    **Hint hint- this might be the criteria which the winner is chosen on **
    Revision blog top tips:

    1. Be specific
    We're really interested to hear about everything that you do- made an exam timetable? I'm interested. Created some swish flashcards? Show 'em off! Wrote out your notes? Yep, I want to hear about it!

    2. Be reflective
    Find out what does and doesn't work for you, evaluate how you're feeling about exams and how you can make improvements as you go.

    3. Show your working
    Tell us what methods you're using, how they're helping and what you don't like. Share your wisdom so we can all learn from each others mistakes.

    4. We want to get to know you!
    Show us a bit of personality, get creative let us know the highs and lows of your revision.

    5. Keep up to date
    Keep posting regularly and don't give up! You don't need to post every day, but updating regularly will be key to an excellent (and useful) blog!
    Thanks for this! Has given me a better idea on what to do with my blog

    Is it? I think it's good enough GCSE is probably the latest results day for every student (uni students get them way before, IB do as well I think, A-level students get them the week before).. so plenty of time for everyone to share their results in their blogs

    Exactly as SeanFM has said

    We wanted to make sure everyone had time to improve their grades and get results back before we announced a winner

    Hello Everyone!

    Firstly- blogs are looking great- I hope they're helping you keep on track already

    This is the first mini prize that we're running within Grow Your Grades :woo:

    The Study Planner Competition is now OPEN FOR ENTRIES

    We're looking for you guys to share your study plan- or make one if you don't have one.
    If you want to be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is upload a picture/document/PDF etc of your own study plan IN THIS THREAD.

    We'll be judging them based on this criteria:

    - How Smart is your plan?
    AKA: It doesn't have to be chock a bloc with lots of revision we're not judging how much revision you're doing, just that you've thought about how much you should be doing and thought about when you'll be doing it.

    -Built around your actual life
    We want to see that you've thought realistically about how you're revision is going to fit around your lifestyle- That you've factored in enough time for each exam and also your social life etc.

    - Creative
    We'll be looking for ways you've added extra detail onto your plan- like colour coordination or pictures.

    - Detailed
    If you have lots of information about what you plan of leaning in each revision session then that would be looked upon favorably

    Overall, it's up to you how you present it- after all it's your study planner and should work for you! However we do want to see at least a two week plan. If you don't already have a study planner created- you can use the TSR study planner here.

    You have until the 17th March to get your entry in. Winner will be announced on the 18th.

    Winner gets:

    :yay:£35 Amazon Voucher :yay:


    Just so you know...
    This is only open to Grow Your Grades entrants- your entry will not be counted if you don't have a blog... however you don't have to join in with this if you don't want to.

    This will not affect your chances of winning the main prize.

    You can only have one entry.

    Grow Your Grades babes
