I think the main thing is - DONT PANIC!!! I know it’s hard but if you panic then you will be less likely to improve because that knowledge won’t go in!

I know exactly how you feel - in my mocks ( January ) I achieved U/Es and 2s in all 9 of my subjects. I revised for about 2hrs after school and 4hrs at the weekend and I achieved 2As 4Bs 3Cs. They aren’t all 7s but I am currently applying to medical school and SOME only look at maths English grade B or above.

so to answer your question yes it is possible. It’s about the effort you put in and not just I spent 4hrs looking at my books , you need to actively revise , past papers , flashcards ect

good luck!
Also - don’t listen to people that say you can’t because that’s just going to demotivate you! Honestly DONT , I think that’s so important believe in yourself , it IS possible. I’m not a qualified teacher but I do a little bit of tutoring to my neighbors son and he went from 3s to 8s in about 1/2months. PLEASE DONT LISTEN TO THE HATERS!!!!

Yessss definitely. Nobody revises GCSEs until there’s 6 months to go. Now’s the perfect time. I went from a 3–>7 in literature and 5–>8 in language and 5—>9 in rs.
Tbh I don’t know how I got those grades. I always went to the revision sessions. I believe examiners and my teachers marked them harshly. Anyway for rs I made 2 mind maps on an A4 piece of paper back to front and made lots of notes by using my exam boards course book wjec eduqas that was uploaded by my teacher. Then for English language this year most ppl write about love island to answer the 40m which was something about famous ppl but love island was a really really generic boring and over used. I used Justin burger Greta thunberg (learnt about her the day b4) and somebody different like shirley temple. Just write about ppl hat others wouldn’t know about etc

But I’m really scared and people say I can’t do it ??? If I try hard can I get higher grade possibly a 9 even ??? Pls reply xxx
Brother, I came in the country late and didn't speak English. Two years after I sat all my GCSEs and achieved one of the top results in my school. My predicted grades were ranging from As to Ds (averaging Cs in most subjects with only maths being an A predicted). I proved all my teachers and 'friends' wrong (yes even my friends didn't believe in me). I achieved mostly A*s to As (9-7s) in my GCSEs and it was through consistent hard work from December holidays and you are right on time from when I started. Ignore what everyone says, ghost everyone, focus on yourself and work as hard as you can, it is stupid to say that it is impossible to get a 9. I believe in you, work hard

I went from a 4 to 9 in RS
I went from a 4 to 7 in double science
Also a 5-6
I went from a 5 to 8 in history and and 3 to 8 in geo
I went from a 4 and 5 in English to a 6 and 7

This was all while I had measles two weeks before GCSEs and two or so weeks into exams I failed 3 though. Spanish maths and computer science. I started the year on 7 in com sci and was predicted an 8 in current effort but no one could have predicted I get measles just before GCSES

Just to bring up my personal story, I had mocks in March, two months before my GCSE’s, and I found myself in the similar position as you are right now. I was failing, VERY badly. I was getting 2’s and 3’s in English language and literature, 5’s in RE, 2/3’s in Chemistry, 3’s in Physics and 4’s in Biology. This was 2 months before my final exams. But I seemed to sort my act out slightly before the exams and got 7’s, 8’s and 9’s throughout all of my subjects. Believe me , you have PLENTY of time if you utilise it very wisely and do not waste any of it. Speak to your teachers on how you can improve and stay back after school for help and support if that it provided. Your GCSE’s are very important and the one thing I really regret is not trying hard enough because I tried here and there and got all A/A*/A** equivalent but I could’ve gotten all A* and higher if I had spent the time and put in more work if only I took my GCSE’s seriously. I really do believe that all 8’s and 9’s are achievable for anyone if they try hard enough from now till your GCSE’s are over.
Your story is REALLY inspiring! T-T How did you deal with procrastination? - I have year 11 December mocks, in a weeks' times and I've done nothing D:.. I don't know what's wrong with me... Also, how did you revise for each subject? x Lastly, a HUGE congratulations on your results!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It must've took a huge about of determination, discipline and hard work to get those!!!!!

i went from a 3 in history to an 8, a 6 in graphics to a 9, a 2 in maths to a 6 and a 4 in latin to an 8

i assure you, it’s possible, just buckle down, dedicate yourself and memorise the spec - much like you’re doing now!

My 'story' is quite similar I guess , I fricked up chemistry and biology in my year 10 mocks(I take trilogy so my overall grade for science was only a 4) and I'm aiming for a 7 so I can take physics at sixth form.

Yes, you can. I went from a 4 to an 8 in RE. I got a 4 in my mocks and an 8 in GCSEs. I revised the night before. Not saying you should do the same but anything is possible (especially if you actually try). It’s never too late to begin revision.

You could easily get above 7s with that amount of revision but I’d recommend you to enter your revision sessions slowly it you’re going to burn out soon and won’t want to revise for GCSEs as much

Think it would definitely be possible and if you put all the work into it you are in a better position to gain a 7/8/9 from a 3. Believe in yourself good luck

Yikes, I know this thread was a few months ago, but I am in the same position. In my Nov/Dec Mocks, I got two 6s, one 5, and the rest are 3s. And I really want 7s and above. I'm kinda losing hope right now because GCSEs are coming quickly, and we have like 3 months left.
