    Ok I've just done my mock gcse exams and I get the results the second day back in January. I'm supposed to be one of the A* students with all but one of my expected grades being a/a* (b for Rs). I know that I'm going to be far away from these results in my mocks and I'm thinking maybe Cs and even maybe Ds for some subjects... If this is the case will any of my subject teachers say anything? Will my head of year speak to me?! (Basically do the same thing as head of years but for a 3rd of the school, we also have a head of pastoral care) will my form tutor speak to me?! Or do you think they will just ignore it because I am known to be a very hardworking student? Will they be cross?
    Anybody else got experience of how schools deal with underachievement in mocks?!

    I think they would be more likely to give you extra support, if anything. That's what happened at my school with a few subjects.
    As you've said, you're a hardworking student, so I can't imagine that they would be cross with you. Also, at this point, you may still get better results than you're expecting. At GCSE, it isn't impossible to move up several grades between now and June.
    Basically, don't worry about it! Create your own plan of action about how to improve, and that will make you feel a tad better about the results too

    Don't worry at all bro. GCSE is very easy to catch up bro. For GCSE I got 1 A*, 6 A's and 6 B's.

    For A-level am doing Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Economics.

    For my mocks I got a D for Maths, D for Biology, E for Chemistry and a C for economics.

    Wait till you get to A-level its going to be much more content and work to do. For A-level you can't do last minute revision its impossible.

    A-level is much more important than GCSE. I need to get straight A's in my A-levels to get into medicine! It will be tough!

    Dont worry about GCSE!

    hello, i'm still in Yr 11 but i'm considering taking the same A-level as you.. but i'm kinda unsure about taking Economics because i didn't do it as a GCSE, how are you finding the course? is it really diffcult?.. would you recommand me taking it as an A-level even if i didn't do it at GCSE?

    When i did my mocks a year ago i came out with similar results and i found it all depends on the teacher some felt the need to be rude about it others knew i could sort it out myself so i guess i kind of depends on the teacher. I'm sure you have done better thank you think though

    Only you'll know yourself I think, since we don't know you or your teachers But I don't think you should worry I imagine a few others may underachieve too :yep: At most they'll probably just ask you about it and give extra support, I think

    Thank you. I will just need to see what I get... I don't think they would necessarily be cross at me as an individual... But I was wondering whether one teacher eg my form tutor would ask me and try to help me...
    I didn't have a lot of time to revise for mocks because they were still giving out homework and I had some coursework which needed to be done at home... So for the real things I am going to do a revision timetable and stick to it

    I'm aware of how hard A level is and I'm really worried about it especially because of how hard I am finding gcse.. I don't even have a clue what a levels to take... And I don't even do last minute revision for gcse when I can...
    Oooh medicine! Good luck!

    Thank you. I hope that I have done better than I think... I hope no teacher is rude to me... Tbh I kinda wish that my head of year would see and then ask to speak to me so that I would have somebody to speak to.. Because I do feel that I need a bit of help...

    Yeah my science teachers were horrible to me last year but tbh it just made me want to prove them wrong! Yeah you should speak to your tutor hopefully they can help you or someone else perhaps a teacher if your tutor was a bad as mine !

    Hi Agent Solid, I want to study medicine too, I am in year 11. I have 4 months left until the exam. Do you think that is enough to improve and get at least 3 or 4 A*? I got two As, three Bs, three Cs and one C in my mock. Do you think I can improve?

    I wouldn't worry yet! I got a D in my History mock exam, I picked my act up and revised like mad for the exams and got 189/190. It's definitely doable.
