    Eight weeks today and I have my first exam :puke:

    I feel like I'm constantly doing homework so I haven't been doing a huge amount of revision at the moment.

    Am I terrified? Yes. Should I be? Possibly. We will see.
    Oooh, good luck! You lot must have loads of exams too because of the new way the GCSEs are done now. My brother has 24 or something. Still though, in some ways it'll make it easier for when you start A-Levels (I forgot loads of stuff we did in earlier exams).

    Ah I personally never liked homework (actually, who does?), I never really found it beneficial for most subjects but then you don't want to let your teachers down either so it's always a bit of a dilemma.

    I'm sure you'll be fine! GCSEs can seem very daunting but it's always satisfying when you finish them at last and have the whole summer to just do whatever the hell you want.

    Nerves kicked in ages ago, primarily september.
    Ah year 11 is like that. Time seems to pass so quickly too though in years 11 (and 12/13 if you want to continue) - it just seems like yesterday when I was doing my GCSE exams.

    Anyone who does French here, can u please tell me any tenses that will get me a better grade. Apart from the basic ones, I used pluperfect and present participle. This is my last chance so I really want to get a good grade, thanks!

    It feels like yesterday the teachers were saying "20 weeks to go" and now suddenly it's less than 10

    Yes I have done nothing but work since I got home tonight and I'm staying an hour after school tomorrow because I still can't get everything done.

    Definitely :cool:
    I was feeling all contemplative yesterday, so I just sat in maths next to my friend pondering "Where did the year go?" It doesn't seem like two minutes since we were discussing the December mocks... Argh! xD

    Guyys, how big do you think your sixth form classes will be? Mine are going be tiny, there's only going to be three people in my physics class (including me), that's probably will be the same with my spanish and chemistry class. Maths will be really massive though
    A Classical Greek school at my local toff posh private school, has two children in it.

    I have 22 without counting the ones I've already done Yeah hopefully I'll come out the other end as a much more productive person Yes homework is a constant struggle, especially when I get too much and then can't be bothered to revise

    Let's hope so!

    Nice choices. I see a maths-y (wow that terminology tho...) theme.

    Before Christmas! :eek: Thank god that wasn't the case for me - only had a vague notion about my choices then.
    Is theatre studies like drama? (I have no clue) high five for english lit though!

    Ahaha, I know the feeling - almost felt like I wasn't doing GCSEs anymore at one point cuz everything was focussed on A-level options. And then it was like... Hang on.... We haven't even done our gcses yet.

    Sixth form is going to be amazing!
