In the height of exams, I wanted to know if any of you did something last minute eg: essay, exam, or anything and still ended up getting a good result. It could be for gcses, a levels, university. I am sure we have all been there.

I personally think without revising anything, you would not get a good grade, but I guess everyone is different!

Im doiing my A levels exams, commencing tuesday. I did all my GCSE's grinding the night before and got 6A's 3B's. Kinda **** compared to some people getting straight A. I'm grinding A-levels now, barely done any revision. ****ing scared. I have three days to know what I need for my first set. I'm trying to, now, just finish what I need to know (specifics) for my next exam. Not trying to finish everything before first exam.

My gcse computing went alright last year. Revised the day before and got a C on the paper, with my coursrwork pulling my final grade to a B. I was happy with that considering I messed around throughout 90% of my computing lessons. I also misunderstood the layout of the paper, which cost me marks (I assumed the blank page with a line through was the end, sat for 10 minutes with my paper shut then decided to check my answers and realised in horror there was still like 7 questions with two 6 markers lol).

Yeah, I guess, I just really like history and so I find it a easier subject, I think that's the reason.

I got an updated timetable for my GCSEs but didn't realise the old one didn't have my astronomy exam on and I didn't realise I had the exam until the night before; I revised all morning (didn't sleep) and went into the exam that day exhausted - but I still got an A*

My school did my Maths GCSE and core science in year 10, and I really didn’t take them seriously until my parents reminded me I had less than a week until each of them. Got an A* in maths and an A in science a year early?

Last minute revision isn't always the end of the world . If you learn only what you need to know - you can get a lot done in a short space of time

That's great. You did a year early, that's different but your result is amazing.
