WELCOME TO TR:FRTT, pronounced TRRR-FRRRTT - I am adamant about this.

This is my THIRD GYG blog and (hopefully) the first one I don't abandon halfway/two weeks:angelblush:) in!

What I WILL DO!! (and how I decided I wanted to do it) :captain:
Spoiler:

Get into PPE at Oxford!!! (Clearly I believe in manifesting your dreams!) After literally months of basically-not-looking-for-courses-because-they-all-look-sucky, deciding on chemistry, then biomedical sciences, and then deciding I'd rather not become a researcher because I want to be massively sopping rich ** THOUGH UNI WILL NOT NECESSARILY AID THIS** and because it didn't appeal to me as much as it did initially, I stumbled upon PPE on a late night YouTube procrastination binge and FELL. IN. LOVE. And then, with doing it at Oxford. Yes, my hopes are high, but I WILL NOT FALL I WILL NOT!!!!! !

My A-Levels

Economics, Chemistry and Maths (AQA,AQA and Edexcel, respectively).

My Predicted Grades

I'm not sure! We didn't get to have Year 12 mocks because of miss rona so it's in the air. I also didn't work too hard in Y12 cause I was counting on end of years (oops!) but my GCSEs were banging and I'm hoping a bit of teacher convincing will help. We're having unofficial "tracking" exams soon too so I'm pretty much sure those will have a big impact. Better get revising!

Plans :cheers:

Still far off, distant, vague clouds of possibility. I've been looking to hit the October deadline for Oxbridge so I've been smashing out my PS incredibly late, but as for other unis, I'm not sure.
Currently looking at:
Oxford - PPE
LSE - PPE or potentially PE
KCL/UCL

Where I'm At Right Now - so you don't need to click through if you just want mini-updates :yay:

September 19th 2020 - Looks like I'm about to finish paragraph one of my FIRST DRAFT of my personal statement. You can read about that here (when I put it up) (x)

TO BE ADDED


I'm literally SO PSYCHED for this year because a) it's the last year of proper school...I'm feeling emotions! and b) because I actually want to do SO much this year, despite my trademark laidback bullsh*t.
I'm so so so excited to grow and document my journey on this blog this year and read back and be like *warm happy feelings* - I hope you guys enjoy reading my inevitable monologues do too.

Feel free to ask for a tag if you want updates directly!
Love love love,
Ems :loveduck:
