Are you going to give up if not?

Try your best anyway and you may be surprised.

Anything is possible with enough work, but then again it may not be.

No one here will know the answer (for your individual circumstances) - don't get your hopes up, but don't give up either. As I said, you may even get AAA... no one knows.

Hi there.

As ecolier has said we can't say for sure. I would say that if try your best then you can't regret not giving it your all.

Best wishes.

that's true i will just need to put more hard work in.... hopefully my grades will flourish especially as next year i will officially finish the courses but i still feel really nervous. also this might sound stupid and you may not know the answer to it but is it possible to apply for universities with higher grade than you're predicated (only by 2 grades max)?x

Heya! I know it may seem impossible right now but with enough hard work and better revision techniques, you could improve your grades!

To begin with I'd recommend looking over your revision technique - is it effective for YOU? Everyone is different and everyone learns differently, try googling different revision techniques and see which ones would suit you best. Personally I am a practical learner so I did tons of past papers rather than spending too much time reading the books and made myself do mocks as well (sit for 1hr doing past papers without looking at the answers and marking myself critically or have my tutor mark my work). This really helped me with maths especially! My friends were more of visual learners so theyd have tons of colour coded notes and flashcards. I would also recommend having a dedicated notebook on specific subject. It helped me a lot with taking notes or finding notes and it might help you too

There is also tons of time to start your revision and preparing for the exams over the summer! Perhaps dedicate 1 or 2 hrs every other day on your revision. Identify your weak points and start going through them first. If it helps, here are free resources and free blogs to help with your revision and notes! I would also contact your teacher and go over your mocks and have them explain what you did wrong/ how to improve.

Have you also considered an A-level tutor? They help you with revision and to understand the material better through personalised revision plans. If you are interested here is the link, but you are not obligated to! Study Mind also has tons of free resources and useful tips to help you with your revision

Hope this helps and good luck!

It is definitely possible, in my year 12 mocks I got grades BBC , whereas in my year 13 mocks I got grades AAB. Through my experience I’d say it’s definitely possible to achieve ABB or higher in year 13

Btw I took maths, English lit and further maths so our subjects weren’t too different

My advice is make use of the practice papers for maths and get comfortable with utilising the calculator and formula booklet. The more practice papers you do the less exams can surprise you. Also work harder on topic you’re not so confident in.

For English, honestly listen to your teachers advice and don’t do what I did and leave the NEA to the last minute (if you have one), also if you’re not adding context, the most you can get is 16/25 marks (which is approx a B grade), so add the context!!! Also do practice essay plans, they really helped me out

For physics I can’t really help with that haha

A levels are really hard and I know it seems impossible, but trust me it is possible, just takes some work. I wish you the best of luck for your a levels.

I hope this helped
