I'm applying to UEA, York, Kent, Essex and then I'm torn between Leicester and Swansea for my 5th choice. However, I think I'm going to go for Leicester because I think I'd enjoy studying there more, the campus looks better and its closer to home, the only downside is the entry requirements are slightly higher.

Also I have some pressure on mocks for me now, cause I made a bet with my maths teacher today that I'd get an A or at least a high B. πŸ˜‚

Also forgot to add that I'm trying to get on top of my flashcards (cause im up to date making them just not reviewing them 😬) so I'll just try and do a few every time I get a spare minute and hopefully it'll compile overtime because right now my anki is a mess :smile:

I will try and revise as much over the weekend but I am working a lot so if you don't hear from me that'll probably because I did nothing other than a few maths questions and flashcards because I'm finishing my shift at 11pm (rip). Other than that have a good weekend everybody!

Well done for what you've done today! A break sounds like a good idea as you've done a lot over the last couple of weeks πŸ™‚

Thank you! You're definitely right about taking a break, I think it would be worth clearing my head so then I can take a deep dive and consolidate everything I've learnt and re-learnt over the past few weeks as a sort of more chilled revision session.

At least all my uni stuff is finished now so I can focus on exams, but it still feels like I'm just revising for test after test at the moment and I'd love a minute to just chill.

Completed:
-Biology Module 5 flashcards
-Biology Module 6 flashcards

To do:
-'Deep dive' module 5 and 6 bio content
-Revise Year 12 maths content for mocks

I woke up late today after a long shift at work last night so I missed out on some maths that I was going to do this morning. Mainly stressing over the workload for biology at the moment, I've been having regrets about the A-Levels I am taking but I can't change that now and I just have to do the best with what I have got.
