I’m making this my primary goal for the upcoming semester. I’m only taking 12 credit hours, so there’s really no reason why this can’t happen for me. Hopefully I won’t get sidetracked with work, practicing, etc, but I’d really like to have a perfect GPA in my last semester as an undergrad 3 months ago

Got my results a couple of weeks ago, and got AAB, which was enough to get into university (yay)
Done =] 15 months ago
Results come out tomorrow! And I’m nervous. I’ve already had a nightmare that I got BCC. I really hope I got AAB or at least ABB. It’s the B in physics I’m worried about, I think I may have cocked it up and got a C, when I need a B to get into university. Aah, I’m so nervous! 15 months ago
So revision time has come around again and I find myself on the computer wasting the day away. Oops. To get to uni this year I need AAB, and I’m on track for that. Teachers say it may even be possible to get AAA, but I doubt I’m going to do that. An A in physics? Haha, that would be a miracle. Still, I would like to try for it…
My first exam is on the 17th May – it’s a physics retake exam which I got a B in the first time round. A low B though, so I’m retaking it. After that the exams are more serious, not so many retakes, and I need to nail these ones first time round. Wish me luck, results come out in August, and then I’ll find out if I get to uni this year. I can’t wait. 20 months ago
Straight B’s or better: do-able; straight A’s: not too certain. The fact that I will be missing an entire week of school two weeks from now does not settle my worries. I should plot this one out:
- AP Stat: I need to read up on a few chapters, since my brain, for some reason, did not take in the info from the beginning of this semester. It feels like I have missed so much.
- Pol Sys: Easy.
- German III: Easier than Political Systems.
- Brit Lit: Making a B will be easy. For making an A, I just need to do the work. Minimal effort. :)
- AP Env Sci: The work is easy. The info seems easy. However, I have not even received a test back in this class with a B. Needless to say, it has been a real stress-inducer year-round. O, Environmental Science, how you have deceived me so.
- Psych: Minimal effort = A. 21 months ago
It is still hard to believe how one class brought down the grades of all my other classes. Last semester, I had straight A’s, excluding one class: AP Environmental Science. What hurt the most was that trying to bring up that one grade to an A caused the rest of my grades to drop down to B’s… all of this effort, only to come out of first-semester APES with a low C. I’ve changed up my study plans, hoping I can end high school running. 22 months ago
with a solid 80.3%. Math is my worst subject so although not entirely happy, it’s alright.
English exam today. Finished geography. One more assignment in another course and I’m done.
Will calculate my average sometime next week. Not straight A’s, but maybe I got an A average. 22 months ago
Forgot to mention how I finished my spanish homework. I used pomodoro method.
It was HARD because I sooooo wanted to be done with that assignment. I looked at the timer and I had 11 minutes left, I said “Oh lord, help me stay focused!”. I did 1 pomodoro.
It is worth noting that I have not been consistently doing my concentration exercise. I think I will have to start doing it daily now that school’s in session.
If you don’t know, my concentration exercise is staring at a candle for 10 minutes. Okay, a bit more than that. I am GIVING my ATTENTION to the candle for 10 minutes. Sounds simple, but sometimes it is not and sometimes you can have beautiful/strange experiences. Anyway, it helps you practice focusing on ONE thing and also helps clear your mind so you can use your subconcious more readily. Whenever you get a jolt of inspiration as you write a paper is you contacting your subconcious. Imagine getting that more often with your math homework, language classes, etc!! I did this for my philosophy class and the most BRILLIANT ideas came from my head to my essay and I made an A in a class where the professor never gives As. Effortlessly.2 years ago
