Hey. My name is Sara and this is my grow your grades blog.
I'm in year 12, and I am studying A Level Maths, Chemistry and Physics and I am doing an As in Biology.

My GCSE Results: 1A* and 9A's

Why I want to get four A*s:
At GCSE I really wanted to get 10 A*s but as you can see I didn't manage it, so I'm determined to get the grades that I want this year.

How I'm doing so far:
To be honest, I haven't gotten of to the best start at AS, my grades so far are...

Maths: Core - C
Stats - E

Biology: B

Chemistry: E

Physics: We haven't had a test yet

Due to some of these results, I am not greatly motivated to continue studying, however hopefully this Grow your grades blog will motivate to do so.
I'll be trying to update this blog at the end of every day with a review of how the day has gone

I'm going into year 12 next year and, apart from biology, I will be choosing the same subjects as you. I have a feeling I will probably also get the same results as you at the start but, as long as you keep at it and you enjoy it, those results should gradually go up. You can do it! (and me too hopefully)

So today I completed all the tasks that I set myself, however I would say I didn't do them very efficiently as there was a lot of procrastination.
Tomorrows's plan is going to be more timetabled to avoid me getting distracted while doing my work.

Hey, nice GCSE results and good luck for A-levels!
Keep working hard, everyone starts off with a bad grade. I started off with an E in economics, just relax and keep working. Those grades will grow, trust me .

Hey
So today I've spent most of the day making notes for all of my subjects as I haven't updated them for a while now.
Here's a pic of some of the maths notes I made.

I'm gonna spend around an hour doing some maths revision for a test I've got this week and then that will be it for today.

Let me know how your getting on
