Ready to Lock In: My Grow My Grades Blog

Hi! I'm Lottie, and I am a Year 13 Student! πŸ’–

I study music, chemistry and maths at A-level, I want to study music at uni next year, and I need A*, A, A to get in to my first choice.😡*πŸ’«

I'm starting this blog to hold myself accountable, and join a community that will keep me in good stead to get my grades, which is my ultimate goal. I worked so hard to get my offer, and I have to get my grades to get everything in place.πŸ™

In Year 12, I had to put school on the back burner to focus on my health which was getting really bad. It's been about a year since I promised myself that I will achieve my goals, and I have done everything I can since then to get into my first choice uni, and to grow my grades from C and Ds to As and A*S. It's the final stretch now, and I want to document the highs and lows of my journey. πŸ’•

Soon, my coursework deadline for music is coming up. I have my performance the first week back at school, and my composition is also nearly due. On top of this, I also am doing grade 8 flute and I have my driving test at the end of April! 😡

Overall, things are pretty stressful at the moment, and I want to keep on top of my goals, and also not destroy myself in the process lmao. 😻

See you soon!

I'm starting this blog to hold myself accountable, and join a community that will keep me in good stead to get my grades, which is my ultimate goal. I worked so hard to get my offer.
This time last year, I had to put school on the back burner to support my health, which was getting really bad. Since about a year ago, I have worked so so hard to get back on track to achieve my goals. I revised everyday of Summer in year 12 to get myself where I needed to be, and its the final stretch now.
See you soon!

Two week update

Cutting Yourself Some Slack

If I'm being honest, the last two weeks haven't been my most productive ever. I'm really tired, and the anxiety of upcoming exams is making day-to-day life harder than I'd anticipated.
I've still managed to do my grade 8 flute, go into school, do my performance exam, and revise, but my ability to complete things quickly has been massively impacted. The thing I'm struggling most with is the resting anxiety, the constant reminder of what is on the horizon and how much it means to me.
During this time, I've actively been trying to cut myself some slack, on top of A-levels things in my personal life have become a little harder, and there have been a couple days this week where I've decided to can the revision. That actually, I wouldn't be able to revise effectively and I'd rather rest effectively than burn myself out over low-quality revision.

I thought I'd share an article about exam stress from the charity CALM if anyone else is struggling with this at the minute.


A-level Update

In other news, I did my A-level recital yesterday, I don't know how much I am allowed to say about it without risking my grade, but I'm really really pleased with how it went! πŸ’–
I'm going to finish my chemistry course soon, and I'm hoping that it will happen this week so we can do extra revision in class.
Maths is also going well, I got an A* in the mock paper that I did before the Easter Holidays, which if you told me a year ago that I was getting A*s in maths I would have fallen off of my chair. I think its important at this time to remember how much we have grown (academically or otherwise) to keep sane, and to realise that actually, it's just a case of input and output. Exams are designed so that if you work hard, you get the grade back that you deserve for what you put in (for the most part).

Hope everyone is enjoying the last few weeks of Year 13 before the end 😱


See you soon,
Lottie
