    HELLO I HOPE YOU ENJOY LAUGHING AT MY MISERY, TAKE A SEAT
    I'm not sure what possessed me to do this but here I am. I doubt anyone will see this, but I refuse to write in a way that seems like I'm talking to myself.. I haven't hit rock bottom. Yet.

    I'm currently in Year 11 and this is my personal journey to my GCSEs and hopefully to Not Getting Disowned.


    SUBJECTS:(i regret so many of these it's not even funny)
    English Lit [AQA]
    English Lang [AQA]
    Maths [AQA]
    Biology [AQA]
    Chemistry [AQA]
    Physics [AQA]
    R.P.E [OCR?]
    Fine Art [AQA]
    French [EDEXCEL] (why did i take this what have i done i want to kms)
    History [OCR]
    Further Maths [AQA] (not yet started p. after Christmas)


    YEAR 10 GRADES//TARGETS:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    English Lit & English Lang combo: 8//9
    Maths: 9//9
    Biology: A*//A*
    Chemistry: A* (moderate)//A*
    Physics: A* (vv weak)//A*
    R.P.E: A (moderate)//A*
    Fine Art: A//A*
    French: A (soo weak like ur pull out game)//A*
    History: A*//A*
    Further Maths: n/a//A*
    WHY ALL THIS?
    I have a bounty on my head. If I want to keep breathing free air I need "at least" 10A*s, but that would be a little "disappointing", so 11A*s in the aim.

    No game plan atm, just casually looking over recently learnt material and skimming over old material. I need to up my game. Tips?

    I'm not a natural genius unlike some students here on TSR so this is going to be just a tad...mf hardomdsomeonekillme.
    I want to get good enough grades so I get into the sixth form of my choice (which has vv high standards whoop whoop there goes my future) for A levels to take:
    Biology, Chemistry, Physics (ugh), Maths (uGHH) and either Psychology/EPQ (i'd love it if anyone here has any experience/reccs on these two subjects).
    Spoiler:
    Show
    The ultimate aim is to get into cambs uni where I'll go into med (wOW i'm so original) to fulfil my [parent's] dreams of being a doctor. Or specifically a plastic surgeon. I'm talking burns not boob jobs tho, don't get too excited. Idk about you but touching saggy tits for the rest of my life isn't my kinda thing.


    LASTLY:
    I'd love hear about any of you taking my subjects/GCSEs at 2017

    Why 5 A-levels out of curiosity?

    I'm also on AQA for EngLang and Lit, and I'm also on OCR for History and RS. What texts are you doing for EngLit?

    And of course, good luck!

    Thanks a lot! I'm doing Jekyll & Hyde, The Inspector Calls and The Merchant of Venice for Shakespeare. You?

    I need 4 of those to get into uni and Psychology or EPQ is just something that interests me

    Thanks, fingers crossed I will
    I moved to a new school at the start of Year 10 so that meant I could only chose my subject options from the "leftovers". I got French instead of Spanish, Art instead of Psychology and SHP History instead of Modern World.
    But eh, I can't really whine since it's technically my fault for moving. Besides, all I need are the grades


    at least that's what i tell myself

    Just know that 5 A-levels can be quite demanding workload-wise! If you're up to it, I don't see anything wrong with it :P
