    I wouldn't be worrying about revision now! I have mocks in a week and I haven't started yet (well I would have started if the teachers weren't still constantly setting loads of homework). You can create revision resources in year 10 but there's little point revising much content (apart from for assessmrnts etc.) as you it is unlikely to be that valuable in the long run

    Sorry that was referring to the PIXL papers. We did them in June and used the official PIXL grade boundaries. 80% is great
    I don't really know what papers we will be doing for mocks as we haven't done them yet, and it hasn't been mentioned. We have been given the specimen papers set 2 for revision though, so I assume it's not them!
