    I want to take biology, psychology and english language and study at southampton uni but im failing all my gcses and i have no motivation at all. I haven't been offered a level courses so they're telling me to do level 2 due to my mock grades but i know that if i try harder i can get the grades i want. I just need the motivation to revise at all.Any tips?

    Doing practice questions is a very good way of revising. Especially for maths. Anything you dont get right then spend time looking at how to get it right and then try it again. that way you have learnt the method and if you do it a lot then you will soon up your grade. all down to hard work! Good luck i hope that you can achieve the grades. also dont read too much into the predicteds this year for the subjects that havent done 9-1 yet. They may be getting it totally wrong like they are at my school. if you want to send some percentages of what you got on recent mocks for some subjects and i will tell you what your predicted grade probably should be instead of what they say. They may be totally right but you never know until you check.

    how do you know you are capable of 6/7/8s if you are currently getting 3's? did you used to get them but are now doing worse? i'm asking because there is a huge difference between a level 3 and a 6, in terms of future options like a levels/uni x
