    Hi Ok, I've just done my mocks for my first modules in my AS levels and my exams for them start in May and end in June. I'm a bit of a worrier and i just wondered if those results are anything to go by as to what i might get in my final grade. I have asked others and they said it's early days but still, a mock is a mock.
    What grades should i be getting this early on if say, i am aiming for straight A's in 4 A-levels? Thankyou
    The subjects i have taken are Biology,Chemistry,Maths and Physics.

    It really depends. For instance, if you didn't put a lot of work in and didn't get good grades, that's hardly surprising. Similarly, exam technique can take time to perfect, so if that was where you fell down, then that's easily fixable by the time of the exam. However, I'd be a bit more worried if you worked really hard for them and made mistakes from not understanding - that doesn't meant that you couldn't turn it around, just that you need to work to make sure you understand it. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that the reason you got what you got influences how much you can tell from them. If your teachers are fine with what you got, then I'm sure everything will be okay!

    I don't think it really matters as it isn't a true representation of where you'll be in a couple of months time. I got a C in chemistry and an A in my biology mock and I'm also aiming for straight As. Whatever the result, I'd say ignore it because on the day many factors can contribute to how well you do. Personally a mock is to simply point out your weaknesses for you to improve on, although doing well can be a confidence booster
