    Last year I didn't really try my hardest. I attended school everyday and listened in lessons. All homework that needed completing, I completed. Before tests I would revise for hours upon hours... but my mental health issues got in the way of studying. My art coursework fell dramatically due to lack of motivation. I also was reluctant to ask for any help. This meant that my Y10 mock results weren't the greatest. Athough I recognised the information, I didn't truly understand it. I've decided that I'm going to invest the entire duration of my school holidays studying. I'm doing 6 hours a day; 2 hours dedicated to one subject. Is it possible for me to pass my GCSEs still if I've left it this late?

    You haven't left it late at all. But if you think this will help you (and I'm sure it will), it'll be good to put in the hours.

    Don't forget that these are holidays and you should be getting plenty of rest and relaxation time!

    No one's going to know that answer except for you when you get back. Dedicate yourself, be disciplined, know when to rest and when to work. And if you can maintain this when school is back on I don't see a reason why you shouldn't see an improvement. Nothing in life is guarenteed, but learn from the experience of what you're doing and how it affected your results. Did it improve them? If yes, could you apply that mentality into the next stage and own it? Good luck, you've got the right mind-set now. Even if you don't get the result you want, you've discovered the mind-set that will help you. Again, I wish you the best of luck!

    Regards.

    Personally I wouldn't have said you have left it too late whatsoever, you have almost a year to turn it around so as long as you plan your time well! Make sure you don't over do it this holidays though, you don't want to peak this early, so try to make sure you have a good balance between work and play

    I'm in year 10 too and sometimes knowing that after summer I will be in year 11 makes me feel that turn is running out too. But it's not. You still have a year and if you work hard during term time (or in summer), you can still do awesome.
