I try to set academic goals every year for myself, because I think they give me a bit of a sense of direction, at least for the first couple of weeks or so! Last year you all really enjoyed my year 11 goals blog post, so I decided that this year I was going to write up my goals for the next couple of years at school as I’ll be completing my A Levels. This post is another collab, with one of my best blogging friends Hannah Beth from Hannah Beth Blogs!
MAKE A MINDMAP AT THE END OF EACH TOPIC
I found big A3 topic mindmaps really helpful for my GCSEs, and I know that they’re going to be really helpful to me at A Level too. I think they’ll work best for psychology, as English Lit & History might not have such defined topics, but I’m going to keep them in a big folder and they’ll be really helpful for revision. I know this might not seem like a huge ‘goal’ or something difficult to stick to, however it’s going to be a big part of my revision for me and something I want to make sure I keep up with.
USE MY FREE PERIODS PROPERLY
I went back to school today, although only for a half day and we didn’t receive our timetables. When we do receive our timetables tomorrow & I know which subjects I have and when my frees are I’m planning on giving myself at least one task to complete every free period. I know I’ll be really tempted to sit and chat to my friends but I want to try and get as much of my homework done at school so that when I’m home I can use my time to chill out or blog, which also takes up lots of my time!
DRINK MORE WATER
I’m terrible for drinking water, however this school year I’d really like to change that. While this isn’t exactly an academic goal, I need to drink water much more often. I’ve bought myself a big glass water bottle which I’ll be bringing to school with me and hopefully I can get through a couple of bottles full of water a day. I’m also hoping this is going to keep me more awake in lessons as I can already feel the toll of my 6am starts as I’m writing this post!
KEEP MY BAG ORGANISED
I always set out to a new school year with an incredibly organised school bag full of everything I could ever need, but a month or so in and my organisation is ruined, my bag becomes a mess. I’m hoping to keep my bag organised throughout the whole year & also keep it stocked with all of the random bits and bobs I always need but seem to run out of quickly!
Pin this for me!
Those are the goals I have for this year! I’m sure I’ll have more goals when I get my work back & stuff but for now this is all I’m wanting to achieve. When are you all back at school? Make sure to go check out Hannah’s blog post too.
