    Been looking for this thread forever!

    Hi my name is Bashiru Abubakar, aka Bash. I'm interested in technology, and my main hobbies include, graphic and web design. I achieved 9 a stars and an A at GCSE, the subjects which I have chosen are Economics, Maths, Physics and Chemistry. I hope to work in finance in the future, perhaps banking. And yes of course it will be a delight to go to Oxford and study this course!

    Edit

    P.S. I also received my target grades a few days ago, which are 2 A stars and 2 A's 😊

    i'm also doing maths and fm on ocr mei, and we're doing C1, C2, FP1, D1, S1 and S2 this year, then FP2, C3, C4, M1, M2 and M3 next year. i have no idea what mechanics will be like (i'm guessing it'll start off with kinematics, which i don't mind) so doing three modules of it is daunting hehe

    I'm Ishan, 16, from Manchester, and am just another TSRian trying to get through A levels this year.

    - What are your hobbies and interests?

    Hobbies - I play badminton and cricket, play the piano and all the usual other hobbies a 16 year old has.
    Interests - Science

    - What subjects are you planning to take?
    Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Biology (AS)

    - Your favourite subject(s)?

    Chemistry, then Maths, then Physics and Biology

    - Your ideal future occupation?

    I guess an ideal occupation would involve something to do with Chemistry/Engineering and would be very well paid as well as enjoyable.

    I personally have aspirations of Oxbridge (like thousands of others on here unfortunately ), but I haven't decided which university course I will apply for, or what career path to follow. I'm deciding between Chemistry, Engineering, maybe Chemical Engineering or Physics as a university course. I do want to hear from people who are in a similar position to me, or with similar interests, and are deciding, or have decided, what they want to do with their lives.

    Hey I'm Sophie!

    I'm taking Psychology, Biology, English Language and French (as well as the EPQ) - all to the full A-Level, because AS is no longer possible!
    My main hobby is playing the piano but I also help out at a horse riding centre for the disabled and love anything to do with music and languages. I'm not sure what career I want to go into, but perhaps Speech Therapy. I would like to use languages and psychology in the future ideally, but I'm unsure.
    I really want to go to either Edinburgh or Warwick university, but I have some other university ideas too. ((I'm not sure if I'm making a mistake taking 4 A-Levels + the EPQ, especially since unis only ask for 3. I don't know if I'm making it hard for myself and if I should drop Biology (probably my least favourite of the 4 - I think French is my favourite one), but I really really like all of my A-Levels. I just think I might regret it when it comes to revision time...))

    Thank God my art teacher is giving us a little extra to do our work, I'm getting so stressed with the work. They gave us tons of extra work every lesson and I nearly had a breakdown over it.

    If you're not currently struggling with your workload, go for it.

    Doing the boring Cold War and the far more interesting Tudors. Richard III deserved the Kingdom of England tbh.

    Aw I'm doing the opposite course and therefore doing Tsarist and Communist Russia as well as British politics. And Richard III definitely deserved more attention.

    I was about to do 4 + EPQ, but I thought the workload was too much, so I stuck to 4. I don't really think it's worth going through that much stress for 4 subjects and EPQ.
