Everyone says that the school set difficult questions for our trials but that is not a good reason fr me not to get a's. can anyone give me some tips or advice for me to be better? My subjects are Maths, Accounting and Economics. Please help me.

    Sometimes its true that Schools make the mocks a little bit harder to give students a little kick up the backside. Just keep revising and doing past papers looking at the mark schemes and syllabus. Don't go totally over the top with it though like 14 hours a day, 4 hours sleep and 6 for school. Take a break and then go back to it.

    I just feel really awful that my friends get better grades than me even though the paper was supposed to be hard. I basically live in a room of books now. I don't even go for my runs during weekdays anymore.

    Don't compare yourself to your friends. Only person who matters is you so focus on you. Definitely do not do that, go out and still run. You won't take in information as well if your constantly cooped up revising since your brain is probably subconsciously thinking "damn it more revision when will it be over". You need to strike a good ratio. Cause right now your ration sounds pretty close to 95:5 Revision: Relaxation. You should get it to around 65:35 then maybe 70:30. Seriously though your not helping yourself by just going full out revision and sodding everything else its unhealthy.

    That is rather hard to do when i am studying in a residential school. Maybe i'll get to an 85:15 ratio.
