December Update: Exams, Exams, Exams, and well... Exams.

December 20, 2015

Wow, what a month!
Firstly, I'd like to apologise for my absence from posting. I've been really busy at school and I haven't had time to sit down and write a post for this blog nor the other two I run. Why have I been busy, you ask? Exams.
As you may know, I am in my final year of compulsory education which means I'll be sitting my GCSEs in less that 6 months. I feel like I should be more worried about them but I'm not at all worried, which I'm hoping is a good thing. Anyway, in order to get us ready for our real exams, we sat a series of mock exams last week at school and I've been doing nothing but revising for the past couple of weeks in preparation for them. Actually, I tell a lie. I've been doing nothing but thinking about revising for the past couple of weeks in preparation for them. I only really started revising the weekend before the exams started and, to be honest, yes that did put a bit more pressure on me that I'd have liked but at the same time I'm glad I did that because it seemed to work. I managed to get through almost all 9 of my exams confidently, with one exception. The one I'm not too confident about is chemistry and I'm not afraid to admit that I've fudged that one right up. At least now I know what subject I need to focus more on though!
Aside from chemistry however I think I've done really well. I got through my maths exam with ease and I didn't even think about revising for that because maths is just something I can do. I got through my English exam well and I think I've done quite well on that but I'm also pretty confident that my teacher will pick up on a lot of things I can do better. I think I've probably gotten a B in English which, to be honest, I'm not too fussed about. I can live with a B, in English anyway. I also think I did quite well in my religious studies paper which I found to be really easy!
I surprised myself in my biology exam which I completed with ease, despite biology being my weak point. I've either done really well and surprised myself or I've gained confidence in some very questionable 'knowledge'. My business studies and ICT exams were very easy, as was my geography one to a certain extent. The only thing I think I've mucked up in my geography one is one of the case studies. This shouldn't affect my grade too much if I've done as well as I've thought in the rest of the paper though. The other two exams I had were chemistry and physics. Physics I believe I've done okay in however I didn't finish the final page, and chemistry... Well yeah, that happened.
So aside from my mocks, nothing much has happened. Kuk Sa Nim came to town for the Kuk Sool seminar last month, and a grading took place which I assisted with. Aside from that, it's all been quiet. School's finished for the year, Kuk Sool's finished for the year. It's just time to sit back, relax, and watch the calendar roll over one more time.
I'd like to thank everyone who played a part in my 2015 for making it such an amazing year full of great experiences and great fun. I'd also like to thank you, all of my readers and followers who have really helped me with the blog over the past year, making it bigger and more successful than I'd ever have imagined it to be. I'd like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and I hope you all have a happy new year full of great times and good fortune. That's me done for the year so I'll see you all in 2016 where I'll be posting every Thursday. See you soon!

    Here in America we just had midterms last week for all the classes so I know how you feel. If we maintain an A throughout the year we don't have to take finals in high school.
    I hope you did well on your finals,
    Best
