Finally doing this to stop my terrible procrastination.(Anyone else feel the irony?)

Okay, so basically, this year hasn't gone off to a great start.

SO FAR:

Geography - B
Biology - C (Resit 99%)
Psychology - D (Got 1/12 on last question, kicking myself)
Chemistry - U (No excuse, literal flop)

Really disappointed with how the mocks turned out, usually, I get the highest grades without revising, but not in this case.

I had some family problems during the weeks of my mocks, however, I have not mentioned this to my school as I don't want special treatment. <<This is no excuse for the grades I got.

WAYS TO IMPROVE:
Attending chem tuition(however i went before the mocks)
Psychology mock on Thursday(Going to learn 3 topics a day until then)
Writing up all notes into Anki(virtual flashcard thing)
80 marks of chemistry past papers a week
I'm welcome to do anything else

If anyone is reading this, have a good day!

Can relate to having family problems during A-levels. Not very fun :console: even though you haven't posted a huge amount about yourself (not that you need to) I can tell that you're a pretty cool person, one that I'll be rooting for and I look forward to reading this blog

You're doing pretty difficult subjects as well. I'm not sure if revision guids exist for the reformed A-levels but those definitely helped me for the sciences.

Good luck! :rave::rave:

Ah, just be careful that you don't get the old ones just to find out that they aren't really relevant.

But yes, practice makes perfect. Writing out things from the textbook and thinking about them, maybe youtube videos focused on A-level topics if you feel stuck.

UPDATE
Haven't done much since my last post, but that's going to change today.

Stuff that's happened:
Psychology mock moved to Tuesday 23/2/16
Chemistry test on Thursday 25/2/16
Parents evening :eek: - Was decent, but they sugarcoat everything and it's a waste of time. However Biology gave me a thrashing
End of topic test for immunology (biology) - C

Today:
Start doing 80 marks worth of chemistry past papers
Do as many legacy papers as possible
Finish biology homework
Finish writing up notes for psychology
Not really sure how to revise for geography...:confused:

Rest of the week:
Complete all legacy papers for biology
Complete papers from other exam boards for chemistry
Do a couple of psychology past papers
Make flash cards for geography


That's all i've got for now, sorry it isn't as colourful as some of the other posts. Didn't really want to spend time doing that when I could be revising...(Sorry if that's blunt)
