    Bloody hell

    It's like seeing my kids grow up :emo: (Not that I have kids yet, of course :ninja:)
    :lol:
    That's pretty true. We've been here since Year 9. Hmmm. :sly:

    Usyyy... I kind of feel like I'm behind already even though we haven't done that much. Especially in Biology. There is so much in the textbook. :/

    I guess we are the same but I've had to work in most of mine so far:lol:

    Apparently because AQA science was easy compared to OCR which had harder stuff but idk :dontknow:
    7????

    French is good, I haven't had my other French teacher yet but I already got some homework from her. Everyone in my class is basically fluent or French and I feel so inferior. The worst part is I can read, write and understand what she says well but my accent isn't the best so I hate speaking
    Same. I'm going to try and be more productive in my frees from next week. I have one tomorrow and I'm planning to make more flashcards. I need to finish my homework from today... and do some 'extra reading'.
    Genau! :ahee:

    Everything just seems to be more in depth, which is exciting!

    Keep speaking!! A lot of my friends who take French have been saying that but the only way you can better is to speak.

    I'm taking psychology, sociology and criminology.

    At GCSE my favourite subject was history.

    Wow, that's quite amazing. A lot has happened during that time eh... :awesome: I assure you, there are no mini Usy's yet. All the (old) female Usy's are now ex's so we'll have to wait some time. :lol:

    Don't worry, that's normal for A-Levels. Just keep trying to keep up and you will be fine. At GCSE, you'll have been used to going into exams feeling as though you've revised everything and have a good shot (how were your GCSEs, btw?). Then at A-Levels, you'll go in feeling slightly less confident but everyone will be like that. (Then at Med School, you go in thinking: "What the hell, I haven't revised like 25% of the stuff!" but that too is expected ). What have you covered in Biology?

    Got my timetable today and I think I have the most frees here. 20 free periods not including 2 compulsory independent study periods a week. I do English lit, History and Sociology, so I'm surprised I have so much frees, it might be because I go to a sixth form college.
