    Welcome to my year 10 gyg!
    Due to the encouragement of two other Tsrians, i have finally decidedto start my own gyg! I have mainly started this gyg firstly because i want to communicate with others who have the same aims and goals with me, motivate and help others and of course the whole point of a gyg, to share my revision, problems and many, many more. You can join me along on this journey through year 10 as i aim for the top grades in all my subjects (even if i hate some of them at the moment *cough cough* french *cough cough*).
    Even though many say Year 10 is an 'easy and relaxing year' i'm determined to make the most of year 10 and really buckle down concerning revision techniques and the basics of some topics. Also, this year im planning on doing some work experience so tune in for that too!

    Gcse's i have chosen:
    Spoiler:
    Show






    AQA English lang(meh)
    AQA English lit(meh)
    Edexcel Maths(ok i guess)
    AQA biology (lovin it)
    AQA physics(lovin it my fav!)
    AQA Chemistry(lovin it)
    OCR Rs (so boring sometimes)
    OCR drama(lovin it)
    Edexcel history(lovin it)
    AQA french(no comment....)







    Grades i want:
    Spoiler:
    Show






    English lang-9
    English lit-9
    Maths-8/9
    History-9
    Drama-8/9
    French-8/9
    Rs-8/9
    biology-9
    chemistry-9
    physics-9









    Yes, i know the grades i want to achieve are very high and i believe with the hard work and determination i can achieve the grades i want. I aspire to study medicine at Cambridge(most cliche thing on tsr) so i want to make use of all the resources my parents, school (and tsr!) provide me with to ensure i thrive!

    A little about me!:

    THE FLASH! ITS SUCH A GOOD TV SHOW!!!!!
    if anybody watches it don't hesitate to pm me!







    Wow, i never knew i could ramble on about myself and my goals for so long (its been around 45 mins and im ready to sleep now yay sleep). Anyway, back to the topic! I really do hope you follow me on this stressful but exciting journey through year 10! Thank You xxxxx

    Why do you want to do medicine? Why Cambridge?

    Btw, I don't like sweets

    Thanks for the tag, really looking forward to seeing your progress this year (why are year 10s so motivated last year I was a sack of potatoes I'm so jealous)
    With motivation and a work ethic at that, I'm sure you'll get the grades you want! (and also get into Cambridge whoop whoop)

    Also omg yes a physics nerd- how do you do so well in physics? I literally got 50% on my last test so it's really not my strong point at the moment. Any tips?

    The best of the luck for this year and the next!

    your options look interesting, I'm in year 11 and also doing edexcel history which topics are you doing? I'm doing/have done medicine throughout time (ew), Elizabethan England (have't done it yet...they're leaving it pretty late!), The Cold war (I find this so interesting!), Weimar Germany (this one was reasonably good, I read loads of books surrounding the topic 'cause I found it interesting) Let me know if we're doing any the same
    Good luck with year 10, you seem way more motivated then I was in year 10 (I concentrated in class but didn't do much work out of school till about April..)

    Thank You so much! XXXXX

    I want to study medicine mainly because of my younger sister actually. She has been quite ill on many occasions and when i was in Year 8 she spent around a month in hospital. It really did effect me and due to her hospital vists, i was intrigrued to offer the same support the doctors did to my sister. It pained me to think she was lucky and that so many others in the same postition would have died. Eventhough i get really scared when she goes to the hospital for a checkup, along with this i have a strong interest in science and natural curiosity. These reasons (in brief lol) are why i want to pursue in Medicine! ( she's ok now!)

    I want to study at Cambridge because i like the structure of the course compared to Oxford and UCL. I like the way Cambridge involves 3 years of pure science then another 3 years of experience at a local hospital. Two things i quite enjoy! (in brief again lol)
    Sorry for the briefness of my reply! I'll defo edit it in the future and add wayyyy more

    All good reasons Glad to hear your sister is ok now.

    If I still want to do medicine when I apply to uni I'll probably apply to Manchester, Newcastle, Liverpool and Nottingham. However if I change my mind I'd apply for NatSci at Cambridge so I might see you there

    How do i do well in physics? Well, i guess because i like the subject and in year 9 i struggled quite a lot with it so i did loadssss of practice.
    Physics is mainly about practising and knowing how to rearrange formulas and applying them! Also flashcards for physics are a must have! They have helped me so much in year 10 already! Xxxx

    yeah! it would be really cool!!
    but medicine is such a competitive course, let alone medicine at cambridge :0

    have you done forces and motion in physics? (if you do aqa?)

    can you give me some tips for that?
