Is is too late? Or can I turn things around?

  • 1 vote

This is the first time I've ever posted on this website, so I hope you people can help me! 

I'm currently in year 12 studying AS Level Maths, Economics, Biology, and English Literature.

I got pretty good GCSEs, but this year I've struggled with the step up.

The grades I've been getting this year in general work has been poor, and my motivation has been pretty low. 

IS IT TOO LATE to turn things around, realistically?
My exams are mid-May, and I would love the confidence to turn things around and hopefully get A's.

Can someone offer me some advice who has experience of AS levels?

Thanks in advance!

You can always always ALWAYS turn things around!

Sure, you've been getting low grades in the past, but the first step for turning things around is the fact that YOU want to!

Studying isn't that hard really-if you want the grades. Make sure you have the support you need! Make notes, maintain a healthy diet, get plenty of sleep and excercise, be confident, concentrate in class, try to be at school everyday and you'll be sure to see a huge improvement!

You've already tackled the first hurtle-the fact that you want to change and turn things around is brilliant news! Good luck and I wish you all the very best! :)

It's never too late!!

Just start revising from now and you'll do fine ^^

A-levels aren't that much harder than GCSE's, it's just that there's so much more content to learn and remember so it's best if you start revising early.... even earlier than you did for your GCSE's!! :D

Hope this helped!!

Good luck with your revision and exams ^^

((BTW, you'll do great :D))

It's a few years later, how did you do in the end?
