I'm studying... A-level Law, A-level English Literature and a 90 Credit Diploma in Music Performing. I'm currently in my last year!

I'm interested in... Football - i'm a massive fan of football! I also play the clarinet, piano and the saxophone. Currently working towards my Grade 6 performing with my clarinet as well as trying (miserably!) to achieve my Grade 5 theory.

I'm thinking about... going off to university to do Special Educational Needs with Inclusion or Education. I'm hoping to one day work with children with behavourial problems or work with others with special needs. I just want to help others and be the change they deserve!

Welcome!

Hi and thank you!

I'm finding it pretty difficult if I'm honest! I'm not a big fan of the way my teacher teaches me the work as it's slightly patronising towards me which is a shame and makes me feel like I can't do it and how I seriously have to work my bum off to catch up with the others in my class!! However, all of us have the same grade from AS so I guess it's not that bad. I enjoy my Law and Music more. Do you do English Lit?

Yeah I do.

I think the step up from AS is pretty evident, especially in the essays we have had back so far. Much harder to get a top mark! I am sure you will be ok, a bit of hard work and you will be in a great position. Ahhh, Music, I did that at GCSE, Solid A. I found that really hard :P

It's very evident! You doing Gothic? I've just finished my first piece of coursework which was hard too! I have an issue with the clarity of my written work as i tend to ramble a lot! You shoudl be proud to be even thinking of achieving those top grades! I'm looking for a respectable grade haha, not a chance of me getting an A!

I did Music at GCSE too but got a B, A* on the exam though Composing just wasn't my forte

Yeah, we are doing Dracula, really liking it actually. I think it is fantastic. The obvious sexual innuendo's keep our class fairly amused. Haha. What texts are you doing?

I actually got an A* on the composing bit, the only bit I could do. Listening...urgh. Not Good lets just say that.

Ah Dracula sounds good! Haha, oh we do the Bloody Chamber with two girls and three boys so that's always an interesting one with lots of generalisations and stereotypes. We always have some sort of debate how women are portrayed and the boys get too in to it sometimes!! We also do Macbeth (such an absolute bore zzzz) and Frankenstein that we adore. The Bloody Chamber is my favourite though, probably because it's so odd and pretty comical!

That's very good to get an A* on the composing, my composing got a B and a C haha, it was terrible

No that's not strange! I know a lot of people who mix English with Maths. I really do hate science haha, unless it's human biology but at A-Level it's mostly about plants isn't it? You must be very clever though!

Yeah I bet! I chose two essay based A-Levels and sometimes i regret it! However, I know that English is one of the best A-Levels to do so it was why i chose it!
