education, GCSEs, holiday

The end is finally near…

Uuuuummm… So that happened. I disappeared off the face of the Earth for about a month. Yeah, sorry about that. I warned you though! In my last post about my last day of school ( https://madsem13.wordpress.com/2015/05/06/i-guess-thats-a-wrap-then/ ) I told you guys that I was starting my GCSEs and, shock horror, that’s all I have been doing for the past 4 weeks!

Firstly, I just wanted to give a little tip to anybody who is going to be doing exams next year, or later on this year. Do not take study leave for granted. If you have it, USE IT! I’m not saying I haven’t, used it because I definitely have, but maybe getting up at 9:30ish most days wasn’t the smartest idea. For me this meant I typically didn’t start revision until about 10:30 or 11, meaning that it was pretty much already hallway through the day. I was still able to revise lots and I think I have worked pretty darn hard these past couple of weeks, but if I had started earlier, maybe I could have got in one or two more hours, or even have allowed myself to finish for the day earlier. So, tip: aim to get up for normal school time, or as close to as possible.

Now here we are, 7th of June, 2015, and I only have 3 exams left. Geography and Chemistry on Tuesday, and Physics on Friday. Then I am done. And then I have a well deserved rest, which I am so excited for. It really is the best feeling to know that all your hard work is almost over, but that, for now, you should probably stop procrastinating and get back to work.

GCSEs have been hard work and no fun at all, despite what my headmistress believes, but I’m on the home straight, and I know my summer will make up for it! 17 down, 3 to go!

Adios, my lovelies, and see you in the not so distant future 🙂
