    I imagine it’s going to be pretty difficult. Studying 24/7 won’t do you any good though! They will adjust the grade boundaries depending on how well everyone has done that year, so some years the threshold may be high and other years it may be lower. You are going to need to have an excellent grasp of whatever subject you need a 9 in. My best advice is past papers. Do as many as you can! It helps with exam technique and gives you a really good idea of what areas your knowledge is lacking.

    The problem is that past papers don't exist for most of the GCSEs now with it being the new GCSEs!

    There will be past papers from the old GCSEs with similar topics and the exam boards will have created example papers to practice with. Also, revision books are full of exam questions so any of those you can purchase will help you along massively too.
