    You're doing great :yep:

    Has this been affecting your class performance in any way?

    I was talking to a friend today because hanging around the academic forums has really been improving mine. People on here are truly awesome
    I've not really had any tests recently to judge it by because of coursework, but it feels like I'm doing a lot more work and being more productive

    It is a great community to encourage people in :yep:

    Update 15/03/2016

    I haven't had back my History essay yet, but I was talking to my teacher today and she said it was good! I also did an extra lesson of History to revise for Russia today in one of my frees, and planned lots of essays with the teacher - it was really helpful. Yesterday I also handed in another draft of my English Language Investigation coursework! For once though, I don't think I actually have any new photos to show you!! :eek2:

    I hope you're all doing well

    Update 25/03/2016

    Wow, I didn't realise how long it had been since my last update! I'll go over subject by subject what's been happening:
    History - I've got back a draft of my personal study and my teacher said it was really good, it just needed neatening up a bit and cutting down the word count. The word limit is 2000 but when I handed it in it was on 2571! I've been working on it today and have managed to get it down to 2234 words though, which I'm really pleased with. I also did an essay for Russia revision, which my teacher marked before we broke up for Easter yesterday - she didn't give me a grade so I wouldn't get caught up on just looking at grades, but she said it was good and gave me some really good points to work on for the next one.
    English Literature - I'm just about to hand in my final draft for my coursework, it essentially has full marks but my teacher wants me to have one final look over Easter for mistakes and places where my wording could be better. In terms of revision, our other teacher showed us how to do some quote cards that I'll show you below!
    English Language - We got back a marked and graded copy of our coursework for improvement, and at the minute I'm on a C (one mark off a B), but my teacher said that the marks at this stage are very easy to pick up, and I'm going to be editing that later today. My media piece is coming along nicely but I haven't had any feedback from my teacher so I don't really know how to improve that over Easter, but I'll give it a go...
    In other news, I visited Durham for the Post Offer Visit Day on Tuesday and Wednesday to look at my college (Hild Bede) and have a talk and example lecture! It was really good and now I'm really motivated to try and get the grades to get there!

    • On one side of the flash card, I write the quote so I can test myself on it either way around
    • On the other side I write notes about how I'd refer to each poem in terms of each assessment objective
    • This way I can test my memory of the quotes or my memory of the analysis!
    Have you guys started revising?

    That's good Yeah I agree, you can never be 100% if they've gone well but I think you generally know if they've gone badly
