    And how are some people allowed to take their GCSES this year? I'm only allowed Polish, because it's my native language. All our other exams are linear and taken at the end of Yr 11.
    My school does GCSEs from year 9

    But then, for example, I miss out on a year of French because I'm sitting it this year. It results in cramming stuff in, there are pros and cons

    Hey, I'm Daniella and also in year 10
    For GCSEs I'm taking:
    English Language (AQA)
    English Literature (AQA)
    Maths (AQA)
    Science (AQA)
    History (AQA)
    Religion and Ethics (Edexel)
    BTEC health and social (Edexel)
    French (AQA)

    I've also noticed the massive difference between year 9 and year 10 in terms of the work overload. Ideally, I would want to be a child psychotherapist or work further in the medicine, science and psychology fields.

    english lang - aqa
    english lit - aqa
    maths - edexcel higher
    biology - aqa higher
    chemistry - aqa higher
    physics - aqa higher
    computing - ocr

    my school starts gcse studies a year early in year 9, so i've already got a bit of gcse experience under my belt

    i'm predicted 7/A's minimum in all my subjects but i want to get the best grades possible as i want to study computer science at cambridge and there is a new focus on gcses for uni admissions as there are no more as-levels

    good luck to all of you and remember that there is no substitute for hard work

    yeah, i found out about jake wright during a 5-day coding camp in cambridge last summer (we stayed in queens ) i've watched two thirds of his videos, and it's really addictive.

    my experience in cambridge along with his videos actually convinced me to think about cambridge (i actually wanted to go to oxford before the camp )

    Hello my name is Nicholas and I'm (quite blatantly) in year 10

    My subjects are

    Triple science (AQA)
    English lit (AQA)
    English lang (AQA)
    Math (Edexel)
    History(Don't know)
    French (AQA)
    Music (Edexel)
    Computing (OCR)
    Religious Studies (Edexel)

    My school starts GCSEs in year 9, so I'm already halfway through most of my courses.

    I'm predicted to get 6 in all my subjects but really other than in French (which is by far my worst subject) I'm aiming for 7/8 in every other subject.

    My favourite subjects are English and Music, mostly for their ability for creative expression as I'm middling in analysis of creative works.
    I would like History were it not for the masses of knowledge ive already amassed outside of school, making school History pointless for me. It's really the only subject that I fell I could get a 9 in.

    I want to be a musician but with my finances in mind i want to get a computer science job, so I want to get the needed degree at either Cambridge or Imperial.

    Good luck everyone and remember that there is no room for complacency, only hard work.
