    It may be good to add in your current grades, but you could also do that in your blog!

    Hi. I want to get my physics grades up to an A*. I'm doing AS, but at my school an A* is a high A. I'm currently getting As in physics- I'd like this to be an A* by the end of the year.
    I'm doing maths AS and A2 this year. I'd like to get an A* in it. Currently I'm getting A/Bs in C3, so to get that up to an A would be great

    Hello!! I'm really hoping to get 'okay' grades in my subjects! (AS Levels) Right now, my target grades seem to be an unlit lamp at the end of the tunnel T^T (The subjects are very interesting but it's hard getting my mind around it)

    If anything,

    I would LOVE to have some revision advice for PSYCHOLOGY (Ahh, my weakest subject...) I find this subject the hardest to revise/study. (Aim... Method, Fiiindings... Wait, what? HOW DO I REMEMBER THIS)


    Thank you for reading!! And I hope you'll help me TwT (Please)
    Hello! With Psychology, the best thing to do is summarise all your notes, and practice answering essay and exam questions under timed conditions as timing is a big downfall for everyone.
    For your evaluation, to get into the top bands, always do P(point).E(evidence) E(explain).L(Link)>>>linking back to the theory is very important! Always link back!
    For AS, you can learn the General evaluation points: Methodological problems: lab, case study etc and know weaknesses and strengths of them as they can be used for mostly every theory
    Use specialised times like reductionist, gender bias, ethnocentric etc

    These methods got me A in AS, (88UMS in U1&2)
    Good luck
    Really good website: www.loopa.co.uk
    Has resources for AQA A psychology that are really useful.

    Think I should probably enter this! Definitely in dire need of motivation. My current grades are definitely lower than I would like, which particularly showed in my mocks which were two weeks ago. I am currently in year 12 so am studying AS

    My current (rough)/aim grades are:

    Maths (AS+A-Level in one year)- E/A*
    Chemistry (AS)- C/A
    Physics (AS)- D/A
    Economics- D/A

    Current grades based on my mocks and aim grades based on what I need to achieve in order to study engineering.

    I have recently been told that I should probably drop a subject unless I can turn my grades around, and that has seriously helped my motivation to turn them around but has also caused my confidence to dip a bit.

    Everyone's targets sound wonderful! Puddles will send you a PM on Monday (or maybe Tuesday due to the massive interest in this!) to verify your current grades, but you don't need to wait for that to start your blog! Make a thread in the Grow your Grades forum and tell us a bit about yourself, where you're at currently and what you aim to do :yep:

    Best of luck to you all

    Hi,
    I am currently in year 12 and studying Chemistry, Physics, History and Maths and started to self study Further Maths. My mock grades were not good at all, I got U in chem, U in physics C in history and C in maths. I am hoping to boost my grades up by the summer exams to B in chem and physics, C in history and further maths and an A in maths. I'd love to be a part of this as it'll give me motivation to reach my targets! Thanks!

    Hello, my name is Herecome_i and I am failing Biology AS. (Exam Board AQA). I've been getting Us and Es since the beginning of term, and I'm in danger of being dropped from the course. My other AS subjects are Chem, Stats and Religious Studies. I've been doing alright in my core maths and religious studies, but my stats and chem have recently been flailing in open waters.

    My my targets for the end of this year is to get a minimum of a B in bio, and A's in stats, chem and Religious Studies. As I am a prospective medical student, I would also like to score 85%+ in my BMAT and UKCAT tests.

    On my blog, I have set myself revision targets, and will check in a minimum of twice a week.

    I would love to be a part of this thread as it would give me some much needed motivation, and it would make me stick to my revision goals. I would also really like the support this thread would give me.

    Thank you.

    The things I struggle on are the applying your knowledge to new situations. So I need to work on that.
    Good luck to everyone else with their goals!
