    Yes. It just strikes me as a bit odd to go on a forum with such a specific agenda. Still, have at it.
    Yeah, I get what you mean, but this agenda may not even work out, you never know.

    It’s like you’re trying to present yourself as a celebrity or a personality, rather than a person. Which isn’t really in key with the vibe of tsr.

    I can’t really put my finger on it, the way you write is like the script of a youtuber rather than an equal. It’s a tad condescending.?

    Self discovery and reflection. Also, I wanted to have a more calmer time on TSR and do threads that will be more accepted rather than random troll threads I did before.
    Everyone's discovering themselves everyday I guess, even if we don't know it.

    What GCSEs did you take?

    Well that's your opinion. I honestly don't understand your problem with me though.

    Oh that's cool, I'm surprised you didn't take RS, isn't that compulsory in most schools?

    And I didn't know there was such thing as further Maths, GCSE, I thought that was just in A-Level.

    How did you do in Computer Science, I'm kind of a computer nerd so I just wanna know

    Sorry, I meant Additional Maths, not Further Maths!
    And I did RS up to Year 8, but it was an option for GCSE, but I didn't choose it.
    I got an A* in Computer Science which I am very happy about. I did OCR for that.

    Maybe you could give advice on applying to medicine.

    My 5th one is Newcastle for biomedical sciences, which I got an offer. I will be extremely happy if I get one from Imperial.

    Yeah, I might soon make a thread on giving advice on applying to medicine as that sounds like a good idea. The process is really challenging but staying calm throughout really helps.

    I'm doing OCR computing now! I'm in year 10, and we just had our first exam and I got a grade 6 (B) and I was really annoyed I was literally 1 mark off of a grade 7 (A).

    RS was compulsory in our school, but it's only a half GCSE, as we can only have an hour a week of it. If we want to make it a full GCSE, we have come back an hour after school every Monday, so I do with my friend. We're the only two people in year 10 doing that.

    What do you do in additional Maths, again they don't offer it at our school. We were only allowed to do a maximum of 9 subjects. Technically it was supposed to be 8 and a half but because of the after school RS thing, it can go up to 9.

    You have plenty of time to boost your computing grade to an 8 or 9. In additional maths, we just learn a few extra topics in maths that are in A-level. Everyone in Set 1 were meant to do it and I was in Set 1 so I had no choice but to take it. I got an A in it though.

    I did the A* to U one. I was the last cohort to do the maths and english one. To be honest, I'm kind of glad. 9-1 sounds really tricky.

    It's not that bad, I mean the upside is no coursework (yipee) but the downside is you have to remember EVERYTHING... Saying that, I have a really good memory, I don't know why but stuff just sticks in my head

    That's good to hear. Year 13 is way more tougher and that is the year I'm in now.

    I don't have coursework. And yeah it is the final year, so all I need to do is get those grades.
