    The street markets and food places look amazing! It'd be so nice to grab a snack and then go across the harbour on the star ferry to do some shopping

    Hello! I'm Hans, I'm 17 years old, and I live in Manchester. I'll be starting sixth form in September, and will be doing A-levels in English Literature, Mathematics, Sociology and Drama OR Psychology. My hobbies include travel, voice-acting, theatrical make-up, video editing, gaming, history, politics, and learning languages (I'm currently learning German and French on duolingo^^). In the future, I'd like to become a voice-actor, and so I'm hoping to do an Acting degree. I'm stressed about starting sixth form, seeing that many of my older friends have failed miserably.. But, well, we've got to work hard, because partying hard and fooling around won't give us bright futures ;-)

    Hope we'll all become AS-friends together ^^

    Hello!
    I'm Jake and I'm from Worcester!
    I'm starting Sixth Form in September and I'm hoping to be doing: Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Computer Science.

    I'm a little nervous about my results because I need to pretty much get a B+ in everything, no exceptions.

    Predicted:
    English Lit: A*
    English Lang: A
    Mathematics: B
    Computing: A*
    Science: A
    Geography: B/A
    Business Studies: B
    French: B (Dreading this one, really bad exam :P)

    I'm mainly into Computing and enjoy coding and developing in my spare time, I also have a unique hobby of solving Rubiks Cubes (odd, i know)

    I'm inbetween two career options right now, I love Computer Science and I'm very passionate about it, so I want to go into Cyber Security.

    I'm also debating a medical profession, I'm working in a Pharmacy right now and it's really highlighted how much I love Medical Science and how a career in Medicine might be for me.

    Looking forward to being more active on TSR and planning to join the Grow Your Grades threads in order to provide motivation to get through my hard A-Level options :P!

    Hi I'm Maya, you can probably tell by my awful username😡 I turned 16 in June and i live in the Midlands.

    - What are your hobbies and interests?
    I'm a pretty dull person imo, but I have played keyboard for quite a few years and recently have been self teaching some piano-y stuff. I used to be really big on reading but that's kinda slowed down in the past few months as I've found the teen fiction type of books that I used to love become slightly boring to me, so I'm trying to find a new genre that excites me like any run of the mill teenager I spend most of my time watching Netflix and overeating I've got a part time job which has been getting me out the house a bit this summer- some how I've landed one selling pretty expensive watches on a pretty good wage, so I'm very happy about that!

    - What subjects are you planning to take?
    Next year I'm taking biology, chemistry and maths and I may also take physics depending on my grade.

    - Your favourite subject(s)?
    Scienceeeee!! I'm also pretty big on writing, used to be a pretty avid creating writer but haven't done much recently. I pretty much love any subject that is challenging but also makes me think a lot. Not an artsy or practical person in the slightest though- was forced to take GCSE PE along with the entire year group and my practical grade was awful

    - Your ideal future occupation? :
    Would love to be a doctor But I've always got the back up plan of working in some sort of pathology lab as I did some work experience there last year and found it fascinating

    Introduce yourself: I'm Kinneret and I live in London.

    What are your hobbies and interests ?: Singing (+music in general), drama, MATHS, sudokus ('cause I'm weird like that), reading, and writing absolute rubbish. And obviously binge-watching various shows (often in other languages which is hilarious because I suck the most at languages)

    What subjects are you planning on taking ?: Hopefully, should I get the grades, Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computer Science.

    Your favourite subject(s) ?: Maths, Physics and Drama

    Your ideal future occupation: At the moment I either want to be a physicist or a teacher, but everything could change.

    We did AQA and I think the sports I took forward were Fitness, Netball, Basketball and coaching in basketball. That springs to mind anyway, in all honesty my marks were pretty much all 6/7 out of 10 so i wasn't too bothered about what was put down!
