    Ah that's a shame. Were the teachers any good though?

    Haha, Horsham, is quite far from me but it was between that and Reigate (heard of that?) and there is a direct train to Horsham! I live is a village it's REALLY quiet. I guess not the same at all for you?

    Ah okay, last time we just went to the subjects teacher around the school and said I want to take this course. This time I was give 3 times. 1 - registration 2 - enrolment interview 3 - Study skills assessment?. So I look forward to find out what this all is!

    Most of my teachers were ok, but my maths teachers were ridiculous.
    I didnt have a teacher for french - i should have known this would happen!
    I spent half the year in tuition for french- didnt go well and spent the other half self studying.
    I ended up with a grade E.

    I just googled reigate. Sorry, i dont know much outside of london.
    You live in a village??! Wow!
    I live in north london, very close to the tottenham hotspur stadium - so you can imagine what life is like here.
    My road is really quiet, but the high road is often so busy.

    My college enrolment day is a bit different to yours.
    First thing they would do is look at your gcses and discuss with you your chosen subjects.
    You then enrol onto your subjects.
    Afterwards - you pay your fee for the ID card, you take your photo and you then get the card.
    Thats it really.

    Scratch what I said I went on the ride I couldn't go on :awesome: ... Currently feeling fearless :smug:

    I love all rides and rollercoasters except the ride that shoots you up, drops you and then sends you up again :lol: but I just did it :-)
    Haha wow well done you! I'm glad you're enjoying yourself

    Nearly gcse results day, good luck to all of you and I hope you do well

    I remember I felt pretty nervous last year this time, but just remember one thing, unis care more about A levels so don't fret They also like to see significant improvements!
    My friend got a B in biology and came out with an A* at a level

    My GCSE's are Maths, Additional Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Humanities, History, Spanish, English lang and lit, Business and IT

    I want to go to imperial college to study maths or physics

    Other A levels are further maths, Maths and Physics

    I prefer solving mathematical problems, I hate doing practicals but I would like to have 2 science and 2 maths a levels

    Oh god that's bad. We had a lot of trouble in Psychology and Maths but the other were ok. Thankfully! Are you doing the same subjects?

    Hahah, it's fine! I probably wouldnt know ifi was in the same situation. Yeah I live next to Gatwick Airport
    Oh I bet it much be busy. I guess that can be nice, but not sure about for studying!

    That was exactly like mine last year so I'm not sure why it's different now.
    We had our pictures taken on the open day in July. You have to pay for your ID card?

    The only different subject im doing is further maths - no more philosophy for me!

    Well, its definitely not the best place to live for a student going uni.
    Oh cool!
    If i lived next to an airport, i would spend often spend my time just looking at the aeroplanes through my bedroom window - i really dont know why!

    Why did you have your pictures taken so early??

    No this wasn't the further maths gcse we could get an additional grade in maths because we took the Edexcel paired pilot exam and linear which allowed us to obtain two gcse's in Maths

    Like me then changing 1 subject! No computing but now Business what are your other subjects? French...

    oh yeah, I guess so! I can hear a plan right now, we get quite a few plane spotters around though security generally tells them not to be there. Personally I don't think they are that exciting probably becuase I'm used to them, i don't even realise they're there!

    I'm not even sure, it's a bit weird really you'd think they'd wait till after results so they are sure.
    So you have to get the ID cards then?
    My sixthform school fund with £30 now we have to pay £150!

    That's alright then and I'll probably get an A anyway but I won't be happy with a B as I need 9 A*/A s for medicine
    Surely you only need 5A*s+.

    My other subjects are maths, further maths and physics.
    A level business studies?? Top unis look down on applicants who take that.
    Its not a respected qualification, economics is much more preferred.

    Im not used to it, so im normally excited - especially if i see an A380.

    Yep, they print your name and photo on to the card.
    £150??!! Why so much?!! :eek:

    It's only for AS hence why it doesn't matter. I took Econimcs for GCSE and it was too boring. I won't get into a top uni anyway so doesn't really matter, I've emailed unis I want to go to and they a said its fine even for A2! So I'm doing Maths, Business, Politics & psychology.

    Ours in the same, maybe the cost of ID cards goes into the college fund!
    Plus all the school trip are riduculous too
