basically last yr, during my AS's i hardly studied. however i learnt my lesson and from the day i recieved my AS results i started revising as much as i could. this jan, i re-sat chem module 2 (edexcel) and i was planning to resit mod1 and 3 in june. i also sat the module 4 exam in jan.
even though i worked so hard and revised so much from september i still got a C for mod2 and a D for mod4. i got my papers back and realised that this was mostly because of my wording that i lost marks. however i think that because my basic knowledge for mod 1 is not there i cant do well.
in june i plan to sit mod 1,3,4,5,6.
since im starting from scratch with lack of time, is there a chance for me to get up2 a B at least??

Maybe if you study really hard, but I'm assuming you're doing other subjects as well? If so, you could end up doing not so great on the chemistry AND ruining your other grades. It depends if you really think you can do it.

It's not looking good, especially if you only got a C second time round with lots of revision. Maybe you should practice your exam technique...

Try doing A LOT of past papers and check your answers, then make sure in the exam you put what the examiners are looking for.

However, don't give up, just work your ass off...

It certainly is a lot of work
How are your other subjects doing?
If you can organize your revision well, than i'm sure you have a chance.
What i would do is go through the syllabus, learn everything, and then do questions from past papers.

Don't feed the troll! :O He's gon' like the attention now.

Well, it will be difficult, but considering that a B is around 65% you should be able to revise up to that point. Like everyone else, do a couple of hours of chem a day. No distractions; no facebook; only you, your materials and cake.

Good luck!

No hope. Kill yourself now.

Nah, just work as hard as you can, do loads of past papers, and maybe attend some revision classes / courses and maybe consider getting a tutor?

I really doubt it but obviously only you really know if you can do it or not.
