    Hey Guys, UPDATE FOR 01/04/2016
    So today I've managed to do everything that i planned to

    1. Review of Biology unit 2
    2. Three past papers and looked at all the weaknesses
    3. Physics paper marked and Biology unit 3 overview
    4. Writing down all my weaknesses for Biology Unit 2 - so then i would know where to concentrate more.

    Because it's April I feel like it would be best if i started to do more past papers and looked at my weakness rather than writing notes all the time as it's time-consuming but I've made notes for all the subjects except from Psychology. then i would have more time to do past papers because they are so crucial Apparently, examiners recycle questions but in a different form ...

    I was just wondering but are any of you guys stressing and panicking because i don't seem to.... ??
    How do you manage to have A*'s in everything? I want to get high grades also but I'm stuck at B's or A's and for maths I'm borderline B, on a C!

    If you revise hard you can get to the A* well for my mocks i took them really seriously ( a bit seriously) but i did work hard
    Past papers are so crucial and make sure you revise efficiently and don't procrastinate and motivation which is really annoying because like yesterday i got demotivated and i hate it

    If you revise you can get there Just trust in yourself and think postitively
    Hope i helped and what subjects do you do?

    Thank you so much for replying and for the advice!
    I have always been negative on myself, but I think it is a result of my teachers negatively labelling me as I was a bit of a rascal in my earlier years

    oh & my subjects and exam boards are:

    Edexcel Maths
    AQA English Lan
    AQA English Lit
    AQA Core Physics (retake)
    AQA Core Biology (retake)
    AQA Core Chemistry (retake)
    AQA Additional Science
    Edexcel Drama
    Edexcel Religious Studies
    OCR French
    AQA Geography

    Are we doing any of the same subjects (same exam boards)?

    Today I did English Literature and it didn't go as well as i thought i would. Mainly because i didn't know how to revise rather than making notes and doing questions

    1. Made notes on OMAM - Themes and Characters
    2. Did two questions on OMAM - Extract question and essay question
    3. Read through York Notes for Lord of the Flies - Themes and Characters
    4. Did one questions on 'a view from the bridge' and wrote notes on characters and themes
    5. Watched two videos on Youtube - Extract questions and poetry analysis

    Then i got distracted and eventually procrastinated (Great!!) - because it's boring and i didn't know how to revise + my weakest subject If you guys have any tips please feel free to tell me Thank you !

    English Literature is a difficult subject for a lot but it becomes easy with the passage of time as one consistently practices. Its good to watch YouTube videos for help. Procrastination is a quality everyone has - don't worry if you do it a little. My advice is, make a plan for each essay rather than writing it out. That's a new trick I learnt to do..write the question, write the intro, bullet point the 3-4 paragraphs you'd write about (include the evidence and analysis) and write the conclusion for the texts you are studying. It saves time and is more effective.

    Not sure about mindmaps and notes...revise the info instead.

    Welcome. You should feel like you're getting more done if you write out plans (like I explained above the format) for all the texts you are studying. It'll get tedious and too time consuming to do all of them but the plan is for you to get a general idea of what you would write about in response to a question.

    You won't know exactly which theme/character question you'd get so plans are better!

    My revision (consisting of revising the content and doing past papers) is going okay..I've done a lot of RS, Physics, Chem and Bio..
    Done a bit of maths in the holidays too..looked a bit at English..
    Started History today..

    Its really long but I'm doing it. I need to do more but I've got some time to do it in.

    Haven't touched the drama theory or Mandarin vocab revision but I'm good at both. I'm good at English (and now Math too mostly) that I've sided those 4 subjects a bit in the holidays and focused on the longer ones!

    You say? I've been reading a few of ur updates and you've done quite a lot.
