    AM: So today's gonna be pretty action packed. Going into Glasgow, gonna grab a bite to eat and have a look at some prom dresses . I've already found some really pretty ones, and my dream one that I realllllyyy want, but it's online , so not ideal. It's super early I know!! Just gonna have a look at some styles and colours but I really like grey and am looking for something not too blingy. Quite a few people in my year have already got their dresses.
    I'm just gonna have a look no buying for me today I think. Should be a good day out.

    You have a prom at the end of yr 13???? Oooo that's cool, what did you do at the end of yr 11 then? Or does the Scottish system not work the same as the Welsh/English system?

    Tip 7

    Youtube is a great resource. For example for chemistry I watch Professor Daves lessons and watch online tutorial for Visual Basics coding. Many people on youtube post helpful videos, it's essentially online tutoring!

    AM - So today me and my little sister are going to visit my great grandpa and have lunch together so that should be good fun, it's always a laugh over there!

    I'm going to continue my maths notes today that I began last night and then maybe start my ink exercise homework for maths. Bit boring but has to be done.

    Thoughts: I'm feeling pretty good today, not been as stressed this week since i've not been at school (currently battling anxiety and stress that's pretty bad, it's making me ill). Currently cannot get JP Cooper She's on my mind out of my head, it's soo good! My feelgood tune for this week, have a listen!

    PM - So I started the maths ink exercise.. It's horrible I've not managed to do much of it the questions are pretty hard, but luckily I'm back at school Monday and it's due Wednesday so I can ask for some help. But on the plus, I organised my notes and printed a bunch of study printables

    So, I've been a bit lazy with the blog. Just being back at school has been chaotic. I've done some notes for biology today on membranes in my free periods. I'm home and doing some chemistry calculations and maths questions on triangles.

    Tip 2
    This is an example of my study plan. I'd highly advise if you want to do well in exams then make a study timetable or at least plan your time. Be realistic with time , don't say you'll spend 2 hours studying and then do homework if you go to an after school club til late. Try to change it up monthly focusing on specific subjects, for example in October you might be spending 2 hours a night doing chemistry because you don't understand it however in November you may understand it and only want to spend an hour. Try to make sure you study all subject no matter how confident you are in one or the other. Try to section of times for a subject or even a day. Remember to have a day off and take breaks in between studying hours. Try to make it effective , however if you don't get round to doing an hour of history and can only do half an hour, or you were so tired you just didn't do it , that's okay just be sure not to fall into a trap and make it a weekly trend. I'd love to see your study plans to see what they're like compared to mine


    you have some really useful tips so thank you for this i love the quotes!

    So, this week has been heavy stressful! I've been organising a first year halloween dance for S1's for my school and it happened today and went pretty well , we raised quite a bit of money. My halloween dance was last night , I dressed up as Elliot from E.T! It was such a good night although a lot of drama happened. So today's not been a great day. Due to all the drama at the dance last night our next ones been cancelled. Also I got pretty upset cos my biology teacher made me fell like crap. On the plus however I have done quite a bit of studying for my biology tests , one of which was today and I think went pretty well. Hopefully this weekend I can be a bit more productive and also upsate this blog a bit more.

    Oganisation is key! Make a to do list. It really helps, you can find of to do list printables online. It keeps you on your toes and means you know what you need to do
