    Pascal. Hmmm. Thats veeery french.

    Yh, my school doesn't offer eng lang. I'd probably do better at that and yeah, i'm dreading biology - there's always a lot to REMEMBER and i have a ridiculously selective and short term memory. Ack.
    I don't mind memorizing things for Biology, I just can't get my head around things for chemistry Can't believe I got a B in the chemistry exam though I love English all together, but I hate poetry so I thought I'd be better at creative writing. Got an A* on that coursework

    Oh well done for chemistry and english!! Yeah, I prefer creative writing to poetry but my teacher says my poems are better :confused:it's frustrating as I put more effort into the creative writing. ah well.
    Chemistry is ok for me - once i get it that is! My teacher is really good - explains it well. He's ill at the moment tho

    Ah sorry about that ;( oohh well done A*s in everything apart from Spanish and I would be happy with an A in Drama because the written part is soooo hard :') but yeah, aim high how about you?
    I want A* in everything apart from lang, lit, art, french and additional maths(max is A) so I've got 2/8 of the A*'s I want so far and I'm looking for an A* on EPQ for 70 Ucas points. Unsure about philosophy AS, I'm only taking if I can guarantee and A

    I think, at GCSE level, most things are easy enough to get the A* if you just revise and sometimes just memories text....but things like Spanish/other languages which aren't just about memorising but how you present yourself, and also art/drama which are very much how the examiner interprets your work can be hard to get the A* in....

    And English is just difficult so whatever >.<

    Haha, how about you?

    I can't believe some of you guys go to bed after 12 on a school night. I would die of exhaustion! I go to bed at around 22:30ish and I'm always tired, don't know how you guys can function on such little sleep
