    Have any of your teachers had mini breakdowns yet? My Geography one was first to fall victim.

    I'm expecting them all to be throwing chairs around the room before half term.

    Such fun.

    A French teacher at my school yelled at everyone then broke down crying. It was her recently deceased stepdad's birthday that week, she was ill and the head of department was off. Stress + grief = not good

    Same here. I'm going to start looking from the end of my revision guide backwards so at least I'll have seen it before...

    Maybe look through the syllabus for the parts you haven't studied and read up on them in the textbook so you're prepared? That way, when your teacher gets round to them but has to rush through it, you'll understand the concepts quicker - win-win situation for both of you.

    Hope you do finish tho.

    No, but has anyone in your classes had a mini breakdown yet? (students?)

    I'm ashamed to say that i've had two in the past week and I'm still trying to get back on my feet for Monday.

    We had a few for the mocks so I can see them happening soon.

    If you don't me asking - why did you have the mini breakdowns?

    Nothing yet, I'm sure there will be once the teachers have marked our mocks. They are currently doing this thing of hinting how they went because they're not allowed to tell us... I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

    That's a good idea Which exam board are you on for Science? I'm doing Cambridge IGCSE and unfortunately there are no CGP revision guides for this exam board I do have a CIE revision guide for Biology though and it seems okay but for some reason it's all in black and white (no colour at all!) and just looking at it bores me to death, most likely due to me being a visual learner.

    Thanks for the advice I've mainly been going over the topics we did in Year 10 but I'll look at the ones we haven't done yet too.

    I'm on Edexcel, so there's a CGP guide for me. I'm also a visual learner, I'd hate to have a black and white textbook! I love CGP mainly because of that, but also because I like the jokes :holmes: Hope you find a happy textbook soon and I hope we both get through our courses!

    Most definitely - coursework is 60% of your final grade. The listening is only 20%.

    Hey dude I'm back after my French Coursework is done! Could you tell me what my numbers are looking like now, I've just finished my French Writing that I had to do.

    Writing 1 = 28/30
    Writing 2 = 30/30
    Speaking 1 = 27/30
    Speaking 2 = 38/30

    What UMS am I on now and what would I need in the exams for an A* overall? if you don't want to go through the trouble of calculating it all, could you please link me to a UMS converter? Thanks (AQA GCSE French btw)

    Snap for business! My business teacher and thinks we are going to fail business and is stressing out so much but it's fair enough as our last year work in year 10 was wrong and went to waste! (I did so much as well) so we are now expected to do two years in one year! I did the business exam in February and it was on finance it went all right and I find out what i got at the end of March, what's your exam about?
