    I'm finding flash cards to be extremely effective. I've started making them electronically using Quizlet. Anyone else use flash cards?
    I use Quizlet a lot for French revision, I find it really useful!

    Will our grades have to be verified. If so, how do we do this? Would you want (for me, an A2 student) my AS results or my mock A2 results...?

    It's a known problem that will be fixed tomorrow.

    I'm glad!
    Are there still any problems you're aware of? I'm still not able to post a new thread.

    Prizes haven't been decided yet so suggestions can be made, but last year we had days out vouchers along with Paperchase vouchers.
    (Original post by Black Rose)
    It depends on the CT (Community Team) who decide.
    We're hoping the prizes will be bigger and better than last year - they'll also be spot prizes along the way. Just waiting to see how much we can spend!

    Have you tried the flashcard tool on TSR? It's here. Would love to know what everyone thinks of it.

    We also have thousands of flashcard sets as well. You can filter by board, level and so on. Any use?

    Quick question probably sounds dumb but if one of the subjects is art could we post pictures of the stuff we do?

    From what I was last told, this won't need to be done anymore.

    The way the prizes are being issued is very different too this year - have a look at The Learn Ranger's post above.

    You're more than welcome to if you like! If the work is for something like coursework though, just be a bit vary of posting in case it gets caught or plagiarism or something.

    Yeah; this competition helps me a lot. Even if creating the blog itself doesnt help you, reading those of others might as it helps to motivate you.

    We're hoping to release details of prizes later today or tomorrow - just finalising the details. Bigger than last year!

    We hope it motivates everyone by getting them to think about how they study most effectively.

    The plan is to update it at least once a week, more likely 2 times a week.

    Hello, I am not able to create a new thread at the moment. Is this because the competition has already closed?

    I want to start a blog to document my progress towards my A2 year exams this year

    Many thanks

    Hi

    Really sorry but the Grow your Grades blogging competition isn't taking any more entries.

    But don't be concerned, there is a blogging area on TSR that you can use for this.

    Good luck with your exams (and your blog).

    It's too late to enter, but you can still make a blog over in our Blogs forum, or ask your questions in Study Help
