A Journey to All A*s (Hopefully)Watch
I don't really have a career I wanna do just yet but like English Lit a lot and tend to like 'mind-creative' things aka nothing that involves physical art, like interpreting TV shows and films, reading etc
Here are some stats:
Mock resultsvs Predicted vs Current Working
Eng Lang 8+ / 8 / 9
Eng Lit 7+ / 8 / 8
Maths 9- / 9 / 8+
PE A / B / C+
Geography A- / A* / B
Business Studies A*+ / A / A*
History A* / A* / A*
French Overall A*- / A / A+
Religious Studies B / A* / B+
I take Double Science and we haven't had a mock yet but I got A* in Core last year and so hope to do just as well this year! I also take Further Maths which hasn't had a mock yet either.
Surprisingly, I revised really hard for RE and Geography which tells me that my exam technique has to improve. I revised quite a lot for PE too but that seems to have paid off!
I tend to revise Science with ease (Thanks CGP) and used to do Maths quite a bit but I need to go over Inspector Calls, Jekyll and Hyde and Poems for Lit and I need to improve my Geography knowledge A LOT. Even though I don't seem to be amazing at Geography exams I managed a pre-moderation A* in the coursework (25%) so maybe that'll save me.
I have my Eng Lang Paper 2 mock on Tuesday, French Writing Coursework I need to redraft ideally for Monday and the IMC on Thursday so I guess I'll be preparing for those first while finishing my History Coursework at school for this week, and then my Science Mock the following week Wish me luck ......
*looks at grades*
Welp the journey to A* is going to be quite short for you if you keep the good work up.
Good luck on the French coursework, I have to resit my Spanish writing exam 1 and 2 in the half term holidays. Got good scores on Speaking 1 and 2.
Ah all credit goes to my Spanish teacher, he's a really cool guy that has to put up with all our mess and resits. Incredible flexible, he is.
Yeah I would have that issue as well, I memorise it-
what? Learn it? no no no why learn when you can memorise it and get Bs and As? It's not like AQA actually care if you can speak Spanish no no no.
Yeah and then I'm like "oh yeah here we go HERE WE GO!"
I enter the room,
"*breaths in* Hola me.....wait......oh no."
Memorisation is honestly key, I'm not sure how exam boards expect us to be semi-fluent in a foreign language in a year and a half tho....
I always cry when I watch English Lit revision videos just like "HOW THE HELL CAN I SAY THAT? THAT WOULD BE A LIE! I DON'T KNOW WHY SHAKESPEARE DID THIS!"
I don't know who's in charge of exam boards, I would love to send them this picture.
As a good friend of mine said, "English Literature is about making stuff up and justifying it"...He says as he gets handed his mock results and sees he got a Grade 3. *claps*
Says the girl that got an Grade 8.
I used to love analyzing things, I really did.
But then I entered Year 11.
And then I went into a spiral ohhhh my.
*looks at McDonald logo*
Friend: You know Katzen, I never understood the yellow arches.
Me: *ahem* The founders of McDonald decided to use the yellow arches in order to symbolise happiness. The effect this has on potential customers is that they will associate happiness with McDonald and therefore will feel the need to cure their depression by eating McChicken Sandwhich and Fish Filliet.
Friend: Oh my ****ing God.
Me: Do you mind? *ahem* These types of logo are common as the founders used psychology studies in order to understand the human behaviour towards colours hence why various companies such as Pizza Hut uses a red colour to make their custom-
Friend: Dude shut the **** up.
His facial expression was really funny though, we had just finished from an English intervention so doing this after a few 10 minutes just pissed him off so bad.
No no no that wasn't dedication, that me being a prick to my friend. Do you want to be a prick?! Do you want to lose friends? Do you want to be that one girl that gets As and A*s but doesn't have friends?
If yes, make sure you record yourself and send it to me so I can slowly watch you lose friends, I'm a very sadistic individual if you couldn't tell from my signature of Donald Trump.
Here the the student has shown the audience that she cheats in the exam. I can infer this as the student gets really good grades on her exams yet fails to correctly identify the language devices of the writer. An example of this is when she incorrectly identifies one of the language device as a rhetorical questi- THAT WASN'T A RHETORICAL QUESTION! That was an actual question.
So far today I've finished(ish) some History homework, redrafted my French coursework, done my further maths homework and managed to understand some concept in a maths textbook that had me completely baffled for at least 30 minutes (so im quite proud of that).
Next, I need to start drafting my French speaking answers so I don't end up rushing when it's time to learn them, and also prepare for the maths challenge on Thursday.
I have a cold which hasn't been great which is a shame as i'm being quite productive atm even tho i feel like death!
today I've done jack shite in terms of revision but I did finish learning modular arithmetic for no reason. I forgot to give in my coursework to be marked but it's finished so that's okay. next two weeks r kinda busy even tho i pretty much wasted today but it's okay cos ive got a cold so that's my excuse!
No no no, this isn't banter.
This is genuine confusion, one side you're like "oh I did jack ****" and then you're like "I finished learning how to calculate the circumference of the sun using 2 melons in my kitchen."
Make up your mind!
