Help I need advice for my GCSEsWatch
I'm currently going into 5th year and Im going to be sitting my GCSEs in a year. One problem is, the only thing im good at is ICT, History and Drama - Im confident I could manage two As and one B from these subjects. My teachers have told me I need 6 passes, but im sure the most Ill get is 4. This is how I see my results panning out;
Religous Education; G - As an aethist, I dont have much interest in this subject, Iam thinking of dropping it and using the time to work on other subjects such as science and maths, do you think this would be a good option, I will never pass this subject or get close to an E. Please Comment on this
Okay, so 6 passes gets me into 6th where I can do my A-Levels, but if I dont get them, is my life over like all the teachers say? - What other options do I have, I feel really stressed.
The career path Id like to follow is definatly ICT/ICT Consultancy/ Web Design
Iam already an experienced web designer all I need is advice.
All comments would save my life.
Thanks for the comment
But the problem is, will I beable to get a job without Maths as a GCSE pass?
Thanks for the comment
If you only need a C do Intermediate level - not higher
Get someone to give you all the past papers they can - school or buy them from the board if necessary - ask school what board you are sitting and go to their web site to get papers - it will be worth it.
Do the papers slowly so you understand every question. If you can't do a question ask your teacher to explain if they are human (though I guess they aren't if you are struggling) or post it here - find how to do it. Keep going like this till you can do papers - thats how to pass exams. You have plenty of time to pass this. Start now!
Yes you can!!!
You are a miserable dog. I got 8 A*'s and 2 A's.
The strageties are to REVISE and to do more pass exam papers!
Most colleges give you the option of re-sitting GCSE Maths and English if you're not proficient in these subjects. Also, with many new initiatives from the government emerging such as foundation degrees and such like, you'll have many doors open to you in the future.
PS. Take no notice of the individuals on here who boast their A* grades and attempt to make you feel stupid - trust me, you're not!! What they achieve as regards academic excellence, they may lack in personality, and no-one wants to work with a meanie.
i never did homework revise or extra lessons, so i dont mean be a geek just listen and it will get you far!!
as for me i messed about in maths sat with all my mates never did homework and didnt revise and still came out with a grade c havent a clue how.
you may all think im mad but if you go in to your exam hall a few days before your exam and mentally paint an equation or summat u find difficult to remember on the wall when your sat in the hall you will look up and remind yourself!!!! sounds mad but it works anyway hope ive helped and would like to know how you get on!!
Do some revision in the place you're gonna be taking your exams, and chances are you'll remember more accurately!
