    Trust me it's hard finding other Northern Irish students!
    I'm waiting on Add.Maths, French, Spanish, Geography, Irish, English.Language, DA Science with CCEA and then RE and English.Lit with AQA. Nervous for English Language because I needed an A* in the exam for an A* overall which could be borderline and then English.Lit I'd like a good result in because I worked really hard for it. :lol: I'm more confident about my other results though. How about you?
    I know isnt it!!! Then I always get confused because over in england our year 12 is their year 13 ( is that right? )
    Looks like we have a good few subjects in common Oh english never was my strong suit, but i think its probably the one im most confident in at the moment and im hoping i get a solid A, as for my other subjects im reasonably worried but they all went fairly meh, i was confident about drama for about 5 mins after the exam and then people were all like " you only wrote 10 pages?" haha. Yeah all my exams went ok EXCEPT my physics exam (dun dun dun!!!) it was terrifying, id barely revised and then coming home from my geog exam i fell asleep, woke up in a panic and tried to revise. Then during the exam i froze on questions, i wrote to the end but ppl around me had finished after the first 20 mins, did that happen to you in physics? Just me lol! :rolleyes:

    Sometimes you find people typing 'CCEA' in the search bar. Yep, we're in Year 11 in England haha!
    Oh what do we have similar?
    I enjoy English, but I don't have a good history of English exams haha, got really in to the discursive essay but I'm not so sure about the second part? Aw I liked Drama haha, sucked at it though so never took it on! How did you find Geography?
    Oh no! The Physics was a short paper, I finished after about 45 minutes but never worry haha, as long as you answered everything! Were you doing it as part of Double Award Science?

    Nope! Nobody would do it then. :lol:
    You can do them in Irish if you want, and I think you get 5% credit or some form of leniency.

    Got to love add maths people! The exams are all a bit of a blur to me now! I'm not really a confident person, so I'm scared!! Hoping for the best but I will also prepare for the worst haha Yes I'm staying on in my school for sixth form and I am going to do biology, chemistry, maths and geography! What are your plans for after the GCSEs?

    Proper examinations. Plus they sometimes ask funny questions! And Northern Ireland gets top A-Level results in the UK so that must mean something!

    We both did eng (of course lol), add maths, Spanish, geography, DA science, and R.E . Yeah I answered everything in physics but I just laughed threw the 6 mark essay question asking how the universe started ( or something like that) I remembered the right theory but after that my memory was a bit fuzzy so I just started guessing at what I thought sounded right, it could be right or wrong I never did check, and I don't want to, but I just looked over at people doing it as we'll and they weren't writing at all!!!! I was especially worried looking at my cousin once again sleeping in another exam, which very guiltily made me feel better. Geography was sort of a blur I tend to have pretty selective memory so I believe I blocked most of it out luckily, but I just about got it finished the last question severly suffered though, my result for that though should be interesting though as I believe I either did terribly well or terribly.......terrible. what about you? Was it plain sailing? or how about add maths and Spanish ?

    I know, I would rather stay in school/uni for several more years, I would be way too scared! Yes we definitely are, can't complain with 3 out of 4 a levels the same! Haha, well I suppose it's hard to say, whatever it is it will be science based! Maybe medicine (although I'm very aware of how competitive it is!) I'm very interested in something to do with chemistry too, difficult choice! what about you? Any career ideas?

    Omg it's like we have the same mind!!! :O lol! Some days I think I want to do medicine then others I just feel I'm way too lazy, but I do love science so ill end up somewhere but I've applied to volunteer in the health and social care trust so I can observe and get some experience and see what type of jobs I might like and if medicine would be for me at all, theatre studies is supposed to be a break from too much of the serious subjects!

    Yes same I have applied for voluntary work there and work shadowing at some stage! Yeah geography is supposed to be kind of a break for me too! I do different bits of voluntary and extra curricular at the moment but it all seems so competitive no matter what course you want to end up doing!
