get all a's on my a levels
AS levels

Just started AS levels this year. I’m aiming to do as well as possible in these, so that I can afford to do slightly less well next year, and still get As overall, although I would like to do really well next year too, and will work to this end.

I really need As, as I want to go to Oxford to study Law, so without them, no chance!

For GCSEs, I got 11 A*s and 2 As, though, so I think that this is realistic



read the classics
What I've read so far...

So far I have read…
‘Emma’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Sense and Sensibility’ – Jane Austen
‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ – Harper Lee
‘A Room with a View’ – E.M. Forster
‘Jane Eyre’ – Charlotte Bronte
‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ – Jules Verne
‘Little Women’ – Louisa May Alcott

Hmm, I think that’s it. Quite appalling really, that that’s all the classics I’ve ever read…

Reading the classics

I’m trying to read more classic novels, and so far, in the past couple of weeks, I’ve done ‘Emma’ (Jane Austen) and ‘A Room with a View’ (E.M. Forster). I really enjoyed both of them! Any suggestions for what to read next?
