    mine are completely unsupportive, if I attempt to talk to them about future careers they just tut and tell me that the local college does btechs in stuff like retail/childcare and stuff like that. I'm determined to prove them wrong

    + (to the other guy, i cant figure out if its possible to double-quote :L)
    Yes, I know that working at ASDA and my parents/schools way of thinking is bad, but theres little I can do about it other than work hard >.<
    Well, what you have to do is prove them wrong and then in 10 years time, they will see that you were right when you are earning 30k+

    hopefully, i got a few good early gcse results and I hoped that would persuade them.. it didn't. >.< I also recently got given some work experience in a charity shop + school and their only response was "why? you're not getting paid for it." :L

    That really sucks but don't ever be put down by this because you're the one who is going to be successful so you can't under no circumstances be put down!!!! Plus, if your parents don't support you, you should try talking to some of the more friendly teachers at your school and I am sure you will get some encouragement, it's always nice to get some. In your situation, I wouldn't bother telling my parents about any of my success that is not clearly apparent to them, as the only thing you will hear is stuff to put you down. :rolleyes:

    yeah, thanks for your encouragement and i've spoken to my physics teacher (who I previously thought hated me) and he was really helpful and gave me some contacts to organise work experience etc, so i'm hoping they'll eventually realise that ASDA isn't the extent of my capabilities

    Hmm, my indicative grades are all As and Bs, predicated grades are As and A*s. So hopefully, including DiDA: 11A*, 3As. And a B I got last year that I'm not exactly proud of.

    Obviously yours Who takes (or is even allowed to take) 18 GCSEs?

    Personally, I'm aiming for 14.5 A*s.

    Thus far, I have achieved:

    English Lang: A*

    English Lit: A*

    Maths: A*

    Citizenship (1/2): A*

    Well, I do suppose my target of A*'s is pretty low if you know what I mean, aming for around 11ish A*'s, the rest A's except for French, in which I would be happy with a B.

    I am to be quite frank, the laziest person I have ever met and doing so much work just doesn't suit me as I don't need that many A*'s. Besides, I already have an A in the FSMQ which is above GCSE and am currently doing/done 2 AS Levels and 1 full A Level. :p:

    Well, I started all of this a level stuff back in September, so the only exams I sat were in Jan: C1,C2,C3,M1,S1 and RS09. For these I'm aming for A's in all of them except for C3 which I will be resitting in June. Will be sitting all my GCSE's and for a level modules: C3,C4,FP1,FP2,D1, and RE unit and other resits if need be.

    What modules you doing at the moment? C1,C2 and?

    My predictions are something like 7A*s and 2As, along with an A in AS French. That would be nice. :moon:

    Done the same, no idea what it does myself to be honest lol. You could say I am self teaching them, but I do it in my maths class on my own, but if I get stuck on a really difficult question, I'll get some help on it.

    Oh, fair enough.
