    Great Well done well i've some Chemistry notes and I've just done a past paper on C3. Now i am going to look at my weaknesses and attempt another past paper

    Do you update every evening on what you've done during the day or do you just do it in the morning ?
    Sounds like good revision.

    Yeah, every evening, usually at 9-10pm I update what I've done for the day and then what I want to complete the next day.

    So, recently I have had my report back. On the whole it was pretty good and almost on par with my original predictions.

    My Report Grades/Original Predictions:

    Biology - A/A*
    Business Studies - A*/A*
    Chemistry - A*/A*
    Computer Science - A/A
    English Language - A*/A*
    English Literature - A*/A*
    Further Maths - A*/A*
    Geography - A*/A*
    German - A/A
    Maths - A*/A*
    Physics - A*/A*
    Religious Studies - A/B

    For my report I achieved 8A* and 4A
    My original predictions were 9A*, 2A and a B

    However, as I aspire to study Economics at the likes of Cambridge and Princeton, I am aiming for the very best grades at GCSE as well as A-level.

    This means I want to change the 4 A's in my report to A*'s

    I am documenting my revision each day for the easter break and most likely all the way through to my exams for my own reference and if possible to motivate others to revise. There are 7 weeks and 1 day until my first exam (Religious Studies - Unit 1), so I feel now is the right time to start revising older topics and familiarising myself with the specification of each subject again.

    My revision contains two key components

    1) Subject Specification
    2) Past Papers

    My revision guidelines

    The Subject Notebook - I will be writing out the full specification of each subject in a notebook (All of the content which exam boards require us to know for the exam). Each notebook will be colour-coded to highlight: General Info, Important Info, Titles and Diagrams. This will be useful for revision closer to the exam period as everything will be there for reference

    Past Papers - I have already printed all of the available past papers for each of my subjects. There are roughly 4-6 papers for each subject. I aim to complete all of them and if not all, then as many as possible. Getting to know the type of questions the exam board will ask as well as how to answer these questions will be vital as, after all, there are only so many questions which can be asked about the specification.

    There are only two components of my revision however I feel they can provide me with good preparation for the exam as well as the knowledge and technique to achieve an A* in all of my subjects.

    So, from here on in I will be documenting the revision I do each day to remind myself of the goal I am working towards and at the same time try to motivate others to revise and prepare for what is the culmination of two years of hard work.

    Good luck with revision to all

    Interesting, you are in the same position as me. Do you think it is possible to learn the content of a whole syllabus in the time we have left, while also practising past papers, and still obtain all A*?

    Well, if you've payed attention in class, then a lot of it is just refreshing your memory of what the spec entails. The notebooks are an effective way of doing that for me. It shouldn't really take long. If you can do a couple of past papers each day (not that hard), then you can be set in 3 or 4 weeks.

    Wednesday 30th March

    Today - Woke up at 9am today to finish off my Business write-up. Then went on to start Chemistry, which I made decent progress on. I finished Business at roughly 11am then went on to Chemistry. I had about an hour on Chemistry before going to the gym. After the gym, I did not make much progress to what I had done before. However, I am still confident of finishing tomorrow as I am nearing the end of C1.

    Tomorrow - I plan to finish Chemistry tomorrow, which may take the majority of the day, and then may make a start on Computer Science. Computer Science should not be very time-consuming, so I'm looking forward to making a start on it.

    No, I just write up everything on the spec from the exam board website and if the spec is too vague in some areas, then other websites and class notes.
    Oh that's good, so you just use the AQA website and write everything down?

    I wouldn’t say Science is a hard subject it’s just memorising things especially Biology which takes a lot of memorising to do. I agree it is time consuming and at the moment I am doing B3 and it’s hurting my head because there is so much to learn like the heart and blood.
