Chat Thread

:tsr:



It seems like only yesterday that we were in Year 12, writing personal statements, researching universities/apprenticeships, exploring careers and most importantly, preparing for exams.
:work:


So, whether you are doing an apprenticeship, going to university this September, already at university or taking a gap year, this thread is for you! Feel free to vent, ask questions, complain, moan or even share success on this thread!

We're all in this together!

Introduce yourself!
Hi everyone! I'm Abeer. ✌

What are your hobbies/interests?
Books, books, and books...
Medicine
Business
Writing/Journaling
Photography
Trying something new

What A-Levels/BTEC’s did you take? What were your results?
A-level Maths = A*
A-level Bio = A*
A-level Chem = A
A-level Phy = A*

Are you taking a gap year? If so, what are you doing during your gap year?
Yep! I'm actually doing multiple jobs rn. Turned 18 last month so practicing driving as well. Researching more about universities (because apparently someone ain't sure whether want to study medicine here or abroad. Plus, I want scholarship.). Practicing the new skills I'm aiming to learn/be better at, and educating myself more general about medicine.

What are your goals for this year?
God, I have quite A LOT. But top most would be: Being independent and a better person than I was last year. Achieving atleast 80% of my goals.

Got a GYG (Grow Your Grades) blog? Post a link!
Have been thinking to make one for a long time, but I don't think I'm making anytime soon so nope!

Well I'm by no means a fresher but I'm still an undergrad and year 12 really does not seem that long ago...

Intro: I'm Sinnoh, I'm about to go into my 3rd year of MSci Physics at Imperial.

Hobbies/interests: Classical guitar, classical music, history, quizzes.

A-levels: Sat them in 2019, did maths, further maths, physics and history.

Uni grades: 58.7% in 1st year, 61.8% in 2nd year

Goals: better grades (> 65%), get on the University Challenge team - 3rd time's the charm?

GYG: nah not this year. I think I'm done with it for good. But, here's my blogs for 1st year and 2nd year.

hi everyone! i'm elsie
i don't have too many hobbies, i spend a lot of time online but i enjoy going for a good cycle ride, sometimes a walk if the weather's nice, and i enjoy playing valorant with friends.

i took french and music a levels, as well music tech btec.
french - A
music - D
music tech - Di*

i'm headed to uni of hertfordshire to study music industry management in a couple of weeks, a 3 year course with an optional year abroad which i'm thinking of potentially doing, as long as i'm able to get the grades i need for it!

no gap year for me, so my goals for this year are just to make new friends, get to know everyone in my flat and the flats around mine, keep up with my coursework (i'm doing a course with no exams), and make sure i can try and keep up to the grades i would need for a year abroad!

It seems like only yesterday that we were in Year 12, writing personal statements, researching universities/apprenticeships, exploring careers and most importantly, preparing for exams.
:work:


So, whether you are doing an apprenticeship, going to university this September, already at university or taking a gap year, this thread is for you! Feel free to vent, ask questions, complain, moan or even share success on this thread!
:cyber:

We're all in this together!

Hi everyone! I am Michael Joseph Harrison

Looking at my phone and walking, Maths

A-Level Economics, A-Level Business and BTEC National and Extended Certificate in Applied Law. My results were EEMerit.

De Montfort University

Accounting and Finance BA Hons

Yes, kind of. I am doing a supported internship at Barnardo’s 4 days a week alongside an AAT course one day a week.

To become more independent

Haven’t got a GYG, as I am not sure whether I will or should do one

I decided in the end to do or make a GYG because 5hyl33n 5hyl33n thought I should make a GYG.

Here is the link to my GYG: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=7093698

For me, getting a first, or even a high 2:1, in a uni with 2:2 as the median is already an achievement in itself. My uni does not need to worry about grade inflation, as the median grade is always a 2:2 since the 1990s.
If you are below average in every module, you can only get a 3rd. A 2:1 means that you are above average in some subjects at least (most scores just on the average get you a B-, or 2.7 GPA, which is a high 2:2), and a first means you are significantly above average in all of your modules. Most other unis in HK often give out a bunch of 2:1s and firsts like those in the UK.

God, I have quite A LOT. But top most would be: Being independent and a better person than I was last year. Achieving atleast 80% of my goals.

Well I'm by no means a fresher but I'm still an undergrad and year 12 really does not seem that long ago...

Intro: I'm Sinnoh, I'm about to go into my 3rd year of MSci Physics at Imperial.

Hobbies/interests: Classical guitar, classical music, history, quizzes.

A-levels: Sat them in 2019, did maths, further maths, physics and history.

Uni grades: 58.7% in 1st year, 61.8% in 2nd year

Goals: better grades (> 65%), get on the University Challenge team - 3rd time's the charm?

GYG: nah not this year. I think I'm done with it for good. But, here's my blogs for 1st year and 2nd year.
Hello Sinnoh!

Good luck with your third year at Imperial. :yy: Those are fantastic 1st/2nd-year results and, I'm sure you will perform just as well or even better this year!
