    hey guys i have bin a bad student for the start of year 10 to now (3 months before my exams) i do not know any of the information for most of my subjects that require alot of memory like psychology, is it possible to get up to A grade standard form knowing nothing lol i know my grammer and spelling is **** but i in a panic so sorry.

    CALM THE **** DOWN, SON.

    You've got a long time until your exams. Chill the **** out, and prioritise - what subjects are most important to you? What exams do you have a reasonable idea you can blag? How did you mocks go vs the grades you want? Then you should start revising and learning - flash cards are good for memorising things, but you should practice mock papers. You can get the grades up, you just have to relax and work.

    hey, no need to worry.

    my science teachers are crap, honestly. but i have still managed to get 1 mark off of an A in my year 10 exam (i've re-taken two and i hope i'll get that A)

    i would start revising now.

    i know that it sounds stupid, but it really does work. make notes, make posters, revise on line, record yourself saying the information, anything!

    also, if you start now, then you have loads of time to ask any teachers about stuff that you don't get.

    make a revision timetable, and stick to it!

    but you won't get that A unless you work really really hard for it!

    good luck.


    Start during easter
