I'm currently taking Maths, Chemistry and Physics, with the aim of doing as well as I can in each. I'm notorious for procrastinating, and i'm trying to stop doing so

Started today by making a mind map for Physics (Turning Points - Discovery of the Electron). I'm hoping to use it to test myself, and gradually make it less and less detailed

I also did a Chemsitry (2017 new syllabus) past paper, and got 45/90 (C). A lot of work to do but I was able to understand where I went wrong - particular topics I need to focus on are Equilibria and Transition metals

Going to do an old syllabus unit one paper for physics tomorrow

So I had a bit of a change of plan on Saturday as I met up with some friends, and did the 2009 paper for physics yesterday instead Got an A (1 mark over the boundary) which i'm over the moon about

Today i've set myself a lot (1 C3 paper, 2 C4 papers and 1 physics unit 2 old syllabus paper) but i'm hopefully going to achieve it if I focus

Probably had my most productive day for a long time today. I did 4 past papers (C3 (A*), two C4 (B,A), Physics P1 (B, one mark off an A)) and am feeling really happy about the results

Had lots of chocolate which may have helped :giggle:

Going to do some turning points questions for physics tomorrow and a chemistry past paper
