“If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.”

The image for today’s blog has a quote that I have often, in my life, ignored.

And I spent a lot of time ending up a long way from that goal inside my heart.

If you know that you want that great science grade, if you know how that would make you feel, then you need to build yourself a map on how to get there.

Small steps, small markers, that keep you on track.

You might see that goal in the distance, thinking you will magically end up there. Maybe if you just want it enough, it will happen!?

Unfortunately, this approach doesn’t work. If you simply drift forwards, hoping for a miracle, or hoping someone will push you there in a shopping trolley, you might just drift in their direction, or be turned back completely.

Also, if you don’t know what to look out for on the way how will you even know you are lost?

You don’t have to hand forge the road or paint the signs. It is about working smarter, not harder.

Ask someone who has already made it to the end. They will help to show you the right path to take, to guide you on your way.

Nobody expects you to do this alone. How could you do this alone?

Also, don’t fall into the trap of thinking that those around you are magically floating to those top grades either. Trust me whether they know it or not, they have already started to put in those small markers towards the end.

Some of us just need a bit more help to find the way. But, once you arrive the achievement is no less genuine.


So have a think about what it is you want from your Science GCSE. You have to take the exam and carry that grade, after all.

Maybe ask someone, who has already been on the journey, how they got to the end. What did they do to get there? What worked, what didn’t?

A great place to find answers is over in the Pass My Physics Exam community.
