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
