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
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.”)
AQA English lit, and my books are Macbeth, Jekyll + Hyde, Love + Relationships poetry (and possibly Inspector calls unless I can drop it due to COVID)
AQA English lang
triple science AQA
I haven't got my predicted grades yet, but my minimum targets are all like 7-8s
I have no idea what I want to do for 6th Form/in the future in general
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)
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.
