    I took my GCSEs in 2005, but my target grades were 9 A* and 1A. I achieved 10 A* grades.

    My school says 8A*s and 4As. I'd like to raise one or two of those A grades, but i'll still be happy with those on results day if i don't.

    In my mocks I got 2A*, 6A and 2B with no revision... I've revised loads for these exams now so I'm hoping for maybe 4A* 6A

    English Language: A
    Maths: A*
    Further Maths: A/B
    ICT: 2 Cs, CBA to get higher

    Additional Science: A, maybe an A*
    Core Science: I already have an A
    Citizenship 1/2: A*, don't really care if I get an A

    Well my predictions have gone up recently to 1A*, 7A's and 4 B's which I don't think is going to happen... probably more likely 8B's and 4A's. I feel quite stupid really because there are so many people on TSR who have got/are getting straight A/A*s!

    My mocks I got:
    English Lang:A*
    English Lit:A*
    French:A*
    Physics:A*
    Maths:A
    Geography:A
    Spanish:A
    Chemistry: A (1% off A*)
    Biology: A
    RS: B =[

    Interestingly, my only grade that is predicted A and not A* is Physics!
    Aiming for all A*s, doing Geography, Maths, Politics and Economics. Need 6 Bs to go to my new school as my current one got rid of Economics because only 11% were As last year. Boarding school, here I come!

    Anyone else in a procrastinating mood? I'm meant to be studying collision theory but somehow have had enough for today. Still have falling objects in physics to do and animal and plant cells.

    Meanwhile, it is a lovely sunny day outside. Come to think of it, I haven't been outside for 4 days! x

    The targets my teachers have given me are straight A*'s and in my mocks I got 8 A* and 4 A (one of which was in Additional Maths where A is the highest) And I've already got 2A* and 1 A.
    I'm hoping I can raise the A I got in Russian to an A* but I'm happy with the A's I got in English Lang and Lit.

    Lol... I must be under achieving as everyone here seems to be aiming A*A*A*A*A*A*A**A* ect ect, and I am only hoping for 5A* and 3As, or 4A* and 4As at the most, though two of those A* are BTECs so in theory, only 6A-A*.

    I'd love to share my advice on how I got them, but honestly I have no tricks. I hardly did any revision for my mocks (actually for my history exam the only revision I did do was on the way home from London at about 9pm the night before and then right before the exam my friend told me that she'd got a life threatening illness).

    All I can say is try not to worry too much, be confident in your abilities and just tell yourself that you'll do the best that you can do. That's what I try to do.

    English is really hard to get an A* in. I do OCR and in each essay you need to get at least 28 out of 30 for it to be A* and it can be very personal-opinion based when marked. I got 27 in my mock which was an A but my English teacher put an A* on my report because that's what I deserved. But I don't see how I can improve. That's why I'm more than happy with an A in the subject.

    I think I will get all A*s apart from perhaps 2 As in English which I will be extremely happy with
