Hi! I just wanted to post this here, as a way of saying it's not too late for people to try and aim for good grades, even if you failed GCSEs, A-Levels or just didn't do so good in Year 12.

At GCSE, I was the first year to sit the new English + Maths GCSE. I got 2 A'S, 2 B's and 5 C'S. (I have counted grade 5 in Maths as a C).

In year 12, I had finished on a D in Psychology, U in Maths, Merit as a prediction for Cambridge Technicals computing.

My year 13 predicted grades were a B in Psychology, B in EPQ, Merit/Distinction in the Cambridge Technicals and a D in Maths. I have now, after remarks, achieved a B in Psychology, A* in the EPQ, D* in the Cambridge Technicals and an A in maths. I am posting this here to say that even if you are an average or failing student(I was expected to fail Maths), it is possible to get amazing grades if you try and am willing to give out advice on how I improved so much, if anyone is curious.

I would love to know about Maths and the EPQ! I don't quite know much about the EPQ but Maths I know I would love to be able to hit the grounds running in terms of preparation for the exams
