    If you didn’t revise to the standard that you would when it comes to your GCSEs then don’t be alarmed as you will hopefully try harder for them. However if you tried your hardest for these tests and you aren’t happy with C grades talk to your teachers, look up revision techniques and maybe look at tutoring or why you don’t fully understand.

    Depends what you're aiming for. If you're happy with a C or B (5 or 6), you're fine. But if you're looking at A* (8 or 9), you've got to put in the work. Look at where you went wrong and practice those kinds of questions. If they're mostly 1 or 2 mark questions, learn the official mark scheme answers. It's annoying, but they can be very pedantic about these so just learn the whole phrase.

    You shouldn't be alarmed, especially at this stage. I know people who got A*s who got less than 40% (sometimes even below 20...) in some of their class tests. You've got 19 months .

    I dont think that's too bad at the start of year 10 when you've just transitioned from KS3 to KS4. I recommend starting revision now, it doesnt need to be hours and hours of intense revision but just recapping topics from year 9 and going over content you've learn in previous weeks in lesson to make sure your keeping on top of your work. Revision is key and it really pays off.
