    Depends on if you have any coursework and if you bothered in that. Exams are easy enough after cramming revision, should be able to get at least A's

    You can do it!!! Many people can cram the night before and still come out with great grades.

    If you got those very high grades for your mocks with no revision, you can get much higher than that with some revision squeezed in.

    yes, I did my GCSEs last year and I didn't revise until the day before and I received:
    Maths (method): A*
    Maths (applied): A*
    English Lang: A
    English Lit: A
    Physics: A*
    Chem: A*
    Biology: A*
    RE: A*
    Drama: A
    Astrology: A*
    Business: A*
    ICT: A*
    Latin: A*
    Psychology: A*

    I am now happily finishing AS Levels (physics, maths/mechanics, chemistry and psychology) being predicted all As. I wouldn't risk it as it's not advisable- just do past papers
    Do you have any past resources that you used for english? Im really struggling with the literature unit 1 and 2 exam revision, did you do of mice and men and an inspector calls?

    If you honestly stay true to yourself, don't procrastinate at all and work literally the whole time productively you should easily be able to get all A*s, I'm only in year 10 but doing three exams this year and they are surprisingly easy to be frank, aiming for all A*s but realistically I will probably get an A in maybe latin and/or physics but we will see!

    Well to be honest, no, not really. But this depends on you as a person. And this also depends on the subject you are taking. And also how much info you can take in. But don't worry! Start now! You never know, you might get that A* if you try!

    GCSE's are a piece of piss compared to A levels and Uni exams

    GCSE's are about memorising the information. If you can memorise the text books in the next few days or weeks then its possible. Use the exam specifications and mark schemes to see what markers are looking for then yeah.

    ***FUTURE ADVICE***
    GCSE's are the only exams this stuff will fly with. A Levels are a whole different ball game. Start revising ASAP for them

    Of course, not something I'm risking for but it is possible to still end up well if you try really hard.

    A good start might be to actually begin revising instead of asking people on TSR.

    So using the information above I think it is safe to conclude that revising late is something every student does. It's now a fact. XD. Gl with exams all. If anything goes wrong I always have good ol' bleach :P
