    *sorry this is actually in the wrong place but when i tried to post it in GYG it didn't let me :/..
    Hi guys..
    This is my FIRSTactual 'official' thread, and tbh I'm very excited to track and share my [somewhat decent] progress throughout year 11!


    "Um that's great but.. who are you?"
    My name is Kaira as you have hopefully noticed.. and im about to begin my fifth and final year of secondary education.I come from London which is THE BEST [Inside joke]

    Im reasonably new to tsr, in the sense that I haven't made any other threads but I do belong to a Skype group with around 20 other tsr members who have helped me with revision and becoming more acquainted with tsr.

    "Right.. so what are you studying?"


    I literally picked the WORST options ever but at least its only 9 subjects ey, well here they are:
    • Geography [AQA]
    • Triple science [AQA]
    • Drama [AQA]
    • RE [WJEC]
    • Citizenship [AQA]
    • Maths [EDEXCEL]
    • English [AQA]
    So my favourite subject is drama (the practical side anyway) and my least favourite subject is Geography.. what was i thinking when i chose that ..


    "Oh, and what are your grades like?"

    Haha.. grades.. Lol who really needs them, right?
    My mock results were seriously bad.. like awful and aren't 'tsr standard' but anyways:
    Spoiler:

    Red - Mocks Yellow -Actual grades Blue - Target

    dont judge meh
    • Geography E2D2B2
    • Physics B2B2A1
    • Biology C2B3A3
    • Chemistry D1C2A3
    • Drama C3B3A3
    • RE E3C3B3
    • Citizenship B3B3A1
    • Maths5= 6-7+
    • English Lit4=5+7-
    • English lang 4=4= 7-
    Hopefully i improve in all of these although idm failing geography.. that subject is pure evil (sorry mum..) anyways im working on it



    "Last things?"

    I dont really have a game plan for year 11 .. woops, just pass i guess. Here are some words my brain thought of to try and be inspiring.. brain just stahp.
    Spoiler:
    Show
    The jump from where i am currently to where i want to be in May , could be seen as impossible to some but with the hard work, dedication and effort that i am intending to put into my schoolwork and revision, I am pretty sure I will be able to make it, facing challenges and difficulties when necessary.

    If you have read up to this point, well done you get a prize! .. ..

    No you don’t Im very sorry..But anyway thank you for reading and I will try to post as regularly as possible (basically when I can be bothered).

    Question... what does E2, C2 mean?
    So, an E2 is an E , but the number [1,2 or 3] shows how high on the grade you are. So a B1 would be a very high B , a B+ perhaps and a B3 would be a low B , B- , and B2 is just like a B i guess

    So this is my first update, of my first ever thread on TSR..
    Spoiler:
    Show
    (okay i know its been like 17/18 days but im sarry)
    I dont really know how updates go, so i'll tell you about my life... and you listen k?

    School is literally the most tiring thing ever. I never even realised:/ . The first day was 11-3 and I fell asleep as soon as i came home. Every day has been like that (except its been 9-3). Last year I would come home and be completely energetic, picking fights, facetiming friends.. homework. All of that would be done and now i feel like a 70 year old

    I have so much coursework to finish, it isnt even a joke. WHAT IS MY LIFEEEE!
    I lost my USB, with alot of completed coursework on it </3. Then i found it - YAY.

    I had one exam for some UNKNOWN reason.. yeesh.

    Tbh i can't wait to finish my GCSE's. I dont want to see another exam in my life.. Oh wait SIXTHFORM

    Make sure you make backups of your usb regularily. There are tons of people who have had to start all their CW again because they lost their USB.
