    Hello everyone after very disappointing results for my Jan AS exams I swore to myself that I will actually work hard and get A's/B's in the summer.

    So I'm going to do a "diary" of my revision on a daily basis until I finish my exams in June.

    You may ask what is the point of this? This will make me stay motivated to actually do revision as I will be wanting to post on what I do daily.

    Subjects I do:

    Chemistry
    Physics Force and the newton, Motion with non-constant acceleration, Equilibrium
    Psychology
    I.T

    So I'm going to start revision this Monday- 11th March.
    I will be posting on what I have revised/how long/main events @ school/ outside school.

    Thanks for reading feel free to join in too

    Turning forces

    Now to right up some psychology notes :/ What a great Saturday!

    Sunday 17th March

    Never revise saying I will revise 1 hour of maths and 1 hour of chemistry etc. Revise saying I will finish these chapters today and these chapters tomorrow, then you wont have time as your enemy.

    At the beginning of the day, make a checklist of all you want to cover and regardless of how busy your day is, you should aim to do some revision ( excluding note taking and homework) on at least 3 of you 4/5 AS subjects.
