    How come you're doing mocks so soon?

    I had like a panic attack in my English sats so i only got a 4a and all my other grades were 6s. To this day, my reports say I'm gonna get a 6 in English even though that's the grade I'm currently working at.

    we are doing mocks on every subject which is kind of stupid because we have barely covered any of the content .
    however it should be okay as we are told what to revise

    Hi my name's Caitlin and i'm obviously in year 10.
    The subjects i'm doing are:
    English Literature (AQA) predicted 8
    English Language (AQA) predicted 8
    Maths (OCR) predicted 9
    (I'll probably do further maths too)
    Double Award Science (AQA) predicted 8
    RE (AQA) predicted 8
    History (Edexcel) predicted 8
    French (AQA) predicted 8
    Music (WEJC) predicted 8
    Drama (AQA) predicted 8

    My passion is music and that's like my whole life but i also love writing so the essay based subjects like english, history and re are also some of my faves. I really dislike science but i'm quite good at it and the same goes for maths.

    My main struggle in school is stress. I struggle with anxiety and the workload makes me so stressed. I was panicking earlier on because i have a lot of homework to do. I hate speaking in class and i struggle to ask for help for teachers if i don't get something.

    What's even the point. In my ks3 'mocks' I wouldn't revise so I'd see what the lowest I could get. 😂

    I'm with you on the maths and science. With anxiety, as a former sufferer, I see asking for help as something you NEED. It's better to look stupid for 5 minutes than to be stupid forever.

    I'm on Edexcel too for History, what are your topics
    We've been learning about the Treaty of Versailles, economic issues after WW1 in Germany, the start of the Nazi party, how Hitler got involved, what made Hitler a good leader, etc. Oh, and the Weimar Republic and how some wasn't very good.

    Our school is as well. We have work experience the first week of july. I'm just going to waitress at the local restaurant because then I have experience to get me into a job when I leave high school.

    An A&E department would be really eye opening, in my opinion

    Hi. I'm currently in year 10. I'm having so many tests this week. I just received my results of my chemistry test where I got 32/38. Not the best result but apparently the test was quite hard as the highest score was 34/38. (I'm doing triple science).

    We did an English comprehension exam (English is my worst subject). I didn't finish the exam. We had 45 minutes to answer a 4 mark, 8 mark, 12 mark and 20 mark question. But its our first english exam this year.
