    Yes you certainly do have the chance of getting the grades. Of course achieving all 9s and A-A* is really hard and requires a lot of dedication so I would suggest you to plan your time carefully during your GCSEs and make sure you are working on target. Time won't come back to you so make the most of it.

    You don't really need to do something special. Just make sure you are using time to your advantage. Make a plan about what you want to do that week. Look up the topics you have covered in lessons and what you will cover. Then all you do is go online or through your notebooks and textbook and make notes. If you tell me what subjects you are doing, I might be able to assist with some if I have some spare time

    hey i appreciate that so much and thanks alot for your help. ill be doing physics, chemistry,biology,maths,geograph y,sociology.english lit and language and german and i feel like its so much to do in such s short space of time
    You'll come back to this next year and just laugh at how stressed you are. Honestly, everyone feels the pressure. I was so stressed out around December, and looking back honestly it wasn't worth worrying over. I came out with 10 A*-A .
    Enjoy the time you have before the hard revision kicks in..

    She tries her best but she's in her second year of A levels, taking on very difficult subjects and she's trying to get into medicine in a good uni, so she does not have that much time.

    I didn't. Left it all until the beginning of May until I actually starting revising. I wasn't lazy, I did listen in class, just never actually got round to full revision until May. I suppose work on your weaknesses. No point revising the stuff you're good at, you'll just be kidding yourself.

    No problem . Just don't bother wasting 5000 hours making and colouring in a revision timetable, I guarantee you won't stick to it for more than a week.
