sequenceii's escape from mediocrity at AS (and maybe A2)
Hello everyone. I recently received my GCSE results and wasn't especially pleased. I managed to hold some crazy high expectations without even revising properly. For some subjects I didn't even learn the content until the night before. I understand at AS and A2 this must definitely change.
I didn't do as good as I could have, which may hamper my ability of getting into Oxbridge, but it's the past now. I went to quite a terrible school where, despite not taking them seriously, managed to get the second best GCSEs at the school!
So, these two years I'll give it my all and see what I can achieve. Of course I would love to get A*A*A* at the end of these two years, but I think it's best to be realistic and take it one step at a time. I won't update too often as I'm terrible with stuff like this, but thank you for reading nonetheless!Spoiler:ShowAS Levels:
I moved 6th forms and I've decided to study Maths, Computer Science, Chemistry, and Physics. All of these subjects seem quite difficult, but they open doors for me, since I don't have a clue regarding what I want to do at university. Of course the AS target is AAAA, but I don't know the true level of work yet so maybe my expectations and targets will become more realistic later on.
What I achieved at GCSE:
English Language - A*
English Literature - A
IT - Dist*
Maths - A
Chemistry - A
Biology - A*
History - A
Computing - A*
Spanish - A
Geography - A*
Physics - A*
So, 6A*s and 5As. I know they're not terrible grades, but by TSR standards, they're not the best. It's a little painful because with Maths, Spanish, and History I was very close to an A*. However, I don't really mind too much!
