    Hey! I'm Beccaboodle and I'm obviously a Year 10.

    I'm taking Maths (don't know exam board), English (AQA), Triple Science (OCR), Religious Studies (AQA), German (AQA), History (EDEXCEL) and Computing (AQA).

    I started science in Year 9, and found it pretty easy, so I felt confident about GCSEs. Then Year 10 started...

    My favourite subject is Chemistry, closely followed by Computing. English is hardest by far and I'm struggling to enjoy it like I did when I was younger.

    I don't really like the new GCSEs very much. The new 9 looks so out of reach, yet Chemistry target grade is 8/9, so who knows what may happen.

    Good luck to everyone else starting Year 10!
    What's the new history spec like?

    Hi, I'm Lauren. I live in Singapore, and go to an Australian school (even though I'm American Chinese) so I'm still in Grade 9. I love reading, riding, and playing the cello. I also play the piano, but I hate it. I have a really strict family which doesn't let me do my own thing, but that's okay I guess.

    I'm taking:

    Maths (extended and additional)
    English (world lit. and first language)
    Science (extended)
    Indonesian
    History (blech, parents chose my electives )
    Music (double blech)
    Economics

    Quite hard, but alright I guess. There is so much to memorize and I've only had 2 weeks.

    how are you guys finding triple science so far
    im kind of struggling with it ,we are doing aqa and our first topic is about energy and all that
    am i the only one that is lowkey dying
    I'm finding triple science quite hard. Especially with the new GCSE where we have to learn all the core practicals since we have no coursework. Despite being one of the high achievers in my class, I am finding all the content quite hard to remember.

    Atm it's not too bad. But my textbook is one of 4 (change in warfare 1250-present). There is so much info but luckily I spent most of year 9 studying warfare so most of it is quite familiar.

    We're doing physics now, first topic is density for us. In chemistry we're doing atomic structure and equations and in biology we're doing cells.

    I know! I can't memorise practicals for each science! Especially since my teachers are doing them all now in order to get them out the way! Not helpful!
    What exam board are you with?

    I'm pretty sure I'm with Edexcel. We're doing a lot of our practicals now as well and I missed one of them and it was in a recent assessment and it's where I lost most of my marks.

    Yeah we're doing cells in biology which is impossible (probably because of mr fuller), energy transfers and atomic structure
