    School bits:
    Hi Everyone,

    I'm in year 11 so I will be sitting my GCSEs on the 18th May (eek). I also had mocks on the 22nd Feb so keeping this thread made sure I kept up with my revision. At the moment my targets and grades are:

    (WJEC) English Language: A*
    (WJEC) English Literature: A*
    (Edexcel) Maths: A*
    (OCR Gateway B) Biology: A*
    (OCR Gateway B) Chemistry: A*
    (OCR Gateway B) Physics: A*
    (AQA) German: A*
    (OCR Modern) History: A*
    (AQA) Geography: A*
    (OCR National) ICT: A*

    Some of you may look at this and wonder how I can improve, but I set really high standards and in some of my mocks I have been getting 84/85 and scores like that, so I am working towards getting as high a mark as possible, and not just securing the grade.

    Hopefully, if I can get the grades, I want to go on to college and study Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Geology.

    Personal bits:
    If you want a bit of background I've always been quite good academically (though I genuinely hate to admit it) but I believe it is down to the fact that I have severe Atopic Eczema (that the specialist said was the worst in 30 years) and because of this, I have found studying to be a worthy distraction. I also can't see out of one eye which makes life interesting but I like it that way. If I can work hard enough, and get into University, I will be the first person in my family to do so, and considering my parents have barely any qualifications, this is definitely something I aspire to.

    A few last words:
    I am open to any advice or constructive criticism and I am happy to help anyone too.

    If you want to find out more about me as a person I would be happy to post info and along the way, I will be detailing revision I have done, so if you would like to see pictures of it just let me know and I'll be happy to upload

    Also, recently, people have asked if they can post their revision on here too so it can help motivate everyone and we can help each other along - feel free to join in

    Mocks (22nd Feb)
    Here's the posts I made about the mocks I have just taken

    I think you're awesome! I'm visually impaired too and it's great to see someone in a similar position to me who clearly doesn't let it get in their way. Good luck with your GCSEs! ^_^ (I do think you're a bit mad for the subjects you want to take in college though :P)

    And you should see a signature box. Just erase what's there and type in your quote or whatever you want.

    Today's been such a waste of a day...I've spent until 6pm laying in bed not doing anything as I felt really ill, but now I feel better I'm so EXHAUSTED and don't want to do anything!
    I'll try and get a tiny bit done as I don't want to have wasted the day completely (as tbh I can't really afford to!)

    It was a great idea And yeah I do German, I love languages, but would have preferred to study Mandarin instead, but the school doesn't offer it so I am going to try and learn it through summer



    Hi, yeah they've gone well - a bit apprehensive for Biology and English Lit as they are my weakest but we will have to wait and see. I don't blame you - 3000 posts is a lot to look through

    Are you doing exams?
    WOW your very determined... I'm just gonna read books during the summer

    Aw that's a shame, but if you feel like you need to rest then do it, no point forcing yourself and it may be more harmful. Just enjoy a good night's sleep and get back into it tomorrow

    Thank you so much
    You're visually impaired too? That's really cool (not to be impaired obviously but it's good we have something in common). Are you doing GCSes - good luck if you are!!

    And if you don't mind me asking, why am I a bit mad

    well done even when you say your days aren't productive, they always seem productive to me! you have probably already covered this - but could you possibly give a brief outline of your revision process/ technique? thank-you
