    So... I've not being doing great with revision especially with english and geography. I simply don't know what to prioritise because I feel that ultimately the grades for all my subjects matter. I mostly focus on getting science revision done and maybe it's because I enjoy itc or because I am choosing some sciences for my A-levels next year. What ever it is I need to up my game. Exam are near the corner and I'm STRESSED.

    What keeps me going is a bit of motivation:
    "The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet." - Aristotle

    So how is everyone handling the pressure, let me know?

    Great results nevertheless! Well done! Also yess we can do this journey together I UNDERSTAND your struggle with english eduqas it's the worst but we can't do anything about it now, we have to move past it, work hard and hope the grade boundaries are very low! What grades are you aiming for?What subject do you want to do for A level?

    Same here but ideally I would like a* in the sciences and maths because for A level I'm choosing Biology, Chemistry and Maths and probs EPQ because the sixth forms I've applied to require you to do it. Just do your best, i did poorly in my mocks as you've probably seen but at the end of the day it's the gcses that matter!

    Thats great! And yes i reccomend you re-do your course and get atleast a b because you might aswell take advantage of it it's going to help boost your overall grade if you dont do aswell in the exxam. And no we didnt get the lord of the flies extract in our mock.

    So I'm aware that i haven't uploaded to this blog in what seems a very long time. this is because I had English and Maths mocks so I've been pretty busy. some exams went well some not so much. However I have one good news so far and that is in my an inspector calls essay from the component 2 section of the literature paper I got a grade 8!!!! I am over the moon!! My maths paper 3 I felt I did horrible in but we shall see! i felt the same with the unseen poetry section of literature componeent 2. Feelings can decieve you so there is an element of hope in me. Next week will be my english language mock component 2. Hopefully that goes well
