    Starting tomorrow doing Maths, Further Maths, Spanish and Geography with General Studies as a pointless compulsory add-on :/.

    I think tomorrow is just for study skills and team building so it should be ok. But still...mreeeeeehhhhh...

    Thanks. [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Grace/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image001.png[/IMG]

    I really don't know... I know that one piece I got 26/30, which would mean on the other piece I would have to have gotten 7/30... which definitely isn't true. I remember getting 18/30.. but whatever, I needed a B overall so I'm cool with it. [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Grace/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image001.png[/IMG]
    Haha, well that is rather strange! Are they externally moderated? I guess they could have been changed during the process

    Yeah they are. I guess they both could have gone down, but I wouldn't have imagined I dropped around 15 marks... especially because my oral coursework seemed fine. Oh well.

    Ahhhh hello and welcome to the thread.

    Good to see someone else other than me doing WJEC German.
    Definitely! I'm the only one in my the area of the county doing German, since Spanish has pretty much replaced it in all schools. Most of our language/English exams are with WJEC at my school, even though we are not in Wales?! They tend to be the nicest exam board with marks less on grammar and more communicating. Are you having an external oral examiner? Our school always brings WJEC examiners in instead of teachers, they actually score you better, even though they seem difficult. I remember starting a chat about kayaking, before blazing into a argument after he said 'women do not deserve maternity leave and must quit their job'. I suddenly became an extreme feminist and I think that's how I got an A.

    Seriously? French is most popular here, followed by German, then Spanish. Some schools don't even offer Spanish. My high school didn't, and the sixth form college I'm going to doesn't either. My high school didn't do anything with WJEC. Yeah, the French teacher at my college said that's why the use WJEC, and they also bring in an external person. Hahaha, it sounds pretty easy.

    Yeah, that does seem strange :/ I guess it could have been an admin problem. Oh well, done and dusted now, time to look forward to the joys of A-level instead

    French does seem to be the most popular, but there seems to be an even mix between Spanish and German really. My current school doesn’t offer Spanish, and another one nearby that I wanted to go to offers Spanish but not German, which was sad. There are a few that offer all three though, and one nearby that offers French, Spanish, German, Russian, Ancient Greek, Latin and Japanese (It’s a private school)

    Do people think doing Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics and History in school and self teaching Maths is a good idea. I have an A* in GCSE Maths and an A in FSMQ both without much effort. This is only for AS Maths btw not A2.

    I don't know it's 5 hard AS' and I'm not sure if my school would let me. I would have to do a lot more work than if I did 4 but I am genuinely interested in all those subjects even if History isn't very relevant to what I want to do.

    Wow, how do they even find all those teachers to be able to teach it.

    Mind you, my Year 8 Science teacher was only 23 and he was fluent in Russian and German... I had always heard 'rumours' of him being a total **** in detentions and he'd sometimes shout at you in Russian, or make you do lines in Russian (he'd give you a dictionary). One time I hate to write four haikus (one about each season) in Russian. Probably the worst detention I've ever had.

    He also used to give us class detentions and make us stare at the clock for two minutes in silence. If you smiled or looked away then the two minutes would start again. I'm pretty sure he was a psychopath... Such a cool guy though!

    Hmm, I think puberty ruined me.
