The Exam Mock Season has come to an end. Now the hard part has begun – receiving the results. Despite the difficulties and sheer intensity of completing the papers, receiving the actual result (for me at least) is always a challenge! The grade, the mark is set and can’t be changed whether it is good […]

It’s the second week back to school and things are starting to settle down. This week brought happiness and some disappointment as Oxbridge applicants received their results. I was one of the disappointed ones, but one thing I want to make clear about being an Oxbridge “reject” is that it won’t deter me. I gave […]

Christmas is over and the two weeks of holiday are gone. The first week of school is always hard especially when I had the realisation that as Year 13s we are nearing the end of our time here. The week started with an inspiring assembly about the National Council of Young Women which sounds like […]

The dreaded Monday morning after half term and you are sat on the freezing bus to school thinking to yourself, “Did I really do as much work as I could have done…?” However, as soon as you approach the school gates you know that it’s back to lessons and seeing your friends. On Monday I […]

As the deadline is fast approaching utilising the advice and guidance from my supervisor is essential – thus having a focused and determined mindset would enable success. But this is juxtaposed with the fact that it is NOW officially Half-Term. So Happy […]

  It is a busy day for extra-curricular activities with Netball, Chamber Orchestra and Chemistry Clinic scheduled at lunchtime. As a result, I had to prioritise activities and still save time to eat! Nevertheless, I encourage participation in a variety of skills and activities in order to become a balanced and all-rounded individual. Unsurprisingly, there […]

The assessment period has arrived with a scheduled Chemistry test during Period 3 on the topic we have just completed. The presence of study periods gave me the opportunity to recap and undergo further revision to aid my understanding.

Beginning the week with two study periods gives me an opportunity to catch-up and prepare for upcoming tests but mainly a chance to socialise and inform my friends about the eventful weekend I had. For me, Monday is the marker for the week. If Monday is completed quickly then the school week is even faster. […]

The past week has been one of UCAS misadventures. Whilst the upper sixth has braced the most memorable of slip ups already, an unintended Welsh application and incorrect course code to name a few, this week has been the final push for those doing early applications. A stressful time which has seen countless teachers sift […]
