    This are my mock grades for this year:
    Maths - 8 (A*)
    English Language - 5 (C)
    English Literature - 6 (B)
    Biology - A
    Chemistry - A
    Physics - A
    R.S - A
    Computing - A*
    Mandarin - A*
    French - B
    History C

    So overall in the mocks I have achieved 3A*s, 4A's, 2B's and 2C's. Is this a good place to be at before the real exams in May 2017?

    In the real GCSE, I am hoping to achieve:
    Maths - 8 (A*)
    English Language - 6(C)
    English Literature - 6 (B)
    Biology - A*
    Chemistry - A*
    Physics - A*
    R.S - A
    Computing - A*
    Mandarin - A*
    French - A
    History A

    Overall, that would be 6A*s, 3A's and 2B's.

    Is it possible to reach that stage at the exams and how should I revise in order to achieve these grades?

    Woah those mocks are really good. Apparently you go up a grade to your GCSE if you revise well.In order to revise I would say is practice as many questions as possible especially for your science and maths which really helped me. I see your English language which is a C , this is the more important than literature. For English I would say practice annotating passages and doing practices questions and showing your teacher. Hope this helps 😁

    Hey what history board do you do?
    I've been getting mine back the past two weeks;
    IGCSE EDEXCEL Maths - A* (We're not doing numbers for maths but It was 97% overall so probably 9?)
    IGCSE OCR Spanish - A*
    OCR Latin - A*
    CIE History - A*
    OCR Computing - A* (But worried about coursework)
    AQA IGCSE Biology - A*
    AQA IGCSE Chemistry - A*
    AQA IGCSE Physics - A*
    NOT SURE BOARD English Lang - High 7 (really annoyed bc I was 2% off 8 )
    NOT SURE BOARD English Lit - Low A (We only do numbers in lang)
    And we didn't do a Further Maths mock even though most of my year is doing it lol
    If we do the same board for any subjects let me know and I can send you my notes!

    I do AQA for history, but I also do OCR for computing. Coursework should be easy, no need to worry about that.
