    How did your predicted and/or mock GCSE grades match up to your real ones?

    In my mocks I performed reasonably well - 2 As, 7Bs, 1C. Nothing amazing but I didn't exactly work my arse off, I did quite a bit of revision but I could have done alot more than I did.

    In my real GCSEs I really want one or two A*s, around 5As and 5Bs. Anyone think this is a realistic target for myself? Or am I just being too hopeful?

    P.S. sorry if this has been asked numerous times before.. I'm new, I tried to search but I wasn't able to find anything entirely relevant.

    Mocks are nearly always wrong. Revise your arse off (I recommend flash cards) and you can get all A*s if you want :woo:

    Work, that's what I'll suggest.

    I did very little revision (revised on the way to the exam) for both. For me I just got lucky in the mocks with the questions and unlucky in my real exams.
    In my mocks and predicted I got 4A*'s, 3 A's, 3B's and a C. I came out with 3 A's, 5 B's and 3 C's.

    A few of mine were quite inaccurate: (Subject - Predicted - Actual)

    Biology - A - A*
    Physics - A - A*
    History - A - A*
    French - B - A*
    RE - A* - B
    Music - A - C

    (Rest were correct)

    So no, they're not terribly accurate :p:

    Predicted something like 6 A*s and 5 As
    Mocks two months before real exams: Highest was D but mostly U's (which led to an emergency meeting with my parents)
    Real grades: 7A*, 3A, 1B (damn french :mad:)

    in my case, predicted grades were TOTALLY unaccurate. for example, i was predicted a C for english, i ended up with an A; similar for PE, i was expected to get a B, i got an E (!) in real thing.

    Predicted: 8A,2A*.(not too bad)
    Mocks: 6B,3A,1A* (had coursework due in the week after and deliberately didn't revise at all for any subjects)
    Actual: 7A*, 3A (craming revision in the last days before the exams, should have got straight A*s in hindsight)

    the mocks i dont think are to show your capablity but just to get a feel for what the real one's are going to be like. Especially with ours has we hadnt finished the scheme of work so it wasnt complety fair to begin with. In my mocks i got c's d's & an e.
    In the actual ones i got b's& c's
