Hey guys!

So; I thought I'd make a thread for all of us who are taking their GCSE exams this year, so we could share which exams we're taking & help/encourage each other with revision - with just over 6 weeks left!

I'm taking R.E (aqa unit 1 & 6)
Psychology (aqa)
Maths (aqa)
English (IGCSE)
Sociology (aqa)

I'll be taking my sciences next January since I'm in Year 10 and can leave it till then

Ah thank you, and yes it is a lot!

And my normal maths GCSE is with Edexcel, but further is a bit more like an iGCSE I guess? It's full name is 'AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics' so it's a bit like a middle-ground between GCSE and A Level.

They're both pretty easy tbh, but maths is by far my strongest subject
I'm expecting an A* for maths and either an A* or maybe even an A^ for further (yes, it even has its own made up grade )

Also what units are you taking for RE?
For the morality paper: medical ethics, elderly & death, drugs, crime & punishment

For the life paper: religion & prejudice, animal rights, war and peace & early life

Oh we may be I'm doing CIE iGCSE English if that's what you're doing!

The morality paper is a lot easier than the life paper, so it's not bad. Drugs is definitely the easiest topic whereas I find medical ethics to be the hardest. I hate how much you have to write in a short space of time and I struggle to remember enough religious quotes the terminology stuff though is always fine
