Review: did not get much done because I had to argue about my universities to my parents for ages. It's a constant debate every day. This has been happening a lot for the past weeks because they are constantly enforcing the UK on me, and courses that I really don't want to do.

- Finally finished personal study for Art!
- 3 pages of Organic Synthesis booklet
- C2 circle geometry recap
- S2 median and quartile recap
Review: did not do enough. Argued a lot with pressuring parents - it is a constant battle for Amsterdam. They don't want me to take a gap year either and so I'm looking at maybe doing a foundation course or something before hopefully getting into PPLE.

- Some chill Latin AS revision (watched way too much of The Tudors... TV is really distracting so I'm not gonna touch my PS4 for Netflix from now on.
- General verse/prose revision

- Learning vocabulary with some procrastination by looking at Dutch universities
- Last minute cramming
- Brush up on tenses and grammar tables
Thoughts on exam: went excellently, if anything, a lot better than last year! Passage 1 more or less nailed. Just forgot in Passage 2 that 'surrexerim' doesn't mean "I undertook", it means "I stood up". I really psyched myself by reminding myself of the competitive requirements for Edinburgh/Amsterdam beforehand so just the right level of adrenalin to ace the paper.
