So... last year was a big challenge for me and despite my high aspirations, I ended up only taking one of my A-Level subjects. Thankfully, I had the foresight to inform my firmed choice university (LSE) of my extenuating circumstances. I am now in a position where I have a guaranteed conditional offer to study Economics but the huge challenge of achieving AAa whilst working full-time as a consulting analyst!

I have now completed my orientation week (training) and the first week looking for a project; perhaps it's now time to start revising?

Follow me on this journey of work, studies and many, many applications to both university and apprenticeships. Let's keep each other motivated throughout what will be a challenging year for all of us.

With regards to UCAS, I plan for my applications to be to:

  1. LSE- Economics (L101): Submitted, but will receive offer of AAa
  2. UCL- Economics (L100): Submitted
  3. Oxford- Economics & Management (LN12)
  4. Not sure- suggestions?
  5. As above!

Today I'm going to start off by refreshing myself on the Theme 4 definitions (Macroeconomics) by making revision cards and then maybe doing the same on an app.

Thank you very much- I was always able to imagine myself studying there so I really hope I can make it work!

Work today shouldn't be too busy but I have a few hours to revise between work and going out with friends. I plan to continue with the revision cards then!

Tip: On one side put the word alongside a drawing which describes the definition, and then write the full definition on the other side.

It's been a while but I have been busy in the mean time. I have pretty much finished my Economics definitions cards and have completed several more FP1 papers. Most importantly, however, I now have a much better understanding of the Roots of Polynomials topic.

Once I am home later today I would like to make a spreadsheet (the consultant in me ) of each bullet point on the specifications and start a traffic light system. Perhaps teachers did this for a reason?!?!

I'm quite happy with how things are going so far
