    My brother got all B's and C's last year in his mocks and after february half term he didn't stop revising. He revised 3-6 hours on school nighs and 6-14 hours on weekends every single day. By the time exam came around he wasn't even stressed, because he was so confident he knew everything. He came out with 6 A*'s and 3 9's. With GCSE it's very possible to do well if you start now. Not so much with A level, so don't make the same mistake then and start from day 1! Good-Luck man!
    Not directed to me, but that's actually inspiring

    Yeh man ahah Watching him was inspiring and eye opening for me and i made sure not to make the same mistake he did. Work hard now, so you don't have to work so hard later and instead, reep the reward in full. Good luck to you dude

    P.s you probably won't have to do that much work to achieve similar results, because he over did it in my opinion lol

    I'm doing quite similar to you and i think it's deffo possible - with a bit of hard work of course. These are the grades i got in my last set of mocks.
    Maths - 7
    Eng lang -6 (2 marks off a 7)
    Eng lit - 5
    Science trilogy 5-5
    Computer science - 4
    Spanish - 6
    Business - B
    I'm starting revision soon, stay in contact and we can track each others progress to keep us motivated

    I got an 8 in maths last year and I thought I'd get a 6.

    I did this by repetitively doing practice questions.

    Go to mathsgenie and physicsandmathstutor. These websites are full of questions, keep at it until you can do them in your sleep. Good luck.
    Wow well done!! Are you doing A levels now?

    It is possible but stop going on TSR and asking that, when you could be actually doing it
    Hahaha! Certainly true!

    Hello everyone.
    Since half term is almost over and GCSEs are 3 months away from now, do you think there is still time to revise every subject thoroughly? So a little background information, the subjects that I currently take are, the core subjects English Lang, English lit, maths and science (double award, but I still study all three sciences within the course). For my options I chose History, Geography, Religious Studies and Drama. For the last mocks that I did a couple of months ago, I hardly revised for any of them and got grades that I wasn’t particularly happy with. For each subject, I got the following.
    Eng Lang - 6
    Eng lit- 5
    Maths- 5
    Science- 5
    History- 8
    Geography-4
    Drama-3 (missed out a whole section of the exam and didn’t submit most of my coursework)
    RS-3 (only 2 people in the year passed, the teacher isn’t a very good marker and also the grade boundaries that my school uses are ridiculously high even though we’re the first year to sit the new exams).
    Do you think with a lot of revision over the next few months, I can get all 7s, 8s and 9s? Thanks.
    You can but you need to work hard. Work on your weak areas and a study timetable can also really help. Idk if you already know this but getrevising (part of student room) offers quite a good template study timetable.

    Speaking from my Year 10 exams (we have to sit half of our GCSE exams a year early in my school), I didn’t start properly revising until two months to go, and I got all A*s, so it’s definitely possible. Of course Year 11 will be slightly harder, but hat extra month will be more than enough off you work hard.

    You're gonna have to do a hell of a lot of work. You need to find a good revision strategy FAST but you can certainly do it if you try hard.
