    I'm so stunned by everybody's dedication right now.

    I've started making me revision Flashcards and things, but I doubt I'm actually going to use them for quite a while! 0_0
    SAME! I've just started making a couple of notes. I've enjoyed it actually :mmm:

    Had an ISA and the first half of an English controlled assessment today plus I think I'm starting a biology ISA just as soon as I finish this one. I'm not too keen on coursework and controlled assessments at the moment, I'm starting to think I actually prefer exams.

    Today in music we were learning about Caribbean music, and we were listening to some reggae. My boyfriend told me this joke, which has altered my perception of reggae and will no doubt trigger sniggers in the exam should it come up:

    How does Bob Marley like his doughnuts?
    With jam in'.

    I know right, I don't even know why it was so funny at the time. I think it's because I now cannot listen to the song without thinking that Bob Marley likes jammy doughnuts.... *sigh*

    Haha. Your boyfriend sounds creepily like one of my friends... Cheesy jokes that make you laugh because they are so cliché and they themselves find it hilarious... No offence or anything

    Haha, none taken :-) He has an adorably hopeless sense of humour, but then again my sense of humour makes me laugh at anything vaguely funny.

    Thinking about it, I've had quite a lot of tests, but I've got so used to them now that I take very little notice and only revise a bit. It's the big stuff I'm concerned with.

    Sorry I'm replying to you so much lol

    Art is really fun, at the moment we are researching different artists. I've chosen urban art and landscape, so I have been researching famous graffiti artists, architects etc

    How have you found the past-papers?
    I can't do art to save my life, but it sounds fun

    I've found them quite difficult, I think it depends what the questions are. I'm better at some questions than I am at others.

    Haha, nah it's fine.

    And I guess i'm ok-ish in term of tests - in a brief respite zone... won't last for long though.
    My school is putting a lot of emphasis on A-Level choices atm so I feel it's almost as if I've finished my GCSEs...Which is worrying as I haven't

    Ah, we don't have to choose them until after Christmas. Fortunate really because I have no idea what I'm going to take... There's so many I want to do!

    Well, we don't have to choose them yet as such but still, the emphasis on them is just so much that GCSEs just seem utterly out of the picture. :rolleyes:
    Practically decided on my options but GAAAAH, don't know whether I really want to abandon humanities and such for sciences altogether. Thinking of doing English as my antidote to all the science stuff I also want to do.
    So annoying how some syllabuses are changing for our year. Why....
