    OKAY so since getting my first offer yesterday, for AAA, I feel like the pressure is on a bit! It's also quite good, because now I'm not only working for myself, but have something concrete to aim towards.

    I'm kind of just hoping this will motivate me a little more to work by tracking what I do each day. It may be that I don't really use this, or it could be really beneficial- I'm just trying it out

    I take A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and English Literature- my predicted grades are A*A*A, but a full set of A*s would be nice The only problem is I'm kind of failing Chemistry atm- I'm getting better, but I really, really need to improve if I'm going to go where I want for uni and not end up in clearing! Any help for Chem (OCR Salter's B) would be very very appreciated!

    If anyone cares, I'm applying to uni to study Biology/Biology with IE at Oxford, Manchester, Bath, York and Exeter.

    This is mostly for personal use, but feel free to comment ways I can could possibly not fail all my subjects!

    • Today I planned to have a fairly unproductive/work light day, as yesterday I had an interview and did a lot of travelling etc. and was still super tired from that. I haven't got masses of work done, but I've managed to get all set for my EPQ presentation on Wednesday which I'm very please about!

    • 2 hours of learning my notecards for my class test next Wednesday. A pretty text-heavy topic but interesting enough so didn't feel like too much work. Should be finished learning them by Monday lunch (hopefully!) and then I can just keep going over them before Wednesday.

    • 1 hour of revision for my clas test in a couple of weeks. Managed to master (I hope) balancing redox equations with H+, e- and H2O which is really good, and it turns out they're must easier than they initially seemed. So although very little content covered, being able to do those equations after doing a lot of practice questions is nice.

    • Have done my prep for the holiday so not too bothered about English atm. Need to sort out my coursework proposal (hopefully tomorrow) and decide on a quote for my title- it'll probably be time consuming but I'll be happy when it's done.

    • Spent about an hour writing up my notes for my presentation, so feel much better for that. Can hopefully run through it with a friend before Wednesday to check timings and IT etc.
    • Will finish my leaflet to hand round during my presentation before I go to sleep
