    So I've never done this before but I thought it seemed like a good idea to give me extra motivation to keep studying when I don't feel motivated.
    I'll be updating this for my own sake so even if people don't follow along I'll be posting lol.

    Currently:
    I applied to university on UCAS on the 9th of October to the following universities:

    Cambridge (eek)
    Nottingham
    York
    Lancaster
    Leeds

    All for natural sciences (physical or maths/physics/chemistry)

    So far I have received interviews at York and Leeds. York was on the 24th of October and Leeds will be on the 15th of November.
    Both have said that if I attend I will be guaranteed a place which is amazing!

    My grades so far:

    AS:
    Maths - A
    FM - A
    Physics - A
    Chemistry - A

    GCSE:
    Maths, English Lit, Biology, Physics, Chemistry & Further Maths - A*
    English Language, Drama, History, Law & Spanish - A

    I'm predicted 4 A*s which I would obviously love to achieve but realistically I'm aiming for A*A*AA with one A* in maths and then the other probably in Chemistry.

    I'll be posting (hopefully) all sorts including what I'm going to study that evening, and university application updates.

    Feel free to follow my journey! (Or not lol I really don't mind)

    I wasn't going to post until my admissions assessment was over but I thought I'd do a quick post anyway.
    Tonight I am just working through last years NSAA paper, making sure I understand every question. If I get time I will do the same with the specification paper but I doubt I will.

    Just finished the NSAA, it was soooo difficult and I ran out of time on the multiple choice so I had to guess loads. Hopefully it doesn’t matter too much. I have a free period now so I’m aiming to do some D2 homework on the Hungarian Algorithm (fun!🙄)
