    So I had started a study blog thing for grow your grades, but I didn't really update it and it would be fab if I was actually organised for Year 13.

    Last year my goal was to get AAAA, I ended up not taking an exam for History because it's linear and I'm just gonna take exam at the end of next year instead. It's ~seemingly~ meant to be less stressful haha. But in the end, I managed to get AAA for AS which I was not expecting at all - so the sky's the limit. I hope everyone got what they wanted on results day!

    The goal is a tad ambitious, but why not ya know, I always seem to underestimate myself so I've decided it's time to mix it up a bit. Hopefully I am able to motivate others along the way!

    AS English Literature (Edexcel): A
    AS Mathematics (OCR MEI): A
    AS Government and Politics (Edexcel): A

    GCSEs: 2 A*, 8 A's, 2 B's

    I'm *officially* currently taking all 4 subjects into A2, but I am pretty certain I am going to drop English Lit since I don't think I can improve on that grade haha, gotta keep it real. Oh and I'm taking on an EPQ as well which is going to be so much work eek! I'm going to get ahead of the game and start doing some EPQ reading etc tomorrow at the library.

    In terms of uni I'd really like to study a Politics degree, I initially wanted to do Maths but I'm not sure I could enjoy it for 3 years straight I'm really indecisive and so haven't really chosen what unis I want to apply to yet, but at the moment my thoughts are:

    Cambridge (A*AA) - (mostly bc of pushy parents, but I know my grades aren't really good enough)
    Warwick (AAA)
    Exeter (AAA)
    Nottingham (AAB)
    King's College London (AAA)
    Loughborough (ABB) - not sure yet, probs just a safe option
    LSE (AAA)

    Inserting an inspirational yet slightly cringy study quote, butttttt I need all the motivation I can get.

    Good luck!
