Yes. There's a contingency day (29th June) which all Year 11s must be available until. GCSEs can be run all the way up to an including on the contingency day. If the lockdown doesn't end before that day or you miss a few because of time, you will get CAGs
thanx 😄

GYG?
It stands for Grow your Grades it happens every academic year (with this year's forum *hopefully* opening on the 24th August)

It's making a blog about documenting your journey from the beginning of your learning all the way through your exams and up to results day

More information here

I think I should kick this thread off with my introduction and icebreakers!

- My name is Emily (she/her)
- I'm taking three exams in the November exam series, which are Citizenship, Psychology and Sociology (I was due to take them this year, but as they were self taught, my centre could not give me a CAG), then I'm taking Triple Science, DT, French & History in the summer. I also took Computer Science in Year 9, and attained an 8. All AQA! (If you need any help with any of these subjects, especially CompSci and those I'm taking in November, I'm more than happy to provide it!
- I can't say I'm one for favourite and least favourite subjects, I enjoy studying Law extracurricularly and I'd say that's my true passion and the subject I enjoy most.
- My current predicted grades range from 7-9! Seven 9s, five 8s and a 7.
- I would LOVE to get all 8/9 grades, majority 9s would be lovely.
- In the future, I aspire to study Law at either Oxford or in London. I am working towards a career as a corporate solicitor in an international firm based in London, but I also have an interest in medical negligence law, so we'll see where it takes me once I'm able to study the subject in more depth!
- I'm honestly a little stuck on what I might like to do for A Level, but I'm thinking of Sociology, which is pretty much definite, along with other options I'm not so sure on and will have to see what my school offers next year (it's pretty small so changes a lot depending on cohort)!
- I'm a little apprehensive about starting Year 11. It's dawned on me just how short of a time it is until our actual exams. It's going to be quite a busy year and I'm a little nervous about how my November exams may interfere with mocks/other school work. I haven't been revising over the summer, and I know of many people who have been so that's certainly put me on edge! As well as the academic challenges, I am nervous about the return to school with COVID-19, as who knows what will happen and whether our exams might possibly reach the same fate that they have this year. If you're worried about going back, rest assured, you aren't alone! Feel free to reach out to me anytime.


I think that's everything! We can do this, Class of 2021!
Oh damnn oh no I was supposed to be sitting a GCSE this year too but I never got grades. Basically it's a complicated story, I'm not in a class for the subject but I did mocks, so does that mean I'll have to do the November exam series too? :ninja: or am I overthinking cause dear goodness I hope I am

I'd say they'd ask you to either take it in November or next year, I also did mocks but because I don't have a teacher they couldn't give a CAG I hope it's not the same for you!
