What happens if I do worse than my mocks?

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    It really worries me, when I got one of the highest in the December mocks, but fail my real GCSEs. I just have so much pressure form peers and teachers. I don't think I can face the fact I will let so many people down

    My mocks grades were as follows:
    GCSE Biology A*
    GCSE Business Studies A
    GCSE Chemistry A*
    GCSE English Language A*
    GCSE English Literature A*
    GCSE French B
    GCSE Geography A*
    GCSE History A
    GCSE Mathematics A*
    GCSE Physics A*
    GCSE Religious Studies (Full) A*

    Apparently if you fail the real exams, the examiners would use the grade you earned from the mocks. Emphasis on the "apparently," this was a rumor I heard but I am incredibly doubtful of that being true. Otherwise if everybody earned straight A's in their mocks and failed the real exams, everybody would get A's and that would be ridiculous.

    If you didn't do as well in your mocks then the answer to your question is in the question. You just don't do as well and you have to accept it.

    The government will corrupt. A tsunami will occur in central London. Your future will spontaneously combust and life will cease to exist as we know it.
