    Last night I logged into UCAS and formally chose my firm (Exeter) and insurance (Edinburgh) universities. It's all feeling a touch too real now, and exams are feeling a lot more intimidating now that I have a very concrete goal (36 points). With 75 days to my first exam, I thought it would be sensible to make a thread on here and guilt myself into actually doing the revision I need to do!

    As a little background, I've applied to do History and International Relations at Exeter and History at Edinburgh.

    Here are my classes:
    HL: English Lit A, History and Philosophy
    SL: Maths Studies, French B
    (My school does the IB in a non-traditional way so I took my third SL, Environmental Science, last year and received a 6).

    I'm not really aiming to grow my grades after receiving the best report card of my life after first semester, but I'm planning on not letting them drop. In America (where I live) we have a thing called "senioritis" because almost everyone gets into uni before spring break. I'm trying to avoid "senioritis" and keep my motivation going until my last exam on May 18th!

    Senioritis, sounds interesting

    Good luck with 'growing' your grades :rave:
