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.

THE £1 EYEBROW PENCIL


I recently found out that Rimmel London's cosmetics are tested on animals. This saddened me greatly and resulted in my pledge to no longer buy from their brand. My most used products of theirs was the Professional Eyebrow Pencil. I really liked this product and it complimented my colouring quite well. However, I can no longer justify purchasing a product when I know the money is going to a company that harm animals.

This situation led to an exploit of browsing make-up isles and drawing many brown lines on my hands. Whilst I was perusing the drugstore shelves I came across MUA's Eyebrow Pencil. I was amazed to find that it only cost £1. For this price, and since MUA are cruelty-free, I decided to give it a try.

HOW I STUDY AT HOME - EXAMS, GCSES AND MORE

Exactly Abby

Alongside the many other questions I receive as a Home-schooled Teenager, a regular is; 'How does it work?".

Although it's nothing extraordinary for me, the concept of home-schooling is baffling for a lot of people. The confusion as to how home-schoolers receive any qualifications is common. In this post I explain how I do my schooling at home and how it applies to real world life.
