    My work to achievement ratio is:
    1:3.14159

    This clearly shows a tendency to work more in maths

    Seriously though, it varied a lot between subjects!

    On chemistry, I spent all of Y11 mucking around (along with the rest of the class tbh), did about 5 days of light revision from a CGP book and came out with an A. I didn't deserve that, but then again I spent more time out of class on my art than I did in class, and I came out with a B

    I was regarded as the one in my family least likely to do well, and I'm the only one out of 3 to get into uni first time. Although the other 2 did do well except for missing out on a subject they needed

    I did a fair amount of "work" in class. Well just listening really. But when at home, i really found it hard to concentrate on coursework and homeworks, and revision I found really hard to concentrate. I'd say for about every exam i did about one hour (intensive) revision, sometimes less. Therefore, I'm really happy with my "work : acheivement ratio", though know a repeat will not be sufficent enough to get through my A-levels with the grades i want, AAAA

    1:1. What I put in is what I get out. If I am a weekend player, I get weekend results. Simple.

    I used to think I was a 1:3 until I got to uni. Now I'm a 1:1. Did that make sense?

    I never think I've done enough work, but then I get pretty super good results. Which is cool. :]
