    So, since the beginning of Year 11 I've found Graphics increasingly hard to keep up with, especially with other demanding subjects to keep up with too. The final hand-in for all our Coursework and GCSE project is in four weeks and I (and many people in my class) are nowhere near done and I'm having a bit of a panic attack, especially as my grades so far in Graphics have all been C's or lower in the mocks, and my project itself is about a D grade at the moment, and I'm worried it wont get finished, despite me spending all my lunchtimes and staying after school doing it.

    In Science, English & Maths I'm expected to get all B's as well as a couple of A's in Humanities subjects like Philosophy, and B's in all my other subjects.

    Its not something I plan to take for A Level but I am worried about how it will look on my CV/records and to future Uni's and employers if I'm a GCSE less than my peers.

    How important is a Graphics GCSE, and how much will it matter to Universities etc if they know I failed a GCSE and am one less than my classmates?

    It would also be really interesting to hear from other people how they got/are getting on with their Graphics GCSE.

    Ps. I want to go into something like Psychology, Social Research or advertising/media later on.

    Trust me, you're not the only one! We're making board games and we're nowhere near done. Everyone just gets on with their own thing because we're all at different stages. I'm finding that there's too much work and every deadline my teacher's given me, I just about make it but the rest of my class don't. It sucks to see everyone struggling and happy just to get a B/C at the end of this considering the amount of work we've done.
    Our teacher doesn't even care anymore. She's always talking about how past years have failed in our school so I think she expects us to do the same. We haven't even reached revision stage! We only have 8 lessons left for revision but it's a relief to see I'm not the only one stuck. :rant:

    That's a relief XD It sounds like we're doing the same project too, and thats the exact same with my class and my teacher! My teacher hasn't actually taught us half of the processes and how to use the software for the project, and when we were revising for the mocks he simply gave us 2 "revision worksheets". Graphics teachers are the worst!
