My name is Natasha.

I love Marmite but hate revising!

:elefant:

This is my journey from the (22nd Feb 2019) till GCSE Results day 2019.

I am 16 and doing my GCSE's in Summer 2019. I realise this is unusually late but I have only just discovered this scheme, so I thought I might as well give it a try. I am planning to go on and do A-levels next year. And hopefully, plan to go to university.

My predicted grades:

AQA English Literature (Macbeth, Inspector Calls, A Christmas Carol and the Power and Conflict Cluster): 8
AQA English Language: 8
Edexcel Maths (higher):5
AQA Combined Science (higher):66
AQA French (foundation):5
AQA Geography: 7
WJEC/EDUQAS Art: 7
Edexcel History (cold war, civil rights&vietnam war, Elizabeth and warfare through time):8

My recent Mock exam grades (Dec 2018)
english lit:7
english lang:8
maths:4
combined science:44
french, at this point I hadn't dropped down to foundation: 4
geography: 6
art:5
history:8

I have applied to Various colleges and Sixth form's, and the A-Levels I have chosen are History, Politics, English literature and at college, Photography and Sixth form, English Language. This is purely based on the different courses there are.

I am one of those people who have to try exceptionally hard to be able to do well in school even in subjects I am naturally talented in. I constantly put myself under pressure and procrastinate by thinking about my looming exams. I do realise that in a year when I am well into my A-levels, I will look back and laugh at how much I worried and stressed for some GCSE's that don't really matter after.

:banana:Random facts about me :banana:

I have two German Shepherds, Riggs and Indi.
I am currently on Holiday, Skiing in Switzerland.
I live in Lancashire
I love watching Gilmore Girls and Grey's anatomy.
I swim regularly for a swim club.
I love scrolling through ASOS and Instagram (odd combination I know but I love shopping and looking at cute corgis)

This is my steep uphill climb to getting my grades on track again, and therefore my revision and life diary. I hope to hide nothing and therefore not hide from my own problems!

Just so you know I am a HUGE procrastinator.

Today was my first day back after my holiday, and as much as I was tired I tried hard to throw myself back into the swing of the things. I will update later tonight on my progress after my homework/revsison.
