I didn't realise it's been so long since I updated the last day was Sunday! I've been really busy this week and I've got some good news! Firstly, I passed the Deloitte Immersive Online Assessment and I've been invited to take the Job Simulation which I'll do on Monday And also I got an offer from LSE!
Maths: Today in maths I was really happy cos we've finally finished C4 This mean we'll just be revising in our C4 lessons from now on! I'm planning on bringing my own questions etc to lessons as I prefer working independently so I can work on my weaknesses (instead of working on what the teacher sets for revsion ) I'm really excited about this cos it'll reduce the amount of work I have to do at home and the lesson is 3 hours long We did differential equations today, which surprisingly isn't too bad. One thing I must do ASAP is learn all the standard integrals as it's not that I don't understand integration but sometimes it takes me a ridiculously long time when I'm doing questions to remember them in the first place there's quite a lot to remember! And another thing I realised that I talk too much in lessons I need to start focusing more!
Chemistry: We sat an organic chemistry test in the lesson. It was quite a good test, however the questions were NOTHING like the practice questions or any of the past paper questions which is a bit annoying! And there were a couple of questions at the end which were on a related topic that we studied last year (but not in the chapter the test was on) so I couldn't remember that at all so I literally just wrote that on the paper But the good news is that everything that I revised for (and that was meant to be in the test!) I understood and I could remember the information So I decided to take this positive from the test instead of focusing on the negatives. Another thing I realised afterwards is that when we finish revising the course and I finish revising everything it'll all link together nicely which will make it easier
Tomorrow I have work. I'm leaving next week so that I have more time to revise but I'll go back in the summer! I'm actually really going to miss everyone, but the revision time and extra time for other things I'll get in the upcoming months will be worth it I'm planning on doing 5 hours of revisions tomorrow, and I'm going to focus on revising AS content for chem and econ (but only macro) as I've been so focused on A2 content. I'm going to wake up at 4:30 tomorrow cos I'm not going out tonight. And then on Sunday, I'm going to revise AS Further Maths and cover S1 content for my retake (I still haven't started this!!) but I'm grateful my maths ability and work ethic has improved drastically compared to last year ( I was getting straight E's in tests and stuff) so I hope I can smash it
My inspirational quote for today is:
"Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations"- Unknown
Another thing I'd just like to thank everybody whose taken an interest in my blog. I appreciate you taking the time to read my posts, I really enjoying this and it's so motivating! I hope we all smash our exams x
i picked english lit, psychology and sociology for a-level though they're definitely not firm choices. i was thinking of doing geography instead of sociology but i don't know if i'll cope with the workload i wanna go into something to do with mental health when i'm older
I'm still alive guys! Can't believe I haven't updated in 2 weeks I've been super busy...
I did the job simulation for Deloitte last week, it was REALLY awkward having to record myself on the webcam I definitely prefer face to face interviews I should have heard from Deloitte by this Wednesday, as it'll have been 2 weeks since I did it and I really hope they give me an offer for an interview (the last stage!) And I got a rejection from Warwick but I honestly don't mind I'm planning on going to LSE I will definitely firm it
This week has been crazy! I've had 2 chemistry mocks and 1 maths mock, and due to my recent bad time management I didn't revise and the second two I did today really haven't gone well I don't know what's wrong with me I'm really frustrated, I've been so motivated and feeling very down recently and of course it had to be when I had mocks But I'm not going to give up! I've still got 3 mocks next week, before I finish for Easter- I have an S2 maths mocks, a synoptic chem mock and an economics mock. I'm going to make sure I properly revise this weekend so I can pull my mock grades up I know I can do it I've also left work now (until exams finish) so I'll have plenty of time to do work. I'm going to miss everyone!
Like I said, I've been feeling really down recently and my emotions have just been up and down. But looking after my mental health by meditating and praying and doing visualisation exercises has really helped me. I've been getting up early every day this week and last week (not the weekend!) and I get up at 4 (or 5 which is my lie in .)
Another thing I have to do tomorrow is prepare for my Deloitte interview, as I've heard sometimes they only give you one day's notice and that would stress me out so much Tomorrow I am going to wake up at 5am cos I'm just at home tonight. I'm going to revise for my chem, econ and maths mocks and prepare for my Deloitte interview. Also, what I'm gonna do is plan exactly what I'm going to do in Easter so I don't feel overwhelmed there is so much to do! And then next week I'm going to print out all the past papers for my subjects and do the majority of them over Easter. I'm going to make sure I do a lot of intensive revision (but obviously with breaks and a couple of days off!)
When do you guys finish for Easter and how is everybody's revision going?
I will make sure I update every day in Easter (so from next Friday I finish on Thursday but I'm going to give myself a day off!) but I'll probably only update twice until then.
My inspirational quote for today is:
"If you don't like where you are, change it. You're not a tree."- Jim Rohn
OMG GUYS I AM OBSESSED WITH SHAWN MENDES' NEW SONGS THEY ARE SOO GOOD! You should take a listen, they're amazing!!
my revision's going okay i hope tomorrow goes well productivity wise
Nearly the same as me! Yeah it might be a good idea to focus on doing 3 and get the best results possible but honestly it just depends on how you think you'll find it. Do you know what you'd like to do after A levels?
I'm off to uni to read NatSci.
good luck!! I've already finished this term
