Hello you lovely people!
It is that time of year again where I document the trials and tribulations of a student going through the yearly exams at a British comprehensive school.
However, this year there is a twist, as not only is this my first year of A-level exams (AS CLUB WHOOP), but because of the pandemic, the WJEC (Welsh exam board) have once again cancelled our exams *sad violin music 🎻 *.
Instead, they have informed out teachers that we have to sit a variety of “assessments” (which are pretty much just small scale exams – don’t even get me started).
So, I thought I’d take you along with me for my experience of exams-that-aren’t-actually-exams.
This post is going to comprise of my first four exams *sorry assessments* (which take place over a two week period) and the next post will be of the last three which take place over a two week period, 3 weeks from now.
This year, I’ve got two biology test, 2 chemistry tests, 2 maths tests (mechanics and pure) and a drama written test.
And, as always, you can view the other segments of my exam diary here 🙂
Anywho, without further ado, let’s start the tests!Read the rest of this entry →
