My predicted grades are 1A, 4Bs and 3Cs. I just started revising yesterday (thursday) and my exams starts on the 13th of May. I will start going to a tuition center next week that will help me with struggling subjects. Is it still possible for me to get above a C in my GCSEs or even As and A*s?

It's not impossible but you need to be disciplined and work hard. Lots of use of past papers will give you confidence in what to expect in the actual exam and allocate specific revision time and use it effectively.
Going to a tuition centre is a good start as they'll help you but you need to not waste time when you are there and make use of your teachers too!

It's always a confidence boost if you do get a better grade than the teacher predicted! Good luck to you

Yes. I didn't start revising until the Wednesday before (my exams started on a Monday). I think this is very early to begin revising.. Especially as you are doing 7 GCSEs.

You obviously want to do well though. I'm sure if you start revision now you will

Yes. My very experienced teachers who taught over 20 years at my current school always say that your grades can be two grade above your predicted grades between mock exams and real ones.

Good luck! Mine is starting on 6th of May... Let's do it!

It's definitely possible. I didn't do any revision at all until the Easter holidays.

That's what the lady at the tutorial center said as well. She said I can get at least an A with a predicted grade of B.
