    I'm OK, today I'm sitting a few Maths papers and possibly an Additional Science paper just to see how hard they are. Do you have any competitions on Saturdays and how often do you compete?
    We do occasionally have Saturday competitions but its mainly a Sunday thing there are some weekday bmc competitions though for fast times and pbs

    I tend to compete twice a month from march to September so I normally do 12 solid comps could do more but I'm still growing and get painful leg fatigue lol

    Good luck with your revision I have done absolutely nothing in terms of revision
    I don't have much time cos I'm always travelling around the country to excavations, competitions and stuff

    That's true, you mustn't over do it. I did that in swimming last season and I gained quite a few injuries, which not only affected my swimming but also my tennis performances. Have you ever considered mountain biking?

    I'm always revising, I just like to know where I am at and which areas I can improve on; so that I can perform to the best of my ability in the exams. You could call me a perfectionist, practice makes perfect I did have that issue when I first started my GCSEs but now I've come to a good balance between my sports training and revision.

    My name is Emily

    I'm taking further additional science, English language, maths, geography(urgh!!), computing, ICT, and German. I have already sat exams for core science(last year, got an A), additional science, English lit and religious studies.

    I am hoping to go to college to study Chemistry, Biology, Religion and either Computing or Psychology.

    I dance and read a lot. I also have an unhealthy obsession with Taylor Swift.

    I don't feel any different than I did going into previous years! Can't wait for college.

    Sometimes I over do it in training tbh
    I do a little bit of mountain bike training on the winter I send a few weekends down at chilten hills mountain biking and front climbing sometimes bouldering to
    I just do mountain biking to increase my quad and hamstring strength but I have considered racing I don't think good enough though

    What's your balance between training and revision? I'm going to do myself a personal timetable. My main focus will be maths as I really want an A* in it

    Well it seems like you've got quite a lot of potential in you sport. What's the Chilterns hills like? I've heard its beautiful up there. I say up as I am in London, so it's up for me and down for you XD


    Well on Tuesdays and Thursdays I do swimming training from 5-8 on Mondays I have tennis training 6-9 and on Saturday mornings I have tennis training from 8-12 am, so I normally revise on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. I tend to do 20 hours a week.

    Haha it's quite a way down the M1 and on the M40 its Chilterns and not chilten right?

    Yeah I love down there. There's some good hills like Haddington etc, climbing the dip on both bike and foot is a killer! The river Thames and wye provide gorgeous scenery, its a real privilege to go down there and I would recommend it to anyone who likes quiet British countryside.


    I enjoy a good picnic after sessions, I would also reccomend camping if you don't fancy staying at the local bnbs the one near Leighton buzzard is decent though !

    Cheers what grades are you looking at?

    Hey Emily! Welcome to the thread! I'm Mary. We seem to be doing many of the same subjects ( I did Core Science last year too, Additional this year as well as Maths, Religious Studies and Ethics, English Digital Communications and French) Next year I'll be doing Further Additional Science, History, Music, ICT, Philosophy and Ethics and FSMQ. How did you find the Additional exams? I'm guessing you did AQA too?

    It is spelt 'chiltern' yes. I would love to visit the Chilterns, I will have to persuade my family to spend a weekend there The river Thames you mean? The river Thames doesn't venture through the Chilterns. I do enjoy camping, I've camped at the lake district this year.

    I am aiming for A*s in Core Science, Additional Science, Maths, Geography, English Literature, English language and P.E, A's in Art and R.E and and A in IGCSE French.
