    Hey! I know I am little late, but after reading many of the blogs, I decided to do my own to motivate myself.

    My past
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Well at GCSE i got A* A*AAAABB with an A* in Maths (194/200) and in Arabic (90/100) (I was 1 mark off an A* in Physics and 3 marks off in ICT) . Honestly at GCSE I was totally moving in the wrong direction, I had friends who didn't care about what results would they get so did I, until I have realized about 3 weeks before exams that I really want to study in the UK ( I am an international student) so I tried really hard in the last minute to cope with the subjects and ended up going to exams with just solving 3 past papers of each subject.

    I was surprisingly impressed with my results and decided that I really have to work hard in year 12 so I did and got 3As at AS-Level in Chemistry, Maths and Biology

    AS Exam Results
    Spoiler:
    Show
    As Maths A (268/300)
    C12 - 182/200
    S1 - 86/100

    As Chemistry A (266/300)
    Chemistry unit 1 - 110/120
    Chemistry unit 2 - 96/120 (honestly I was expecting lower because I finished the content two days before the exam and solved a bit of past papers)
    Chemistry unit 3 - 60/60

    As Biology A (249/300)
    Biology unit 1 - 92/120
    Biology unit 2 - 111/120
    Biology unit 3 - 44/60

    Although I didn't get such a high ums in As exams but I am really proud of what I got because I really worked hard to achieve the A's
    Present
    so I started year 13 thinking I just have to cope with my teachers and do well as in AS but SURPRISINGLY I have found out that my school don't offer A2 chemistry and Biology anymore due to lack of students (actually there were only two) so I decided that I have to study them on my own

    I have also decided that I need to do A2 maths in January to relieve some of the stress, and since my Maths teacher refused to give any help, I taught it to myself and did it
    January Exam Results
    Spoiler:
    Show
    C34 - 176/200 (2 marks off an A*) - Remarked but stayed the same - A
    M1 - 80/100 - A
    Total Maths: A
    Chemistry unit 4 - 79/120 - Will repeat it in June 2016 - C
    - Honestly I was disappointed in all of my exam results, I was expecting much higher but there is no excuses for what I've got, it just means I need to work harder if I want to achieve my dream!
    - I am not going to repeat C34 although I REALLY REALLY want to, but if I want to get two A* in Biology and chemistry, I have to let it go and focus on them because I am already far behind.
    - A bit depressed, a bit wanna quit but I have to step up and remember that it's my future I am chasing for!
    My classmates always criticized me and told me that this year I will feel how to get a U like, it has left a serious impact on myself so I want to prove to them and to myself that I am capable of doing it

    I want to get 3A* (After January results now I am aiming for A*A*A in Chemistry, Biology and Maths respectively) because my parents don't have the capability to pay the full international fees + accommodation + living costs so I need to get 3A* to guarantee that my firm university will offer me a scholarship as it's really competent and so I can live my dream of studying in the UK and be proud of myself for a once.

    I am so distracted and really scared that I won't achieve it so I made this blog to motivate me to follow my dream and not to give up!

    June 2016 exams - Results:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    A2 Edexcel IALChemistry - A
    • unit 4 - 110/120 A*
    • unit 5 - 92/120 B
    • unit 6 - 60/60 A* FULL UMS
    Total: 261 ( ums off an A*)
    A2 Edexcel IAL Biology - B
    • unit 4 - 102/120 A
    • unit 5 - 86/120 B
    • unit 6 - 46/120
    Total: 277 (3 ums off an A)
    Edexcel IAL Biology and chemistry involve the same content, same june exam dates, but since I am an international student I don't do practical laboratory exams in unit 6 for both subjects. Also, the questions are different

    I am sure you can do IT! Work hard, study hard! Trust Me! Your past or other people dont matter. You make your own decisions. People will always judge you but the most important lesson is ignore them as they dont know who you are! You may even not know yourself that well- try everything that you can and you will know what you are capable of!

    Personally, my parents are poor and could barely afford to buy fancy gadgets and could barely cope financially. Trust me. When I was younger, I was always in the hospital due to lots of illnesses and due to anorexia. After 7 years old, thats when i started gaining weight and my mum left to work abroad. During this time, this is when people judging me - saying that I am not going to get far in life as I am not smart enough. Considering that my mum was always been 1st honour during her education(high school, College) at the same school that I was attending. People somehow compared her to me.


    People judge me including my family members- saying I am too thick. Now, I live in London with my family, granted a scholarship in one of the leading university in the world, achieved 420 UCAS POINTs... and many more.

    YOU MAKE YOUR OWN DECISIONS ! Things will get better. Just work hard and you'll get there! Your hard-work will pay -off someday.


    Good Luck

    I did Edexcel for Biology, Chemistry and Maths so I don't know how AQA board differs but I am sure it includes the same revision techniques, for biology, I created my own notes for revision and memorised how the mark scheme wants the answer, to ease on you the lot of content, draw flow diagrams, link the content to things you like, hope it helps

    Thank you so much mate!! Your story has really motivated me to work harder, I was really desperate!
    I will surely try to ignore them as much as I can, and work on myself harder because I've been slacking this past week
    And hope one day, I'll get the scholarship as you did and achieve my dream

    Holy ****, how can your school just drop Biology and Chemistry if there are students committed to it after AS? That's absolute ********.

    I would just find a new sixth form honestly
