hey
so i've seen many of these "grow your grades" kind of posts so i thought i'd make my own as a way to keep me motivated and to track my study progress..
i do Edexcel IAL for bio chemistry and maths (C34+S1) + (a language which i didnt complete to A2 level)
so at the start of this year I as was aiming for A*A*A in biology, chemistry and maths, respectively, but after sitting the unit 4 exam this January (IAL edexcel), i realised it was highly unlikely i will still be able to achieve an A* in bio as the exam went terrible so yeah i changed my goal to AAA and will be happy if i was able to score an A* in either one

my AS results:
maths
C12 191/200 -A
M1 87/100 -A
overall AS maths: 278/300 (A)

biology
unit 1 102/120 -A
unit 2 114/120 -A
unit 3 40/60 -C
overall AS biology: 256/300 (A)

chemistry
unit 1 107/120 -A
unit 2 103/120 -A
unit 3 54/60 -A
overall AS chemistry: 264/300 (A)

Arabic
89/100 -A



Spoiler:
Show


i'm self studying bio and chemistry so its very tough and there are many times where i have zero motivation and want to give up so i hope making this thread will give me the push i need

I believe you can get A* in at least one

If motivation = 0.. take a break. And remind yourself why you are doing these subjects, and what your end goal is, and remind yourself that

YOU WILL ACHIEVE EXCELLENCE

I thought the content was hard but after solving a few past papers, I was so scared to even solve anymore. They expect you to know so much stuff from the previous units. I don't know if that's true but I definitely feel that way:/

Make sure you use a reference book too because I've heard of the A2 Ann Fullick books having a lot of wrong info, at least the A2 biology book did.
