The adventures of a catastrophic yr13 studentWatch
Hi everyoneee my name´s Cabava and I´m a private candidate in year 13. I don´t have any teachers, just tutors that mark my exams, so I honestly don´t really know what I´m doing.
My current predicted grades are:
I really want to get at least an AAB, but tbh my motivation has been recently slacking especially since my mind is a complete mess
Here I will be blogging my catastrophic journey to growing my grades. I hope you stick along for the ride!
My current goals:
- Actually consistently study every day without getting distracted
- Attempt past papers
- Make my own notes
- Take care of my mental health
- Make time for the gym
- Figure out what I want to do next year
I haven't seen a new one in a while
A bit of context: During the whole month of September I´ve been having to complete all my yr12 exams in order to get a predicted grade
Today, I completed and handed in my second psychology exam. It hasn´t been marked yet and I´m honestly extremely nervous to know how it´s gone. It was pretty easy overall but the last few questions confused me because they were about a completely different topic. (The exam was about memory and the last few questions were about research methods) So far psychology is my best subject, but not my favourite.
My subjects in order from most to least favourite:
2- Psychology (It´s very interesting)
3- Law (Also very interesting but often makes me want to rip my brains out)
Tomorrow I´m planning to start either my second Law or second Business exam. In general, though, I way prefer studying to doing exams because they just stress me out. Wish me luck!!!
Since my last post, I have decided to stop completing my exams as they don´t count towards my grades and they were stressing me out. My aim now is to complete them once I feel fully comfortable that I know everything.
Right now I have started studying again. I picked up from where I left off before the Summer holidays
How I´m currently feeling about each subject:
BUSINESS: I´m enjoying it a lot. I´m currently looking at assessing business performance. It seems pretty straightforward so that´s good
PSYCHOLOGY: I´m finding it very interesting. I just picked my options and am currently doing Relationships.
LAW: It´s okay. I have just started on book 2; hopefully it gets more interesting.
I´m also really enjoying taking notes in a more fun way. I find that using colours helps me to study for some reason. Here is an example of my notes (on Relationships)
