    I've slacked off or messed around a lot during my first 3 years at my High school (year 7 - year 9) But i was wondering would it still be possible for someone like me , if they got there act together they could maybe even go to a top university like Harvard or Oxford, as i'm not too sure if it would still be possible...
    Thanks

    Year 10 and 11 are the crucial years, start them off correctly and you'll do fine. If you put in the work, and it doesn't even have to be an intense revision schedule, and stick to a good regime, you should be perfectly capable of achieving As and A*s.

    There's absolutely nothing stopping you from aiming for top universities! Work on getting excellent GCSE and then A Level results and you'll be off to a good start . From what I've heard, though, Harvard requires more than just good grades!

    It's definitely possible. Stay organised with your work and don't leave revision until the last minute and you'll be fine

    Good luck!

    So High School is ages 14-18 right? That's years 9-13. In America, they look at your finals grades right? If so then you can still turn everything around
