Welcome to my Grow Your Grades. For those of you that don't know me, I'm Jax and I am in year 11, so heading towards GCSEs. This blog is there to inspire me and to help me achieve all B's and above in my exams.

Here's a list of my subjects and the grade I got at the end of year 10.
Reds = Below target, and not happy
Orange = Below target, don't mind
Green = At target and happy
Blue = At Aspirational
English Language | 5A | Target 7 | Aspirational 8
English Literature | 6A | Target 7 | Aspirational 8
Maths | 5B | Target 6 | Aspiration 7
Science Combined | 5B | Target 6 | Aspiration 7
Religious Studies | 4C | Target 6 | Aspiration 6
Computer Science | 6C | Target 6 | Aspiration 6
Business Studies | 4A | Target 6 | Aspiration 7
History | 5C | Target 6 | Aspiration 7
Photography | 6C | Target 6 | Aspiration 6


Hopefully I'll be updating this every Friday with test results and how much revision I've done per subject during that week. Hopefully, I'll be able to get 8 grade 6's and above. But that will depend on my work.

These are the current grades I'm working at:

This week has been an eventful one for me, which is why I didn't have the time to update this blog but now I have.

This week I completed my final ten flashcards for my History exam on Conflict and Tension [1918-1939] and I have completed a maths exam paper which I wasn't happy with the results of. I got 16/60 which would equate to an e and 1 mark of a d [a 3] so as you can tell I am fuming. Need to work harder on maths revision.

Over the next week, I plan to revise more about computer science as I am expecting my marks back from the test we did on Thursday, and would like to complete 25 America flashcards.

Here's my weekly study plan:
Monday - Computer Science: The CPU & Exam questions on the CPU.
Tuesday - History - America flashcards
Wednesday - English Literature - Romeo and Juliet reading
Thursday - Chemistry: The Atom
Friday - Maths: Plans of shapes. America flashcards
Saturday - Romeo and Juliet reading
Sunday - Homework, Business Studies: Enterprise

So here is the updates for this week. I didn't actually complete all of the tasks that I had prepared to do, but I managed to do my Monday tasks, Norman England revision and the homework for it. I managed to do my business revision and some of my computer science exam questions, and I did some of my Photography catch up on Friday, during my study period.

I took a couple of tests this week and got my grades back for my maths and english:
Maths, half paper [1] non-calculator, 21/45 which would roughly equate to a grade 6 according to my teacher.
Maths, half paper [2] calculator 25/46, which would roughly be a grade 7 which is an A on the old spec.
English Language, full paper 1, 58/80 which would be a grade 7 according to the grade boundaries from last year, my teacher wasn't exactly happy with the whole classes results but mine were fine. By the time we get our mocks back in December, I want to be getting 65 marks for paper 1.

STUDY PLAN FOR THE WEEKEND:
Saturday: || There would be more if I wasn't going book shopping. ||
Biology exam question in timed conditions on meiosis vs mitosis
History flashcards for America. I want to finish book one's flashcards by Monday's study period so then I can start book two's on Monday.

Sunday: || Four Tasks, No Choice ||
Poetry mindmaps for War Photographer and for Kamikaze.
Biology revision on B6 - DNA and Pummett Squares
Maths revision - Alegbraic Proof
Computer Science homework.

Hey lovelies! Last week was a good week for me in terms of studying and participating in classes but the way I planned out my days, did not mean that I had enough time or energy to fit in homework, so as a result of that, I ended up swapping some tasks from Thursday and Friday with homework.
