    Hey guys,

    So recently I moved houses and it's quite far from my school, it's 3 buses and it's really tiring, the school I go to right now isn't very good, the ofsted isn't good, it doesn't have a good reputation so.. I'm considering to change schools.. This isn't the first time I've moved, so I'm used to adapting to new environments. Just wondering can i still do well in my gcses if I move?... The school I want to move to is a top performing school, so.. What should do I do?.. ... :/

    I would suggest that you check if the school you want to move to is doing the same exam boards for the subjects that you are currently studying. If this is the case, moving should be fine.
    Also, considering the fact that your current school is so far away, moving to a nearer school is probably a better solution.

    Hope this was helpful!

    I think if you are still in year 10 and you move to a better school, it will not really effect things because
    a) You are getting better help/support on GCSE's
    and b) Year 10 is still PRETTY early I mean I didn't start revising for them until year 11 :lol:

    I'd suggest that you change schools - year 10 isn't year 11 where its right at the last minute ygm

    If you want to change, change now rather than prolonging it. Like a previous user said, check about exam boards - but more importantly check you can still take all your options. Good Luck
