    Oh, I see! Is the schooling in England 13 years long? It seems like all of you take the GCSEs in year 11, where as we do it in grade 10...

    Well we go to high school until 16 and then from there we go to college for 2 years (Years 12 and 13) and then on to uni if we want. Schools used to let us take GCSEs iin Year 10 but then the government changed it so that the first attempt counted on school league tables so our school made us all wait until Year 11 for all of our exams

    Finally done all my notes! Now going review and do more past papers, you've really kept me motivated because of our similar aspirations! Probably post something on my blog about it!

    How far have you got up to now? I need to do more past papers but there's not many left.

    Wowee well done!! I'm just doing notes after I've done past papers so I can see what I need to revise, as I feel there is no point doing notes on topics I already know

    I'm trying to vary my revision but it kinda means that it is a bit disorganised, however, I find that past papers help me get back on track to find out what aelse I need to revise. Tomorrow I plan to do more past papers and type up history notes for the knowledge tests

    Thank you and yes 5 A levels is the plan, hopefully I'll cope. I do enjoy a competition so, sure, I'll be that competitive edge you need - it should help us both

    In terms of getting better I can't really improve grade wise but I would love to walk away with as close to 100% in each test as I can, so that's what my biggest target is!

    Good luck to you too and I'm sure with the work you are putting in now, you will achieve very good grades by August - all the best!

    If you ever need help I'm always here
    Hey! Just out of curiosity, is it still possible to do 5 A levels? Because we got told that we could only do a max of 4 due to the changes to the A levels. Idk if it's different in other places

    If you request it and they think you can pass the extra a level then yes.

    Awesome! April is being dedicated for review and practise. I'm sure with the hard work, you'll do exceptional! Your approach is slightly different to mine as I do notes then do past papers then review my weaknesses. But it's all about what's best for us as long as it gets the grades!
    Good luck, can't wait for everything to be over! Looking forward to college so much

    I put it on my application and one college said they wouldn't stop me doing them, the other one suggested I take 5 in the first place, but I don't know if they will change their minds

    Yes April is going to be a very studious month I think, and I'm sure you will be exceptional too, after all, you deserve to be

    Good luck to you too and I'm so looking forward to college (but just wait and this time next year we will be wishing we were still at school )

    That's amazing! I wish you good luck with them! BTW, I'm doing geology for gcse rn and it's a lot like geography but there's nothing about people. Just rocks and how geology influences landforms and things like earthquakes and volcanoes. Oh and there was this hugee chapter we did about deposition, erosion and weathering that took us like 3 months to complete cx

    Thank you! And thanks for telling me what geology is like at gcse, we never got offered it but I take Geography and prefer the physical side, so it has been helpful to find out what you study.

    Thank you again and the best of luck with your studies If you need help let me know

    Well tbh I was talking to a friend and I said that even if I knew everything that ever could be asked I would still feel unconfident and want to do more
    That is true x
