    Well, I'm going into year 10 this September so I only did one GCSE im advance and that was urdu (which I've been speaing for forever so it was quite easy), but I heard that most people dropped grades in English language and English Lit. Is this true?

    RE and English language, I got a B for both. wasn't bothered about getting a B in RE but I was really annoyed about English, it was a low B too, only 7 marks off getting a C :eek: which would have meant that I couldn't do English at A level which would have ruined everything, so glad that never happened. I messed up my exam timings, spent 40 mins on an 8 mark question

    English was messed up last year due to grade boundaries problems

    I don't understand it! My powerpoints were beautiful :mad:
    I didn't really revise for the exams though. I should have.

    I thought it was going to be Art because I worked painstakingly on my first project, with hundreds of hours of sketches, research and general time wasting things in my sketchbook, but I didn't finish my final project until the day before. I was literally sewing my quilt together at 4AM and it turned out to be weird looking: you could tell which parts I had done the year before and which were night before. Still! I managed to get 200/200! I had a figurative heart attack when I saw that, but when it comes to GCSE Art, BACKUP IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.

    It was the second project that I ****ed over entirely. I just didn't put the work in. My final piece was ok, but I didn't have the backup work. There was a maximum limit of 8 A2 pages. I handed in about 4. I spent the last crucial night fixing up my first project instead of the second which had virtually nothing. ART STUDENTS, DO NOT NEGLECT WHAT YOUR TEACHER TELLS YOU TO DO. NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

    I still got 130/160 which put me into solid A territory, even though I was expecting a D...But...the trauma and the knowledge that I'm a ****ing, lazy brat that brought it on myself is simply too much to bear. Needless to say, I dropped Art for A levels.

    Wow, that's rather long. Tl;dr: If you're doing GCSE Art, do what your teacher says. Do it well and in time, or your sanity will suffer.
    AND DON'T NEGLECT CITIZENSHIP, CAREERS AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT. THE ANSWERS ARE SO RIDICULOUSLY EASY THAT YOU WILL NOT BOTHER REVISING AND THEN YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED.
