    I started revision a couple of days before each exam and got 4A*s 5As and 2Bs. Should have started earlier as although my results are fine, I was capable of better

    I didn't revise at all and got excluded from high school twice. Internal exclusive for three days too and kicked out of one subject - graphics technology, I got a D in that in the end. Everything else I got Bs, except maths and religious studies which I got As in.

    I usually revise so much better when I'm stressed and under pressure. I've revised a couple of days before for university exams and they've still gone well, it just seems to work for me! I just write notes over and over really quickly until I can remember them, so I'll revise from early in the morning until the evening with only a couple of breaks my short term memory is great but my long term...not so much.

    Obviously some people work far better with more time in advance and I guess that's more sensible. I'm working on doing this for my summer exams

    I started my revision about a 1-1.5 months prior to my exams and achieved 4As + 6Bs.
    Yes, I know I don't live up to the standard of TSR.

    GCSE's don't mean anything in the long run, it just shows how well you performed at x day
    Imo, there are too many variables to compare and contrast people.

    Just be yourself and do the best you can, that's all that matters in the end.

    Note to self: Don't go on a Call of duty marathon the week before your exams.
