Entering New Territory

Tomorrow I will be entering GCSE year, Year 10 and I will be studying German, Geography and Physical Education for the next two years. I am quite nervous to be starting GCSE's but I am also quite excited as I love the subjects that I chose and I am now also one year closer to leaving High school.

Keep Organised 
Make sure to hand every piece of work in on time and complete work the night it is set, so that you can have a stress free year and more spare time on weekends. Get a planner so that you can write down all of your exams dates, when you have to study, and when you have homework due. Time management is essential. If you're given an assignment that's due next week, don't procrastinate, get started within a few days of receiving it. The more time you have, the less you will be stressed.

Study. Study. Study 
Try to study in 20-50 minute intervals, taking five or ten minutes in between for a break. Breaking your studying into shorter periods of time will make it less of a chore also give yourself time to absorb the material before moving on. Make sure work is done before socialising, studying is a crucial part of learning, so do the work before heading out to have fun.

Be Optimistic
Being optimistic is always good. Seeing only the negative aspects of any situation can cause you to miss opportunities and neglect problems that need to be solved. Look for the light at the end of the tunnel and start seeing the glass as half full instead of half empty. 

Good luck to everyone starting high school, college or university!
