Decided at midnight last night to make this. Only... what? 6 months late? What’s half a year anyway. :holmes: By the way, if none of the images work, idk what to do lol. I tried and I'll sort them out later.

Image


Who am I?
Spoiler:
Show

Just some black chick who likes anime way too much

My name is Tomi.
I’m 17
My bday is 2nd Feb
I’m in Year 12
I currently go to a state school in London which I have been in since y7
I want to do Medicine at Oxford :0
I love drawing, baking and playing video games.
I love anime. Have I said that already?

I went through a really bad depression spike at the beginning of the academic year that completely depleted any ounce of motivation I had at the time. It certainly made my grades dip for the worst oof. So I'm on a mission to try really hard for the rest of the year.


Image

Why is this GYG a thing?
Spoiler:
Show

Wanna get more serious in prepping for applying to medicine as a whole. I know getting in is really hard regardless of whether or not one’s applying to Oxbridge.
I feel like I’m really behind in terms of prep, so this is just gonna be a planner of sorts to keep me on schedule.
I tried making one before and legit didn’t even get a single post in lmao. It’ll be different this time.

GCSEs/A-Levels
Spoiler:
Show

I got 9 9s last year. This was just your standard array of maths, English and triple science as well as history, rs and French. I also got an A in FSMQ.
My A-Levels are:
Biology
Chemistry
History
Maths
EPQ (hopefully)
No predicted grades as I’m in y12




Image


Where am I planning on applying?
Spoiler:
Show

Well... Oxford lol. It’s gonna be so awkward when I come back to this GYG and I didn’t get in lol. It’s worth a shot at least.
My potential choices atm are:
Oxford - :teeth:
Bristol
Nottingham
Bath
Cardiff


I don’t really know that much about any unis apart from Oxford tbh. One thing I definitely need to do this year is to attend open days (tho they’ll probs all be virtual). I really don’t want to apply to any London Unis since I live in London.



Image

I hope I can actually commit to this one. I really want to try my hardest these next two years. Hopefully, my laziness doesn't get the better of me.

Goals for the year

Improve my grades. My exams in January left me with A*A*BC I’m not sure why I struggle so much with biology, so I’ll try and focus on that. I’m aiming for an A by the end of the year. Finger crossed!

Improve my UCAT abilities. I recently got allocated extra time in exams, so maybe that’s why I’m so terrible? Lol. Either way, a huge focus of mine will be answering questions more efficiently.

Regularly practise BMAT. Haven’t tried any real questions yet but apparently it’s harder than UCAT so :emo:

Read. Read. READ. It took me around 2 days to finish Do No Harm after putting it off for months. I didn’t think I was the biggest fan of reading so I’m quite surprised :gah:
I have a list of books I want to complete so that I know I definitely have a good grasp of what practising medicine entails.

Sleep. Pretty self-explanatory. One of the things I procrastinate the worst on though.

Plan for GYG

Going to split day into three sections:


Morning
For everything I did/plan on doing before my 3rd period (at around 12)

Afternoon
For everything I did/plan on doing before school ends

Evening
For everything I did/plan on doing after school

Plans for today (03/03/2021)


• Finish When Breath Becomes Air
• Do write-up on Do No Harm
• Do Maths HW on two-tailed hypotheses tests
• Survive History (seems unlikely) :boring:
• Make Biology flashcards
• Find medical articles to read

This is quite a lot so I expect it to spill onto tomorrow.

Morning
I didn’t do much. I had Biology in which I desperately tried to catch up with the lesson I missed on Monday (definitely not because I chose to sleep through it or anything... :ninja:). I should have been more productive but procrastination said “no” :’)

Afternoon
I had Chemistry, Maths and History. Luckily, my chem lesson happened to be an article-based on where we had to find a chemistry article to write a review about. I took the time to search up some written on medical topics and found a few interesting ones which I’m excited to read. They aren’t very complicated and seem more Year 7-9 level tbh, so I’ll probably have to do some more digging. :hmmmm:

Evening
I spent my time doing so much... not. I did absolutely nothing apart from Maths hw. I spent more time researching the BMAT than actually doing any practice lol.

* * *


So all in all, I found articles and did my homework. I didn’t make any flashcards nor finish the book :argh: but I have a lot of school work which I need to prioritise at the moment.

I finish school a little later tomorrow, and I also have a medical thingy to attend for an hour. Looks like I’ll have a lot on my plate. It’d be easier if I didn’t keep procrastinating tho.

Plans for today (03/03/2021)

• Make Biology flashcards
• Make History flashcards
• Research Four Pillars of Medicine
• Do write-up on Do No Harm
• Do Maths HW on differentiation

I procrastinated too much yesterday, so I figured I’d give myself a less demanding plan for today. :burnout:

:hello:To tag different users use the @ symbol and then type their username. Make sure it goes blue once you've selected the username
e.g. ItsTomii

If you leave a username between each name and type @ you can tag multiple users :yes:

Plans for today (08/03/2021)


• Get through my last lesson of online learning :boring:
• Start my History hw
• Continue reading This Is Going To Hurt
• Think about how I’m never going to actually complete my write-up on Do No Harm :emo:

I was consistent for 2 days before taking a break LOL. Nevermind that. School’s starting again so maybe it’ll give me the motivation to power through this. :beard:
