FROM HOME TO SIXTH FORM


As I explained in my post, What I Am Up To Next. Instead of going to sixth form last year - when I was 16 - I decided to stay at home and have a year out.

I've done all my studies and exams at home up to now. But I have chosen to go to sixth form for A levels a year later. I have had a really interesting progression from home study to studying at sixth form.

WHY I DON'T SHOP AT PRIMARK


Recently whilst I was on a trip out, I noticed a rather large and dazzling Primark store. This store was showcasing a large number of garments for less than £5 and commanded the gaze of onlookers. Seeing the sheer complexity of this place prompted me to write down my feelings about shopping in cheaper big brand shops such as Primark.

THE MANY THOUGHTS DURING AN EXAM


It's been a whole year since I sat my GCSEs. Contemplating this fact the other day, I remembered how much I enjoyed myself whilst sitting in the new environment of an exam hall. To commemorate the occasion I have decided to write down a fun out-line of my thought process whilst doing my exams. Most of these are true (okay, maybe exaggerated a bit... a lot) and reflect (some of) my genuine thoughts during examination time. Enjoy.

STUDY INSPIRATION & TIPS!


Learning is mandatory. But that doesn't mean it shouldn't be considered fun. After many years of being home-schooled I've learnt lots of techniques to help with focus and enjoyment of studies. You definitely perform better when you're enjoying yourself, so it figures that making revision pleasurable is beneficial. Last year, I wrote a post called 'A Homeschooler's Guide to Revision' which was received well and hopefully helped many students.

This is an updated list of revision techniques and plenty of pictures for inspiration.
