gyg: revision time, lads 💪✨

Hello hello, and welcome to my very own grow your grades!👋
Inspired by that of others, i have deliberated 🤔 and decided 😔 upon making a gyg, in the hope that it will instill some motivation 💪 in me.
I'm literally doing 1 gcse, iGCSE maths (edexcel AND higher 🤓), cause i did latin (grade 7) english (grade 9) , bio (grade 8), classics (6) and ancient hist. (6 UGH) i/GCSEs last/ last last year(S).

✨maths✨ is... a subject...? it's very uh interesting (lies 🤥) i'm pretty average, grade hopefully 5+.

but im ALSO doing ✨IRISH!✨ 🍀☘️
tryna get up to b1 level, which sucks cause im rock-bottom lol. i did go to gaeilscoil 🏫 for all of 4 (interesting) years, but i have since been homeschooled from a young age 👧 and since forgot the irish language and all of its hopes and joys 😍. i hope by next year i will achieve that TEG B1 level! 😃😃

✔️ quadratic and reciprocal graphs
✔️ finding the equation of the tangent to a curve
✔️similar shapes
✔️motion of a particle
no irish 🙅*♀️ cause today was just a mathsy day. tomorrow i hope to cover describing adjectives in irish, ie. arda, láirde, tanaí, leandránacha, etc. and how to apply those ajds properly to people words (ie, deirfiur, mo mhamaí, etc)
