    Take a deep breath. Today is what? 30th of October. So we're just starting November. We're still ages away from May & June.

    What can you do now? Prioritise your learning. Organise yourself and look at the topics you want to study first. Study these topics thoroughly.

    Remember. There are 24 hours in a day and it's up to you to make the most of it.

    Process, digest and assimilate all the information you need. Understand it. Then when Christmas comes by, go through it again. Sear it into your mind.

    After that, when Easter comes around you're going to be able to easily do some final revision with the odd paper or two.
    When you put it like that it doesn't sound too bad. I tend to get quite anxious about exams I just panic and become less productive. I'm going to follow your advice and try to get more work done now so I feel like I'm on top of things.

    Thanks!

    Updated. Once your name is on the list, there's no going back. You have to achieve this target you set yourself.

    It is imperative that you do so.

    I just re-read the OP; it said for this year's results day. I thought it was for the whole A-Level, but since I'm only at AS at the moment could you change it to AAAA please?

    Thanks in advance c:

    Egad! Having seen M0nkey Thunder's post above and checking the OP again, could I also change my targets? Whilst I'd be happy to achieve those grades next year, for this year's round of exams the most I can/want to achieve is A*AAA! (The A* being the EPQ)
    I'd rather not set myself too impossible targets

    Predicted A*A*A (+A* in EPQ) which is ridiculously high but it would be nice

    Preferably A*s in History and English Lit since they're my favourite subjects and I got high UMS last year, but History has been ridiculous this year with the coursework Can only lose 2 marks if I want an A* in it!

    A in Politics would be good but U.S. Politics bores me and I got lower than I wanted last year :/ bad teachers don't help either

    And the EPQ doesn't really matter, none of my unis require it so I'll just do what I want with it lol

    Anybody else doing Edexcel History or Politics, or AQA Lit?

    A*A*A*(+A* in EPQ)

    Realistically A*A*A (+A in EPQ), with the A*s in Chemistry and Biology. An A* in Maths would be such a gift
