    You should be fine then, start in March.

    If you are in AS (and want to apply to Cambridge/Imperial/LSE or other unis like that) then getting a high UMS average is very important, for example most Cambridge students had a UMS average of 95% at AS.

    Don't be too complacent - there's a lot of work still to cover before the 'real exams'. Plan out revision to cover all past papers and start working through those now.

    Cambridge doesn't care about GCSEs that much. Getting really high UMS will make your life a lot easier next year and UCAS will be a breeze since everyone will want you.

    By what you got for your mocks, you seem smart. I would urge you to put in the effort and it will pay off big time. Hard Work + Intelligence is a combo which is hard to beat

    As for starting in march, I would suggest you start now however you don't need to go overboard. Start making notes for Economics / History / G&P , utilising the specification is good since it really allows you to make sure you know anything and everything that they can examine you on. In my opinion if you do about 1 - 2 hours of work a night from here to March you will increase your grades by a significant amount, you will also need to cram less.

    If you want any advice you can PM me anytime.
