    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

    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)
