    In my mocks I got B's C's and D's. I didn't put any effort into them, they aren't worth stressing over. I did 12 subjects.

    Ugh Mocks.

    Start them tommorow, my school are treating them like they're important as well. It sucks, you need to get 48 points from them to get an offer from the school -.-.

    Got 6 A and 4 A*s- They're are very important, they use them to make a predicted grade for you, which is what will be sent of to sixth forms/colleges.

    *They're very important.

    Your predicted grade in English might differ.

    I see what you mean- with c/w and whatnot. But there is no reason why for example if you got an A* in you mock paper (for both Eng Lit & Lang) that you shouldn't get at least a minimum of A as predicted.

    Oh definitely. It's a lot more accurate rather than them trying to pull out some statistics from your year 7 work like idiots. -_-

    I know exactly what you mean! Our school system takes your CATS and SATS exams into account to come up with a predicted grade. Bloody stupid I know.

    We just done our science ones
    i do OCR gateway separates and got A* in physics A in Chemistry and B in biology it was pretty difficult i expected C's.
    for those that are in year 11 i don't understand why you don't take mocks seriously, those are the grades the colleges are looking for when they get references so if you don't bother much it won't look that great.

    In my school mocks are important because it determines whether or not you get entered for Foundation. If you got below a C in Maths or English for example, then you'd probably sit the Foundation in the real exam.

    Colleges also ask for them but who says you have to give your real results? What they don't know, won't hurt them.

    Nevertheless, I got:

    History - 39/50 (B?)
    English Lanauge - Not sure, probably an A.
    Geography - Couldn't be bothered to go.
    Citizenship - A or A*
    Maths - B
    Science - C (missed out on stupid marks)

    I'm doing 10 subjects.
