Welcome to my Grow Your Grades blog
Yes i know i'm a bit late dont judge me
A bit about me
As the title suggests, I have a huge fear of failure. I am confident I'm not alone in this, but strangely enough, this fear of mine actually pushes me. In day to day life, I'd say I'm quite an optimistic person. But when it comes to school and studies, I'm the most pessimistic kid out there. I wish I knew why my brain works like this, but I have no explanation, but an upside of this is my fear of failure actually benefits me. My constant belief I'm failing, and my stupid, annoying pathetic brain ALWAYS comparing myself to my peers, really motivates me which is the complete opposite of how it usually works. Normally comparing yourself to others puts your down, well for some reason, putting myself down...helps me? I can't explain it and I never intentionally do it, it just happens cause again, my brain is stupid.
So in total 2 A*'s 4 A's 2 B's and 1 C (yay I passed everything)
My GCSE experience
was Stressful All over TSR there are students who just didn't revise for their GCSE's. Boy how i WISH i could say the same. I've never been one of those 'naturally smart' people who just get everything straight away and get away with minimal revision. I started my GCSE revision around early March and was bloody proud of my results (Except french but its kind of my teachers fault kind of my fault)
What will this blog focus on tho?
Well since in my AS year this will primarily focus on my AS choices and my daily revision (at least i hope its daily)
My A levels are
I would LOVE to study computer science at university-dont really have anything else to say about that other than the fact i am EXCITED for university.
In addition to my A levels, since I aspire to study computer science at university, I want to start work on my personal statement, and by that I mean learn python and start reading around computer science
But since i dont want my blog to be boring as hell, I will write what i do in my breaks between studying which 98% of the time, consists of playing video games. I'll end up probably posting a screenshot of my gaming session daily (if i do manage to play daily)
Here is a picture of my desk : )
