    I'm in year 13, I've been doing ok in class tests (As/A*s) but in my mocks I've been doing poorly (Bs/Cs). I think I just don't have enough time to learn the content

    100% can be done! You're doing well in class tests which means you get the jist of things. With hard work from now on, you can do it.

    Why does everyone seem to think there's a linear scale where you definitely need X amount of hours to get a specific grade? Why does everyone think they've left it to late when there's 1000 hours between now and the end of Easter holidays, let alone how many hours you've got until your exams.

    If you have 5 contact hours for a unit each week, and around half your class is actually spent learning stuff, that's 2.5 hours per week, across two terms is 60 hours. Even if you were learning for every single minute of every single class, 5 hours per week over 24 weeks is still only 120 hours. Tell me again why you think you don't have enough time?

    You're mistaking experience for awesomeness. But thanks all the same

    Well, if you're just seeking 1 A* then maybe, in your strongest subject. If you want A*s in all subjects, then realistically, probably not.

    I usually don't, but now I'm writing out all my case studies and the textbooks for the course.
