welcome! I'm typing this on my birthday, very stressed with more than one thing (love that for me ):birthday:

For those of you who know, year 11 wasn't the easiest year for me. I had a tumour that required surgery which kept being delayed. I then got sepsis which didn't progress very far thanks to my amazing mum who got me to the doctors on time so I could get antibiotics. Still no surgery and developed an ED. Finally had the surgery after another infection. Then I had a seizure at the airport and was hospitalised 30 days before my first exam. Diagnosed with epilepsy and the meds would slow me down when writing and even thinking! Had seizures during my speaking exams which pulled my grades down. GCSEs were extremely hard for me which is upsetting since I devoted the whole year to revising and worked so hard - I definitely won't be getting my deserved grade.

However, I am willing to work extremely hard and get excellent AS levels to go to the university I want to go to, without my (possibly) questionable GCSEs stopping me!

ANYWAY! The future is now or whatever

Just to answer this, WJEC do the EPQ so I assume you'll have them (because Wales restrict us all to WJEC) Don't really keep track of GYG's but I will keep track with this since you're the only other person I know who sits WJEC :lol:. Good luck with tomorrow.
