    I'm in year 11 and I am looking into sixth forms and colleges. I am looking into doing electrical engineering in uni.

    In college the course requires 4 E's (electrical Engineering)

    In sixth form I have saw that to do on to a degree you need physics as an A-Level. But the course requirements are BB in science higher tier and a A in maths.

    Is it possible to go from a C in science and maths to a A? As last year we do one set of science exams which goes towards the end of year 11, we get 2 GCSEs it goes on a average of the grades combined I achieved a C last year.

    Reword the question to "is it possible to improve in a subject" and then stop asking silly questions.

    Hi m8. I'd like to tell you that it sure is! With proper measures taken, of course.
    Just set up regular revision periods - start with really short ones if you tend to procrastinate a lot, because those are easier to complete. Little by little, increase the amount of time revising.
    Let's say, 30 minutes a day for each subject.
    Next week, move on to 35 minutes. And then, so on.
    This'll help you stay consistent and build a little study routine. And it's also motivating since it'll let you know that you've done *something* as opposed to nothing and time wastage. So that's an advantage.
    Oh and being subject specific - make sure to clear ANY doubts you've got regarding concepts in A level Physics and Chemistry. Try video lectures on YouTube. There's tons available.
    For chemistry, I recommend learning 5 chemical reactions on a daily basis before you sleep, you won't find them to be a hassle on the exam day then. It's low but it'll help you remember and learn them.
    For physics, practice the numerical problems. Write down the key notes of everything and remember them while solving past papers. And please solve as many past papers as you can (the mark sheet's given so you can evaluate yourself too), they'll improve your grades dramatically.
    As for math, practice, practice, practice.
    When they say practice makes a man perfect, they ain't wrong. So go for it! If you're determined to succeed, you might as well do it.
