    Well done on your mocks! What grades are you hoping for in the real thing? Best of luck with that, and I hope your interview went well!

    i need a C in English (been getting that all year as well as in my mocks) and maths (got a D - was 2 marks of a C becuase of silly mistakes, for example i forgot 3 numbers in a steam and leaf and i missed 3 marks for that)

    i need 2 more Cs to get my college offer also - i got a C in music, and a C in science in my mocks also which is usefull.


    i would like to get a C in my lens and light art course im doing, but im currently at a D and im improveing all of the time becuase im getting coursework done for it, and my fine art (at a E as of mocks) stuff right now.

    i would like to do higher science, and not the foundation i did in my mocks, but i dont know if i would be able too - i spoke to my teacher about it and she said maybe but im self teaching myself bio becuase i have two teachers and the teacher who teachers bio is not a good teacher)

    Well, these goals definitely seem achievable, and I do hope that you can do better than them as well!

    Heya,

    Just thought I'd catch up and see how everything's going for you How has your past week been? How are feeling about your subjects? Are there any that you're finding challenging? What's going well? :woo: Have you had any more thoughts about moving to higher science?

    I also see that you haven't verified your blog yet - the deadline for verification is next Monday the 16th; so let me know :woo:

    Lots of stuff has happened in the past week. as in, science classes being annoying and me getting kicked out of two lessons for trying to tell the teacher what was happening in her classroom ...


    nothing really is going well, which is a shame really.


    as for higher science, i dont know if i can do it now, becuase of the whole thing that keeps happening in my lessons means that im self teaching biology. however, i am determined to do atleast one higher paper if i can


    i keep on meaning to send the grades over, its just a matter of scaning them in and everything - been trying to get coursework done and its taking a while so it keeps on being pushed back XD gonna try and get them done by friday :P

    :eek2: Wow - what happened? Is there anyone else you can talk to about what's going on, like your form tutor or someone else...?

    The first step to achieving is positivity!

    We all know that you can do this, now you need to start believing it too!

    Perhaps making notes isnt the way that you revise, there are lots of different types of learners. You could try mindmaps, flash cards and other more visual methods. There are probably youtube videos for you exams too!

    What boards are you on? I may be able to help a bit (:

    Good luck and keep at it! Make sure that you find a method that works for you!

    Don't be silly, what you put in is what you put out, grades do not define you
