I need to get my grades in Economics, Business, Computer Science (C, C, D respectively) to A, A, B to get into my university of choice. Is it still actually a possibility to reach this? I only started revising a week ago, although I have been consistent.

Sorry if I put this in the wrong section, I couldn't figure out where else to put it. . .

Yes, it's possible.

But at the end of the day, none of us have crystal balls to give you a guaranteed answer. You just need to try your best.

Your doing economics at A level?
I got my E in AS level, to an A in econ ( i retook my 1st year exams)
i remember revising for 2 weeks for ECON1, and then a max of 4 days each for the rest of them - literally - had very little knowledge during the year
Having said that i did have all my notes made and ready for me to remember and more importantly, practice
So you defo have enough time to get your grades up It's all in your method of revision! quality>quantity

It's never too late. At this stage you have a few months, and with plenty of work you can achieve anything you want to. Good luck .

Very much possible. I managed to go from predictions of BBCU to A*A*A*C in less time last year. Get your goals in mind, figure out what you need to do to achieve these goals, formulate a plan, execute the plan.

Out of those subjects, I only took Computer Science, how is your coursework? That can take a lot of strain of the exam if it's done well.

It could be better, but I'm thinking of getting a personal tutor to see if they can give me a hand to tell me where I can improve and how. In my first year, our teacher didn't really know how to teach A-Level computer science and didn't know the programming language we were learning (Python). He was sacked but we effectively lost a year, hence the D grade. :/

Also nice job with your results Thanks for your advice

Course you can and don't put so much pressure on yourself to actually get them grades . Revise and just see what you get what's more important is your mental health. Hope everything goes okay

Personally, I would be revising from Septemer, but if you had started a week ago, that is fine, but you need to under stand you will have to be consistent or else all this revision you had done is going to be a waste to the run up of the exam. Good luck in the exam!

no lol.

a hypothetical:

say you revise 4 hours a day.

4 hours * 30 days * 4 months = 480 hours

480 hours is more than enough to get straight As.
