    Unless you really do try, mocks don't indicate what you'll actually get

    I got b's in mocks but got a's and an a* in the real thing. I know people who revised lots for mocks and did well and so felt too confident for the summer and revised less so subsequently did worse😁

    If you get disappointing grades in your mocks like I did, use them to think about where you went wrong and how you can do better in the future. I haven't taken my actual GCSE's yet but now I understand how to improve and what to do to do really well in them

    I did 1000x better in my real exams than my mocks, your mocks are just a learning experience, if you make mistakes then that is great! Because you know you won't make mistakes in your real exams, I didn't get a single A* in my mocks and then got 6A*s and 5A*s in my exams! Don't stress out too much!!

    OKAY so I really want to know what other people got for their mocks GCSEs compared to their real ones in the summer, i feel really disheartened now because my first few haven't gone too well (im partway through). I didn't revise as much as i normally would because i had some other things going on and i am so so scared and worried because my target grades are high

    In my mocks i got B, 3C's, 4D's, E, F, U
    In my actual GCSE's i got 4A's 5B's and 2C's
    Im sure you will do brilliantly, do the work and you will be fine. In my mocks i did next to no revision and then worked so hard for my actual grades. Hard work pays off

    I can't remember my exact mock grades but I definitely remember I did far far far better in my real GCSE's. Like I got a D in Geography in my mock, then revised the facts (the stuff that gets you the marks) and got an A in my GCSE.
