Technically, it hasn't yet. It hasn't been confirmed. If they do push it back, they'll push back the contingency day too.

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
Thanks!

I read somewhere that they might reduce the english literature curriculum for ya this year and we might be able to chose 2 out the 3 options (“All students will be assessed on a Shakespeare play but can choose questions from two of the three other sections - poetry, a 19th century novel and post-1914 British fiction or drama.”)

Alright time for my introduction - breathes

- Introduce yourself (your name, a bit about you, pronouns, etc)
Hi, I'm Faizan. Male. Live in London. Goes to a single-sex grammar school.

- What subjects are you taking this year? (be sure to include exam board)
English (both) - Edexcel
Maths - Edexcel
Triple Science - AQA
Computer Science - OCR
Food Preparation and Nutrition - AQA
Geography - OCR B
Spanish - Edexcel
I also did RS Edexcel B in year 10 and got an 8!

- What are your favourite/least favourite subjects?
I love Computer Science. I also enjoy food p&n and maths.
Pls, don't get me started on English. Omd. Awful.

- What are your current predicted grades?
I don't have predicted grades yet but I have some target grades which are a 9, 5 8s and 4 7s.

- What grades are you aiming to get this year? (if different from predicteds)
I'll be happy with all 7s except maths which I want an 8 in.

- What do you want to do as a career In the future? What are your dreams, your aspirations, your goals?
I want to study Computer Science at uni and do something related to it in the software industry, maybe software engineering or health informatics, idk yet.

- What are you thinking of taking for A Level/studying/working on post-16?
Maths, further maths, physics and computer science at A-Level

- How are you feeling about starting Year 11?
I really cannot wait longer to get back to school. Hopefully, a certain virus doesn't decide to stop me but we'll have to see.

- and now, anything about you! (fun facts, hobbies, or anything else you want to share!)

Uh... I like football, but I'm not very good at it. I support Liverpool (I'm not a glory hunter, I've been supporting since before SG did the slippy slippy).
I'm pretty nerdy tbh.
I like helping people. Ever since I've joined TSR I've always been answering peoples unanswered threads and only about a month ago I realised there is a role for that (Answer Heroes) so I'm currently applying.
I guess that's it!

Have a nice scroll :groovy:

Maybe it's because I rarely see you in the GCSE thread mainly in the chat threads especially on the Family of TSR one :laugh:

Hello there im meerkatkng (nice name)

I'm studying:
AQA maths
AQA combined science
AQA English language
AQA English literature (Macbeth inspector calls and i don't know the other 2 because I don't know what we will drop)
Edexcel history
Btec tech award enterprise, health and social and information technology

My predicted grades are meant to be 5 or 6.
I am really scared and annoyed because i hear all of you clever kids predicted 8s and 9s but my school barely gets 17% to get a grade 5 and above in English and maths. I need help. I come from a very bad school. I want to be able to achieve good grades like all of you guys. I want to aim for 7 8 9 grades. Inshalla i do well and inshalla you guys do well. Ameen.
