    Hey! I'm Megan
    I don't really have any hobbies as such but I enjoy baking occasionally and I have a little brother so he takes up most of my time.
    I'm planning on taking English language, German, Maths and Geography.
    I have several routes I could possibly go down and they're all very different but primary teaching is my main goal, meteorology and the German language interest me too so I'm still undecided at the moment.


    Looking forward to seeing this thread become more active!

    Hey! I'm starting my A Levels at my school's sixth form in September and in my GCSEs I achieved 2 A*, 8 A, 1 B :hoppy:
    - What are your hobbies and interests?
    I know this is really bad but I don't feel like I have many hobbies. I'm just always studying for school, but I do like gaming, graphic design and procrastinating on the internet like any other teenager.

    - What subjects are you planning to take?
    Biology, Geography and Chemistry OR Psychology.

    - Your favourite subject(s)?
    I quite enjoy the Sciences now and they have really grown on me over the GCSE period. I also love Geography, and that is one of the only subjects I can see myself doing at University. I also quite like Maths reflecting back on it but I would never take it at A Level lol.

    - Your ideal future occupation?
    I'm really not sure. What I want to do in the future has really been playing on my mind. It's hard to pin point a career aspiration because you have to balance out all the different elements of a career e.g. pay, progression, if it's rewarding or not etc. I do like the idea of doing something in the medical field, but I doubt I could get into med school lol. I also have thoughts about being a lawyer or therapist of some sort.

    Introduce yourself

    Hey everyone! My name's Surina and I'm starting Sixth Form next year to study A Levels.
    GCSE results: (9A* and an A)
    - Biology (AQA): A*
    - Chemistry (AQA): A*
    - Physics (AQA): A*
    - Maths (AQA B): A*
    - English Lit (AQA): A*
    - English Lang (AQA): A*
    - History (AQA B): A
    - Computing (OCR): A*
    - French (AQA iGCSE): A*
    - Spanish (AQA iGCSE): A*

    What are your hobbies and interests?

    I don't have as many hobbies now but I am currently learning Grade 8 piano. I want to get into more sports and stuff but feel like Year 12 is kinda a bad time to start

    What subjects are you planning to take?

    I will be studying Biology, Chemistry, Maths & FM all to A2.

    Your favourite subject(s)?

    I honestly cannot choose between Bio, Chem and Maths. I love them all so much (maybe Maths just edges it?) which is why I want to study them further

    Your ideal future occupation?

    Really conflicted at the moment. I like the idea of so many different career paths. My main ambition is to study medicine and either work as a GP or in A&E. However, this dream could easily change as I am also interested in Maths, Natural Sciences and Biochemistry/Biomedicine Year 12 is going to be so scary because it is basically the year where we have to decide what we want to study in order to make a solid application

    Introduce yourself

    Hi, my name is Jennifer. Hopefully I'll be at sixth form in 13 days doing my A-Levels.

    What are your hobbies and interests?
    I'm interested in a lot of stuff so I don't know where to start so I'll just say typical stuff I'm into. Singing, dancing, drawing (every now and then), gaming (idc the Sims counts) and listening to music.

    What subjects are you planning to take?
    English Literature, History, Economics & Classical Civilisations.

    Your favourite subject(s)?
    English Literature - I'm good at it and I like dissecting things and discovering hidden messages. I also kind of like how things are open to interpretation even though that can make it harder to figure out what to do sometimes.
    History - Again, I'm good at it and it's nice to know why the world is the way it is - we think it's bad now but that's just how it usually is. History is also easier to revise for me because it's somewhat entertaining.

    Your ideal future occupation?
    I want to be a successful lawyer with a lot of money (or at least enough to invest in multiple businesses) so that I can retire early and live large.
