    I want to do Physics (which I'm good at) but it's also good to take maths so I'm trying to improve in that too. On average I got a B in maths (2 marks off of an A) and it was because I'd forgot simple things (I'd revised hard topics and forgot how to do squared nth term).
    Unlucky, I guess. Just keep up the past papers because they tend to repeat themselves a lot.

    And if there is anything you don't understand, ask your teacher or post on TSR. That's really the key to getting on the good side of maths.

    5 or 6A*s is ideal i think, and you really dont want Bs, especially in Maths.

    Dude they're fine. You'll be able to get into a sixth form/college to take your A-Levels. Even with 5 C's you can get into a sixth form to do A-Levels. GCSE's really aren't that deep. You'll realise that once you get to university.
    Okay I feel a bit less stressed out now

    That is what I'm doing and I've seen a great improvement. I went from a C in December to nearly an A in March.

    Yeah honestly the stress isn't worth it. I remember freaking out about my GCSE's. I didn't do as well as you did, but now I'm almost finishing up my second year at uni and I've received at 1st in a majority of my modules thus far.
