    Hi,
    I am currently a year 10 student who wants to become a medical student. I am very diligent and decided to showcase my achievements and even my struggles. On this thread you will see some of the best revision tips I could possible give.

    A bit of information about my studies:-
    Predicted A*'s in all 10 of my GCSE's, or 8's now.
    I am also the biggest procrastinator of all time.

    My Subjects:-
    Maths,
    English language
    English Literature
    TRIPLE SCIENCE-chemistry, physics and biology
    History
    French
    Business
    Computer science

    I'm currently in year 11 and my revision processes are summarising key notes in each subject topics and put them on an index card and stick them on your bedroom wall or anywhere else you are guaranteed to see them. Hopefully seeing them everyday will allow it to stay in your head

    This is also one of my favourite methods of revision, I will be posting some of my revision card pictures tomorrow.

    HI, I'm up early today so I could get some revision in today. I've just checked TSR planner and realised I got a whole lot of things to revise for today! Waking up early is also an added benefit. More time to fit in procrastination.
    Your probably wondering why I am revising so much. I'll tell you. I currently achieved
    maths-level 5/high c
    computer science-2/10
    chemistry-24/40
    SHOCKING!!
    Didn't really know what happened in computer science. WHOOPS! A predicted A* student didn't even manage to get half marks. Yep! I need the revision.

    Back At School:
    This week has been my first week back since the holidays. I really enjoyed a-lot of my lessons and had a motivational talk from my mom about me not putting enough effort in because I'm gifted and talented and I think I can leave everything to last-minute. Oops! It's true, yes, ok, I do get a bit over confident when it comes to my academics. Only because my IQ is in the genius range.

    Anywaaay! I've got french homework, business homework and 9 subjects to revise for tests. I know manic. I need to get a good score on my biology test as I only managed to get a level 5/B- on my chemistry.
    I don't spend much of my time concentrating on lessons and normally stare at the clock, especially after 2h30 minutes straight of Biology. GGGR!

    I'm also worried medicine isn't for me and don't know if i'm following an academic trend. What I really want to do is be an entrepreneur or something with horses; like a show jumper. Yeah this year I have changed my career 34 times. I KNOW RIGHT!

    I'm struggling to get good marks on test, but I feel my revision is enough. My mom doesn't agree. I was just wondering if you had any tips on revision and if you could comment them below.

    Just be determined. Listen in class. Make notes as you go on. So as you finish each subject make notes and come back to them in year 11.. don't stress in year 10!!!!

    WHATS GOING ON:-
    Hi, I haven't been active for a while because my main focus has been revise, revise and revise. I'm supposed to be an A* student as you may know by now as thats all I ever seem to go on about. The stress is really getting to me though. I spend ages putting time in and I'm only getting average grades in test. SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE! I've just ordered 6 revision guides from school for maths and triple science. So. I'm getting well stuck in.
    WHAT I'M DOING RIGHT NOW:-
    Reading-Susan Hill, I'm the king of the castle.
    Its a great book and I loved reading to kill a mocking bird, in fact I loved it so much i read in 2 days! LOVE A GOOD BOOK! NERD ALERT!
    Revising-Creating resources and using the ones I have bought to gain better grades. I'm currently revising for at least 3 hours a day, every day.
    FUN!!! Playing on the Microsoft solitaire collection free online game. Watching the Apprentice!! LOVE THAT SHOW!
    LATEST ACHIEVEMENT!
    Getting a level 8 in my business test and a level 6 in physics which I literally don't understand.

    QUESTIONS THAT I WOULD LOVE FOR SOMEONE TO ANSWER?
    I don't really know what I want to be and keep changing my mind?
    What's your best revision technique?
    I'm an academic and don't want to go to university?
    Any good books that will improve my vocabulary?
    Any good music to listen to whilst studying?

    Hi,
    Today was actually pleasantly surprising. I enjoyed all of my lessons and this is way I have decided to write a little bit about them.

    MATHS:-
    We are doing algebra and are currently rearranging the formulas which I enjoy. I never used to like algebra but my teacher, who I have had for the second year now, is amazing.

    English:-
    I have a love hate relationship with this topic but I really enjoyed todays lesson. We had to write a creative piece of writing that emphasised a tense atmosphere.I get my test results tomorrow for a test we had done last week. WISH ME LUCK!!!

    Business:-
    We did the maths side of business today and I really liked it. Working out revenue and profit and how variable and fixed costs are calculated. I did a nice piece of homework and handed it in. My teacher loved the homework so I'm happy with the lesson. I scored an 8 in my last test I hope I get a 9 next time seeing as we will be doing maths in the next test.

    French:-
    My teacher told us to prepare for mocks and make sure we are taking enough time out of our social lives (mines non existent)
    to revise.We are still on the topic of the family house and I enjoyed the lesson. I did well on my test and used 4 tenses.


    QUESTION OF THE DAY:-
    FAVOURITE SUBJECT AND WHY?
