Welcome to my 2018-2019 GYG, a half-term already in. Never mind, let's learn how to











Studdabble!

(please note that author was low on sleep when thinking of the title and so please excuse the cringes)




My abbreviation for studying and dabbling.

My goal for this first year in sixth form (yes, I am in Year 12) is to study efficiently while taking part in as many activities as I can. Seeing that I won't have the time to do all the activities I want to do, my goal is just casually try them out for a weekend or two and see whether I would do them in the unforeseeable future.

The aim of this "dabbling" is to get out more and push myself into new circumstances while balancing with the workload of A levels. I'll update you guys on how that goes.

Without further to do:

Current mood: :confused:

Not expecting the expected
(Or currently known as my rant on how I was unprepared for A Levels)

Biology: What went wrong:
Disclamer: I know that this may be common but I wanted to give my own view on it.
Second disclaimer: I was warned by people how hard A Levels are but I guess you never really know until you experience it.
- I was so unprepared for the weekly suprise pop test we got.
- The content we learned in a week would be equivalent to what we learned in a half term at GCSE
- It was really difficult at first. My teacher eased me in at first with a simple topic but when we moved in, I found some concepts hard to understand.
- We would go so fast in lessons, there would be no time to actually understand what is going on.

Spoiler:

A half term and a bit in, I have recovered from what I would say was a stressful half-term.
- Fortunately, I have caught up with my notes and I am now consolidating my notes every week.
- I have a plan to go over my notes the day of a Biology lesson, I will seem less unprepared for the suprise pop test.
- Using past papers, even this early, are useful with making notes, I would advise that to anyone.



There's my rant gone. How did you guys find your A Levels at first? How would you deal with my problems?

Yup, that definitely seems to be the thing about biology... it's really good that you've found ways to keep up though! How are the other subjects going?

A-levels are definitely overwhelming at first but once you just go through stuff and get into the swing of things, it actually isn't as bad. :nah: (ofc, that's just my opinion :giggle:)

Hi, my options are similar to yours (French, Latin and C.S instead of ICT) and I was wondering how you revised for them (and the sciences lol. Basically everything). Also what exam boards did you do? If you did Eduqas latin, could you tell me if you did the religion (3B) and how you revised for that.
Thanks, and congrats on the fab grades!
