    What subjects are you studying?:
    English Literature, Ancient History, History, and Classical Civilisation.
    What grades do you hope to achieve?:
    Hoping for A*AAA, but I think AAAB is a more realistic assumption!
    Plans for after Year 13:
    As far as I know, I'm going straight on to uni! I don't have anything else planned.
    Going to uni? If so, which?:
    The dream is Oxford for Ancient and Modern History, so if I get in that will be my firm! If not, it'll probably be Exeter as firm and Birmingham as insurance, but I haven't decided yet.
    Future Goals:
    I know it's a long shot and I should wait and see how I do with university, but I'm hoping to go on and do a Masters, PhD, and then become an academic. If I don't fancy academia, I think I'll do a PGCE and teach history or ancient history at a sixth form college. The REAL pipe dream is to be an author, but I'll actually have to finish something before I can do that!
    Tell us a bit about yourself:
    I'm Leo (or Sam, I'm still deciding on that one). I have a tendency to get really into things, so I have a lot of varied interests, including Nintendo games (Zelda, Xenoblade, Fire Emblem), Marvel films, and Doctor Who. As I mentioned, I also write a lot. Mostly fanfiction at the moment, but one day I'll get round to writing something original.
    How you feeling about this year?:
    Really nervous, but probably not for the right reasons. Towards the end of last year all the friendships in my group started falling apart and I don't think next year is going to be particularly friendly. I'm not as worried about grades as I should be - I feel that I work hard and I'm finally getting to grips with the self-motivated thing. I just worry that everything other than my grades is going to be awful this year.
    AS Grades (If you wish to share):
    I got As in both my modular subjects! Really excited about that (problem? All my friends got like Ds and Cs and now they hate me). I got As in the mocks for my other subjects, which is also great.
    Blog?
    I have a history Tumblr - accessiblehistory
    I also have a GYG - https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4930660

    i am going to be in yr 13 too I did my EDEXCEL (IALs) AS level exams in May/June of 2016, took a gap year, and now I want to finish my A levels by re-enrolling into school and writing my A2 exams in May/June 2018. Am I allowed to do this? Will my AS level marks be carried forward to my A2 or is it impossible for me to complete my A levels now because of the gap year I have taken?

    note that this gap year wasnt my choice but i was forced into it and now im forced to go back to complete my a levels i will take chem math and physics and ive forgotten every single thing ive learnt in AS level how hard is it going to be in a2 with only 6 months in hand
