    I was thinking about that but the first thing is getting the grades which I'm not really capable of getting
    Why? Get off TSR and work.

    I did both of them too. I got an E in my Bio mock and a B in the IGCSE overall, literally buy a textbook and make thorough notes on every section. It's a lot of work but it pays off, I got a C in chemistry which wasn't as good but almost all our year failed IGCSE chemistry haha! Watch some vids online too should help!
    And to answer OP, I got 6As, 6Bs and a C )

    Yes you have time, as long as your revision becomes your sole focus from now on. I know that I could've gotten some A*s if I'd actually cared about my revision, and that's something I regret so make sure you put in your full effort but do remember, if you don't get the grades you want, it's not the end of the world!

    Thanks hehe! Well, if I'm totally honest I didn't revise for normal maths. For Further Maths however, I wasn't taught the course so I had to learn it myself. My revision consisted mainly of reading through the whole damn Further textbook and answering practice questions on every subject. I'm a very all or nothing kind of guy haha

    Woah how did you revise for all these?
    I just did a lot of past papers to get the exam technique right and made detailed notes covering everything in the specification for each subject. I used CGP for science and georgaphy. For languages I didn't really revise because we did a lot of revision during lessons. For maths I didn't reuse because it came naturally- I did past papers only. For subjects like English language and literature I made sure that I thought about possible alternative interpretations of a word or phrase when writing about pieces of text.

    Hoesntly, there's no tricks or secrets involved- just work hard and make detailed notes and do every single past paper. I recommend writing your notes in the style of exam answers- for example, in sciences they'll often ask fyou to explain something- make sure that when you write your notes about this concept, you write it so that it includes what the examiner is looking for- not necessarily what the enter rebook oil or your teacher told you.
