    Stop watching Ceebeebies on iplayer in frees for a start.

    Also create revision material/example essays as i progress through the year. Rather than swarming a rush of writing and paper

    Stop procrastinating and actually do some work, especially in free periods. Last year the amount of time I spent outside of lessons doing work amounted to the square route of naff all.

    Really going to try this year.

    Work harder on revising topics as I go so I don't end up cramming before exams and such.

    Also, work harder to perform well in class tests. Did really quite badly in a lot last year....

    I will most definitely start revising immediately and stop procrastinating all the time. I can't afford to fail next year.

    I will have to start revising at home. I won't leave my coursework till the night before either.

    Will probably be predicted an A*AB based on AABB results. Need to reach it!

    I'm going to make notes as I go along rather than leaving everything to the last minute. Also, make sure I spend a similar amount of time on each subject rather than leaving very little time for one subject - normally my last exam and it really showed in my results. I probably ought to turn my laptop off when I'm trying to revise too as I get too easily distracted!

    I was predicted a D in Geography , came out with two marks of an A. That shut everyone in my geography class up.
