    Hello! For every single one of my GCSE's my target is a 9. This isn't where the school has set them but something to do with the government and predictions ( I honestly don't know).
    I'm not angry or upset about this; it's actually very motivating! However, I know that if I don't get a nine in all my subjects, I will feel like I've not reached my potential/let people down.
    My teachers have told me not to let this pressure to get to me, and if I need help they'll always be there to offer it. But I was wondering whether any of you have advice or are currently in the same boat!

    Anyone who has had to handle pressure and has tips and tricks will greatly help, same with those who have great revision tips!

    Thank you all so much!

    all of my minimum expected grades are 8s apart from history and ethics which are both 9s, it's horrible! but i found setting my own targets was really useful, so you've still got something to work towards but you can add all your own context into it
