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.
don't give up, people that start revising now get 9s! You could easily get 7s if you work now!

there is less than 6 months for gcse and im failing everything!!!!
im on a grade 3 but want a 7 or higher
im going to revise 4 hours on weekdays and 7 hours on weekends [1 hour each subject]
is it possible for me to get a 7 or more in less than 6 months?
i really want to go to medical school but i dont think can make it ?
It is possible!!! But make sure you don’t burn out or it will go backwards!!!! try and have breaks and downtime and use your time effectively! Get a tutor in the sciences and maths as they are the most important for medical school!!

I went from a 5 in my February mock to a 9 in physics. Of the three sciences, I put in the most effort with physics. Use the Easter holidays wisely. It's a very useful two week period. However, if you have half term coming up, also use that to put work into revision, whether that be making revision resources or doing other active forms of revision. Also make sure to target your revision. It'll be worth highlighting specific areas in each subject that you are weak in and start working on them first. While it is very tempting to pick the things you are good at to 'ease yourself into it' you are in reality doing yourself 0 favours. Good luck!

Well done on that 9 in Physics.

Could you please share some of your tips I’m struggling in the sciences rn and it would really help as I want high grades in them, did you use flash cards or what sort of revision technique?

this may not work for all but what i did is i compressed all of the science books, so i basically made nearly 400 pages into 40-50 pages, yes that is a lot of pages but the amount of unnecessary stuff in those books is too much.

To do this method:

Get a notepad for the notes
binder(s) would be very helpful to store notes neatly
file separators are ideal
the revision guides (like the CGP ones)
highlighter
the specification

So now you need to read through the book and also look at the topic you're reading on the specification so you aren't learning excess stuff. When you have all of your notes, read over them notes every so often as this improves the amount of information you will remember

This method made me go from a level 4 to a 7 (and i only really read the notes a few days before the exams) and moved me into triple science 4 months before the GCSEs.

Once again this may not work for you because people learn in different ways but to get a decent grade learning content is the best but for the 8 and 9 you need to understand how to apply your knowledge into the answers.
