Hi I'm going to year 13 and I just wanted to know is it possible for me to get bbc or even bbb in my Alevels.

My mock results are B in aqa psychology
D in OCR history and E in sociology OCR.

The reason I have E in sociology is I never had teacher all year 12 apart from my first 4 months in the course I only covered paper 1 which I forgot now . I got new teacher in year 13 and just wanted to know would it be for me to get a C in sociology , meaning I have to revise paper1 again aswell new content from paper 2 and 3, also while doing ucas and history coursework , aswell as psy and history revision /memorisation.


How many days would you recommend me revising in order to get those grades I stated above , bearing in my circumstance. Also to just let u now psy is my fav I wanna study it at uni along with criminology maybe

Yeah it's completely possible, you just have to work hard. UCAS should be over by December and teachers can give you time to work on coursework in class. It just means you have to do more work in your frees/ during weekday evenings if you want to go out on the weekends. Start revision early and organise your time and you'll be fine

IDK about how many days in advance to revise for but basically I revised for my mocks in Dec from halloween, I also did on and off revsion during the year slowly building up the amount of work I was doing and making use of free time during mid term and Easter. Mostly revising daily for 1/2- hours a day between Easter and study leave and then was doing like 5hours a day when study leave hit.
Basically build up during the year and you'll have less to do at study leave- you can just focus on memorisation.
I also was able to complete most of my homework during my frees which left weekday evenings perfect for studying

Of course it's possible! You'd just have to work really really hard and get your predicted grades to that so unis want to accept you - I'm going to start revising from Christmas
