    I'm thinking about doing medicine so I need to get as many A*s/As as possible this year and I'm already getting very anxious. It's 73 days until my first exam and I'm currently making revision resources...

    Is there anything that you did (A/A* grade students) that you think really pushed you to get an A*? Anything you did that made you feel confident that you could comfortable get an A*?

    I'm more of an A grade student than A* so I'm going to have to work really hard, and I've already made loads of flashcards and revision materials that I hope to start to memorise when Easter comes.

    Tips specific to Maths, English and French (Listening) would be nice, but ANY tips are welcome!

    Thanks in advance.

    PS: My goal for GCSEs is 8 A*s/As and 3 Bs.

    what are your GCSEs in exactly and which ones are aiming for what grade.
    anyway, for RS I was an A grade student who had a target grade of A* but because my teacher wasn't there for half a year I bombed one of the exams and pulled out a B grade overall. My splits were an A and a C grade combining to a B. on my A grade test I rewrote all my notes from my books to condense them down to make it easier to read. Now I am doing A2 level RS Philosophy and Ethics and for the majority that technique still works
