    Hello Everyone :wavey:
    Welcome to my study blog!

    A bit about myself:
    My name is Dan and I am currently in my last year of sixth form, I've taken the long route after failing year 12 first time round, getting 3 D's and a U grade. I'm currently studying Biology, Chemistry, History and Mathematics in order to pursue biochemistry at university. The reason I am writing this blog is to try and motivate myself to work harder and get all of my revision completed before exam season in June.

    My Current situation:

    AS grades:

    Biology: 224 UMS points.
    Chemistry: 226 UMS points.
    History: 176 UMS points.
    Mathematics: 245 UMS points.

    What I need to achieve 4 A grades:

    Biology: 256 UMS points.
    Chemistry: 254 UMS points.
    History: 144 UMS points.
    Mathematics: 235 UMS points.

    My mock results (Uh-oh):

    Biology: A
    Chemistry: C
    History: C
    Mathematics: B

    Time to get to work I think!

    My method of success:
    I have realised over the years, that I am an extremely disorganised person (it just took me 45 minutes to find my AS grades for this blog ). So I have decided to try and switch things up by going digital. Apart from the thousand and one trees I'm bound to save this should help me organise my notes and ensure that I have access to them 24 hours a day. It also means that I am forced to review all of my notes after the lesson as I type them up and upload them to cloud which is in itself a revision activity.

    Follow my progress:
    If you are interested in seeing how I am doing I will be updating this blog with weekly reports, but as well as that I'll be creating a publicly viewable Google drive folder with all of my plans and notes in, hopefully this will encourage people to give some feedback or at the very least help someone else out who didn't bother making their own notes.

    Google Drive linky: Coming soon.

    Next post: For those of you that may be interested and for my own benefit I am going to be uploading an exact plan of how I am going to be tackling my revision (because clearly just uploading copies of all my notes won't get me an A grade). By the time I post this the Google drive link should be up and running as well.
