    It was nice relaxing yesterday haha, tomorrow and the day after I most likely won't be able to revise (late birthday parties) so I'll try and cram a lot of things into today. I feel like I should be doing a hell of a lot today because I didn't revise properly for a long long time. So I want to finish chapter 3 in biology, chapter 2 in chemistry, the entire C2 for maths and for German.....(if you've been keeping up with this blog you'll probably have guessed this) more grammar work haha, I'm completely throwing my phone away for the entire day because it's always the main reason why I can't focus

    I'm doing the same for maths and chemistry but I'm doing aqa for biology and history

    Maths - chemistry is by far and away my weakest subject though - I was actually asked to drop it but I refused

    You?

    Good on you for persevering!
    They're all pretty weak subjects for me oops.
    Due to the lack of revision I've done throughout the year, I have a lot to do this month.
    But I think we can get through this - you certainly can!

    I don't know why I bothered though, I absolutely detest chemistry now bleh

    Haha, oops, what are your current grades?
    I like your optimism! We can certainly do this (fingers crossed)

    Ouch. That must hurt especially as there's only like 5 weeks before the exams.

    And I thought I was doing badly

    I'm on a B for history but like always 1 or 2 marks away from an A, an A for maths and biology and a C for chem....

    Yeah. Chem isn't too good for me. And I wanna be a doctor so I have to suck it up and revise for it.

    You can get those A's! Loool is there still time for me to get A's....
    What do you find difficult?
    I always find that my answer isn't good enough for the markscheme lol - it's always like "ignore blah blah" so my answers are never good enough

    Looool - hopefully so, and besides, I have friends who are still getting E's and U's in their subjects so you're doing substantially better .

    None of it makes any sense to me :cry: especially all the moles stuff, I keep missing a step here and there and I've thrown away 7 marks by the end of the question and multiple choice questions and this is gonna make me sound like a dumb idiot but I hate writing out equations :cry: :curls up in corner:

    Help.

    Aww, I gave the same problem for biology it's so irritating, you've got the right concept but the keyword was missing so no marks. Bleh. Chem sucks. My chem teacher sucks too. I went to a revision session with a different teacher and she was SO GOOD - shame she doesn't do any of those extra help sessions at my college.

    Omg no way. I thought it was just me and I thought it was just me being an idiot because everyone else always seems to write them out so effortlessly and I'm just like how.

    I hate the multiple choice questions where you have to write out the equation for each possible answer cuz I can't even do one let alone 4 and figure out which ones right

    Hey, having been in an almost similar situation as you, where I wasn't as pleased with my GCSE's and my AS not being entirely perfect, yet wanting to do medicine i would love to help you out here and there if you need anything. Not doing the same exam boards as you but maths tends to be very similar in content and units, so let me know if you want help with anything Good luck with your exams.

    Just going to pop my head into this conversation and say I can't stand equations either as well as the multiple choice questions! They're like 1 mark each but take a century to complete I also suck at amount of substance (mainly those really confused questions where you barely even know what they're asking you )

    Lol sorry, I just realised we've been having a conversation complaining about revision while you're trying to revise oops.

    Phew! So it's not just me then, I genuinely thought it was just me . I HATE those too - I loathe them with a passion - ESPECIALLY the ones where they do a titration and you have to work out how the concentration and volume changed. And those questions where they give you the atomic number and tell you to work the moles are eeeeeevil because we always fall in the trap. I KNOW - **** multiple choice questions - who even thought it was a good idea to put them in?

    It's okay, I wasn't revising right now (or yesterday) so no worries
    Titration has become my worst enemy this year, I've done the practical about 500 times for God knows what reason and the calculations are the most boring thing ever! And ughhhh those questions where they seem too easy to be true especially with moles and Mr are the worsttttttttt

    Oh that's good - the not disturbing you part, not the not you revising part. BTW I wanna be a doctor too and I was wondering, have you looked at any uni's yet?

    WHAT?! I know you're exaggerating but I only had to do it 3 times and I felt like crying. Especially since I kept dropping everything lol and my teacher wasn't too happy. Oh. My. God. Those questions are literally the bane of my entire existence - you just jump straight into it and you're like "I've got this!" And then you get 0

    No problem! And not too bad actually. I've managed to put my self in a good position in the Easter holidays by catching up on all my notes and doing plenty of past papers. Just got a Biology EMPA tomorrow and I am stressing about it haha! I'll just have to see how it goes.

    Haha well we've done the practical at least 10 times but who's i've lost count tbh. Same! I literally am going to drop out of school if I have to do any more titration a (praying to God it doesn't come up in A2).

    And yepp I've looked into Cambridge, Imperial/UCL, Southampton, Kings and perhaps a Uni in Germany. What about you?
