    Hey, so lemme explain my situation...i am currently in Year 11 with like less then 1 months to go. I haven't started revising and i am a underachiever...i really want to do well and my motivation is really high is here any chance i can get all 8's and 9's my teachers said no chance, but i'm willing to put the effort in. Advice??? Can i do it or not???

    I didn’t revise till the day before and got 6 GCSES SO LOL but just start now

    The only way you'll find out is by doing it. I don't think most people start revising until around now, so you shouldn't be behind in that sense. Put your all in, and I'm sure you'll get grades you're happy with. In my experience, motivation is pretty much everything. One of my Head of Sixth Form's favourite quotes is "If you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right!"
    Regardless of what you get, remember that, if you do A levels, they largely supercede GCSEs.

    ps. I'd recommend you choose more descriptive titles for your threads, so people know what they're all about. Someone with the perfect anecdote may not see it!
