Hey! My name is Morenike and I am predicted 3 As in Biology, Chemistry and Geography. For me this is going to be a very challenging journey.

In terms of GCSEs I got 1A*, 1D*(distinction star), 7 As, 1B and 2 Cs. So in my opinion I did pretty good but at the same time it's not like they were AMAZING and I could have definitely worked harder to improve some of my grades.

I have decided to take part in Grow your Grades so I can track my own progress and so that I can help motivate people in a similar position to myself who need to work that little bit harder to achieve their goals no matter how unlikely they seem.

I will be posting weekly on TSR regular updates about my performance on Monday mornings around 9.00GMT. Additionally, I have a blog called not so teenage teen which can be accessed here. On here I will will share self-care and general tips and advice as well as review and what ever pops in my mind. More importantly I will also regularly write posts on tips and habits which have been helping me both at school and during general life. Links to all the useful stuff will be posted on her alongside my weekly updates.

Feel free top comment anything you want and if you have any questions or blog post ideas!

Hellooo! Its me again

I haven't posted since the first post because I have honestly been so busy with work and life.

Since my last post I got my Geography Coursework Grade (unmodified so it could change after modification), I had my Mocks and I have started properly revising for my exams.

Let's talk about MOCKS
To start with I'll briefly talk about my Year 12 Mocks;
-Geography E
-Biology A (but I knew the answers because they used a paper we all had access to so realistically, I would have got a C)
-Chemistry E
So as you can see I did pretty bad based on my goals.
Due to my poor performance in Year 12 Mocks, my school was very reluctant to predict me three As but with a lot of hassle I managed to get my Predicted grades of BBB moved up to AAA.

In Year 13 Mocks I got;
-Geography A* (I ended up getting an A in my coursework which brought my overall grade down to an A which I can handle)
-Biology B (but I was a few marks off an A which I could have easily have got if I did not miss out the last two long answer questions at the back of the 2018 Paper 1)
-Chemistry D (but I literally didn't revise that much and the couple of topics I did revise, I got 100% on all the questions proving I can do well, I just need consistency).

All in all, I was pleased (ish) with my Mock grades and if I start working hard from now on, I am certain that I can achieve (or scrape) A*AA.
I will post maybe next month a blog post on how to achieve I strong grade in Geography coursework as there was literally nothing vaguely helpful online which definitely made things harder.

Hope you are all making the progress you want be making and I promise that I will definitely start writing once a week (hopefully every Monday)

Hi again!

I am currently at school (I am having a revision break) so I decided to do a quick update.

I feel like currently, I am on top of my work but it is literally only Tuesday so everything could change by Wednesday (lol):cool:

Anyways, yeah I am quite tired and all but no more tired than I usually am. I am making sure that I get to school early (like an hour before school starts). I found this has really helped me out. If I am behind on homework, the early mornings really help me get back up quickly with little stress and I live about 30 minutes away from school so it's not like I am getting no sleep.

I am currently doing gene expression and some other genetics topic in biology, In chemistry I have just finished Analysis and am in the middle-end of Transition metals and in Geography, I am coming to end of most things so hopefully by Easter will mainly be revision and recap of topics we all did bad in.

HEY! QuIcK UpDaTe !!!!!!!
I have been working on getting on top of everything at school as it is very obvious that everything is going to be quite a tight squeeze but I am managing. The main thing is ensuring I get enough rest and that the new stuff that I am learning stays in my head. I have applied for accommodation at university and will explain the process more at a later date. I will post a proper post later this week!xxx
