    I have no idea. I did work experience in a hospital and I loved it. I guess all the crap with Jeremy Hunt and the contracts didn't help, though.

    NISHA'S A-LEVEL JOURNEY

    I know the 'GYG' competition hasn't started yet but i want to do this before hand.
    I have recently just finished my GCSE's and now I'm onto Year 12.I will link my GCSE GYG thread down below.

    The 4 subjects that i have chosen are :
    Biology - OCR
    Chemistry - OCR
    Maths - Edexcel
    Economics - Edexcel

    I've never done OCR for any of my subjects so I'm quite nervous and (i don't know how to use the website ) - j.k I'm getting my way around it lol. I have decided to update you all guys every time i do some sort of revision for these subjects. I want to start revising before hand not like in GCSE where some subjects were last minute


    It would be amazing if you guys follow me with my thread and thank you very much to these people for helping me out with my GCSE journey starstudent7 surina16 brainzistheword NiamhM1801 mypetpikachu ?Hannah niv1234 MezmorisedPotato lilacpotato SophFlorence

    I would be happy to take anyone's advice and i will be happy to help you all out

    I won't be revising much during the summer. I will only be doing a small amount of revision mainly because I haven't ordered any textbooks or anything like that.

    Thank you surina16 for giving me the inspiration to do this from your thread.
    This is such a great idea. I need to do some work too but I don't know when I will get around to it. I haven't even really started yet. I'm doing pretty much the same subjects as you next year except that I'm going to be doing German instead of economics. My school just told me to enjoy summer but the other schools I applied to gave me stuff to do over summer. I have a maths workbook to finish before September for one of them and the other gave me a reading list for chemistry. I could copy and paste it here if you want?

    Btw what does GYG stand for?

    Yeah it's a lot. No I haven't.I don't think I will go to this school. I might read a few of the books and look at some of the websites just for the extra knowledge though. I'm not planning on doing it all.

    Good luck Nisha ! A-levels are a massive step up from GCSEs so work hard to do well 😁 Any questions you have let me know I studied maths (edexcel), chemistry (ocr A) , physics (Aqa) and biology (Aqa)
    How was Chemistry OCR A and maths ?
