my gcse gyg - entering my academic weapon era...i hope...

hey guys!!
ive been wanting to make a gyg for ages and i am now sick (why now?! i need to revise!!) so thought if im not gonna work i may as well think about the work im *going* to do (apart from i probably wont do it!<3)

i do maths, eng lit, eng lang, combined science, religious studies, french, geography, art and dt!! (hoping to do geography, english literature, and maths at alevel and ART AND DT TOGETHER IS THE WORST)

to any year 9s picking your gcses thinking youre creative and artistic - you will lose all your creativity when you pick TWO COURSEWORK SUBJECTS and their deadlines are ON THE SAME DAY - honestly send help.

anyway -
my goals are to improve at english literature, as well as finishing my art and dt work before its too late!! if anyone has any tips for any of my subjects i would muchly appreciate them (especially pride and prejudice because WHY IS IT 400 PAGES??)

anyway my goal is today:
-to finish my volume 3 pride and prejudice flashcards
-do some geography practice questions (coasts)
-finish the collage im doing for art
(and optionally to go through my french speaking questions)

rlly hoping this will help hold me accountable because my easter revision schedule lasted about 3 days and i am now... 4 days behind (I NEED TO BE MORE STRESSED WHY HAS THE STRESS NOT KICKED IN YET)

thanks for reading!! good luck everyone :smile:)

Hi my name is stress, I’m here to motivate you. 😄

Seriously though hope you get better soon and good luck! Tips when you’re ill, try watching videos of the content and doing things like flashcards on quizlet, so you still do things but it doesn’t take as much energy

Tagging some people (Tbh I don’t know the correct spelling of most of the usernames so will probably accidentally leave a lot of people out)

actually that sounds like a good idea, maybe some extra knowledge will permeate into my brain lolll
8/4/24 - 32 days until our first exam (i think im not that good at dates lol)
good afternoon guyss!! i had to have a student room ban this morning or i would have sat here for 2 hours but im back now 🥳
this morning i did
-pride and prejudice flashcards (im trying to finish all my 'resources' by the end of easter)
-finished writing my french speaking flashcards, then i went through theme 1 because i hardly know them lol
-2 small drawings for my art so i can start my development tomorrow!!

i also went for a run to procrastinate revising (but all my procrastination running keeps me healthy at least haha)

I guess thats quite good but i did basically nothing yesterday and my plan was to make up for that today but i guess not?!?!
gonna do some geography paper 2 rn and maybe macbeth theme mindmaps after dinner!

if anyone has a list of themes for macbeth/pride and prejudice I would appreciate them - i've obvs made my own list of themes that im starting to make mindmaps of but i dont want to miss any themes (like i forgot about the theme of guilt for macbeth until right now LOL)

good luck with your revision guys and remember to take breaks!! also (i have to remind myself this all the time) revision is about what you do and not how much you do - like i used to be so stressed about doing a certain number of hours of revision per day but efficiency is key lolol <-- just motivating myself there clearly haha

anywayy have a good rest of your day everyone!!!!

definitely try it!! i normally only do it when im seriously behind on revision but as the art exam is coming up soon (two weeks for me) its deffo time for me to start multitasking lol 😭
good morning!! (or afternoon idk lol im still in my pjs so its for sure still morning for me haha) 31 DAYS UNTIL GCSES

i didnt do the macbeth theme mindmaps yesterday (what was i expecting) but finished my list of macbeth themes this morning so now i need to start making the mindmaps!! i also just did 5 corbett maths 5 a days because ive skipped so many 😭😭

i think now im going to focus on my dt nea and art until this afternoon - i'll go back to my revision around 3/4 because i desperately need to get some coursework done (ive started dreaming about it which is probably not a good sign)

goals for today

finish NEA section D (and get a move on with section E)

2 pen drawings for art

go over french speaking questions

animal farm theme list (or work on my poetry document idk)

remember that ive got my tutor at 5:30 (i need to stop being late lol)


if anyone has any tips for DT NEAs (especially section E/F) i would really appreciate that because no joke my teacher has been slacking more than me recently - like shes supposed to get us good grades!?!? but no?!?!? and im litch so behind so i'm gonna 'blast through my dt' (which means ill do one slide before binging derry girls for 2 hours xoxo i love michelle)

hopefully i can get all this done but lets be real i probably wont haha good luck with all your revision guys (or take a break if you need to ! <33)

haha forreal - i literally spend a week on art then forget about it for a month while i do dt 😭 coursework is literally my worst enemy
The lack of motivation is so real right now.
i think we have have to be pretty harsh on ourselves, like say I can't watch an episode of this show tonight until I've done 2 hours dt coursework, if haven't done that no tv tonight or tomorrow.

woww - i'm the opposite and use my lack of motivation as an excuse to take a break but i need to take these exams seriously!! im gonna use this mindset now and hope that helps bc it sounds like a good way to go about it - i used to do that alot but kinda got out of it!! tyy
28 days until GCSES
i was super demotivated for the last few days but im starting to feel more motivated again lol - i probablly should be more balanced because i seem to swing from motivated to nothing like weekly at this point lol
anyway im just amking the most of the motivation and so far have done
-dt slideshow about 40 mins
-chemistry unit 6 - i made flashcards for the first half of the unit
-biology on cognito for about 40 mins

right now im doing an english language past paper

i also want to do today a macbeth practice question, some geography revision, my corbett maths 5 a day and then some art in the evening

also, if anyone could help me by reading through this essay i wrote (english literature) and just giving some feedback (no need for a mark because i know that would take you ages) i would seriously appreciate it!!
