    There is definitely time to improve. I know lotss of people who got Ds, Es and U grades in their mocks (so around January) and by August the same people would come out with and Bs-or generally marks a lot higher than the level they were at few months prior to exam season. I did all my revision in June/end of May (because I need intense pressure to study) and somehow came out with A*AAA (being half a mark off an A* in all the subjects I got As in- arrghh! Just my luck eh😭😣 ah well, nvm)
    So never give up. Alevels aren't as bad as some people make out ! You need to find what works for you and remember there's no magical pill. We all work differently I guess, some people find they need to start early, others need that intense pressure of exams being round the corner, so find what works for you and stick to it. Good luck! 😊😊
