    To those who are doing linear courses have you started to revise or thinking of starting soon?
    Im currently doing my last years content in frees that i have and doing this years at home. Just wondering how others are approaching this
    Yeah I'm planning to slot in a bit of AS each week in my study schedule - though I am not sure if I should re-write notes or just read then do questions

    With tears.

    Just joking, I'll probably just keep reviewing the stuff frequently throughout the year. My only linear one for this year is Lit, so I'll just re-read the books/plays and review my notes periodically.
    Makes sense, you not going to make any new notes?

    I'm in the same dielema! May just make better notes and condense them further.

    Not really, I have nothing to add to them.

    Mine is too! I'm so grateful to have her as she has been doing the job for years and she can always get most people into uni! She does seem to remove things which I feel are vital so I have extra copies floating around other members of staff just to be safe XD

    Exactly the same here! Some teachers have got back to me before others so it's fun seeing what each teacher wants to be taken out

    I only feel comfortable having several people look at it so hopefully, in the end I will have a really nice finished one

    Aren't we technically in year 13, seeing as last year has already finished?

    ANYWAY...

    Have people visited the uni's they would like to go to yet?
    How are your personal statements getting along?
    What subjects are you currently studying and, what do you hope to study at uni (give the 5 uni's you want to go to)
    I'm going to find it difficult to visit universities I'd potentially like to go to...

    Yeah I have, although I don't really agree with most of the edits because it wouldn't sound like my writing if I implemented them and there's a few nuances in meaning that are lost. It's still good to get a second opinion but I haven't changed my ps much as a result if I'm honest!

    So I love six unis. And I have five choices. I'm looking at Oxford, Edinburgh, Manchester, Warwick, Durham and Bath. I think I'm stuck between Durham and Bath, but I love the course at Bath, but I love Durham. Any help would be much appreciated!

    I'm going to start revision soon, as I have 1 AS exam to revise for, 6 A2 exams and 2 GCSE exams. I know we've literally just started back at school but I want to go from DEE to much higher grades. I know I can do it I just need to make sure I have this mindset all year round also I need to make sure I'm on top on any homework and coursework I need to do, as that will definitely help
