I didn't even revise for my GCSEs until 2 weeks before and I did fine. But that's just me.. And I really wouldn't reccomend that

dont worry just revise now ok? Better late than never.

dont waste any time and just start revising now because if you revise as much as you can without burning yourself out you could get more revision done in these 4 weeks than if you'd started doing a tiny bit of revision 8 weeks ago.

work hard and you'll do well

My first one's on the 5th of May and I'm feeling the same way! But still, 4 weeks is plenty of time to cram.

Time for B/C grades or a string of A*s?
I think the latter would be impossible to achieve given the time.

A month for GCSEs is ages. I revised for my exams probably a day or 2 before and ended up with 3 A*s 6 As and a B. Not that i'm suggesting you be like me but seriously, you shouldn't be worried

That's impressive given the time you managed it in. I started revising back in March but I haven't made considerable progress . Would you say it's still possible to achieve 8/9A*s?

If you've already started? Definitely. Just find a revision technique that works best for you and stick to it. Oh and make sure you do plenty of past papers if you haven't already, can't stress enough how important they are.

I'm worried now! First ones on the 5th of May. I'm worried I focused to much on art ( they think it's an A*) and I'm trying to do the rest now.
At Christmas I did the night before and got 3A*, a couples of As and the rest Bs..
since my sociology has risen to an A (Possibly an A*) maths I either get As or less than 5 marks off (i need to stablize it) and my biology I could get an A....... and in history.... but honestly I feel like it's too close and I'm not going to managed to get the grades I want. Help.

You're not screwed. Revise every day. Easter is 2 days away, if you knuckle down you'll be ahead of most of your peers (in terms of revision done) in a matter of days. There's always a few crazy people (who are actually very smart) that start revision in like, September, or something else just as ludicrous :P
