    heyyy - i’ve decided to make a new thread so that people can make some more friends! you don’t just have to be in the years/age groups i have listed but i’ve used this as a guideline!

    i’ve noticed that there are lots of friendly people on here and sometimes people can trail off a bit and start chatting - even though their thread is a GYG or a question or something and i thought it might be nice to make one especially for making friends and sharing interests etc.

    i hope it’s useful! you can also ask for advice here, but bear in mind it might be easier to ask on a thread of your own (it depends really)

    there’s probably something like this already out there but i haven’t seen anything so welcome!

    if you want you can check out my GYG while you’re here - i haven’t made any other threads yet but perhaps soon!!! i’m fairly new to this all...

    i’m excited to see what this becomes; anya

    Hey cloudbubbles!
    I'm TOASTIEKID, in year 11 (yay) and I like playing tennis and guitar, also play piano (but I don't practise enough) I also love food, most my life revolves around food: my mood, where I'm going etc, all decided by food.
    What music do you like? I'm really into rock/ alternative music like the killers, blink-182 and Bastille though I'm still a sucker for the script and the vamps (seeing them both next year!!!)
    Hope you're having a nice break (if you have half term this week!)

    WOW I love Mr Brightside, I’m learning it on guitar in a few weeks and I can’t wait! I used to be really into twenty one pilots (I knew most the words to ride 😂)
    I came on TSR for revision tips and it’s definitely helped, pre tsr I used to get 4-6s (tho I was targeted much higher) now I’ve improved my revision technique a lot and definitely increased my grades! Why did you join TSR?

    woo yay we have a similar taste in music then!
    ive just been struggling loads with confidence and even though i’m predicted high grades and always have been, i needed somewhere that could motivate me and hopefully i can ensure that i do achieve those 9’s etc.

    so hopefully i too will improve my grades and revision techniques!

    Kinder bars❤️ I’m doing Macbeth, Jekyll nd Hyde and Inspector calls with love and relationships. Ugh the amount of homework I still have to do is beyond imaginable. Do you have any plans for uni or work yet?

    Yep I’m in year 11. I haven’t started revising yet (I’m not even organised enough to do my homework). I guess you’re in yr11 as well then. When are your mocks? Mine aren’t till January so I think I’ll start revising in the Christmas hols. How’s school going in general for you?

    I have no ideas for my mocks, we have a maths exam every 3 weeks. I generally am (gratefully) doing good but the thing that holds me back is my sister: she did not do good in GCSE's which stresses me out for some reason...it makes me think she won't become anything in life!

    Thats good that you’re doing well☺️ I’m sure your sister will go on to do something that makes her happy, maybe she doesn’t want to pursue an academic route? There are plenty of other options👍 are GCSEs important to you, as in do you plan on getting 7s, 8s and 9s?

    Well I am hoping to get 6/7s as they are my predictions.
    To you and everyone else reading..do your GCSEs actually affect your life, does failing them mean the end to everything. Yes I understand they have an impact on top unis and type of courses but I'm show it does not affect as much as people think it does.

    That’s quite a tough question. GCSEs are very important to me and my family (I have eight 9 predictions, one 8 and one 7 so there’s a fair amount of parental and self pressure) and the better the grades I have the more insurance I have for uni as we no longer do AS and the courses I’m looking at (med) require v good grades. However as you say it’s definitely not the end of the world if I wasn’t to get ‘good’ grades. they don’t mean everything and for most people (uni and course depending) they really don’t mean that much or have a massive impact. What’s your opinion? Sorry for the mini essay😂

    Haha lol it's okay.
    My opinion, If you aspire to become a doctor or whatever then yes GCSEs is a build up but if you fail it's not the end of the world. It entirely depends on your determination. People enrol at colleges at the age of 22+ so it's ok.
    There is hope for everyone.
    I do hope you get all your predicted grades.

    Yeah I have so much homework! Macbeth is legendary just been revising it (mock on Monday!)
    I am struggling to decide what to do in the future, I’ve applied for completely different courses at each sixth form I’ve applied to as I have no clear idea! Wbu? X
