    When are you going to be taking these exams - in November 2015, or in June 2016 or later?

    Schools usually prefer their candidates to achieve C or above, and offer extra tuition etc. Is your school providing extra support?

    Have you been entered for Foundation Tier or Higher Tier? AQA say this about Higher Tier marking:
    "On individual units there is a small ‘safety net’ forcandidates who fail to reach the minimum markrequired for the lowest grade available in the tier.For example, on Unit 1 a candidate entered for theHigher tier (grade range A*– D) who just fails to reachthe standard required for grade D does not obtainzero uniform marks. However, centres should notethat such a candidate will normally receive feweruniform marks than a Foundation tier candidate whoreaches the same standard"

    Are you sure you can't get your grades up?

    Some colleges will let you retake your GCSE if you didn't get the grades you needed, look into that.

    That's good, so you have plenty of time to work on some key aspects to get the grade you need. Where does the F grade prediction come from? Sometimes teachers start marking to the GCSE standard early so that you get a feel for the work that still needs to be done, and most people improve by at least a grade over the next six months. Try and get someone to go through with you, in depth, a couple of your recent pieces of work, and see if you can together pick out some repeated problem areas that could be easily turned round to get you extra marks next time - a teacher in the subject would be best, but supportive family/friends willing to spend the time can work very well too. Keep trying and good luck!

    You'll definitely only get E/F with that sort of attitude.
