    Dragonsneed... to Revise Apparently
    About Me

    Hi. I kind of feel like I should introduce myself a bit, so here goes. I'm Meg and I've never worked hard at anything. Seriously, I just don't try. Ever. Probably because I've always been passable so I never really had to work particularly hard to pass anything. I was never really driven to get great grades, it always felt like a waste of time. Also I was bit of a troublemaker, skiving lessons and back talking. I had a bit of an attitude problem due to lots of reasons, let's just leave it at that. We've established that I'm pretty awful, so mission accomplished I suppose.

    Anyway, I sort of got through my GCSEs alright (7As, 2Bs (not anything special but considering I didn't revise or do any work I'm alright with them)) but these AS levels are a little bit more difficult than I had anticipated. I'd sort of been doing the bare minimum and then I got my mock results and well, it's not a pretty picture (DDDE (if I'd gotten a U I could've spelled dude... like dude)). So, yeah. It wasn't all that great. Admittedly I wasn't expecting much but it hit me harder than it should have.

    What am I Studying and What I am Hoping to Study

    AS History (The Tudors and The Cold War)
    AS RE (New Testament and Ethics)
    AS Sociology (Culture and Identity, Education and Research Methods)
    AS Film Studies (British Horror, American Gangster Movies and The American Film Industry)

    As for university/the future... I don't know. I'm still a little hung up on being a spy but I think that it's rather unlikely. At the moment, the plan is to go Film School, become director or cinematographer and like my life vicariously through other people's acting. And win an Academy Award. The back up plan is become Ironman. I personally, think they're both quite attainable. :P

    Grade Aims

    I'm hoping to get AAAA, which is probably a little bit of a stretch considering my recent results but y'know, if you can dream it you can do it. Or something like that.

    So there we go, that's me. Good luck to everyone else out there participating, I hope we all get the grades.

    :rofl: love the title.

    I hope that you turn it around. If you learn from the mocks and improve what you're doing, I'm sure that AAAA isn't impossible to get from this stage.

    Best of luck! :woo:

    I think the current plan for where I want to end up is directing/script writing/cinematography (I love all the processes so I can't really decide which one yet). I love film, it's such a beautiful art medium and has such a potential to impact a wide range of people, plus it combines my passion of fiction with visual story telling. So I'll probably try to get into film school, I'm thinking NFTS or The London Film School.

    And, thank you. I found him online. He's pretty adorable.

    Yeah, I'm hoping too. DDDE just seems so far away from those grades at the moment. Oh well, time to get revising I guess. :boring:
