    Hello everyone, how are your GCSE exams going so far??

    I've so far had an Edexcel Spanish speaking exam, which my teacher said went really well and said that I sounded fluent
    I have also had an AQA business exam on a computer and my computer kept on messing up and I didn't get to finish the last 2 pages(i basically lost 20 marks)
    I also did my Biology Edexcel exam last week Tuesday, which went quite good for me and I guessed what a gastric band was and when I went home I checked what it meant and I was right and I found the exam very easy as it was just common sense for me
    Then I had my AQA R.E(religious education/studies) exam which was alright but I didn't get to finish and I didn't know that question about Shi'as
    AND I had my chemistry exam last week Thursday which went ok, but I left 3-4 questions blank and I forgot how to do some calculations
    how did your GCSE exams go so far and how much do you have left and what are they?
    I've got 19 left
    1.AQA Sociology unit 1- next week Monday
    2.AQA English literature paper 1- next week Tuesday

    I have 23 left : (

    Biology was decent, I think I got a 6 or 7.
    Chemistry was S H I T. I missed out a 6 marker and a 4 marker and a 3 marker because I ran out of time. Expecting a 5
    Drama was... weird

    AQA French Speaking - went okay messed up the role play so that kinda put me off the rest of it but my teacher said I’ve definitely passed
    Edexcel Catholic Christianity - was dreading this but found it quite easy, answered everything and feel quite confident about my grade
    AQA Biology (triple) - in the exam I was so happy, thought it was so easy but when I walked out I realised the mistakes I had made so that was kinda annoying but I’m hopeful I can still get an 8
    AQA French Reading & Listening - I’ve always struggled with listening, and reading has always been my better exam I’ve definelty got above 30/50 in the listening and 40/60 in the reading
    Edexcel Judaism - only one question I didn’t know the answer to but made a good guess and it was only a 3 mark anyway
    AQA Chemistry (triple) - easiest paper I’ve done I’m expecting 90/100 if not more
    AQA French Writing - the translation was literally something foundation people do it was very basic and the questions were very easy too this will definitely bring my overall grade up

    I have 18 exams left 🎉
