It’s been a long time since I sat down to write something for this blog, but my second year of medical school has finally finished! I know quite a few of you are still working through your end-of-year exams so I thought I’d put together some of the productivity advice and resources that have helped me over the years!
Okay let’s just kick this off by saying that I am just as unmotivated as everyone else – even though I have pretty much nothing better to do, I’m finding it really hard to focus and get some work done. Unfortunately, exams are still going on so that means that, like most of you guys, I still have a bunch of studying I need to get done!
Everyone says that chemistry is the hardest science at A Level and although that’s not necessarily the case, a lot of people do struggle with it so I thought I’d share some of my favourite resources and tips for each of the major topics!
I’m not an essay person (you probably knew that already though as I haven’t done an essay subject since I was 16) but I know that lots of you have to write essays for school and uni so I thought I’d put together a quick planner printable that you could use whenever you need to write one!

At least for me, exams are pretty terrifying, meaning that in the weeks running up to my exams I usually find myself stressing out and constantly thinking about the worst possible outcome. Fortunately, I’ve come up with a few strategies over the years to help reduce stress and hopefully they might be able to help a few of you out too!
I shared a picture of the document I’ve been used to track my studying in the run up to exams yesterday and a few of you said you’d be interested in trying it for yourselves so I thought I’d share it on here!
Short & sweet blog post today – I promise I’ll be posting a longer post in the next couple of weeks or so, I just have to get my mock exams out of the way first! I made this productivity tracker printable to keep track of the time I’m spending doing various things so I could see where I was wasting time, I found it pretty helpful and hopefully you will too
