How are people who are taking their GCSEs next year finding their subjects? watch

    • Thread Starter

    German - I think I am getting better and learning more vocabulary as time goes by, but I think it will depend on which topics come up on the exam (School I would love, festivals I would hate).

    English Literature - I recently completed a mock exam on this and got a 4. I just find what you need to do to get a higher mark just a bit pointless and unnecessary.

    English Language - I find this easier than liturature mostly because there isn't unseen poetry plus the more creative writing question.

    Maths - I like maths and am doing well with the topics we have done. Hopefully in the actual exams I do well!

    History - I am really enjoying this. I'm finding it really interesting and am doing well.

    Geography - Not the most interesting subject, but I am doing well in it. I likely won't do this for A Level. Just not interesting.

    Physics - Somehow I am finding this easier than the other sciences, but I know I will struggle to remember the equations.

    Chemistry - I am doing well at this, but it is just boring. I can't see how most of what I am doing is useful (even though most will be).

    Biology - I think this is my favourite out of the three sciences and I am still doing well. I find the human biology interesting, but the plant biology is just boring.

    R.S - This is very easy for me. Just remember the facts and you can find a way to put it in the answer. Hopefully I do well just to give me another GCSE.

    Also, what are your early thoughts for your A Levels. After some thought, I will probably go for Maths, History, Law and if I get the grades to do a 4th, it will be either English, a science or Psychology.

    English Lit - Definitely prefer this over English Lang, I like to be prepared, 7
    English Lang - Improving, hate paper 1 but really enjoy paper 2 (particularly section B), 7
    Math - Really enjoying it, will take at A-Levels, 8
    Physics - My favourite science hands down, 8
    Chem - We are quite behind, have to teach most of it myself, 8
    Bio - Least favourite science, however the teacher is good, 7
    French - Improving, will probably be my weakest grade, 6
    DT - Enjoyed it more last year, A/A*
    Media - Regret the option, not getting much work done, B
    RE - Very easy and simple, 9
    History - One of my favourite subjects atm, 7/8

    I am thinking a lot about A-Levels atm, I am thinking about taking Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths. I want to go into Natural Science.
