I'm not planning on cramming for my GCSEs, but it's interesting to see if anyone did cram and still managed to do really well xD
So yeah, share your stories

I didn't do amazingly (4A*s, 5As, 2Bs) but I guess I did okay for day before revision personally, I think it's very much so possible to get all As/A*s by cramming, so I'm sure someone on here can prove that!

Crammed for about 3 GCSE exams R.S. unit 2, the Human geography paper and the French writing exam came out with A*s in all three exams, which levelled out my grades to 2As and an A* overall for those subjects. The rest of the exams I revised properly for.

For me cramming in terms of memorizing stuff I already understand is usually not too hard. However, cramming stuff I don't understand, then I would probably fail at remembering it. Personally Cramming works for me because when I study too early on in the year, I end up forgetting most of the stuff. So My tip is learn/understand in school and memorize at home. BTW this is when it comes to Alevels.

PS: For GCSEs 2 Month Cramming is enough. Some get A grades with just a day's worth of cramming because the conent is easy to understand and memorize.

Feel sorry. My school lets us take a lot early. I have 16 exams at the end and 2 AS exams (which are the ones I AM worried about).

Worried about your exams - or cautiously confident?

2 AS? Nice. What subjects?
Very, very cautiously confident xD I know I can ace my exams if I learn all this pointless crap for geography and history, but I don't want to be cocky about it and get lazy
