    In general I have been revising but because it hasn’t been very consistent revision, my mock grades haven’t been the best. Also because of my timings in exams- i ALWAYS run out of time. However, my target grades are all between 7-9.

    Now that it’s February half term I’ve committed more time to revision and I most likely will carry it on after the half term is over, so I was wondering is it possible to get the highest grades with 3/4 months of revision left? I feel like I won’t have enough time to cover everything but I guess that depends on how much I do and how many revision sessions I attend after school

    It also doesn’t help that i live quite far from my school so by the time I return, especially after the revision sessions, it gets kinda late so i only have time for about an hour and a half of revison, shower, dinner and then sleep.

    I’m doing my a levels now and I’m wondering essentially the same but about 3 A grades. And my answer to you is yes. Remember with written subjects it’s not about your ability to recall every piece of information but rather to be able to pick relevant information and analyse. With scientific subjects it’s about the ability to apply formulas and concepts to different questions. With this in mind revise strategically: go for the most important information, do lots of past exam papers, and dedicate time to it when you normally wouldn’t. Flash cards for the journey to and from school? After studying a levels for a year you realise just how comparatively small the gcse content is, and also the pre-exam cramming really helps. To be studying this early is a big plus, you should be able to get those grades no problem. Good luck!!
