    Anyone got their National Insurance Number yet?

    Yup! Got it a few weeks ago, but haven't used it at all since. At least it means we can go out and get a job!

    Also I'm gonna make a new Skype account to join the group, since my current Skype account name is Cringey with a capital C.

    Hi Emily
    There are many people on this thread that would be more than willing to help you with mathematics, English or any other subject. Feel free to PM any other users (including myself) with any questions you may have.
    Yes, this will be the best Year 11 thread with the most motivated students.
    Thank you I'll defiantly take you up on that offer nearer the time of the exams 😂
    I am excited to have this thread for year 11 I think seeing everyone else motivated will help motivate me

    Is anyone else doing the English speaking exam when you go back? I have it in the first week we go back and wondering how everyone's preparing for it.

    Dreading all the coursework from September- December. I have to finish my geography, all three sciences, history and French writing.

    I've had mine. It was nothing really, I just spoke about a subject I was passionate about, without any real script, and got a distinction, along with most people in the class, with a few merits.

    Hi Vin :wavey:
    Welcome to the Current Year 11 thread!
    I am also interested in studying medicine and potentially becoming a doctor.
    Have you thought about A-Level options/Universities or am I worrying you?
    I don't think there is a Whatsapp group atm, but I think there is a Skype one. I would personally advise against a Whatsapp group because you will be exchanging sensitive and personal information (your phone number). This may not be the safest way to keep in touch with other Year 11's. I suggest you stick to TSR as it's safer.

    If you look at AQA they've released a draft spec which Ofqual needs to approve. Also expect a PM from me any moment now.

    Hello Ben!

    Is there any reason why you're stressed about Year 11? Or is it just general nerves caused by the uncertainty?

    You still have ages to decide what you want to do! Although, I'd definitely recommend having an idea of what degree you want to study/what job you wish to get when considering your post-16 options, whether it be A-levels, BTECs, or otherwise

    Hi I'm Casey I've got a bit of a range of hobbies and interests, but they mainly lie in psychology and physics/astronomy/aerospace. I've been to a smallpiece course in the past regarding aerospace and I also attended SSUK at the beginning of this summer which was an amazing experience - I'm going for seniors next year. I'm doing an internship at 7cups with is 8 weeks long and am currently on the 5th week. I generally like helping and volunteering, as my internship + my volunteering takes up about 14/15 hours a week currently (my internship is 10 hours pw).

    - English & english lit (AQA), maths(edexcel), computer science (self-study, OCR), triple science (AQA), DT (AQA), German (Edexcel), History (OCR)

    - Hell yes I'm ready for GCSE's. Bring it on :P

    - I don't have a favourite subject. I'm into everything, really, and it can change a lot.

    - I used to be very focused on going somewhere in the realms of physics/astronomy/astrophysics or engineering in that area, but through doing my internship I've discovered that I'm actually an incredible listener and have already been acknowledged by their appreciation team for my incredible reviews and ratings. The fact that I've been able to change people's lives has meant a great deal, which is why I'm now inbetween the two. My A-Levels will be something along the lines of maths, physics, dt/engineering and psychology.
