    With the sudden realisation that my exams are about two months away, I have done zilch revision, and most of the tests I have done for my subjects I have got a U.
    I need to scratch this back AND get decent grades, what are your tips.
    Also, anybody in the same position as me last year and achieved good results? I need inspiration/ hope

    **** happens. Just start..

    You'll be absolutely fine, particularly if it's just GCSE's. Work your arse off and you'll get what you need.

    It's never too late to start revising! There's hope!
    A good place to start would be those tests, see where you went wrong, prioritise the subjects you really don't know and go from there!
    Also, try and do as many past papers as you can. Making sure you keep track of your progress and revise the weaker areas for the next one!
    Good Luck!

    hey! do you use the app Quizlet? / memrise is also good but you have to pay for subscription
    I've discovered its been a life saver regarding key terminology and theories etc. plus there's a feature of flashcards which you can use on your phone/tablet etc. And I don't need to make any flashcards now b/c there's also this feature where there a public sets of terminology for specific A Level subjects so if you wanted to learn say biology terminology you could type into quizlet, AQA a level biology and key terms would come up and you can use it.
    Also use past papers , I looked on the AQA website for sociology, and the papers are COMPLETELY different style from what the teacher has been giving us in class...
