    Oh god... My phone will be 'ping ping ping' in the customs line... :rofl:

    "why are -ping- you coming -ping- to the uk? -ping- "

    you think 5,000... someone else thinks 4,000...

    THIS IS NOT A EXCUSE TO CRASH MY PHONE GUYS. :P
    :rofl:

    Who thought 4000? I'll win bet, will have the closest number I guess 5500 :yep: Maybe 6000, just to be safe :mmm:

    Go for it

    I'd really like to be a mod on the GCSE sub-forum although I don't know how one goes about becoming a mod....I think it's a rather elite head hunting approach

    usycool1 mod meh plz :mmm:
    To become one on here, we'll either spot users and approach them directly to apply or you can apply yourself in the Support Team applications forum.

    We look at posting history, community records, how useful you are etc. You also need to complete a DBS check if you get it.

    We may well need one or two more GCSE mods/supporters as we're formally called now in the future. So better make sure you post here regularly and are useful.

    I'd like something like this, too, but I think it comes back to getting into the secret circle :mm:

    Nah, you don't need to be in any secret circle

    (Original post by Gilo98)
    Probably....there is something nice about being able to give advice to people etc and them respect what you say because you're a Mod....we shall see

    It depends on the person. Whilst the vast majority are perfectly OK, you will always have someone who absolutely hates you when you're a mod. But you learn to put up with it.

    Hey!
    Hey :wavey:

    There isn't a Year 12 thread for your year yet, as results day hasn't been and the new threads don't get created until they've reached 10,000 posts or it's close to the new academic year starting or a similar sort of time (post results days) :yep:

    You'll find the current thread for your year here: *click me!*

    Oh, and welcome to TSR

    How exciting DBS is the new CRB right?
    I can imagine to be honest...I know some people have had bad experiences with some mods and stay bitter about it

    So five days, like 120 people split into STEM and Arts and Humanities. We had registration in the morning which was really a social time haha in the canteen. Then, we either went for a lecture (one about physics and comets, hydrogen fuel cells and stem cells/molecular biology) or a workshop. The workshops made the summer school in my opinion. There was one on student finance, one on helping personal statements with examples of real personal statements! We even had a "Dippermouth" public speaking workshop where we made our own speeches and built our confidence by thinking on the spot in groups. Then, Thursday we had an amazing quiz in the theatre amazing social time! And also on Thursday, we started our group presentation prep which was about "exploring the modern world." Thereafter, we carried these presentations out on Friday afternoon and then we had a certificate ceremony was awesome. But yeah what an experience!

    Sounds great! Do you have anything else lined up for this summer?

    + Is there a link because I could only find the LSE one so I assumed they were the same thing.

    And honestly all I did was type into Google "Year 11 Summer School" and it came. Make sure you apply for Yr 12's one!
