    About me:
    Hi, I'm Luke, I'm 16 and I'm living in North West England. I'm currently in Y11 and, I'd say, it's going a little lopsided for me. I'm not doing as well as I should be, which is quite un-nerving. I'm also apologising in advance for starting this thread so late.

    My Ambitions:
    I would like to continue onto A Levels to study: Computer Science, Maths, Further Maths and Geography. I would then like to continue on to study CompSci at university, such as UCL or Edinburgh, with Oxford being my dream come true.

    Academic Update
    School hasn't been going very well lately. I've just had mocks, and I've done pretty bad. We haven't got our mock grades back yet, we're getting those on Wednesday, however, I did find out that I got an A in Biology and an A* in Geography. I also found out that I only got 76/240 marks in Maths, which is kind of a bummer because I should be doing better.

    Revision update
    I haven't been doing as much revision as I should. I have a History mock scheduled next month on the 14th, so I'm going to start revising and hopefully have a month full of revision. Some reason, my teacher keeps giving me 1 mark away from an A, which is a bummer.

    I also recently joined the Skype revision group, which will hopefully help motivate me into revision. We've created the timetable for the upcoming week, which should help with some of the weaker topics of mine. We also created a Google Drive, where we will share our revision resources for subjects, which should help, especially for subjects like poetry were seeing other people's way of thinking is helpful.
