Mine was fine but they have really annoying rules. For example we're not allowed to go to the toilet during breaks or luccnh - we have to go during lesson time, so we miss our learning. I mean, i understand why ofc, but still...

that’s good to hear, I started a new school for year 10, and obviously that’s an awkward situation in usual circumstances but because of Covid it was especially messy ~

The fact that it’s an all girls grammar school didn’t help matters as well lol >.<

In my school, each year group has been allocated one building, and we are not allowed to leave it or interact with other year groups ~

The teachers have a barrier separating them from us and are all wearing face masks. They are not allowed to touch our class work books and we work on laptops now (or some of us do)

It’s a strange experience but I do like the school, and at least i don’t have to waste time learning my way around the whole school >.<

Is it just me who has received quite a bit of homework already ?

we don't have homework yet. Our teachers said there's going to be a limited amount during the first 2 weeks of school. KS3 will have none, whilst yr10s would have a small amount since we have a lot to achieve this year.

Hi, I'm not a year 10 and I only made a single post in the year 9 thread, but here comes my spontaneous Year 10 advice free of charge:

Year 10 involves a lot of hormones. You're growing a lot this year. Maybe Lewis from your Maths class fancies you. Maybe you're not friends with Louise any more because she blanked you on Snapchat. Who knows? :iiam:

However, at some point you are going to need to remember and recall the things you have learnt this year. That time will come in the summer of 2022 in an exam hall on a warm afternoon, but from now: things start to count. :afraid:

How can you best make use of your time?
- Attendance. Not feeling too well? Have 2 paracetamol and come into school anyway. Avoid the curry at lunch and you'll be fine. You'll be sorry if your exercise books is missing bits of information when you come to reading them back for revision next year.

- Keep everything. Don't throw away any worksheets, booklets, textbook photocopies, exercise books. Keep it all and keep it tidy. This year is about getting some knowledge - including in physical form.

- Have fun. Despite all the scary words in this post this is still not the big crunch time yet. Stay relaxed, get into yoga, go swimming, spent time with your friends (always wear protection).

- Keep calm. Now is not the time to have a massive row with a teacher for confiscating your phone or your earrings (boys). Now is the time to show your maturity, breathe a little and rise above the situation. You're better than that.

Give it some beans everyone. :happy2:
this is what i needed
thanks

Hey dudes,
Sorry I’m kinda late ( got a bit caught up with school and stuff) but anyway...

I hope everyone’s finding school ok! Everything’s changed so much but I guess a fresh start is good

So for GCSE I’m taking (drumroll please, haha jk)...

WJEC EDUQAS English Lit & Lang (doing Ozymandias at the moment)
Edexcel Maths
OCR Gateway Sciences (higher)
OCR Food Prep and Nutrition (really fun actually)
Edexcel Geography B (Haven’t has a lesson yet!)
AQA German ( we got a new teacher and she’s really nice)
AQA Art Textiles (so fun!!)

And we have to do PE, Philosophy (basically RE) and PSHE compulsorily.

My strengths are defo English and Biology but I’m terrible at Maths and Chemistry (oh no)

My hobbies are baking, writing and reading, I guess?! I’m also a massive fan of Illenium...

Anyway, that’s it I think! I hope we can help each other out this year! Bye!!

Hi! I'm Vilas, and I'm going into Year 10 in 3 days!!! (oof)
My hobbies include playing the piano (I'm in Grade 5) and I love to learn. I live in Wales so grades here are kinda different - here we have the A*-G system. I also use the WJEC board for all subjects.

Subjects I'm taking:
Compulsory:-
WJEC GCSE English Language
WJEC GCSE English Literature
WJEC GCSE Mathematics
WJEC GCSE Maths-Numeracy
WJEC GCSE Biology
WJEC GCSE Chemistry
WJEC GCSE Physics
WJEC GCSE Welsh 2nd Language
WJEC GCSE Religious Studies
WJEC GCSE Skills Challenge Certificate (like E-Bacc in England but here we call it Welsh Bacc)
Options:-
WJEC GCSE Geography
WJEC GCSE German
WJEC GCSE Music

Favourite Subject: Maths (definitely)
Least Favourite Subject: Probs P.E./History (even though I haven't picked them for my options)

Predicted Grades: I haven't been predicted any grades as we haven't done much GCSE work yet. But the grades I am hoping to get are As and A*s.

Favourite Way to Revise: Over the summer holidays I have been searching long and hard for the best study/revision techniques. I've watched UnJaded Jade, Eve Bennett and Lucreziachloe. But I came across a particular channel called Ali Abdaal and found there that according to numerous studies, the best revision techniques are (1) Active Recall - testing yourself and (2) Spaced Repetition - testing yourself over a period of time. He talks about this in a lot of his videos and he shows how he uses Google Sheets to test himself and as a retrospective revision timetable. You should all check out his channel.

My Future Dream Job: I'm aspiring to go to Oxbridge and study medicine there. I'm not too sure what speciality I want to dive in yet though.

Thoughts about Year 9: I can't believe I've missed half of Year 9! It was quite an amazing year to be honest, as I made a lot more friends and participated in DofE Bronze which was so fun, even though we never got to do the expedition (because of the pandemic).

Thoughts about starting Year 10: I kinda feel nervous as I'm starting GCSE, but I can't wait to meet all my friends again. Also I'm looking forward to be dropping some subjects that I didn't enjoy (i.e. PE) but I feel slightly nervous as teachers have high expectations of me since last year.

Don't worry guys - hopefully we will make it to June 2022. Good luck everyone!
Hello
We didn’t do the expedition for DofE either, which is a shame.

Anyway I came here to ask about the active recall thing. I tried it out during the summer holidays but I couldn’t find a routine that worked for me...
How are you using these methods?? Thanks, bye

hey to do active recall efficiently, you should be recalling after every mid-topic, or after every topic. Maybe even after a single lesson. It doesn't matter, as you should be doing it often - it does help, trust me. I'm in year 10 btw
