    Hey guys I'd like to enter the competition.

    Last year was horrible for me, I ended up doing badly (ADE) and not getting into uni. So now I'm on a gap year resitting a few biology exams and I'm also studying a level history in one year too.

    I have an offer from UCL to study history providing I get AA in biology and history. I feel confident in getting an A for history (I'm actually aiming for A*) but an A in biology seems nearly impossible. Either way I'm gonna give it my all since studying history at UCL will be a dream come true.

    Hi I'm currently doing AS levels and feel I need extra motivation in fulfilling my goals.

    My goals are:

    A-Physics
    A-Maths
    A-Spanish
    A-Religious Studies
    B/C-Further Maths

    It might sound strange but Further Maths is actually my most important goal as it is the subject I am struggling with the most.

    Hi guys!
    I'm doing IB and currently starting semester 2 of my grade 11

    I really want to improve my grades because I want to go to a medical school. I'm setting my standards high on Cambridge and Oxford

    My current grades are as follows:

    Biology HL 6
    Chemistry HL 6
    Psychology HL 7
    Mathematics SL 6
    Bahasa Indonesia A Literature SL 7
    English A Language and Literature SL 7

    Total: 39/42 , excluding core points

    I'm not sure whether my school will send the predicted grades with or without the core points. So now, I'm just pulling my strings really hard. I just want to make sure that I will be put into the qualified bin when the admission officers see my CV.

    My goal at the end of this semester is to get 41/42 and if possible 42/42.

    Let's work hard !

    My goal is definitely an A in History as it is for all my other subjects, although I don't think it's that impossible as I know I haven't been revising enough. History in particular because I am working at a C but my teacher says I am well able to get an A

    My other current Grades are:

    Psychology D
    Biology D
    Chemistry U (I have since started to revise seriously due to kick up **** given by contrast to grades of small tests)

    Currently in my 3rd year of sixth form as I messed up my first year by picking the wrong subjects. I already have:
    Fine Art A2: C
    Classics A2: C
    Law AS: B
    And I am currently studying and predicted:
    Law A2: A
    English lang AS: B
    English lang A2: B

    But I'm aiming for all A's this year, possibly go for A* in Law if I resit my AS (undecided on this so far).
