I have already done my health and social care and my speaking and listening exam. I’ve got a distinction on my speaking and listening but I’ve not yet got my results for health and social care but I’ve always got a distinction on mocks.
I’m not sure whether I want to go to college or 6th form.
I would like to go to Leeds university and I’m not sure what career I want as I feel I have lots of different interests.
I’m quite nervous but I’m excited to see what the future holds.
Year 10 was good for me, I got grades in mocks that i had never gotten before and I ended the year on 100% which I was really quite proud of.
My hobbies are playing guitar, playing piano, singing, writing songs and producing them, art, editing, ofc watching Netflix, writing and reading.
My favourite subject is English
My least favourite subject is business
My favourite way to revise is through mind maps or flash cards or booklets
