Not turned around exactly, but I went from getting 6s and 7s in science tests and November mocks to a double 9 in combined science, and I do put that primarily down to having down so many practice questions and papers and all that in the last month or so!

I remember last year when I was in your position panicking trying to find out if people could revise within the last month and still get good grades. I remember my predicted grades were like 2 6's 4 7's 2 8's and a 9, these grades look good but I come from an asian family with high expectations and my recent mocks back then in March I got 2 6's in both English's (I was predicted 7's for them) I was a fairly bright kid j was lazy and every time I tried to

okay Student room have literally deleted 3/4 of the **** I wrote ffs so here's the simple: Flashcards, make them learn from them, I got 6 9s and 3 8s at gcse becuase of them

I did edexcel so I used the pearson revision guides and all the past papers on getrevising.com, even the one from the old spec (but missing out the questions from topics we don't study)

Went from a 4 in English to a 9. I think this took slightly longer than a month but you can still make a BIG difference in a month

This year is said to have the largest number of candidates... ever.
That can either help us, because there's a large number of candidates, or mess us all up.

Well it depends on how the country do, and since this is such a big set of candidates,it probably will increase. But it can be good for us- as the boards will aim to make the papers as accessible as possible, so the papers may be easier.
