    Not doing chem until year 11, biology is cells and physics is energy stores and energy pathways, wbu?
    (Original post by labrador716)
    Yeah we're doing cells in biology which is impossible (probably because of mr fuller), energy transfers and atomic structure
    For us in physics we are doing energy too, bio I have had substitutes so I haven't had my real teacher yet but with the substitute teacher we did active transport, osmosis and cells and in chem we are doing balancing equations and conservation of mass. Lol I don't even understand half the stuff

    If you don't mind me asking, how is your school system
    It's fine... what do you want to know? We start the school in January, and it ends in December. Um, we've got 2 weeks spring break, 4 weeks summer, 2 weeks fall, and 6 weeks winter. Our holidays are every ten weeks or so, with some long holidays along the way. I'm doing the IGCSE next year in fall/winter.

    So if you ever wanted to do uni in the uk, you'd have like a 8 month break from education

    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!

    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

    It's really complicated... my mom is Indonesian Chinese, my dad is Indonesian Chinese American (and a little bit Dutch), but I was born and is still living in Singapore. I consider myself American, and I don't speak any Chinese AT ALL...

    Omg hi! You're the second Nigerian i've found on this site. No, i'm not Yoruba actually- i'm from Benin City Edo state (ethnically Edo), its not as popular as Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa. I've not met many Hausa people before.
