    Yep. Otherwise why would there even be a specification?

    Haha, thanks! I thought so but someone told me that other things could still come up. I'm just being stupid

    Well you do have to know each point in detail so maybe that person didn't know it well enough?

    P.S.

    I don't like dressing up and dancing. And I don't really want to be in the same room as 'hormonal teenagers high on freedom and liberation'. Sorry.

    I was going for the food but then.... I dunno, is it really worth it?

    How's your preparation going?

    Ya I feel you I'm a sciences student and have to sit the IELTS this weekend - have done sub-zero preparation so not too chuffed about it! I miss GCSE lit although it was my worst grade by a long shot but it was so much fun! What novels are you studying?

    You're taking A-levels or...?

    Better prepare - don't regret it! :P (like I can preach... :rolleyes:)

    Yeah, it's so fun I can't bring myself to drop it just yet. Bit like weaning myself off the humanities side - the sudden conversion to all sciences would kill me.

    Studying Pride and Prejudice and also Romeo and Juliet (not a novel but yeah.)

    Yeah I'm doing too many science and maths A levels for my own good

    Look I think I do need to prepare but I just have no idea how! I have no time to do practice papers and there is nobody to mark them anyway even if I did them... As for the speaking I speak English most of the day so how much more prep can you do for it? Any advice would seriously be greatly appreciated!

    Yeah sciences are quite painful. I took a language last year to dilute them but this year I decided to take up on more maths instead so I don't have time for languages! Ah Pride and Prejudice... I attempted it once but I don't think I got beyond the first couple of pages! I did Gatsby and Oscar Wilde back in the day, I don't think we could have studied better books!

    Ahaha, all science and maths?

    No idea about IELTS so can't help there I'm afraid! Maybe have a look online for tips? :confused:

    Pride and Prejudice is so long - three volumes... Read Of Mice and Men the other day - it's so short!
    Ahaha, P&P is a bit tedious as a read - analysing it though just makes it make so much more sense so I'm not complaining!

    guess you got lucky with your choices.

    Yeah all the sciences, maths, further maths... Makes me feel like going insane at times, even though I haven't even reached the climax of my studies! What subjects are you taking/ thinking of taking?

    No worries! The internet is not a friend on this issue as most of the tips are for those who aren't particularly fluent in English, whilst in my case it is my mother tongue so I'd imagine the approach would be quite different.

    I see! I might give classics another shot someday, although I doubt that will be in the near future! I was indeed, although thorough enjoyment didn't help get the grade in the end. Funnily enough, I was consistently top in the grade throughout the two years but the actual GCSE was a major f*ck up...

    :eek: Kudos to you! I'd die. I'm thinking of taking: Biology, Chemistry, Maths and English Lit.

    Oh I see.

    Classics are well... classic () but they do take longer to read and there is always more than meets the eye with them. I really need to read more....
    That's a shame. :sad: At least you enjoyed the books though.

    I'm just not into dressing up and dancing and watching 'in my classmate's words, "a pool of hormonal teenagers, high on freedom and liberation".

    Although... if we were given the opportunity to dress up casually I might go but still, it's prom...

    What about you?


    P.S.

    Sorry for the horrible grammar
    Yeah I'm going. Tbh we had a winter formal which I thought was going to be **** but it actually turned out to be pretty good. I'm not usually a fan of dancing but I just sort of changed a bit that night.

    I've thought about it but have no real clue as to a definite idea.... I've only just settled on my A-level options and that was hard enough!

    Urgh life choices and my ability to mess them up...

    In all fairness, I'm pretty much the same, but my friend asked me to go with him and I didn't have the heart to say no...

    I've tried on about three dresses, and one pair of shoes XD I'm going serious dress shopping tomorrow, though. The only thing I've really sorted is my date - we don't even know how we're getting there

    You still have tonnes of time, no worries! I almost dropped physics following GCSEs but now its a condition in all of my offers (ie all my courses are strongly connected to physics so they specified that they want such and such grade in physics...)
