Maizie's Summer GYG!
Hey, :wavey: I'm Maizie and I start my A-Levels in September. :eek3: I have decided to make a GYG to help motivate for the summer. :unsure: (hopefully). This GYG is only for the summer and I'll start a proper GYG in September. Link here.

Hey and thanks. Hmm, I know I want to go to uni but I'm not sure what I want to study yet, after going to two courses this summer I am thinking probably Astrophysics (I have also considered/am considering Architectue or Engineering - probably civil or structural). As you can probably tell I am not really that sure yet. I might take a gap year too, but not to go travelling, maybe for work experience and time. :laugh: What about you? Are you in school or uni?

You might not be certain but you’ve got a general idea- That’s a step in the right direction!

I’m about to enter my last year of sixth form (It’s a Year 14 though, although I’m not resitting anything) to then hopefully start a law degree in September 2019. ☺️

Yah, I suppose, I've been looking into the three subjects and so far I am finding astrophysics the most interesting.
Ah, interesting. How come you are in year 14 if you don't mind me asking? (if you do just ignore my question ) And do you have any advise for starting A-Levels?

Don't let work pile up and study as you go. Do not rely on cramming in any scenario, doing GCSE strats at A level will f your life and world up. Strats like memorising revision guides will not get you what you look for. Do problem sheets etc. Also for maths use exam solutions on youtube.

Thanks for the advise, yeah for my GCSEs I definitely did do some last minute revision. For one history test I didn't actually finish revising the course but I still think it went well :laugh: :unsure: I definitely won't do that for A-Levels :eek3: I think my tactic for my A-Levels will be writing and condensing notes throughout the year and past papers. I never used revision guides at GCSE

Im just saying the step up from GCSE to A level will hit you like a fricking bus. If you dont work all the way along, prepare to literally fail your first set of exams. You have to work to get all B's let alone A's or A*'s.

I didnt revise for my GCSE's got 5A* 3A's. I tried revising quite a bit more it at A level first set of exams in Jan i got B's down to D's. Luckily back then you could resit modules. Work your little butt off.You need to be putting at least 9-5 every day 5 days a week with a couple hours on weekend to keep ahead and hit those A's and above.

GCSE is a great qualification for ********ters. A levels not so much.

I have done the new set of GCSEs so the gap is a little less :unsure: although I am not expecting to get As immediately, apart from German as I have been doing the course for the last 2 years at a really so pace (and with a gap during year 10 and 11 exam season). I'll try my hardest, hopefully this thread will keep me motivated to put in the hours. I hope to see you around on this thread

German: A* :woo:


Next year I am planning on taking Maths, Further Maths, Physics and German. To be honest I’m not really sure what grades I aiming for but A*AAA seems like a good place to start. I know I want to get an A* in German as I am bilingual :woo: but that’s as far as I know.
I am currently enjoying my long summer holidays and haven’t been particularly productive which is fine :laugh: So far this summer I have:
- Started making notes on the first and sixth chapters of the Physics A-Level course.
- Attended two summer schools, one for engineering and the other for physics/astrophysics (which was actually for year 12s so my work on the A-Level course was actually really useful

I’ll probably just make posts of my plans each week and how I am coping. May the A-Level work commence (is that even a sentence that makes sense?)

Hi I’m doing a levels too!! But I’m doing chemistry, biology and psychology hoping to study dentistry at uni!! Super super scared about results day!😭But so far this summer I have:
• been learning Spanish, sign language and mandarin
• been doing a psychology course (which ngl I do kinda regret....feel like I should’ve just made notes from the textbook!)
• been reading the head start to chemistry and biology
Right now I might just pause with the psychology course and just made notes from the textbook! And my aim is to finish reading the head starts before I go to last Vegas next Monday!🌿

Ahhh I see! Btw you can get Head Start revision guides by CGP for maths and physics! I got mine form WHSmith but you can get it on kindle etc. 🧡🧡

Weekly Plan: 30/07/18

Hey, :wavey: this is my first update. I’m just going to list what I want to do across the week and at the end of the week I will update on how much I managed to complete.
I may add some things throughout the week too if I miss anything out.

So, this weeks to do list::eek3:
- Make notes for physics: Section 3: 6.4 – 8.0. So I will hopefully complete two subsections a day (I have reduced this from the original so it fits better next week :shh:
- Complete the first section of my maths prep work(which I started ages ago but never completed).
- Start recapping on the first section of the German AS course: The environment.

Some non-academic stuff::woo:
- Listen to my audiobook
- Do some art
- Watch a filmrather than sit around doing nothing (it makes no sense :laugh:)
- practice my violin:eek3:

Yeah, that's about it, I'll see how I go this week and maybe have some mini updates

GREEN=COMPLETED ORANGE=IN PROGRESS RED = INCOMPLETE PURPLE = UNABLE TO COMPLETE

P.S: I have tagged some people, if you dont want to be tagged/want to be tagged just ask.
