    Hello everyone!

    So since I've been motivated by others to finally start revising, I shall use this topic to make daily updates on what I've accomplished, and what I want to achieve the following day.


    I am taking the following subjects and next to them are my mock exam results:

    English Language A*
    English Literature A*
    Mathematics A*
    Additional Mathematics A
    French A*
    German A
    Biology A*
    Chemistry A*
    Physics A*
    Geography A*
    History A*

    Exam board for each subject - CIE

    It is important for me to work hard in the last weeks (my exams start on the 3rd of May!) to ensure the best possible results for my future self


    I hope I can motivate others who are struggling to revise just like I was, and hey, we can always exchange some information

    It's been a long day! Woke up at 8 a.m. and started revising soon after 9.

    In the morning I have:

    - Finished notes and revision of E 1.6 and E1.7 in Geography (Which focused on Urban Settlements and Urbanisation)
    - Covered a topic on Metals in chemistry (including doing a past paper on this specific topic)
    - Written my notes on History about USSR's regime in Eastern Europe between 1948 to 1989

    In the afternoon I have:

    - Covered E 7 in Additional Maths on Straight Line Graphs
    - Finished E 2.3 and E 2.4 in Geography (Which focused on Coasts and Weather, as well as the different apparatuses used to measure it)

    Overall I am happy with today's results, and tomorrow I hope to do at least half as much as I did today (since I'm away from home for half the day, it might be hard to do exactly as much).

    I finally finished all of my revision on Population and Settlements in Geography, which is one of the three huge topics, and I have almost finished the second one - Natural Environment. My goal is to finish all of my Geography revision before the end of this week.

    Another day, another do-... study note Quite a lot of work done, especially in Geography.

    In the morning I have:

    -done nothing. *gasp* Yeah, I was at the dentist and couldn't study at all before 13:00. But not bad either way, I think.

    In the afternoon I have:

    - covered topic E2.5 in geography, which focused on different climates, factors that affect them, and adaptations of plants and animals in them. With that I have completely finished the second section in the geography syllabus, which leaves me with only one section to finish.
    - covered topic E 3.5 in Geography, which had to do with types of energy
    -covered topic E 3.6 in Geography, which focused on water scarcity and the issue that come with it
    - written my notes for the 10th (and last!) short story for my English Literature course
    - written a summary of all case studies in need to know for Geography
    - reviewed the topic in chemistry I studied yesterday
    - covered another topic in Physics, which was about Waves
    - taken a full English Language past paper 2 (got 92% ^^)

    Right now I'm taking a small break and then I'm moving on with maths and I will cover everything that will have to do with vectors.

    Overall I'm happy with today's achievements. The fact that I'm writing what I have done each day helps me see that I did in fact do a lot of things, and did not simply waste my time doing nothing.
