    In my mocks: 1A 4Bs 3Cs 3Ds
    GCSE: 2A*s 3As 2Bs 3Cs 1D
    (The D that I got was the A I got in the mock because the A was only part as coursework counted too and the D I got in my mock was one of the As I got in my GCSES-I turned the grade round 7weeks before the first exam for that subject - proof that if you care (and actively care if you know what I mean) it doesn't matter how hard things are or how bad you r at something, you can change things!!!
    Just work hard and Goodluck!! It's great you've realised you need to work really hard from now cos some people (kinda including me) realise this when they start revising for the final exams

    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
    Lol I just posted something not realising this thread was so old (from last year). Oh well hope you did do well
    It's great you realised you had to work hard from then and not wait till you were revising not your actual GCSEs

    Hey, don't worry. I did really well in my end of year 10 mocks and then really badly in my year 11 mocks (at least for me- I go to a grammar school so there's a lot of competition and pressure). I got a d and a c- I'd never got one before and it really showed how important revision is. For my year 10 mocks I revised loads and did so well and then in year 11 I basically did none. However, this really motivated me. Remember that year 11 mocks will often be a lot of the course and you won't have learnt it. My school treated them seriously but if you do badly it really motivates you to revise and get help on any areas you're struggling in. Btw I got 9A*s and 2As in my GCSEs. You'll do great, if you're posting on here you obviously care. Don't let yourself get too worked up though, I had panic attacks and cried several times over mocks and after you've got your GCSE grades you will be able to see that they meant nothing and really aren't important other than a means to help you revise.

    Real thing: A*A*A*AAAABBC

    So pretty similar

    If your mock grades aren't as good as you want them to be don't be disappointed! You still have plenty of time to turn things around

    Nobody needs to stress over GCSE mocks, especially if they've been set straight after Christmas (usually the case) .. it won't be your true representation because you'll have more time and focus in the lead up to the real exams... if you do too well then you're in your comfort zone too much and teachers wont take much notice of you because they think you're doing fine.. where as a little below your predicted grade is a kick up the bum.
    My GCSE mock grades were
    Maths C
    English Lit B
    English Lang A
    Biology D
    Physics E
    Chemistry C
    My results:
    Maths A
    English Lang A
    Biology B
    Physics B
    Chemistry C

    Although schools literally jam it into us that mocks are very important, they are not. Trust me. If u do not do as well as u had wished, move on. Find the motivation to do well in your actual exams. For example, for my science I got cbc and came out with a* a* c. All it takes is a little revision and hard work, and you will be absolutely fine 😃😃
