    This will be a thread were will keep a log of my work to A*AA. I will give myself no option but to get these grades as i feel as though I am capable of it despite poor GCSES. I'm going to aim to do an extra hour for each subject every night on top of the homework.

    GCSES: 6A'S 5B's C [ Further maths lol]
    AS: AABC
    A2: Economics (AQA), history (AQA) and politics (AQA).

    I have done nothing over summer thus far but from tomorrow the hard work really starts.

    I've asked for my Raw marks in economics and history.

    Economics:
    Unit 1: 66
    Unit 2: 60

    History:
    Option A: 33
    Option B: 34

    Government and politics:
    Unit 1: 84
    Unit 2: 88

    I'll be applying for the flying start programme at Nottingham.

    A&F at UEA, York, Surrey and Reading.

    Good luck maybe dropping one of those subjects and self studying might be an optimistic shout but.. might get you into somewhere like Bath?

    Day 2

    I didn't get done today what i wanted too. Im actually kind of looking forward to going back to school tbh. I felt a bit ill but nevertheless i managed;
    -Another 10 pages of economics notes
    -More PS

    I'm thinking that i should do an hour of each subject everyday on top of homework- Is this too much/ Even achievable?

    I'm planning on doing 1 hour of work on top of homework each day also. I think it is possible if you're organised, and stay motivated for the whole year.
    Good luck!
