Tbh it's their own fault for cheating Good luck to them in the actual exam

    Daaaaaaaamn, you must be super smart =O!! Oh myyyy, Maths AND Economics? DAMN! I find maths sooooo difficult!! However, I'm doing Biology and Chemistry too! =D. But I'm doing Business and ICT too, so I have two options of careers; doctor/businessman!
    I haven't revised for science in sooooooo looooong! At school, I'm currently finishing off P3, (lenses and stuff).
    Well, for my predicted grades, they're not too good. All my life I've cheated in exams and the teachers are aware of that so they predicted me B/C grades mostly. But I want to prove them wrong, because in the past mock exams I didn't cheat and studied soooo hard and I got A* in all!!! =D. I think Biology and Chemistry will be easy but Physics might be hard!
    What predicted grades do you have? I bet you're the smartest in your school! . I wish I could revise as much as you do, but I keep getting distracted q.q. But, I guess you're my competition?

    You really do make me laugh LOL Why do you think i'm 'super smart' because let me tell you a fact i'm not as smart as others. Also, i'm not the smartest in my school haha - i wish i was though I would feel great. There are loads of people in my school that are smarter than me - there is this girl whose like Einstein. I'm like ' why can't i be like that' ?! I love P3 (lenses and eyes) Gosh it's soooooo interesting don't you think ?
    Same here some of my predictions aren't as great but i've made my own predictions as well because teachers at school ' have no idea how hard people work in their spare times ' -.- E.g one of my friend is beyond capable of doing higher tier for English but they won't let her like WTF She gets A's and B's I really don't comprehend teachers nowadays
    Most of my predictions are A's and some A* but my sciences are A's but i can get an A* I know i can
    Wow well done , you should prove everyone wrong especially those cruel teachers.
    Haha if you say so Oooh i want to be a doctor too...
    I've already done my IGCSE maths exam last year and i got an A* - that's why i wanted to do Maths - but Economics ( don't even ask me , apparently it's something to do with Maths ) Hope it goes well. How much do you revise?
    Oh, i forgot to tell you i did the CIE english language in January and I got a B - which isn't the best result but i was happy because English is my weakest subject but hopefully i'll do well in May & June.
    GOSH !! This is so long

    LOL! I still reckon you're like top 2 in your school then XD! And yeah I agree, teachers need to appreciate students more. If they did, I would try and make them proud tbh.
    Congrats on getting the A* in maths!!! I have this Chinese friend and in all his mocks, he has never lost a mark!! You and him would make a great couple . I just find maths overwhelming. Too much to remember man....
    I think Economics will be fun, I heard it's mainly business type, but additional maths in it - it's also regarded highly in university than business, so yeah good luck on that .
    Well, when I come back from school, I watch some TV for an hour and go on fb for like an hour as well. Then when it hits around 5pm, I try to revise for like 2hrs straight, then have dinner, then revise until my bedtime which is usually 10:15pm. But most of the time, it's just watching videos online (at the moment I'm doing maths and it's soooooo hard *cri cri*). What about you, how much do you revise? I'm guessing 8+ hours seeing as you get them top A* grades !
    Good job on the B grade for English too! Was that the real exam though? :O I really need to get A* in English so I can rub it in my racist English teacher's face xD!
    Damn, these paragraphs are sooo loooong! I like them tho =D

    Haha i wouldn't say that Thank you. No thank you, i do not want to be with your so called Chinese friend - ( i was about to write fried LOL) and yes Chinese people are very good at Maths. Btw i do lose marks,i'm not the best at maths Really? I don't think you have to remember much for Maths except from Fx graphs just practice loads and loads of questions and then you'll be fine - trust me . Well after school i get distracted a lot so i don't get much done. I do about 3 hours/4 hours but usually 3 hours During weekends i plan to do a lot now because exams are so close and tbh weekends are when you can actually proper revise - like a pro - Haha your teacher is racist!?! Wtf ?! How? Are you british? before you ask me i'm indian
    Haha they sure are You like them? what do you mean ?!

    Chinese fried LOL xD! Nah trust me, maths and me just don't work! I used to be really good at maths in primary school but the step up to secondary was too much, especially with me messing around for literally 4 years up until year 11!
    What do you do when you revise? I can't be asked to get a pen and paper and write stuff down - to much effort! . Yeah, I agree, revising during the weekends are the best, but for me, I just get hooked when my favourite football team are playing (woop Chelsea fc woop)! And that pretty much wastes like 2 hrs of the day :/.
    Yeah, I guess my teacher is racist. He usually makes stereotypes and racist remarks (I'm Muslim and Bangladeshi). He's always making terrorist jokes and etc. To be honest, I'm pretty much the joker of the class and I make jokes on everyone, including him. He just doesn't know how to take it and starts cussing me and i'm like "k...then" He just doesn't like me in general yanoe.
    Yeah I like these paragraphs. I'm like 1 week new to TSR, and to me, it sucked. Mainly because, when people reply (takes forever), it's just plain and simplistic without no effort. But with you, whenever you reply, you actually say stuff which is funny and actually mean it? I can't explain but oh well - you're good at replying LOL

    Haha I used to be sh*t at maths in primary trust me i was in set 3 and now set 1 - I'm like what happened When i revise i do past papers , go over things that i don't understand e.g weaknesses LOL football and their teams there's like millions GAH i can't even talk about it . Basically i don't like football especially playing football You'll probably turn blind if you watch me play. There's this Muslim and Turkish boy in my class and yup same thing as you but it's not the teachers but the students but it's funny although racist. Yay i'm good at replying LOL where is my medal or even better a trophy Haha

    Loooooool, football is sooo fun! If I was to teach you, you'd prob fall in love with football :cool: .
    LOL, tbh, I find racist jokes funny as long as it doesn't offend them!
    I probably am similar to that Turkish boy. I guess I do use his type of vocabulary! Especially in the area I live, the slang has grown onto me I guess . Good luck on your exams too! I really hope that you smash your target grades and be where you want to be in life. Hopefully, all this replying to you hasn't cut down on your revision time and distracted you.....
