    Got U In Biology Mock?
    If it's of any reassurance I got a U in my most recent ones too and yes, ofc it's possible to turn it around.

    Work harder.

    From today.

    Mocks do not define you.

    Nearly February now what are my chances of getting an A if I start tomorrow?
    Pretty high if you ask me, by starting hard work now, you have almost 3 months to improve. Most people don't work hard until a few weeks before the exam season (Trust me, you don't want to do this), so by starting the work now, you should be on track for an A grade. MyGCSEScience videos are now subscription based as I've heard but they're super useful for lots of people so I'd look into that, also try using the CGP books along with the official textbooks, make notes in the library along with starting practice questions/past papers closer to the exam season to get yourself used to exam technique. Good luck on your studies

    I got U's and E's in my biology mocks throughout my AS year.
    I ended up with a B in AS Biology overall.
    I'm predicted an A at A2.
    trust me, it's not impossible!
    do loads and loads of annotating on application questions.
    Recall questions, you should know, so there's no excuse there.

    So, we got our papers back and for the B3 Unit I got a U. 14/60 I think.
    4 months to turn this to an A or B
    Is that even possible?
    In year 10 i got a U in Biology.Nowadays i get A's and A*.(Science isn't my strongest subject,that is English and essays ones,however Science is my best STEM subject)

    Don't let a grade determine what others say about you.

    I got a DDC in my further additional science mock. In the real thing I got A*A*A.

    To this day I'm very confused about how I did so poorly in my mock. I put the Same effort in. ( personally I think my teacher were trying to scare me)
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
