First day of year 13 today. I only had 2 lessons so I didn't have to do much work, but my chemistry class has increased in size to 14 people (because they merged classes) and it's now far too crowded for me...

In my school there's only one FM class and it went from 16 to 6 after year 12 mock results came out.

Hiya, I'm Molly and I am totally terrified of this year.

What are your hobbies/interests?
Love writing and coming up with storylines in my free time. Most of it, though, has been taken up with listening to music and giving JK Rowling all my money.

What are you studying?
English Literature, English Language, Politics & EPQ.

What grades do you hope to achieve?
I need AAA for Edinburgh (hopefully they don't reject me lmao) but I'm aiming as high as I can.

What are your plans for after Year 13?
Hope to go straight to uni, might do a study abroad too. Maybe get some work experience in publishing? Idk.

What are your goals for the future?
I hope to one day write a book. Current ambitions reside in not failing my A levels, though, of which I am convinced I will.

How are you feeling about this year?


AHHHHHHh. Already quite nervous because I'm just too relaxed at school. Far too relaxed. Last year I was doing all this work all the time and I had all this motivation. I guess I just need to find it again :/

@sososnake as long as ur school brings ur UCAS predicted up to A*A*A you should have a high chance of an interview... 75% do get one. by then you can just concentrate on interview techniques and after that if u get an offer just WORK WORK WORK. I mean 4-5 hours after school each day, working 9-5 on weekends studying, doing every past paper known like 5 times...if I actually get an offer from emmanuel I will have no free time from january to the end of june GLADLY

I’ve already been told I’ll be predicted A*A*A* based off of my year 12 mocks and running averages from topic tests. Still petrified because I know a lot of the people applying will be some of the smartest in the country.

@sososnake if they consider you as smart enough for cambridge, they'll accept you. dont think of the others, they can only do so much... if you're not in a private school for example then they will take that into account!

I’m just stressing because I’ve done 0 BMAT or interview preparation and I’m barely halfway through my personal statement and I also have 3 A levels to worry about. The only thing I’ve done so far is my ucat :/

Ps. Quote my messages to give me a notification

yeah me neither! I'm now going to use all the days I have half days at school to do some UCAT prep, and BMAT past papers on the weekends. just prep your week, work hard, have cambridge as that vision, and hopefully then through dedication over the next few weeks you'll do fine! (also, do interview prep once you actually get an interview)

When is your ucat? If you need help at all I’ve done mine so I can tell you how I prepared and how the real thing compares to practice tests.

Hopefully we’ll both do fine 😁, however you usually find out about interviews mid November and they start in December so I’m going to start preparation earlier, probably once I’ve sent my application off on October 15th.
