    How are you revising for citizenship? Which question out of the 3 pre-released topics have you chosen? Just starting revising for it now
    What exam board are you doing? I haven't heard of pre-release topics before..

    I'm doing AQA. For section B there are 3 questions about different world issues & you get to chose on to answer (20 marks). They have already said what the topics will be (pre-released topics) - so we already know the last questions

    That does look a little strenuous I must admit...
    It's not too bad it's just that I'm not good at B3 for biology or C2 for chemistry, and I have barely started revising PE and there's just so much content!!

    That sounds so much easier!! I'm on OCR and our Section B is just a 12 marker on a current topic so it'll most likely be on the Referendum or immigrants

    I just can't do biology!

    And P.E...well, I've never enjoyed PE.

    Apart from prom dancing last Thursday...

    It's probably out of our 6 pre-released topics (for unit 1&3).
    - Being a citizen in the UK - Democracy & Identity - Immigration & the UK
    - Fairness & Justice - Human rights of UK citizens
    - Global issues & making a difference - the civil war in Syria

    - Being a citizen in the UK - Democracy & Identity - Devolution in the UK
    - Fairness & Justice - Sentencing & the criminal justice system
    - Global issues & making a difference - the United Nations universal declaration of Human rights & how human rights abuses are dealt with

    Biology's ok...like I'm not bad at it but I'm not great at it either. But it's just so boring!!
    I like the theory of PE which is probably why I'll find the exam easy. I'm hopeless at practical though so I'm a bit screwed
    Have you already had prom?? That's a little early...?

    I felt I should create a post about the upcoming GCSE exams as no one seems to have done this yet.

    So what have you got, and let's aim to make this a place where we can all talk about our individual ones to perhaps put our minds at ease!

    So I personally have:
    16th May: WJEC Sociology Unit 1
    17th May: Edexcel French Listening/Reading
    AQA Biology Unit 1
    18th May: OCR Latin Language 1
    19th May: AQA Chemistry Unit 1
    WJEC Sociology Unit 2
    20th May: AQA Use of Maths Shape and Space
    OCR Latin Language 2


    So what about you people? What have you got this week? Spill it all!
    I've got:
    16th: RE Unit 3
    17th: AQA Biology Unit 1
    19th: AQA Chemistry Unit 1

    I find biology boring too!

    And no, our prom's not until the start of July. Our school, for the last 7 years, have done prom dancing as the last core PE lesson in Year 11. It's something that EVERYONE dreads, but it is the most fun thing ever!

    See, I'm the opposite. I'm freaking out about the sciences- not so much chemistry, but definitely biology- and I'm real calm about French.
    I think the reason I'm feeling okay about science is because I've done quite a lot of exam practice so as long as the questions are in the same format I think I'll do fine. Best of luck for your exams though.
