Hello and welcome to my grow your grades!!

This year I am aiming for A*A*A in Spanish, History and Biology A Levels, having achieved AAC in these last year. I also got a C in maths and was very disappointed with these results, so hoping to make up for it this year.

At GCSE I got 2A*s and 10As (wish I had worked harder now) and I now have offers from Bristol, Newcastle and Exeter for Modern Languages. I am awaiting responses from Oxford and Durham.

Hoping to look back on this in a years time with the grades that I want!!

So far...

The first half term has been tough due to sorting my UCAS out and practising admissions tests etc., however I have now had the following results:

Biology: Respiration prep - A*3 (90%)
Biology: Respiration test - B1 (77%)
Biology: Photosynthesis prep - E2 (45%)
Biology: Photosynthesis test - D2 (53%)
History: 1789-1815 - B3 (72%)

Although they may be posted here the above results aren’t concrete evidence as in history to do an actual essay (exam style) we have to finish the course due to thematic style of A2. For Photosynthesis my teacher included things wayyyy beyond the specification hence the poor grades and cyclic phosphorylation for example isn’t actually part of my course (it also happened to be amidst UCAS sorting. The only grade really that says much is the Respiration test. Going to mark questions etc. over half term and keep this updated though!
