How much do you improve from Year 10 to Year 11? Watch
Also, is doing some resits for general end-of-topic tests a bad thing? Just did an exam a few weeks ago and got a B and was a mark off an A. Really awful exam that for some reason, probably my incompetence, I couldn't do. As a result, I sat a different paper on the same topic and got full marks. Is that a bad thing? I don't think a B is bad, but shouldn't I have got it right first time?
I think the key is to realise to do past papers, revise little bits throughout the year (not just stuff you're learning about now but from the previous units) and get a good night's sleep the nights before.
If you are revising in year 10 and not getting the grades you probably never will.
then I got a high A* in my year 11 mock
but that's the only subject which has significantly changed
I just sat a Geography exam that my entire year sat. I think I did pretty well however, my teacher is really tough on marking and all the others are not. In the long run, I'll probably develop more as in the exam I will have a really high level of detail however, I think all my year will get better marks even though they had worse answers just because of the difference in marking. Will this hold me back in the future when it makes me look worse than others even though my answers were much better? I admit, my answers now have ridiculous amounts of detail, but it just never seems to be enough.
Just a general question. All stories welcome. Assuming that for your actual exams you have already done mocks and quite a lot of revision, how much improvement do you see from Year 10 to Year 11?
