    Tbh, I think what he says is achievable. I got majority A's, couple A*'s (and C's in English lol...) with no revision in my mocks. However mocks were only on one or two units each so I doubt that Op would be able to remember everything from every unit.
    The main point is, if you can get B's+ without revision, why wouldn't you revise and get A*'s :beard:?? You're just making life further down the road a lot more difficult :erm:

    To be fair, many people don't revise for their GCSEs and still get good grades.

    I hate English more than I hate brainhuman. It's just dog s**t.

    For nat 5 I didn't know how to write an essay so just rammed in quotes which didn't make sense. For Higher you cannot do that so I memorised a truckload f stuff.

    I mean, about 35 quotes for me to learn for only 6 marks is just mad. You only get 6 marks for other!

    We may have to stop talking hahaha. I hate English and everything to do with it. I have actually said before I hate people who like English ahahahahahahahaha

    IT'S FUNNY THAT MOST OF YOU ARE VULNERABLE ENOUGH TO BELIEVE THIS; OF COURSE I'M REVISING, WHY WOULDN'T I?

    P.S. To those of you who actually aren't revising, I feel for you... GOOD LUCK IN LIFE!
