    Hi, can the admin please move this to the grow your grades thread please? I don't know how lol.
    Anyway, I need motivation for me to do well in these exams I'm taking this summer, so I thought posting this here was a good idea.
    About me:
    I'm an international student. And I have a hard time studying without any motivation and with essay based subjects I feel I don't know how to study

    GCSEs:
    Maths: A
    Physics: A
    Psychology: B
    History: A
    Art: A
    Chinese: A*
    English: A*

    For AS level I'm currently studying History, Politics, Economics, and Chinese
    I want to get
    For A2 (because all my subjects apart from politics don't count this year) I want to get History A*, Politics A*, Economics A*, Chinese A*

    My current level grades are:
    History A, Politics B, Economics B, and Chinese B
    Also I got a D on my Politics mock lol ( it was right after Christmas break!) and I'm waiting to get my economics mock baclk
    I made this thread to stay focused, everyday I plan on writing down what I wanted to do and what I actually did for the day. Also, I'll ecord what marks I get in past papers and class assessments, and write a list of where I lost marks so that I can use this to improve!
    Cheers everyone
