    You can easily raise up from a C in maths. I was sh*t at maths since year 7. I struggled on all the basic arithmetic stuff since year 9. But I did take an interest in algebra. What i'm saying is, I was a C in the beginning of year 10, but now at a high A which is ok., but I barely did much practice at home, just listened in class and did the homework. Just watch these

    Wow, thats alot of subjects. You said that you copied notes up, did you use mind maps for all the subjects?
    Btw i forgot to mention we did 6 GCSE's in year 10 and the rest in year 11.

    Besides English, Languages and Citizenship, yeah.

    For Languages, I just made flashcards with all the vocab on them (ot worked for French) . For English, I read the book, the poems and the short stories and independently analysed them (i found that I remembered it better that way) and made character profiles for the book and matched the quotes to the characters. Don't bother memorising quotes though, as long as you know the book, it's fine. For citizenship, I made flashcards.

    I don't think you're quite grasping how big the step is from GCSE to A Level - there's a reason most colleges say you have to have gotten at least an A in GCSE Maths to carry it on - I think you're being quote unrealistic with your hopes to do A level Maths.
