    Hi guys, so this is my first of hopefully many posts. I'll try to make them as interesting as I can. So here goes. My goals are to firstly pick my grades up off the floor where they currently reside and start getting D's and C's (hopefully higher) instead of my consistent shameful U's an E and a F. Secondly I am praying that I will be able to pass my mocks which loom over me like the darkest rain cloud. Luckily my biology mock is my last exam to do which is the 2nd of March. I know I have a long way to go (and my bio coursework to handle) but I'm hoping with your support I may just scrape through and get the pass I am so desperate for.

    Wow the complete opposite to what I do virtually! My school doesn't even offer Psychology, so I am at rather a loss with that one and I don't take the other two subjects either but I have been helping my friends revise...

    For biology I suggested drawing diagrams to represent processes (on flash cards) which particularly works if you are a visual learner!

    That's a shame because psychology is really interesting and yeah i do need to make some sort of revision cards/notes to help me.

    Check whch exam board because then you can find the specification (syllabus) and past papers. There are also some great websites once you know which board.
