    Hi guys! :hello:This is my first time taking part in this Summer bucket List competition. All my mock exams this year are officially over! Btw: I am in year 10 doing the new number grade system for English and Math.
    English literature mock exam:

    7. I got the highest in the class. Woo!
    Maths:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    8. I got the highest in the class, possibly the 1st in the year group because I am in set 1. I am genuinely surprised because I thought I did so bad.
    History:

    A*. I am literally sooooo happy.:dancing2: Over the moon. This is the first time I have ever gotten A* in History.
    French:
    French listening and reading :

    A*
    French speaking and writing:
    Spoiler:

    A*. After second try, I got A for both speaking and writing the first time.
    Computing science:
    Spoiler:

    Doing coursework (A453) right now. (exams from September )
    Economic:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    B, but I am satisfied. To be honest, I didn't study for economic because of I had my science GCSE exam- Physic exam on the same day.
    Science:
    I did my Additional science exams last month, getting my results in 25th August. I will probably be on holiday during that time, so I am going to make my cousin disguise as me and get my science result for me. (Muhahahah they will never know…)

    This is my predicted grade

    Biology:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Low or medium A . I am going to cry :bawling: if I get a B because I worked so hard.Chemistry:
    Chemistry:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    High A or A*.
    Physics:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Medium A.This is tricky to predict. My science teacher was saying the grade boundary will be low.
    Oh, I forget to mention my crash work is a strong A* so even if I get a B at worst scenario in biology, I am going to get an A or A* overall.


    As you see from my grades (with the exception of economics,but it's alright because I know I didn't give it my 100% because at that time I also my science GCSE exams), I have work very hard this year so I deserve to just chill-lax during the long summer holiday. In addition, I am super excited for the long summer holiday because I am going back to visit Hong Kong and Nepal! But, I decide to participate with this summer bucket list competition to make sure I am productive and that I don’t just binge watch TV shows and sleep all day during my summer holiday.

    It's the end of school! Yay! Well, it's been a good year. I received a certificate and a photograph for my participation for debate mate, a certificate for Computer Science, and also a certificate for ICE award (It's an award for G&T exclusive to my school) which my Math and History teachers nominated me.

    I got a call from the volunteer centre yesterday. I am going next Tuesday to check the place out. Also, I went to Barbados, the charity shop, The manager told me to start volunteering from September as there is no point of me starting to volunteer now because I am going to Hong Kong next Wednesday.

    Tomorrow, I am going to the Natural History Museum with some of my best friends. I will upload some photos.
    On Friday, some of friends from UCL invited me to Piccadilly Circus. I am not sure if I should go because I have never been there and a part of me is scared of getting lost,but, whatever, it'll be an adventure.I might go to ChinaTown because it is nearby.

    Also, I have been exercising for 5 days steak every morning and I have been on memrise to learn french 26 days steaks.

    *signs* I feel like I have done nothing much so far because I have been completing the unexpected Maths,French and English homework. I might have set way too many goals.

    I am going to start coding Python on Code Academy after updating this. I have completed 41% of the course. 59% left.
