    i'm so worried for my real gcses.

    the mock exam (our school does it in dec/jan before the may exam) counted towards our half-term report card and was really important. so i went online and searched for all the past papers because i knew they would just take an old past paper for our 'mocks'. at first when i did the past papers i got Bs/low As, because I didn't study before it. then i just learned all my mistakes by heart and got high A*s in the mocks.

    But i'm so worried, because you're support to treat the mocks like a real exam and work super hard for it, but i took the 'easy' way out and I am really scared that in the real exam i won't get the A*s that were predicted, but the B's/As that I originally got when i did the papers myself.

    anyone ever been in this situation before?? advice please!! feeling desperate and clueless :eek:
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
