    Day 15 - afternoon:



    So, I'm back from my interview! I honestly have no idea on how well it went, I'm actually scared I sounded too rehearsed although I barely prepped anything! I kept stuttering and repeating words and I don't know if I sounded too formal. Honestly I'm hoping it was enough to get accepted, I met a really nice group of girls who I also worked with for the group task, which was definitely more fun and laid back than the whole interview process.

    If I could change anything about the interview, I wish I spoke more casually, and talked more about my extracurricular activity. Nervous. Really nervous. There were so many other aspirational students there, and I don't know if I was enough. Maybe I'm overthinking, but I dont find out till next month if I've got an offer of a place
    With these things, it's always really difficult to tell how they actually went, as it's really hard to know what they were actually looking for in the first place! As long as you know you tried your best in the moment, then all you can do now is wait and be content with that

    Day 15 - evening:


    Not much to update here, I actually spent the day doing v little revision, also I kinda wanted to take my mind off working for a few hours, ya feel? So I met up with a friend in town and we just hung around oxford street etc, mostly eating lmao. It was good to just forget about revision lol it felt like my year 9/10 days were back buuuut now I'm ready to spend the rest of the evening studying (yikes)


    I say yikes a lot, yikes. Sorry if it triggers you
    Well done for taking some time out for yourself- it's really important Hope you have a productive evening

    Day 17: 26th Feb 2018

    No entry post for yesterday, apart from revising topic 1 biology mostly procrastinated and ended up staying up too late doing papers for business, german maths and geography lol.

    I've been up since around 5, and then at 8 ish we had to go to physio. It snowed this morning so that made a great view, but omg its beyond freezing! Also the physiotherapist pushed me soooo hard today, the exercises today were near impossible - but I made it through to end, and I love her really. In terms of my spine I've made immense progress! I know a lot of people hate the hospital but I honestly have always just loved being in that environment, it's really somewhere I'd like to see myself working in a good few years.

    Not sure if anyones reading this but if so hows your Monday? I realised I've never really asked this, and if you have a GYG, tag me in it!

    Gonna head off now and, - try - not to procrastinate. :rolleyes:

I can't even remember the last time it fully snowed like this. Not sure if its going to settle lol but its freezingggg:snow:anyone outside please stay warm, and help others that might need it

    Day 20; 1st March

    I wasn't going to post today. I felt like what went on didn't really belong in this blog, and that its not the same / revision related as all my other posts so far, but I know that when I made this, I promised to myself and in my first post that I'd be brutally honest, so here I am.

    You’ve just entered and trespassed a thread to be filled with struggles, tears,
    I got the tears bit right. Today was supposed to be my first day of proper revision and as you can tell it wasn't. I have so much going on right now, I don't even know where to begin. The pressure to get top grades is so full on and combined with my health, and other stuff i couldn't take it anymore, so I cried, a lot. I don't really know what else to say apart from the fact that if you're going through a hard time, with school, friends, family, whatever, you'll get through it, and don't give up. I really could use with some motivation right now, but I need sleep lol, goodnight.

    Today was better than yesterday, music really does save lives lmao, I started it off with some Geography revision on topic 1, a business past paper, some maths revision on surds,and then a maths past paper. So far for the evening, I've revised some mandarin, a few exam style questions for biology, and and RS exam. Aiming to go to bed early tonight, so I'm going to test myself on Global Hazards stuff I went over this morning, and then head off to bed. :sleep:

    No way. I'm in yr 11 and had spinal fusion surgery in December as well, for scoliosis, so as you can imagine, I was a way of with my mock results as well. Whilst I am back at school now, I completely get what you are going through, as I found being off really inconvenient. If its any constellation, at my school they say they expect you to go up by around 2 grades by the GCSE.

    Day 23; March 3rd


    I'm sick HOnestly when do I not complain about the weather. It feels like I have the worst cold ever and that really doesn't help when I've got so much revision to do! I did go through all of separate chem 1, and then did a german reading practice paper, after spending most of the day resting

    Also I recommend my-gcsescience to everyone as a good revision source, I can't say for sure how much its helped me because I haven't sat the actual gcse yet, but I think the videos and exam questions are a great way of practicing stuff from the course The notes they give you save a lot of time too

    Hope you feel a bit better soon Everyone seems to be coming down with something at the moment! Well done for persevering, but don't push yourself too hard when you're not well

    Don't know if plans have changed due to the snow and you not being well, but good luck with going back to school if it's this week
