    I'm in Year 13 and had my heart set on Medicine. My AS grades were average but not good enough to apply for medicine. So I didn't apply for uni this year so plan to take a gap year. I'm hoping to get an A in Chemistry but got a D in my mock. The whole class failed. An A* in Biology and Psychology. I'm mainly worried about Chemistry it just seems impossible to get an A even though I'm retaking AS. *sigh*.

    I'm currently doing GCSEs and would love to aim for an A* in all my subjects! I don't know if that would count as a proper goal though? If not then I want to work really hard for A*s in French and Computing as I find them both really difficult and teaching problems in year 10 left me with only a C in computing? I'm hoping to get my mock results for these subjects soon though. But I'd love to set up a blog it's such a great idea for motivation?

    I want to meet my university goals of ABC... but I got ADD in my AS exams..

    I took Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, I got A in Maths, D in both chemistry and physics

    The university is asking for ABC, or a BBC if firm choice, it is a university in the top 30 rankings, but they went really easy on my grades because I got a distinction in my BTEC Science (completed two year modules in one year). B in maths is needed

    I need to get at least a B in physics. and probably a B in chemistry too. I can most likely get A in Maths. My realistic target is ABB

    My problem is that I am way too distracted with video games etc. Not arrogant but I really believe in myself to do anything if I put my mind and effort into it, but I have trouble doing this to my studies because of games.. everytime I go to sleep, or walk to college and back, I day dream about studying all day, work hard, get good grades, but it never happens..

    I wish I had some kind of motivation, some kind of super motivation to push me to my limits because that was what I lacked last year's exams

    I think that you can still enter, you will just need to use your grades from internal exams to enter the competition - will have to clarify that though!

    This sounds like a really fun way to motivate myself

    On a gap year at the moment, was predicted AAA in biology, physics and chemistry for A2 with a B in AS maths.
    Ended up with CCCb because i figured i could work as hard for A2 as i did for GCSE....big mistake xD

    Going for AAA again this time. Have AAB offers from Bath, Nottingham and York for biology, still waiting on Durham and Imperial.

    If all goes well hoping for A* in at least one subject.

    Ok...

    So I'm currently targeted:
    Psychology - A
    Geography - A
    Economics - A
    English Lit - A

    However at the moment, I'm achieving

    Psychology - D
    Geography - D
    Economics - C
    English Lit - A (barely)

    I'm willing to try anything to reach my goal of achieving all A's in every subject. I believe it's possible if I put the work in but to have someone help me through it is literally perfection so sign me up!

    Also how do I email Puddles?
