    I don't know if I'm too late but my name is Simone
    I don't really have any hobbies these days other than Netflix
    I am doing 11 GCSE's
    I just sat my statistic one got an A
    Not bad for a course I learnt in a term

    I am doing English language and literature, Spanish, RE, Maths, Tripple science, history and Music.

    My AQA exams are English and triple science
    My OCR exams are history and music
    My Edexcel exams are maths, statistics and RE
    I'm not sure what my Spanish one is

    If anyone could help my with GCSE Music it would be much appreciated.

    Hi guys! Hope you're all doing well.
    Just out of interest, where's everyone up to with their notes for their subjects? As in the final ones? I'm nowhere near finished and I just wanted to know whether anyone else is in the same position. Honestly I don't think it'll help me to finish and finalise all my notes now, since it's easier for me to do it a fortnight or so before the exam. But the problem is that the exams are so close together next year... Has anyone got a solution for this?

    I'm nowhere near finish too, don't worry. That's why tomorrow I'm going to the library for the day so I'm away from distractions and get a lot done, because I don't want to be worrying and stressing too much in y11

    Hi Simone,

    No, you're not too late to join the chat. I'm actually studying the same texts for English. When do you start school or have you already started?

    Hi MissChameleon I actually start school on the 7th September. By the way do you have any tips on studying the poems because that is probably my weakest point

    I start on the 5th . I recommend annotating all your poems if you haven't done so already. You can search online for poem analysis' to assist you. I find this helps to understand the poems. Try finding links, similarities and differences between the relationship poems such as common themes and practice annotating unseen poems since this is definitely going to come up in the exams.

    I'm doing OCR music, I'd be happy to help if you're stuck at all.

    A great website for revision is

    Have you done any coursework? How's it gone?

    Thanks I'll give that website a try in the morning. My coursework is going alright, I feel it could go better, all my pieces are a b- but my music teachers proper harsh but I want comfortable A's so I need to revisit my pieces when I go back to school.

    Thanks I've annotated them however, I find when I look at the original poem my mind just goes blanc and I can't remember half of my annotations

    Hi, I'm doing AQA music. What do you have to do in OCR coursework? We have to do a group and solo performance, and then a classical composition, as well as a composition of our choice. What do you play in music?

    Hi

    It's quite similar really, we have 2 compositions, a solo performance, an ensemble performance and a written commentary about the solo performance and first composition.

    We have a listening exam and composition exam as well

    I play the piano, violin and bass. I'm looking to start guitar as well, it looks vvvvvvvvv fun

    How's your coursework going?

    Hey, I'm Alyaapenguin, i will be doing 24 exams this year and i'm kinda freaking out
    I study:
    Maths
    English lang.
    English Lit.
    German
    Geography
    Religious studies
    Computer Science
    Economics
    Additional Science
    Further Additional science

    I guess my favorite subject is maths, because i enjoy it and i'm confident in it, but with the new spec it's getting pretty worrying.
    Yet English is probably a no chance for me! There's too much to memorise and i feel as though 4 exams with a lot to remember for is too draining and that's a disadvantage to me because i have 20 other exams to do.


    For A-Levels, i want to go into my school's sixth form and study: Maths, Physics, Chemistry, German and Biology.
    I don't exactly know what career i'll head into, but i know that these are the subjects i am willing to do and enjoy.

    I know exactly how you feel I have around 24 exams and maths was my strongest but I'm not really sure with this new specification, and I've never been too good with English.

    Wow that's a lot
    I play guitar, it's great yeah. I'd like to start playing a bit of bass as well, but I'm pretty poor atm tbh xD

    Meh, performance is easy for me as I've been playing for nearly a decade now xD, but I find the composition quite hard as I'm not that creative really tbh
