Back To School Fears, Our Stories
Going back to school has become a normal part of my life for the past 11 years, but now it's my final GCSE year and everything feels different.
I know the exams are drawing closer and closer everyday, and Year 11 means having to think about 6th form, part time jobs and leaving friends, as well as the pressures of revision and coursework.
I'm really looking forward to leaving school because it will give me the chance to meet new people, and work in my own way, rather than under strict instructions from teachers. Unfortunately I have to get through all my exams first!
I feel quite confident with most of my subjects (at the moment anyway!), because I know that if I revise properly I should be OK. The exam I am most worried about is my Maths GCSE. I don't feel particularly confident in my mathematical abilities, but my teacher does, and therefore has predicted me an A - HELP!
My parents are expecting me to work really hard this year, which I am quite happy to do as long as I get some time to myself, but I'm a bit worried about letting them down. I don't know what this year will bring, but I'm hoping after I've given in all my coursework, and finished all my exams I'll have lots of time to relax before I have to collect my results.
