Background information

I'm apjxz (obv not my legal name), and I'm super stressed about my A-Level exams coming up in May this year. I have no work ethic (which I'm looking to change) and I achieve lower than I probably could if I put in more effort. I am looking to change how I approach work in the next 3 months, in order to achieve grades that I can actually be proud of.




A levels - Predicted grades

Maths - A*
Further Maths - B
Physics - B
English Literature and Language - A

Mock Results

Maths - A
Physics - C
Further Maths - D
English - B




I will try to update this every so often with new techniques I've found that have helped me study, how I'm getting on, and also my stress level on a scale of 1-10.

Ok, quick update on what I am doing.

I am not one who works well with schedules. Throughout my education, when studying, I can never stick to a schedule. I get sidetracked, or I go over the time limit so it ends up being completely uncoordinated and rubbish. What I have been doing since December, is doing something different, so instead of allocating time slots, labelled MATHS or PHYSICS, I've instead started to issues tasks per day, that I have to get done. I find meeting deadlines easier than following a schedule, so it works for me very well as there is more flexibility yet the workload is the same.

This is what I am using at the minute for maths and further maths. I worked out how many days I had until each exam, divided it by however many past papers there were left, and then spaced it out accordingly. I find this way of working much easier (for maths and further maths), but im still trying to find something that works for physics and english.

Have a great week and stay safe in these scary times.
