It depends what course you're applying to; If you're looking at going to Oxbridge or studying medicine you need to at least have average or above average grades for that subject

Otherwise as long as you have above C or B's in your English and maths (at most universities) you should be okay.

Oohhh okay, thank you!
I was thinking Oxbridge at one point but I've gone really down hill. But you never know, hopefully i'll be able to sort myself out in time to at least get average grades then.

The average for medicine is something ridiculous like 6-11 A*'s
A month is plenty of time if you do it right

Ok let's get this sorted, first of all calm down and breathe
You will be ok my dear.
If this was A level then I would agree and say yea pretty much but as it's GCSEs know it is not too late. First what subjects are you doing at GCSE, do any have coursework, if so would you mind saying their predicted grades or actual grades if they have any. Would you mind stating your career goals also. Don't worry, this isn't all random- knowing this will help me understand what kind of situation you're in.

Predicted grades:
Maths B
Double Science AA
Geography A*
History A*
English Lit A*
English Lan A*
RE A*
Italian A*

Mock results (from last month):
Maths D
Double Science CC
Geography B
History A
English Lit B
English Lan A
RE B
Italian A*

I'm not really sure on career options yet, plan for A-Levels is:
Italian
History
Geography
Philosophy and Ethics

I just know that I really want to get to a top university for Italian (possibly joint honours degree with another subject, maybe a new language)

I think I'm panicking because I have so much to live up to with my predicted grades!

Just work hard, use your time intelligently and do your best. worry or do what you like after. Study not worrying will get you extra marks.

Oh, then you should be ok
-With the subjects you feel most comfortable with just begin doing past papers. This will tell you the areas you need to work on then anything your stuck on email your teacher or ask them at school. Working on past papers is the best method as this is what you'll be dealing with in your real exam. Trust me, I know people who just did past papers a few weeks before their GCSE exam for maths without any notes etc on formulas but came out with an A*.
If you haven't finished your notes, start finishing them off but do so productively. Make flashcards and look at them everyday because at this point you'll have to cram a little. For English Mr.Bruff saved me. I know I shouldn't say this but he does predictions each year on questions he believes will come up. This is what got me that B grade in the exam. I watched the video in the morning as well, not even the night before. If you can review your notes.
-At the end of the day, if things don't go to plan it's perfectly ok.
I know students who didn't have the best GCSEs but smashed their A levels, then went to top, Russell group universities such as UCL, Durham and even Cambridge. Our head girl at my previous sixth form had ok GCSEs (3 As, 3 Bs and the rest Cs) but did well at AS, had a great personal statement, did well in her interview and I believe she had to do an entry exam- not sure but I'm assuming she did since it's law. Overall once she entered year 12, she became very focused and finished with A*A*AA. So it's not impossible.
