Hi i have only got a week until my gcse mocks start.
I have tried to revise but i have been doing so much coursework and just been so busy!
Is it possible to still revise for all 15 of my exams and come out with As and A*s?
i am expected to get really high grades and am SO scared of letting everyone down.
Any advice from people who have done their gcse mocks or from as/a level students would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time!

it's never too late to learn/revise as long as you give it your all. I've got my mocks next week, and don't want to let anyone down either

It's never too late to do something. You might not get the exact grades you want but any revision will help a bit, and ultimately these are only mocks so as long as you learn from this and revise earlier for the real exams then try not to stress too much!

stop worrying, when you reach a levels that's when you should start worrying. You wont get A*s but if you manage A's and B's which I believe you can do, that should be suffice.

How much harder are a levels compared to gcses?
Are they 10 times, 100 times, 1000 times harder compared to gcses?

Haha no! I'm a third year university student but i do remember doing them back in the day 😉
Anyway, good luck! I'm sure you won't do as badly as you expect

I don't know why people are saying it's okay now - GCSEs are getting harder, more prep is needed etc, hence why mocks are so early now...I swear mocks used to be in January for many of us when we were doing GCSEs (and the most part of us were doing modular exams too, which took the pressure off).

You should get into good habits of studying now to make the workload you face later on seem not so much.

Good luck

I personally don't think it's too late to start, make sure you don't get overstessed about them! And also don't doubt yourself

Take your chemistry guide, biology guide, physics guide and maths guide and tape them all together.

What you have there is the equivalent of half a years content for ONE subject, imagine having that multiplied by 4 for the entire course PLUS the content for another TWO subjects.

Yes it is a lot harder especially because im doing physics maths history and Eng lit. The teachers rush through entire modules in a day and you expected to know everything. I study everyday yet im still none the wiser.

I started revising for mocks approximately 10 minutes before they started.

Seriously, don't fret. If anything, it's better to not revise, cuz then you know what you need to work on

Great. I have so much to look forward to next year...
I am thinking of taking physics and maths. in your opinion, are they good subjects to take?
are they harder than other a level subjects?
are they interesting? (i think gcse physics is AWFUL.)
