    Nope, you can no longer create threads here, but I think you could still make one in a different relevant forum! Also, feel free to chat with others' who've got their blogs here!

    Over on my blog I set myself the following goals for half term:

    Reread mister pip and make notes/ summaries to reinforce understanding
    Complete 2 biology homework booklets on microbes and disease
    Get up to date with art and get an idea for a final piece
    Revise all topics with a 5 in my revision booklet

    I also planned to spend 15 hours on any school related work, which is what the head teacher recommended


    Here is what I done:

    I'm happy to say I completed the 2 biology booklets in detail, caught up on all my art and came up with ideas for a final piece and revised all the topics with a 5 for maths, chemistry, biology and physics. While I didn't finish retreading mister pip, i got to page 100 which is okay as it wasn't necessary that I read it. I wanted to refresh my memory of it before starting class revision, but I watched the movie which helped with that, and I will be reading it again at Easter.


    This week I kept a tally of the hours of work I've done per subject, as seen below, and it turns out I have done a total of 31 hours, despite being told to do 15!! The only subjects I didn't do any work on we're French and English language. I did not do any English language as I have just finished revising it at school and I had no homework on it.



    French, on the other hand, I have no excuse for. Everyone says "you can't really revise for french", which I guess is sometimes true (in a practise paper there was a question about blind people, which was nothing to do with anything we learnt, and even my French teacher couldn't work it out. AND SHE IS FRENCH!!) I guess sometimes they test your ability to work things out but I still should have gone over some vocabulary at least, or practised some listening...so I will be doing that next week for sure! I've been a bit overloaded with French after having my speaking exam before half term so I needed a break!



    In biology, I made some B5 flashcards on examtime, as well as some B4 ones. I also completed two homework booklets on water and soil, and microbes for B6.



    For physics I revised nuclear fusion and fission, and then completed some quizzes on bbc bitesize



    In chemistry I completed my homework and revised every section involving equations, such as concentration. I then made flashcards for each equation to test myself.



    In maths I revised direct and inverse proportion, as well as different graphs for quadratic and inverse etc. I also completed the questions in my text book for all sections apart from algebra.



    For English language I read pages 1-100 of mister pip, watched the film, wrote a summary of chapters 1-4 and made a mindmap of the theme of conflict in the first chapter



    In history I revised the journey west, the struggles on the plains, early plains settlers, the civil war, little crows war and the homesteaders.



    For art I spent 12 hours getting my exam book up to date ready to start development tomorrow.



    So that is everything I managed to get done in half term. Im quite happy with how much I completed, as I was supposed to be doing a work experience placement all week which would have meant I would have lots of extra work when I was back at school, but unfortunately they never got back in contact with me!

    I've reached the stage where I'm now revising 7 hours a day to cover everything contentwise and for pastpapers. I've finished Stats and Unit 1 Chemistry so doing past papers for them on a regular basis now. I'm most woreied for Chem 4 and 5 though because the stuff is so hard to remember! Hopefully I've finished all of Unit 5's content by the end of April.

    I've got 6 exams left to finish up, so i've set a target to complete everything for 3 exams for each month for March and April. May will be just past papers and looking over everything one last time. OnceI've finished the content for each exam as I roll through I'll attempt past papers erstwhile.

    Wow, this is amazing, you are a machine! :dumbells: :eek3: It's a shame about your work experience placement, but don't let that get you down

    I guess you can't really revise for French in the same way that you'd revise for Biology, but it's really important that you keep practising the grammar and learn lots of new vocabulary. That way you'll be more prepared to answer questions on surprise topics! :woo: TSR has a French learning society which might be helpful

    I actually completed mine however it was quite small in comparison to others as it was to complete 3 papers
    That's awesome I think one of the key points of goal setting is that you make them achievable - there's nothing more demotivating than setting yourself up for something which is way too ambitious.

    I've reached the stage where I'm now revising 7 hours a day to cover everything contentwise and for pastpapers. I've finished Stats and Unit 1 Chemistry so doing past papers for them on a regular basis now. I'm most woreied for Chem 4 and 5 though because the stuff is so hard to remember! Hopefully I've finished all of Unit 5's content by the end of April.

    I've got 6 exams left to finish up, so i've set a target to complete everything for 3 exams for each month for March and April. May will be just past papers and looking over everything one last time. OnceI've finished the content for each exam as I roll through I'll attempt past papers erstwhile.
    I hope you're pacing yourself and not burning out What revision strategies are you using? Are you doing anything else other than past papers?

    Wow, this is amazing, you are a machine! :dumbells: :eek3: It's a shame about your work experience placement, but don't let that get you down

    I guess you can't really revise for French in the same way that you'd revise for Biology, but it's really important that you keep practising the grammar and learn lots of new vocabulary. That way you'll be more prepared to answer questions on surprise topics! :woo: TSR has a French learning society which might be helpful
    Thank you for the link, I'll be sure to check it out

    It's worked so far for stats and CHEM1 although they are by far my easiest exams this summer. I think the method of trying to finish 3 exams each month isn't too taxing, but if I fall a little short of the target it's not the end of the world as I have May to iron everything out.

    I'm using the CGP books for Maths and then attempting past paper questions and I use the official AQA textbooks for Bio and Chem with questions.
