    About Myself

    Well first of all thanks for looking at my new thread . Two weeks ago i enrolled back into my college for year 13 and i start again on thursday . Ever since i finished my GCSEs i always new i wanted to study law at university - because it was the only thing i enjoy learning about - and now I'm in my last year of sixth form, studying business, economics and law and i am determined to get the best grades i can.

    P.S I made a new thread because the old thread was Pre A2 so I'll be starting it properly on Thursday.

    Academics

    At GCSE i achieved BBBAAAAAA*A* in,
    Spoiler:

    Biology - B
    Computer Science - B
    English Language - B
    Art - A
    Chemistry - A
    English Literature - A
    Mathematics - A
    Physics - A
    Business Studies - A* (100%)
    Religious Studies - A* (100%)
    At AS Level CAAA in,
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Mathematics - C
    Business Studies - A
    Economics - A
    Law - A
    In year 13 i decided to drop mathematics because after sitting my AS Mathematics exams i literally had no confidence left in my ability. Also i don't have any particular targets at A2 anymore because feel that setting myself some will drop my confidence levels and my motivation, I'll just do my best.

    University

    Law is very competitive as a degree, i intend to get into the best possible institution . So far i have completed my personal statement and intend to apply to,
    Spoiler:

    ULaw - BBB
    Lancaster - AAA
    Westminster - AAB
    Manchester - AAA
    Kent - AAA
    Thank you for reading my blog, feel free to join this journey with me.

    Good luck hopefully you have the predictions and strong application to be accepted into all five of those unis for a very tough subject indeed.

    How will you ensure that you keep up the good work that you did in Year 12?

    Not being funny- Aren't you worried about getting 3 rejections?

    LSE Law: 17% offers
    Oxford Law 16%
    Manchester: 60%

    I hope you prove me wrong though.

    I practically just timetabled my whole year of revision and I've taught myself a lot of A2 work already. So for business and economics I'm doing a topic per unit everyday and then at the weekend I'll annotate the specification on the topics I've studied from memory and build that up each week. And then every 2 weeks I'll set myself a test.

    For law I'm just doing past papers a everyday up until the exam, and if i run out I'll just make my own. And thank you i hope too

    I'm not entirely sure I'm applying to manchester yet, but if you get 3 A's at AS, my college encourages you apply to 2 high risk (top) universites. So i am expecting rejections, but the only universities i actually want to go to is Ulaw or Lancaster which is BBB and AAA. But these choices aren't all final, I'll have a think about switching some , but thanks for the concern

    Day 1

    Wow, today has been so busy, I've been studying and in college non stop .

    In economics we learnt all about monopoly diagrams (so confusing) . In my free i printed one out and started to annotate all the formula and started to research why it is that way. I also completed at 25 mark tested, annotated economics theme 1.1.1 and theme 3.1.1.

    In business i recapped globalisation and annotated notes on factors influencing it, trading blocs, fdi, economies and economic power. I also recapped one section of my AS business on markets and annotated the spec.

    In law i briefly read over notes for unlawful act manslaughter and edited an assessment i did 2 weeks ago, which I'll email my teacher tomorrow . I also researched a case i was meant do for homework

    Day 3

    I know i wouldn't post tonight, so I'm doing it now. But already I've one quite a bit. I've especially focused on consolidating my business revision. So far i consolidated the business market and market research. But i also finally understood the most complicated business topic at A2, which is globalisation. I looked at the factors Influencing it, how trade barriers reduce it and how trading blocs are sorting this out.

    For economics i have been revising monopoly diagrams, as well as types of efficiency and business objectives and i think i finally understand them :dance: .
