6 Study Help Websites

Now, I know this isn't a blog about studying, its about books and writing, but I believe studying is somewhat involved in both those things. This may be the most serious post I've ever made on this blog, but please bear with me. 
My exams are coming up, so I decided to share my top 6 study websites that I use. 
Keep in mind, I am a GCE O'Level student, so these may be more useful for O'level students, but I think everyone can use these nevertheless. 

1. GCE Study Buddy

This website is probably the most useful one for me. It provides study notes, summarized and made into easy-to-understand formats, with mindmaps, and questions.

2. My Study Life

This is a website I'm sure many of you can use. It's like a paper planner, except it …

My wattpad account may not be as interesting as this blog (not like this blog is that interesting, but hey, a little self promotion never hurt anyone), but it would mean a lot to me if you guys would check it out nevertheless.

I've written a few stories, and I'm working on my novel, When The Little One Speaks, so I can use all the support I get. Thank you so much. 
Keep writing :)

The Kite Runner is a moving story about the friendship between two boys, the hardships one has to face, regrets, love, and redemption.  There is Amir, a rich boy with all the luxury one can have in life, and there is Hassan, the servant boy in Amir's household, living in a mere broken down shack behind Amir's mansion. These two boys have a strong bond. Hassan is willing to do anything for Amir. One day, this loyalty Hassan has for Amir changes both their lives.  It is so touching, so moving. I can't even exaggerate with this book. I have read Hosseini's 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' as well (review on that coming soon), but personally, Kite Runner is the champion. None of Hosseini's other books can beat the position this book has in my heart.  The writing style, the plot line, everything is so perf…
