    Thanks :awesome:

    I don't normally go outside because I burn so easily, but it was a very still day in terms of wind today and I had my sunglassses on so it was all cool :cool: :lol:
    Sums up my life, tbh, ugh fresh air. :afraid: Jk, the outside is tolerable those sunglasses are so pretty btw
    How are you revising for literature atm? I find that I'm pushing it away more, in favour of politics because literature isn't as content rich. I think I'll do more on it in June, though

    Haha, same for me for the most part :lol:

    We've been doing some practice essays in class, but at home I'm just going over the quotes for my wider reading again and again and again I've been prioritising History at the minute though because Lit feels like years away

    How is your coursework going?

    Over the weekend I've been making flashcards for History to help me with learning what the Presidents did and when they were, because one of the questions might ask about a specific President. I also feel like I've been neglecting Russia a little bit, so I'm going to do an hour or so of that tonight.

    Yesterday I got back the essay we did in exam conditions for History, and I got 60/60!! I was so pleased, because things are really starting to come together now and I have a good chance of getting the A* in Literature and History.

    Russia: 8 days left
    Gen St 1: 10 days left

    Gen St 3: 24 days left
    History: 24 days left

    Leaving school!
    • We've got our Leaver's hoodies now (and I'm that much of a nerd that my hoodie has my username on...)
    • Our last full day is Thursday, and then we have a Leaver's assembly on Friday (which I'm doing the tech stuff for) before our Leaver's party!
    Are there any guides or masterposts you guys would find helpful?

    It's understandable given the circumstances, but some revision might help to build up your confidence in your own abilities again :hugs:

    Thanks

    Hello again everyone!
    Nothing much interesting has happened at school for the last few days, except today the Year 11s were having a full day of English lessons, which meant I didn't have an English Language or Literature lesson... I had History and Gen Studs in the morning, then from 11:10 until 15:30 I had no lessons to go to! I spent all day revising the women topic for History, because we're doing the essay tomorrow. We also did a fact test on it today, and I got 40.5/50, which I think was the highest score.

    Leaving school is starting to get very real, and I don't like it!

    In other news, I made a new guide today on the pomodoro technique which you should all have a look at here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4078095

    Update 19/05/2016

    Today was my last day of lessons at Sixth Form... I'm super emotional about leaving behind the school I've been at for 7 years, and all of the friends I've had. We're going back in tomorrow morning for our Leaver's Assembly and then we're going out for Leaver's Party (so I won't be able to write an update for my official last day). My form tutor decorated mugs for us all with a message on for each of us, and mine was 'if this was Hogwarts, you would be Hermione', which I think was pretty accurate!

    I got back another Literature essay, where I got 37/40 because I tried to be too clever and added an extra bit that lost me marks (the question asked for wider reading about drama and I'd included loads of drama stuff but added in a poem too because the link was too nice to not talk about haha). I've not been doing as much revision for the past few days because I've been trying to make the most of leaving school, but I should be back in full swing on Sunday and revising during the day too as we'll have started study leave.

    Russia: 6 days left
    Gen St 1: 8 days left
    Gen St 2: 18 days left
    Gen St 3: 22 days left
    History: 22 days left
    Gen St 4: 27 days left
    Language: 27 days left
    Literature: 29 days left

    When do you start study leave?
