    Hi! I am literally just deciding to write this as an excuse to stop my revision...probably not the wisest decision I've made but..

    Predicted grades for A-Levels 2018:
    Spoiler:
    Show


    Maths - A*
    Further Maths - A
    Psychology - A (honestly, i would be happy just to pass this!!!)



    My AS results 2017 (including a breakdown of UMS scores):
    Spoiler:
    Show


    Maths - A (284/300).... yes despite my good grade I still used a calculator to add up my total UMS. I am not sorry.
    Core 1: 98/100
    Core 2: 86/100
    Decision 1: 100/100

    Further Maths - A (245/300)
    FP1: 70/100
    M1: 77/100 (didn't count towards my AS grade but will count towards my A2 grade)
    S1: 93/100
    D2: 82/100



    Grades required for my firm University:
    Spoiler:
    Show


    Subject of choice: Mathematics
    Grades: AAA/A*AB



    January Mock results (i nearly had a heart attack):
    Spoiler:
    Show


    Maths: A* (74/75 )
    Further Maths: A*
    Psychology: A (swear I nearly went into a Cardiac arrest because i had been getting E's since the beginning of the course)


    As of this week, I am really starting to knuckle down with my revision. I haven't even completed the Psychology course yet, and can't remember anything from last year.

    I have started spending more time on my Psychology revision and my Maths grades have begin to slip so I really can't win.

    oh, and a tip for any people considering doing Further Maths:
    Spoiler:
    Show


    don't do FP2 (i am doing it, even though it's not compulsory, and i've considered setting myself on fire about 17 times since)




    I'm with the AQA exam board for all my subjects if anyone is curious.

    I got my mock results back, and I have to say...I am so incredibly happy!

    Spoiler:
    Show


    Maths: A*
    Further Maths: A
    Psychology A*

    PLEASE LET MY PSYCHOLOGY GRADE BE PROOF THAT HARD WORK PAYS OFF!!!! IT REALLY DOES! At the beginning of the year, my teacher wanted to throw me into the AS class because she was convinced I was going to fail....6 months later and I am out-performing a large majority of my class (not to brag ---- i am just so happy my less-active social life and endless hours of revision are proving worthy!)

    ITS NOT TOO LATE TO CHANGE YOUR GRADE AROUND


    My first A-Level will be in 13 days....FP3, Further Maths.....I can't say I'm looking forward to it.

    I will be back with updates.

    there's not much to say other than the fact that AQA clearly don't like the idea of people going to Uni.....
