    So yeah, if you want to then tell us what you got in your most recent mocks and what you're picking for A-level, and your career of preference if you know it!

    If you don't know what career to go into, maybe we can help give some ideas if we know what A-levels you're looking to take

    Here are mine!

    We've not exactly completely finished our mocks. In fact, we have hardly started them, so I don't exactly know my grades for this but my predicted are:

    Maths - 8
    English Lang & Lit - 8
    Biology - 8
    Chemistry - 7
    Physics - 8
    German - 8
    French - 7
    Business Studies - A*
    RS - 8

    I am honestly so disappointed in my predicted grades for Chem and French, because I think I can achieve an 8 in both of them. Also, I'm hoping to get a 9 in German and RS. In my German speaking mock (the only one we've done so far) I got 56/60 so that's good. I regret picking business. The worst decision ever hahaha.

    I'm hoping to study:
    Biology
    Maths
    German
    Politics

    I'm not too sure about careers, but either something to do with law or neuroscience. I could either do PPE or neuroscience or law at Uni, but haven't decided yet

    Yeah I am doing AQA , it's quite difficult and my teacher (who is French) said that some of the words we have to learn he wouldn't expect all French teenagers to know, let alone English-speakers!

    He seems annoyed that they've made French so difficult as it means people are put off of learning it and it is actually a great language!

    they are really hard. honestly. however, my french teacher (also native) has no empathy towards us. our speaking answers are really long, and she marks everything really harshly, and compares us to how she was when learning English. However, she's really good.

    which textbook do you use? The AQA one or the Studio textbook? And are you close to finishing the textbook?

    I use the AQA one I think. We're on track to finish apparently, I think we are 2/3 of the way through. Currently doing health.

    Do you have any back-up plans if you don't make it into Vet school? Because I know that is important, but I have nooooo idea what uni course I would pick to do instead!

    I may put down veterinary biosciences as my 5th option but if I don't get accepted the first time round I'm going to take a gap year and reapply
