I've been working really hard to get myself a highest grade and all I've ever gotten was Cs and rarely Bs. Would I be able to get an A in 2 months if I work hard? I've started revising already but I've been struggling with C2 and P2 so I would need to go over everything everyday. Anyone who has a grade A already can you please share what you did just so I could do the same. Thankyou

In GCSE it's all about how you answer your questions. If you are just regurgitating information from books you will be looking at a low grade, however if you can describe things in scientific terms you will be looking at higher grades. The key to achieving in your exams is understanding the principles involved in the subjects and learning how they link together. For example knowing about the limiting factors of photosynthesis experiments (such as sunlight) is one thing, being able to explain why these limit the rate of photosynthesis is another.

I seriously advise looking at past papers, answering the questions and then looking at the marks schemes. You need to identify which marks you are missing out on. If you are missing marks through lack of understanding then you will have a lot of work ahead trying to learn the science. However, you may find you are only missing some exam skills (like the linking example above) if this is the case you should be able to train your grade up with relative ease.
