    Same but I'm not taking it for A level, I'd need it if I wanted to do forensics even in a basic uni
    Why aren't you taking it, then? I mean, if you wanted, you can always swap on results day.

    What you think you've got:
    a mix of As and A*s, maybe a B

    Predicted grades:
    7A* 5A
    What you've actually got:
    ...

    How are you feeling about results day?
    Not too good, don't really know what to predict

    How are you going to open your results?
    at school, i have to enroll for sixth form at the same time don't want to open them around a lot of people though

    What A levels are you doing? (if not what is your alternative)
    biology, chemistry, maths and RS (AS only)

    Are you going to record your GCSE results on YouTube? (If so I can't wait to see it!)
    Nope..

    There is ******** that I'm making up and then there's cliches. I'm imaganative.

    Also for forensics I'll need a good grade in Chemistry and I suck at chemistry
    But if you're passionate about it, then you'll be motivated to work hard and thus get the grades. Not to sound derogatory, but isn't forensic science offered at universities that give out low offers anyway? I mean, you sound erudite to me, so I think it's doable!

    No No my full GCSEs.
    I didn't do IGCSEs.
    I only use it to give assured hope to others, not as a bragging right.
    Oh right. I didn't think you were bragging btw

    Because I know I will struggle with it, even though I like science and am in set 1, I don't see myself taking it at A level. In my school to take biology you need A in Biology and 2 B's in the other sciences and I'll be lucky to even get a C in Chemistry.

    Ah, I see. But if you do satisfy the requirements will you take it?

    Twins! I think I'm wanting to do a medicine or biomedical science degree, what about you?
    Are you doing RS too, if so do you know what exam board and which religions you are doing next year?

    I wanted to do medicine, but completely switched to law and swapped maths for history!

    OCR. My school calls it Philosophy & Ethics, but on paper it is RS. For the third component, I think we study Christianity. You?

    Well, it's better to be cautiously optimistic than completely pessimistic. 😉

    Ah sounds good! Law sounds interesting but I never took history further than year 9 and didn't enjoy it so much. Yes I'm doing OCR too- Christianity and Judaism. I've looked for find the specification but haven't found it, but someone on here told me that it is a new specification for us anyway.

    Yeah the new specification only has like one component where you study a religion in depth. I'm most looking forward to the Philosophy of Religion aspect. Gotta love some Analogy of the Cave. 😉

    I hated it at GCSE. It wasn't detailed enough. Plus I'm in atheist LOL. I'm expecting an A* in it. It was too easy, and that's without any revision, bar key words - not that I'm bragging.

    Hahah I guess it would be different for an atheist too! I get what you mean about the lack of detail but I liked the topics. Yeah I'm expecting A* too hopefully, but I did think that some of the 12 markers were quite odd without much discussion areas.
