Default GCSE vs Parkour

As you can tell, im enjoying making these 'vs' posts. Well

From the title, you can guess what this is going to be about.

Basically, does anyone have like a guide to fitting in revision and parkour?

I'm just going to train normally, and revise when I want.

I probably wont make a revision timetable.

You have to make the difference between what is useful and what is not in emergency situations. Then you'll know what is parkour and what is not. So if you do acrobatics things on the street with no other goal than showing off, please don't say it's parkour. Acrobatics existed long time ago before parkour.

i love parkour... but GCSE exams are very important and could effect the rest of your life and you dont want to muck THAT up. so i would probably suggest that sometimes revision has to come before training. hope this helps.

the fact that gcse's are literally a joke should come in here.

seriously, i did absolutely no revision, and it was easy as anything
never listened in class

basically, you get spoonfed the answers.

go enjoy your life.
train :]

Seriously...GCSE's mean pretty much nothing.
It's easy to get gcse's
the only two subjects that i didn't get A*-C grades in were the only two i revised for.

Once you get your Alevels or equivalent qualification you'll be wondering why you were so bothered about your GCSEs

i failed 3 of 10

tech - didn't bother working on practical
history - teacher lost my coursework
cida - passed one part, but didn't have time to do other, due to failing teacher.. got a C&U
whereas practically everyone else got UU

basically, you could ejaculate on a paper and get full marks.

Panther got no GCSE's , how ever he is now working his arse off at his current job.

GCSE's are only important on your CV where if there not there your pretty much off listed straight away, the only way to bypass such action is to Have some thing really unique rememberable and impressive on your CV to over shadow your lack of baisic education certificates.

Soooo , basically I recommend just grin through your gcse's, after you've got the minimal Education certificates then you can start thinking about arsing up your life he he

you got NO GCSE's?

seriously.. they're actually so easy

the mocks are harder..

E for mock in science
B in test

just, don't worry about it, don't get stressed, and don't listen to the teachers who say its the biggest thing ever.

basically.. you have been prepared for these tests for years.. trust me, they're easy
