    Hey!
    Ahaha ikr! The weird linguists are screwed mwahaaha. I'm not really looking forward to the holiday tbh I go on holiday and come back before my sixth form induction day. So much time not doing/aiming for anything might make me go slightly crazy! What have you chosen for A levels?
    Yup they are... Actually glad that I'm getting my french oral out of the way before easter but still...
    Ahaha, I know that feeling - after mocks, it was like 'Wait, I have nothing to do...' It felt ridiculous because I wanted to have a break but my brain had been wired to revision revision revision.

    I've chosen Biology, Chemistry, English Literature and Maths. Wbu?

    I keep trying to find the time to do a decent stint of revision/coursework/planning but life keeps getting in the way . Is anyone else having this problem? Whenever I finally find the motivation, suddenly something's on, and we are going out or seeing family etc. It's so frustrating!
    Ahaha, same here. The moment I crack down to do something, something (*cough* parents *cough*) always gets in the way....

    Don't stress over it though. I'm sure you'll find some time sometime.

    For the actual exams or for revision? I have one for actual exams but not for revision because I end up spending more time stressing over the perfection of my timetable and it just wastes revision time. And makes me go crazy.

    Really? :eek: (I'm sure there is a generalisation in there somewhere... )

    Nice choices! I don't take german atm and psychology isn't offered but still. Nice choices. Do you know what you want to do in the future yet? I have no clue.

    I change my career choice every day :mad: Thankfully, my options cover everything I have in my mind, but arrrghh how do I know what I want to be at 15? Really annoys me! I think I want to do either psychology or biology at uni (I've found unis that don't need chemistry for biology ), and if I do biology I might try to get onto a grad scheme for dentistry?

    I'm so confused Yourself?

    Argh, same here... Almost feel like just ditching sciences altogether sometimes... But then I remember that I might be considering something sciencey (wow, that terminology ) at university. Life...
    I was considering psychology the other day! Only glitch is that I don't take it currently (not offered) so it would be jumping in at the deep end. Going to have to do some research hey...
    Dentistry sounds fun! My childhood nightmare though

    So yeah, I'm probably just as confused as you Urgh, decisions. The American system is so appealing - I hate dropping stuff and you get to make a decision a bit later... The fees though. :eek:

    :five: To-do lists are so much more useful. Timetables are terrible - never stick to them and feel ridiculously guilty.
    Hmm, I could never do that. I'd die of procrastination. Flicking though is my way. Each to their own.

    Yeah in USA they have to pay upfront... That would kill me! Actually, on UCAS it says most universities allow you to do psychology with minimum 1 science subject. They know most schools don't offer psychology

    Maybe you're right; I was planning on doing Chemistry today and should be 2/3 of what I wanted to do.. but here I am procrastinating writing this and only have done 1/3

    At the start of year 10 I wanted to do it, but changed my mind as I found I was enjoying Spanish a lot more. At the start of year 11 I had my heart set on doing maths, further maths, physics and Spanish, but recently (last weekend, to be very precise), I decided that leaving French behind would be too difficult for me...

    I always get thoughts about leaving French It's so fun to learn languages and I've learnt so much, it just feels weird to be dropping it. The last lesson will be kinda hard for me! I just really want to focus on my German now

    That would make me go crazy! I have so many countdowns around my house, and all the calendars are fully labelled! The dates are on my fridge, in my room, in my planner, everywhere I get kinda excited knowing the end is near and this is a really huge part of my life
