i did and all my targets are As
idk what my results will look like since i didn't try all year round for the topic tests or the mocks and i even missed out the yr 11 ones )) bc i was ill

this is making the wait for results day even worse since i could do really bad or ok or really good-theres no way of me knowing ))))

I did for some subjects such as English Literature and didn't revise at all for other subjects, such as French since it's harder to do last minute revision for a Language.

I didn't for major subjects such as Eng lit. and maths and science and paper 1 for history, but for the majority of my subjects I did last minute revision - I've never done a great deal of revision for English language before and I got great grades therefore I didn't feel the need to do huge amounts of revision and also for English literature I've never read any of the books but I knew what they were partially about but tbh I don't regret doing most of my revision last minute but it does make me quite nervous for my results in August.

I started revising two weeks before my GCSE's and I got five A's and four B's. Good enough.

I last minute crammed everything... didn't even 'cram' for the majority, just skimmed a textbook or 100% winged it other than half-hearted revision in lesson time. I still hit my targets, that's not me showing off, I'm not proud of it lol.

Typically, did the same with A Levels. I thought I would've 'changed' at this point but nope, and I might be ****ed this time.

I just really want to prove my damn teacher wrong like he gave me a 3 at the start of year 11 then I went on to get a 9 in that term like whattttt I need to get that again but my dream of that and reaching my forecast level of an 8 probably has went into the hands of grammar school students smh.

Are you being serious? The whole vocabulary list? And one day before?

If so, that's some impressive memory. The only revision for French was Linguascope on the bus. Don't know if you can call that revision.
