    Hello!:wavey:I'm Umar39 and this is my GCSE Journey thread for 2016-2017! This thread has been created to be a motivator for both me and you so that we can achieve academic excellence.

    My GCSE Subjects
    Maths (AQA H)
    Further Maths (unsure?)
    English (WJEC EDUQAS)
    Biology (AQA)
    Chemistry (AQA)
    Physics (AQA)
    Business and Economics (Edexcel)
    Design and Technology (AQA)
    Geography (AQA)
    German (AQA)
    Religious Studies (AQA)

    Predicted Grades and Aspirations
    These grades are based off statistics from my past grades (SAT's, End of Year examinations) as well as predictions made by an educational charity.

    Maths- 8/A*
    English Lang-7
    English Lit-7
    Biology- A*
    Chemistry- A*
    Physics- A*
    Business and Economics- A
    Design and Technology- A
    Geography- A
    German-A
    Religious Studies-A
    Here are my aspiration grades:

    Maths-9
    Further Maths-A*
    English Lang-8

    Physics- A*
    Business and Economics- A*
    Design and Technology- A*
    Geography- A*
    German-A
    Religious Studies-A*
    My aspiration grades are very high and I know that to achieve these grades I will have to work exceptionally hard . My aims for GCSE seem quite daunting especially with the new GCSE reforms. Even with this potential set back I believe that I am working hard to achieve my desired gardes. Here are my most recent grades:

    Business and Economics: A*
    Design and Technology: A
    Geography: A*
    German: B
    Religious Studies: A*

    7A*/3A/1B
    My Ambitions
    I would definitely take: Biology and Chemistry
    I would be interested in taking: Physics, Maths, Business and Economics, an EPQ (?). I would like to achieve as high a grade as possible in whatever I choose at A-Level.

    In terms of university (it's never too early... :wink:) I would like to attend a RG university to study medicine or physics. More specifically I would like to attend Imperial College London maybe even Oxbridge! :jiggy:

    I haven't really thought of a career yet, maybe it's too early to decide (?). I would enjoy a job where I am learning, working in a team and using both academic and social skills.

    On another Point...
    I will be updating this thread over the next few days with some interesting links, motivational quotes, articles regarding 2017 examinations and anything else that may be prove useful or interesting to you!

    Hey! You've got some great ambitions, and if you keep this motivated you can definitely achieve (or even surpass) them!
    Best of luck, and I will be following this thread to see your progress and support you if need be, but I'm sure you'll do great regardless!

    I did my GCSEs this year, so if you need help I've still got GCSE revision techniques and other stuff fresh in my mind (although I might not be too helpful as I don't really know about the reformed GCSEs, but nevermind!)

    Good luck, and enjoy year 11!

    I wish you the best in your GCSE journey

    I have just finished GCSEs and my main advice is to relax and don't put too much stress on to yourself. GCSEs aren't that difficult with the right amount of preparation, and those aspirational grades are definitely achievable.

    I mean, I felt I did badly in the exam and worried about it for months, only to find out I got all A*s but one subject.
