The Year 11s had their Maths PPEs last week and I would say that it is helping me to become more prepared for the real exams.
I believe that there are other PPEs that will happen so I hope to be prepared and ready for them so I can get good grades in them.
I have been going to revision a lot and to be honest it has helped me to be more confident and ready for my real exams so I will not struggle on any questions at all in the exams I am going to take in May and June - which are very close.
I am going to be 100% ready and prepared for my PPEs and real exams so things don't become hard for me.
Stay tuned for more updates.

It's me again with a new update. It has been half term for all of us last week and I hope it has been good for everyone. During the half term, on Monday there was Maths revision and Wednesday was Science revision for year 11s. I attended both sessions last week so I can get extra support. After I have finished both of them, it helped me to know the topics that I need to work hardest on. I'm also revising a lot in my own time for my exams. So, we are back to school again and I hope it is going to be good until the Easter holiday.

"Hello my name is Simon and this is my intro for my blog.
I am doing this blog for my Duke of Edinburgh's Award (D of E) as part of my Skills Section for journalism.
The reason I am doing my D of E award is so I can go to university in the future and they will see I have achieved a D of E Award on my UCAS form.
Finally, the reason why I want to do Journalism is because I am interested in news and current affairs, I like discussing events in the news and reading more about what is happening.
Year 11 can be a challenging year - I've had my PPEs and I'm preparing for my real exams and attending revision classes after school on Mondays and Tuesdays. I have been doing my best to go through it all as I really want to be successful in the future and I have to work hard for it to happen.
So there we have it - my first entry on my blog. Stay tuned for more updates."
