    Literature was my weakest subject as I was tracking an A/B at first. My coursework got an A so I knew I had to work hard for an A*. So I made notes for every character and theme in novels and did past paper questions to revise. I tried to be original. So I managed the 60/60 in paper 1 and 75/80 in paper 2 which got me a mid/high A*
    Wow well done though, did you memorise your quotes? Because i have to and we're not allowed the text books , how did you memorise the quotes and thanks for the help

    Yes I memorised some quotes but you should already know key quotes! Memorising just involves writing it again on flashcards then on the other side the answer. Make it interactive!

    Reviews on topics are just simple read through's as they've all been already learn't revise means literally writing notes. All notes have been done a long time ago so it's on the review stage
    • History Paper 1 review topic 2 completed on Peacemaking. Only one more topic review left.
    • History Paper 2 topic 2 past paper done. Will ask teacher to mark as it's subjective.
    • Chemistry C6 review done.
    • Past paper's done on C6. 16/21- A* scaled up. Weaknesses, detecting ions. Overall score for C4C5C6 ( common past paper 2014 done on 456) 51/60- A* high. Will read through weaknesses again.
    • PE theory revision done up to Respiratory system specification points. Only 2 specification systems left.
    • PE theory past papers done on everything to review content 33/39- A* scaled up.
    • French Vocabulary revision done on Work and Education.
    • French listening and reading work done. Reading question 3/4. Listening paper 2/4. Moving onto the AQA endorsed listening and reading booklets to strengthen knowledge. French news also observed.
    • Maths work on basics like angles, circles, and simple proof.
    In general very happy as I got quite a lot of work done and it's fitting with my review schedule so that I can move onto new topics on the 8th April. As long as this continues, I am definitely on track to getting everything fully done.
