    Hello there. I FAILED my mocks.BADLY. However, this has given me the kick in the backside that I needed and Iwant to turn this around ASAP. The subjects I take are Maths, Further Maths,Chem and Biology.

    Here's what I got in the mocks(With 0 REVISION)
    D C1-Ithought(before the exam) that I could ace C1 without revising being a 'Further Mathematician' however I forgot how to apply all the equations on section B andhence I ended up with a D.

    C S1 - Poor. Expected to dobetter.

    D Biology- Terrible, JustTerrible. This is probably my toughest subject as there is unbelievable amountof content that you have to just memorise.

    E Chemistry - Abit of a surprise as I was expecting to do better.

    E Further maths FP1 - Yeaaaah.No revision whatsoever. Was sort of expecting it tbh.

    Rightthen. As you can see, I have done poor. Extremely poor. At the end of AS iwould liked to have achieved AABC. A's in Maths and FM. I don’t mind whatsubjects the B or C would come in.
    I’mgoing to blog my journey as I have seen others do and hope to motivate myselfand inspire others to show that you can turn it around in this small amount oftime. I just hope I can do it!
    I’ll beposting every couple of days or when I get the chance/ feel I have made someprogress. Feel free to ask any questions.
