    history is actually interesting though - studying law is like studying a highly complicated, often hypocritical and dry rule book.
    you can study what you want, but I'm trying to inform your decision-making here as somebody who both studied it at uni for a while and somebody whose only friends studying it do not find it fulfilling. I find my current degree fulfilling by contrast, for instance.
    I've already made my decision :yes:

    Do you study History now then?

    well, I guess just wait and see how you find the course
    no, I studied history for a level though
    I study politics now for uni - it involves a lot of history - the history of political institutions, for instance

    I can't believe I'm almost finished with exams now!

    The History exam was actually so so good, the questions were on African Americans, Women and Native Americans and I answered the Women and NA ones. The Women question was honestly the best question ever, it was the style of question that I love and it wasn't worded weirdly or anything. I think the essay I wrote for that is probably the best History essay I've ever done, and I'm so pleased with how that went. The Native American one was a bit more clunky, but I still think it did everything it needed to. According to one of my teachers, she thinks my History teacher had said I'd need 86% in the exam to balance out at 90% with my coursework, so I think an A* might just be achieveable.

    I've had Friday and Saturday pretty much work free and feeling light as a feather after History, but now I'm getting back into revising for Lit and Lang again, and thankfully it's all coming back to me very easily. I think putting in that extra revision for the mocks has really helped.

    After the last haul, I'm finally finished with all things A Level...

    My Language exam went well, and while I don't think I included enough of one of the assessment objectives, I think I've got a solid A (which despite my target being an A*, is all I was really hoping for). I guess we'll see on Results Day whether I did manage to get an A*, but either way I'll be happy.

    For Literature I really liked the paper and everything went smoothly! I'm hoping I did enough to get an A* in that.

    Honestly, I really think doing this blog has helped me revise. I've revised way more than I ever expected to, and for the first time in my exams, I've gone in feeling confident and came out feeling like my revision has paid off. I don't think I've ever known so much about my subjects! This blog has really motivated me to study, even to the point where I'd think "I have to make sure I have something to post!"

    Planning the rest of my holiday
    • I'm planning on getting back into bullet journal-ing to add some structure to my summer so I make the most of it.
    • Here's my first little plan for tomorrow and Tuesday, I hope you guys like it!
    Now my studying has officially finished, I want to try and help you guys! Let me know if you want me to make any printables, to give you tips for motivation, whatever!

    I did two in the first and two in the second, so I got my minimum in. I'm so happy, it actually went so, so well - I was so needlessly apprehensive about it. :nutcase:
    Congrats for exams being over, and happy they went well. Just two left for me.

    Thank you again! :ahee: God, I hope I meet my offer - the literature thread did scare me a bit because I saw people discussing quite advanced concepts I had never covered in class... But I think it went okay regardless. :grin:
