Yesterday, my CW teacher told me that I have a natural ability to storytelling and I can make characters come alive however I need to work on my technical skills.
Plus, I discovered I had a C grade on one of my poetry essays which I dictated to a notetaker and my spelling and grammar issues would considerably less. So I am thinking that dictating is the way to go for my exam success.
That 124 page document is all of my best writing I’ve done over three years! Just in case #uni wants to see what I’m capable of. I’ll be chuffed if I get asked for an interview and I want them to be wowed not only by my words but my #organisation #preciouspages

Apologies for my absence yesterday, I was very busy.
Today’s quote of the day is from Lee Child:
Don’t get it right just write – Lee Child.
Thank you for all your love and support, thanks to you this little blog has survived this vast thing called the Internet for a week!
This evening’s post is to do with grades and university. Lately I’ve realised how stressed I’m getting especially since I completed my UCAS form. I’m just so scared! My first year grades are at a DDC and I need a BBC to get to Cardiff.. I just feel like I can’t do it. I dont want to let anybody down even more so miss out on so many great experiences in the future. Plus I feel like I have to sucseed to break the whole disability/female barrier.
So below, is my revision plan which has been in action since september but now it’s time to kick ass:
- Write in you’re planner what you do in class/homework/ even the revision you do! This will help you be more organised when it’s crunch time; it’ll act like your refrence/checklist.
- Make your notes neat – the last thing you want to b stressing about is deciphering hasty scribbles!
- Use plenty of colour! This helps comitt to memory, especially blue.
- Use revision guides to make extra notes.
- Keep a list of all the books you read on your subject, they may come in handy to refer to in an exam.
- Block out any distractions while revising i.e internet. Use apps like cold turkey.
- Make mind maps after every class and stick them in your study area.
- Uses sites like Sparknotes/Shmoop to help you with Lit essay quotations!
- Test yourself regularly. Type in your specific subject and your ready to go! With multiple choice, true/false and match or even asteroids.. it makes learning a bit more bearable.
- Get at least eight hours sleep and eat a healthy breakfast.
- Set alarms on your phones that tell you when to revise.
- Go to after hours classes.
- Keep hydrated.
- Have a growth mindset and PMA!
- Reward yourself once you reach a target.
- Have a morning/ night off for some me time!
I hope these tips help you out guys! I’ll keep you up to date on my progress!
