Firstly, and most importantly, I have to check my blog links every day. At the beginning of the day and at the end of the day. I must also comment on other blogs where this is relevant.
Secndly I am starting with OCR Economicss by Bamford but as I am doing A2 then I will also support what I read with the other two textbooks.
My plan is:
Finish chapter 1 by 8 October.
Chapter 2 by 13 October
Chapter 3 by 1 November. (This is a harder chapter as it is also part of A2 so i want to make sure that I understand everything in it.)
Chapter 4 by 10 November
Chapter 5 by 14 November
Chapter 6 by 1 December
Maybe I won't keep to this but this is the plan. I will also be doing regular mock exams (in my own time - probably on Sunday.) Chris is giving me a weekly test in a sealed envelope and I do this to time (my first tutorial was this morning and I do the test this evening. It's basic apparently as I am only just beginning.)
I am going to do my exams at Greene's College - the closing date is here. If I have not made up my mind about this I can always enter as late entry - it's expensive but it gives me more flexibility.
I am not sure whether to do A2 in January - this would give me experience but maybe my grade would be low. I may enter anyway and if I decide not to do it then I simply will withdraw. At least by entering I will keep my options open!
Probably the most important document I have is the OCR syllabus. I am spending this afternoon looking round the OCR website as by learning about the syllabus and the site I can be better prepared.
So - by the end of today:
a. revise my initial notes
b. do my first ever mock!
c. read through the syllabus
d. try and skim read various chapters
e. download and learn the mmap programme
