Heya!

So, I have had two gap years due to financial inconsistencies , one between my IGCSEs and A Levels and one after A Levels last year, which is coming to an abrupt end. In September I will be heading to uni to do Civil Engineering. I am very excited :jive:.

Only I have forgotten absolutely everything about studying, working, target meeting and of course, my maths and physics are atrocious! Literally, I cannot do a sum, and it takes forever to understand or even do anything academic-wise. I was working to save for uni and I didn't touch a book the entire time because I had two jobs. Now I realise I didn't do myself any favors there at all, because I am not even that clever :sigh:!

I have got all my A level Maths ans Physics books out and got copies of the textbooks I used in A levels. I have a month and a tiny bit to sort my situation out, and I am down to one job now (I am currently at work, actually). Every now and then I do quizes online here and write little notes in a little book but I feel like I'm not doing it right. Do I need a timetable for when I get home? Do I do past papers and fail them until I pass them? I am so lost :confused:.

If anyone knows where to start, how to get round this, motivation and all sorts of other helpful things, please help a girl? It will be much appreciated .

I've literally JUST got out a book called 'How to study: Practical tips for students' by Phil Race..it covers everything from essays to job interviews, I think it could be helpful to you I'm also starting uni in September so its helpful for the transition

Okay.


Cover pure modules, (Cores and Further) and Mechanics only. No need for Stats/Decision.


Don't focus on Quantum Physics, that's superfluous. Look mainly at your Mechanics modules and momentum and anything else you've covered. Don't do electricity, it'll be redundant. Work smart, not hard. You'll be fine.

Yes, ok. This is a good start to planning what to do and what to chuck. Thank you ever so much.

If you can achieve 90%+ in your core and 85-90% in your Mechanics, you'll be fine!
