that biology exam was a piece of crap, there was a graph on nearly EVERY PAGE, there was like 2% content from our actual syllabus, wtf u playing at AQA
As requested by an anon yesterday!
In theory, aim to stay on top of your work, understanding it as you go along instead of leaving it all til the end, but don’t worry if you can’t, because I never could, even though I tried. I was absolutely hopeless throughout the term then I’d study during study leave and then do fine in the exams. So it is possible. But do aim to keep on top of it, if you can.
Any other advice would be subject specific so feel free to ask if it’s Bio, Chem, Maths or French you’re worried about!
Let’s hope there’s a beautiful 8 marker about photosynthesis or respiration and let’s hope also that the HSW questions aren’t the type that make me suicidal - is it really a tall order to want stuff that’s on the syllabus to come up on the paper?
Good luck everyone, I’m off to bed xx
i’ve drawn out the Nitrogen Cycle far too many times i don’t think i have a healthy relationship with it anymore i know too much about mutualistic N fixing bacteria and if it doesn’t come up on my exam on Friday i’m gonna cry
Won’t be back until Monday. Rly excited yh. But omg, I did a UKCAT practice paper yesterday and got 640, just did one now and got 660, IS THIS A TREND I SEE BEFORE ME??? I certainly hope so. Although omg, the abstract reasoning, what the fuck. Genuinely guessed every single one (and got about half of them right which is weird) but seriously it is bullshit and I have no idea how to improve on it, someone help meeeeeeeeeee
Biology paper was a really good one thank the Lord. Just General Studies tomorrow which means a pretty chilled day doing some last minute Chemistry revision for Wednesday. Not been on Tumblr much recently because I’m kicking the procrastination habit ;) but tonight I’m just chillaxin’ after yesterday’s hardcore studying. Been re-reading The Fault In Our Stars and oh, my God. I don’t think it could get any more perfect. John Green is one of the very few authors who can actually make me laugh out loud. Except this time I’m getting upset even from the start because I know what’s going to happen :( I want Augustus and Hazel to be happy forever and ever and ever
ieurioeiwropiweprw I am not feeling ready. And like, there’s some people who’ll say they’re not ready, when actually they’re ready. And that annoys me, because I am seriously not ready. Bleh. Got an A on my Biology mock today though yaay
SHIT SCARED FOR THE RESULT OF MY CHEMISTRY ISA WHICH I’M GETTING BACK TOMORROW
First of all my Dad got really mad at me for something really stupid and had the biggest go at me and ugh I wish he’d just listen to me but he never does. I have done. Nothing. Wrong. Nothing worth nearly crashing the flippin’ car over anyway. He’s such a drama queen he just needs to chill. :|
Then… my team came second in a Chemistry Analyst competition, which I didn’t see coming in a million years because half the time we had no idea what we were doing. Lmao. It was the funniest thing ever and when our names were called at the awards ceremony we literally couldn’t stop laughing and were in hysterics as we collected our prizes. Must have looked absolutely ridiculous but it was just hilarious, and on top of that, the prize was a £20 book voucher which is brilliant. :)
But finally. To set the mood for the end of the day. My phone got trapped inside a bendy chair and got bent in half. What the actual hell. So now I have no phone. Fan-bloody-tastic. I’m now home and my dad’s mad at me and I have no phone and I am in a rubbish mood and I have so much work to do this weekend. 6th form life sucks.
Can free radical substitutions just go and die please, thanks. Biology is so much fugging easier to learn.
My day was… comme-ci comme-ca. Started off a bit slow as I was gradually waking up (fell asleep for half an hour in Biology) but then it got pretty funny towards the end. I’m now convinced though that my post-school headaches are from laughing too much. Really need to calm down, was going a bit crazy in that Chemistry lesson with my wonderful Scottish accent, although I don’t think Dr Bennett liked it too much. That lesson on CFCs and Ozone really did need livening up though.
Biology ISA tomorrow, woo. Right, I’m having my nap now.
