    Hi.

    So my first exam is on the 18th and right now I'm not feeling very confident but I've decided to give my everything for the next 2 weeks and see if I can still achieve the grades I want.

    I am doing History, Chemistry and German. I dropped Psychology before Easter because I couldn't cope with 4 subjects.

    I have just made my revision timetable and it's scaring me a little bit but I know I can do it if I let nothing distract me in the next 2 weeks aka One piece

    My current grades are:

    German - A (native speaking)
    History - C
    Chemistry - U

    Chemistry is worst and I'm really scared but I'm going to try my best to get a C.

    Are you guys feeling confident for your upcoming exams. Have you covered all the content?

    Maths and Further Maths I'm very confident I can get As in, possibly A*s.

    Economics I'm a bit behind with content, although about 60% of marks are about exam technique so I'm still quite confident. Hoping for an A

    Physics is tough but I've made notes and it's starting to make sense. Currently at a B, need to get an A though.

    Target : 4 A's (maths bio econ chem)
    Mocks : 4 A's (Biology was a topic test average)
    Probably: 3 A's and a U (in biology)

    Revision status: Have not started

    I really would like 3A's at the end of the year (my fourth one is the new linear spec, so I'm sitting the exam at the end of A2). I don't think this is quite realistic though

    I got ABBB in my mocks, I'm semi confident for Maths and Politics but English Lit I hate and is my weakest one... I'm yet to properly start revision ugh

    I'm feeling awful haha. My predicted grades are ABBB but I'm setting myself a target of ABBC with a C in History - my worst subject. I'd be more than happy with those grades

    Oh fair enough - I just wasn't sure if Further Maths was marked differently, etc.
    Best of luck to you!

    I'm doing History too! My mocks came out well: ABBB
    Current grade is ABBB (obviously haha - from mocks)

    What I want to get: AABB-AAAB
    I believe it's definitely achievable - I take art, maths, history and product design
    Quite confident, even if I'm not, I will still have to try my hardest

    Good luck!!

    I don't feel confident at all, I think i started revision too late compared to what i did at GCSE I want 3A'S in maths physics and computing and a B in psychology but doubt I'll get a A in computing because our teacher is absolute shite, but i suppose i have to take some of the blame for leaving revision to the last minute

    Ive covered most my content , I've left the hardest bits till last and will do that in the next 2 weeks as the information will stay in my short term memory . In terms of confidence i feel alright, i think I'm sure to get 2As but i more likely get a C subject hoping for a B.

    I know how you feel..even though my weakest is Chemistry I still really enjoy it so I don't have any difficulties revising for it but I hate History and I've left it way too late even though It's my first exam

    Good Luck hopefully we will all get the grades we want

    My predicted grades are so bad because I failed my mocks!! I'm aiming for ABB even though the B in chemistry seems kinda impossible

    Good luck getting those grades!! Hope we all make it

    Haha for GCSE I did all nighters and came out with decent grades but for A - level its impossible to cover everything in one night Good luck with computing it's really annoying when teachers are bad. I wish you all the best I'm sure you can do it
