    Hi there student roomers!

    I've never blogged before meaning I'm no expert blogger but I am, like most of you (I'm guessing) wanting to achieve so much this year and get into my top choice of University!

    I don't want to ramble on and on so I'll get to it. I am in my second year of A-Levels studying:
    • English Literature (love it)
    • History (50/50)
    • Biology (loathe it)


    I am currently in the process of attending uni interviews for Primary Education and have so far received 2 offers! Basically, I need at least 280 UCAS points :/

    Sounds reasonable for all you smarty pants and brilliant scientists and mathematicians etc. out there right?

    For me that is a challenge. Last year was a bad(ish) year (academically anyway) and I ended up getting two E's. I will be resitting these along with my A2 levels and whilst I'm trying to stay positive, its scaring me.

    So maybe this grow your grades idea will help? Give me some motivation perhaps? I don't want to blog each time with no improvements to speak about and no personal achievements to mention.

    So what do I do?

    I'm going to attempt to try this blogging 'craze' and try to keep it up, even if no one is reading it because I'm hoping it will maybe de-stress me at the same time as motivate me.

    If your reading this be prepared for highs and lows, successes and failures good days and bad days because this is an account of someone who wants to get into uni and study something she is really passionate about. Whilst doing this I also want to savour every last moment with friends and family and show them how much I am going to miss them when I move away for uni.

    I've finished blabbing now! I do realise I've rambled on a bit aha but good luck to everyone out there and GOODNIGHT!

    Hi! It just doesn't seem to stick in my brain aha And even the things I do know, I struggle to apply my knowledge to the exam questions! Have you got any good revision tips?

    Yoga sounds like an option as well thanks!
