episode one: the rollercoaster

Image
my mood for the last three weeks

finAlly i get round to writing my first post this year. i think ive broken the mez record now first it was six days late and now it’s a whole MONTH ahahahah. well i have been a busy busy bee as you’ll find out but ultimately it’s been a whole rollercoaster (wooaAah) but yeah im all good happy and healthy so that’s what’s important!

alrighty where do i even begin...i’ll start with subject breakdowns to find some sorta normality. and yes im still taking four subjects mez is a masochist confirmed!


biology:

so over lockdown we had to cover some y13 content of which i did one half of so that’s actually quite good for me haha. we were supposed to have done all the neurones and hormones stuff but we recapped that in the first lesson. let’s hope they don’t spring some surprise test lol action potentials are not my friend...

apart from that we started respiration oh lord it’s ALOT. y’all think the jump from 11 to 12 is bad just wait bwahahahahh. but tbh krebs cycle and co is pretty fun once you get the hang of it. can’t wait to have to learn all the intermediates when i go to uni (if i even get in lmao) ooh we also did the brain which was nice since we already sorta touched on it in psychology last year but bio is way more in depth so it’s more interesting. we also did muscles and sliding filament stuff and we did a chicken wing dissection but this time i didn’t tear all the tendons and ligaments like i did in y8 lool but it’s soooo cool to see it move when you press the bicep. mm psychopath mez anyone?

chemistry:

hmm we didn’t cover tooo much y13 in lockdown just benzene stuff in organic (but do i even know what nucleophilic subsitution?addition? eh? is) and for inorganic we did kc & kp constants, did some lovely transition metals stuff,,,uhh someone tell me what on earth a ligand is. so in lessons apparently we've been doing redox reactions which definetely has not gone in at all haha but we did do some fun titration stuff.

my teacher said not to break anything and because we used permanganate its this proper purple stuff which stains real bad so of course my class dropped it everywhere hehe...uh oh. we also did some kinda practical with 2,4DNP or something like that. no clue what was going on but hey pretty colours.

Attachment 958696 Attachment 958698

and so apparently we've also done phenols, ketones, the non-ketones what are they oh aldehydes and carboxylic acids.....girl i dont remember doing that what- all i recall is my teacher saying ok we have 15mins left get out textbooks and pretend to do questions bwahaha he knows us too well

maths:

oh lordy lord here we go. um so maths decided to kill us right before we even stepped foot into y13 as we had two mocks of all the AS content. and the annoying thing is they should've split it into pure and then stats & mechanics but no they did pure and stats and pure and mech which is so WRONG but they hate us. luckily if we did terrible they wouldn't move down our grades and only move them up if we did better than what we're predicted.........so uh my A* in maths drifts further into space. we're not even going to talk about my abysmal scores so let's just move on.

Image

um so maths thinks we've done half the y2 pure textbook bahahahahhha FUNNY me trying to do y2 trig when i dont know what the heck a radian is ooh we love a good challenge. its getting better though i kinda get the identities its just about practice. with my other teacher he's new but a whole legend we're doing mechanics w him and ugh it just clicks straight away which is sooooo good but i still hate friction and inclines no just lie down tf dont add trig into mechanics. moments are quite fun though.

in tuition because my mathematical capabilities are a shambles we did differentiation and wHAT why is there more than one type wthhhhhhhhh no no no what is product quotient implicit huhhhhhhhh and more trig noOOO leave me alone - this isn't even the hard stuff i hear integration by parts will well and truly send me six feet under....

psychology:

i don't know why i ever put the idea of me dropping psychology into my head bc now it just feels like a drag. and i haven't done work since march- oops and yet im predicted an A* dont tell my teacher hehe. so uh the night before i remembered we had a whole research project to do and lets just say one of the limitations of my investigation is to make sure to actually do it next time instead of making up statistics-

we finished off research methods THANK goodness i hate it so much even though its disgustingly in every single paper uGHHH why why why i do not CARE what kind of experiment it is or why psychology is a science (it's not btw grr c*mbr*dge grr grr more on this later)

but yea we were told we had a whole test on it like 5 days in advance uhhh sorry luv i haven't even done the first half we were supposed to do over summer. luckily we managed to cram 6 months of work into one hour mmm statistical tests are just SO much fun but yeah we'll see how that turns out next week.

Attachment 958704
revising on the train how studious!

ucas:

right now this is where all the juicy stuff comes ahH grab a drink and a snack you're in for a ride. and of course im going to overdramatise because im not putting that 9 in drama to waste-

uhh how do i even split this lol

personal statement:

so miraculously this came about in about a four days of grafting. amazing when i actually put my mind to things instead of procastinating,,,,mez unlock your full powers challenge!! so a mishmash of youtubers, podcasts, ig accounts and ebooks later i created some kinda first draft. then it got smushed to pieces by my form tutor who's an english teacher which now looking back is probably the best thing but at the time it kinda hurted bc it was like wahhh im so shite wahhh.

Attachment 958706
my butchered ps rip (covered for plagiarism tings)

yup then i had my bio teacher look over it and some friends in the year above. then finally my dad read it and grilled me line by line and so it finally came out to what i wanted lol interviews come at me i've been through it all! so yeah just final touch ups before i send it all off tomorrow and get references etc

predicted grades:

ahaha..uh okay.

so beginning of term my current grades are A* in psych and As in everything else. which is completely fine don't get me wrong but for med? yeah not enough for mez. so the begging commences.

meeting 1) i talk to my bio and chem teachers first to see where my grades being put up stood. bio was pretty fine with it and she was really nice and wanted me to apply to cambridge as 5 of her girls last year got into cam for med. chem on the other hand was saying some bs like oh you don't need an A* for med----sir what? so then i talked to my head of chem and he was chill like yea its fine i've been at As all year its calm. but alas they cannot change anything unless you go through higher-ups so onto the next meeting

meeting 2) i talk to my head of year (HoY) and she starts saying well you can apply this year with what you have or you gonna have to reapply next year or take a gap year- woah woah woah! whatttt are you saying! so she could see i was shocked and said well what are your grades now. so i told her and she goes ohhhHHHHhh why didn't you say an A to A* is nothing I thought you were on Ds. fr my soul nearly returned to God that day..retake a year? God forbid...

meeting 3) so after psych (yep HoY is also my new psych teacher) I go up to her to confirm if my bio and chem are being changed and she goes yeah but only for chem not bio....so my heart sinks again bc wth huh make it make sense. my bio is better than my chem atm lolllllll whaaat is going onN.

meeting 4) so i get sick of my HoY and go speak to my ucas advisor but unfortunately she's busy so as i leave i run into my HoY how awkward and she's like what's wrong so i go on a whole spiel of how cambridge don't accept psych as a science boohoo so i need an A* in chem AND bio otherwise i can't apply. so she goes its unlikely for them to change two grades (where is the logic sis) so what about oxford? OXFORD? huhuhuhuhhhhhh OXFORD?? you telling me two days before our internal school deadline to switch up my whole uni choice.....

so i went home and cried. a lot. a whole lot.

Image
it hurt bro like you wouldn't believe.

my mum emailed in and we tried to weigh up the options. i took a look at oxford but i was still determined for cam so i made a list of all the reasons why i should apply to cam and not oxford and emailed my ucas supervisor to see her after school.

meeting 4) so finally i get to talk to my ucas advisor who is actually super super sweet and we talked for a good hour and a half. and then..oxford didn't seem so bad uno. maybe i am easily manipulated- but so what? i was making it out like they weren't gonna let me apply for med at all, like mez stfu you crying about whether you get to go to cam or oxford be quiet some people can't even go to uni with their current grades- (yes i know i shouldn't downplay my own struggles but this is the only coping mechanism i have lol and it really isn't the end of the world)

so my ucas advisor gave me a week extension to properly 'explore' oxford. and it must have been a sign or something because they were doing their september open days that weekend. and oh i just fell in love. there are a lot of reasons i decided to go with oxford but to sum it up:

Spoiler:
Show
1) my grades (A*A*AA, stars in chem and psych). they exceed the oxford offer of A*AA but don't meet cambridge minimum reqs.

2) oxford is actually better for medicine believe it or not! i know you're not supposed to go off league tables but 2020 says ox is first for med and cam is 4th....

3) my gcse profile. it did take some convincing that my 6 in art wouldn't really dampen the fact i have 11A*s which oxford take more into account in their initial weighting.

4) harry potter was filmed in oxford. need i say more?

5) intercalation is slightly different at oxford (intercalation = basically taking a year out of med to do a research project etc on another subject) but i prefer it to cambridge's approach. plus the covid-19 vaccine research is all happening at oxford which is exciting stuff. not that absolutely nothing is happening in cam but its been less publicised to me

@oxfordmum can i get your thoughts on this?


somehow i managed to shortlist down my college choices to a top 6, but ultimately my heart was drawn to keble- it looks like a whole gingerbread house and it will look absolutely magical in the snow (shoo global warming shoo) plus its opposite the med departments so thats a bonus.

oxford interview and pool slightly different to cam but i won't bore you with the details. in the end, i am properly invested into oxford now..cambridge who?

ah but our story does not end here friends.

Image

my form tutor saw me being upset and so i told her everything and she said thats rubbish why can't they move up two, plus my bio teacher was a bit pissed too so they both emailed to rally for my grade to be boosted. and then i get an email to go speak to my HoY

meeting...5?) so i go up to see HoY and she goes basically we've had loads of emails in and we're happy to move your bio grade so that you can apply to cambridge------HUHH what.........wait a damn minute. you mean to tell me i spent all this energy detaching myself and crying till i fell asleep for you to just- *agonising screams* so then i say how i've been considering oxford a lot more now and she goes oh yeah i thought that would be better for you, guess that means we don't need the change after all- so luckily it was registration time and she couldn't see my disgusted face

hmm is this me being very selfish and ignorant but can I still have the A* even though im not applying to cam but i still very much deserve it?

meeting 6) final one lads well done if you're still reading. so i go back to the lovely ucas advisor and tell her my decision and ask if my grade in bio can be put up even though im not blah blah blah annnnnnd she said yes! if all my teachers support it then why the hell not. we love an A*A*A*A prediction hehe. i also found out my epq is predicted an A - yes I would've liked an A* but i've done enough begging for a lifetime plus its not like they lower offers for high epqs for med. plus its only a prediction so we'll see what the real people think. oh and our moderator is my HoY how terrific. oh dear this makes it sound like my HoY is horrible, she is actually lovely its just the system she has to run under is atrocious

final ucas grades:

Spoiler:
Show
  • biology: A*
  • chemistry: A*
  • psychology: A*
  • maths: A
  • epq: 'A'


so now my totally confirmed ucas choices are:

Spoiler:
Show
  • oxford [keble college] - medicine a100
  • imperial college london - medicine a100
  • kings college london - medicine a100
  • barts and the london - medicine a100
  • st george's university london - biomedical science



hopefully i'll be joining laurawatt and clouddbubbles (if i remember correctly where you're applying to) and anyone else applying to oxford!

now i just gotta get on with absolutely finessing my bmat haha the grind never stops....

extras:

there's literally nothing to put in here lol i've been so busy w ucas stuff. we had a charity meeting of how we're going to try doing things virtually and biochemsoc we have an ex student who wants to give a talk so i need to sort that out. plus we need to give the y12s a sort of freshers fair type thing to intro them to sixth form properly but who knows how that is going to happen. mm what else oh school is running mock interview in october........please let me breATHE of course i need to do one but ugh just one more thing to add to the plate. i still need to catch up on lockdown work, actually digest y13 content and bmat prep....mm if my head doesn't explode i think i deserve a sticker.

no way i actually finished this post bawahahahah ! also when things get real stressful i tend to turn to baking so here's some stuff i made! it kinda reminds me of chemistry pags when i measure stuff out so i pretend im in my own lab making cool things haha oh and also some yummy things i had courtesy of bojo over summer haha don't blame me for covid hun




ooh also i watched enola holmes and personally i think it deserves to be a series i was sad when it was just a movie. who cares about stranger things we want enola holmes season 12345!! also im never going to be a simp for a white man unless its tom felton but if i was my goodness me louis partridge....nah it makes me feel like a nonce even though we're the same age but yeah would defo recommend!

hmm do i hear a playlist.mez incoming...

✧・゚: *✧・゚:* playlist.mez✧・゚: *✧・゚:*



also new year means new taglist! a few of you have already mentioned you wanna be tagged (you guys are too cute :cube:) but please drop a message below in case i stupidly miss you out! i'll put last years list on this post but from then on i'll only tag people who actually want to be here so do let me know!

thank you guys once again for all the continued support, i'll be having a look at some of the gygs as i've sorta got some time now! feel free to tag me in yours if you wanna :thumbsup:

✧・゚: *✧・゚:* people who make mez's life less of a mess✧・゚: *✧・゚:*

Spoiler:
Show














































































and on an ending note, i came across this video of bts speaking at the UN conference and it really resonated with me. here's a link and i'll just quote some of the bits i particularly like

Our tomorrow may be dark, painful, difficult. We might stumble or fall down.
Stars are brightest when the night is darkest. If the stars are hidden, we'll let moonlight guide us. If the moon is dark, let our faces be the light that helps us find the way.

We're huddled together tired, but let's dream again.
It might feel like it's always night and that we'll always be alone, but the night is always darkest before the first light of dawn.
Life goes on. Let's live on.


kim namjoon for president or-

i hope you guys are enjoying being back at "school" or uni etc and that its not been too hard on you. my pms are always open for a chat about absolutely anything! keep your chins up, masks on, hands washed and get ready to take on this next year. a month has already whooshed past and its making me sad that i only have a couple more left until my time at secondary school is finito so please do cherish your friends and the memories.

Image

i haven't laughed like i have in the last three weeks for over six months. surround yourself with a strong circle of people who make you want to better yourself.

stay happy and healthy everyone!

mez :heart:

Image

i nearly screamed when i saw the tag :woo:

congrats in the amazing predicted grades mashaAllah! switching to oxford was a plot twist i did not expect lmao, oxford is an awesome place tbf :yep: currently also aiming for cam but if i fall in love with oxford then we’ll roll with it :ahee:

good luck with your application mez, truly hoping you get in! xx

btw them noodles look amazing omds, and the baking :heart:

keep me tagged! radians aren't bad tbh

(Original post by Sinnoh)
Yeah for Oxford at least it's not like years ago when all that mattered was the proportion of A*s

Once you switch to radians that's it. You're truly enlightened. You can never go back to that Babylonian filth that is degrees. You've ascended to a higher plane of mathematics.

Differentiation isn't so bad once you're used to applying the rules, integration is a lot more painful though. It's hard to find a function you can't differentiate. Hell you can differentiate xx using nothing but A-level techniques (in fact it was in the 2019 exam paper).
Basically the two hardest topics in A-level pure maths are trigonometry and integration so make sure you do all the questions that exist and you'll be good to go :ahee:
i still prefer degrees in most cases

Wow! When you said rollercoaster you really did mean it :eek: I have stayed away from all of Oxbridge so can’t really give any useful advice :facepalm: but it sounds like you have made the correct choice for you :yep: and glad to hear your predictions FINALLY got sorted. Best of luck for your interviews!

Also looks like you have been busy eating/baking - in looks very nice

Hope the next month isn’t too hectic for you :hugs:
hahaaa yup! and thank you so much i'm just holding out til bmat is over then i can try and sorta enjoy november

aha i hope so, i think it's still up in their application stats but meh i have plenty more important things to worry over
radians??? nahh i always end up converting back into degrees, do some mathsy stuff, and if i need to then convert back into radians. alas i'll never become the part of the elite :cry2:

everyone says integration is horrible im scared trig is hard enough but im getting to grips w the identities, just a lil more practising i guess!

yes we need to meet up. It's between downing and christ's. I'm leaning towards downing because i'm not a morning person and the medical sciences faculty is like a 2 min walk from the college hehehe
defo! and oooh downing is gorgeous, back when i was applying i secretly hoped i would get pooled there lol and yep its pretty convenient for med students aha

i) the rollercoaster


༓☾* unnecessary character development *☽༓・*

Spoiler:

  • i'm a sucker for food. I will eat anything edible. as long as it's halal eheee but i seriously need to cut down im trying to keep to a calorie deficit but binging just keeps coming back
  • major kpop junkie, please slide into my dms if you can relate
  • bangladeshi fam where you at?
  • i pretty much spend my life procrastinating on the internet
  • i'm the eldest of 3, and I've got 2 younger sisters
  • i'm basically blind so I wear glasses; i have tried contacts but they dry my eyes out so im probably gonna get laser surgery when im old enough
  • my birthday's 27th nov so I'm 17 and counting...ew so old
  • i have contracted a serious obsession with netflix over summer which is not doing me any favours although i am slowly trying to get back into reading books!


and yes im not creative with names but i kinda had a running theme the last couple of years! now not getting too sentimental but this is unfortunately the final season (until i scramble back here when i *fingers crossed* get into uni lol) mez the medic does have a nice ring to it....

previous shambles and shenanigans:
season two (y12)
season one (y11)
my ugly y10 gyg

(and if you find my year nine one please delete it from existence i don't know what i was on...)

so updates should've been weekly but i've already failed lool just whenever i can - it'll be a mystery how exciting

errrrm so i think that's all from me so far! feel free to promote your own gygs or ask me for anything (i'll try my best to reply with something useful)

all the best with everyone's journey's this year, its gonna be tough but i know you lot will get through (we survived six months of lockdown, we're pretty much indestructible at this point)

so chins up, masks on, hands sanitised and here we go! :kungfu:

we going regular updates or...? chile let me not speak too soon.....

Image
me and you laughing as we know that'll never happen

episode two: the week i almost killed my best friend

more on that later aha

biology:

imma have to split these into teachers bc i don't have the brain capacity to remember what we do in lessons anymore

b1) we have done some fun anaerobic respiration practicals with a j tube n counting bubbles...woo exciting. also tell me why we have a whole bio trip on the 21st which was supposed to last 3 days but covid said NO so now we're cramming it into a 9am-7pm day?!?!?!? hhuuuuhhhh no imma cry a whole day of doing pags and not even the fun ones the boring plant practicals where you throw quadrats around and make up your data- i mean carefully analyse the different types of grass,,,,bwahahah anyway how fun it bETTER not rain or suddenly im self isolating for two weeks...

b2) we finished off sliding filament muscles which is actually quite fun but i defo need to go over it as there's sooo many intricate lil details now. we're moving onto excretion so liver and kidney stuff and then we're pretty much done for animal homeostasis, gonna do plant hormones etc which shouldn't take to long and then we're onto the final module gfhkahlahdlkajdhkfahsdlfah


chemistry:

c1) uhhh....redox equations? i pretend i understand but really i just about know oxidation numbers and then my knowledge is pretty limited. we did a fun titration though sodium thiosulfate. and we get to do a ligand reaction thing, still no clue what they are but the other classes have pictures of pretty colours in test tubes so oooh aesthetics! also omfg pags are a burden why do we need research skills sorry- already been there done that w epq now you want me to do a mini chemistry epq too hahhahaha no thanks. i gotta write my own methods etc etc on how to get iron from iron tablets or something. i wish we still did the synthesis of aspirin bc that sounds fun but apparently it doesn't work to well....

c2) i really couldn't tell you what we're doing in organic......

let's just pray i don't have a test soon or im so bloody screwed. i don't even get nucleophilic/electro?/ substitution addition idek at this point i just draw curly arrows, chuck in some electron pairs and hope for the best.


maths:

so tell me why i find out you don't need maths for oxford med..........hmm looking very tempting to drop, but lessons are fun but its HARD

m1) uh we finished trig wth.....why do i know nothing. luckily we went back to AS stats to finish off the last chapter on hypothesis testing n binomial distributions. luckily psychology knowledge actually came in handy for once!! bc we did stats tests in psych i sorta knew all the key terms already, just in maths we actually need to know how to work out the values but in psych we need to know how to apply them to different contexts. also doing distributions on calculators is so much fun hehe. i still need to work out how to do trig graphs though i can never get the right axis scaling


m2) finished off moments in mechanics and started parametrics which are quite fun! its like trig identity solving which i would find easier if ya know i actually learnt the trig identities and did the bloody work over lockdown but considering i didn't know what the hell a radian was at the beginning of term i think im doing pretty well



psychology:

got the research methods test back, another A* solidified which is good but now my superiority complex is back. we're onto issues and debates which is a fun lil chapter only 7 topics which we could've smashed in two weeks with my old teacher....but oh i feel like this is my fault bc i told my new teacher that it would be nice to have more interactive lessons instead of just copying from powerpoints etc. so why do we have entire lessons full of discussion now- nO she's doing the most its so sweet but no baby no i just want half an hour to do my notes i don't mind some discussion but not every single point needs to be debated.

she even made us do an essay plan via paper chains

Image
i just...hopefully she feels the vibes from the rest of the class and realises we just want this over with aha


ucas:

nothing much to add here, my reference writer is my form tutor so that's nice she knows me quite well as she taught me gcse english and i sent her a massive doc of everything i couldn't fit into my personal statement so she can have fun cutting that down lool. i still wanna double check my epq grade as they've been moderated so i wanna see if its still an A or an A*. but things are just weird now i cant just walk into an office bc restrictions n need to make appointments ugh. covid better be gone soon please wear masks and wash ya hands you detty pigs

i think they'll start sending off applications for early entry next week as my school likes to do them a lil early before the deadline bc apparently ucas gets realllll busy closer to the 15th so we can submit w plenty of time. i've heard of people already submitting there's and getting confimation emails from unis eeee scary. also i do need to start bmat prep ASAP its exactly a month tomorrow and i keep putting it off oh my lord. oh i booked a mock interview for like the 25th so need to prep for that too.



extras:

so we're back to running biochem soc and charity stuff virtually off teams which is exciting! got loads of keen people so thats always great. we also got the green light for running a virtual eco conference so i gotta sort out all the details for that now hehe

oh and back to the title of this episode before i forget lmao. so one of my best friends turned 18 this week. well everyone turns 18 in y13 so we have our common room permanently decorated w birthday stuff as people cant properly celebrate w friends at home. so i baked some brownies grr i should've taken pictures but they were gorgeous i had oreos and peanut butter and chocolate chunks pure chefs kiss. so everyone was enjoying and then my other best friend goes wow mez these are so good what's in them? and i say peanut butter and her face DROPs and she runs to the bathroom. oh i felt so so bad how can i not know someone is allergic fffffff. well karma strikes and i lost my oyster card (train ticket for you non-london lot) so that's l o v e l y.

Image
this has literally been me most days i am sO sleepy yet i cannot because i just have too much to do!!11!!!!!1111!11

anyway hopefully you guys are all settling back into routines. ive had a couple friends in the year above move out to uni which is super exciting and its weird thinking its gonna (hopefully) be me next year!

hmm lots on my plate but i just need to hope all the waffle about how good at time management i am in my personal statement to come true irl ahahaha...

Image
hope they don't realise by time management i mean excessive procrastination mixed with a fear of failure

blackpink - lovesick girls [was quietly impressed with this comeback, again i know they're capable of 100000000 times better but it was a nice change from their continual pop-py tracks]

blackpink - pretty savage [now ThiS was what we needed, i haven't had a chance to listen to the rest of the album but i hope they're all like this song Wow]



also new year means new taglist! a few of you have already mentioned you wanna be tagged (you guys are too cute :cube:) but please drop a message below in case i stupidly miss you out! i'll only tag people who actually want to be here so do let me know!
