    It's a problem many people are having, hopefully will be sorted soon so that you can make a thread. In the meantime you could plan your OP and think about your aims and strategies to get there.

    Hi! Would I be able to enter please? I'm in my second year of A-Levels and want to go to university but I'm recovering from a breakdown, an ED and an abusive relationship and doing four subjects so I really need to work my butt off and could use so motivation and guidance!
    Of course you can!

    I'm in year 10 at the moment and feel doing this would probably be a good idea, as I seem to have picked the subjects which give you the most homework . I tend to lose motivation when I know it's going to take me so long to finish everything and often end up having to do homework during the week. Also, there are a few of my subjects in which I would like to improve my grades, as I really want to do well in my GCSEs.

    I'd like to enter so I can track my revision progress each week to keep a sort of journal as to what I'm doing to help myself with what I'm missing and what I need to study on for the following week. Aiming for A*A*A* in Mathematics, Applied Business, and Applied ICT, need AAB (A in maths) to get into university, the rest is just for fun I enjoy learning the subjects and the concepts behind how to do things, I don't really focus on the outcome but more the process in which I'm studying.

    Aim: Get into SOAS (Offer 8 points above my IB predicted)

    Currently Predicted:
    HLs
    History 6
    Theatre 5
    Literature 5
    SLs
    Biology 4
    Math's Standard 4
    Dutch B 4

    Due to extenuating circumstances (I got a part time job with very tempting pay which completely sucked the life out of my academics) I was predicted a 29. Very strong personal statement, got offers from the likes of Holloway, Queen Mary's, Birmingham and SOAS. Got an offer for 37 (6/6/6/) and hell naw if I'm going to let a little bookworming get in the way of achieving the 37! Would like to register ^_^

    I'll just do some C2 work to kill an hour and hopefully will come back to it working!

    Do you mean you can't progress if you don't get Cs in everything??? That's tough but it's amazing what can be achieved with effort and motivation.

    Balancing out all that homework and getting it all done to the best of your ability is really hard. But stay on top of it and you may well see your grades begin to grow.

    Your focus on HOW you study as well as what you study will really help you in the future - and GyG is just the place to write about it.

    Sounds like achieveing what you need in your IB will be a challenge but you have a great positive attitude. Good luck!

    I'll participate I'll create a thread when the issue is fixed.

    I'm an A2 student and plan to study History and Politics at either LSE or York. I need AAA but would ideally like to get A*A*A (and maybe an A*/A in my EPQ).

    I kind of get by by doing the absolute minimum which I really need to stop. I need to break my lazy habits

    I think it's because she had already made a GYG blog last year, so it allowed her to post..

    I'd like to join too I'm aiming for A*A*A* in A2 History, English Lit and French. I'm hopefully going to be studying History at Cambridge or Manchester next year so I probably need to get revising, this seems like a really good way to stay motivated (and not keep procrastinating my History coursework!)
