    I am doing AS this year and when I mean bad results I mean I am getting 3 C's in all of my exams. I don't think I am that bright of a student as I was not the typical guy who left school with all As. My prediction grades are all B's however I want to get all A's to get into a good university.

    I am becoming demotivated by seeing the same results over and over what can I do to improve my grades by the end of the year? Please help!

    Really, really don't worry! I did moderately okay at GCSE, but while the step wasn't so steep for me at the start of the year, I was doing quite badly in Mock exams and topic-tests. A-levels are a massive challenge, and it's no wonder why so many people can't hack it - but you're definitely not one of them! I have been wondering myself how everyone across the country are expected to get these top grades when things are this hard!

    Ask to see what other successful people are doing when they get home, during their frees (BIG thing - wasted all my frees and regretted it massively on Results Day) and try and implement it.

    Papers, Papers, PAPERS. The key to success. What's better than doing what you''ll be doing in the real thing? Learn from mistakes and really get to know what they look for using mark-schemes.

    Gd luck. Hope things improve!
