Good luck to all the other students and parents. I keep saying to mine, just do your best whatever that may be. GCSEís arenít the be all and end all are they, even though it probably seems like it at the time.
Exactly! Iím sure they only put so much pressure on for the school results .

Good luck to your pair, bless you!

Iíve got year 6 sats and GCSEs starting on Monday... Iím going to be in a lot of wine next week.

My eldest hasnít revised enough for GCSEs so Iíve decided heís old enough and come August he canít turn back time if it goes belly up. Although his mocks have come out ok with lack of revision. His only weak area is English and heís been having a tutor for a few weeks now so has no option but to keep doing practice papers

The youngest is a perfectionist and has already made himself ill doing all the practice sats, heís getting almost full marks in them so Iíve told him he can chill as he will do excellent and I wouldnít know if anyone that got all the questions right and that he will do amazingly anyway.

Roll on 14 June when itís all over

My daughter starts on Monday as she is doing RE. She had her Spanish speaking last week and was extremely pleased with the way it went.

She seems to be quite relaxed at the minute, things might change come Sunday night

Iíve got twins doing exactly the same subjects so potential for lots of rivalry but luckily they are seeing it as an opportunity to have a built in revision buddy.
They are fairly calm but Iím panicking as art coursework and exam prep has taken up so much time. We blasted it over the weekend though so itís now all done, 10 hour art exam was last week so now to focus totally on other subjects.

They have 23 exams each starting next Monday and finishing on the 14th June.

Iím between jobs at the moment, though I am doing supply work and seem to have been nominated as revision organiser. Found lots of good resources and keep trying to keep them on track.
Iím doing lots of baking to provide snacks, stops me stressing too much!
Good luck to all the teens and parents, Iíll be so glad when itís over!

DD has French speaking tomorrow and has already done the performance parts of Music and Dance. She is not at all stressed, which I am pleased about in some respects as a lot of her friends (and their parents!) are putting themselves under unbearable pressure, but I do think a bit of adrenaline stress can help sometimes. She has done her revision and will do her best, which is all anybody can ask for. I will be glad when it is all over. She is my youngest, so I'll never have to go through it again.

My son has hardly done any either aside from after school and I am sick of nagging so now itís down to him . He did fairly well in mocks without revision so feels he will be fine which was the exact thing I didnít want to happen.

We discovered Mathsgenie website today and they do predicted papers for Maths - higher and foundation if it is of any use to anyone. My daughter is working through the revision guides on the website as well and found them very helpful.

Her reward for doing the best she can in these GCSEs is a trip to Miami on the 16th June

She is not very academic but has spent a lot of hours revising so whatever results she gets I wonít be able to say she hasnít tried

Quite a stressed household here at the moment
My poor DD had to sit one part of art on her own as she had a big Cricket match,

OP iím Fine thanks for asking lol DD is fine, little and often is our plan and ever extra lesson school offer
