    What do you expect to get on Systems (what is it, anyway?).

    All my subjects are going okay but I can't even tell anyone what I think I'll get, because I just don't know.

    LOL, I couldn't be arsed much with my coursework... I did it to a great standard but that's all I've done, I only start working if I know I have too.

    True... although you sort of can slip back and stop listening at all because you think you're much too good for GCSE work

    What grades are you predicted?

    grades that I'm not happy with and everyone else can't seem to understand why...

    mostly A's and A*'s with a couple of B's...

    I got so fed up with coursework that I didn't do my last science one... but it was ok because I still had 57/60 but couldn't be bothered to do a whole coursework for 3 marks...

    I'm in such despair!
    I've been getting bad marks in my mocks for the subjects i expected to do well in and my other subjects i was predicted poor grades anyway...
    not something i'm used to as a gcse straight A student... and i've been trying soo hard
    can someone please give me some words of comfort i feel so disheartened
    A level is harder than GCSE and the teacher almost holds your hand, guding you through it, but at A level you have to work on your own initiative, so it is harder. It could be you just chose the wrong subjects

    Does that top bit mean like a C would make someone really happy, but not you? 'Cause you've missed a word out? If it does, I know exactly what you mean.

    There's no point of me saying what I'm predicted, because I think noo... way too high, I wont get them, I think the teachers just make them up.

    57/60! That's well good! Mine isn't that high, but then I can't do science.

    The top bit means that I'm not happy with my predicted grades, but when I say that my friends are like "why?" you make us feel bad etc etc, but yeah I mean kind of what like you mean...

    For subjects I'm predicted an A* in, I'm like "swearing word" no way

    Same here... I have no exam confidence.

    But it's always better to think and tell everyone you think you've done bad, for back up.

    i love exams, they are a lot better than coursework as you know that you have to do them immediately and you can't just put off starting it to the last possible minute, unlike coursework.

    I have never been good at coursework, I even was put in for the GCSE maths coursework paper, which, incidently, I did much better on than my actual coursework grades.

    It was a figure of speech. The teacher always told you what to do, rather than leaving it up to you. For example, at GCSE, you were given a worksheet to do in class which you had to finish, whereas at A level you might be given a study assignment with no extra material and be left to your own resources.

    at GCSE we would never have been told 'I want notes on this, this and this in 3 weeks' and then just left us to it.

    English is the one that's stressing me out
    I hate the texts we're doing and the teacher we have
    This was a subject i absolutely loved before
    It's also one that's difficult to wokr towards because a lot is to do with natural flair

    For some people, coursework saves them from failing, but for others, like me, it is very difficult to get motived to actually do it all.

    it is just another way to 'cheat' really.
