    Probability A; the lectures seem to consist of brutalising easy problems with lots of set notation and convoluted methods.
    nice
    Loads probability and loads of pure
    I hope you are enjoying Warwick

    My 9am lecture tomorrow is generally useless, so if I am not well rested enough I can sleep till 11:30 if needs be..
    Same. In all probability, I'm going to deregister for the module.

    This looks great- your Grand Plan is very detailed, which is always a good start

    (Aiming for 85%+ in further maths - I had to force my way into doing it because my school doesn't teach it. With only a few hours a week worth of further maths lessons if I achieve this I’d be so proud of myself! )
    I love how dedicated you are that you forced your school to do this!! Good for you you're going to smash this, I can already tell!

    Chemistry: Trying to get the rest of my chemistry homework done currently, whilst typing up notes for it.

    Physics: Later I plan to go over progressive and stationary waves and typing up some of my own notes for it.
    Update: I haven't had time will plan to do later today.

    Further Maths: Tomorrow I will do all the questions in my FP1 book on alpha and beta, complex numbers, matrices and trigonometry.

    Progress Update: homework completed plus revision notes made
    Physical - 3.1.7 Oxidation, reduction and redox equations topic done and dusted
    Inorganic - 3.2.2 Group 2, the alkaline earth metals topic revised and made notes

    It was 6 hours since i last posted what i wanted to do today or should i say yesterday. I take far too long!!!

    Note to self: stop taking long breaks in between

    Preparing for the Cambridge shadowing scheme tomorrow A kind of valid excuse for the next few days to do no work.
    But I will be bringing some further reading to do on the train and possibly whilst I am in Cambridge!!!

    Stuff Matters by Mark Miodownik - brilliant so far, need to finish it
    Seven Brief Lessons on Physics by Carlo Rovelli - light reading to do whilst in Cambridge
    The Unknown Universe by Stuart Clark - a Christmas present to myself but I've barely had time to read it (another possible train read)

    Cambridge update for today...
    Formal at St Johns was amazing
    Speaking to mentor and her friends about what it is like at university.
    They all are soooo nice!!!

    Definitely will have motivation after the scheme to try and get 4As and possible a 90+% UMS average so I have a shot at Cambridge. The shadowing has already persuaded me to possibly aim for Cambridge.

    31/01/2016 - 12:30 to 18:48 (with two roughly 1 hour breaks in between & dinner which took an roughly an hour). So a 3 hours and a bit worth of textbook work and skimming chem guide.
    Chemistry - finished notes on 3.1.6 Chemical equilibria, Le Chatelier’s principle and Kc, again stuff I haven't covered in class but I like to get ahead. I have now pretty much finished my notes on physical chemistry. Will need to redraft again before I start condensing. And of course practice doing calculations.

    Plans for later...
    Maths - Going to start C2 Chapter 3 - Trapezium rule and go through all the exercises. Should take me a few hours worth of solid work to get through most or nearly all the questions.

    I see your point but TSR does not necessarily hinder your performance

    All I wanted to say was that it is a form of distraction. After May or whenever the exams end, he or she can resume using this website. I'm addicted myself but I'm stopping temporarily starting tomorrow.

    Maths - finished chapter 3 on trapezium rule and done over 50 questions integration in AQA C2 Textbook (most just easy plug and chug that takes a minute tops)

    Further maths - finished chapter 4 in m1 revision guide (31 questions) on newton's second law.

    - Hope to finish chapter 5 questions tonight on connected particles.

    Physics
    - watch some videos on youtube on waves and revise

    Chemistry
    - read over equilibria, kinetics and energetics.
    - Attempt chem1 past paper tonight under exam conditions.

    02/02/16 (RELAX DAY)

    University of Manchester Graphene and 2-dimensional Materials (Coursera)
    I registered for this course last year and it has very recently just started.
    Going to try and understand some stuff even though most of it is completely beyond me.

    Chemistry - Marked CHEM 1 June 2013 Paper (HOMEWORK thanks miss)
    58/70 - 83% (A) - 86 UMS
    Improvements to be made - revise coordinate bonding, fractional distillation of crude oil products and uses, forgot catalyst in a catalytic conveter (iridium, platinum, rhodium, palladium), when you talk about ionic bonding actually explain what it is, read the question properly
    Thoughts - okay, need to work on wording things correctly.
    I hate the way my teacher is giving us relatively recent past papers to do. I don't want to waste them especially since from personal experience I tend to do a lot better nearer exam time.

    This sounds like a cool way to set yourself up for success. I, too, am aiming for 4 A's in my AS exams in June, so I can apply for Oxford (pfft) and Warwick. However, unlike you, I am doing humanities instead of sciences. Either way, good luck, you deserve it!

    Feelings - demotivated and tired.
    What I plan to do tonight...
    Maths - Starting maths homework on chapter 3 trapezium rule and get it done for tomorrow.
    Further Maths - Finish chapter 5 in mechanics 1 revision guide I planned to finish it a few days ago.

    Its nearly the weekend! I actually can't wait because that is when I am most productive.
    - I plan to redraft my physical chemistry notes on Saturday and start writing notes.
    - I am also going to make myself an exam timetable & plan the amount of past papers I am going to do per day.
    - Start typing up physics notes which should take me a lot less time compared to chemistry
    - Finish all questions in m1 revision guide
    - Do just the hard questions in chapter 1, 2, 3 and 4 in FP1 textbook
    - Re-watch all my further maths lectures from the FMSP and have a look at Integral's resources

    Saturday yay
    Slight change of plan. I managed to write extra notes from the AQA approved textbook which I barely use. Physical out of the way so far.

    Currently skimming through Inorganic.
    Will also make proper notes on Organic tonight from it. I CAN DO THIS!!
    Hopefully I will have enough time to put together and rewrite all my notes as well even if it kills me. No early bed for me tonight.

    Tommorrow Ive decided to get through as many AQA C1 papers as I can. Hopefully full marks in most of them!
    And finish off all the mechanics revision guide questions.

    Physics I will neglect until half term.
