    Hey everyone, I currently take Art, Maths, History and Product Design in AS. For my first set of mocks, I did not do as well as I hoped to:

    Maths: B
    Art: B
    History: C
    Product Design: D

    These grades (especially the last two) have given me the motivation to do even better in my next mock exams starting March 14th. My grades to aim for in the mocks are AABB! In the exams in May/June, I'm aiming for 4 A's. I will be posting every day about my productivity in terms of revision.

    If you're reading this then you're fab - don't give up and do not let anyone hinder your road to success!!

    All the best,

    Matt

    I did pretty badly in my mocks, BCCU is was what I got at the time, for English lit, history, sociology and philosophy. I improved by doing a lot of essays and taking advice of teachers on what I should do to sit exams successfully.

    In the end I got 3 A's for my AS results and no-one expected that, considering my mocks and also GCSE results.

    Revise hard around a few months before exam time.

    All you can do is your best! A friend once told me, "It doesn't matter about what the results will be, it's about how you get them - the process!"

    Be confident that you will do well!!!

    For maths - I'm practicing over and over again the things that I do not understand or topics I need to consolidate

    PAST PAPERS save your life btw

    the modules I do are C1, C2 and D1 (Edexcel)

    For history - I am creating flashcards & doing the 'brain dump' exercise occasionally where I get a blank piece of paper and use a time limit such as 5 minutes to see how much I can remember on a certain topic or the whole course

    I am also planning out essay questions which really helps
    I study Russia: Lenin to Yeltsin 1917-91 and The GDR Reunification: 1949-90

    I got my C2 paper back and I got a B2 (mid-B) - 52/75

    I had my C1 paper today also, I should be receiving grades/marks/percentages back in the next few days or if not, after Easter holidays!!

    REMEMBER: Never give up because you do not know how close you are to succeeding.
