So I had my mock results back a couple of weeks ago and its safe to say they weren't the best. I got CDDD (C in Sociology, D in English, D in Media and D in Photography) I really want to get grade B's at the least because I just want to go to a good university and a lot of the unis I want to go to have high entry requirements (ABB/AAB) :/ I appreciate getting these grades aren't easy so what would you recommend? Also I was thinking of starting to revise next week? First exam is in May. Thanks

I've been revising since February (I do math, chem, bio and psychology) and I'm just scraping B's and C's. If I were you I'd definitely start now! Its boring and tedious but just think of results day opening the envelope to find D's. I'd be devestated. I do a past paper every other day and the questions I get wrong I make flash cards for. Then I go through exercise books and make my own questions on the content then write them on flashcards. I was a shadow at Cambridge university and my mentor said she did every past paper twice and made flash cards for everything. She had straight A*s!
Best of luck with your revision!

I didn't give a flying fack about my A-levels in year 12 and got all C's, then in year 13 I enjoyed them far more and started focusing from the start, but what really did it was that I started revising in January/February and worked damn hard and did some resists too, came out with ABB and going to a much better uni than I would have been able to before. On a gap year because I applied for crap unis before and then got my results and realised I can go to russell group unis instead

I'm very much aware of that, but I'm telling him what I personally did. If he starts revising now then he should be ok
