MY JOURNEY TO STRAIGHTA*- B GCSE



Aspirations
I am hoping to study politics, french, english literature and sociology at either latymer or woodhouse for A Level although my mum wants me to go to Henrietta Barnett which I have no interest in.

Subjects I study ( Mock Grade) {Predicted grade} [My aim]
Maths B B A
English Lit A A A*
English Lang D B A
French A B A
Sociology A A* A*
Geography C B A
Physics C B A
Chemistry A B A*
Biology - B already achieved
ICT - D2* L2M D2*

I am a firm believer that with my predicted grades I can get 1 or 2 grades higher than those in the real thing with REAL REVISION.

REVISION AIMS
My plan is to complete the whole of chemistry, physics, maths and IT by mid march so I can use april to focus on english, sociology and geography as those are the subjects I find easiest. (if you're wondering why I got a C in my geog mock since I find it easy its because I literally didn't revise at all I spent all of my time on maths since I'm crap at it)

RESOURCES
Chemistry & Physics - CGP revision books and past papers
Maths - Mathswatch and past papers
English Lit- My own notes and mind maps
Spoiler:
Show
English Lang - Im crap at this I have no idea what to do
French - Learn all AQA french vocab on memrise
Sociology - My exercise book/ revision booklet
Geography - Edexcel revision guide and workbook
ICT - teachict.co.uk

So I'm kind of disappointed in myself as I only did 50 minutes revision today however I still managed to get midway through c1.3. Had a mini panic attack when I realised exams are so close and I haven't finished properly revising for any one subject

Tomorrows goals:
Complete french booklet so I can read it every lunch time and after school
English: Make a poster of all the types of techniques authors used so it can be used in the literature exam & start on the english language coursework
Chemistry: Try and get up to at LEAST C1.5
Sociology: If theres time make a sociological research poster

I've also decided that when I go back to school at lunch times I will be reading mister pip and making more notes. I plan on doing one english lit past paper every weekend to give to my teacher to mark during the week

I STRONGLY recommend you to rethink your revision strategy. The best type of revision is chunks across all of your subjects, as you will most likely forget everything you did in March. At least spreading it out over all your subjects, there's only small amounts of each subject you've forgotten instead of whole exams.

Also build up your revision! Maybe one hour per day in March, two hours per day in April and then as much as you need in May, June and any holidays. Something Iike this would keep you on track, productive and no where near as tired. Part of the reason why I didn't do as well as hoped is because my strategy was off.

Thanks! I thought about that but my plan was to have flashcards and read over all my flashcards for chemistry maths physics and IT and ensure I did a past paper every week leading up to the exam so i don't forget anything whilst I learn sociology geography and english? Do you still think that wouldn't work?
