    You're absolutely right.
    Who's this teacher, is she your head of year, reference writer?

    My law teacher (also the head of department) but I dunno whether it's her who's gonna write my reference or my other law teacher (who's also my Leader of Learning)

    Law applicant here whose sister also read law at uni - neither of us wrote about our subjects. The only subject-related thing I had was writing about how I independently studied Japanese and how my History coursework was on the Nuremberg Trials. Everything else was extra-curricula stuff.

    Can you smile and nod and agree with your teacher and just...not do what she says?
    I can only think of one subject topic I could even include if I was forced to include them, it's just so ridiculous I'm expected to include them even though there's no direct link to what I want to do at uni.

    No probably not because she's the one reading over my PS and continue to point it out

    Becoming a struggle trying to juggle economics homework with everything else. He's been setting a lot lately - he didn't set any last year.
    Every time I seem to finish one of these 13 page booklets he shoves down another 2-3 - I missed a law deadline too trying to get them all done.

    If she's so persistent, then include something relevant about one of your subjects. something that will bolster your PS.
    Then tell her that's no space for the rest

    Right so I've resorted to taking 6 Kalms a day to help me with A level stress! I started on them this morning and they are working reasonably well however I feel it might be a placebo effect :/

    I didn't originally but then my tutor helped me put in breaks without taking out any content and it looked much better. He said some admission tutors don't care but some do so if you can put them in. I'd say put in paragraph breaks if you can do it without losing content.

    Don't worry. I was stressing about the same thing a few days ago. I didn't put breaks in because I thought I couldn't do it but then somehow my tutor managed to do it.

    Good luck to you as well!

    I've had so much homework that I haven't had much time to even revise. However I find I am much more productive this year, finding that rewriting lessons with explanations of things i didnt understand is helping. Gonna use the half term wisely to go over AS (especially with retakes) and make some posters for A2. Its stressful and I am going to start working xD

    It's been busy, but surprisingly gentle so far...
    That said, I could do without the acids and bases topic in Chemistry :lol:

    I do look forward to it, but I also plan to re-learn all of Chemistry AS using my flashcards, go over all my Biology flashcards and see how much progress I have made

    If you hadn't guessed, I find flashcards extremely useful

    It's going pretty decent but I kinda have a backlog of homework at the moment that's just piling up. I'm excited for half-term but the amount of homeworks and projects I need to do is making it look pretty stressful.

    So far, lists are on the top of my list. They're pretty easy to make, useful, and they don't require you to actually plan what to write.


    P.S.

    Sorry for the horrible grammar.

    It's been stressful, what with applications and the fact that A2 hit me like a train. It has calmed down a bit because my UCAS is done! However I also have to revise for my BMAT which is painfullll. When that's done with, hopefull I can be more relaxed....hopefully!
    In terms of revision techniques, I love taking notes, like proper detailed in a noteboo.k. But this takes up a lot of time so right now, I'm just reading the textbook(s) and writing important points on a post it that I stick on the textbook page

    When your best friend submits her UCAS after you, gets an AAB offer from Warwick for German and Italian, yet here you are waiting patiently to hear back about your Modern Languages course trying not to cry.
