    Thank you! Making a thread like this was a great motivation to keep going, even when procrastination becomes tempting. Can't wait for the three month break
    Definitely, it keeps things very organised as well (as you can see ) what have you got planned?

    We'll be going around Europe this summer. Then I'll be going out with friends. I feel like for the remainder, just stay at home and relax, catching up with some TV series like House of Cards e.t.c. A regular summer!
    What are you planning to do?

    Oh, don't worry, at times between now and then it'll feel like a drag, you'll sit loads of exams, there'll be long holidays, fun stuff going on as well, before you finally get to this stage, and when you look back you think 'wow, this flew by quickly'. If you remember, come back in a few years and say 'that guy was right :lol:'.

    Yes. Year 12 is short and Year 13 is even shorter. (Apart from exam season, where every day feels like a drag :lol:)

    Thanks, yeah :lol: don't get too gripped.. the results won't change if you observe them or wake up to find 'em, you know, and at this point in time your exam is more important :lol: good luck once again.

    UPDATE 6/7/16
    I know it has been a long while but I thought it'd be interesting for me to talk about what's been going on recently in my life. School closed early for year 11's who've finished their exams, so 24th of June for me. So I've been free for 2 weeks now! Apart from playing out and video games, I haven't got up to much but that should change in the coming week.

    So far, our prom happened a week ago and it was a wonderful event. Everyone came together for the last time for food and the partying became insane! Didn't go to after-prom though because I was really too tired and wanted to just relax at home! The venue was gorgeous but the thought I won't see a lot of people in Sixth Form is sad.

    Next, this Monday, we had our taster student day for college. You may already know my A-Level options were Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics. These subjects were definitely intriguing for the most but I felt Maths was leaning too far to the GCSE side rather than giving us a taste of A-Level material. Biology has a lot of content to it but the movement of topics to the human biology side is something I like for these reformed A-Levels. Chemistry was good; we were doing enthalpy experiments which are basically work to do with Endothermic and Exothermic reactions but in detail. Physics, to my delight is mostly Maths now due to reforms which I don't mind at all! There was experiments on movement of objects in the air and working out initial velocity and graph work. The overall atmosphere of the college is great and staff are friendly as well! I'm probably enrolling there in September! I can't wait

    Finally some plans I have left for the holidays is starting to go to the gym more. I have a membership that I don't even bother to use! Next week, we'll be going on holiday, so that's something to look forward to. After that, it'll be the start of some work experience, probably at a care-home which is vital for taking medicine at university.

    Anyway, I'll try to do updates once in a while up to results day! And yes, I may share my results here when I get them. Everyone else, enjoy the rest of your holidays; you've earned a well deserved break.

    There's a local carehome here that allows for people to help with general duties there. Since being a doctor is about the caring profession, it is really good! I'm also looking at helping at childrens play areas but getting jobs there can be difficult. Just lookup care homes and stuff in the area, you're bound to find some form of experience.

    • So a regular day today. Went out for a walk, played Pokemon go for an hour and got far with it.
    • I researched about my sixth form, the subjects and how to prepare for them. The college sent info on it.
    • I've watched Central Intelligence movie yesterday! It was awesome. Has to be one of the funniest I've seen in a while.
    • Watching Child Genius TV show on catch-up.
    So mostly a lazy day, just how a holiday is meant to be!

    I think there may be some small changes in results but I hope to reach a minumum target of 8A*'s and 3A's. I'd be disappointed with 7 but it is still a good result.

    Well 46 is now an A meaning 96 UMS. So even if you got full 80 UMS on exams, you'd be at 176, which missed an A* by 4 marks. I feel the same way as you since I got 46 too. However good luck, I'm sure you'll do great!
