Leavers day was super fun yesterday and I didn't really think about gcses at all so that was a nice break but now I need to lock in and focusss. Today is going ot be mostly RS (Islam and Christianity) for the paper tomorrow 😭 but I might also get a bit of biology done iif I have time as well.

Good luck to everyone for their exams xx

My hand is basically invincible. That’s 9 years of cello for you, essays are a breeze!
So first week of exams done
This week

RS paper 1 started ok then got worse and most of the 5+12 markers I did badly on so I'm expecting paper 2 to be carrying my grade 6/10

Biology paper 1 was amazing. Some of the questions were a bit odd and one of the 5 markers I've not realised that I messed up on but overall much better 8.5/10


Next week

english lit (pride and prejudice + much ado about nothing) expecting it to be 6.5/10 because Shakespeare.

Computing paper 1 expecting it to be 7.5/10 because last year it was atrocious

maths paper 1 expecting it to be 7/10 because I always mess up on non calculator the most basic calculations

RS paper 2 expecting 7/10 because I prefer themes and know more quotes

chemistry paper 1 expecting it to be 6.5/10 because its just so difficult and the topics and calculations 😭

geography paper 1 expecting it to be 7/10 because physical isn't too bad but the case studies are scary


Other

our exam actually started 10 minutes early today so I got to go home earlier

currently procrastinating chemsitry revision

GOOD LUCK to everyone who has exams next week and I hope everyone does amazinglyyy 🩶

3 tests
3 hours allotted per
2 parts per test (multiple choice/performance task)
but my tests are on the computer so that helps :smile:

good luck for your tests next week, i'm sure you'll do amazing, personally i think it's ok to procrastinate on fridays because you always have the weekend to catch up that's usually what i do lol :biggrin:
