    English went well today - nice questions from Edexcel again!

    Only been doing stuff for my exams tomorrow...

    Geography - Finished past paper and did quizzes
    German - Major vocab recap on vocab tester and from textbook

    Not too worried about German, hopefully OCR will be feeling kind for Geography!

    German was pretty good - listening wasn't too bad, reading was great!
    Geography skills was a bit of a horrible paper but I did as well as I could - at least it only counts for 25%! Best of all, Geography is done!!

    Maths tomorrow so...
    Completed two predicted papers
    Completed 50 page A-A* question booklet
    Went over weaknesses

    End of exams is so close now!

    I'd say relatively well, had Geography today and messed up the last 8 mark question, gave all the correct information for the case study, but wrote the wrong case study name

    That's good!
    That must be so annoying - surely you'll still get some marks though, right?

    If I remember correctly, that was exactly what I thought after my B2 and B3! B2 is always a bit of an odd one I think Well done! How many exams do you have left now?

    At the moment I am making big posters on each section - some people say it's a waste of time making them look pretty but for me, the time it takes doing it is a really good way of making sure that I'm revising everything! I also make mind maps, flashcards and quizzes and I do past papers throughout (2012 to 2015 as well as the specimen papers). It's worked so far - feeling a bit worried about physics though!
    What are you doing for revision for science?

    I've been a little lacking in motivation to be honest! Even though it's less than a week until exams are over, even that hasn't been enough to make me do more physics revision!! I didn't have any time in the morning but this is what I did...

    Chemistry - Continued making big C3 poster (hopefully I'll finish it tomorrow) and finished specimen paper we started in class
    Physics - Completed P3 specimen paper and I got 48/60 which I was very proud of, I was hoping to get above 40!

    It's so weird only having 2 subjects to revise!
