    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:
    I haven't looked at the thread, but don't worry about it either way :nah: you don't need advanced concepts if your interpretations aren't about advanced concepts - both can be just as valid

    Update 19/06/2016

    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!"

    Russia: DONE
    Gen St 1: DONE
    Gen St 2: DONE
    Gen St 3: DONE
    History: DONE
    Gen St 4: DONE
    Language: DONE
    Literature: DONE
    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!

    ~Gingerbread~
    Well done :hugs: :woo:

    Update 18/02/2016

    Results Day didn't really go as planned...

    I got AAB (with the B in English Language), with my A in History being 1 mark off an A* and English Language being dragged down by a D in the exam. My offer for Durham was A*AA, and York was AAA but they still accepted me. I was very surprised about the D, so I'm getting the English Language exam remarked as well as the History to hopefully gain 4 marks in English and 1 mark in History to bring my grades up to A*AA and then hopefully Durham will reconsider me.

    Russia: 87 UMS, 76/100, A
    Gen St 1: 94 UMS, 55/65, A
    Gen St 2: 100 UMS, 55-65/65, A
    Gen St 3: 70 UMS, 40/70, B
    History: 107 UMS, 97/120, A
    Gen St 4: 82 UMS, 48/70, A
    Language: 70 UMS, 49/96, D
    Literature: 87 UMS, 53/80, B

    My coursework was my saving grace really, so I hope you guys have done better than me!

    Thanks I really wish things had paid off a bit more... perhaps I'm just not as good in exam situations as I used to be
