weird that, innit?
DOUBLE A STAR FOR ME.
I am the king of science.
Plus it was back in the day when GCSEs weren't really easy.
No A*s for the first five or six years of GCSEs. They are only a recentish A level thing too.
A*s were a thing.
Therefore I am the first (and reigning) king of science.
Double D (like with dem titties)
see above: I'll outscience you like fucking Brian teeth
so I am an expert in my field.
I would get the job instead of you.
to create a maze of DEADLY TEST TUBES through which you could not reach me
to fucking kill you
surely the slowest most painful death imaginable. Just lying there waiting for your pH to reach that fatal level, one drop at a time.
I know a totally average amount of science probably
think I underperformed in general. wasn't in the best frame o' mind though
Duumvirate it is
so I could do art AND drama, meant I had to go in the class with all the numbnuts
got A obvs
Who needs 'em?
What a weird system. Like, two-thirds of a GCSE for biology, chemistry and physics but all wrapped up together.
Three a*s, natch.
two a*s, natch
I had a couple of As bringing down the average.
There was other stuff
Short course welsh yielded a C (compulsory as you probably remember?)
All a complete sham of course, school doesn't matter.
No idea how, my Welsh is now literally reduced to "Hello, how are you, I am tired, why, I watched television last night, my favourite television programme is the Simpsons, I agree/disagree."
Not entirely useful
I mean, useful in instance. Barely.
I am the mountain of [...]???
It means go/going
just checked it's mynydd
chemistry teacher was a charlatan, clearly
biology is a disgusting science for weirdos
made the minimum required effort at all times
so I look extra cool
and then AD at A level.
I was so average at everything I did at school
Loved science (in 2/3 GCSE segments) but loathed the exams. Too many trick questions and real-life-application/common sense-based nonsense. I prefer science when it's boring and complicated.
The double science GCSE I did was a terrible set up for A-Level. It's better to do a full GCSE in Physics if you wanted to do it at A-Level.
BBB - what an absolute penoid I was
doing 10+ subjects at once was awful. how can you concentrate on so many different things at once?? especially if you hate core ones like maths and science. so much easier to do in-depth study on a few subjects you're interested in/good at.
Is almost non-existent, whereas A level you're expected to understand some things and not just rote learn them.
School though, innit, it's all dead easy.
that's probably why I found GCSEs easier, cos I enjoyed them all and there was a lot of variety.
Whereas in A-Level you tend to pick subjects you end up fucking hating, there's more of it to study, it's a lot more difficult and the final exam is usually a cunt too (especially Maths).
If you don't pick the right A-Levels you're fucked, whereas in GCSE it doesn't really matter if you do badly in a couple of subjects.
The actual science was pretty simple so we spent all the time blowing things up, setting fire to things and people and playing horrible practical jokes on eachother.
Only three people got to do triple science in my year, I was told I narrowly missed out because I was bad at chemistry. Was really good at biology, got an almost perfect score in my mocks, because it is basically just remembering how stuff works which I'm pretty good at. BB overall though so I guess I was bad at physics too.
to 'Double Award' GCSE Science (always assumed it was the standard, albeit strangely worded, in hindsight).
This means I have gained an extra GCSE that I've been omitting from my CV for about 18 years. Bonus.
