    For my January exams, I did no revision because I procrastinated so much.
    I received:
    Chemistry: B
    Maths, C1: B
    English Lit and Lang: C
    Psychology: C

    I still haven't started revision, but was wondering whether it would be possible to pull my grades up if I started revising now?
    I'm retaking Psychology and English in June and planning to retake C1 and Chemistry in January next year.

    Possible? Yes
    Likely? Probably not. but it'd be better to prove me wrong than just accept what I say

    Anything's possible - stop asking people on here about it and just give it your best shot.

    Whatever we say or you think, the best thing to do is go for it and revise as much as possible!

    Its never too late to turn it all around... if you just revise as much as you and do your best you would probably get better results than if you gave up now. You have the Easter break, I'm sure that will be enough to do some major revision before you get back to school, just plan your revision time effectively. Don't give up!

    Best of luck

    I'd have to see some examples of your work- your grades are encouraging me to say no though.

    If you did NO revision whatsoever and got those grades, if you do put some work in - you have a chance. But don't mark my words, hard work is important. If you slack off, then it is really your fault. But if you do work for the next few weeks, you can pick up your reward on Results Day

    If you revise enough now, then you'll get good grades for the modules you're doing this summer. Don't do a repeat of the January exams... if you really want to do well, revise for six hours a day, six days a week for six weeks before your exams.
    Good luck
