    Welcome to my race to 3 A*s
    A bit of background:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I'm in my final year of A levels, and I will be applying to 5 English universities this year (and hopefully getting in to one of them!). I enjoy reading, football, cycling and going out with friends. I am taking physics, maths and chemistry. I am applying for chemical engineering.
    Academic achievements so far:
    Spoiler:

    GCSEs- A*A*A*A*A*A*AAABBB
    AS levels- AAAA
    A2 levels (predicted)- A*A*A

    Bath- Not yet applied- A*AA- N/A
    Cambridge- Not yet applied- A*A*A- N/A
    Imperial College- Not yet applied- A*A*A- N/A
    Manchester- Not yet applied- A*AA- N/A
    Newcastle- Not yet applied- AAA- N/A
    So, I hope you find this thread interesting, engaging and perhaps even motivating! I know it motivates me, hence why like last year I am blogging my studying. Being able to see what you have done and stating on here what I am going to do gives me an extra kick to do work.

    I have a very busy schedule today. I've been out working this morning, and have some work to catch up on from yesterday. I'm going to have lunch after posting this, then do some physics reviewing and entrance test preparation in 1 block, probably around 1.5 hours. Then I'll have a break and do a physics homework and some chemistry revision, watch the England game and eat. Finally I've got some maths work to do, potentially around 2 hours. I will update this post as I go along.

    Spent 2 hours doing some pre-interview assessment preparation. Done 30 minutes of physics revision. Done 1.5 hours of physics homework, and chemistry revision.

    May have had one of the longest sleeps in history. Also, today may as well be called 'Mathsday' instead of 'Sunday' seeing as all 3 of the things I'm meant to be doing today are maths. I've got a (very) long piece of homework to do, but it's not in for a while so I will probably do 2 hours of it today, then do it bit by bit during the week. I also have some maths revision to do on topics I've already done in Core 3.

    My number 1 aim for this week is to get my UCAS application sent off by Wednesday (I am doing early entry, and the deadline is Saturday). The sixth form is still faffing around with my reference but I am going to go full-on nag mode to get them to do it quickly.

    The most important thing is to enjoy it. Then it is easier to get the work done.

    I will! Only have an offer from manchester so far, I'm really busy which is why I'm on TSR less now, it's a bit of a time drain.
