    Oh right I had no idea! Yeah I'm only doing AS this year as I self taught it in the summer and didn't want to do the entire a level in a year. Oh is the new content very different then?
    It’s a little different but not that much. The first set of exams for it are in 2019 that’s the only bad thing.

    I haven't updated in a while as I've been pretty ill probably because of the weather! But I feel a bit better now! And I'm SO happy cos we have a day off college tomorrow because of the snow! I also really need the time tbh I have loads of work to do and I REALLY need to start proper revision for mocks- they're in 3 weeks.

    Maths: So today I only had one lesson which was maths! We managed to finish chapter 6 of S2 (it's quite short) on sampling but I really don't like it. It's pretty straightforward but there's a lot of writing involved and it doesn't feel like maths I much prefer 'proper' maths like integration! Also we have an integration test on Friday and I haven't done much for it as I've been ill. I'm counting on not going in on Friday so hopefully we'll miss it!

    Tomorrow I plan on doing loads seeing as I'm not going to college. I need to revise for integration, revise chapter 6 for maths and do maths homework. When I revise for maths I watch exam solutions videos and make notes, then I do all the questions in the textbook and then do past paper questions by topic on physics and maths tutor. And then next Tuesday we'll have a test on an organic chemistry chapter and I need to revise for that especially as organic chemistry is not my strongest area!

    I need to do LOADS for economics. I barely ever do any work for, I need to start writing all (well the important!) essays! I need to write an essay on poverty and inequality that I never wrote oops. And I need to make notes on AD and AS from last year on poverty and inequality. I still have no AS notes for econ I really need to get a move on...

    I'm also gonna finish my AS chem notes but I'm very nearly done! I've also not looked at ANY of the AS FM I self taught over the summer, or S1 which I'm retaking! If I have any time, I'll do this tomorrow (or Friday if we hopefully don't have to go in) but generally I plan to do AS stuff, as it's 'easier' at the weekend.

    So tomorrow I'm going to wake up at 5 and start my work at 8. I plan to work all day (although I'll obviously take breaks.) I also have some workouts planned for me to do throughout the day

    My inspirational quote for today is:
    "Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means you've decided to look beyond the imperfections."- Unknown

    That's good that it's not too different! Yeah that's a bit annoying Do you think I should still plan on completing it in my gap year?

    I think you should sit the new specification in 2019. You’ll have done AS so you’ll know most of the content. There may be a few gaps which you can cover and then learn the A-Level part and sit the exams. I’ll do it with you.

    Sounds like you’ve done a fair bit. I hope you feel better, not a good weather to be feeling unwell in. You may want to start S1 and don’t forget about Economics!

    That’s true. In the new specification you have to do half of S1 and M1 for A-Level Maths.
