No.

Firstly, that's not helpful or kind. Secondly, you can get through an awful lot of content in two months or so if you are focused.

Yeah exactly. 2 months is plenty of time. Exams are in like 50 days. If you do 10hrs a day thats 500 hours!

You can get through so many past papers every day and know them off by heart until october if you study that much per day. Trust me your friend will do amazing and can jump so many grades if they stick to it.

No, 2 months is plenty of time to revise content just not learn it. If they’ve already learned all the content fro their subjects and are just revising then 2 months is plenty of time to get a decent grade.

I didn’t revise any of my GCSEs until the night before, my A-levels max a week before each exam. I got into a well respected RG uni.

I’m not saying I recommend that approach. I’d have probably got higher grades if I’d done more revision. But I don’t understand at all the people who say “it’s too late!!!” when they have months to go.

It's all about revising smart, not hard, even if they did have 500 hours, they could have 100 hours and still do really well, if your friend utilised their time properly, it's never too late.

To be fair, he doesn't know he needs to retake yet. For now, I would just leave him to it.

Unless he is asking you for specific advice, I wouldn't necessarily tell him anything at this stage. I'd also suggest he asks his teachers for support/advice tomorrow if he does need to retake.

No, that's not what I'm saying.

I'd say- wait and see what happens tomorrow, and if you do need to retake then talk to your teachers for advice first. You could also share some things that worked for you, then.

I asked because I was confused as how you were coming across. You started off by asking whether you should tell your friend he was too late to start revising.

I was asking for context.

It’s fab that you want to help and, asking how you can help him is a great thing to do but it isn’t how your posts were coming across.

The first time I picked up a book was yesterday for chemistry and quite a lot of it came rushing back. Think of it like riding a bike, you start of rocky but you never forget how to ride one and get back into the swing of things in no time.
