Reach for the Cloud 9(s)


13.08.19 (happy left hander's day)
hi, i'm fatma, this is my year 11 gyg. i love writing, ranting and sharing study tips and experiences, and would love a way to look back on my documented exam season in the coming years.

my largest ambition is to read medicine at lady margaret hall, oxford

>>>here's some more about me

my favourite subjects: biology, philosophy, chemistry
least favourite: geography or physics
a-levels?: bio, chem, philosophy + medical EPQ

outside of lessons
- debating society member
- first aider
- founder and leader of my school's medical society
- volunteer weekly at nursing home
- work experience at GP surgery in summer of year 10
- avid reader (consuming books at an unhealthy rate)

my year 10 "mock" results
[Edexcel iGCSE] Biology- 8
[Edexcel iGCSE]Chemistry- 8
[OCR] English Language- 7
[OCR] English Literature- 9
[CIE] French- 7
[OCR A] Geography- 7
[AQA] History- 9
[Edexcel iGCSE] Maths- 6 (maths teacher won't give actual grades until december so we don't get complacent)
[WJEC Eduqas] Philosophy and Belief- 9
[Edexcel iGCSE] Physics- 7

my aims of year 11
> try to be as stress-free as possible
> all 9s (erm...)
> furthering my medical application

thanks for reading!

Wow a future medic! Good luck with everything tho, you seem to be really motivated compared to old me. Don't even ask me what I was doing back in year 10. Don't worry too much about your mock grades - first of all they're really good and secondly you have a lot of time to improve on it!

Yep it does! GCSEs literally pop up from nowhere ... but somehow I felt that yr12 was quicker for some reason

21.08.19: the prodigal poster returns
hi! so today is the day before GCSE results, just want to say good luck to anyone who might be reading!

- finished all notes for all subjects except english lit and physics
- done some stationery shopping at WH Smith (day folder, further maths folder, black pens, miscellaneous items such as flashcards)
-filmed an intro for my first youtube video!

how's everyone week been? school's starting soon, and i'm not as hyped/stressed as i thought i'd be????

Did you finish your notes for what you have done so far in class or the whole curriculum?
Can I be tagged?
