Year 11. I have 4 weeks to finish all the coursework which I didn't do or in some cases ones that we haven't even started yet for all my subjects... I hate being predicted A's and A*'s cos I feel a lot of pressure to do well. It's not that the school wants to look good, people just expect me to do well...

lol I'd much rather be swinging from a lampost than do coursework
I did art and drama

I left my geography coursework to the night before NOT a good idea, I was up till about 5 doing it. Consequently I fell asleep in English the next day

I think geography is wwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too much work. there is soooo much to learn and its far more demanding than a lot of the other subjects...i do edexcel syllabus A...i propose they take stuff of the syllabus.

And its so hard at GCSE apparently there are no gaps between GCSE level and A-level, as there is in other subjects.

My sisters franticly revising for her A2s at the moment and it really makes me feel like I am not doing enough.

I would say there is no point on revising for your GCSEs until about March, but then I only got 5C's and 3d's so I am not the best person to give advice (however my school did only have a 10% pass rate (5 5A-Cs).
The amount of times I've heard you putting yourself down! You've done excellent, you're doing a degree and you we're one of the 10%! So well done!

I may start next week, I'll take a break this week

im really stupid because i was originally doing art and drama...but i dropped art because i hadnt done the summer homework and the teacher got really pissy with me on the first week. Plus my teacher was a *****. And my geography pleaded that i did geography because i was soooo good at it, which is funny because i do worst in geogrpahy.

And how i ended up doing latin is another crazy story...I HATE IT THERE IS SOOOOOO MUCH TO LEARN!!

Geography, Maths and Electronics were the hardest GCSEs I took. I remember the amount of geography course work I had to go all about the River Goyt. I think Geography is a very useful GCSE to have though.

I haven't even started! I wont do much an evening when I do.

If you start earlier you'll have covered a lot before you've finished your syllubus so it'll keep the workload down closer to your exams!

If you know what your doing GCSE's can be incredibly easy. It is like someone said jumping through hoops.

Just look at the GCSE specifications, they basically tell you the answers to the majority of the questions in the papers. To get the best grades at GCSE don't be fooled into thinking for yourself, you must give the examiner exactly what he/she wants. Use their language and terminology in your answers and you should do well.

Although I think that GCSEs are overated I wouldn't call them useless. If nothing else, they're good preperation for A-levels. I guess they are neccesery because in the UK you specialise at an earlier age than other countries -its useful to know that someone doing all science A-levels has a good grade in GCSE english and so can actually string a sentence together...

geog hard?

i think it's really easy. although I am only in first year of GCSE's and havent started our coursework yet.I've been predicted an A* though.

I decided geog over history becuase I wanted to go on the residential field trip lol. I want to do hisotry now though, since it seem more relevant to my future career (journalism - analysing stuff, etc). I'll just have to do it at A-Level - my local college says you don't need a GCSE in it so yer...
