TBH, tbh.
As long as you can get to the NEXT LEVEL OF EDUCATION
And you can do A level subjects (even if they're not the ones YOU want to do)
It'll be fine :smile:

JUST make sure to smack yourself over the head repeatedly and think of how much of a poor investment you were for your parents and you shouuld be alright. Compare yourself to all those "smart" people in class, think of how many burger patties you'll be filling at your 9-5 shift in the future. Think of the things you could've done and mourn. Cry. Hate yourself for EVERY PART OF IT.

Then just find another spot to revise, seriously. I keep watching youtube in my room, so I'm forcing myself to revise in the presence of SOMEONE ELSE in order to make myself seem good by revisaing it actually worked! Not only do I falsely show my passion and regularity in revision, but I aid my efficiency for revision for an exam I had 2 years to prepare for.

Am i waffling considerably? Yes. But, am I not dwelling on the past? (previously, yes - but NOW i dont care. I am NOT GONNA PROCRASTINATE AND IM GONNA THINK OF HOW MUCH OF A FAILURE I AM)

GCCSES ARE EASY EVERYPNE.
THINK OF IT LIKE THIS:
- they built these exams for us, SPECIFICALLY TAIL:ORD FOR 15 16 YEAR OLDS
- dont get disheartened, make use of time

Don't be scared, Be prepared - you'd only be prepared if you started like 2 months , (something I never did)

Im prolly gonna not revise after this aswell im such a hypocrite

JUST REVISE GUYS IN ANOTHER ROOM
I was predicted A*s for everything, not getting that no more

Gcses are the most useless qualifications after sats in year 6 (apart from certain universities, like oxford) - a levels matter way more.
Don't overthink it, just do what you need to do now and don't dwell on the regret.
At this point, be efficient, go through past papers and review topics you are weak in - pls don't go to easy topics, cuz you'll ace those anyway.
PMT and MME revise and Maths Genie have good resources.
Good luck and you can do this!

Just revise the main subjects. What did u get in mocks!


bro dont even get me started on my mocks okay.
The subject that I am most confident in was english cz I got 9 for year 10 summative also I got 9 for my english lit.
HOWEVER I went down to a grade 8 for yr 11 summative ( but its fine cz its JUST A 8)....but gurly let me tell u yh, we had mocks like 1-2 months later and I DROPPED BY 6 GRADES FOR ENGLISH LIT......LIKE HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE.....and for english lan I GOT A 5 BECAUSE I ONLY WROTE LIKE 1 PARAGRAH ( INTRO) FOR THE 40 MARKER.

what upsets me the most is that THE FREAKING ENGLISH TEACHER SAID I LOOKED TO MUCH INTO THE TEXT AND I SAID THEY DISAGEE WITH MY POINTS ( THEY EVEN WROTE THAT ON MY FREAKING EXAM PAPER)...............
AND HOW TF DID I GET GRADE 8 FOR GEOGRAPHY WHEN I REVISED FOR THE MOCKS AT LUNCH TIME B4 THE EXAM.
now I HAVE MY FREAKING Sociology exam tmr and i dont even know anything like please GOD GIVE ME 1 YEAR, JUST 1 MORE YEAR, NO JUST 1 MONTH AND I WILL REVISE UNTILL MY EYES BLEED.

anyways thx for listening to my rant.
ALSO MY SCHOOL FREAKING MESSED UP WITH MY GRADES AND GAVE MY RAW MOCK GRADE FOR SOME OF MY SUBJECTS TO MY SIXTHFORMS.

anyways, I have sociology and biology tmr.
next week I have so many exams, can someone tell me how to revise cz i dont know since i have never even properly revised for any of my tests. oh yh how tf do i even revise for maths last min.

Not gonna lie, I just revise the night before and hope for the best. I watch videos on youtube, make notes hoping that my head will blurt it out in the exam and hope for the best. It actually works for me. That is what I have been doing for the past year in mocks and will do in GCSE. Hope that helps.
