    Doesnt hurt going for that, but its not the end of the world if you get some Cs.

    I did about 1 hours revision a day, I regret not having done more !

    And by the way, these are the mock grades I got (shows my effort factor :P )

    English Lang - C (Pred A)
    Lit - B (Pred A)
    Economics -C/D (Pred A* :eek: )
    German- C (Pred A)
    History C (Pred A*/A)
    R.E - D -46% (Pred A*/A)
    Maths - A* (Pred A*)
    Science - A*A* (Pred A*A*)
    Citizenship -A (Pred A*/A)
    ICT - B (Pred A/B)
    Media -No mock (Pred A*/A)

    All those at C/D went to an A grade, B grades stayed put though >.<

    Just stay focused, and keep it simple, most written exam mark schemes do not accept original intelligent answers, so be banal!

    It depends how much work you've put in over the 2 years. Obviously it's good to do revision as well, but if you have a good memory, you'll be surprised by how much you remember from topics you did a while ago. You've still got all of tomorrow, plus any time in between the exams, so make the best use of it. Try and work out tonight what you're going to revise and when, although you don't have to stick to it exactly. Use your mock results and the work you've done in class to see which subjects and topics you need more work on and focus on them. Don't waste your time revising things you know you can do. If you really want 8 As and 3 Bs or better, work hard to make sure you get them. I can't say whether you're being realistic or not as I don't know you, but your predicted grades should show you what you're capable of. Mine were almost exactly right, except for media (predicted a C, got a B).

    I did even less for mocks and still ended up with 4A*s in Double Science, Geo, German; 2 high As in Maths and history and 4 Bs in English lang, english lit, double ICT. I only did revision for each subject the day before each exam. so dont worry.Revision from monday is enough of time to get your desired grades.

    u said you started revision from monday. This is enough time and isnt little revision. I didnt revise much for mocks and still got A*s and As. This time with the improvement of my skills I will be able to get more of A*s and As. I havent revised much as well. You ve learnt the stuff and done loads of practice for it. So there is no way you wont be able to remember it on the exam. Just remind urself some stuff, just by readin what you have already learnt.

    You should still revise as much as you can between now and the exams to make sure, but yes, I'd say you should be able to achieve the grades you want. Work on the subjects you're predicted Bs for first(unless you've already done those exams), then As, then A*s.

    I just have to warn you, that I have been revising for a while, and I am finding it hard to revise all of History, you may not be doing the same course but there is a lot of it!
