Hello and welcome to my GYG!

I made one last year and it helped with my revision and i got to see what other people were doing school-wise too!

An introduction:

My name is Laura :hello: I'm just about to go into Year 11 and sit all my GCSEs in May/June :afraid:
I play the cello and a bit of piano and do netball and badminton outside of school

My subjects are:
Maths - OCR
English Literature - AQA
English Language - AQA
Biology -OCR
Chemistry - OCR
Physics - OCR
R.E - AQA
Geography - AQA
Music - Edexcel

My grades at the end of Year 10:
Spoiler:
Show







green = :woo: yellow = red =
Maths - 8
English Literature - 8
English Language - 7
Biology - 7
Chemistry - 8
Physics - 7
R.E - 8
Geography - 7
Music - 8

(just so you know, my school doesn't give out 9s for any subject except english and geography (going off last years grade boundaries) so yeah :dontknow:)








Grades I would like:
Spoiler:
Show







Maths - 8/9
English Literature - 8
English Language - 7
Biology - 8
Chemistry - 8
Physics - 7/8
R.E - 8/9
Geography - 8
Music - 8

So i'm achieving some at the moment, and not some for others. I would really like to boost my geography grade this year as i've been teetering (okay can we just appreciate how good that word is:adore:)between a 7 and 8 for a while :yes:








The future: (:eek:)
Spoiler:
Show







I would ideally like to continue at my current school doing A-levels, i haven't thought about going anywhere else tbh :laugh:

I am thinking about doing Maths, Chemistry and another subject :iiam: and you have to do EPQ at my school so i'll be doing that too :woo: If

After A-levels I would like to go to uni and am thinking about studying maths :heart: possibly at Bath or Loughborough :rave:

EDIT: If I decide to do maths at university then i will be doing Further Maths at A-level as my 3rd subject

But yeah i don't really have much of a clue so i'm just winging it until i have a lightbulb moment :lol:





Ummm i think that's everything... so yeah updates a few times a week (2 or 3?) and probably some chibird and other motivational whatsits along the way
Comment if you want (or not :ninja:) but whatever you do, keep smiling! :grouphugs:

Damn good grades If your school is this stingy with 9s you should be quite hopeful though! It was 80% for a 9 in maths in 2017 which does seem a bit low.
I kind of hate how some schools force students to take EPQ though. A lot of universities do not recognise it. But I guess it'll boost your application so there's that.
Best of luck

You grades are great! Tbh I thought you were in year 12 or something. :rofl: How do you already know what unis/course. you want to do?? I'm starting year 12 and I have a list of about 30 unis that I need to look into and that's only for one course I potentially want to do. AAhdsjhagas. :facepalm: Anyways, good luck for year 11. Have you made any resourses for year 10 content yet (if not I highly reccomend you do that. ) Tag me

thanks! yep, i think i'd be getting a 9 in R.E as i mostly get full marks on assessments, and i got 89% on my maths mock (all 3 papers combined) at the end of this year so :crossedf:
i don't think i'll mind doing it, but the problem will be trying to think of something to do it about and stick with it :lol:
thank you again :yes:

Religous education. Depending on your school you learn about certain religiouns. So my school did catholic christianity for 75% of the course and judaism for 25% of the course. :yep:

yep there's 2 exams (maybe 3 idk) and you have a 1, 2, 4, 5 and 12 mark question for each topic and there are about 5 topics i think?
just like a geography exam or something like that :yes:

i'm doing aqa - the 12 mark question has 3 SPaG marks attached so in reality it's 15 marks
