BRINGING CORPUS TO LIFE.

HI





'Tis I, CorpusLuteum.
I intend on getting into university at some point. Currently, I'm an AS student. It would very much appeal to me to study Literature, maybe English or who knows, might get a bit exotic and go for another language...





(GYG) I'll get more time to personalise this but I really wanna just do it so i can keep myself on track. ))))

  1. Another thread I made about Why you should study English Literature?It didn't prove very successful but it got me thinking.

  1. (Original post by PQ)
    For English Lit admissions staff are looking for academic extra curriculars. Basically reading. Read outside your studies. Read a broad range of material. Different genres. Different time periods. Keep a reading diary with some notes and thoughts about what you’ve read. Other things you can do include theatre visits, watching/listening to different adaptations of books. Reading poetry. Writing. Poetry slams. Follow your interests in your own time and not just what your school organises.
    From Thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4983468
  2. What Should I write in my English Literature Personal Statement? Great Article BTW!!





:cookie:BOOK LOG: (Outside of curriculum):cookie:

Spoiler:
Show
  • 'The Picture of Dorian Grey' By Oscar Wilde
  • 'The Idiot' By Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Books I probably won't finish for sure, but are useful to dip into:
  • 'The Short Oxford History of English Literature' (It's actually really long...)


































Have I got too much on my plate? Only time will tell!!!

Lets-i-go!

Love,
CorpusLuteum

Nah it wasn’t that stalker don’t you worry! :lol:

Once you’ve picked a clear topic spend a considerable amount time gathering research and putting a plan in place so you feel prepared to get started. EPQ sounds like a huge task so split it down in to smaller tasks to make it seem more manageable! Good luck!!!!

Hola,
How doth ye????
I hope to get back on track before Christmas!!
Code:
ENGLISH:
I've so many homework essays... well, a couple, or three to catch up on which is extreeeeemely lamentable! 
Additionally, I've homework due mid-week which is currently no where near done. Currently in need of divine intervention, hah. 
Code:
ART: 
Sometimes I wonder whether I am even actually doing an art a-level, I find myself so occupied with my other subjects I rarely spend any time outside of school doing Art. 
If I get a chance to stick to my new timetable I'll be doing 2 hours extra at least after school. Hmmmm, where shall I find time for the other 2 hours. 
Code:
FILM:
Bless this A-level, I find it dead easy watching films. *knocks on wood* 
Although script-writing is absolutely strenuous! :eek3::eek3::eek3::eek3: Need to get homework done at set times in my schedule so I can commence with weekly revision. 
Code:
MATH:
:afraid::afraid::afraid:
I've done absolutely no prep for my January exam, and I feel anxious, lord knows only how I'll pass it even. 
 :afraid::afraid::afraid:
Code:
EPQ::unimpressed:
What the hell EPQ can you please explain to me why I can't find a literature article for tomorrow!!! It's absolutely dire that I've not found an article, I should've seriously asked the teacher for help today. My bad.  :(
Well, that's a wrap of the past two weeks. I'm still trying to get myself on track. It's super demanding doing so many things at once.
Although, the good news is, I did start reading :snow:'The Picture of Dorian Grey' By Oscar Wilde. :snow: It's immensely intriguing.

:flowers: New Words::flowers:
  1. Lamentable - (of an event, action, attitude or circumstance) very bad; unfortunate; deplorable.
  2. Strenuous - requiring great effort or exertion.
  3. Dire - Extremely serious or urgent; terrible.

That's all methinks!
Shall update fortnightly.

Woah woah what?! I presume you mean you'd have to retake the mock right? Because that wouldn't be the absolute end of the world. I think that is a little harsh on students predicted straight A's however. I'm predicted that but I only achieved AAC on my mocks and I was ok with that.

Good luck with English! Sadly I'm not qualified enough to give you English advice, I'm sure you're much better than me!

IT'S FINALLY THE HOLIDAYS!!!! Brilliaaant. :horns::horns:

:heart:I feel prepared to study, especially after seeking the advice of these amazing TED talks::heart:

I'll start this post by saying, this clearly isn't a fortnightly-post-business. Let's fill you in with Subject Specifics.
(I know it doesn't sound very specific, but I will fill this in with the specific things I do over the course of the next two weeks.)

:crossedf::crossedf::crossedf:ENGLISH LITERATURE: :crossedf::crossedf::crossedf:
Revision will consist of: (This is totally a checklist)
  1. Linking both texts I am sitting an exam on
  2. Completing Theme sheets because the teacher dropped hints that our exam will be theme based#
  3. Writing Essays for Themed questions
  4. Revising Unseen Prose Time Periods
  5. Attempting some more Unseen prose style questions.


MATHEMATICS:
Wowowow -- How to revise:
  1. Revise Said topics which I have yet to know lol im skrewed :bawling::bawling:
  2. Do Topical Past Exam Questions... Probably from ExamSolutions.com -- Got any other Resources??

FILM STUDIES:
How can be tested on 3 films, oh my life.
  1. Make/Finish Resources on specific Scenes AND Representation
  2. Practise Timed condition essay writing
  3. Go over Film Techniques/Jargon blah blah blah:hifro:

ART:
Easy peasy:hoppy: I've already done quite a lot of this because I'm forever doing art to distract myself
  1. Print off Theme Pictures
  2. Finish Mind Map with ideas around topic
  3. Do Topical Observational
  4. Do Artist Research
  5. Maybe look at Exhibitions you could go to in the new year?? There's the Jane Austen £10 note one...

EPQ:
Well Well Well WELLL
  1. Read around your topic of Interest
  2. Actually Finish reading TPoDG
  3. Get some bloody help, lol.

  4. :afraid::afraid::afraid:

:groovy:I am doing this because I have an opportunity to succeed and I will take it !!:groovy:
:holly2:

Created a Christmas Revision Time-table On the GET REVISING site which will come in particularly handy this Christmas - Will write up specific tasks to get done in revision slots the night before. 'Tis a ritual.


:holly2:

MAJOR Side Note: I keep getting a stressed that I won't have enough time to do everything I need to do to succeed in my exams, but I am trying my best to push those thoughts away -- as advised by Carrie Green's TED talk. I can do it! Whatever I get done now will not go to waste in the long run!

:kart:

Am I supposed to tag you guys?? Sorry if you don't want to be tagged:

1. This is vague. Be specific about what you want to do so you have a specific foal to achieve it.:yep:
2. Don't revise for mocks.:nah: Revise for the real exams instead, they are more important x1000000
3. How many?
4. How?
5. How many? Isn't this the same as the one above?

Lol, the need! I am glad you were so kind as to give advice. I just realised I've been make big bold statements without actually having specific ideas about what I'll do which is very scary to think about.
Thanks for this! Smart tasks will probably be more productive, you're right!
Gosh ahhhhh, also thanks for your advice on EPQ; I still haven't got an argument which I know sounds dumb, I just can't find a point of particular debate in my topic area...
Gaahhhh, you're amazing!!

What's your EPQ on?:curious:
Well, It's an English Literature EPQ; I've chosen to look at the Aestheticism and Decadence movement i.e. books like The Picture of Dorian Gray; 'Art for Arts Sake'; Essayists like Oscar Wilde but also the Notions of men such as William Morris ...
It's all a bit jumbled up.
