I wanted to create this thread so that I can track my progress and remind myself of my goals to stay motivated. Also I think this would be helpful for anyone in a similar position as me. I aim to study Medicine at UCL or University Of Birmingham. So firstly i'll you what i'm studying and my realistic targets.

Biology - A (did it in year 10, 5 UMS off an A*)
Physics - A*
Chemistry - A*
Maths - A*
English Language - A*
English Literature - A*
ICT - A
Geography - A*
Sociology - A*
French - A*
Religious Studies - A*

Now let's talk about revision :/
So I have been doing a good amount of work since January. Mainly Chemistry, Physics and Maths as my school is going super slow with it. However I am started to revise for my real GCSEs NOW ahhh.

These are my revision aims for half term:
- Finish C2
-Do a C1, P1 and P2 past paper
-Read and annotate Of Mice and Men
-Do 2 English Lit essays (homework)
-Revise geography theme 2
-Do a maths past paper and work on topics I struggle with.
-Learn new french vocab
-Revise Sociology 'Social Inequality' topic
-Revise RS 'Human Relationships' topic

Now down to how I revise:

Science - MyGCSEscience videos
Maths - practice questions
French - make flash cards on vocab
Geography- make revision notes (if anyone has a better way to revise geography please let me know)
Sociology - memorising dates and key terms/making flash cards.
RS- Past papers

So I hope this helped some of you and I hope you guys can help me too.
Have a great day

Hi, I'm aiming for similar grades to you and in the future hope to go into teaching.

English Lit- A (currently a long way off but I'm trying hard)
Maths- A/A*
Core Science- A*
Additional Science- A
Geography- A*
History- A/A*
Spanish- A*
BTEC Dance- Distinction
RE- B
Use Of Maths- A/A*

I already have a B in English Language and an A in English Media.
What exam board are you with for RE? My teacher is really bad and doesn't teach us everything (hence me aiming lower then everything other subject) so I was wondering if you would be able to help me at all?

Soo I'm slightly disappointed with the work i've done over half term, I was slightly ambitious but there's still 3 more days so I should be ok.

Going to try and have a really productive day to day, just made myself a smoothie, then i'll workout, take a shower and start revising. I'm going to do lots of p2,c1, and p1 revision posters and mind maps etc and I'm going to do all my science homework (which is a lot)
