Leah's Year 13 mess - GYG blog

Watch
Announcements
#1

Welcome!
Hey everyone! I'm a little late to the GYG party but have been completely procrastinating over the past week and not doing any coursework or revision at work, but instead obsessing over everyone else's blogs and religiously checking Track every 5 minutes, so thought I'd create my own blog to keep me motivated and actually do some work! I've been a member of TSR for years but have recently started using it all the time as an excuse to not work, so the new aim is to use it to actually help me work like it's meant to.

What subjects do I study?
I'm a Year 13 student studying A-Level Economics, Maths & Computer Science. I'm also currently undertaking an EPQ to do with the subject I want to do at university.

Economics (AQA)
