    omg same sameee!
    Not sure what my chemistry and English boards are yet. But yesterday I had my first English lesson and our text is Jane Eyre.
    Everyone in my new school seems very well read and I'm a bit intimidated by it all
    :eek::ahee: Ah...I'm not doing the same books as you though. Don't let that put you off! But yeah I'm kinda scared I'll be in a similar situation where everyone will be spouting original ideas with all these big words and I'll be sitting there like: 'uh...the colour blue of her eyes suggests sadness?'

    Waves and Electricity and that? It looks so boring

    We have a textbook and revision guide given so I'm going to learn it all in a day properly and get retaught it so I have firm knowledge. Maybe chem too...

    I'm thinking of just using one folder for everything with subject-specific ones....but still that's a lot of stuff...

    I do have lockers....it's just I have to lug around everything to school and back because I use it///


    Most of it...at least

    With 2 teachers for each subject....it feels like you're actually doing 8...just a heads up.

    Don't you need paper and stuff too?
    Or am I just taking too many things?
    Well, I'm not allowed, my chem and Bio teachers get pissed if I bring a shared folder, or a ring binder. I have to have one lever arch each But if you can you should!
    We don't have lockers

    Good luck with English Lit! No way I could ever sit in another English lesson ever again. To Kill A Mockingbird and The Crucible, along with Twelfth Night, Pride & Prejudice and conflict poetry made GCSE English Lit absolute hell for me.

    Hmmm...I'm stuck between Science University lecturer, Medicine, or something else to do with the great awesomeness that is Science. What about you?

    If I find Maths too difficult (which hopefully I wont) then I'm going to switch to Biology. Pretty sure we're allowed two weeks too.
