    My names Will I'm 16 I suffer from ADD and Depression. So I really struggle in School environments and I work/ learn best on my own. Currently I am self-teaching A-level Maths and Chemistry, alongside Level 3 Mathematical Studies. I will probably take another AS next year.

    The only problem I have is, the practical assessments in Chemistry, I am not sure how I would be able to do them. Wouldn't I need to be taught how to do the practical before the assessment and where would I be able to have lessons? Presumably at some examination centre?

    I am already entered for my Exams, just not the practical for AS Chemistry.

    I am hoping to achieve C or B in Chemistry, C in Maths and A/B in Mathematical studies. Should be possible If i have a solid year of revision.

    I would like to do Chemistry at university. Preferably an rs c accredited uni but I would be happy to get into any Chemistry course given my circumstances!

    Also, do you have any other course reccomendations? I'll need to make up the equivalent of 3 A-levels and around 240 ucas points
    Good luck. I too suffer from depression, alongside anxiety. However I'm in mainstream school still, just not coping well!! Best of luck to you

    I am Alexander and I live in Hampshire and I have mild Dyslexia which means that I struggle with writing lengthy things. My GCSE results were okay and I sometimes fear that they'll hinder me when applying to university.. (1A, 3Bs, 4Cs, 1D, 1Pass(IT))

    What are your hobbies and interests?
    I am avidly interested in Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. I also play the Keyboard/Piano at grade 3, I started not too long ago so I'm not very good at the moment. I love to watch F1 and I often read Biographies of people like Elon musk and Steve Jobs.

    What subjects are you planning to take?
    I have just started taking Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science alongside an engineering certificate.

    Your favourite subject(s)?
    Physics and Computer Science

    Your ideal future occupation?
    Anything that involves Engineering or technology really, would anyone be able to recommend a good engineering uni that'll take someone with ABB A-Level grades?

    I started Sixth Form in September.

    GCSE Results (1A*, 4As, 6Bs, 1C)
    English Literature - B
    English Language - B
    Maths - B
    Further Maths - B
    Biology - A
    Chemistry - A
    Physics - B
    Religious Ed. - A*
    Drama - A
    Geography - B
    German - C
    PE - A

    Hobbies and interests
    I don't really have any specific interests if I'm honest. I do a lot with St. John Ambulance (Sargent of my Unit, achieved Levels 1 and 2 in Leadership skills, Level 1 in Peer Education, Margaret Sweet Shield Award, Bronze of my Grand Prior Award, Most Progressive Cadet of 2015), but other than that, I'm either revising, watching television (mainly EastEnders, Casualty, Holby City and Midsomer Murders) or exercising.

    Subjects I'm taking
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Maths (AT AS ONLY)
    Psychology

    My favourite subject(s)
    Biology and Chemistry without hesitation.

    My future ideal occupation
    Ideally, I want to be either a doctor or a paramedic. My heart leans much more towards becoming a paramedic as I prefer the front line role and working alongside the police and fire brigade. If all else fails though then I'll fall back into the teaching net and become a secondary school science (specialising in Biology and Chemistry) teacher.

    I took initiative a few weeks before term started, to read my cousin's AS Biology textbook. She goes to same sixth form as me, but she's in year 13 now. I made notes from the textbook and did the questions in them as well. Biology uses a lot of jargon to replace 'regular' words. It's almost like reading a new language. lol
    Wow, lucky! Must've taken up a lot of your time during the summer though.Yeah, Biology might as well become a language as well as a science lmao

    I am. I got a B grade in GCSE Maths and Further Maths, and it's going really well for me. I'm not finding anything we're doing at the moment particularly challenging. Did you take Maths at A-level?

    Hey! I'm Jason and I'm 16. At GCSEs I got 9 A*s and 5 As


    - What are your hobbies and interests?
    I spend half the day everyday listening to music, with my favourite artists being Shakka, Kano and Santan Dave (who btw has a new EP out that I would highly recommend). Other than that, I don't really do much else apart from revision and procrastinating. I do want to pick up cooking and swimming though.


    - What subjects are you planning to take?
    I'm taking Maths, Further Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Spanish


    - Your favourite subject(s)?
    Probably Maths, but I'm also enjoying Biology so far (definitely cause we haven't done plants yet)


    - Your ideal future occupation?
    My mind is pretty much set on medicine, specifically as a surgeon but I'm not yet sure what I want to specialise in

    Maths is going well so far. Topics we've learnt are Algebra, Quadratic Functions, Coordinate geometry (C1) and Correlation (S1). The exam questions did throw me off a bit, but that won't stop me from being optimistic

    My parents'd be happy with me doing what I enjoy as long as it's well within the Asian criteria lmao but luckily I enjoy those sort of subjects
    Sorry I didn't receive your notification lol. Im also Pakistani
    Ahaha my parents always tell me that I get to choose between a doctor or a doctor :\ lol so no other choices for me although I probs will rebel against them and do maths!
