    Right i'm going to be bluntly honest here because it's the internet, and in 'real life' I'd never talk like this, because let's face it that would make me a massive ****... but basically i'm not stupid. I'm one of the cleverest in my year (excuse the arrogant vibe here), but I never ever work until I really have to. I'm only a sixteen year old girl doing GCSE's, and up until now it's never been a problem to just doss it and then revise hard when it matters, so I did my mocks last week with no revision and i've got pretty much all D's, with the odd B and C here and there. well i got an A in english but doesn't really count. so I didn't think it was a massive problem until now my parents are going mental and my teachers seem vaguely concerned but just said 'as long as you work it'll be fine', but now I've started thinking, I've got like three months to learn everything. EVERYTHING. and I'm doing history, geography and economics for my options?? Realistically, if I work my socks off could I still get decent results? like straight A's and A*'s. because obviously teachers aren't going to tell you if it's possible to do that, can i have some honest answers? By working hard I mean revising nearly every night and actually doing my homework.

    Yes it's possible. Really. Especially if, as you say, you are pretty intelligent.

    You're working towards GCSE's in the summer and worrying now? I think I started revising at easter (maybe a bit before it) and I got decent results.

    If you do your work, and revise it all so you know it all before you go into the exam it's possible.
