Hey guys

- Introduce yourself, what are your hobbies/interests?
So I love performing arts especially dance and drama. I was the youngest person to receive a scholarship for English Youth Ballet and I have also trained at Royal Ballet and Northern Ballet, however, I cut down my dance training to once a week just before my GCSE exams started due to wanting to focus on academics. I hope if I get into to uni I can pick drama and dance back up again.

988A*A*A*A*AAA

No, thankfully

Hi everyone. I turned 17 in June, I do guitar pretty well I think, have a slightly higher-than-normal interest in astronomy (I guess) and my main hobby is either procrastinating academic work by ****ing around on the internet or procrastinating important academic work by doing maths. If I'm listening to music it's usually either Muse or Pink Floyd.

I got a 9, 8, 7, 6 A*s, 2 As, 1 B and 1 C in GCSE (one of those was taken a year early and one a year late) and those are still the only public exams I've done - no AS-levels done.
I take maths + further maths (Edexcel), physics (AQA), history (OCR) and French AS over two years off-timetable. I'm want to be predicted at least 3 A*s because I'm set on applying to...
Robinson College @ Cambridge, Imperial, Warwick, Birmingham and Southampton all for physics (NatSci at Cambridge).
