It goes without saying that my first attempt at a GYG blog in Year 11 was much like my work ethic... sub-par to say the least. Hence the title: GYG 2: The Redemption. The webpage will not be cast aside, flung to a corner by my flimsy, exhausted, gym-less arms. No, this GYG blog is going to be as great as my AS Level results - absolutely fantabulously amazing!

My shambolic work ethic at GCSE didn't stop me from getting good grades

Art - 9
Biology - 9
Business - 9
Chemistry - 9
English Lit - 9
English Lang - 9
French - 7
Media - 9
Maths - 8
Physics - 9
R.E - 9 (done 2018)

TL;DR - 9 9s, 1 8, 1 7.


but I paid out a lot of nights no sleep panic, tears, conversations with my mum about how I don't know why I left it this late and how I didn't think I could do it, *stress* and I think I went to bed at 5 am the night of my English Lit paper because I hadn't revised any poetry at all.

I don't want you (or me!) to make those mistakes because it was complete hell - so anyone needing help/ advice/ reassurance that it's not too late - I'm here for you my good people. Consider this a local meeting ground for all students, far and wide, to converse about the messes we've made (and how we're still going to get better!)

For my AS levels:

I'm aiming to get straight As - I'm doing Maths, Econ and Chem. MANIFEST UNIVERSE!!!!

Negl I don't know what the highest grade my school gives out - I think it's an A - but whatever it is - that's what I'm aiming for!!


I know I can't do that without hard work so I invite you to watch me as I post about my journey (which is sure to be similar to a ride in a tumble dryer) - warts and all. Feel free to post your goals for this year too, and come back and let me know how it went!!

REDEMPTION... COMMENCE!!!

I'm cringing because you posted this 4 weeks ago and I haven't been on since but better late than never?!

I'm loving Chemistry - I need to catch up on Econ and Maths is utterly shambolic but I'm planning to catch up over Christmas, even though we're going on holiday and Dad says I can't take work

21/21/2019 - My desk looks like a disaster zone of the most random collection of items ever, but in the centre is *dun dun DUN* my maths revision! I meant to catch up on all *shock horror* 12 chapters I've dropped behind in in pure but now it's 3 days until I go on holiday and I'm on chapter 5, thanks to one week of doing absolutely nothing. It was the worst kind of nothing too - when you're sitting in front of your work, on your phone or watching Netflix, and not fully doing either. I slept a lot too. Missed a couple of frees.
There's a lesson to be learnt, I guess - don't pack your schedule too hard. I did about 3 chapters in the first week, nothing in the second and now I've done 2 in the last 2-ish days. If you feel yourself lagging, take a break. Don't tough it out, it'll have a bigger toll later. Same applies to when you get stuck - coming back with a fresh mind does W O N D E R S.
