March. Mad March. The month when us yellow ties pick the dreaded GCSE’s (dun dun dunnn).
What if I have no idea what to pick!?!? Lots of you are going to be feeling like this right now, and some of you might be thinking of ways to not do them at all… Let me just clarify that WON’T happen!
We had an assembly about GCSE options, so you should know that we have a small card with not one, but TWO websites for us to use. Make good use of them. They wont give your computer a virus, I promise.
I want to pick a subject but I’m worried about the class/and or teacher, HELP!: Honestly, I would go for it. If you enjoy it and you are good at it- then do it! Nothing that small should stop you from achieving your dream career in the future, and if it does- and you’re still worried, then ask Mr Chopra (Again, he wont give your computer a virus.). I’m sure he will give you some good advice- much better than the advice you are reading right now.
What are the tests like?: Well firstly, they are not to be scared of. If you are scared (there will be some people who are!), then get some old papers and practice! The more practice you get now, the more you will be at ease when GCSE’s actually start! There will be those few who are completely inexperienced and panicked, but that’s simply because they weren’t prepared. I would suggest you don’t be that person.
Those are the most common questions to do with GCSE’s. But if you have more, feel free to pop by the year room (if they are not to busy dealing with bad behaviour) and I’m sure either member of staff there will be happy to help.
