    HEYY!

    How is everyone feeling about the upcoming exam on Tuesday? I am confident with Biology and pretty confident with French as I need to just get into an A* for both the reading and listening exam for an A* overall! Hopefully I can get full UMS in the reading so I can do slightly worse in the listening haha!

    Hopefully the exams aren't too bad

    Have you got any prediction papers for biology as they have to test certain topics on spec every three years, this year is the last year of spec so might as well look in to it

    Not feeling too confident lol, haven't revised half as much as I've wanted to so just doing past papers instead of notes. I've got an A in french coursework so far so that's not too bad .

    Hahaha sometimes I find it easier but most the time I do better in reading

    So far I've been memorising vocab by using 'memrise gcse edexcel vocabulary list'. It's really good so I recommend that you search it up

    Haha same here i really hope it goes well because after the exam I can guess if I've already got 1A* or not!

    Hahaha welcome! It is really good tbh but I stopped using it because there's just so many words I have to go through even if I know them which just wastes time. I wish we could select the words we need to learn!

    I need to be on the A* boundary to get an A* overall. However because my reading is my strength I am planning on getting full UMS for the reading so if I get a high A in the listening then it will be an A* overall

    However I had a major confidence blow because I did the june 2011 listening past paper yesterday and I got my first B! That means I need 64 UMS for the reading which is not possible because there's only a maximum of 60 UMS points! But I realised that I actually knew the right answer but ticked the wrong box if that makes sense hahaha!

    I got 56/60 in my writing and 44/60 in speaking but she said it's likely to go up so I am happy
