    Okay, so my gcse exams are this week and I'm stressing like mad because my parents expect me to get ALL A'S AND A*S but that is NEVER going to happen. How can I bring my Rs grade up from a D to at least a B and chemistry and physics too- In chemistry and Physics I've got a*s in the isas but the exams always let me down. How can I at least get B's in the chemistry C2 AND C1 exams(same with physics)????? HELLPPP

    This is definitely true. I remember thinking that if i don't get good grades, it would ruin my chances for a good career. Not saying GCSEs don't matter at all, just that its not make or break if your grades aren't amazing
    Good luck!!

    Currently at university, and can completely understand where you're coming from. Don't stress, and just try your best, that's all you can do. Since completing my GCSE's, I've never once been asked what they're, never once asked for proof when applying for jobs, they're pretty much there to get you a stepping stone to better things.

    Regarding your parents, they just want the best for you. If you can walk out of every exam saying "I definitely tried my best, and put sufficient work in", then that's all that matters.. It's not about your parents, it's about YOU.

    I've heard a lot that once you complete your A-levels GCSE's don't really matter but my parents honestly don't understand this. From our culture and background EVERY grade matters and every family member will know your grades before you do haha but thank you for the support, its exactly what I wanted to hear
