post-grad degree or to be able to transfer onto a medicine course after my first/second year in a different degree, if it doesn't work out.

    Meh, they were okay; not as good as I hoped. Enough to still be accepted into a RG Uni for Law though. Time to smash A-levels now as they're the important ones

    Does anyone know if I'd be able to get into medicine with 2 A*, 8 A's and 2 B's (which might get contested seeing as in French I had 2 A* in reading and listening, an A in speaking and then a D in writing which is crazy as i was certain I'd done all to get a C at least (the guideline for a C was simply use two tenses- I definitely did that! I'm thinking perhaps they lost one of the two courseworks?)
    My mum spoke to a doctor the other day at her work and he seems to think I'll be fine since there will be less applicants to medicine when I apply since the junior doctor crisis recently. A friend says she knows a med student that got C's at GCSE but I find that unbelievable.
    Those are brilliant results and there's no reason why you shouldn't get in. Obviously though, your A level results need to be equally good. Not all med students have straight A*s

    Hi I'm Kryptonian and I got 3 GCSEs. I want to do A levels but we'll have to see what awaits me as all the sixth forms want 5A*-C so even I'm uncertain what's to come...

    so ducklings, my name's bluebookie and I'm 16 years old. I did ok in my GCSE's, not amazing, but ok. (4 A's, 4 C's, 2 B's and an E in Art, )
    But, that E was pretty much a given, tbh.
    - What are your hobbies and interests?
    I am mostly either editing content, on Youtube, binging Asian dramas, or eating. Sometimes all those things at the same time, especially during the summer. (I went outside very few times, most recently for school supplies)
    - What subjects are you planning to take?
    I had to change three of my original subjects I applied with, due to not meeting entry requirements, subject availability, and timetable issues.
    Psychology -> Psychology
    English Lit -> English Combined
    Film -> Philosophy
    History -> French
    That French seems random, but I enjoy the subject and got an A. I also aspire to be a polygot, so taking French to A Level is really good for me.
    - Your favourite subject(s)?
    English, English, English,- French was fun too
    looking forward to doing philosophy and psych next year for the first time,
    - Your ideal future occupation?
    I'm hoping to go into media production, though I'm not sure I'll make it. (people have pretty much been trying to drill that idea straight out of my head, even strangers)
    I aspire to be a director, script writer/supervisor or go into the editing and post-production field. I don't care what people will say about my A Levels or aspirations, it's my choice and it's what I'm happy with. (if I do manage to master the languages I want to, I might also consider translating, but for now I definitely want to go into film)

    ^I start school on Thurs for the induction/first day, and it's a new school in a completely different area. RIP

    Hi, I'm 17 - after having been home-schooled for seven years, I returned to school two years ago, which led to my deciding to resit Year 10 so that I had enough time to complete coursework and enhance my chances of achieving the best possible grades. Despite experiencing struggles (mostly because of other peoples' inabilities to accept me due to my refusal to conform for the sake of having an 'easier' time among my peers), I managed to get into my first-choice sixth form - one of the best performing grammar schools in the country - and I don't regret going back a year as it has enabled me to flourish. In the end, I achieved 3A*s, 5As and 2Bs (though, if re-marks go in my favour, four of the As may change into A*s) - solid proof that, if you put your mind to it and work hard, anything is possible (thus proving that home-schoolers are not a bunch of unsocialised weirdos)! Am starting sixth form next Monday and cannot wait - never again will I have to study the cells of a leaf! Also, my really good friend from my former school is going to the same sixth form as me, which makes me feel more confident as I'm initially quite shy around others.

    - What are your hobbies and interests?
    I regularly go to Zumba which, despite not being the sportiest person, has given me a perfect platform for ridding myself of any stress - if I've gained anything this summer, it is that exercise refreshes my mind and gives me a new perspective on things. Also, I love writing articles - ideally, I dream of working as a journalist, though media is such a hard industry to break into - while Netflix has become my saviour of the summer; I utterly love French films because they beautifully capture French culture, which makes me all the more desperate to visit the country!

    - What subjects are you planning to take?
    English Literature, French, Sociology and Media Studies (a 'soft' choice perhaps, but I want to enjoy my studies - essential for maximising my chances of achieving good grades). General Studies is compulsory in my school and, unlike some, I'll make an effort to revise for it.

    - Your favourite subject(s)?
    English Literature is my idea of sheer heaven because I love reading (bookworm alert!), yet I'm very passionate about Frencb because I taught it myself whilst being home-schooled, so it is quite important and precious to me if that makes sense!

    - Your ideal future occupcation?
    Ideally, I would love nothing more than to become a journalist, yet I don't think that trying to break into an overcrowded and competitive industry is wise if I want to earna decent salary. Therefore, I'm looking into becoming an English/French teacher because I like the idea of inspiring future generations to pursue their dreams and discover a passion for learning, which I view as utterly priceless.

    Should be fine as long as you apply wisely.
