I GOT REALLY BAD AS RESULTS. I want to turn it around? Watch


    (Original post by MAESTRO265)
    I mean the 3 year period of GCSEs and A-levels. I got 6 A-levels all together. I had to take a gap year this year and the university wanted further maths so I did further maths during that 4 months and few retakes. I did 5 A-levels in the two years before. I got 5 As in AS but was in a terrible state during A2( rugby from a few years back cause spinal injury and I couldn't sit at a desk or anything, plus I had liver issues). So at the end of A2 got A maths, A biology, A chemistry, B geography, A extended project. Then I took the maths to A* this year and got B in further maths. I am in better state now had a good physio, been at the gym, liver is good just getting fitter now. I sacrificed everything though, at one time I was at a rugby club, tennis club, football club, kickboxing club, air cadets, got hammered with mates. I went from that every week to only study, it was depressing but I wanted it so much and have finally done it. Like I said I was no brain box but I did effective study and memorisation which is something you have to develop yourself. We all have our own regime. I am now due to start UCl Meng computer science (4 years). My mate who was in a tough financial situation and by no means had fun like other students worked hard and ended up getting to Cambridge. You have to be willing to have no life lol.
    What about your PhD in neurology mate? Oh no.. Wait, you made that up.
