    Welcome to my Grow Your Grades GCSE blog...thing...!

    Hi! I'm Emma, also known as mulan.themermaid.

    • I'm a stressed 16 year old who has absolutely no life because of the heaps and heaps of school work which is dumped on me ( which I'm sure you can all relate to)... saying that I didn't really have a life before my GCSEs started either ahaha:cool:
    • Also I am the biggest procrastinator EVER. I literally leave everything to last minute. My type of revision is planning my revision and then staring at my plan instead of completing my plan. Anyone else do that, or just me?
    Spoiler:
    Show

    The GCSEs I'm taking:

    Double award Science (WJEC) - target grade of a C (in yr 10 - and was questioned as to why I want to sit higher tier but proved them wrong by getting a B in each science for yr1, and want another B or higher for yr2)

    English Language (WJEC) - (I have got an overall C)

    English Lit (WJEC) - target grade of a C but really really want higher.

    Psychology (edexcel) I have absolutely no idea to be honest about the grade and subject hahaha... as long as I pass I'm happy

    Catering (WJEC AND A JAMIE OLIVER THING) I'm hoping for a distinction..?

    Art (WJEC) my target grade is a C, but my teacher said I can achieve a lot higher, so I am hoping for at least a B but hopefully an A

    Then there's some other things like RE - A?, Welsh Bacc - M2?, Welsh - I honestly could not care less about, OH YEAH MATHS - I've achieved a C on Higher tier but I'm choosing to resist on the off chance I can do better if I REVISE!!

    *that very awkward moment when you can't think of the subject's you study in school... *


    Anyway...
    I know I'm late to the GYG parade but... I'm hoping that this will motivate me into doing revision so that I can get the grades I think I'm capable of if i put in the effort. I am fed up of school telling me my target grades (mainly c's) and not encouraging me to achieve more or telling me I cannot achieve more. So my motivation for this blog is to grow my grades to prove to myself I can do it and to prove the people who doubted me wrong.

    Also I really do not want to open that results paper and want to cry and regret the time I wasted, so, here I am!

    IT'S NOW OR NEVER.


    I'm off now! I hope you feel like you know me a bit better and can relate to the struggles of being a stressed procrastinator.

    I'll update you soon with some revision bits and bobs!

    Until then...

    Hey! I'm glad you like my GYG so far, I'll make sure to make updates often!
    I'm SO glad there's other procrastinators I can connect with through here.

    Psychology is great, it's so interesting, I love it but... it's so much work and so little time. I know that if you take it for a level though you'll find it so intriguing just prepare for a lot of studies to learn ahah!!

    I LOVE FOOD TOO honestly that's why I chose to study it so I could cook different things in school and each it at lunch ( we make a wide range of things from soups, to cakes to a two course meal!) but there is also all the boring written work...

    Thank you for believing that I can achieve my goals!

    Hi again:heart:

    It's finally half term WHOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!

    I've been waiting for this break for what feels like YEARS.
    All I want to do is relax and have a break from school... but...I should be revising for my mock exams which are all in the 1st week back! YAY can't wait. So instead of doing the preferred NOTHING I will be studying!

    Hopefully my procrastination will not get in the way, so to help prevent this I have made a clear list on what I want to accomplish in this week which will hopefully help me focus!

    My checklist:
    • Recap maths topics I struggle with e.g. studs
    • Revise the last 3 psychology topics and do past papers
    • Catering past papers
    • Check over RE notes
    • Complete a few pages in my exam sketchbook

    Wish me luck on combating procrastination...
    I'll keep you updated with my progress!
