Hi guys! 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:Spoiler:Maths:Show7. I got the highest in the class. Woo!Spoiler:History:Show8. 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.Spoiler:French:ShowA*. I am literally sooooo happy. Over the moon. This is the first time I have ever gotten A* in History.
French listening and reading :Spoiler:French speaking and writing:ShowA*Spoiler:Computing science:ShowA*. After second try, I got A for both speaking and writing the first time.Spoiler:Economic:ShowDoing coursework (A453) right now. (exams from September )Spoiler:Science:ShowB, 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.
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:Chemistry:ShowLow or medium A . I am going to cry if I get a B because I worked so hard.Chemistry:Spoiler:Physics:ShowHigh A or A*.Spoiler: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.ShowMedium A.This is tricky to predict. My science teacher was saying the grade boundary will be low.
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.Last edited by Sasha Limbu; 30-07-2016 at 16:40.
