    Nooo haha I live in Hong Kong :P, and as you may have noticed due to my name i'm an Indian.

    But I often go to London to visit both my elder sister whos doing Econ in LSE and my 2nd older sister whos in UCL, visiting is expensive as heck :P Its an awesome place though

    We're doing International GCSEs though so our syllabus may be sort of different from GCSEs in Sciences, but nothing else.

    Oh my gosh my heart is like pounding out of my chest whenever I go into the exam room. I'm getting better with my nerves now but I remember doing an audition at my school and that my nerves just took over me completely. D:

    Same, luckily so far all my examiners have been so nice and that usually helps my nerves go away! Usually when I start playing I feel a lot better it's worse after the exam when I realise all my mistakes and think of things that I could have done better! Are you doing abrsm?

    I lived in Hong Kong and went to school there when I was younger! Do you speak Cantonese or Mandarin? Or do you go to a school that speaks English?

    I'm a little late to this thread but here goes.

    I'm taking nine GCSE's. English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Religious Studies, Double Award Science, Spanish, History, and Drama

    I enjoy writing, debating, swimming and gaming.

    I'm kind of looking forward to Year 10 because I won't have to deal with all the subjects that I hated in Year 9 e.g. French and Art.
