Hi there! I hope you do well in your mocks and that you are managing to revise! Luckily for me i'm just doing a biology GCSE, but i'm pretty scared about going onto a levels next year!

What GCSE's are you taking? What are you hoping to do after your GCSE's?

I have difficulties socialising also [so much so I dont want to anymore, disregarding online forums. I still like those.] and I like animals too. Particularly cats, love cats.
I also like Harry Potter..did you enjoy The Deathly Hallows part 1? I assume you've seen it, being a fan and a fan of films too >_>


Hi!
The strange thing about my dyscalculia is that it's quite severe yet none of my teachers ever picked up on it. They just assumed I couldn't be bothered or something! Whats your story with dyscalculia?
I understand how you feel about socialising. I find it quite hard work and tiring sometimes. My numerous bad experiences with it make me not want to bother trying too! But then the lonleyness sets in!
Yes! I did enjoy the deathly hallows part 1! It was very different to the other fims I think. I seem to have a slight obsession with Harry Potter haha! Snape being my favorite character for some strange reason. What did you think of the deathly hallowes part 1?


I was sent to have it diagnosed at College in 2009 but I was never given a set diagnosis..woman testing me just ignored it. I was set on the lowest percentile of mathematical ability and I'm working at key skills level 1 skill. It's horrible and I hate numbers. Adding is a pain, some numbers just escape me and I cant work out how to say numbers such as 210200 out loud [Cant really think of a good example for that..]. Had to sit in Waterstones and use my phone to add £16.99 and £6.99 together today. I also tend to forget about pence when it comes to money..and I better not get started on percentages and fractions.

I like to ramble, I think that's obvious >_>
Luckily I have a boyfriend who lives with me and also hates socialising, so I rarely get lonely these days. But I've found socialising on this forum the best experience I have had of socialising on a forum. I think that's because the people here understand, and I've found I can be my rambley geeky self without having to worry what people think.

Snape is brilliant. I'm a bit of a baddie fan though and I like Voldemort, he's definitely my favourite. I enjoyed the transition of book to film, definitely the best film so far. It worked so well, and I think they cut it into two at such a tasteful part. Was worried it would be at too much of an action part.
Oh god and Dobby, I cried at Dobby >_<

I have seen the new film. I liked it but not as much as the other films. My favourite character in the whole of the harry potter books/films has got to be serious black... who is dead :(

Hi! It's nice to meet you! If I was working in a library i'd be sitting, reading all day rather than working! :lol:


It's tempting to do that sometimes! I mainly reshelve books. I always have a full library card and a pile of books that I have ordered waiting to be collected.

there is two ways to become a police dog trainer
1st option- to start with normal dog training and work your way up. This is the option I hope to do
2nd option: to be in the police force for a couple of years but it hard to get into the police force as they over empolyed and not rectuiting!


Cool! I did my first diploma last year but I injured my back and had to have an operation so I had to finnish the course from home! I'm going down the A level route instead of a national diploma because of my back problems.
I can imagine it would be hard going through the police force! I like watching that "send in the dogs" programme on tv about police dogs! I watch most things animal related haha!
So do you have to do animal behaviour at university then?
Do you have to travel far to get to college? I used to have to go from Nottingham to Leicester which was really annoying! It used to take me 2 hours to get home some nights!


Sorry to hear that you injured your back. I also love 'send in the dogs'. I watch most programmes to do with the police. I love anything to do with the police. When I left school I wasnt sure if to have a career with animals or a Foresinc Sciencst, I may still study to do this career later on in life. I not sure if I have to do aniaml beahaviour at uni, Im going to get my ALS tutor (addtional learning support) to help me to find out. My college is in Canterbury which is about 45 minutes away from where I live so it not that bad.

The problem is, they don't always say in black and white that you have something. They tend to say you have symptoms of it. Which is really annoying! I'm doing level 1 maths at the moment too and I have a rediculously low percentile! I'm sure you do have dyscalculia because i'm sure you wouldn't be struggling so much if you didn't!

Haha! Don't worry about the rambling! We all like a good ramble! :P I have a great boyfriend too who has alot of symptoms of dyspraxia but he has had a diagnosis! I socialise with his friends because being around him makes me feel more confident. It's really great to talk on here with other like minded people!

I always like the baddies too! Even though in reality I always want to be the nicest possible person! I love Snape's voice! Well, Alan Rickman's voice. I had a seriously disturbing dream about Snape once, I wont share. *shudder* :oops: I actually didn't read the Harry Potter books - for some reason, I just couldn't get into her writing style. That's quite odd for me though because I love reading so much! And I love Harry Potter! Noooooooo, Dobby!!!! :cry:

Are you at college then?

Yes, I like watching some of the programmes about the police. I like justice!!! I think it's good to be intersted in more than one thing. Who says you have to have one job / career all of your life ... boring! I don't want to have the same job forever so i'll probably end up doing many more courses!

I'm only doing biology. I did alright in my other GCSEs when I was at school but later decided that I might want to do something biology related as a career! I'm doing an adult learning maths class too, thats just for personal improvement though! I want to do my A Levels nexts. I'm only going to do 3 subjects though because I don't want to take too much on! It's a toss up between english (of some sort!) biology, pyschology and sociology!

What are your plans after you've done your GCSE's?

Hello Jenna, welcome to DT. I'm Remus, I'm 18 and I'm mild dyspraxic (although it's unofficial, trying to get it sorted out). I live in Birmingham, West Midlands where I am currently training to be a zookeeper, I'm doing an HND in Animal Management. I have four cats and two fish and love all sorts of animals! I love books, movies, music, television especially TV series.

Hope you enjoy the boards!
