    Hi all!

    I've seen a lot of other people do Growing My Grades threads and it looks like it really helps so I thought I'd give it a go. I did start one a month or two ago but it got put into the 2016 Grow Your Grades thread so I've made a new one for 2017! I've never done one before and don't really know if there's a suggested format etc so if you have any suggestions perhaps just inbox me or reply below? Thanks

    Okay, so I'm in Year 13 doing maths, physics, chemistry and biology at A-Level and I'm studying over the summer because I'm trying to up my grades from Cs to A*s. I want to go on to study veterinary medicine but I'm taking 2/3 years out before uni (for personal reasons) and so luckily I don't have the stress of UCAS/personal statements this year.

    I sat 3 maths AS exams in May/June and got As in all units and I have 12 A-Level exams next summer

    I'm going to try to post everyday what I've got done and hopefully something motivational too! Feel free to badger me if you see I haven't posted in a while!

    If you have any questions etc feel free to ask them below, like I say this is my first time trying this so apologies if I've done this OP all wrong! XD

    Sounds good to me mate, gives me more of a purpose to post knowing someone else is getting something from it too

    Ah! I've been slacking so much! If anyone wants to keep me accountable please let me know, I really need it! Today so far I've done two chemistry worksheets, nowhere near the amount I should have done by now but it is progress!

    I get my worksheets from a website called Kerboodle but you do need a log in for that one. Physics and Maths tutor is also a good website though and you don't need a log in for that one. And yep, new linear exams for me!

    Awh, thank you for checking out my blog, it means a lot! Yep I'm year 13 and year 12 was pretty easy for maths for me. Chemistry I need to put in a lot more work for because I find it quite difficult to make sure I pick up all the marks and for biology I need to put in more time to memorising things because there is sooooo much to remember! For biology, chemistry and physics I'm on OCR and I'm on aqa for maths.
