    Hello! My name is Nin-kaii and i'm going to a sixth form college. I love drawing (on a pc) and messing with computers, as well as learning stuff. Currently teaching myself Japanese during the summer as my third language (as well as giving myself a head start with my a levels )
    I'm taking media studies, fine art and computer science. I love each of them and want to do something VFX animation related as a career.
    Obviously those are my favorite subjects. (in the order: CS, FA then MS) However I really also enjoyed all three sciences at GCSE, and I'm a little sad I can't take them any further.

    Hi! I'm Katie!

    I'm a musical theatre addict, and I sing, and play trumpet and piano - but never perform!

    I'm one of the few people who doesn't seem to know what they're doing for definite next year... I'm either going to college to study BTEC level 3, health and social care extended diploma, or sixth form to study BTEC level 3 health and social care diploma, and hopefully biology.

    I don't think I've got the B I need to study biology though. Sixth form is my preference because it is a part of my school so I know it well etc. College would be a better option for my future, but I don't deal with change well!!

    Good luck with your results everyone!

    For people who have started learning their courses, did you begin by recapping gcse and then reading through an exam board specific course book? Also is it hard to self teach AS?

    Im thinking i might have to self teach in September as some teachers in my school have a reputation for not caring

    I hope to become a graphic designer (suprise suprise :giggle:) or something to do with ICT. :lovedup:

    I wanted to, but then I decided I'd enjoy my summer more if I just continued what I was doing before, which is selling my art online lol
    I refuse to work in a supermarket or any kind of job like that, waste of time

    Heya! My name is Amy and I will be moving to a new school to sit my a-levels.
    I have a deep love for watching Sherlock and Supernatural, reading (especially Harry Potter and The Hunger Games series... which I have done way to many times.) Baking is a great hobby that I use to de-stress and also just make yummy treats that put a smile on peoples faces.
    I hope to be studying Biology, Psychology and Health&Social Care at a-level (the school do not allow students to sit 4 a-levels as we do work experience every month instead).
    My favourite subjects were always French and Mathematics and so they are my back up A-level choices just incase I do not get my Additional Science grade.
    I aspire to be a Primary School Teacher and wish to sit a teacher training course at Newman University.

    HELLO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLES:excited:
    My name is Fatimah My hobbies include reading books, listening to music and talking to friends (I'm such an interesting person haha)
    I'm planning to take Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Economics for A level. Let's just hope I get the grades i need to do them
    I guess my favourite subjects would be Maths (sometimes) and Biology.
    My ideal future occupation is probably going to be Paediatrician or something to do with how the mind works (I want to medicine or something along the lines of medicine in the future).
