    Well i believe that intelligence is a fixed trait and can only improved onto within a certain capacity. I have always wondered if it is possible to achieve full marks on all your GCSE exams if your capacity is low but with hard-work and determination is it possible?(If it is, what methods would i have to use to achieve full marks on all my exams or somewhat close enough).

    it's possible, just difficult. you can know everything you need to know and not get full marks because of badly written questions and strict examiners

    Yeah, but learn to use proper grammar first m8

    It depends on the subject. If it's Maths or Physics, getting full marks is just a matter of getting all the right answers. If you learn all the content and can do all the problem types, you can achieve that. It's not easy but it's far from impossible, I've got full marks on some exams and one of my friends got full marks on even a few A Level maths papers.

    If you're doing an essay-based subject, it's a lot harder, as you're not just ticking boxes, and there's subjectivity involved on the part of the marker. Everything from the the content of your arguments to the way you write has to be persuasive enough to that individual person that you deserve 100%. It's probably more sensible for these kinds of subjects to aim for somewhere in the 90%s, and consider that full marks for all intents and purposes.
