    I’ve just been told I need 5 A’s and 2 B’s at GCSE to get into my 4 A levels + Welsh bac (yes, I know how difficult it’ll be) but that wasn’t what I was expecting to have to get. Originally, I had a target of the usual 6 Cs (which would be easy for me to get) but 5 A’s and 2 B’s is going to be a HUGE challenge. I got 1 A, 2 B’s and 5 C’s in my year 10 exams, so at the rate that I’m going, I won’t be reaching my grade requirements to do 4 A levels. I will need to do EVERYTHING I can possibly do in these next 4 months to achieve those grades- I just need guidance. I need to get these grades, but also prepare myself for failure so I don’t beat myself up too much about it (which I already know I will.)
    Anyone with any information on how I can actually make this dream a reality would be highly appreciated.
