    I was petrified going into the mocks so God knows what I'm gonna be like in the real thing.

    I know GCSEs aren't the most important exams in the world, but they are the formal exams I've ever done so I'm just worried...

    Anyone else?

    will be in about 3 years time when the curriculum changes so there's no AS levels. Then all you can apply to uni's for are your GCSE's

    3 years? That's happening now already right? I have friends doing reformed a-levels already, skipping AS. I'm pretty sure some of my a-levels are reformed, too

    Yeah maths hasn't reformed in the sixth form I'm looking at. I think it varies for different schools. A lot of schools have reformed and a lot haven't / only have for some subjects - but yeah I'm pretty sure that change has already started

    Maths A level does not reform till 2017. I applied to sixth form to study Maths from 2016 and sixth form college said I won't be affected by the changes in Maths although I would be with the three sciences.

    Yes true but count yourself lucky you only have to do the new spec with Maths and English only the current year 9's have to take the new spec in all the subjects. I have the do the new A level specs with Biology, Chemistry, and Physics which reformed 2015 not too excited with that as the old A level specs were much easier.

    Really I do feel blessed to be a 1999 born because I don't have to take those new horrible GCSEs.

    I am more nervous and petrified as the real GCSE exams 2016 start 16th May literally 17 more days left.
