    Lol you didn't start GCSEs in Y8, the title is so misleading.

    If you started GCSEs in Y10, you have only been doing it for 7 months.

    With the new changes, it's perfectly reasonable to be doing fewer GCSEs.
    I meant we started in 2014 not year 8

    Please bear in mind that we'll be one of the first years taking the new Harder GCSEs and there are no past papers that can prepare us for that. We have nothing to go on but the new teaching syllabus
    Except everyone else will be in the same position.

    Can she do this. It really pi**** me off I was doing just fine in all of my subjects and now I have to drop one because my year is a Guinea Pig year. Can we protest or anything to keep the same things were doing now. Urgh If only I was born in 1999 as opposed to 2001. I know its about quality over quantity but this shouldn't be happening since were 2 years in already couldn't they try this on the next year? I've been speaking to all my teachers and they said its a bunch of tossh aswell. Urgggh That new head has been an utter pain ever since she arrived. I swear am seriously slacking now.

    The change wont happen till September 2016 is there anyway this could be prevented till the. Bear in mind I'm in Year 10 and our mocks are in June. They can't just drop a bombshell on us like this. I've been feeling very doscouraged lately and my Mum is pi**ed too. Atter all the progress I've been making. I have not suffered through 5 years of hell in this sh!thole for nothing.

    Ok sorry for my over reaction and language I've just been so put off by this lately and can you believe they were gonna make us do our mocks next week after that assembly. Thank God it was moved to June urghhhhh!
    you're in year 10 enjoy life while you can and at the end of the year drop the subject you hate most

    In fact if i wasnt going to fight the system i would have identified the one I wanted to drop and be trying significantly less in that.
    Think you can manage to muster your year into a strike?
    Get yourself into the DM doing a sad outrgaed face.

    Strike maker or revolutionary would look great on your CV.

    this is very true

    also OP school forced me to drop further maths bc they were 'concerned with it affecting my normal maths gcse'

    >gets A* in maths twice in mocks
    >gets A in fm with 3 days revision and 0 lesson time being taught FM

    dont worry if i can get over that you can get over thIS
    I gettt you, but I dont intend on being detrimental, I'm just saying you WONT regain any optimism by sharing your problems on tsr, if her school made her drop a subject then appeal, phone, do something physical not social if you know what I mean. If people did that, what a better world would this b

    What subject is it? Schools are judged differently now, with certain subjects weighted more highly than others so that may be a factor.
