This thread will detail my study patterns.

Current situation
I am completing examinations for 3 A Levels and 1 AS Level this year. I will be retaking C3 and C4 from A Level Maths, along with Unit 1 from A Level Economics.

The courses I am completing this year are as follows: A Level History, A Level Economics and AS Further Maths.

Goals
I will be aiming for 3 A*s in my A levels and an A in AS Further Maths.

Strategies
Mathematics
For the modules I am retaking, I intend to complete examination papers. I will complete all the Solomon papers for C3 and C4 before proceeding with the official exams.

For my Further Maths modules (FP1, S2, D1), I intend to start practising miscellaneous exercises in my textbook alongside past papers.

Economics
For economics, I intend to copy most of my notes into Anki, a flashcard software. This will allow me to memorise the key information.

To prepare for the exams, I intend to create essay plans electronically. I will include key facts that I will memorise to ensure that I can gain the maximum number of application marks.

As for the retake, I will follow the same revision strategy as for this year's modules.

History
For history, I intend to create essay plans electronically. I will include links between various paragraphs to facilitate the attainment of the top grades.

For my coursework, I will find more resources using Google Scholar and Wiley's resources. I will make notes and synthesise my arguments.

Updates
I will post an update before 23:00 every day. On weekends, I will post updates more frequently.

If anyone has any advice for me, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks.

I realised that I forgot to update this yesterday. I'll start this officially on Monday. My schedule today is quite disorganised as I woke up at 12:00.

I forgot to update it at the end of yesterday. I did not finish creating cards for all of Unit 4. I did create a plan for a history essay though.

Tasks for today:


  • Revise FP1, S1 and D1 (read through notes).
  • Finish homework for school.
  • Do work on history coursework.

I realised that I have not been updating this as frequently as I intended. Apologies. The past week has been a bit hectic and I have not had the time to update this in the morning. I will post more frequent updates this weekend.

Tasks for today:


  • Complete seven C4 Solomon Papers.
  • Master C4.


I have woken up later than I intended. Perhaps I need more sleep on the weekends.

I will revise the topics I am not confident with on Exam Solutions. Then I will review the papers I have done previously and consult notes for C4. After, I will begin completing the papers. I will adhere to the time constraints for the examination.

After completing 4 papers and working on my fifth one, I am finding that I am starting to get bored. I will do some reading for the next few hours before finishing off the fifth paper.
