    Hi!

    im in year 11 at secondary and we have recently received our mock results. I got A's and B's across the board however I got a D in maths with quite a lot of marks off a C. I really need a C to get into college and do subjects which I want to do (biology chemistry mainly) and I'm really stuck on what I can do, is there still time to get a C? People in my class were saying 'if you've failed the mock you might aswell give up cause you're not going to pass the final' and it's really upset me. Please help!!!! Thank you xo:confused:

    Of course there's time, if you wanted you could get an A*, GCSEs are just about spending time revising. It just takes more time for some people and less for others

    Do a couple of past papers and a bit of revision and you can easily get a C. Do A LOT of past papers and revision and there's no reason you can't get an A.

    I expect my students to improve by at least one grade so you can do this too!

    Start practising past papers every week and your marks will improve.

    there is still plenty of time don't worry, In my IGCSE mock for chemistry (which was like in march or april can't remember) i got a D... I decided to start working hard and put in all my efforts and energy after getting my mock back and after only a month or two, I ended up with an A* in the real thing! Anything is possible and your hard work will pay off
    Good luck x

    A C is definitely attainable from this position.
