    To anyone who does badly in your mocks, remember this quote pls "When you prohibit failure you kill innovation" (commonly agreed idea) which I believe can be translated to "When you prohibit failure you kill your chances of reaching you potential." It is absolutely imperative failure in mocks can be taken as a positive and used a fuel for motivation. Be willing to fail and then you will do your best in everything you try and wont be held back by anything...

    For my A2 mocks I got:
    Biology: A, Although if I converted my mark to UMS it would have achieved full UMS, so maybe A*?
    French: B, Pretty happy considering we hadn't gone through one of the topics that came up and also a B in the oral
    Psychology: A* for both papers

    Thank you

    My exam boards for biology and psychology are WJEC and OCR respectively. I can't give specific advice for AQA unfortunately but for biology in general I made revision cards with the topics and also did a lot of past papers (I was given packs for specific topics, so I did those as well as full papers). I think past papers are really important for exam technique and knowing what sort of answers examiners are looking for.

    For psychology I did the same thing- I'm not sure about AQA but with OCR it's mainly theories and case studies to back those up. I just made revision cards with those and got my mum to test me on them until I was falling asleep! Practising is also important here too.

    Hope this helps
