Hellllllooooo! Lolz I just randomly decided to make one (rather inspired from yours) - let‘s see how long I can keep it going Of course I’ll tag you and thank you so much!
I feel the same way for English as well - I used to love it in Years 7 and 8 (mainly coz of creative writing :awesome:) but GCSEs kinda stopped that. Anyway, I’m starting to enjoy it more now!!
Year 11 has been just piles and piles of tests and exams which is a shock from Year 10 :lol: Hopefully we‘ll get used to it…
Thank you! I swear I plan to revise slowly and over a long period time but I ALWAYS end up resorting to last minute cramming. I’ll try my best though
omg i love that glad i was a source of inspiration lolz! and ofc you'll be able to keep it up! I'm rooting for you and here to cheer you on! <3

I'm trying to get back into creative writing, poetry and english in general also! like you, I used to be really passionate about it, but GCSE is a completely different thing fro, what I used to love haha.

and yes!!! i have gotten so. many. tests. it's inhumane. but hopefully we do get used to it

AND SAME! i told myself i'd start revision at the beginning of this year so it's little and often, rather than cramming, but I didn't end up doing so, and will likely end up cramming for mocks lol. I'm tried not to jinx myself, as I will try my best to ensure that's not the case!

Thank you so much!

IKR! What texts are you doing for Eng Lit, if you don’t mind me asking? We’re doing An Inspector Calls, A Christmas Carol and Romeo & Juliet

IT’S SO ANNOYING. I have 2 tests tomorrow and another on Friday and I can’t find the motivation and energy to revise oml. I can’t wait for half term, even if that means I have to revise.

Our teachers keep telling us that if exams get cancelled, these mocks will probably go towards our grade or something so maybe that will somewhat motivate me to start revising early!

Post #4 | 2 weeks since I’ve updated, 5 weeks till my mocks




Oh god. It’s really getting serious now. So much work, too much work.

I’m trying to create some sort of revision timetable on Google Calendar. It’s a bit fractured at the moment, but I’m getting there. Timetables have never really worked for me before; I find it hard to adhere to strict timings and goals. I need to be in the mood for a certain subject, you know? Sometimes I’ll be in the organic chemistry mood, other times I’ll feel like doing some algebra. A timetable kinda ruins that. Besides, it’s hard to predict exactly what homework you have and what you’ll do in the evening. But I know I need to be more organised and spread all my revision out evenly so we’ll see how this goes.

According to my timetable right now, I’m supposed to be doing English Language, yet here I am on TSR. Might tweak it a bit

I was sick with a cold throughout the whole of half term so I didn’t do much revision, only compulsory homework. There’s literally no time for doing the things I love in the evenings - I should probably allocate some time for that in my fancy schmancy timetable. Back to school, meh it’s okay. Very busy, very quick. I feel like mocks will be here in no time.

Anyway, gonna go revise now. Better to stick to my revision timetable, eh? Until my next update…

Hey guys! I’m Icosagon - I’m in Year 11 (*screams*) and I’ve decided to make a my first ever GYG to motivate myself to be productive and to also create a personal log of this crazy year!

Attachment 1033911
^actual footage of my last brain cell in an exam





What subjects am I taking?The regulars:
Biology
Chemistry
Physics
Maths
English Literature
English Language

My choices (not very good choices I’ve realised):
Geography
Art Textiles
Food Preparation and Nutrition
German

My favourite subjectsWell, it’s complicated. I love all my subjects (shocker) but there are some parts that I absolutely detest (yes, I’m looking at you poetry anthology).

Rather than elaborately explain what I like and dislike about each subject, I’ve created 2 tier lists to present what I feel about each subject, the former tier list being how much I enjoy them and the latter being how ‘good’ I am at them.

Spoiler:
Show
Attachment 1032444Attachment 1032443
you can hardly read them but oh well

Stuff I like to do in my (non-existent) freetimeWatch my favourite shows and films
Listen to music
Edit videos
Annoy my brother
Bake
Read
Annoy my brother again
Play badminton
Go swimming

Things I’d like to change from Year 10• I am TERRIBLE at writing essays in English Lit so I would love to improve my scores on that - I plan to do this by just writing tons of them and asking my teacher to mark them
• Try harder and start revising earlier for topic tests
• Make revision resources as I go along the year and as I finish each topic - I’m primarily making Anki flashcards as my revision resources, with a couple of posters for some difficult topics
• Making my revision relaxed and spread out through the year rather than rushed and condensed a couple of weeks before my exams
• Interacting more in my class and actually asking my teacher for help if I don’t understand something
• Not zoning out in classes - always seems to happen in Geography agghhh



Just seen this Icy and omfg I love it!
Also love the pic - me and my friend have matching pfp's on insta with that image :lol:

One GCSE we both take is Art Textiles :five:
honestly i absolutely love this! good luck with ur gcses Icy! :hugs:
also pls may I be tagged?

I’d highly recommend it - it’s so funny and one of my favourites
Draining is the perfect word for it. I’m just trying to get through it by telling myself that I have one less written exam haha
Lol that’s me every evening!

hello! <333 sorry I'm arriving so late, but good luck with making the timetable or if you've already made the timetable, sticking to it! I wanted to make a revision timetable, but didn't for all the reasons you mentioned - who knows what homework I'll get that day? what if I'm not in the mood to make an Eva Smith chronology or cell transport mind map? what if something comes up? What if some revision runs over its time slot and I absolutely lose my mind over it?

it also just takes time to think about how I'm going to organise the timetable (I'm an overthinker, so trying to make the perfect timetable would drive me mad lmao. "But why should I revise chemistry over physics on Tuesdays? You struggle more with physics, so give more time to that... but you still need to study chemistry- " You get the drill lol) and making the timetable itself is a chore.

I do hope you're having a generally more positive experience than what I think I would with the timetable though

And lucky you! You've got 3 (?) more weeks till mocks! Mine start on Monday </3 Wishing you luck (though I'll do this closer to the time also) and that you feel productive and prepared for your exams!

Yeah that timetable kinda failed :lol: I guess I was right - it’s probably just not for me. I’m also a massive overthinker plus I don’t work too well with restraints like that. Idk man - I think I should at least roughly plan how much I should be doing per day.

Wishing you lots of luck too - you’re going to smash these! Thank you
