Hello,
I'm interested in knowing which exams everybody hates and which exams they feel OK with. Therefore, could you please name your3 best exams/the ones you are confident with and your 3 worst exams that you cannot bare. If you have already done your GCSEs, could you do the same but add on a GCSE exam that surprised you (e.g: you thought it would be easy and it was difficult or vice versa). 😄

In addition, any funny or scary stories about exams or exam halls (falling off chairs etc) are more than welcome here!

Thank you and I'll start. 🤔
P.s: If you take/took more than one language GCSE than the exam counts for all languages (i.e: speaking classes for both French and Spanish unless you want to put it as otherwise). 🙃
3 best exams:
French/Spanish writing
Biology Paper 1
English Literature Paper 1

3 worst exams:
English Language Paper 1 (creative writing is not very nice to me). 🤤
French/Spanish speaking (I get incredibly nervous and the General Conversation is horrible).
Physics Paper 1 (I hate physics but this is by far the worst. 😭)

Awww Razzz! You shouldn't say that, I'm sure the other paper will get you out of the situation. And you probably did better than you thought... 😄 Hugs. :hugs:

Heard about that. Not fair tbh, but you couldn't have known what was on the paper and trust me, you worked hard Razzz and your grades will show. ❤

I agree, even though I'm a year 9. What novels did you study? I do An Inspector Calls, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Romeo and Juliet. 😀

Notes: All exams were WJEC, Only Chemistry Unit 2 went awful, struggled a little to find the next 2.

Best 3:
- Business Unit 1
- English Language Unit 2
- Maths Unit 1

Worst 3:
- Chemistry Unit 2 (Double Science Unit 5)
- Physics Unit 2 (Double Science Unit 6)
- Additional Maths

Surprised:
- Better than expected: Welsh Unit 3, thought I would die sitting that one but it actually went great.
- Worse than expected: Chemistry Unit 2, legit everything I knew about Chemistry wasn't there, instead a nice chunk of the paper was dedicated to Bucky Balls, yes... BUCKY BALLS.

Best 3:
-AQA English Lit Paper 2
-Edexcel Biology Paper 1
-AQA French Writing

Worst 3:
-AQA Psychology Paper 1
-Edexcel Maths Paper 3
-OCR Computer Science Paper 1

One that surprised me was definitely Edexcel History Paper 2. The Elizabethan section was... interesting, to say the least!

A story about the exams:
All I can say is... if you haven’t done any of your exams yet (and if you’re doing triple science😂) then prepare for the combined students to make the most noise possible when leaving the exam hall😂
