My DD started her written GCSE's with Maths yesterday. She did her 10 hour art exam before easter and has done some stuff for her music and welsh. she was on a college course doing hair and beauty as one of her options and got the equivalent of 2 GCSE's in that (not sure of the grade yet but apparently she has done very well).

Shehas been stressed due to the amount of coursework needed for art and having had a lot of time off ill has been playing catch up.

She has been offered a conditional place at BIMM college in Manchester and has her heart set on it so i'm hoping and praying she has done enough to get the required grades.

Its such a stressful time for them.

Her reward for it it all is Prom on the 19th June followed by 17 nights in Florida flying out on 20th June (staying 14 nights on Anna Maria Island so full on relxation)

Good luck to all fellow GCSE dibbers !

My daughter did her extra maths one yesterday but she is not confident about that one and she wishes she had not signed up for it. The rest start on Monday and she has 20 to sit.
We have told her to do her best and what will be will be. I am confident she will pass everything, I do wish she would have knuckled down sooner to study (only just started) but it is what it is.
If she gets worked up or stressed her bloods go all over the place and makes her ill.
Good luck to everyone x x

Ahhh good luck to all. We had a History exam this morning (and Spanish speaking was last week). An accident on the A303 had a knock on effect on local traffic and it took almost an hour and half to get the 10 miles to school. DS made it by the skin of his teeth and seemed unaffected by it. Us parents were obviously wrecks!

It all starts full on next week. God know how hes going to cope with writing so much in one go. He will have a claw hand. One day he has 3 exams due to a clash. Maybe all the xboxing will have prepared him?!

My twin DD's had theirs in 2017, and are now gearing up for A levels in a couple of weeks. In 2017 we booked to fly out a few days after their last exam (as we have this year) so that gave them something nice to look forward to (plus flights a bit cheaper mid June!). All we have ever said to any of them is just try your hardest, that's all we ask.

Hello! Another frazzled GCSE mum here.
Ds as is first exam (computer science) on Monday, first of 21.
He as done so much revising but the anxiety for him is kicking in now. I have bought him some rescue remedies (herbal) which he says helps. He as is heart set on a Sheffield UTC college. Lots of beer will be drunk over the next few weeks. (Me not ds lol)

I can tell my son is on exam
leave, he has just been food shopping with me and my trolley 🛒 was about 60 more than normal 🙄 I was hoping he would go to school to revise as his lunch is paid for there 😬
