1)If you organise yourself correctly you will rarely get stressed over the workload and content. Stuff like using your planner and making notes / revision material as you go along helps. Make sure to ask questions when stuck and go over stuff you weren't quite sure about in lessons.

2) I heard for sciences application is very different to GCSEs however I do English literature, history and RE and I find that they're more or less the same but with more broad questions that make you think about the content overall instead focusing on something specific.

I was considering bio but it was best for me to do something more related to the degree I wanted to do at uni. I'm glad I didn't do it cause I would be struggling lol

Think about your brain. Not in the intellectual sense, but in the physical sense, as a mass of flesh. Inside your relatively brittle skull. Picture that mass of flesh just by itself, sitting there, producing everything you are. That's f*cking nuts.

Also I may be a little high right now. #StonerThoughts

Shite, I didn't even ask a question. Urm...how's the weather in Uganda?

For history there was kind of a change that got me feeling uneasy at the start but as time went by I got used to it and I'm feeling really confident now in the subject. English I saw little change such as the texts getting harder and more.broader questions, for RE however I didn't do it at GCSE so I wouldn't know. I'm not the smartest student I only got 3 As 1 B and 4 Cs at GCSE. So far everything is going really well, I'm on doing better then expected and looking to push myself further. I'm applying to do Law
