    OHH Hello to this thread nice to meet yo and just wondering what book are you doing for English language and are you doing triple science because i am and which one you doing like history or geography im doing Geography and i am enjoying it so badly xD
    Hi... I'm working on Journey by Shirley Lim for English. Yes I'm doing triple science, and I personally am not enjoying history right now... but it might be because my teacher sucks...

    I'm sorry, this might be a weird question, but are you a boy or a girl? Tell me about yourself

    Hello my name is Abbie and I take 10 GCSEs
    GCSE Maths
    GCSE English literature and language
    GCSE physics biology and chemistry
    GCSE statistics
    GCSE Business studies
    and GCSE History
    All my GCSEs apart from business and statistics are the new 9-1 GCSEs and I have given myself the target of getting A*'s , A and Bs (or 9,8,7,6's)
    I would say I don't regret any of my subject choices and I have found English a lot better this year even. At the moment we are reading an inspector calls which I find interesting.

    In maths, I have been doing the 3-year course and I find it enjoyable. At the end of last year I was on about a 6 but i hope to get to an 8 by the end of the year.

    Yeah I am doing triple I am enjoying it at the moment but my only problem is my physics teacher isn't that good but luckily it is my strong suite. For science I got the same textbooks as the school which our oxford university press but I also got some cgp ones. I don't get complete revision as I find the questions aren't as good so i get the revision guide and workbook which for each science is £10. How many lessons do you get of each? We have 4 chemistry, 4 biology and 5 physics as physics takes up an option space.

    For business I am doing AQA and I'm doing coursework at either end of the year or start of next year. So far we have done a few presentations and also we've done quite a lot of definitions and writing and one practice question which I got 4/6 on which was a C and I am enjoying it. I get cgp revision guides for this as well and I think they do a special one for btec but they also have a general one for £5.

    Next term I'm doing poetry but I do Christmas carol next year around christmas. Do you know what Shakespeare book you are doing? We do Romeo and Juliet. For revision, I would recommend the york notes inspector calls revision guide and workbook and they are about £5 each.

    Hello Guys so i was just wondering where is everyone up to because we have had 2 weeks of school and I know it was fast however some people have some consequences because some of their teachers aren't here im very sorry to heat that because you will be therefore a day behind or 2 lessons behind or something so the best thing to do is just buy a revision book and go through the revision book and see what you need to learn or go to the board website to see what the first or the next thing on the specification is and just go on any websites to see.

    Today i found some useful websites and you tubers that do help learning students so i am going to link it down so please Take a minute or two to check the links below and i hope you find it useful :

    My school has the textbooks on loan to students, so i don't have to worry about that... in Indonesian, I'm just learning conjunctions and all that. And English, we're studying Journey (the short story) and how to write letters.
