    All of them, especially maths- I really want a B! I just had a look at the exam timetable and now I'm even more terrified Can't believe we've only got 9 months...
    Where did you get an exam timetable? Or are all the exam timings on the exam board websites already?

    Hey, do you all have work experience?
    At my school we do work experience in July after we've done all our exams. We started writing our CVs at school near the end of Year 10.

    Which A-Levels are you deciding to take? Also were you able to balance extra-curricular with revision effectively?
    I've chosen Maths, Psychology, Chemistry and Biology. I think that for myself especially up to April I was perfectly find with my extra curricular but when it came to May I didn't want to jeopardise my exams at all so I put them on hold until exam season was over. I know some people who did much more than myself but still they managed to balance the clubs and come out of the exams successful. With GCSEs you just really need to listen in class and really do ask if you have any questions. If you have any revision guides and you know the teacher would be going over a particular topic in lesson, why not just read that page the day before? Trust me it helps a lot! Hope this helped

    How did you find it? Do you remember what the six mark question was about?
    I think it was okay, how about you? And i'm not sure what the six mark was, I think it was something to do with comparing two substances or something?

    They're on the exam board websites, or at least AQA and Edexcel - they're provisional, but they shouldn't change much.

    I done C2 and C3 together, just as I finished C2 the invigilators handed out the C3 paper. I personally found C2 waaaayyyyy harder than C3. But all in all it was a decent paper. When are you getting your results?

    Oh nice. What are you hoping to get?


    Sweet. What are you hoping to get in statistics? & did this include coursework - what did you get in that also?
    I'm hoping for A* in RS, A/A* in English lit and A in science. However, after the exams i'm thinking my English may be a B.

    Sounds like a good plan, now you just have to make sure you stick by it. It will work if you keep your time organised I guess.

    Hey, do you all have work experience?
    Our school gave us 2 weeks off (we came back and had the last week of school before summer) to do ours I went to a local law firm for mine, for both weeks

    I know primary schools were common, one of my friends went to an engineering facility, another went to a roller skating rink....it was really varied
