Think about what you are passionate about, where do you see yourself in 5-10 years? What do you love, what was your favorite lesson in school. If being a doctor isn’t for you then don’t study it because you won’t enjoy it
Thanks so much!!

I suppose going down that route would be lots of hard work but if you are prepared to do that then it’s worth thinking about? Do you have the option to chance your courses early on in college if you decide you don’t want to do something?

I know someone who had the same thought as you, she now aims to be a biomedical engineer. Do some research on careers that stem from those subjects

Hi!!
I’m so worried about next year. Even though I tried my hardest I did so bad in mocks this year and I’m scared it’s going to repeat itself next year. If you don’t mind me asking what did you get in mocks? I got

Art-7
Biology-5
Chemistry-5 (even though I was so confident with the exam)
English Language-5
English Literature-5(I answered the poem question wrong so I’m not too bothered)
Maths-5(I don’t revise for it at all, I really should)
Physics-4
Rs-4(did an exam after, got a 9)
Spanish-3(one mark off 4, didn’t revise at all)
I also now get extra time because they found out I have dyslexia sooo I hope that helps next year
Hi! I got around the same mock results as you, some of mine were a little lower though oopsie. I've been really worried too about my results next year because I feel like no matter how hard I revise for my exams, I always do terribly. Do you find this too? Hopefully your extra time comes in useful!

Hey guys!
I've been looking everywhere for this thread, I'm so glad I finally found it!
Last year was really hard for my because of my anxiety and some issues with my friends and no matter how hard I tried I did very badly in my exams. I'm really hoping that Y11 is better and that I figure out how to revise effectively because GCSEs are so soon and I'm very worried about how my results will turn out. I have a studyblr - @/rheastudies - which I find really helpful for motivation but sometimes I just get really burnt out and can't bring myself to do any work. Does anybody here take art? If so how do you manage the workload - I can't and I really want to drop it but I can't manage to convince my mum to let me...

Hi!! I have suffered with severe anxiety for 3 years now so I know exactly how you feel! Rather than dwelling on the bad results in your mocks - pick out some positives, think to yourself ‘okay I didn’t do very well on this, so now I need to work on it’ but don’t over work yourself. I take gcse art, it’s very stressful and time consuming. I really don’t manage my work load if I’m being honest, I have so much to catch up but just do bits in my own time. With it being summer I’ve done quite a lot so just use your time. I want to drop it too but unfortunately it is too late into the course and I have already dropped one of my subjects. Hope this helps )

I'm just stressed about having so little time left, as well as picking A Levels. I'll probably pick Biology, Chemistry and Maths but I feel like it'll be too hard and idk what career I wanna go into. Maybe medicine, architecture or engineering,🤔

I want to go into medicine and for A levels I'm doing biology, chemistry and either art/psychology/sociology and sometimes I have doubts because I really enjoy biology and sometimes I enjoy chemistry but my grades aren't good enough at the moment so idk what to do

Thank you! Yeah I've got loads to catch up on before school starts again but hopefully I manage to do it before I go on holiday...

What are your grades? But I feel like if like a subject you'll be more motivated to work hard and so do better. If you are prepared to work hard you can probably do it. You could ask your teachers what they think. Good luck though
