I’ve got 9s in the subjects I wanna do for A level and I’m scared I won’t do well in A Levels either
Honestly it's hard to say when you're just starting out! Someone might go from a 7 at GCSE to an A* at A-level, or a 9 at GCSE to a B/C at A-level. I think the reason for this is that grades don't really say anything about effort or potential. The person who got that 7 at GCSE might have not tried as hard as they could have and had plenty of room for improvement, and potential to study that subject further if they pull their socks up effort-wise, whereas the person who got that 9 could've struggled to get to that level and struggled with the transition to A-level. Hopefully it should become clear after you've been doing A-levels for a while. (bear in mind some people do improve considerably between year 12 and year 13!)

While you're right in a sense - I still think it's good to try your best to pass as soon as you can otherwise it just becomes an inconvenience later on down the road.
What inconvenience though?

sad to see the tremendous amount of pressure put on what 15 year olds to pass exams
teachers don't care about students they care about the spreadsheets

I might be of help with English

I am running a business currently in order to raise money for an expedition in 2021.

In order to raise the funds I have created sample papers for GCSE AQA English Literature and Language. With this, I am hoping to distribute the papers across the country for Year 10 and 11s in the post that you can complete and send back to our address. These will then be marked by experienced English markers, who mark for AQA, and the marks will be returned to you, and your scripts will be returned to you by email (scanned it).
** Most importantly : with your marks we will send you a detailed personalised document containing top tips on how you can improve, and these will be written by the examiners who mark your paper**

If you are interested, please reply the cost will be £5, which is very cheap considering the experience of examiners and the tips you will be given back which is personalised.

This is a very lucky opportunity, and when I used a similar service this time last year it really benefited me and it helped me progress from 6s to 9s.

Thank you

And this is my post so I have the right to say "you're 'bumping' after only an hour?"

However I'm sure silly bumps are gonna be against the rules, if that's important to you.

It is going to suck, they’re the most important exams so far and there’s people who get straight 9s. I don’t have any motivation to revise anymore
Most important so far doesn't mean they're actually that important

You've made an anonymous thread acting as if your life's over at 15 because of GCSEs, and you're gonna start telling yourself other people are stressed or not calm?
