Hi Guys,

This is my GYG thread and I am doing this to a) share how I'm revising b) motivate myself c) have a positive outlet for taking breaks from work.

I'm a Year 11 student sitting my iGCSEs in May/June 2020.

So, I will start with a little bit of context:

The subjects I do, the grades I want and expectations :
- English Literature : [AQA GCSE] and I want a 9 but my "target grade" is an 8
- Further Pure Mathematics [Edexcel iGCSE] : I want a 9 and am predicted a 9
- Biology [Edexcel iGCSE] : I want a 9 and am predicted a 8
- Physics [Edexcel iGCSE] : I want a 9 and am predicted a 9
- Chemistry [Edexcel iGCSE] : I want a 9 and am predicted a 9
- Computer Science [CIE iGCSE] : I want a 9 and am predicted a 8
- History [CIE iGCSE] : I want a 9 and am predicted a 9
- French [Edexcel iGCSE] : I want a 9 and am predicted a 9

The subject that I struggle with the most is probably french. I already have two 9s in Math and English Language.

My mocks are in 5 weeks and I know that's a long time but I'm aiming for the best grades I can possibly get.

I will be updating this thread every day/every two days depending on when I'm free. Please let me know if you want to be tagged.

Ps. I do hope this thread/post does well!

You only posted it four hours ago, so it might take time for people to see it. Just keep putting updates up

16 October 2019

Work I did Today:

  • Biology : I did Ecology Topic Papers from SaveMyExams. I did 3 topic papers.
  • Physics : I finished reviewing/revising Chapter 12 and Chapter 13 from Unit 3 : Waves. I also did one Topic Paper from SaveMyExams
  • Computer Science : I started solving a case study from May/June 2019 Version 1. I finished Task 1 but I'm stuck on Task 2 and so will be asking my teacher about that later
  • History : I finished reviewing Early Russia up yo the March 1917 revolution and did two sets of exam questions

What I didn't achieve and want to improve

  • I wasted a lot of time and was particularly inefficient
  • I went over the time limits/slots I gave and so didn't cover as much ground as I wanted.
  • Over the coming weekend, I want to strive to work harder not just smarter
  • Since we have Chemistry review lessons, I want to go over a good part of Unit 2 then
  • I also have to make a solid plan/study time table for the weekend



Thanks for reading and Good Luck with your own revision!
