    GOOD DAY TO ALL!!
    My name is Sarah, I have just entered 6th form and I want to do really well in my A-levels, because you know, they're important for life and what not For this reason, I have decided to start a blog to track my journey through A-levels
    I will update as regularly as I can with revision talks, lessons, mock exam results and other general bits and bobs
    First of all, here is a little break down of my education pathway:




    GCSE'S
    I didn't do as well as I would have liked in my GCSE's and I was especially disappointed in myself with my English lang grade but nevertheless, here they are:
    Maths ~ A
    Further Maths ~ A
    English Language ~ B (One mark off an A though and it never got remarked!!! )
    English Literature ~ A*
    French ~ A
    Geography ~ A*
    Art ~ A
    Core Science ~ A
    Additional Science ~ A
    Further Additional Science ~ A*
    Religious Studies ~ A


    There we go and currently, for my A-levels, I am studying
    • Maths
    • Biology
    • Chemistry
    • Geography

    At the minute, I would like to become a dentist but due to my indecisive nature, I feel that that might change soon

    Other
    As for other activities and hobbies that I do:
    • Explorer Scouts once a week in the evening
    • Volunteering at a local cat rescue once a week
    • Working as a cleaner during the weekends
    • Zumba once a week
    • Going to the gym twice, sometimes three times a week

    As you can see, my schedule normally gets quite full and I also have various appointments to go to each week as well but I am determined to make the effort to revise and work hard to get the A level grades that I am happy with.

    Wow, those amazing GCSE grades! I'm sure you'll continue to shine throughout your A-Level adventure

    There's still time to decide on what you want to do but let us know! It's good that you have hobbies as well, don't overdo your work, you need to let loose every now and then

    Good luck!

    Basically very good Took some time to adjust but I think I'm use to the workload

    Maths: Nearly finished C1 , I've nailed all the basics but it is the worded questions that messes me up. I need more practice in those.

    Biology: Great so far. There is a lot to memorise but I'm getting the hang of it.

    Chemistry: I hate how most of GCSE is oversimplified, and chemistry concepts is harder to understand compared to Biology. Managing fine though

    Geography: I chose this as a fourth subject because I aspire to study Biomed. We started practicing for 40 marks essays, and got a C grade on my first one...

    I also have to balance these a levels with extracurriculars so it sounds so stressful

    We've almost finished C1 as well, so far its going ok, not going to get my hope up too high yet though . Biology for me is going well too and yeah I agree soooo much to memorise. Chemistry is the most difficult for me at the minute, it is my weakest and well done for getting a grade c on your first one!! That's really good! We haven't started any essays yet but I'm sure we will soon....
    Good luck with everything!!!
