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).

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:

Because it had so many problems...

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

Enjoy year 10, it’s a nice year - you will have to learn all the content you are taught but it’s not as serious as Year 11. Make sure you get a good group of friends who aren’t going to fall out every 2 weeks and you will be fine If you need any particular advice feel free to ask.

So I did all of maths in year 12 and then all of Further Maths in year 13

I found maths good, I found bits such as parts of integration, but I am really excited for next year

And yes I’ll tag you

Update 2: 3 days till I go back

So I have just received my timetable and some more information about going back so I thought I would do a little update
Usually, at my college, your timetable wont change between Y12 and 13 because of how the timetabling works, but I have been moved Maths/Further Maths classes which means mine has - there are positives and negatives to this. First of all the positive is that my timetable is now much nicer - I get to start late on Monday and finish earlier on a Friday. On the other hand, the negative is that my old maths/further maths class has been split up - I loved that class, they were one of the main reasons I stayed at college and managed to get through the first year The new class I am in - I know no one, and everyone in that class has had the last year to be able to get to know each other, I am trying to go in with a positive mindset - I'll let you know how it goes!

Timetable:
Spoiler:
Show
Further Maths (Pure) is blue
Further Maths (Applied) is purple
Physics is red
Geography is green
Yellow is break/lunch
Monday-Thursday we have 70 min long lessons, 20 min break and 1 hour lunch
Friday we have 60 min long lessons, 20 min break and 50 min lunch

Secondly, we have been updated about the split (one week on, one week off) timetable as part of out local council areas have come out of lockdown - they are currently planning to do the split timetable for the first 2 weeks, just to get people back in and used to the new changes and also in hope that the areas that are still in local lockdown, come out.

My revision over the past few days has been good, I plan to continue that this week. I have also managed to meet up with some friends over the weekend, since my area is out of the local lockdown (eventually!).

I'll update this probably again on Friday with how my first day back went (Thursday).

Pun/Joke time :woo:
What do sheep like to do in the summer?

Have a baa-baa-que :lol:

Hope you all have a great week - best of luck to anyone starting school! :rave:

Unfortunately, I am the only one in my new class from my old class - there was 1 other person but they have since dropped further maths but I guess it will give me a chance to meet new people
