Recently got my mock results back and based of them, I’m predicted a couple of As, a lot of Bs and a few Cs for GCSE. I REALLY want ALL A*s. Possible if i start revision just 4 months before the actual exams or is it too late? Am i aiming too high compared to the amount of time i have got left?

ps: i didnt revise for the mocks...
AND by revison, i dont mean PROPER revision of everything ive learnt because there are some concepts i dont understand and some i havent covered in class

lol, made a couple of typos. sorry

Wow. You'll burn out. I'd have though 1/2 months would be more than enough.

why dont you start revising now?
the earlier you start the better, and once you have covered everything, you recap it again and again until it sticks in your mind.

It depends on why you're predicted low grades, really.

Revise during your study leave.

It's what I did and I got nice grades.

Cos he didn't revise for mocks and they were based on that.

Which tbh aren't bad grades for no revision.

...because i didnt revise. I was occupied with coursework (which i think mattered more) but im not a straight A* student... All my coursework is A*/A but the amount of time left is getting me panicky..

4 months is far too much! A week or two before the exam should be enough - I say this with 7 A*s, 4 As and a B.

Saying "lols I did night before only and I was fine!!!!1111" is a bit pointless. the OP specifically says he isn't naturally an A* student, so will need extra work to achieve those grades. Doing too much revision is ALWAYS better than doing too little.

Dude, if you've got good quality notes, 1-2 weeks is enough!
