I got an incredible 71/80 in a Physics Unit 1 paper, which is the highest raw score up to date, and it is another 100% UMS for sure, and the mark is 8 marks higher than the lowest boundary to achieve 100% UMS, which means I am one of the top students compared to that cohort!
(Actually, my score is in the top 7% of candidates, calculated by interpolation from Maths S1)

If I got an A grade in at least 4 of 5 uniform tests and topped the class in at least one of them, this will be the result of Liverpool vs Everton, to be played on 5/12/2019:

A 4-0 win is a fantastic result for a derby day! This is my motivation for now!

My first set of mocks are underway. The Chemistry paper was very easy, as most of the questions are from past papers, and I actually did more than half of the questions the night before.
I also bought some golden star stickers from a stationery shop today. I will put one sticker on every past exam paper or test/exam paper which I received an A.

I got a 60/80 in Chemistry (58 original +1 question cancelled +1 for teacher's marking error). I should have gotten all of the multiple choice questions correct, as I mixed up 2 questions and switched their answers with each other, while getting careless mistakes on 2 other questions. It was a 75%, which is fluctuating between A and B, depending on the exam series.

Here is an update:
I want to study data science, health physics or engineering in uni.
I have these choices:
UCAS- Manchester, UCL, Imperial, Sheffield, Warwick
Other countries- Sydney (Australia), Melbourne (Australia), (still considering...)
I am going for AAA-AAB (I am confident that I will get at least A in Maths and Physics), do I have good choices?

I got 58/80 (5 marks added because of marking error by teacher) in a Physics paper, which is enough for an A.
And it is the highest mark in the class!
Will be rewarding myself soon.

I have received 1 more mark in Chemistry, owing to teacher's marking error.
I only got 25/35 in the other Maths paper, consisting of P2, P3 and P4 topics, the latter 2 I am weaker in. So, when I do full papers, I will do some tiered ones from PMT as well. For P1, P2 and S1, I will only do the Gold papers, but for P3 and P4, I have to do the Silver ones first before the Gold ones.

My school has given me an improvement plan, which is optional, and doing it has a chance to win a book coupon from one of the largest outlets in HK.
I want to use this in conjunction to my GYG from now on, and will ask my teacher to follow this.

My extensive test schedule is back. After a Maths test on Integration By Parts was completed today, I have three Maths tests and a Physics test next week. I have downloaded almost 100 exercises from PMT to prepare for the tests.
My Maths teacher has also given me 2 books consisting of different types of questions, and I need to complete at least 60 pages in total for Christmas, but I have already done 37 pages. I think I will go on and do a double by completing 120 pages in total. If I failed any of these tests, the following will be the result of Leicester vs Liverpool, to be played on Boxing Day:

However, if I went on a really good run and received top (A) grades in all of them, this will be the result:

A 4-1 win against your closest title rival is a really great result!

After the school assembly today, I want to be what the guest has expected us!

So, I want to use the time on the buses to write scripts for some of my own revision songs and/or educational videos on A-level topics, so I can help not just myself, but more people taking the exams in the years to come! This is also a great opportunity, as after every swimming practice, there is always a traffic jam when I take the bus.

I have completed 3 Physics and Chemistry revision songs on the bus over the past 2 days. They include tunes from a hit of Blink 182 (The Rock Show), 'Sit Down' by James and the theme song of a Chinese movie.
And I have decided to start studying Topics 9 and 10 in Chemistry, leaving Topic 8 only to be covered for the first time at school, so I can start preparing for my Unit 2 exam earlier.

I have completed my last school day of the year, but I have some tests after Christmas break. I have two Maths tests (one postponed), a Physics test and a Chemistry test. If I failed any of these tests, this is the result of Tottenham vs Liverpool, to be played on 12/01/2020:

I have already finished Section 9A on my own in Chemistry! I have really utilised my bus time really well!
My very kind Chemistry teacher requires us to draw a concept map on all topics in Organic Chemistry, so I will do it not only for his required topic 4 and 5, but I will also do it for Topic 10, to exceed the requirements of the teacher!
My next set of mocks is in early March, and if I get A grades in all of the mocks, the following will happen:
(Announcer: ) After 3 decades, this team has finally done it, wrapping up the league title in a record-breaking season. So, please welcome the 2019/20 Premier League Champions, Liverpool FC!

I did not do well in my Physics test on light. Only 40% score.
As a result, I am going to spend a ****** long time (30 days) to prepare for my next 2 tests. They are in February, but I have started preparation since Jan 9.
If I failed any of these tests, these will be the results of Norwich vs Liverpool and Liverpool vs West Ham, to be played on 2 straight weekends in February:
