    What does 'struggle' mean? From your results you probably wouldn't be predicted to get full marks on every paper but as long as you do all the work that you're set, and do enough revision in your own time then you can do well

    Well ignore your GCSE results, I think you are slightly above national average. In GCSEs you take a lot of subjects that you don't like, if you are really interested in the subjects you chose for A level then whats there to stop you from achieving AAAA?

    Everyone will struggle at a levels, regardless of what GCSEs they got. You will get good grades at a level if you really work hard, natural intelligence won't get you very far now

    Hi Luke,

    Congrats on your results!

    Honestly there is not a yes/no answer to your question. I got all As and a few A*s in my GCSE's and only one B in Music. And I did struggle with my A Levels, I absolutely did but for me that was more down to personal and family issues, I just happened to go through a lot and became distracted. I left with BBD in Geography, English Lit and Biology.


    My BEST piece of advice for you and anyone studying A Levels is "If you don't understand something ASK FOR HELP!" Either stay after class or email your teacher. Just make sure after every lesson in your subjects you understand what you have been taught. And do revision on what you've learnt at the end of each week, rather than leaving your revision till a few months before your exams.

    Stay focussed and you will do brilliantly! x
