    is it too late now to get a good grade in the a level exams, I really need some motivation because even my parents are putting me down

    I am in the same situation as you there my friend !
    Luckily, we have 2 weeks where we can have some intensive revision and hopefully improve our grades.
    DO : Create a list of goals that you wish to achieve by the end of the Easter holidays
    DO : Complete a past paper, pick out areas where you can improve and create a flash card for it. Few days later complete a question on this area again and see if you understand it now. Seeing this improvement can often motivate people.
    DO : Think about the reward ! Imagine exceeding all your target grades and getting into your chosen uni

    DO NOT : Read, highlight and copy out pages and pages from a textbook, this is passive revision and you will not remember it
    DO NOT : Sit there all Easter thinking about your A2's (easier said than done, i know) as this will only worry you. Actually get started which is the hardest part about any revision.

    Remember, despite you having exams just weeks after you go back, take a break and give your mind a rest.
    Hope this helps,

    I absolutely agree, stay in a positive mindset and have a structured plan of what you want to cover every day. Try your best to meet your targets and make sure you are understanding..
    Work hard, i'm sure you'll get what you need.
    All the best x
