HEYALL

In the summer, like many other year 11s, I'll be taking my GCSEs (well, iGCSEs but whatever) and I'm hoping to do as well as possible, and that this blog might help me track my progress and maybe help others, since we're all in the same kinda boat :yy:
Any questions, tips or anything just reply or PM me if you like

GCSEs I took early:
  • MathsuuuA*
  • SpanishiiiiA*
Mock Results and Predictions:
  • Chemistry 67%yyyyyAuuA*
  • Biology 73% yyyyyyyAuuA*
  • Physics 83% uuuyyii A*iiiA*
  • French 88% s*ymmii A*iiiA*
  • Chinese 65%eyeiiyyyBuuA (but teacher expects me to get A* idk y lol)
  • History 73% yyyyyiiiiiiAuuA*
  • Drama 91% m[diiiiiii i A*iiiA*
  • FSMQ 88%yyyyyyyyiiAuuA (top grade you can get in Add Maths)
  • English Lit 80%yyyyyiAuuA*
  • English Lang 78%%iiiAuuA*
So as you may notice I need to work on Chinese most, otherwise with enough revision I'm hoping I'll do as well as everyone seems to think I will

~HEREGOES~

currently writing out Chinese verbs, then I'm going to go over every topic area and for each one have;
  • 5 verbs that relate to the topic
  • 5 specific words for specific vocabulary
  • 5 sentences for every verb including the vocab and more (if possible)
  • at least 2 extended sentences with complex structures
This is really helpful for oral practice, but if you write the characters as well as pinyin it's good for writing / reading too

EDIT: here we have the verbs (+some composite verbs which I gave up writing out because I know most of them already and I Thought doing sentences or looking at topic specific vocal would be more productive )

Basically continuation of the Chinese revision I outlined in the last post

so also for oral help here's some notes I've written, including time expressions and weird diagrams for 'health and fitness' vocab (idk why I did this I felt like doodling hahaha)

Morning! ( may or may not have just awoken...) Today I'm going to try and totally do and finish some things!
  • Personal Statement (for the 6th form I'm applying to)
  • Write a long list of possible work experience / part time jobs I could do in summer, with Emails websites and telephone numbers ready to contact
  • Not get sidetracked by Netflix.... or my guitar......
  • Go through Chinese sentence pattern booklet (all the way from the front to the back...!) writing out the most useful ones in pinyin
  • English coursework final draft :yy:
So those are things I 1000% want complete do today, there are other things, but if I do them I'll post 'em as a surprise

mmsome things I did yesterday...

  • 我爱我的猫因为我觉得她很可爱
  • 明天我安排一个半日工作â 昨天在公园我帮助朋友找他的狗â 在我看来猫比狗好
  • 昨天我吃很多饭,先我吃了吃了面条,后来吃了海鲜,然后吃了蛋糕。我很高兴因为我最喜欢的才是蛋糕!蛋糕比面条和海鲜最好的。
  • 我认为看电视比看电影好因为电视节目多少。
  • 我做很多运动,下个星期我在一个比赛竞争。
  • 以后毕业我想继续学习在一个大学。
  • 我想参加化学聚乐部因为我很努力。
  • 上个周末我参加比赛。
  • 因为我最喜欢的地方是博物馆,所以我爱参观伦敦,参观英国的博物馆。
  • 生日我吃很多巧克力。
  • 周末我跟朋友一起喜欢出去。

yeah it may not seem like much (because it isn't tbh) I got pretty into my procrastination yesterday which is what I'm going to try and avoid today!! I really liked putting the sticky notes with vocal from each topic up on my wall because it meant that when I practiced speaking and didn't remember a word I could look up and boom! Makes revision a bit more fun lol.
Also I have been finding it hard ~generally~ to start something and then finish it, which is what I'm going to emphasise doing today! Wish me luck!

possibly, although I don't know. My school chose to do CIE (Cambridge version) iGCSE for Chinese. I'm probably just bad at chinese tbh hahaha

Oh I did Edexcel. Everything was multiple choice - only real work was coursework. You seem to be better than I was at Chinese - I was never able to write it, I just used a dictionary and copied characters from there xD

Good luck for the rest of your GCSEs. I really need to start on some work myself.

Wow really well done - I wish my school had offered Chinese! I did after school classes but they never offered it as a GCSE

It's great to see you aiming so high and keep it up - I take German, which is probably much easier than Chinese by a long way but if you want to see what I am up to you can do:
