Hello!

I’m hazza for short, GCSEs were challenging but I managed to pass everything! I’m doing a BTEC (rather than an a levels) in medical science as I’ll most likely be doing my coursework in hospital - I have regular admissions! My favourite subject is biology by far and I’m going to college rather then staying on at my school.

I’m super nervous about starting year 12, but looking forward to a fresh start and meeting new people that have the same interests as me. I love to kayak because there’s so many hidden coves in Cornwall

Looking forward to being apart of this thread!

Can't we go back to GCSEs now. They are so easy compared to A-level. I'm worried as I might be having a part-time job and focusing on college this could affect me.

Hiya I'm Magda!
Year 11 was literally the worst year for me, and surprisingly I got 13 A*s and 2 As (remark = successful) As are in numeracy and welsh :mad:

A-levels:
Biology (wjec) < fave subject
Chemistry (wjec)
Maths (wjec)
German (wjec)
EPQ (wjec)

The future:
Natural biological sciences/Medicine (but like I don't want to learn about roaches, ygm?)

How I'm feeling:
stressed already, even though I haven't started the courses yet

Hobbies
watching Greys anatomy oops

I'm looking forward to smaller classes and getting work experience done (but then I need to put my head down and work, I don't want to lmao)

Hiyaa! I’m Ro for short

GCSE were stressful and depressing but I got through them fine. They were easier than expected and I revised my arse off for them but thankfully ended up with really good grades.

For A-Levels I’m taking Biology, Chemistry and RS.

My favourite subject is probably Biology

I’m starting a new sixth form in September and I’m nervous but very excited to meet new people and new teachers. (I’ve actually missed school 😱)

I love reading and I’d really like to start the gym soon but I probably won’t have time so maybe in a couples if years.

I’m looking forward to being more independent really and start looking at unis and go out with friends.

Don’t have a blog because I wouldn’t be committed to it like everyone else.

I'm happy with my GCSE results, though A levels are going to be much harder. Kind of scary, lol. I don't know what exam boards I'm doing yet, but I'm going to do History, Psychology, and English Literature. They're quite content heavy, so I hope I'll manage?

Hi
What's your name?
Lucy

How did you find the GCSE experience?
Stressful, yet also really rewarding. Apparently, I thrive under pressure. Who knew? I certainly didn't.

What A-Levels (or other equivalent qualifications) are you taking? [Specifying boards will help to find other people sitting the same exams!]
History (i think it may be eduqas, haven't actually been told for sure yet)
Government and Politics (not sure yet)
Psychology (eduqas)
I'm also doing an Epq as it is mandatory at the sixth for I am at

What is your favourite subject?
History, I want to study it at University and hopefully become an archivist.

Have you stayed on at your school or are you going somewhere new?
I stayed on at the sixth form at the high school I went to.

Your initial feelings about starting Year 12?
Anxious but also excited to get started.

Any hobbies or interests?
Quite like going on walks. Also, Peaky Blinders is back on now so that'll be my life for the next five weeks.

What are you looking forward to the most?
Studying subjects I actually like the content of. Only history was offered at GCSE level at my school so politics and psychology will be a nice addition.

What’s your name?
Maria or Ria for short

How were GCSEs
I haven’t had a good year mentally and although I did pretty well I was disappointed. I’m hopefully starting therapy soon and I hope that’ll help with my motivation and procrastination issues as well as how I obsess about being the best and constantly compare myself to others.

What A-levels are you taking?
English Lit (wjec)
Politics(wjec)
History(wjec)
German(tbc)
Maths(wjec)
Yes I know this is a lot I’m planning on dropping one ASAP I’m just bad at making decisions lol

Favourite Subject?
History or Maths

New school or staying?
I’m going to college whoop! I’m going from a private school of 120 people to a college of 2000 which should be interesting.

Feelings about year 12?
Ok so I’m hyped about starting college and meeting new people and all that jazz but a levels themselves I’m a little scared I won’t be able to cope with them or I won’t do as well as I want.

Hobbies or interests?
Musical theatre, singing, cooking.


What are you looking forward to?
Making new friends, doing all subjects that I like, extracurriculars.

Any welsh peeps joint the Seren Network or HE+ program, I got in by the skin of my teeth but I’m excited for it!
