My Exam Diary Part 9 ~ First Round of AS predicted grade Assessments!

Published May 2, 2021 by I Blog

Hello you lovely people!

It is that time of year again where I document the trials and tribulations of a student going through the yearly exams at a British comprehensive school.

However, this year there is a twist, as not only is this my first year of A-level exams (AS CLUB WHOOP), but because of the pandemic, the WJEC (Welsh exam board) have once again cancelled our exams *sad violin music 🎻 *.

Instead, they have informed out teachers that we have to sit a variety of “assessments” (which are pretty much just small scale exams – don’t even get me started).

So, I thought I’d take you along with me for my experience of exams-that-aren’t-actually-exams.

This post is going to comprise of my first four exams *sorry assessments* (which take place over a two week period) and the next post will be of the last three which take place over a two week period, 3 weeks from now.

This year, I’ve got two biology test, 2 chemistry tests, 2 maths tests (mechanics and pure) and a drama written test.

And, as always, you can view the other segments of my exam diary here 🙂

Anywho, without further ado, let’s start the tests!

Some updates

Published April 18, 2021 by I Blog

Hello Everyone!

Firstly, I juts want to take a moment to thank everyone for being so patient with me and my (lack of) posting schedule. I am truly sorry about this, but I’m having a bit of a chaotic time in school at the moment.

I don’t know how many of you are British reading this, but basically our exams got cancelled (again) and now our teachers have to give us predicted grades. And to do this, our schools have to give us assessments, which are basically more chill versions of exams.

So, I’ve been manically trying to do cram revision for my tests and I’ve unfortunately not had a lot of time to write blog posts 😦 Which is honestly really gutting as I’ve been having content ideas, but not any time to actually write the posts.

So, for the next couple of months, I want to be totally transparent and say that there aren’t going to be posts twice a week, like my normal posting schedule, and there may not even be posts every week. I’m aiming to get at least one post out every two weeks (ideally more, but I’ve got to prioritise school). However, my assessments end at the end of May, so hopefully in June I’ll be back to my regular posting schedule (Just in time for my bloggiversary!)!

My new temporary posting schedule is (ideally) going to be at 5pm every other Saturday.

I’ve really missed posting and just writing in general, but this is what is going to be the best bet for me in order to not get overly stressed, and I hope that you guys can understand that!

I hope that any of you out there that are dealing with school exams at the moment are doing okay, and just remember that you have had a crazy chaotic year! You are doing amazing and you are undoubtedly trying your best, so please try not to stress!

I look forward to talking to you guys soon!

I’ve got over 450 books on my TBR. Here’s the ones that I’m most excited to read.

Hello everyone!

Unfortunately, no, the title is not a typo. I’ve just counted and I have approximately 453 books in my physical collection that I haven’t read yet (this includes print books and ebooks that I own). So, I thought that today I would take some time to go through some of the ones that I am most interested in reading!

This list also isn’t going to include series that I’m in the middle of currently reading (Avatar, Series of Unfortunate Events, Narnia, etc) as I’ve already been talking about these. This list is going to be full of books that I haven’t read that I’m excited to start! 😍

Also, these aren’t going to be in any particular order, I’m just writing about them as I think of them 😆

How To Train Your Dragon (series) by Cressida Cowell

I recently rewatched the first film and I immediately went and bought the boxed set of this book series as I feel that it’s going to be something that I’ll love.

Firstly, it’s about Dragons, which I love. Secondly, it’s about Vikings, which I love. And thirdly, I love the film. Therefore, the stars are aligned for this read!

The Backlist Readathon ~ Reading Blog :)

Published March 28, 2021 by I Blog

Hello everyone!

I am so sorry that I’ve been MIA recently. School *sigh*. I’m hoping to start posting more but school is my top priority at the minute.

However, it’s not only my blogging that’s been suffering because of school, but also my reading! I’m currently three books behind on my Goodreads goal and I have literally read six books this whole year!

So, when I heard about the backlist readathon, I thought that it was just what I needed; you spend a week reading books that you’ve been meaning to get to for a long time, and BOY DO I HAVE LOTS OF THOSE!

My goal in this readathon is to do as many of the prompts in as little books as possible 😂 (which for me is two books).

Also, I’ve been worrying that my reading blogs are really boring????? Let me know what you think in the comments! I need some feedback on what you want me to put in the reading blogs!

Anyway, my rambling has gone on long enough so let us get into the reading!

Anyway, without further ado let us get into the haul!


Christmas


Demigods and Magicians by Rick Riordan

The first book that I got for Christmas is demigods and magicians by Rick Riordan. I’m really excited about this one as I just read the Kane Chronicles at the end of last year and loved them! So, I’m really excited to read the companion!
