    (Note: I was motivated by the Grow my Grades section and I thought I'd do my own since its a new year!)

    Previous academic results: GCSE: 3A*s 7As; AS level: AA (in Maths and German)
    Current studying: Mathematics, German, Biology, Chemistry
    My goals: Less procrastination, Better organisation skills and to receive A*A*A*A* in all four A-level subjects!
    :bl:
    Currently, I hold an offer from Imperial College London to study BSc Biochemistry with German for Science, on the conditions of receiving AAAB (AAA in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics and a B in German). My insurance offer is The University of Birmingham to study BSc Biochemistry with a year in Continental Europe, on the conditions of BBB (a reduced offer due to the successful completion of Realising Opportunities).

    However, with hard work and determination, I believe I am capable of achieving A* across all my four subjects! Let’s do this!




    As of 31/12/2016, I have currently completed all notes covering the whole specification for Chemistry, Biology (In some parts, handwriting is not very neat…) and Mathematics.

    I have finished learning all the keywords for German (however, I would need to refresh my memory on German vocab on a regular basis and may need to learn unfamiliar German words I come across). For 2017, I aim to practice more on my German speaking skills since it is not the best!

    (Hopefully, a few of you guys follow my journey and this motivates you to also achieve your goals!)

    My predicted grades are A*AAA.

    I have no interest in becoming a doctor and Medicine is extremely competitive. I prefer Biochemistry in terms of the research aspects.

    fair enough, its also a bit of a nightmare trying to balance the non academic side of applying to medicine ( entry tests, interviews) with schoolwork. great predicted grades!

    I thought universities aren't allowed to make offers based on four grades? How do you have an offer of AAAB at Imperial??

    they are, theyre not allowed to ask for students to take four A-levels but if you have then they can make four a level offers, usually dropping one grade on one of the subjects

    Hey!
    Because I mainly do science subjects. The exam technique is quite different in terms of essay based subjects so I'm quite limited in advice. However, use the specification when writing your notes and use it as a checklist! For French, I suggest using Quizlet to learn vocab!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I only have 3 days left of the Christmas holiday before my mock examinations!
    :elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant::elefant:

    Biology - I completed a Unit 2 Biology Paper, June 2010 (Received 65/80) > I corrected the work and will practice more papers - (I'm really not a fan of plants and the environment...)
    Chemistry - Revised at few Chemistry topics for the mocks (Rates, Half life, Rate Determining Step, Methods to measure the reaction rate, the Arrhenius Equation)
    German - Edited my notes on a German film that I'm studying. An essay about the film will be in the mocks. Have any of you watched "Das Leben der Anderen" - a very good film!

    I plan to finish the day by revising M1 (Maths). Goodnight!
