    I know what you mean! I did the IGCSE Eng Lang. and i opened the paper and i genuinely thought to myself 'wait wtf? I haven't seen this paper before' and i spent the first 5 minutes just thinking about how stupid i am XD i was so ready for another past paper
    Omfg same here! I literally spent 10 mins daydreaming so I wasted time had to rush my last paragraph in q2 but I am pretty sure I got at least 6/10!

    I went in thinking it's a mock and came out thinking it's a mock. The fact that it said 2016 instead of 2015, 2014 etc didn't even hit me that it was the real exam! I think it's better to think it's a mock because you don't have really bad nerves haha. However, some people might not take mocks seriously so thinking it's a mock wouldn't benefit them!

    My first exam's Tuesday. I'm pretty nervous and worried about my approach but I'm trying to keep on top of things. I've put lots of time and effort into these exams but now it's just applying it – nervous that I'll forget all when I step in the room

    I've been revising since February time but now I'm worrying that it wasnt good quality revision. I can't relax and feel stressed 24/7. I'm most worried for English because it's a really important subject and I really struggle at it. Other than that I feel quite confident with the other exams (but stressed that I might not fet all As and A*s).

    Yeah it's so true, once your in the exam hall it doesn't feel real.

    I try to but I find it really difficult!

    You'll probably all hate me for saying this, but I'm looking forward to the Science and Maths Exams as they are my strongest point.
    Thankfully, AQA saved the best for last!
