    Lool, we all get what we put in. If you want a better grade, only you can make that happen. Sounds harsh, i know but thats how it is my friend. Life is harsh.

    Made a revision timetable, starting Tuesday until my last exam in June. Haven't started any individual revision yet but we've been doing past papers and going over stuff in lessons. Luckily I have one friend who does the same subjects as me so we always get a bit of revision in during our frees

    Its got a bit of luck as well, considering you can only loose about 5 marks out of a paper that has 75 marks in it to get an A* in a maths paper you can put in all the work in the world but flopping 1 question out of about 24 stops you getting an A*

    I wouldnt agree thats luck though. You can only 'flop' a question if you havent best prepared yourself for it. I guess, theres only so much we can intake too its crazy how one exm, one question judges us on a whole years work.

    You can prepare all you want and probably 99/100days you would get the question right but on the day you just cant notice it. Also some essay based subjects are very subjective and ambiguous like business which drives me nuts.
