So first up, tell us a bit about yourself!

A few starters could be:

1) What GCSE's are you taking (along with the exam board)?
2) What are your predicted grades?
3) What grades do you hope to get?
4) Any competitions/extras you're doing this year?
5) What career would you like to have?
6) What degree would you like to study at university?
7) What university would you like to go to?
8) And finally, what are your favourite/most effective revision techniques?

Maths - AQA - Predicted 6C - Current 5C
English - AQA - Predicted 5B - Current 4A
Combined Science - AQA - Predicted 6-5 - Current 7-7 (Individually I got 9-9 for Biology, 8-8 for Chemistry and 5-5 for Physics
Geography - AQA - Predicted 6C - Current 7B
History - AQA - Predicted 6C - Current 7C
Psychology - AQA - Predicted 5B - Current 4C
DT Systems - AQA - Predicted 6C - Current 4A

Honestly I'd be happy with 8+ in all of my subjects with (hopefully) all 9 in science.

Career wise I'll hopefully be joining the Royal Navy as a Medical Officer (if I get into a med school and complete it). Degree = Medicine

University, perhaps Cambridge or Imperial College however I like the prospect of going to Stanford in California.

My most favourite/effective revision technique is using Anki Flashcards for science (started them like last week, and they've been beneficial). For maths I'd recommend using Dr Frost or Hegarty Maths (if your school has subscriptions to it), Geography just listen to the news etc, History I'd watch Simple History.


I should add that I done the RS GCSE Short Course this year (but haven't got my results)
