Zoe blogs about New Year's resolutionsTuesday, January 07, 2014 12:00 AM
Zoe, one of our student bloggers, shares her "study-lutions" for 2014.
Happy New Year to all!
I hope that your holidays have left a feeling of refreshment and readiness for the final push before we’re plunged into exams (not that I want to spoil the holidays with the thought!). But I must admit that the New Year has left me fondly reminiscing about my time in Sixth Form, which I can undoubtedly say have been my favourite years so far.
Now more than ever, I’m excited about the idea of moving to uni, with a new lease of life. But I must hold my horses, because there are some things I must get out of the way first! I’m looking back on the past year and looking at little improvements that I can make to reach those all-important grades at the end of Year 13. What I like to call study-lutions (lame, I know). I’ve got a few so far!
- · Get some more work experience. I love to be busy, so I may as well take advantage of the fact! Especially as my course involves 50% practical work, so getting the practice in now is a great opportunity
- · Kick the procrastination! This is something that we are all guilty of, especially around the time of the Christmas holidays, but it can be improved with determination and time management, which brings me to my next resolution
- · Get organised. This is something I would like to say I’ve become pretty good at (if you look at the difference between my GCSE and A-level planners and folders!) but that doesn’t mean that there can’t be improvements (time to bring out my old friend – the revision timetable!)
- · Get involved in as much as possible! As I said before, I love to keep on my feet and so being busy gives me more energy than sitting around. Therefore, why not use that energy to make 2014 a special year.
So I wish you all a prosperous, enjoyable and exciting 2014, and lets all take a moment to appreciate that were halfway through A2 (oohhh! Living on a prayer!)
Until next time!
