Update #1 - One week until I go back to school (probably)!

So it's probably fair to say I am not as prepared for Y13 as I could be - I am not very confident on half of the Y12 content and my personal statement is nearly non existent. So I am going to spend my last week of summer trying to get as prepared as possible.

Today has started off good, I have finished all the compulsory Physics Summer work, which included a test that I got 92% on , but I am still a long way behind a have some Past Paper Questions to do for all my subjects alongside revision. So the next week ahead I am going to try and do 4 hours on each subject to help get me 'back on top'.

I am still unsure about when I am meant to be going into college (it's a very long story so if you are interested it's in the spoiler below), but currently I am due to start next Thursday (10th).
Spoiler:

Sooooo the big complication with going back to college is that, last week when my headteacher sent an email out we were in a local lockdown, so the college decided they were going to spit the college in half by surnames and do it so half went in one week and half the next. Which is quite annoying really as most of my mates are in the other half of the year...But, as of Friday we have now come out of local lockdown (just about) so we are waiting to hear if anything is changing....now obviously it's been a bank holiday weekend which is why we haven't heard anything yet, but it is a nervous wait, hoping that I can go back full time - I'll keep you all updated.

So as a basic to do list, over the next week I am going to:
-Spend 8 hours on maths, which includes doing 3 Past papers and some integration revision
-Spend 4 hours on physics, mainly the past paper questions which we have been asked to do, but also some general revision if I get chance
-Spend 4 hours on geography, learning the key case studies from Y12;
-Start writing the first draft of my personal statement:poke:

PUN/JOKE TIME :woo:

If you have ever seen my blog you will know I love bad jokes/pun, so I am going to try and include one at the end of every update - just to try and spread a bit of happiness - they may be topical or they may be totally random

Why did the maths book look so sad when school started again?
Spoiler:
Show
Because it had so many problems...

Hope everyone has a good week and if you are heading back to school - stay safe! :hugs:

We usually start earlier (last year I started in the last week of August) - it's just to do with the local lockdown, I think which is why they've pushed the start date back :confused:

Edit: Laura I seemed to have already tagged you - I am assuming I have tagged the correct account:confused:

I just do practice questions after practice questions. If I find a topic I struggle on I will usually create some kind of revision aid - this could be a mind map of the different techniques (e.g. integration) or it could be a flash card with a step by step example. Hope this helps
