Dear A grades,
You know I want you.
It's not a secret I try to hide.
But fate is pulling you miles away, and out of reach from me.
But you're here in my heart
So who can stop me if I decide
That you're my destiny?What if we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine
Nothing could keep us apart
You'd be the one I was meant to find
It's up to you, and it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
So why don't we rewrite the stars?

Yours sincerely,
Z A R A

To all *The Greatest Showman* fans out there, have I made it obvious enough? 😂


🙌🙌*WELCOME TO MY GYG* 🙌🙌

Where we we will rewrite the stars!🌌 (notice the modal verb *will*). It means we CAN DO IT!

Since everybody starts with their grades, that's what I will introduce first.
Spoiler:

AS: I hate writing these out they make me feel like a failure 😩😩😩
Biology C - Ugh Cs are so disappointingly disappointing.
English Lit and Lang B - I was getting As all year - thanks to poor time management I got a C in my Othello essay. 😢
Maths D - I stupidly spent all my frees doing maths - I regret taking it in the first place.
Chemistry D - This was depressing - what more can I say?


Following the spoiler, I want to improve on Chemistry and Biology THE MOST and now that I have dropped maths (what a relief!), I can spend more time on these.
Also, I have recognised that my revision technique was actually the worst thing you could ever do according to 4th year medical student at Cambridge ALI ABDAAL who advised against *everything* I did last year which was:
  • Rewriting notes
  • Rereading chapters
  • Underlining
  • Highlighting large chunks of text

I have now changed my revision techniques which I will be sharing in the next post!

Anyway, what am I predicted, based on work ethic and AS grades?
And below that what did I get in GCSE (somehow the spoiler didn't want to move - how do you move this thing on a phone?)

So I'm going to have to say thanks for reading from here.
We will rewrite the stars - okay? Haha
See you around TSR.

ABB English, Biology and Chemistry respectively.

But I don't care what they're going to say, I want three As and that's that.
(Maybe even a cheeky lil A* in English because I love it so much haha)

*GCSEs*:
Arabic (yah I'm Arab😀) A*
English Literature 8
English Language 8
ICT (BTEC) D*
Mathematicãs 8 (God knows how)
Biology A
Chemistry A
Physics A (that was the biggest transformation seriously I used to get Es and D's at the beginning of Year 11)
Geography A
History A
Film Studies A
ICT (GCSE) B ( I was getting A*s all year but my coursework was **** - I hate coursework with a passion 😣😣😣)
Statistics B (this was pure torture - we sat it in Year 9 as well 😰)

Hi!!!
This is just a quick question and not a real update (sorry - I'm saving it for tomorrow!) After my disappointing grades last year, I've decided to invest in revision guides for the whole A level course. On Amazon, I'm seeing two different Biology/ Chemistry revision books. The 2018 version, with the orange 'Biology' or 'Chemistry' and the older 2015 versions, which is approx £10 cheaper 😜. Problem is: I don't know what to buy, the 'new' AQA spec began 2015, so I'm worried if I get the 2015 version, will I be missing out on a substantial amount?
Anybody else studying the same subjects? What revision guide(s) do you own? And are they worth the money? Thanks.

My exam board is OCR so it might be different, but I think you might want to buy revision guides for the new spec because I have found quite a few new topics. I use the CGP guides and they are the best revision guides you can have. When you buy it, it also comes with a free online version so you can see if you can get the online one from one of your friends who have bought it to save money.

I personally don't like revision guides so can't help you with whether they're worth it, but if you do plan on getting one, get the one that's relevant to your spec. There'll be new content or maybe some extra 'exam technique' tips that might not crop up in old spec revision guides.

Okay, that is what the majority are saying. I'll order them today. Thanks for replying!
