    Currently in year 13 and got my last 9 exams in a few weeks!

    I've got good AS grades, with 3/4 subjects above 90% average.
    In january i failed drastically! I literally failed :/

    I'm retaking these exams in a few weeks. Is it too ambitious to aim for 4A* grades.

    Anyone else aiming for 3/4 A* grades?

    Nothing's too ambitious, may as well aim as high as possible as it'll motivate you more. I'm currently in AS levels, but I will be aiming for 4A* next year (January AS exams got 100%-Physics, 100%-Maths, 95%-Bio, 86%- Econ, dropping, and am teaching myself AS Chemistry, which I'll also carry on to A2)

    4A* is achievable for some people but not everyone. If you literally failed your January exams (so getting Us) how do you expect to get 90%+ average in the summer?

    Yeah I get you man. I know what you mean . I got 90% plus average in 3 of my as levels. In January I don't know what happened. I think I became complacent and was focusing too much on university interviews :/
