    Hey everyone,

    I am currently predicted ABC (A in art, B in maths and C in physics).

    I was wondering if it would be possible for me to get to AAB or AAA at A2

    My school has taken on the reformed A levels so we only did Maths 'AS'. In maths I got C1:A , C2:B (I messed up the last question and dropped 12 marks there) , C3 (didn't do any work for it). I am resitting C2 & C3.

    Physics I got a U in the mock because there was no AS.

    For Art I am predicted an A but legit think my teacher has no clue how much work I've done because although my work is high standard I have only done like 10 pieces which aren't very big and I feel I have done no work.

    Do you think it would be possible for me to get to AB or AA in maths and physics by the time exams come around in May. Or have I utterly screwed myself at having chances of getting AAB - AAA?

    Of course it's possible. Whilst these are predictions, they're not hard ceilings on the grade you can get. It sounds cliche but if you study the material thoroughly and work hard revising, you'll maximise the chance of getting those As that you're after.

    If you know where your weaknesses are (from the sounds of it, Physics?), prioritise those areas and make sure you understand why something is what it is. If you understand how something works rather than memorising the process from a textbook, you should be able to do well in the exams.

    Best of luck

    Thanks for the encouragement! I'm just panicking because teachers keep telling me how rare it is for someone to go from C to A.

    They do that precisely to motivate people to work hard and study :lol: It might be rare, but it's definitely doable.
