    Is it normal to feel like if you took the exams right now you'd get a C? Or at this point should we already be hitting around our targets?

    You've still got a month or so to go, chin up! Have you done any past papers yet?

    I always feel this way, even the day before the exam. Sometimes the adrenaline kicks in once you get into the exam and it all comes flooding back because you know more than you think you do

    Right now I wouldn't even get a C, and I've been predicted 4 grades higher than that. Honestly, don't worry about it. You've got plenty of time left. But understand there is a lot of stuff to cover and it is natural for you to feel slightly overwhelmed. But take it one bit at a time and soon you'll find that everything will come together nicely. If you're taking A levels, they're called 'advanced' for a reason!

    Well the thing I'd advise is to look at specifications and mark schemes. Also, don't stress too much so long as you manage to get low A's/high B's you can do medicine
    (I got ABCC last year and have two offers for medicine, so try not to panic so much, you do better revision when you're relaxed)

    I find with a subject like Maths, things really start to come together quite late.
    E.g. I did an M1 paper last year, 2 days before the exam, and got a low D, turns out one of the ideas on there then came up on the actual paper, and I came out with 100 UMS in it :eek:

    Just keep cracking away at those review exercises and past papers for it, and it'll fall into place
