    I am currently in year11 and lets just say i am not naturally intelligent in academic school life. (I wish I was) therefore I have started revising from September because I really want A's or A*'s. I have done nearly all my notes for all science's now and making a progress on other subjects (note wise) . And I've done a bunch of questions for maths preparing for my end of unit tests. I've got half of my non calc test back and the mark was so low, I was so disappointed. I feel like I've done revision for nothing, I also do not want to be doing the foundation paper. PLEASE help in ways I could improve in revison or if I'm just paranoid. Thanks in advance. Also I am doing the new grading 9- 1 system for English and Maths

    Just keep working, don't stop. It will come just don't stop working hard

    your knowledge don't mean **** if you don't know how to apply it
    do a bunch of past papers (actually attempt everything) , when you go through the mark scheme dont just tick or cross, actually look at what you did wrong.
    Check the examiner's report on it - gives you an idea of what they're looking for
    Do more past papers.
    Wash, rinse, repeat until you start getting As and A*s on them.
