    Default I'm finished with my GCSEs!

    I am finished completely.
    Here are some of my papers for this year; You probably can't see too well from this angle, but that is one heck of a lot of trees!


    Now on to the International Bacchaloreate next year; more than twice the work and more than twice as hard.

    I am also finished. Had my last exam on Tuesday, which was a good laugh. Someone in the back of the room kept whistling Johnny Cash tunes, the invigilators were going crazy trying to figure out who it was.

    Anyway, onward ho with my life. Time to get a job.

    Lol, it can be funny when that happens. This year the only hiccup we had was this crazy old woman taking Law (like me), and she refused to stop writing and give in her paper at the end of the exam. She is honestly one of the weirdest people; she is always drinking vodka in lessons and wears a sleeping bag for a coat. This is her sixth year trying to get the Law AS Level.

    I used to know someone like that...peculiar people, but nice if you get to know them.

    So what are your plans for the future? Further education or what?

    Well; the IB (http://www.ibo.org/) which is a highly respected alternative to A-levels which the UK is switching to soon, at this school. And then after that, on to University hopefully, and after that, the army (hopefully) and then on to a civilian career such as law.

    Sounds fun. I'm going to Australia in November, so until then i'm just going to be working low paid jobs and enjoying the time i have left here.

    Drink, drink and more drink, methinks.

    Hmm i finished my AS levels recently and am rewarded with more school the injustice. My main memories of my exams were of the chavs in my school looking befuddled and confused and also asking me for a pen during the exam then falling asleep hmm they seemed to disappear after GCSE's.

    Congratulations, Lorenzo. That is a summa opus worthy of respect. Education hasn't gotten any easier over the years, and I respect your tenacity at sticking to it. You should be quite proud of your accomplishment. Good luck at Uni!

    And about the IB, I'd have to say it's not actually that difficult to do well in. My school offers it and it is exactly the same as the NSW HSC. I compare with friends and we have the same topics and workloads, except they have the Extended Essay and TOK.



    Oh yeah, they all whinge about the English topics and TOK, so be wary of them.

    Slow response, but a mate of mine finished last year got 42 out of 45 and put in a solid effort and time.
    Another didn't and still managed to get 38, ().

    Seriously, good luck GCSE's are ok, you can blag getting Cs and Bs with no revision...

    although why pay thousands of pounds to do an IB course (at a second-rate rugby school..i joke of course haha) when you can get a perfectly good As/A2 level course for free is beyond me

    ah well good luck my fellow manxman!
    When I was a child
    I caught a fleeting glimpse
    Out of the corner of my eye.
    I turned to look but it was gone
    I cannot put my finger on it now
    The child is grown,
    The dream is gone.
    I have become comfortably numb...
