    Well done to you too, thank you to you and Zoe for everything you put into the thread during exams it really helped! I couldn't talk towards the end of exams as I became really ill with tonsillitis (probably not helped by stress) but it really kept me on track
    Thank you and I'm glad this thread helped you. It wasn't necessarily about the grades for me, but more the fact that I could help others out I hope your health has cleared up since exams

    Well done everyone, you have all achieved fantastic grades!! I am now nervous that I won't be able to perform as well when I go into year eleven next year! Do you guys have any advice for me? X
    Thank you Hannah and honestly don't worry. It sounds like you hav the drive and motivation to do well andn that is all that counts. The best advice I can give you is to do a bit of revision everyday, just so you start to rebuild that habit, and gradually increase the amount as exams approach (including for mocks and practice tests) as that will get you into a routine and ready for the real thing.

    Thank you - yeah I'm buzzing with them all except the D, I'm especially happy about the 2 Bs because they're for both Englishes and those are what I struggled with most.
    Yep, got A*s in the 3 subjects I'm doing so I'm sorted!

    how do you do it??
    I guess here I should say: numerous past papers balanced with thorough note-taking, which is probably true for 9 of my grades.But for my 10th, I don't know how I clinched the result, I had to get 78+/80 to get the grade because of bad coursework!

    You must be a really effective studier and it certainly paid off. What is next for you then, and how do you plan to celebrate?

    I surpassed the entry requirements to get into the Sixth Form College I wanted . I'll take Maths, Further, Design Technology and Physics in the hope of going into Engineering.Celebrate, probably just a takeaway for now - I haven't really decided! Made a decision on whether you'll do A-Levels or an Apprenticeship yet?

    Ooh Engineering - music to my ears! I've just had a takeaway, so enjoy yours if you have one

    I think I'm going for the Apprenticeship now

    Thank you - I hope I've made the right choice. I'm glad that others have found this useful, and who knows, I might do one for A-levels some day (whilst in the Apprenticeship) and hopefully my blog/website I started will get off the ground and prove just as useful as this has

    RESULTS, RESULTS, RESULTS
    So here's what you've all be waiting for...a breakdown of all my results.

    Maths: A*
    English Language: A*
    English Literature: A*
    Physics: A* (Phew!!)
    Biology: A* (miracle)
    Chemistry: A*
    History: A*
    German: A* (How?)
    Geography: A (disappointed, but possibly remarking it)
    ICT: D2 = A (not bad considering it was done on half the time...actually, a quarter of the time)

    Overall, I'm pretty happy as I think I was the highest in the school, although I'm not sure as there were some pretty high performers. Can't help admitting I'm a little gutted with Geography, but considering I had been getting Bs prior to the mocks when I started this thread, I've improved to an A (and I'm 2 marks off A*) so it's relatively pleasing. I hope everyone got the grades they wanted and deserved and I'd like to ssay that making this thread has been an absolute pleasure.

    Just because I know that these were lost in a really early post, if anyone wants to access the flashcards I made for my subjects (for example, any new Year 11 or 10s wanting to get a head start) feel free to use them here: https://www.brainscape.com/packs/687...ferrer=1904487 and then go to my profile to find other subjects. I don't see why they should go to waste

    These results lead me on to the next stage, which I have decided will be an Apprenticeship in Engineering (although I am not ruling A-levels out) and if anyone has any advice then feel free to share it. If there is enough to document, then I will make another thread to track my progress through the apprenticeship. But until then, thank you all for being so supportive and sharing in this journey, hopefully it has proved helpful and I can definitely say I've enjoyed being a part of it.

    Good luck to everyone in their future studies or chosen careers and I'm always keen to hear how you are all getting on so do drop me a PM from time to time

    Well done on the great results, you've worked really hard. I'd definitely get Geography remarked as the subjectiveness can sometimes salvage you some marks. I'm kinda interested in why you have taken the apprenticeship route instead of A levels for the time being so I'd love to hear more! Anyway I wish you the best for the next level of your education and maybe we can help each other reach our goals!

    Thank you! Yes, I'm letting the teachers handle all that, as i have no idea where to start.

    I think my main reasons for the apprenticeship is that I'll be earning, so I can save it up whilst I have little to pay out for and I learn an actual trade in the real world, rather than being cocooned in a bubble of educated, with no knowledge of how things like pensions, taxes and sustaining yourself with more responsibilities works. I also think that independence is a key factor. I think I'm going to look at getting A levels in Maths and Further Maths during the Apprenticeship just to keep my brain ticking over, and give me a good chance of getting to uni which is where I ultimately want to end up What do you think?

    I think the fact you can earn money while working can actually work well in the long term since if you want to end up in University, clearing up the debts would be much easier. However, if you are considering doing an apprenticeship while doing 2 A levels, then the workload would be much higher since working would mean you'd have less time to dedicate to these subjects? It would need a lot of organising and time management! But I'm sure you'll find a way of doing so. How did or plan to celebrate?
