    Some of the questions are hilarious. I also love how they try to be really multicultural with the names of people in questions.

    I'm from just outside Lisburn and just go to school in the city.
    They put some amount of rubbish on the language exams! The best one is the Maths question which started: "Mrs.Gump gives her husband a box of chocolates..." :lol:

    Whoo Lisburn! I was born there! Friends' School?

    I found all of the papers this summer easier than normal though?
    Well you should be fine then! I found AQA Biology harder than usual... mostly worried about this exam

    GCSE science grades are expected to drop following a 'toughening up of papers' :afraid:
    Did you find them easy? If so then it doesn't really matter!

    I didn't find them troubling at all really

    I doubt you can't make friends. Maybe it has more to do with your shyness. I wouldn't mind being friends with you
    Well you've spoken to me beforehand to know what I'm like but if you met me first, you probably wouldn't because your first impression of me would be different!

    Enough about depressing stuff anyway.

    I doubt I wouldn't talk to you. A person's personal appearance does not play a major factor in whether or not I talk to them.
    And no more depressing stuff
    Although, if you don't mind me asking are you a girl or a boy (your posts don't really help me decide)?

    I'm a boy, and for the record it says on every post you make what your gender is

    If this applies to AQA I'm screwed. All my GCSE's bar 2 were taken with AQA :cry:

    I'm not sure, there are a few topics though.
    Seems your school needs to be registered to offer it.

    Ahh sorry, only one I could think of there haha. I go to the Abbey CBS.
    No problem, unlike a lot of Wallace students I don't have an inbuilt hatred of Friends. I haven't actually met anyone who goes to the Abbey CBS before so I don't know much about it.

    Chemistry, Human Biology, Mathematics, Fourth Still Undecided :/

    I'm really racking my brains out over this. I might take Law to AS-Level this year, and then next year whilst I'm doing A2 take another subject to AS. The College I'm going to lets you do that.

    I remember what you are taking, however

    We have 3 subjects in common :five:
    If you like the sound of Law, go for it
    What subject would you be looking to do to AS in the second year though?

    Smart ass- What subjects am I taking, without checking my previous posts?
