How I Missed my GCSE exam

Picture the scene. I was in year 11 doing the most important exams of my life thus far. My absolute worst subject was chemistry, I was horrific at it.

Though I say so myself, we’re both pretty expert at long distance relationships at this point and hopefully my tips on how to make it work will help at least some of you!
