Grow your Grades 2019/2020! Watch
Grow your Grades is back again to help you get the grades you want! Start your GyG blog to document your journey from the beginning of your learning all the way through your exams and up to results day. Grow your Grades is now so much more than a simple blogging competition...
Why should I enter?
Enter for the motivation to study hard and improve your grades. Stay for the community, support and friendships that Grow your Grades participants benefit from every year. Start a thread and keep it updated with study habits, revision plans, general school updates and how you're getting on day to day in every aspect of your life in order to propel your revision and Grow your Grades.
Who can enter?
The point of GYG is to improve your own results and to give and receive support when you really need it, whether you’re going form a D to a C or an 8 to a 9. This means that anyone at any level and any ability can enter! So get cracking whether you’re a GCSE, IB, A level or Uni student.
What are the rules?
In order to be in the running for a prize,just start a blog and update it fairly regularly. If you do long posts, one post per week or fortnight will be plenty. If you do short posts, you can do them daily or weekly to keep us updated with your progress. Once you’ve started your blog, post in this thread that you’ve started one so we know who you are. The competition will end just after GCSE results day 2020.If you’ve already made a blog documenting your progress (in the GCSE or A level forum for example) we can move it into the GYG forum for you.
What are the prizes?
First prize this year will be…. Drumroll please…
A brand new MacBook!
We will also have two runner up prizes (TBC)
This is what we like:
Photos! Of rooms, stationery, desks, kitchen tables, book, revision snacks - anything you like! Hearing about things that go wrong as well as things that go right. The dark nights as well as the glory days. How you learn, as well as what you learn. What goes right for you? What revision techniques do you struggle with? Your life in general - how do you balance this? Your feelings and emotions about the up times, the downtimes and the in-betweeny times.Timetables, study plans, revision schedules and diaries. Remember - it's about the journey - not the destination.
See you there!
*cough* shameless self-plug...
Good luck everyone!
