Hi everyone! Does anyone know of any competitons for Year 11 students or a website that lists the opportunities. And by competitons I mean maybe essay writing ones or anything else, basically super-cirrucular stuff because I'm interested in doing some sort of project for fun. I've done a bit of research online but a lot of them seem to be for Year 12 students so if anybody knows of any such oppurtunities for our Year pls lmk! :smile:


This is the main one I've heard about.
https://www.youngwriters.co.uk/competitions/all-ages/showcase-23
The subjects I'm taking are:

English Literature and Language (Edexcel)
Maths (Edexcel)
Triple Science (AQA)
Geography (Edexcel A)
French (Edexcel)
PE (OCR)
DT (AQA)

For English Lit I'm doing Inspector Calls, Macbeth and Jekyll and Hyde. Jekyll & Hyde is my struggling book but Macbeth is easy to understand for me. Inspector Calls is in the middle somewhat hard and easy at the same time. Aiming for 7+ hopefully and I'm definitely not excited for gcses but I'm excited to leave the school anyway. I just want it done and over with ( I hope everyone here will agree).

After y11, I want to do physics, maths, DT or probably Architecture for A-level. I'm not sure whether I want to go to sixth form or college but if its a good school I'll go.

Well good luck and hope everything runs smoothly for you xx

I do iGCSE CAIE: english lang & lit, maths, coordinated science (probably doing triple but my school doesn't offer it, so I'd have to self study), global perspectives, art, history and french foreign language.

My school does A*-G and I'm hoping for A*s for everything but art.

Hello Year Elevens :smile:

Just a quick message to say we've now got a directory of GCSE Study Groups available :smile:

These are subject-specific threads where you can chat with other students who are studying the same subjects as you, get some support, and offer help and friendly advice :biggrin: If there are any missing, feel free to create them and tag me in so I can add them to the directory.

Good luck with your final GCSE year!

There aren't that many tips; simply identify what you're trying to find and recall what formulae can find it.
