    In order of descending difficulty I'd say Biology, Physics then Chemistry. Although my memory is a bit patchy.
    I swap bio and physics! I hope for A*s in all though.

    Our school has a big awards ceremony, where you get a certificate for completing it. Then there are awards for getting highest in the year in each individual subject and then other prizes.
    :awesome: if I don't win Maths...

    What were they again
    I remember the B6 one about eutrophication and a factory (I messed that one up), B4 was capture-recapture ( did well on that one) and cant remember the third. For some reason for the B5 kidneys come to mind.

    I was thinking kidneys as well

    I think I did well on those (but last year I thought that, was wrong )

    Same but A*A*A would be okay. I'm usually very confident, bordering on arrogant but I don't have a great feeling about Biology and Physics. Chemistry I would bet money on getting an A* all my strongest topics came up, it's like the exam was written to suit me.

    I wouldn't be okay with it

    I'd agree. Physics ---> Chemistry ---> Biology in order of confidence

    You can go and collect your certificate, then there are awards for everyone who got 8 A*/A, 9A*/A, 10*A/A and then those who got 11*A/A. Then there's individual subject awards, awards for contribution to school (I think my teacher said I'm getting one for quizzes :cool: ) and then if anybody has one, awards for top in Northern Ireland. So yeah, should be fun.

    I didn't win Maths last year, but this year I have two bets going for Add.Maths!

    Yeah about half the year do 11! Occasionally some people do 12 (maybe 1 person per year) and the school record is 14 (all A*)!

    They used to do LLW too a year early so half the year would have 12 GCSEs!

    I did that exam! Physics was the hardest imo :yep:
    thank you! someone that agrees. everyone else says it was easier than biology. i reckon physics was the hardest, chemistry the easiest.

    so what do you think you got? what grade are you aiming for and what do you need in this exam to get it?

    I agree with that!!

    A*, I want an A*, I had 137/140 in unit 1, apparently full marks in coursework so I have leeway

    Highest in my school is 9 GCSEs, probably done by about 15 students (including me). I'm hoping to get the 2nd best results in my year because one girl is nailed on for 9A*.

    Is that all? :rolleyes:

    I know! I'd love one! Our walls are littered with them, though they seem to have dwindled in years, one fella had I think 3 1st/ joint 1st.

    My hopes are Spanish, Add.Maths and French. Spanish I got full marks in orals, 38/40 and 40/40 in the listening and reading, but not sure of writings, I wrote them as they were learnt, just hope they're given full marks! French is the same as Spanish, but I got 39/40 in the listening. (bloody crosswords!) Ahhh how I wish I knew the subjunctive back then.
    Then in Maths I reckon I've dropped 2 marks in paper 1 and 3-5 on paper 2, but somebody is bound to have maxed it.

    Do any other exam boards have them?
