    I have turned my GCSE grades around particularly for German and maths.

    In maths i got a C when in mocks i will be failing and in German i was 3 marks away from a B overall when in mocks i got E's.

    Of course you can! When I first started chemistry I got an E, 2 months after that. I've been getting straight A's! And that goes for all my subjects. I'm not trying to boast, but make you see it's doable if you work really hard! And never be afraid to ask for help! Here if you ever need anything!

    What do you want to do after your GCSE's? If you do well enough, could you get a C in science, might help dpending on what you want to do after 6th form/college. i'd say work hard and you could get the D's up to a C assuming a C is possible on the Science papers you're doing. Do well in Business Studies & it maybe possible to get a C in that depending on what % of the grade each unit is. If Computer Science is top end of E then you could possibly get that up to bottom end of C if you do well in everything from now on.

    All you can do is your best, ask your teachers for help with areas you're finding hard. talk to other students to see what they're finding hard & help each other during revision.

    Absolutely.
    As long as you dont fool yourself and procrastinate. If you really work its more than enough time.
    I was getting D's and E's in my AS level progress tests, i was sleep deprived and unmotivated.
    But by the time it came to study leave i went to the library and worked fo 5 or 6 hours every day and managed to turn 2 of those around to A's.
    Just stay calm and put the work in. Eventually it will become easy

    Go to college. Get an HNC. Then apply to university. Better yet, and unless you are taking a vocational degree, don't compete with 20 million graduates for a position on the Asda graduate management programme - learn a skill, go to a coding bootcamp, take Prince2, take a qualification from CIM; university is a joke...numerous surveys have shown how deluded recent graduates are and what universities manufacture, i.e., 1 in 6 graduates expect to earn £100k per year before they turn 30.

    Do something someone actually wants to hire you for - build an actual skillset, be someone worth hiring. Be something more than 'I'm organised', 'I was vice-president of my organic food society' and 'I'm a great communicator.' Don't spend 4 years in an economic black hole learning next to nothing which will be applicable throughout the course of your life other than how to extend your adolescence beyond the age of 22.

    Yes, you will have to do many hours of extra work every day though.

    Most definitely. Don't forget, that is what mocks are for; to test what you already know and to allow you to understand what you need to improve on. If you start now, I'm positive that you will do very well. Also, if you are doing higher for most of your GCSE's, that shows you that you are capable of achieving great results, you just have to put the effort in.
    For me (and the majority of my friends), I am re-writing all of my notes and revision cards, and then proceeding to learn them all over the February half-term holiday up until the end of the exams.

    As for other revision methods, make sure you do LOTS of past papers for all of your subjects; those help a lot

    Good luck!!
