    I don't get why everyone says 'Grow your grades (GYG) and not 'Grow my grades' (GMG) since you're growing your grade and no anyone else's :hmmmm: but anyhow...


    My name is *guess what* but until you do you can call me Luna :hi: Nice to meet whoever reads my blog - most likely will be people I know, if not anyone then myself at least so HI Luna :proud:

    My subjects:
    Spoiler:
    Show



    Biology (recent mock grade: B)
    chemsitry (B)
    Maths (C3 - E)

    All crammed revision in 3 weeks :facepalm: hence the E in maths I guess but I thought I did better than that.

    I am doing the new specification so biology and chemistry is linear, however Maths isn't. Resitting AS this year and doing:
    C1
    C2
    S1
    C3
    C4 ?
    M1 :mad2:

    you can probably tell which ones I like and which ones I don't by now




    What I want to study at university:
    Spoiler:
    Show



    Applied for biochemistry but want to do optometry at Manchester uni now - so switching my course before it starts if possible - will keep updating about that.
    I will be going keele ( if I go with biochemistry - unconditional if firm/ BBC offer lowered) or Manchester (if I end up going for optometry - AAB )




    Why I got the grades I did in my mock:
    Spoiler:
    Show



    Biology - started revision earlier than the other subjects (4 weeks?) but still not enough. Revised a topic, then practice questions for that topic straight after. highlighted key bits from the mark scheme to know what gets me the mark and added them to my notes (really useful!)
    but I did have a look at what topics were on the 2017 paper from the unofficial MS on TSR :erm:
    My biggest struggle with biology is that it has too much content to cover and memorise, and that I take too much time on those application/data questions.
    Need to practice loads of essays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Chemistry - started revision really late but did loads of practice questions. Watched youtube videos (ERintoul = my savior)
    Should have done more exams PAPERS and revised my practicals. Struggled the most with practical questions on paper 3.

    Maths - Watched examsolution tutorials (only on trig and topics I struggled on) and did 4 to 5 exam papers which I didn't do well in. Ran out of time for revision. My weakness is definitely trig :bawling:
    Didn't do enough past papers = my E :sad:




    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Everyday Routine:
    For the next 4 months, if I am not eating, not sleeping, not showering or doing house chores, then I should be revising! I can have an hour in the day to do whatever I want :mmm: so if I do the calculations:
    Sleeping getting up and ready - 8 hours
    Eating - 2 hours
    House chores - 1 hour
    College - 8 hours, including 3 x 1 hour free.

    Leaves me with 5 hours to study, with 10 minute breaks every hour (allowed TSR in that time ), I'm left with 4 hours revision at HOME. and 2 or 3 hours at college. I can always cut down in sleep if I take too much free time

    On weekends I have 12 hours.

    IF YOU SEE ME ONLINE ON TSR FOR MORE THAN 10 MINUTE PLEASE SHOUT AT ME!!

    Good luck! You've plenty of time to improve that maths grade so I'm sure it will turn out just fine And it's good you know where you need to improve as well
    Glad to see you know which aspect of applied is better :yay:

    I see your point about GYG/GMG...I guess it's just because those naming it weren't growing their grades so they set it as GYG and it just stuck :dontknow:

    I haven't been much on here which imo is a good thing because it means I've been doing other things :lol:
    Revising wise I didn't do anything for the past 3 days but today I did some work for a long time but when I looked back at it, it didn't seem much at all so little time, so little energy but so much to do :argh:

    My lessons are all over the place.
    Chemistry teacher leaving in 3 weeks why just before our exams??
    Maths - one of the 2 teachers that I have has gone on maternity leave. We're meant to have a cover teacher for him but no one turned up today. Looks like we won't finish M1 afterall... I hope we do

    There was this day when the door and roof got damaged slightly because of the wind and snow so the building hasld to be evacuated! Was a funny day tbh :lol:

    And then another day I only had 30 mins lesson because all of them got cancelled and my maths teacher had to go to a meeting half way through the lesson hence the 30 mins.

    I feel so sad that people don't appreciate me. They don't pile talking to me, they think I'm a boring person.

    And there is this one person, despite knowing alot bout my life tends to ignore me but ever so smoothly that I don't realise. But I do. She behaves so nicely in front of me, but she never talks to me like she does to others.
    She never tells me anything. Hell she got an interview a few days ago and never told me, yet calls me her 'fav' and talks on text as if we were best friends. The entire school knew BUT me... Like come one, i cant be that bad....
    As soon as we see each others face its as if she just doesn't wanna talk. Smile on her face but she quickly goes to someone else.....

    Why am I not loved by them? I'm starting to doubt everyone else's love too...is it fake, just like her seems?

    Some day I say to myself I am going to ignore everything and just focus on the people who I know love me the most but I cant just ignore them because they might think i don't like them when that's not the case

    I don't use it, it's just the fact I've been introduced to it and know about it. Maybe just ask the post and stuff I've seen at the beginning, they're all in my mind and i keep thinking about it. Why I'm not there eventhough I'm supposed to be one of their best friends.
    Everything feels fake since

    Some good ppl left too though. Alhamdulillah

    Nah
