Õpilane's Grow Your Grades

About Me:
Hi everyone! I'm an ambitious year 9 student with dreams of going to an Oxbridge University one day. This is my first TSR post but I've seen a lot of these going around and it sounded like something I wanted to do, so here I am Here's a bit about me first:

Subjects:
-English Language
-English Literature
-Maths
-Biology
-Chemistry
-Physics
-Religious Education
-Computer Science
-French
-Spanish
-Further Maths
-Statistics

In my school we use a target grade and progress grade system, your progress grade indicating how you performing in that subject at the time. These are very flexible and change a lot!

Target Grades:
-English: 8
-Maths: 8
-Science: 8
-French: 9
-Spanish: 9
-Computer Science: 9
-Further Maths And Statistics (I Study A Combined Course): 7
-Religious Education: 9

Progress Grades (Spring Term):
-English: 8
-Maths: 8-
-Science: 9
-French: 8
-Spanish: 8
-Computer Science: 8
-Further Maths: 7
-Religious Education: 7

I am really happy with all of these grades, but any revision tips / resources that could bring them up to grade 9s are always appreciated!

I'm not going to have an update schedule, but I'll post whenever I can. Enjoy!

The all-important tag list:

Great results and best of luck!

But try to relax with uni goals - it's not a good idea to be fixated on just one and you never know what situation you'll be in in 4 years

I think generally people tag every post made. I've got more than I ever expected based on my awful grades for sure.

I personally don't have a gyg unfortunately, I'm just that guy who reads everyone elses. My university grades are definitely better than my A-level and GCSE grades. I may do a gyg for my masters though! :P

Ah sorry I thought that's what you meant earlier - do whatever you think would work for you. I was a gyg reader for months! Good luck in your masters though, thanks so much for checking out my threads What are you studying?

Ahahaha generally you tag people into your daily posts on progress.
This is a good example of how RazzzBerries does hers.

I study Business Management at Swansea and will move onto Public Policy for my Masters. Then I may do PhD in Development Studies maybe?, depending on how well I will cope with my full time job and Masters at the same time. Literally studying as a hobby basically.

Yeah! The thing is years ago I absolutely hated studying anything with my biggest hate being languages and I did subjects I was awful at for A-level such as Biology and Chemistry so I chose Business as a means to an end and out of desperation. I am so happy I have dug myself out of my self-made hole and I can finally study what I want. I am now studying Mandarin and German too, funny how times can change with age.

Moral of the story: Work hard
