    Rolls_Reus_Owner's GYG Thread
    The Dream
    Year 13


    Before you even look below, I would personally read this old gyg to show how I was before for motivation (kind of motivation, kinda like what not to do lol.): https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...396&highlight=








    Hi, I am about to start one of the most stressful years of my life and my last year in my high school (YEAR 13).The Reason I have made this GYG is to inform the people that no requirements will stop me from being who I want to be. I also need motivation for this to work lol and any advice in revision for my subjects specifically would be helpful (I'm a visual learner I think). Any questions are appreciated .

    Background:

    HOWEVER..





    [/center]

    This is about to change, I know after weeks thinking about it I want to do either Mechanical or Aerospace engineering because I want to be an INVENTOR who can one day change the world for the better (Without a Physics A-level).

    Good luck! I went from achieving DEEU at AS to getting ABB at A2. Many told me/hinted i was dumb and should settle for a lesser path in life, but with hard work i was able to improve in a short amount of time.
    Your goal is totally possible but only if you put enough effort in!

    Ya boi is back. I went to a few local libraries on quest to search for some engineering books to get a better understanding on it. I cam across a book called Modern Engineering Mathematics Forth Edition which I found interesting to read. I will borrow it next time I go and use it to add information in my personal statement!

    Today, I will also be doing (Right Now):
    - Binomial Coefficients(Done)

    Need to be fully confident for this math retake since its a hard one to pass.

    Special: I like various types of music which is cool I guess so here is my song recommendation.

    I assume you take Bio and chem (lucky you lol). Bio is just memorising a lot of stuff and applying to different situations so it is recommended that you do as many past papers as possible and the same thing for chem. Smash that UKCAT/BMAT and go conquer your A-levels!

    Yeah the change is crazy, I don't think that you'd ever have thought that you'd be like this a few months ago.
