    I was doing History F966 today, which consists of to 60 mark essays. I felt the first 60 mark question went great, but the second one, I was not able to finish my 2nd section fully, attempt my 3rd section and my conclusion was a general one line conclusion.

    I got about 75% in my mock, which is 101 UMS according to the January grade boundaries (yes I know the mock doesn't use the same grade boundaries as the January exams). 101 UMS is just about what I need to get an A* in History.

    However, I don't think the actual exam, which I sat today, went anywhere near as well as my mock. I'm not even sure I'll get an A because of how I feel it went. It sucks because I feel my understanding of the topic is great but I just don't feel my exam technique is any good.

    Has anyone been through something similar?

    My mocks more or less murdered me then spat on my corpse, so I can't help but disagree.

    We never did mocks
