    I'm doing GCSE's and I'm predicted 6's and 7's for all my subjects. Is it possible that if I put the work in I can get all 9's at the end of year 11? I'm in year 10 now.
    How much work do I need to do? What kind of work should I be doing to achieve this? How intense should my revision be?

    My subjects:
    English (lit and lang) AQA
    Maths AQA
    Science Edexcel
    Music AQA
    Citizenship AQA
    History AQA
    Food and Nutrition AQA

    I heard you have to be in the top 3% to get a 9.


    Virtually impossible. You'd have to be a modern day polymath à la Aristotle to achieve that

    If you put in the work that would be quite easy. So you could defo pull that off GL.

    Yes, because your subjects are diverse.

    Apparently only two students in the entire country will get all 9s...but you never know, you could be one of them! Still, an 8 is an A*, which is nothing to be ashamed of, so I would aim for that if you like

    Aim for what you feel is aspirational but still achievable, or you might work yourself too hard.
