    I was too stubborn with essay writing subjects, I just told myself I was bad at them and left it at that to focus on maths/physics/chem (got A* in those so it was worth it) but yeah I just wasn't motivated for any subjects that involved writing essays.
    Obviously though it's much easier to look back and say these things but I was just a bit stupid with my revision back then, a few too many subjects where most of them I wasn't interested in.
    Also got a bit lucky, originally had a mid-D and was forced to retake but after a remark it went up by like 14 ums to a mid-C but I still chose to resit to try get a B instead.

    Na you weren't really stupid you were just prioritizing ^_^ It's really hard to motivate yourself in year 11 because you have so many subjects and some of them you're basically forced to do since you don't enjoy them >.> For me, maths are physics are just ugh. It's good you've resat because it shows you care Good luck for the future and your Cambridge dream
