Hey, I have issues with revision (falling asleep in the chair) so I decided to give myself a bigger motivator than just my timetable by posting this. I am going to post here every night, and I am going to try to revise 3 hours a day on weekdays and 6 on weekends, as opposed to before now which I have managed probably 1.5 on weekdays and 2-3 on weekends.
Current AS grades:
C1 : B (79 ums)
C2 : B (70 ums) RETAKE Went well
M1 : U(38 ums) RETAKE Went very well
COMP1 (90 UMS) RETAKE Went very well
COMP2 (61 UMS)
Unit 1N (75 ums)
Unit 2D (72 ums) Retake Went well
Predicted grades or received grades on modules being taken this year
C2 : A
M1 : B <-- focus
C3 : A <--- Got 62 in the mock in december, and got similar in papers I have been doing recently
C4 : C <-- focus
D1 : A Went meh
M2 : E <-- not needed so I will put in no effort went badly
Overall : B
HIS 2D : A
HIS 3B: B <--- Focus Went very well
HIS 4: I know I got equivalent to a A* in this, although not exact UMS
Overall : B/A
COMP 1 : A (lost marks last year for stupid reasons, and the practical is looking a lot easier based off the code)
COMP3 : B <-- focus
COMP4: Unknown (computing teacher said I would get below a C at one point, although I put in tons of effort towards the end and wrote like 200 pages of checked and hopefully good stuff, I would be irritated if I didn't get at least a B)
Overall : B
I want to study computer science at kent, and got an offer of BBB for that, so It is imperative to meet that since my choices were as such that I didn't anticipate the kent offer being so low, so my insurance is actually a higher requirement than firm.
The plan, as I have stated, is to revise for 3 hours on weekdays and 6 hours on weekends. Weekdays will either be History or Computing and Maths. Will try to spend 50% of that time on a paper/exam questions. Have a plan that I have had issues keeping to written up in excel.
Go nuts and post if you want! If somebody can help me with revising history would be good, as there are so few questions published by the exam board it's kinda hard to revise it in the same way as maths or computing, which has masses of papers.
Today I am going to read up on the Elizabethan period between 1558-1572 in G.R Elton's book England Under The Tudors, and translate it into notes which will eventually become a sporcle quiz.

Revised history further, wrote around 5 pages of notes. Wrote a quiz here http://www.sporcle.com/games/gigarap...1572-mega-quiz
Took around 3 1/2 hours, so I have met the quota. May do a C3 paper for the hell of it.

Have been very ill the last few days, hit 41 degrees. Managed to do half an M1 paper though and scored decently though.
Also got my official predicted grades: ACC.
My maths grade dropped from a B since I was focusing heavily on coursework last term, whereas I find computing mistifying.Last edited by TercioOfParma; 06-05-2016 at 19:10.

Did a A3 diagram on the fall of absolutism and made a quiz based on it http://www.sporcle.com/games/gigarap...utism-megaquiz
Solomon F C2 (68/75) (Kinda confused by the trapezium rule questions since they seem to mean different things in different papers with strips, and got it correct on this but not on C)
