hey What netball position do you play? also can't believe you are learning 4 languages that is so cool! My fav subject is maths too haha x
helllooo (i think u were refering to me when u said this. next time click reply first then say what u wanted to say)

well technically ive already learnt one other language but im just learning to read and write so i think im learning 3 and a half languages? lolll

I normally play GD or GK because im decent at defending however I've gotten called for contact countless of times hehe which is probably why im put into the B team (BUT this could also be bc all the A team players are really good but two of them have left so i have a chance! Also i normally am subbed on if A teamers are absent )

Do u play netball? If u do what position do u play?

I am kinda torn on what to take for GCSEs so any advice would be much appreciated xD my favourite subjects are maths and science, and i really love history but everyone says that it is really hard? any advice x
If you have a real interest in it, then go for it. whoever some advice from me would be to look at the gcse syllabus. Are the topics that you're going to do interesting? also there will be lots of essay writing as well as memorising key dates and terms especially because its history. Also you need to analyse things so id say if ur good at English you have a good chance at getting a good grade at history but for me im really bad at English and im amazing at history. who knows at this rate.

What other subjects are you going to do for gcse?

thank you so much this was really helpful <3
I know it sounds weird but I really enjoy essay writing so that's why I think history might be a good fit. I also find it very interesting obviously lol
Other gcse wise, I definitely going to do triple science as its my favourite and I understand it, and also definitely geography. Then maybe RS and history, those are the two I'm less sure about x

Hey!
i was in about the same situation at the start of year 9 (minus the moving up from bottom set, I moved from set 4 out of 5 to 3 out of 5 though!)

For Science im putting notes into flash cards, and just going over everything so I make sure I MOSTLY understand it (not knowing all the ins and outs, just the gist of it) and revising for the topic tests we have coming up so I then know what I’m not to sure on- fyi I’m doing AQA GCSE Science (were not doing the whole triple, double thing until Year 10, but we’re starting the course in year 9- weird I know)

I’m not too great at maths SO I am studying quite hard this year, I’m doing a lot of practice on hegarty maths (it’s like mathswatch or mymaths) and just making sure I understand it all, as I need Maths a level for my dream jobs! I would recommend the CGP books, or just do as much practice as possible!
Hey...
Thanks for the advice. We have a biology test next week and I am dreading it. But I did get the CGP book so hopefully that should help me. We haven’t even chosen our GCSE’S yet, let alone getting predicted grades!!

I think to revise for maths, I just use a lot of worksheets. The videos and worksheets on Corbett maths are really good.

Right! Hello everyone! I'm Tazmeen I'm in year 9 (obvs) and im 14 :hello:

Options I'm gunna choose: Spanish, French, R.S and Computing (subject to change as the subject blocks havent been chosen yet)

Most of my exam boards for my gcse subjects are AQA however maths is Edexcel

Hobbies: Full-time BTS fan (since 2016), Cooking, colouring and the occasional sewing. Netball when the netball season in my school comes aroundAttachment 864686

Favourite subjects rn are art (i dont normally enjoy art but we're doing something fun this term), maths, bio and r.s

Least favourite subject: Music, Drama and sometimes P.E

Considering my reports, I'm meant to be getting all 8s and 9s with maybe a 7 somewhere (thank you, my asian parents)

I wanna be a paediatrician :rofl3:

My feelings for Year 9
I felt/feel quite excited actually! I'm finally choosing my options and next year, I won't have to do subjects I don't like but then again, I'm sad bc i this is the last year i get to do everything

Interesting facts:I can make seal noises, I'm bilingual and I'm currently learning 4 languages

I'm so excited to meet other Year 9s on here and talk about things loll
Woah 4 languages! That’s awesome...
Let me guess. One of the four languages that you’re learning is Korean?!
I’m bilingual too but it’s an Asian language so I don’t really see how it’s gonna help me with GCSE German or French...
What position are you in netball? I’m GD. Not on the team tho!!!
Lol I’m so happy!

honestly don't know if I'm the best person to help, but I think that a good thing to go by is to express your contextual knowledge (especially in sources work) and use your English skills for things like analysing in as much detail as possible etc. Also it's kinda obvious but have a very strong structure to your essays. Sorry this wasn't that good but it does vary about different types of essay questions <3

Thank you!! I can never manage a strong structure to my history essays - they’re just a bit all over the place...

Supplies are the WORST!
Then again there are some nice ones
Yeah! I had a supply teacher for Frech and our class were so desruptive that our head of year came in!

(Original post by GCSE_beginner)
Am I doing the right thing by taking notes down if I don't know a topic well and then when I do get it, make flashcards?
Yeah. I write notes from particular subjects on flashcards and basically carry them around everywhere I go and test myself. It really helps for science.

Let me guess. One of the four languages that you’re learning is Korean?!
I’m bilingual too but it’s an Asian language so I don’t really see how it’s gonna help me with GCSE German or French...
What position are you in netball? I’m GD. Not on the team tho!!!
Lol I’m so happy!
hehe thanks and yes, one of my languages that i'm currently learning is Korean however i'm taking a small break and saving up for maybe a textbook then seriously start learning although i'm still exposed to the Korean language almost every single day.

What asian language do you speak? Being bilingual can still help you learn German or french, no matter what language u already know. Since you've learnt another language already, your brain already knows what its like to learn another language making it much easier even if there arent any cognates in you new foreign language (or something like that)

I'm also GD but i also play GK

Ofc this might not apply to everyone but options evening just made me even more confused. THEY WILL TRY AND PERSUADE YOU (obvs). then ur gunna be like 'oh no i have no idea of what i want to do anymore' i was like that but u just gotta stick to what u want to do. dont choose bc of ur friends or teachers. i keep having this guilt of betraying teachers lmao but in the end, you'll be at a nice sixth form/ college doing things you love bc you chose want u wanted at gcse. i have to keep reminding myself that bc i keep feeling this guilt of betraying my geography teacher. shes so nice

but yh beware but good luck!!!

(do a language if you're good at it and have an interest in it )
