What I love about Revision… well I guess my favourite thing must be the colours and pretty notes. That’s why I wanted to sort out all my notes now instead of rushing around later on trying to organise everything and not actually taking any of it in.
What actually works… well that’s completely up to you. I hate it when you tell someone how you revise and they go “oh no that’s the worst way to revise.” It doesn’t matter unless you’re failing all your tests, then you keep doing that. Your method of revision could fail on everyone else in England but that doesn’t make it bad for you. It doesn’t mean that it will fail on everyone.
Personally, I don’t have a set way of revising. I do a mix of things and most of the time it works. I guess I just love it because it’s nice to go over the things you know and make sure you are completely prepared for a test.
I am currently revising for a History, a Geography, a French and a Maths test which isn’t so fun as I have to mush it all in 2 days, however, I will not lose hope. I have made a timetable and set times for me to do things and as long as I stick to that I should hopefully get it all completed.
Thank you for reading my blog and sorry for posting so late.
I don’t hate school or any of my lessons actually, but if there is one thing that is my least favourite, it is my French lesson. For all of the years, 7-9 French was compulsory and after that, I was going to give it up. Until an assembly that we had said that universities look for people who have done an Ebacc for their GCSEs which means that you HAVE to do French and at least one of History or Geography as well as all the core subjects. So now I am stuck with French for another two years.
It’s not that bad, It’s just for the past 3 years I haven’t had a good teacher so I am not as fluent as everyone else in the class. I felt really intimidated when the teacher started talking fluent French and I had absolutely no idea about what she was saying and what made it worst was that everyone else was talking back in fluent French.
Our class is pretty small and she asked everyone the same question so when she did ask me I had a rough idea of what I was going to say. However, I get terrified when a teacher asks me a question or puts me on the spot, and I just go red. I hate the fact that I might get a question wrong and even though that’s all part of learning, it makes me feel horrible and embarrassed about myself.
She asked me the second question after the first and I didn’t know what she was saying until she used a few examples and it just made me feel stupid and humiliated.
I don’t like feeling like I am 10 steps behind everyone else, and I would hate to get a bad mark in the GCSEs because that would mean that it was all for nothing. I am really worried about catching up with everyone.
