    Today was a very sunny day!
    I managed to do some Chemistry Revision, mainly on Alkenes, doing past papers and shizzle. I need some more work on polymers and how they can be used sustainably.
    Also went to the gym after, to do some light cardio and practice my form on the bench press.
    Finally, went to volunteer at the hospital before doing a bit more biology revision.

    Hopefully tomorrow is just as sunny!

    Today was also a sunny day! Hurray!
    Went to the library and updated my chemistry notes. Made a few flash cards about polymers.
    Did an applied Maths paper and struggled a bit on binomial distribution. Need to revise a bit on that!
    Finally, did made some notes on Mitosis, ready for the week back to school! Keeping organised and hopefully tomorrow is just as sunny!

    Hi friend!
    Glad you’re enjoying the sun! My favourite a level at the moment is maths! I have a really good class and I feel the lessons are very relaxed but I learn lots as well!

    What about yours? 😊

    Today was not as sunny but a nice day nevertheless!
    Went over my flashcards today, going over the transport mechanisms in plants.
    Did one more applied Maths paper and it went quite well! I should focus more on pure in my future revision.
    Finally did most of a chemistry paper that we were set to do during Easter. Haven't finished it but will do tomorrow!

    Off to work now!

    Hopefully tomorrow is sunny!

    Today was also rainy!
    Started off by doing some biology past papers, should practice a bit more tomorrow as I am a bit wobbly on subjects like transport in plants.
    Did a pure maths paper, at around lunch time and finally finished of the day with some revision on alkanes! Quite confident on alkanes overall, just need to review a bit of radical substitution!

    Hopefully tomorrow is sunny!

    Haven’t updated in a few days I forgot, ahah!
    Today was not fairly sunny!

    For the past few days I have been updating my flash cards.
    Yesterday I did one chemistry past paper on reactivity trends! Feeling fairly confident about the mock we are going to have after Easter!!

    Hopefully tomorrow is even sunnier!

    Sorry to hear you have a bad teacher, I find I am having a similar issue in Biology.
    I hope it all goes good for you though! Keep working hard

    Today was very sunny!
    Managed to finish all my Easter homework ready for the day back then went to the gym.
    Now going to relax a bit, going to review my biology and chemistry flash cards.

    Hopefully tomorrow is just as sunny!

    Went back to school today!
    Really enjoyed seeing everyone. Luckily our chemistry test has been postponed.

    Did a Jan 2012 paper on Chains, Energy and Resources. Managed to score 85% which is an A!! Giving me hope for the test, found out I need to work on understanding CFCs depleting the ozone layer. Then went over my flash cards and now calling it a day!

    Hopefully tomorrow is just as sunny!

    GOT AN A IN MY BIOLOGY MOCK WOO!
    Felt very reassuring! I feel as if though I am on the right track; one moth till the A2 Transfer exams, hopefully I can maintain this grade.

    Today I continued on with my revision for the Chemistry mock exam as well as doing a bit of pure and applied maths revision.
    Did a 2013 Atoms Bonds and Groups past paper and managed to find some more areas to improve on: mainly just being careful!
    Finally, went over my flashcards on quizlet and at last did some questions on bond enthalpy as I was struggling a bit on those calculations.

    Hopefully tomorrow is just as sunny!
