I don't know what additional information to include in this post; but below is the main reason for this thread, and here it goes:

Do I have any chance of succeeding in my GCSEs, say, if I were to start revision tomorrow?

Bearing in mind my first exam is on the 16th - and I did absolutely terrible in my mocks by scraping Ds/Cs and an occasional B at my highest grade, since I was not in the least bit prepared for them (procrastination is a major flaw of mine which I'm sure many of you can relate to.) And on a side-note my predicted grades are borderline/semi-decent at best.

So yeah, I need some inspirational/brusque/pragmatic responses

Well, if people say you've left it too late what are you going to do then?

The best thing you can do now is revise starting from tomorrow up until your exams.

4+ hours a day.

Write like that in your English Lang exams and you'll be on your way to getting an A. Start tomorrow and don't panic!

Yesssssss even tomorrow's a good start! Try do atleast 1 or 2 hours of intensive revision a day and IM SURE you will get higher then a B. Remember GCSE's are really not hard at all, all they are is memorizing + a little common sense. GOOD LUCK

Some is better than none when it comes to revision just do what u can and make it efficient in the run up to the exams obviously put the closest exams first but don't over prioritise and forget about the later exams else you'll do better in the beginning, worse towards the end and finish exams season feeling as if you failed

I highly doubt that since I'm being quite pretentious atm. Not only because of this reason, but I also lack knowledge of the content, technique, structure and so forth, etc.

Plus, when me, pen and paper come together; a third-person perspective would have the impulse to think I was writing in a foreign language because my handwriting is dire and makes me look illiterate.

Do you make your own notes, or do you just read out the revisionbook/textbook?

You already must know the best you can do is to start revision as soon as possible and do as much as you can in the time you've got.
To be honest I could have done more work than I've been doing already, so I'm trying to make up for that. (well, I say that, I'm getting distracted now by being on here lmfao)

Think of it this way, if you revise now, you will get good grades and also have 2 months after your exams to party. :woo:

Why do you need someone else to post a written text to motivate you to revise? Why can't you just pull yourself together and get down to work?

Guess you can - definitely. Providing you revise well from now on. Don't start out with a can't do attitude - just give it your best from now on

It's GCSEs, you should be fine. I revised about 2 weeks for them and ended up with an A*, 3 As and the rest were Bs. Oh and I got a C.

GCSEs really aren't that hard. If you're smart enough, 2 weeks should be more than enough revision time.

You'll do better if you start today than if you don't do any- I believe that if you really pick your heels up and maybe aim for around 6 hours a day anything's possible; you could come out with all As and A*s all this means is that you'll have to do more hours a day to maximise your potential.
