    So I study biology. chemistry and, mathematics and just had my mocks. I got DEE which is basically failure. I did revise a bit with about 6 hours into each subject but I myself know that it wasn't enough since its basically all I've done this year, apart from homework's. I wanted to know if it is still possible for me to realistically get BCC. I have all my university offers in but I doubt I can get ABB for my top choice so BCC is somewhat more likely so how many hours a week should I aim to do. Thanks.

    Please don't roast me, I already know I've messed up but all I can do is work to make up for my slacking.

    What uni course have you applied for? Because I know some unis are more flexible with your grades if you put them firm choice. EG a course I’ve applied for is ABB, but they said they’d accept for less if they had space on the course if we’d put them firm as they’d know that we want to be at that uni and are passionate about it.

    Well, it's February. Your exams are in what, 3 months? You can easily catch up if you really try hard. It's not too late yet.

    Doesn't matter how many hours you do it matters what you do with your time. Likelihood is you weren't revising effectively. Doing 6 hours means nothing - you could read a textbook for 6 hours and say you revised, or you could make notes, do practice papers etc. for 6 hours and then that would be actual revision. Re-evaluate your strategies.

    It's computer science at liverpool and I get what you mean. Thanks for the tip, I'll ensure I put it as firm
