    That's good news. The only problem is I cant force myself to revise even with short breaks.


    The hours needed are too long any advise?

    Have you done mock exams, if so what did you get in those?
    I think you can but don't put it off . Scare yourself by getting a countdown to the exams to motivate yourself to revise. Also I seem to revise best at night, so if you cant stay motivated maybe try this

    My mocks weren't too great.

    English-B
    Maths-A
    Science-C (Chemistry+ Biology)
    Business-B
    Re-A
    Geography-B
    H&SC-B


    That's a good idea thank you. I always push aside the thought of revising at night as i went to get enough sleep, so I'm not sure even though I have done it before and it seemed to work.

    They're not too bad ,I think you can still get your A/A* grades. Try and push your science up, I recommend using the syllabus for your exam board as this is where they get the questions from. Also if you're doing AQA I'd recommend myGCSEscience videos (only unit 1 is free though) and the CGP books. good luck
