    Universities:
    • Durham: Offer for A*AA. :excited:Firmed!
    • University College London: Offer for A*AA. Declined
    • York: Offer for AAA. Insurance
    • Bristol: Offer for AAA. Declined
    Subjects:
    • English Language - AQA - Mock grade A - Predicted grade A*
    • English Literature - AQA - Mock grade A* - Predicted grade A*
    • History - OCR - Mock grade A - Predicted grade A*
    • General Studies- AQA - Mock grade A - Predicted grade A*

    I'm already quite close to my targets, but I don't want to let that make me complacent! You can check out the methods I use to revise HERE, and I'll be updating this blog every few days with my revision, homework, and any test results I get I'm also going to be resitting one of my AS History exams, because I got an E despite continually getting full marks throughout the year

    :banana: I hope everyone else achieves their targets :banana:

    Never knew you were into law... But bloody hell those are good mock grades :eek:

    I should probably stop looking at these threads because they just make me feel worse about myself

    Thanks :jumphug: It all depends on my coursework grades too, I hope I can keep them high to pull off the pressure in my exams :yep: I know I'll have a lot more to revise too, especially for History - we'd only done half of the course so we had half of the amount of information to learn

    Seeing this kind of blog is so motivating! I'm aiming to go into Law as well, hopefully at York, and I was similarly surprised by a bad AS module, though in Literature not History. Hopefully it'll all go better this time around though it's all quite terrifying, particularly the amount to learn in History and the fact my teacher still hasn't covered a lot of the course... Those are great mock grades, and really high predictions - I'll definitely follow this blog, and good luck with getting the grades!

    York was so lovely when I visited, and I met some great people at my interview
    Good luck with your resit, I hope this blog helps

    Update 22/02/2016

    For my first night, I'm going to give you all a little insight into my homework and revision scheduling, and my stationery :awesome: Tonight I've been doing some more research for my History coursework, an editing the first draft of my English Language coursework, so I don't have any exciting revision to show you... But I do have my bullet journal :woo:

    • A bullet journal is like an analogue way of scheduling and making to-do lists, like you would on a phone, but in a lovely bespoke handwritten version! You can look up all about them and how they work here on the website I use a slightly adapted version, without a month overview page and with slightly different symbols to suit me
    • On this picture of last week's bullet journal, you can also see my Muji pens, which were delivered today :excited: they're absolutely lush gel ink pens (these ones are super fine 0.38 points), in the colours black, red and light blue.
    • The notebook that I'm using for my bullet journal is a lovely new one that I got as a Valentines present, and you can find it on the Paperchase website here
    What's your favourite way of organising your tasks for the day? What stationery do you use?

    I'm a bit of a perfectionist with anything to do with organisation and making things look nice I have far too many fine liners, felt tips, highlighters and coloured pens in my pencil case :giggle:

    Thanks for the quote! Your handwriting is so neat! Definitely going to look into the bullet journal as my organisation/revision can be a bit of a mess. I can see this thread as quite inspirational

    Thanks!

    I find my bullet journal so helpful, plus you can lay it out however you want and add useful things to you - like I have a little bit to make note of how much water I drink every day because keeping hydrated is so important when revising!
    I hope it helps :excited:
