    I predicted all As and A*s and got 8 A*s A and 2Bs in the mocks. In the recent mocks I got an A* in English Lang,Maths,Bio,Chem, Geog and Business and A in Physics and I only do arounf 2 hrs a day is that enough

    If you are not getting the right results, do more hours, practice more papers. I wish you the best in your exams, good luck.

    Considering your results, you should be fine. However, as the exams are literally right around the corner, maybe sparing a little more time would be appropriate? Anyway, good luck to you, hope you get all the results you wish for.

    Is it enough is subjective. Are you getting the results you want? If not do more work.

    Keep in mind though that there's very little difference between getting an A*, A and B. Colleges on the whole will look at you having 5 A* to C grades. They may not care what subjects you get them in, or they may want a specific subject. Very few people, if any will really care about you getting an A instead of an A*. Or even a B. You could get all B's and still be fine. And those grades will quickly be forgotten about since GCSE's really aren't that important in the long run.

    You're getting perfectly reasonable grades at the moment. No reason not to aim as high as possible but don't fret it if you don't walk out with all A and A* grades.
