    Although they're our GCSEs, I don't think anyone in my year is worried xD

    I'm almost done with year 12, and I'm still doing this far too much :holmes:

    Every time I'll think "I'll start revision for this exam early this time around"... but in the end, I'll always end up not doing anything until a day or two before the exam :rolleyes:

    Well I have a feeling it will either be really easy or really hard; the French people said their exam was so easy they had to check it wasn't foundation, and last year's Spanish people got a really hard paper (theoretically they alternate in difficulty each year) and our year *should* have an easy paper.
    Awesome :awesome: (I presume you're on Edexcel)

    My school has literally scrapped almost everything different for the years coming up; only French is taught as an MFL, Classics and Latin are kaputt and DT has apparently been decimated (it was already pretty lax compared to my old school).

    Last year I did all (literally mean all) my ICT coursework the weekend before it was due - it was hell and I promised I wouldn't do it this year, but hey I never learn. Ended up doing it the night before it was due again, torture.

    Yup, Edexcel!

    Thankfully, my headmaster LOVES Latin and Classics, so he's going to keep it going even if only a handful of people choose to do it (and it's always a handful). The Latin + Classics teachers are also awesome. As classes are small in 6th form you can have 1:1 lessons, best value for money :moon:

    Though in my Latin set next year there are 2 people (including me)

    tbh, a good work ethic isn't necessary to do well at GCSE, but it helps a lot when you go on to sixth form.

    It's a lot harder to get in gear for A-levels or IB or whatever when you've been doing **** all throughout years 10 and 11. Those who worked hard during their GCSE years will have less of a problem adjusting.

    Why the change?

    You should have gone somewhere that does Edexcel or OCR MEI Maths :mmm:
    Nowhere in Cardiff does either

    Awkward...

    Anyway, I've been set on this place since November ish... (although I was considering private school)

    So :confused:

    Right now my response to this is: "I definitely won't, I want to do well!"
    But tell me this next year and I'll say: "I seriously can't stop procrastinating!"

    I procrastinate by doing maths though, which always helps :awesome:

    Have you decided on what subjects you want to take in year 12?

    Maths, Further Maths, Additional Further Maths, Physics, Economics.

    I'd die if it weren't for the fact that I can get 3 A-levels in Maths alone, I can't seem to bring myself to revise for any other subject (other than Physics sometimes) :holmes:

    Well Classical Civilisation* Classics is actually harder,

    Is basically a study of Ancient Greek literature, the arts etc

    I'm probably not giving a good explanation since I'm so tired :/
