    Thanks man your progress has motivated me to study to get those As at GCSE. Currently at Cs.
    I have a month to go!
    those A*s you mean , a month is a lot of time for GCSEs I wish I would have spent a month instead of revising the day before the exam

    It's a trap. I remember when I thought I covered all the content in d1 maths in a week. Never have I been so wrong. Let's just say I got an A in both c1 and c2 yet I still got a C overall.


    Theres a difference between reading and covering content.
    I haven't just read the content. I have made flashcards, memorised them and done past papers which are essentially simulations of what I am going to face in the exam hall so I think they are a good gauge of where I am

    Different students have different abilities, someone could be working very hard and only get a C or B. Also there is the issue of performance under exam conditions. A2 is going to be challenging and you may want to change your view/approach otherwise you may end up in the same situation as now. Wish you the best and just keep working hard.
    That is true, and thank you I hope I do

    24/04/16:
    Chemistry: D
    Maths: D
    Physics: D
    Biology: D

    Update:
    28/04/16

    Chemistry:B
    Maths:B
    Physics:B
    Biology D

    Managed to cover all the content for three subjects in the last four days or so and did some papers, just guess I need to refine my exam technique and do more papers and make a start on biology
    Hey, that's so possible it's almost synonymous to easy. Exams are only hard if you know what to do & a D grade is what you knew when you took the exam, not what you know now let alone what you'll know in a month's time.
    You can definitely do it and if you revise in a way you know has worked for you (or one you believe will work for you and stick to it) you'll be able to get the As that you want; no problem.

    I believe in you

    Exactly! Thanks a lot man, I appreciate it. The only problem I face is that I have only covered half of the biology course and I know I'll cover it all in time but I don't whether it will stick in my head in the exam and I don't think I have enough time to go over it twice But I am doing past paper questions for topics I've done so far and I have got As in them(covered loads today)

    D1 can easily be covered in a couple of days. I had lessons on it from October till December then did no work for it until 2 to 3 days before the exam. Then I did a few of days of light revision. I got 93. You could realistically do it in a day or less. People often joke about covering it on the bus on the morning of the exam and it's not a big exaggeration.

    what about going from a C to an A in C2? I know it's easy to but how long you reckon?

    It really depends how much you work etc. and the reasons that you're not getting an A now.

    It depends how much time you put in, but maybe a couple of weeks.

    You should do further maths for physics or engineering.

    You've given me hope because I haven't looked at it in literally a year but I'm retaking. I still remember all the sorting algorithms, bin packing and linear programming. I'll need to find time to revise for it before my exam
