    Thank you
    For the coloured weekly one I just typed in 'timetable app' on Google play store.
    The one I've made until May I just wrote out on paper.

    Got some definite results back from my mocks (ones I posted before were a rough estimate):
    Biology = 93/100 = 9
    Chemistry = 96/100 = 9
    Physics = 79/100 = 8
    Maths = 202/240 = 9
    Geography = 64/88 = 7
    Religious Studies = 44/48 = 9

    Just waiting for the English and French results to be confirmed.

    Also, I'M GETTING WORK EXPERIENCE!!! And I organised it BY MYSELF (big deal as I'm really anxious about everything). Just got some forms to complete, get proof of my vaccinations and complete an assessment and hopefully I'll have a 2 week hospital placement in July (can you tell I'm excited????)

    Going to revise Biology Unit 2 (Organisation) tonight - writing notes and a prompt sheet.

    After that I'm going to read 'The Scorch Trials' (I'm hooked on 'The Maze Runner' series, it's my favourite thing in the whole world - better than Jaffa Cakes). I've got the first 4 books and have read them so many times and they're just so awesome. I'm getting the newest installment 'The Fever Code' soon and I'm so happy

    I just emailed the hospital asking if they offered work experience, and they sent me application forms and information.
    My favourite is Newt

    It's working well. I've only been using it a short while but I find it to be really effective

    I got my English and French results back:

    English Language = 132/160 = 7
    English Literature = 24/34 = 6
    French = 167/200 = 7

    I was SO surprised at my English results, because I was honestly convinced they had gone appalling and was hoping to scrape a 5. My English Literature I'm particularly astounded by as that was the day I threw up in school but was made to sit the exam before I was allowed to go home! Overall I got 4 9's, 1 8, 3 7's and 1 6 in my mocks. I'm extremely happy with these results, but I'm going to keep working and improve my weakest areas - no slacking.

    Finished 'The Scorch Trials' now and on to 'The Death Cure'. This book makes me cry every time (embarrassing but true ).

    Tonight I'm going to revise Religious Studies Unit 1A - Christian Beliefs, Teachings and Practices.

    I'VE FINALLY FOUND THE PERFECT REVISION TECHNIQUE FOR MYSELF!!!

    Don't get me wrong, the blurt technique and writing notes was effective, but my new way is better for me. It is........ FLASHCARDS.

    Basically, I'll put a title (e.g. Eukaryotic Cells), put the unit in the corner (e.g. B1) and condense all the essential info onto a flashcard and highlight key bits. I'll try to attach a picture of one of tonight's flashcards.

    I've made a new timetable leading until January (will attach pic tomorrow), in which I'll be making flashcards on every bit of content for all my subjects. Then from January to April I'll repeatedly go over these flashcards over and over again. From April onwards I'll focus mostly on exam questions to perfect my exam technique.

    Tonight I've done Biology Unit 1 (Cell Biology) and I'm loving my flashcards. I've also bought a notebook to write down all of the science required practicals in.

    YASSSS FLASHCARDS! I use the same method as you as well haha. All i do is write the topic and chapter in the corner( eg P1 conservation and dissipation of energy) then write out around 3 questions on them. On the otherside is the answer and i highlight the words/phrases i NEED to mention and remember. For longer more detailed questions, i write the question and below it i write what i must include so when i turn it round the highlighted words will be what i must include! It is very VERY useful! And also very quick especially when i want quick brain teasers!
    I'll send a pic when i get home from school!
    Have a nice day xxx
