Two more weeks. 11 more exams (7 of which are this week and they are all biggies, who the hell scheduled this?)

And then no more school uniform ever again, so today we did a bit of charity shopping to boost DD2's wardrobe. She is currently revising maths.

Iambuffy Sat 01-Jun-19 17:51:38

12 more to go here....

Strewth, I'll be glad when it's all over...then the waiting begins!!

Checking in grin

DeRigueurMortis Sat 01-Jun-19 18:48:03

Sorry just to follow up a comment on the previous thread.....

It is a lovely thread grin

I was a bit of a lurker initially because I was worried it might end up a bit "competitive" iyswim.

As it is it's been a lovely and supportive place to chat/share/offload and is like to thank everyone involved for making it that way wine

Just wanted to say onaroll how lovely your DS is planning that surprise for DD - you should be very proud.

I will be spending the night biting my nails and shouting at the tv as I watch the champions league final. If I'm on here a great deal you can surmise its not going well for me! grin

DeRigueurMortis Sat 01-Jun-19 18:49:39

Doh - well that's me failing English Language grin

What I meant to say was: "I'd like to thank"

Iambuffy Sat 01-Jun-19 19:04:01

I thought I posted on the other thread but obv not...
How lovely onaroll what a fabulous lad you have there x
Agree it's a lovely thread.
This is such a pivotal time for our kids and it's so nice to have somewhere to "offload" our worries, frustrations and difficulties.

Ooh I’ve found you again!

I’m not entirely sure how Monday is going to go

Dd’s body isn’t used to actually functioning before midday 😳

Bigearringsbigsmile Sat 01-Jun-19 20:12:23

My ds has 9 exams left and after a super start I think he's losing his mojo.

My other ds is mid a levels and it's all horrendous quite frankly!

Greeborising Sat 01-Jun-19 20:29:16

Yeah 9 to go here Big

I feel like we’re over the worst tho

Iambuffy Sat 01-Jun-19 20:32:29

Ds has just finished history.

A 16 mark question.on hereward the wake.

Rather him than me!

myrtleWilson Sat 01-Jun-19 22:23:17

I wasn't here tonight because we WON!!!!!

(sorry normal GCSE service resumed tomorrow!)

Oh dear God dd asked me to test her for history and it was AWFUL! Panicking now. I feel she hasn't revised right, only ever reading through things, and too easily distracted, but she never wanted any advice or guidance, just kicked off when I tried.
Now it's apparently my fault for not asking the right questions when I literally took them from the revision booklets given to her by school...
Aaaaargh and it's too late to fix now 😩

avenueq Sat 01-Jun-19 22:50:18

Having said that, the amount of topic for just one topic seems completely insane shockconfusedsad

Greeborising Sat 01-Jun-19 22:51:33

I think history GCSE is officially ‘arse’

Greeborising Sat 01-Jun-19 23:03:36

We’ve got this far in a calm determination but history is turning dd into an absolute wreck 🙁

avenueq Sat 01-Jun-19 23:06:19

Dd wants to take history for A level 😩
