I'm creating this thread (like many people) to motivate themselves about their progress during Y12. I will be posting what I do every week in terms of academics, but also extra-curricular and AAB (Above and Beyond) work, so I have a head start in Uni application.

GCSEs:
9.5 A*s and 1A

AS Level:
A in ICT (Achieved)
Hoping to overall get 5As in (Maths, Chem, Bio, Geo, ICT)

I'm not dead set on the degree I want to do, but I know I want to do something around Biology and Chemistry in the future

(Feel free to post if you want, but I don't need any. This is just a thread to help me keep on track.)

Week 1:

Started AS Levels in my subjects and received my timetable.

I have bought folders for each subject and bought dividers to ensure that my notes are revision ready.

Started to get use to the '8hrs of work a day' minimum requirement by the school.

Joined Medical Society, where the Y13s discussed the books they read, as well as interesting articles, and the lessons we can derive from it.

Trying to keep and maintain a sleep and wake up schedule so that I don't end up exhausted during the day...

Week 2:

Attended New Scientist Live event in ExCeL London, where I was able to listen to talks about dementia, immunology, morality, drugs etc. Also was able to try a VR headset that enables me to see/hear from a typical perspective of someone who has dementia, which was interesting as I was able to see the personal side.

Rewritten my messy geography and chemistry notes

Started reading 1st chapter of 'Complications' by Atul Gawande

Finished 1st chapter of 'Medical Ethics: A very short introduction'
