    Hello everyone I hope everyone has started school just fine and is getting used to it ^-^ These past few days I have been so unmotivated so I have decided to post the hours that I did extra work + homework today with some few pictures.

    Personally I didn't do well in my AS exams and its very discouraging to see people get As and Bs but I think after the AS something has clicked, I am not going to say that I am going to be a totally new person in a few days but I want consistency in my work. During my AS I revised like it was my GCSE's which now I have realised is stupid and just doesn't work but it also means that I have lots of AS reviewing to catch up on.
    I have carried on physics , biology and chemistry (I know I am crazy since I got very low grades , like I barely passed) which I know are heavy subjects but I am going to have to work harder than I ever have so here it goes ^-^

    P.S any tips or resources ?
    Thankyou xxxx

    Good luck

    Don't use hours as a quota, just do as much as feel like but it's also about the content and quality covered. Taking like 5 or 10 minute breaks to walk around or throw a ball in the air.. it all helps though nothing that can turn into a long time or make you not want to study.

    With the sciences there's a lot of knowledge that you need to remember, which only happens if you process it a few times and maybe write it out and then practice as many questions as you can or draw pictures etc and aim to have these pictures in your head

    Day 1
    I have finished all my homework that are due in for tomorrow and now I am going to stay up probably up-to 12 am writing my biology notes and some physics if I am not too tired. But today has been a good day except that I forgotten that I had a biology homework to submit, I handed it in during lunch rather than on my lessons so I guess it's better than not handing it in.
    (I might post some pictures before I go to bed)
    @SeanFM thankyou for the advice ^-^

    Subscribing to this as I'm also in year 13 and do almost the same subjects (maths instead if physics) and seems like good motivation for me too. Although I do warn don't stay up and work all night give yourself atleast some break if your working on school stuff all day everyday you'll either go mad or give up.

    Day 2/3 : sorry for not posting guys! I have been relatively busy, I have so much work to complete aswell but I finished my biology notes for the first topic so I am rewriting some physics from today. Ugh I hated biology today because we are doing ecosystem right now and its just note taking so I nearly dozed off but I can't afford to not like a topic so I am probably going to go over it. How was your day ? and what lesson are you the sleepiest xD

    My chemistry notes, I have been writing them on my free and rewriting them with additional information from other sources later on. This week has been busy! I had 2 assessed homework due in today, I was up until 2 am today to get it all done. During the weekend though I didn't do much work which is really disappointing (I never seem to do work in the weekends )
    To be completely honest I have so much extra work to do which I have little to 0 time for BUT I should probably stop making excuses and do it.
    Bye x

    Hi, I am really liking thermodynamics in physics right now because it actually makes sense. Chemistry is okay but I feel like we haven't done much theory, we have done practicals every single day for the past week and I am hoping my teacher doesn't cram all the theory into one lesson. I did one of my chemistry homework and I got a C which is decent but if I am being really honest I didn't do it all by myself and got some help from friends (who are like very clever) so I don't think I earned it.

    Chemistry practicals are fun though and yeah if your teacher does that slap him.
