    Decided to do a Grow your grades thread because I feel like it will motivate me to actually achieve my goal to study .

    I’m not 100% of what course I want to do. But for now I’m hoping for Medicine ( want to do mathematics but I was stupid enough to chose Spanish over further maths )

    More about me-

    GCSE-A*A*A*AAAAABBC ( flippin’ C in art.)

    A level - AQA Biology
    AQA Chemistry
    EDEXCEL Mathematics
    AQA Spanish.


    Currently in year 12 as of sept.2017.


    EDIT- Aiming for A* in Maths ( ofcourse) , A* in Biology and high A in Chemistry.

    Cross fingers .

    Today , my mom has decided to bring us to a Turkish restaurant after school. Yummy!

    Not doing maths today since my brain is fried from doing over 40+ questions .
    Tomorrow, my maths teacher will teach us again after the dreadful two weeks of not having him due to paternity leave.
    Probably , he is going to give the results for our mini tests . I was very noisy and picky to the head of department - I got 91% and the highest in the class!

    18:30
    Going to go over my chemistry homework on enthalpy and Hess laws ( I hate it).
    At about 7:30pm I will start to revise on what I’ve sone so far on chemistry , finish any notes .

    I get the main ideas but it’s confusing. Today , I came out of a very dreadful lesson so confused . You don’t know how bad my chemistry lessons are.

    Going to revise for it hopefully I will get it .

    I know right. It is a simple topic but my teacher made seem like a university type of topic .
    Omg , I used to have a racist teacher back in primary omg I feel for u .
    My teacher is just so ... he is somehow nice but at the same time he cannot teach a level chemistry .

    Yes , the new spec . It is linear which I find annoying tbh , in therms of topics they are the same - but the exams are going to be more different since we are allowed to use calculator for all three exams . But ya know life is life .

    It's linear. Though if you're doing further maths at my school you do maths a year early. All students who did maths and further maths last year at A-Level got an A* in Maths so I'm optimistic about my chances of doing well.

    Hi, I've just started my A-levels and want to study veterinary medicine. I was predicted all A*s (apart from further maths as I didn't have a prediction) and sat my GCSEs this year.

    GCSEs
    Biology - A*
    Chemistry - A*
    Art - A*
    English Literature - 8
    RE - A
    Maths - 7
    English Language - 7
    Physics - A
    ICT - A
    Geography - A
    Further Maths - B
    French - C

    4A*s, 6As, 1B and 1C

    For A-levels I have decided to pick 4 and possibly drop one within the first year or first few months.

    AS levels
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Maths
    Further maths

    I was wondering are you enjoying your A-levels and have you had any medical work experience?
