lia's path to becoming an academic weapon!

hi there. i'm lia and i do geography, psychology and english literature, alongside an EPQ which i am heavily procrastinating.. another thing i aim to change.

i'm in year 12 and i've just done some mid-year exams. when i put the percentages against 2019 grade boundaries, it looks a little like BBB. while these aren't bad bad grades, i want to push myself so that the lowest grades for me to be getting are A's.

i go to an all girl's grammar, plus i came in as an external so there's a large feeling of : everyone else knows what they're doing!! because of the driven mindset people have and also their familiarity with the school.

in the last week or so, i've been trying to speak to my teachers more. especially in geography which for the first few months has been my worst subject... now that i've become more comfortable speaking to them and asking them for help, i feel more confident about continuing to do so in the future!! i really recommend it. i set up a meeting with one of my teachers, trying to sort out the best way to approach a 20 mark essay and i also handed in a different essay for my other teacher to mark - a redo of the one i did in my exam.

seeing improvement in my answers physically marked by my teacher is so rewarding! i went from 11/20 in this essay (about factors affecting the storm hydrograph in a river basin i have studied -for me this is the exe) to 17/20. i find that once you show your commitment to improving, even just a little bit, your rapport with your teacher improves and its soooo much easier to ask for more feedback.

i've got about 6 things to do on my to-do list tonight,,, and it's 9:20 pm. i never have productive nights like these so wish me luck !

i'm also waiting to hear back about potentially progressing to round 3 of the british psychology olympiad. it's funny, because i absolutely bombed my exam for psych and here i am doing extra comps...,,,, lol. the next round would be incredibly difficult to get to so i'm not placing all my bets on it, but it's been enlightening all the same :smile:

i'm thinking of posting once every few days or once a week to just update on my progress or revision strategies, just so i ensure i am actually working towards these. i think that by posting, it will remind me to actually do something worth posting about!

have a good day :biggrin:

seeing improvement in my answers physically marked by my teacher is so rewarding! i went from 11/20 in this essay (about factors affecting the storm hydrograph in a river basin i have studied -for me this is the exe) to 17/20. i find that once you show your commitment to improving, even just a little bit, your rapport with your teacher improves and its soooo much easier to ask for more feedback.

i'm in year 12 and i've just done some mid-year exams. when i put the percentages against 2019 grade boundaries, it looks a little like BBB. while these aren't bad bad grades, i want to push myself so that the lowest grades for me to be getting are A's.

i go to an all girl's grammar, plus i came in as an external so there's a large feeling of : everyone else knows what they're doing!! because of the driven mindset people have and also their familiarity with the school.

in the last week or so, i've been trying to speak to my teachers more. especially in geography which for the first few months has been my worst subject... now that i've become more comfortable speaking to them and asking them for help, i feel more confident about continuing to do so in the future!! i really recommend it. i set up a meeting with one of my teachers, trying to sort out the best way to approach a 20 mark essay and i also handed in a different essay for my other teacher to mark - a redo of the one i did in my exam.

seeing improvement in my answers physically marked by my teacher is so rewarding! i went from 11/20 in this essay (about factors affecting the storm hydrograph in a river basin i have studied -for me this is the exe) to 17/20. i find that once you show your commitment to improving, even just a little bit, your rapport with your teacher improves and its soooo much easier to ask for more feedback.

i've got about 6 things to do on my to-do list tonight,,, and it's 9:20 pm. i never have productive nights like these so wish me luck !

i'm also waiting to hear back about potentially progressing to round 3 of the british psychology olympiad. it's funny, because i absolutely bombed my exam for psych and here i am doing extra comps...,,,, lol. the next round would be incredibly difficult to get to so i'm not placing all my bets on it, but it's been enlightening all the same :smile:

i'm thinking of posting once every few days or once a week to just update on my progress or revision strategies, just so i ensure i am actually working towards these. i think that by posting, it will remind me to actually do something worth posting about!

have a good day :biggrin:
