    I have my AS exams in 5 weeks and i have done minimal revision. I want to come out with A's/B's and in the mocks got a B,C,and D but that was with minimal revision. Do you think if i crammed from now until my exams i still have a chance? I got 2 Bs, 6 As, and 2 A*s at GCSE so i have previously done alright throughout school but i really dont know if ive left it too late.

    No of course you haven't. Don't worry about your mock results, the fact that you didn't fail with minimal revision is pretty good.

    5 weeks is plenty of time, just make sure you don't keep leaving it too late, because the days are going to go by very quickly and you won't even realise it. Create a proper plan and try your best to stick to it. But just know, there is enough time and you CAN do it!!

    All the best!

    Theres 5 weeks you cna work hard in and get a better mark than you will now. Work hard and worry about the rest after the exams.

    plenty of time, I started revision with probably 2 weeks to go.

    Last year I revised probably the week before earliest for all my AS exams (one was the night before and some I barely even looked at the text books). It's not something I'm proud of, but I got AABC, so it can be done. But don't leave it to the week, or night, before, I wouldn't advise that because it so bad for your mental health come August!
