    So I've seen a lot of these 'grow your grades' and 'journey' threads so I thought I'd hop on and make my own, plus I feel it could motivate me more.

    Subjects I study:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Law (AQA)
    Classics (AQA)
    Economics (AQA) (2 year course)
    My AS Grades:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Law: B
    Classics C
    My personal targets for the year (grades):
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Law: A/A*
    Classics: A/B
    Economics: B
    My likely predictions (updated to official predictions when received):
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Law: A
    Classics: B
    Economics: C (due to an awful mock grade)
    I intend to study law at Kent (AAA/AAB typical offer). If I do not receive an offer for the law course I hope to receive an offer for the politics and law course (ABB typical offer).

    I am hopefully going to be resitting unit 1 in law and unit 1 in classics however I have not yet come to a final decision on this as I am unsure on costs and whether or not I'll be able to afford a resit.

    I'll be posting updates, hopefully on a regular basis, but I will definitely be updating you all on my revision and all that other good stuff. I'd appreciate advice for classics and economics as I'm yet to find a good way of revising it.

    UPDATE:

    Yesterday I brought a few notepads and I'm using one per subject. I started economics from scratch so I can get a better understanding of it - I'm using my teachers micro powerpoints and taking notes as I go. I've completed behavioural economics and economic methodology.

    Today I intend to relax as it's Sunday.

    My plan is to have 1 day a week where I do no revision, that day is Sunday.

    Today I had double law, single classics and single economics.

    We covered loss of control again in law as most of the group didn't understand it - this was a nice refresher and I didn't have to go over the lesson as it was a revisit.
    Classics we looked at Augustus' military achievements and we looked at the number of legions before/after various battles and how Varus was a complete idiot and lost 3 legions in Germania (was an interesting lesson).
    Economics, our teacher went too far into the course without realising it so we all sat there confused - not much was achieved so I just sat there and did my own thing and looked at micro in more detail using my revision book.

    All in all, productive day! I also managed to successfully drop my EPQ without our coordinator getting mad at me, whoop.
