Hii I'm Joseph, I'm 16 and I'm always tired. In my spare time I play guitar (self-taught), listen to music (mostly TØP), walk my dogs, read and sleep.

For GCSEs I got:
English Language: 8
English Literature: 8
Maths: 9
Biology: 9
Chemistry: 9
Physics: 9
Geography: 9
French: 8
Religious Studies: 9

For A levels I'm doing:
Biology
Chemistry
Maths
Further Maths

After sixth form I'll probably take a gap year, but I'm not sure. I don't know what career I want, but it'll be something to do with either medicine, animals or maths (I think).

I'm quite nervous for Year 12 because of a few reasons: I'm not good with meeting new people; there's high expectations; there's a huge workload; and it was hard enough trying to manage my mental health during my GCSEs - never mind A levels. But, at the same time I'm pretty excited and I think I'll enjoy it.

Here's my GYG: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5546376
Hey Joseph! Congratulations on your grades, they're amazing! Good luck with your A-Levels, they're really hefty so good luck, it'll be awesome! Good luck with everything, and well done for having such an awesome music taste!!

TØP forever.

Was the head start ting worth it?
I mean it was ok, it sort of made sure you fully understood certain bits of the gcse fully, and introduced key topics moving forward. If you were a bit behind or insecure at gcse, or if you feel like you forgot everything over the summer, then yh it's definitely worth it I guess. Otherwise, you probably know everything already and your teacher will teach you the new stuff next year so yh

Hiya! I'm Molly and I'm good at crying! I am fiercely interested in politics, reading all sorts of things and creative writing. At GCSE I was so frickin blessed to get a 9, four 8s, three 7s, two A*s and an A. For A level, as it stands, I'm planning on taking English Lit, English Lang, Politics and an EPQ. Ideally, I'd like to study English Literature at Edinburgh although I am also looking at Exeter, Liverpool and Glasgow as backups (maybe also Oxford Brookes). Aspirationally speaking, I'd like to become a novelist but who honestly knows where life will take me at this point. Cannot wait to go back to school; I need some damn order in my life.
i love politics too and i'm taking it as well! are you a member of a party? (i'm a member of labour). i became an expert at crying after my 5 in history lmao but i'm hoping to make up for it in the A Level. congrats on your great results, and good luck with your future plans! x

  1. hello everyone, i'm saffron. i enjoy politics, art, and i am currently attempting to teach myself the bass guitar ('attempting' being the key word). i got mostly 6s, a few 7s and an 8 in art (no idea how i pulled that one off) at GCSE. i also got a 5 in history but i'm currently trying not to think about that lol. i am planning to take art, politics and history for a level and i'm thinking of taking either politics or law at maybe bristol uni (though i hear that some unis don't accept art as an a level when doing a degree in law... so i guess i'll figure that one out nearer the time? eek...). as a career i hope to go into politics, though i'm 100% sure i will need a backup option somewhere along the way.
    i don't have a GYG as i'm just taking things as they come, but i'm excited to be active on this thread. bye for now!

hey everyone, im C (don't want to post my name)

i got 6 9s, 2 8s and 2As in my gcses and I'm going to study biology, chemistry and maths along with an EPQ at a level.

I want to study medicine at university and I am currently wanting to go to Glasgow, but I am also looking at Newcastle and other universities as well.

I love finding new music to listen to and my favourite band is catfish and the bottleman, but i listen to pretty much any genre of music that I can. I also really like reading and running (when I can be bothered to at least).

My GYG is https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5547192 if anyone wants to check it out and I'd love to see some of yours!

Hi, I'm Becka. I just finished GCSEs and would like to do Maths(certain), physics(certain), and either chemistry or art at Alevel (not so sure). I got 9,9,8,8,8,8,8,8,A^,7,A. I've also always considered architecture as a career plan too, as I've always been good at art, however after going through the GCSE process of exams,I'm not sure if art is still worth my time. I love maths, and want to do a science- physics. My ideal combo would have included art, but now I'm reconsidering it (since I'm not sure if arch. would be too arty based - i just have really good skill in drawing- not actually being creative).
So would a better plan be to take Maths, Chemistry, Physics (keeping my options open) and then maybe make up a portfolio and maintain art as a hobby? Any opinions would help. Thanks.
