    This is the TSR equivalent of a gladiatorial battle royale. Good luck in the competition entrants, may the odds be ever in your favour.

    So, your opening post may be about what grades you have and what your aims are, maybe how you are going to achieve those...

    Then as and when you feel you are making some progress, or just want to keep everyone updated, you can do additional posts about it, with new grades, things like that!

    let me know if you would like any more suggestions with it!

    Great! I will do. I've just posted my blog. I have also emailed the email which was sent to me on PM to confirm my grades.

    Thank you.

    Hey everyone
    I've quoted in everyone who's expressed an interest in entering the competition, just to give you all an update and a bit more info

    - Some of you might already have had a PM from Puddles asking to verify your grades. Don't worry if you haven't had one yet, she'll be back in the office on Monday to do some more! She'll send you a message asking for verification/ proof of your current grades
    - Even if you haven't been sent a message yet, you can still start your blog! Go to the Grow Your Grades forum and click 'post new thread'. In the post you should give us a brief outline of background info, where you're at currently and where you want to be by the end of the competition
    - Keep updating your blog with how you're getting on with your plans. You can also ask for help in your blog, and our study help team will give you tips
    - Discuss on here anything else you want to know about the competition, or other people's aims, or just generally chat!

    PM me, mobbsy or Puddles for more information (or ask any of our lovely study help team that you see around this thread )

    Best of luck everyone! :woo: (Please let me know if you wish to be taken off this quote list and no longer wish to participate in the competition)

    Got an awesome list of blogs (you can easily check out the titles in the box in the OP!) and it's great to see so many of you entering!

    Puddles is verifying grades today, and the verified blogs should have the Verified tag next to them!

    Keep up the awesome work, and good luck!

    I'm not really growing my grades but I am studying for an RHS horticulture certificate in my spare time. Apparently the equivalent of another GCSE. I want to get distinctions in it. Am I allowed to enter or is it against the rules if I don't have any grades to go on yet? :confused:

    My first exams are on Mon 9th Feb :eek:

    Hey! What I have been doing is light revision from around Christmas time, so about 2-3 hours a day - some days, I won't lie I've hardly done any and then yes I have felt extremely guilty but as February is here now, I am going to start my proper revision, I am going to aim for about 4-5 hours a day, with the odd day doing no revision just as a break. However, it really depends on you as a person, so for me, it takes a while to learn everything, so a few months of proper revision will be really beneficial, especially as I am resitting my A2 biology modules and there's tonnes to learn for that . For others, they may only need a couple of months/ a few weeks for revision.
    For revision itself, I would definitely recommend flash cards and mindmaps (particularly useful if you're a visual learner) and of course lots of past papers
    Hope this helps and good luck for your exams!
