    Our frees are quite from it; we aren't allowed to leave school bar for break and lunch and thus we are expected to use our so called "frees" as "private study" in which we are expected to revise, seek help from teachers, and complete homework. In reality, there has never been such a period where I have not studied.
    Ah fair enough, I mostly use my frees to relax because I feel like I can barely catch a break with the amount of lessons I have per day

    Had my first lesson on Tuesday, seems boring for me :/
    Yeah I've been told by my friends who have started it that it's not the most exciting way to spend their free time on but I feel like I need everything I can get for UCAS points

    hey guys...I think I've posted on here like twice since school began oops
    is anyone else finding aqa chemistry hard? like super duper incredibly hard? my teachers are going through the topics really quickly and it's stressing us all out
    I'm finding edexcel snab biology, aqa french and (i think aqa?) maths fine so far, it's just chem that's killing me slowly!

    edit: I have 14 frees per fortnight. we're not allowed to leave during them but we can leave during lunch. after half term we can leave at lunch if we don't have any lessons after it. I normally spend my frees doing homework or relaxing~

    Hey I'm *withholds name in fear of people from school finding me*

    I play the violin and did my Grade 7 in May (in 5 orchestras - feel free to lol @ my geeky life) I got 11A* and an A^/A** in Further Maths at GCSE, but I swear its just because i have a photographic memory!

    Im taking Chemistry, Biology, Maths and English Literature, and I think at the moment my favs are Chem and bio they're super interesting!

    I'm hoping to become a doctor and study medicine at uni (liking the look of UCL, Imperial and Cambridge atm although i keep changing my mind!). Hopefully my A levels turn out as well as my GCSEs, and I can get some good work experience which is SO hard to find and I'll get a place (fingers crossed!)
