I am finding it difficult to prepare for my exams. I have recently done my mocks, but the result has left me wondering i'f i can still meet my expectations.
My target grades are as follows:
maths - 8 Business - 8
Double Science - 8 8 Computer Science - 8
Physical Education - 8 R.E. - 8
English Literature - 6 English Language - 6
CiDA - B+/6+
My recent results are really low except maths, Business, CiDA which were 5's , but this is really far from my target grade and the required grade to study certain subjects for A-Level. I don't really revise, never have and only started recently, 1 week before mocks, and i have tried a few things but it hasn't really worked. As either i didn't try for long enough or it just simply doesn't suit me.
I am writing this question to ask, if you can help me and other people in similar situations out, with any revision tips or how you succeeded.
Thank You for your responses.

Hey, what my head teacher said when I did GCSEs was that mocks are a starting point and that most people will go up at least one grade, if you work you can go up two and if you work really hard or underperformed in mocks you can go up three. A lot of schools also make mocks harder than real exams in some way, to scare people into studying.
Sadly sometimes you have to revise even if you don't feel like it... you still have time if you start now, but you won't meet your grades if you don't persevere with studying even if your initial methods aren't your favourites.
